When another driver hits your car from the side, it creates a dangerous situation in which you may have suffered long-lasting injuries. If the crash was not your fault, you have the right to seek damages from the negligent driver.
A Mableton side-impact collisions lawyer at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will not back down when unfair insurers try to take advantage of car accident victims. We stand up for your rights. Our only goal is to help you receive the settlement you deserve.
How Much Are Car Accident Cases Worth?
No attorney can guarantee you will win a certain amount of money in a settlement after a car accident with injuries. Each case is a little different, and even small differences can greatly affect the final outcome.
Some cases will be worth several thousand dollars, while others may result in a seven-figure settlement amount. It depends on the facts in the case, on the level of your injuries, and your ability to enjoy life or go back to work in the future.
At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, we have won six- and seven-figure settlements for multiple clients in the past. Our clients know that we always focus our attention on winning the highest possible award for them.
We Do Not Charge Fees Upfront
We know that when you have suffered injuries in a dangerous T-bone crash that was not your fault, you could be facing steep medical bills at the same time that you do not have income.
We do not want to add to your financial concerns when we begin working for you, so we do not charge any money to secure our services to start on your case. Instead, our fees come from a percentage of the final settlement.
According to OCGA §9-3-33, victims have up to two years to start the process of filing a personal injury case. We recommend contacting us as soon as possible, though, to help us perform a successful investigation of the crash.

Determining the Categories for Which You Can Receive Awards
After another driver hits you from the side and causes injuries, you can receive reimbursement for many different items. Our team of Mableton side-impact collisions lawyers will work to get you the greatest possible award amount for each of the following categories.
Reimbursement for Medical Bills
Because side-impact collisions often occur in an intersection, both vehicles may be traveling at normal speeds. This creates quite a bit of force on the occupants in the vehicles, almost certainly increasing the severity of the injuries you will suffer.
After the crash, you may need to travel to the hospital in an ambulance for emergency care. You also may need surgeries and a long hospital stay to overcome your injuries and to remain on the road to recovery.
You should not have to pay these medical costs on your own, especially when another driver caused the crash and your injuries. We will fight to help you win reimbursement for your medical costs to date, as well as for an estimate of the medical costs you will have in the future.
Reimbursement for Missing Income
If you are unable to work after the accident because of your injuries, we can make the wages you lost part of the settlement amount.
Should you be unable to work at the same job in the future because of lingering problems from your injuries, we will put together an estimate of the money you would have earned if the accident never happened, requesting this amount from the insurer.
Award for Emotional Trauma
A sometimes significant part of a settlement after a side-impact car accident is an award for pain, suffering, and emotional trauma. This category may include damages for:
- Ongoing pain
- Onset of depression
- Fear of riding in a car
- Changes in personality or mood
All of these items can lead to a reduced quality of life for you after the accident.

You Do Not Have to Accept the Insurance Company’s First Offer
After suffering injuries in a car accident where another driver was at fault, you may hear from the other driver’s insurance company within a couple of weeks. The insurer may claim to be on your side, working to help you receive the best possible settlement.
However, this rarely is the case. The ultimate loyalty for the insurer lies with the insurance company. When an insurance company is trying to maximize its profits, convincing accident victims to accept a smaller settlement than they deserve helps the company’s bottom line.
We Will Help You Determine a Fair Offer Amount
We would not recommend that you accept an offer too quickly. You need to be certain that the doctor has diagnosed all of your injuries. If you agree to a settlement now, and the doctor finds new injuries later, you cannot go back and request more money.
We Will Help You Figure Out the Best Way Forward
Our team provides the best possible advice to all of our clients, relying on the successes we have had in the past. Each case is slightly different, though, and we tailor our techniques and advice to match your particular needs.
Understand that even though we provide advice to move the case toward the best possible resolution for you, the final decisions about how we move forward always rests with you.
