Car Accident Cases
After suffering an injury in a car accident, you’ll be facing a slew of complicated issues. You might need expensive medical treatment, time off from work, and extensive car repairs. These are things you shouldn’t have to face alone – the person responsible for the accident should be held accountable so that you can afford the care you need to move forward.
At Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys, we handle claims involving car accidents caused by:
- Drunk driving
- Texting and driving and other forms of negligent driving
- Rear-end collisions
- Defective auto parts
- Unsafe road conditions
Fighting Back Against Insurance Companies
Without fail, auto insurance companies always try to pull the wool over the customer’s eyes and manipulate injured drivers into accepting low-ball settlement offers. At Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys, we see right through these tactics and want to make sure you get every penny you deserve. Don’t let the insurance company bully you into less than you are owed – work with our Savannah car accident attorneys to get the most out of your claim.
Accidents Involving an Underinsured/Uninsured Motorist
You may have been involved with a driver who does not have enough insurance – or any insurance at all. In cases where the at-fault driver is uninsured, you should call our Savannah car accident attorneys immediately.
You are still entitled to recovery, which may be possible from:
- Your policy
- Other policyholders in your house
- Other policyholders in the at-fault, uninsured driver’s household
Additionally, multiple insurance policies may be stacked until you are properly compensated for your injuries.
What to Do After an Accident
It’s a good idea to be prepared in case you are ever involved in a car accident. Knowing the right steps to take can improve your chances of recovering compensation if someone else is to blame for the incident.
If you are involved in an accident and suffer an injury, you should:
- Seek treatment at an emergency room or with your primary physician
- Avoid talking to the insurance adjuster about your injuries other than the fact you were hurt
- Seek legal advice from a qualified personal injury attorney
- Follow through with your medical treatment, which decreases the risk of future complications and increases the value of your claim
If you have been involved in a car accident and intend on filing a claim, it’s important that you take the right steps to avoid jeopardizing your claim. Our Savannah car accident attorneys can advise you accordingly.
Factors that could seriously impede your recovery in an auto accident claim include:
- Gaps in medical treatment (missed appointments, etc.)
- Talking too much with the insurance adjuster (we recommend consulting with us before agreeing to speak with the insurance company)
- Settling too quickly
- Not following the doctor’s orders
- Jumping from attorney to attorney
Your Deadline for Filing a Claim
Your auto accident has a deadline for recovery. Auto accident claims against non-governmental insurance providers are limited to two years. If you were involved in an automobile accident with a military or other government vehicle, the statute of limitations for these claims is normally one year.
Additionally Georgia follows a "comparative fault" law. This means that even if you are partially at fault for an accident you are still eligible to recover damages, however, your total compensation amount will be reduced by your percentage of fault. Unlike some states, Georgia does not allow an injury victim who is more than 50% at fault for an accident to pursue compensation for their injuries.
What Damages Are Available?
There are three main types of damages that can be recovered after a car accident. The first type of damage is called economic, or special damages. Economic damages compensate for financial losses sustained as a result of an injury such as medical expenses or missed days at work. Non-economic damages, also called general damages, compensate for more intangible losses such as pain and suffering. Punitive damages, the last type of damages, is different from the first two because their main purpose is to punish the negligent party rather than compensate for specific losses.
