If you were involved in a car accident that caused internal body injuries, you could face lengthy recovery times. One of our lawyers serving Macon can help you recover from the financial aftermath of the accident while you cope with your physical health. We can build an effective case file that establishes the at-fault driver’s negligence and helps you seek a favorable monetary settlement.
Your case can include various types and amounts of recoverable damages. On your own, it can be difficult to determine the legal parameters of your case. With help from an internal body injury lawyer on our team, we can assign an accurate monetary value to your potential compensation package and compile the documents that prove its worth.
We will Collect Evidence of Your Injuries and Losses
The medical care you require after a car accident can involve many different medical treatments from many different providers. With referrals, prescriptions, tests, and exams, the full range of medical records that support your compensation case can be difficult to gather.
When our team goes to work on your case, we help compile these items while you focus on your recovery. The medical evidence we amass helps establish the value of your health care expenses, which can include immediate and anticipated medical bills.
Our team also uses your written prognosis report to establish the cost of the care you will require in the future.
You are Entitled to Recover More Than Medical Care
Serious injuries sustained in a car accident can cause you to miss significant amounts of wages and income. A personal injury claim or lawsuit can help you recoup those costs in addition to your health care costs. According to OCGA §51-1-6, you can also recover the following monetary expenses that stem from your injuries:
- Wage and income loss
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress
- In-home assistance
Compiling and organizing the documents and evidence that support the value of your case can be a time-consuming undertaking, involving communication with many people and offices.
Our client support team can help you get your evidence in order and present it to the at-fault party and their insurance representative.
Fight to Recoup Your Expenses Right Away
Do not wait to start fighting for the financial compensation you deserve. If you wait too long, your right to file a lawsuit might expire because of the personal injury statute of limitations for a Macon car accident. This is generally two years, according to OCGA §9-3-33.
If the filing deadline expires, you might be left with no legal options that compel the at-fault driver to compensate you. It can be hard to cope with physical recovery and the mechanics of building an effective lawsuit on your own.
Our team of internal body injury lawyers can handle the insurance company and build your case while you focus on your physical and emotional health and well-being.
How We Build Your Personal Injury Case in Macon
The evidence file we prepare on your behalf tells representatives for each side what happened at the accident scene. When our team builds your personal injury case, we will typically:
- Locate and interview accident witnesses
- Complete and submit insurance claim forms
- Build a supportive evidence file on your behalf
- Start your case with an insurance claim, then file a lawsuit if negotiations don’t lead to a fair settlement
We also update you when we communicate with the liable insurance provider and as your case progresses. We take the hard work of building and presenting your case out of your hands, but we will not leave you in the dark.
Instead, we make sure you receive communicative legal support that gets results.
Include These Items in Your Case File
The evidence file we compile for you will include your medical records and bills, as they establish the severity and degree of your injuries and the cost of your current and future treatment plan. Your medical evidence may include your written prognosis to establish the cost of ongoing medical care.
We will also request your car accident report. The date of this report may help us establish the statute of limitations and demonstrate the causes and contributing factors of the collision.
Your case file may also contain:
- Employment records
- Photos of your injuries
- Accident scene photos
- Witness testimonials
We may also request and include your own written statement and other relevant documents in your case file.
We Can Talk to the Insurance Company on Your Behalf
The at-fault driver’s insurance company may offer you a speedy settlement to resolve your case. A speedy settlement might be problematic for several reasons. For instance:
- The true cost of the accident can take time to uncover.
- If you accept an early offer and sign a settlement agreement, you cannot request additional compensation later, even for valid expenses.
We recommend avoiding speaking to the insurance company about settlement offers or making statements about the accident that might later be construed as acceptance of fault. Instead, you can talk to our case evaluation team before speaking to anyone else.
We can help you assign an accurate value to your case and avoid inadvertently accepting an inadequate settlement amount.
