In 2009, Georgia had 1284 traffic-related fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Over 51% of the fatalities occurred on rural roads. On a daily basis, people spend a significant part of their day on roadways commuting to and from work or school. However, most vehicle accidents occur close—and occur while taking kids to school or running errands.
These vehicle collisions range from slight property damage to serious injuries. Serious, incapacitating and permanent injuries can cause tremendous emotional and financial hardships to individuals and their family members. When a person loses a companion or treasured family member, the loss is even more devastating.
While no amount of money can compensate for injuries or death, you must take decisive action to protect your rights and financial interests.
The law firm of Eric J. Hertz, P.C., offers free case evaluations. We will discuss the circumstances surrounding your vehicle accident, including injuries sustained and the appropriate manner to proceed with your damage claim.
The Law Entitles You to Compensation
Georgia’s law provides an injured person the right to recover for his or her losses, from the party responsible for causing the vehicle accident. The injured party can receive lost wages, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses and other financial losses.
Courts will also award the victim for pain and suffering caused by the injury and medical treatments. The spouse of the injured party can sue to recover for loss of companionship or the services of his or her spouse.
Beware of insurance companies that offer a quick settlement to avoid future medical expenses, loss wages and other costs. You deserve to receive full and fair financial reimbursement for your injuries or loss.
Chose an Experienced Georgia Car Accident Attorney
Our experienced and knowledgeable car accident attorneys will conduct an evaluation of the driver’s conduct and other evidence to determine fault for the car accident, which includes conducting interviews, reviewing medical records and scouring the Georgia traffic crash report and site of the accident.
In Georgia, drivers must carry a minimal amount of liability insurance coverage. However, the coverage may not cover the full extent of the damages to the injured party. Eric J. Hertz, P.C. understands that the responsible party may have coverage under the insurance policy of a car rental firm, employer, or family member.
Allow our attorneys to use their expertise to uncover unidentified persons, government agencies, or other entities, which may have liability for the automobile collision. For example, a roadway construction design or traffic light malfunction may have contributed to the accident.
