Traffic collisions happen when road users least expect them. They can occur in transit, while in slow traffic, or when driving through an intersection. Accidents often leave those involved on opposing sides: the side of the fault driver and the victim.
A driver’s action before the accident often determines whether they are the fault driver or victim. A fault party has liabilities, while a victim is entitled to compensation under Georgia’s fault system. To get compensated, the victim files a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance carrier. If the negotiation fails or the victim receives a low ball settlement offer, they can commence a personal injury lawsuit.
Filing a lawsuit requires the expertise of an injury law firm. At the Bethune Law Firm, our experienced Georgia auto accident lawyers have the experience and knowledge to help victims get the maximum compensation. Contact us today to learn more.
