Sadly, millions of people are injured and thousands die in car accidents on Georgia highways and other roadways all throughout the country every year. Car accident injuries can be quite severe and can result in injuries ranging from bone, joint and muscle injuries to more serious conditions, such as lifelong paralysis or even death.
A Peachtree Corners car wreck lawyer with McGahren Law knows that automobile accidents tend to make up the majority of personal injury cases that flow through state court systems annually. Such cases typically involve considerable bodily injury or property damage that can leave harmed individuals and their families personally and financially devastated. The good news is you do not have to feel as though you are alone after an accident — McGahren Law is here to help you get the just compensation you deserve.
How Our Firm Can Help
Individuals who are found to have been the cause of a car wreck might be faced with civil liability, criminal liability or both. Given the complicated nature of many car accidents, it is important for victims and their families to work with knowledgeable lawyers who can review the facts of the case, gather the appropriate evidence and represent their interests in court.
Generally, the civil actions brought by injured auto accident victims deal mainly with questions of fact with respect to who’s at fault and to what extent, as well as how much will have to be paid to the injured individual(s). Having a lawyer by your side to ensure all responsible parties to the accident are held accountable can prove to be invaluable as you work to regain your health and overall standard of daily living.
At McGahren Law, we understand that your health and wellbeing is and should be top priority. That is why we strongly encourage individuals who have been involved in an accident to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident — even if everything seems to be fine. Visiting a doctor after the accident will help ensure that you are, in fact, fine or it will confirm that you sustained an injury that may ultimately worsen as time progresses. Such information is very important, particularly if your case needs to be handled through litigation (as opposed to a settlement).
McGahren Law Works Hard to Ensure Accident Victims Understand the Process
The process involved with obtaining just compensation for your injuries can be a lengthy one. However, our lawyers are here to see you through every step of litigation (should settling prove to be impractical).
The first part of the process involves an initial investigation into the accident. The alleged at-fault driver’s’ insurer will launch an immediate investigation into what happened. But while this is taking place, it is crucial for you to have your own lawyer conducting his or her own investigation in order to determine if negligence was involved or if there was some other reason for the accident.
Next, we will assess your damages to determine the amount of compensation you should receive. This assessment will take into account things such as current and future medical costs, lost income, property damage and even pain and suffering. Once this determination has been made, we will file the necessary paperwork to initiate the lawsuit (if a settlement cannot be reached). These documents will contain your claim with respect to the damages and injuries sustained, and it will also provide information about the other driver who is alleged to have caused your damages.
Again, the process can be long and stressful, but you and your family do not have to go it alone. The lawyers at McGahren Law are here to help you. Contact us today to discuss your rights and options under the law.
