The blunt force trauma the body sustains during a car accident can lead to severe contusions and lacerations. If your Decatur collision resulted in cuts and bruises, a personal injury attorney from our firm can help you pursue financial compensation from the at-fault driver.
Our firm aims to provide accessible legal representation, so our consultations are always free and we charge no upfront fees to our clients. We only get paid when we win for you.
We Can Help You Seek to Recover Accident-Related Expenses
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of severe blunt-force trauma injuries. Contusions (bruises) and lacerations (cuts) are two common injuries caused by blunt impact. Some bruises and cuts are minor, but severe bruising can cause pain, swelling, and a reduced range of motion. Lacerations may require stitches and cause scarring. If not properly treated, there is also a risk of infection.
You could be entitled to compensation for your accident if someone else was responsible, and:
- You have medical bills related to your cuts and bruises.
- You cannot work because of your injuries.
- You have suffered scarring or disfigurement.
Our attorneys can help you seek awards for emergency medical care, medical procedures, medications, lost wages, property damages, and pain and suffering.
How Much Is Your Car Accident Case Worth?
Every accident case is different. How much compensation you can win will depend on:
- The severity of your injuries
- The cost of your past and future medical treatment
- How long you have been out of work
- The extent of your pain and suffering
You can help our team calculate your damages by keeping track of your medical bills, vehicle repair bills, missed wages, and any other out-of-pocket expenses related to your crash.
Our lawyers will work to get you as much compensation as possible in your case. We have won multimillion-dollar awards for injury victims from across Georgia. At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, we will fight to make sure your bills are covered and that you receive a fair amount of compensation for your pain and suffering.

Our Attorneys Can Help You Prove Another Party Caused Your Injuries
Drivers who behave carelessly, violate the law, or otherwise disobey the rules of the road should be held responsible for accidents they cause. We can help you prove a negligent driver caused your injuries.
Examples of negligent driving include:
- Making improper turns
- Weaving in and out of traffic or into the wrong lane
- Traveling in the wrong direction
- Speeding or driving too fast for weather conditions
- Failing to obey traffic lights and signs
- Failing to yield
- Drinking and driving
- Driving while drowsy or asleep behind the wheel
- Driving distracted or texting and driving
We will use witness testimony, expert opinions, photographs and videos, accident reports, and crash site information to show that another party owes you financial compensation. If poor road maintenance or a vehicle defect, such as faulty brakes, caused your crash, we will get to the bottom of it. Our firm will work to prove negligence and pursue compensation from all liable parties.

What to Do if an Insurer Contacts You
If you hear from an insurance agent, be polite but firm. Do not let them pressure you into accepting their first settlement offer. Do not discuss your injuries or speculate about the cause of your crash and who is at fault.
You do not want to say or do anything that the insurance company could use to blame the accident on you or reduce or deny your settlement. Tell the insurance company that all future communication should go through your lawyer.
We Can Seek Awards at Trial, if Necessary
We will work hard to resolve your case without a civil lawsuit. However, if the insurance company will not offer you a favorable settlement or they deny your claim, we are not afraid to take your case to court. Seth Bader and Luis Scott are proud members of the National Trial Lawyers Association and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.
According to the statute of limitations imposed by OCGA §9-3-33, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia. You should begin the process of seeking compensation as soon as possible following your accident. Insurance claims can take time to work through; you want to make sure your attorney has enough time to commence legal action if you cannot settle your case outside of court.
