What to Do After a Car Accident in McDonough, GA

After an auto accident, it is essential that plaintiffs take the proper steps to protect their ability to pursue financial compensation. Sadly, insurance companies are aggressive and they will try to take advantage of even the smallest of mistakes. If you were injured in a traffic accident in Georgia, you should be sure to do the following four things:

 

  1. Seek a comprehensive medical evaluation from a qualified physician;
  2. Report the crash to the McDonough Police Department or the Henry County Police Department;
  3. Obtain relevant evidence from the accident scene, including taking photographs and getting witness information; and
  4. Call an experienced McDonough, GA car accident lawyer before you give a statement to an insurance adjuster.

How to Hold Negligent Parties Legally Liable

Georgia is a fault-based auto accident jurisdiction. Under Georgia law, the party who was responsible for causing a traffic accident should be held liable for the resulting damages. Negligence is the failure to take due care. In the majority of auto accident claims, a driver will be at fault for the wreck. Though, other parties, including vehicle manufacturers or roadway designers, may also be held responsible in certain circumstances.

 

To hold a negligent defendant liable, injured victims need strong and well-organized evidence. Unfortunately, at-fault drivers may try to deny their own culpability. The more evidence that you have, the better off you will be. Our McDonough, GA car accident lawyers always conduct a comprehensive investigation and in-depth analysis of every crash. We will put together all of the information that you need to build a successful legal claim.

Auto Accident Victims Deserve Compensation

Injured victims have a legal right to seek financial compensation for the complete value of their damages. To get full and fair compensation, your damages must be thoroughly documented. Insurance companies use a wide array of tactics to try to settle auto accident injury claims for the lowest dollar figure possible. Plaintiffs need a sophisticated legal representative on their side. At MG Law, our top-rated McDonough, GA personal injury attorneys have the legal skills and tenacity needed to ensure that our clients maximize their financial recovery. Your settlement offer should include money for:

  • Emergency room care;
  • Medical bills;
  • Prescription drugs;
  • Medical equipment;
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Permanent impairment;
  • Loss of life enjoyment; and
  • Wrongful death.

The Driver Who Hit Me was Drunk: Does That Matter?

Yes, it matters. If you were hurt in a DUI accident in McDonough, GA, you need to speak to an experienced drunk driving accident attorney right away. Sadly, intoxicated driving accidents remain far too common. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), approximately 30 Americans are killed in DUI accidents every day — many other innocent victims sustain devastating injuries.  

In Georgia, DUI accident victims may be eligible to recover additional financial compensation beyond the ordinary economic and noneconomic damages. Specifically, punitive damages may be awarded. Under Georgia law (Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 51-12-5.1), punitive damages are awarded to punish the bad actions of a defendant. These damages are often substantial — and they can be awarded in DUI accident claims, especially if the drunk driver acted in a highly reckless manner.
