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.

There are more than 6 million car accidents in the U.S. every year. It’s not hard to imagine that a good number of these involve more than 2 vehicles. A lot of crashes have a domino effect. This is why we see so many stories on the news about huge multi-vehicle accidents blocking the roadways. In fact, some estimate that more than 40% of all accidents involve more than 2 cars.

This means that your Georgia accident lawyer will have to decide how many parties they wish to sue. The good news is that you don’t have to figure this out on your own. All you need to do is call our office and schedule your free consultation. Let them review your case and answer any questions you may have.

Your Georgia Will Likely Name Multiple Parties in Your Lawsuit

Since more than a third of all motor vehicle crashes involve 3 or more cars, you may need to pursue more than one party. Years ago, if you filed a multiple-party lawsuit in Georgia, the court would treat them as a collective unit. This was called joint and several liability. This means that they used to say that the defendants – all the defendants – were equally liable for your damages

You could go after one defendant for the whole thing, or you could try to collect an equal amount from each party. In 2005, this changed. Now the courts have the verdict break down how much each party is responsible for. This is done based on their percentage of fault.

The way this is done is based on their proportion of fault. Imagine that you sue three drivers for a total of $300,000. If you filed suit in 2004, each defendant would’ve been liable for the whole $300,000. As payments were made, regardless of who made the payment, the total amount owed by the defendants would still be the same.

However, since your accident took place in 2021, those old rules no longer apply. If you sued 2 parties for damages, it would be apportioned based on their fault. If defendant A was deemed 40% responsible, they would have to pay $120,000. If the other defendant was 45% at fault, they would be responsible for $135,000. That means that you’d be held liable for the remaining 35%. Your total damages would be $255,000.

Is One Defendant Clearly at Fault?

One thing your Georgia accident lawyer will consider is whether one party was mostly at fault. For example, imagine that there is a 3-car accident in Carrollton. One driver was parked at the time so they have no liability. Another car was at a red light and took off a bit too early. At the same time, another car was speeding through the intersection. Car C hits Car B and they both slam into you.

Who would be at fault in this case? The party mostly at fault is Car C. However, Car B is partly responsible because they didn’t wait for the light to turn green before they crept into the intersection. In this case, your attorney would be likely to sue Car C as opposed to Car B. The good news is that they don’t need to make this decision. They’ll just name them both in the lawsuit.

Which One of the Defendants Has More Assets?

Another thing your Georgia accident lawyer must take into account is the defendants’ assets. It makes more sense to go after the person with property and a ton of other assets. You’ll be much more likely to get a settlement out of them compared to a drive with absolutely no assets. Of course, at the end of the day, you and your attorney don’t care who pays, as long as your damages are paid.
