Maximize your Recovery with Athens, GA Car Accident Attorneys

What damages are you entitled to recover for the injuries you suffered in an automobile accident? Is your recovery limited to medical expenses and/or lost wages? What is a fair settlement value for your particular case? We can help you answer these and other questions you might have about your auto insurance claim.

Individuals who fail to consult a lawyer often do not recover all the compensation they deserve. This happens most often when people settle with the insurance company too quickly before they know the full extent of their injuries or expenses. Once a claim is settled and a full and complete release is signed, it is probably too late to seek additional compensation even if your injuries linger or require additional treatment. You should never settle without first consulting an attorney with experience handling automobile injury claims.

To learn more about your right to recover for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, punitive damages and other potential damages, consider the following:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes all costs related to medical treatment, such as hospital bills, surgeries, doctor visits, prescription medications, rehabilitation and future medical care.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for the income you have lost due to being unable to work due to the accident. This can also include future earning capacity if your injuries impact your ability to work in the future.
  • Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages that compensate for physical pain, emotional distress and mental anguish caused by the accident and your injuries.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases of extreme negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault party and deter similar behavior in the future.
  • Property Damage: Compensation for the repair or replacement of your vehicle and any other property damaged in the accident.
  • Loss of Consortium: If the accident results in a loss of companionship or ability to maintain a normal relationship with your spouse or family members, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium.
  • Disfigurement or Disability: Compensation for any permanent scarring, disfigurement or disability resulting from the accident.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation for the loss of ability to participate in activities or hobbies you enjoyed prior to the accident due to your injuries.
  • Emotional Distress: Compensation for the psychological impact of the accident, such as anxiety, depression or PTSD.

Understanding your rights and options before accepting any settlement offer is crucial. To ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve, contact an experienced automobile accident attorney at Burnside Law Firm LLP for a free initial consultation.

How Should You Respond to the Insurance Company’s Phone Calls?

When you or a member of your family are involved in an automobile accident, how should you respond when the insurance company contacts you? What should you do when the insurance adjuster calls requesting a recorded statement? What if the insurance adjuster offers to pay for damage to your car or possibly some of your medical expenses but wants you to sign documents in exchange for payment? Should you sign them? These are critical questions that require careful consideration and legal guidance.

When the insurance company contacts you, remember that they are not necessarily looking out for your best interests. Their primary goal is to minimize their own liability and payout. Therefore, it’s advisable to proceed cautiously and seek legal advice before communicating or signing any documents. An experienced attorney can provide the guidance and representation you need to protect your rights and pursue the full compensation you deserve.

For help answering these and other questions that may arise following an automobile accident, contact one of the experienced automobile accident attorneys at Burnside Law Firm LLP. Our team is dedicated to advocating for your rights and helping you navigate the complexities of the legal process to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
