Types of Car Accidents We Handle

Our attorneys are prepared to represent people injured in all kinds of car accidents, including:

  • T-bone collisions. These are side-impact crashes where one car hits another at a 90-degree angle. T-bone collisions often happen at intersections where one motorist runs a red light and slams into the side of another legally moving through the intersection.
  • Sideswipes. Two vehicles travelling parallel to each other can collide. Often, one motorist does not check their blind spot when trying to merge or pass on the highway.
  • Head-on collisions. These deadly, high-speed accidents can cause unimaginable damage. Head on collisions often occur when a drowsy or intoxicated motorist drifts into oncoming traffic.
  • Rear-end collision. A fender bender can happen when one vehicle follows another too closely and has insufficient time to brake.
  • Rollovers. A vehicle can roll onto its side or roof when the wheels hit an obstruction, such as soft dirt on the shoulder.

Car Accident Injuries

The injuries a motorist suffers will depend on many factors, such as the type of accident and how fast the vehicles were going. Some injuries are minor and will heal on their own within a couple months. Other injuries can turn a victim’s life upside down. We have seen people show up to our office with:

  • Sprains, strains, and other soft-tissue injuries. These can cause swelling and discomfort and might keep you out of work for a few weeks. Serious soft-tissue injuries probably require surgery and will require a longer recovery.
  • Fractures. A broken bone might require surgery to insert a pin, screw, or plate to hold the pieces of bone together.
  • Burns. Second- and third-degree burns can require skin grafts. Road rash is a very serious type of friction burn that a person can suffer if they are thrown from the vehicle.
  • Traumatic brain injuries. Any hard shaking of the head can disrupt how the brain functions. Victims can experience problems with memory, coordination, balance, cognition, and sleep.
  • Back injuries. Slipped disks between the vertebrae can cause constant, immobilizing pain and require surgery to fix.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Damage to our spinal cords can cause paralysis or loss of sensation. Rehabilitation is only sometimes helpful.

After the accident, make it a priority to obtain medical attention as soon as possible.

How Can a Car Accident Lawyer in Porterdale Help?

Bringing a claim for compensation is often harder than most people realize. In addition to working with insurance adjusters, a victim needs to prioritize his or her recovery. Many people struggle to juggle all their competing obligations.

With a Porterdale GA car accident attorney in your corner, you can focus on your recovery while your lawyer tackles the legal issues. An attorney should begin gathering evidence to use for your claim, including copies of the police report, witness statements, and analysis of the car involved in the crash. Your lawyer will build a case against another driver and hopefully hold that person legally responsible for your injuries.

If another driver’s negligence led to the accident, you can sue for compensation. Most defendants only have their insurance policy to pay out compensation, so you need to carefully review whether you can hold another party responsible. A lawyer will be a big help.

FAQs

What should I do immediately after a car accident?

Contact the police to come to the scene of the accident. Also get medical care for those who are injured. Call emergency services if necessary.

Can I receive compensation if I am partially to blame for the crash?

Yes. Georgia law lets an injured victim receive compensation so long as he or she is less responsible for the accident than other parties. If you are partially to blame, the amount you receive will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
