What should I do after a Stockbridge car accident?

Make medical treatment your number one priority. If you feel like you need medical treatment now, go seek it as soon as possible. Apart from seeking medical, it is important that you document the automobile accident. This is very important for any personal injury case. The primary forms of documenting a crash are to take photographs and videos. We give this instruction to each and every client.

What photographs should you take after a Stockbridge car crash?

Accident victims should take photographs of all vehicles involved in the auto accident. When taking photographs of each motor vehicle, it is most important to capture the damage that has been inflicted. Photographs should be taken up close and from far away, and at different angles. Even if the damage seems small, it may be pivotal in your case. Sometimes what seem to be minor injuries at the scene of a car crash manifest themselves into catastrophic injury.

Take photographs of where the motor vehicle accident occurred

It is the job of personal injury lawyer to assist you in telling the story of what happened in your accident. Often times, critical pieces of evidence that your personal injury lawyer can use to build a case that will get you maximum compensation. Make sure that you capture the lanes where the vehicles were traveling at the time of the crash. Stockbridge car accident attorneys can utilize all of these photographs in your personal injury claim. Sometimes the condition of the vehicles may change in the days after the accident. It is important to capture in photographs and video the condition of the vehicles involved at the scene of the crash so that your attorney can demonstrate to an insurance company, judge, or jury an accurate portrayal of how your case came to be.

Take photographs of your injuries after the car crash

Your attorney will seek to obtain compensation for you for your pain and suffering as well as your medical bills and lost wages. For this reason, it is important to document your injuries in photographs. If you have any cuts, scrapes, bruises, swelling, skin discoloration, or any other physical evidence on your body related to your injury, you should take pictures of the affected areas. Your personal injury attorney will be able to portray to others the extent of your pain from the injury by using the photographs. A Georgia personal injury lawyer will also use the photographs to help a jury understand the justification for the medical treatment that lead to you incurring medical bills and other medical expenses. Moreover, if your injuries are debilitating and documented in photographs, a jury will have a better understanding of why you are unable to work and be more likely to award you compensation for lost wages.

Do I need to notify my insurance company after a crash even though I was not at fault?

Before calling any insurance company, you should always consult an experienced lawyer who devotes his practice areas exclusively to personal injury. Normally injury lawyers will communicate on your behalf with all involved insurance companies. Unfortunately when accident victims communicate directly with insurance companies, they often jeopardize their personal injury case by making a statement that could create a perception that the Defendant’s acts do not constitute negligence when in fact they actually do, or that minimize the pain that the victim is actually suffering from at the time of the conversation.

It is most certainly important for the law firm that you hire to contact your insurance company, as well as all other insurance companies of parties involved in the Stockbridge automobile crash. The primary reason that a Stockbridge personal injury lawyer contacts your insurance company is to determine if you have underinsured motorist coverage, or medical payment coverage. For more discussion on underinsured motorist coverage and medical payment coverage, consult the Wolfe Law Group FAQ. Personal injury law in Georgia requires that underinsured motorist carriers receive notice of a personal injury claim within a reasonable amount of time following a Stockbridge personal injury claim. Diligent personal injury lawyers always make sure to contact the underinsured motorist carrier.

What should if I am injured after I slipped and fell in a store?

Go seek medical treatment immediately if you need it and have not done so already. If you have been injured due to a dangerous condition on the premises of a business, you may have a premises liability case. Photographs of the hazard that caused your fall are an extremely important piece of evidence to support any potential claim that you may have against the owner of the property or business that occupies the location. If you have photographs, make sure to preserve them and provide them to your Stockbridge personal injury lawyer during your free consultation.

What if I can never work again due to my injuries?

A catastrophic injury such as a brain injury often results in the victim never being able to return to the work force. In a personal injury case, our Georgia attorney always analyzes whether a lost wage claim exists, for both lost wages already incurred, and lost wages to be incurred in the future. These are classified as “special damages” under Georgia law.

Recovery of the future lost wages of an accident victim will sometimes be limited by the policy limits of the available insurance. This is why in each and every case, our personal injury attorney seeks to discover each and every available policy of insurance that can provide potential sources of compensation for the victims. Sometimes insurance policies other than that of the at-fault driver may be available.
