Newton County Car Accident Attorney

Car accidents remain far too common in Georgia. All cities and towns in our state have felt the terrible impact of motor vehicle collisions. According to data collected and published by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in Georgia, there were 3,162 wrecks reported in Newton County in 2016 alone. While some of these crashes were minor, there were also many serious auto accidents. In all, 812 injuries were reported in Newton County, and there were 21 confirmed traffic deaths.

Car accident victims and their family members must be able to access maximum financial support. Sadly, the big insurance carriers are often difficult to work with. In too many cases, injured victims find that their legal claim has been severely undervalued or even denied outright by the insurer. To ensure that they can get a full their settlement offer, victims should always be represented by an experienced attorney.

At MG Law, our dedicated Newton County car accident attorneys have the skills and legal knowledge needed to hold insurers fully accountable. We are committed to helping car accident victims recover every penny that they deserve. If you or a family member was hurt in a crash in Newton County, please do not hesitate to contact our law office today for free legal guidance.

Common Car Accident Injuries

At MG Law, our car accident lawyers have handled claims involving a wide range of different injuries. We know that when it comes to car accidents, you cannot judge the crash by simply looking at the damaged vehicles. In some cases, victims suffer severe injuries in crashes that appear to be relatively modest. In other cases, people walk away from rollover crashes with little more than a few bruises. Our law firm handles all car accident injury cases. Some common example of auto accident injuries include;

  • Deep bruises;
  • Cuts and lacerations;
  • Broken bones and fractures;
  • Soft tissue injuries, including whiplash;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Concussions and other head injuries;
  • Psychological injuries;
  • Organ damage;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Spinal cord damage;
  • Paralysis; and
  • Fatalities.

Victims Have Limited Time to File a Claim

All car accident injury lawsuits and insurance claims are governed by (Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 9-3-33). This is the state’s two-year statute of limitations. With few exceptions, victims are legally obligated to initiate their legal claim within 24 months of the date of their crash. If the statute of limitations clock expires before action is taken by the plaintiff, a court will likely automatically dismiss the case.

You should not wait to bring your Georgia auto accident claim. The best way to maximize your financial recovery is to get a Newton County personal injury lawyer by your side immediately after your crash. Beyond making sure that you meet all state filing deadlines, your car accident lawyer in Newton County will be able to help you build an effective legal claim, backed by compelling supporting evidence.

Injured Victims Deserve Full Compensation

Our Newton County car crash attorneys understand how badly victims need full compensation for their damages. Under Georgia law, victims can generally only recover financial compensation to the extent that they can prove their losses. Insurance companies will look for any opportunity they can find to deny or undervalue your claim. Our legal team will make sure that your damages (both economic and noneconomic) are properly documented so that you can get the full financial relief that is available. We have helped car accident victims recover financial compensation for:

  • Vehicle damage;
  • Emergency room bills;
  • Long-term medical care;
  • Visits to specialists;
  • Medication;
  • Medical devices;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Disability;
  • Lost income;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental Anguish;
  • Disfigurement; and
  • Wrongful death.

Tips For Dealing With Insurance Adjusters

Most Newton County car accident injury claims are defended by large insurance companies. It is crucial that injured victims remember that these companies are out to make a profit: they are not interested in paying victims a full and fair settlement offer. If an insurer can get away with resolving your claim for less than it is worth, they will almost certainly try to do it. Further, insurance companies put a lot of resources into training their representatives. These insurance adjusters are tasked with protecting the financial interests of their employer. For this reason, you need to be very careful when dealing with insurance adjusters. Please keep the following four tips in mind:

  • Do not give a recorded statement after your accident. The insurance company is looking for information that they can use against you. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to simply stay quiet and work through your car accident lawyer.
  • Never admit fault for the crash. Insurance adjusters love it when people admit or accept that they might be partially at fault for their own crash. This will allow the insurance company to reduce a settlement offer. Do not admit fault, even partially. It is not your job to judge fault.
  • Do not sign any documents. Often, insurance companies try to ask victims for a full release of their medical records after an accident. You do not always have to give them this information. Remember, the company is looking for things to use against you to reduce your compensation. Let your attorney review any documents before you actually sign them.
  • Be patient when negotiating a settlement. One of the first rules of negotiation is that you do not lead with your best and final offer. Insurance adjusters know this rule very well. Companies often try to push injured victims into fast, lowball settlement offer. Be patient. You deserve full compensation for your injuries. Your car accident lawyer in Newton County will make sure that you are getting paid every dollar that you are owed.
