When you have been injured in a car accident in Georgia, you may feel like your life is spinning out of control. That is why it is so important to work with a competent personal injury attorney from the start. An experienced lawyer should be able to explain to you the exact process he or she goes through to obtain a settlement on your behalf. The first thing to do after you have been treated for your injuries is to schedule a free consultation appointment with a personal injury attorney.
When you meet with us at Jason & Bradley, LLC, we encourage you to tell your entire story. We also take detailed notes that include the date and time of the collision, the circumstances leading up to the accident, the name of the other driver and any witnesses. At the end of your consultation, we let you know if you have a case against the other driver.
Assuming that you plan to go ahead with filing a personal injury lawsuit, the next step is to gather evidence by interviewing witnesses to the accident and obtaining the official police report. Next, our lawyers speak to the insurance company representing the other party in the accident. To protect your own interests, you should never give a statement to the other party’s insurance company without your lawyer present. Your attorney may also send you to a doctor to ensure there are no additional injuries.
Once we have gathered all information in your case, we meet with representatives for the other party to come up with a settlement offer. We let you know the terms of the settlement and help you decide if it is right for you. If it is not acceptable, our injury lawyers continue to represent you in court in an attempt to obtain the compensation you deserve.
