In cases involving personal injuries and accidents, determining what your claim is worth is more than just adding up medical bills and damages to property. It is important to take into consideration the impact your injury could have on your life in the future, psychically, emotionally, and financially. When determining what your injury claim may be worth, it is important consider the following factors:

  • The potential for suffering chronic conditions, with could result in periodic relapses and require ongoing treatment;
  • The impacts health problems could have now and in the future on your ability to participate in activities and do the things you enjoy;
  • The potential for permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Lasting disabilities that could affect your ability to work in your chosen field and could impact your earning potential and future savings.

All of these things and more need to be carefully considered when calculating the total amount your personal injury claim may be worth. Unfortunately, these are often the type of expenses that are either left out or underestimated when dealing with insurance companies. To get a truly accurate estimate of what your claim is worth is to contact our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys for a free case review.

In the aftermath of an accident, injured victims often mistakenly believe that the insurance company is on their side and will help them to get the amount of compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The insurer is operating a business, and like any business, their bottom line is making money. In order to accomplish this, companies often limit administrative costs by limiting the amount of time and effort spent on each claim, with the result being that offers to settle your claim may be far less than what you expected or what your case is actually worth. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance, avoid signing an insurance release accepting settlement of your accident claim before doing the following:

  • Conducting your own investigation into the costs associated with replacing or repairing any property damaged in the accident;
  • Speaking with your doctor about the prognosis for your injuries, any future treatments you may require, and any lasting effects or disabilities you may suffer;
  • Keeping a written record of all bills and statements you have received, as well as all correspondence you have had with the company and its representatives; and
  • Consulting with a legal professional before signing a release accepting a settlement amount.

You have one chance to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It pays to have our experienced personal injury attorneys working on your behalf and negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

In the aftermath of an accidental injury, it does not take long for medical bills to come flooding in. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these bills and other costs associated with your injuries. How do you manage these medical costs while waiting for your case to settle? You can always elect to have your bills paid through your own private insurance. If you do this, you are still free to receive compensation for these costs through your insurance claim or through a personal injury lawsuit. Your other option is to have our attorneys file a letter of protection on your behalf with your medical providers. This letter lets them know that you are involved in a lawsuit, and assures creditors that they will be paid through the proceeds of your suit or claim.

While most accident victims want to get the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, many have concerns about actually taking their cases to court. According to statistics from Black’s Law Dictionary, in approximately 95 percent of personal injury cases, the injured party receives a settlement without ever having to step foot in a courtroom. A major reason that insurance companies are willing to settle is that a court proceeding will likely result in increased costs, such as court fees and legal expenses.

Any money saved by offering you less than what your claim is worth is cancelled out by these costs. Additional motivation for at-fault parties to settle is that if a claim amount cannot be agreed upon and the case goes to trial, a judge will then set the amount, which is again likely to involve additional costs, thereby eliminating any savings for the insurer or at fault party.

Malpractice Types: Navigating Legal Waters in Medicine

Medical malpractice is a complex and sensitive issue that affects patients, healthcare providers, and the legal system. With its significant impact on patient safety and the medical profession, it is crucial to understand the different

It’s heartbreaking when your insurance company says they’re going to deny your insurance claim. It often means that you’ve violated your insurance policy in some way. For many, it segues into the problem of not being able to seek compensation for your damages as well. That double-whammy is hard to take, but you have options to fight it.

Any crash can leave people injured, and plenty of people will go through and try to seek compensation. But when you have a denial for a BAC level, you’ll have to fight hard to prove that the fault lies with the other driver. It’s not something that comes along very often, but having a BAC does not inherently mean you’re at fault. Instead, it means you may have contributed in some small way, but not in any meaningful manner.

What Is An Alcohol Exclusion Law?

In the shortest possible way, an alcohol exclusion law allows insurance companies to avoid paying for treatment when alcohol is present. Initially, the goal of these types of requirements was to establish a definite consequence for driving under the influence. That if you were driving drunk, then you weren’t covered.

While the alcohol exclusion law seems pretty reasonable, it brought with it a lot of unexpected consequences. Doctors were unsure if they could treat patients if they only worked on a specific medical network. Others did provide treatment and left the patient with ridiculous amounts of medical debt that they probably weren’t likely to ever pay.

Inpatient treatment after an auto collision averages $11,260 per person. That’s not even a “bad” crash or a vehicle with multiple people in the car. The alcohol exclusion law is good in theory; however, many states have started to change the laws to better serve the medical community.

Georgia still has an alcohol exclusion law. However, they permit coverage for the victim. Basically, the liability remains intact, but all other coverage is gone. Insurance companies in Georgia have the right to terminate the policy because of a BAC as well.

But I Was Under The Limit –Does It Matter?

Typically if you’re under the limit, then you’re fine. However, if you were driving erratically or dangerously, then you will likely face a negligence or carelessness allegation. Often that situation is called a “wet reck” for wet and reckless. This could also lead to your insurance provider dropping your policy. Insurance companies operate as businesses, not a government program that everyone has a right to. In many of their policy terms, you’ll find statements that end with, “will result in the immediate termination of your policy.”

If your BAC was above zero, but below the legal limit, then there really is no direct reason for your policy to end. Additionally, your policy should also acknowledge that having a BAC above zero does not automatically make you the at-fault party.

Contesting The Insurance Claim Denial

Denial of an insurance claim is rather uncommon. Now the adjuster may have believed that you contributed to the crash, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t get approval for your claim. When you receive a claim denial, you’ll need to go through line-by-line and assess why it was rejected.

If the insurance company wants to deny your claim because you were under the influence, you could argue that determination. For example, if you were in a really bad wreck, and during your hospital admittance, your bloodwork came back with a 0.02% BAC, that’s not reasonable. However, if you drove into a building with a BAC of 0.20%, then that’s a little different.

We understand that you’re the victim; you were hit. And suddenly it’s unbelievable hard to work with a company you’ve paid for years.

Finding support after a drunk driving accident is tough. But, it’s worse when you were actually okay to drive. Now, you’re the victim of a car accident, but no one really sees it that way. Your BAC might have been above zero, but if it was under the legal limit, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have your claim processed.
