If another driver’s negligence led to physical, property, and financial damages, we can help you seek financial compensation after a Macon car accident. Neck and back injuries can lead to long-term physical discomfort and disability. You do not have to simultaneously cope with medical treatment and pursue an at-fault driver or deal with their insurance company on your own.
While your health care team treats your injuries, our legal team can build your compensation case. A Macon neck and back injury lawyer on our car accident team can help you navigate Georgia’s legal system, prove the at-fault driver’s negligence, and fight for the financial compensation you may be entitled to.
Your Right to Compensation Has a Time Limit
The recovery period for neck and back injuries can be lengthy. While you focus on your recovery, we can prepare and file your case. This is an important step because, according to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, the personal injury statute of limitations is typically two years.
The clock starts running on the day the accident occurs, and if it runs out, you might not be able to file your lawsuit. That could mean you have no legal recourse left to compel the at-fault driver to compensate you.
When you get our team involved in your case early, we can:
- Comply with the statute of limitations
- Work to locate and record witness testimony
- Investigate the accident scene for evidence
We can also seek video footage from the area that supports your version of the events leading up to the accident and establishes your right to seek financial compensation.
We Can Help You Interpret the Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations after a car accident can be difficult to determine on your own. Depending on the specific circumstances of your accident, the timeline might toll—or temporarily pause—for a variety of reasons. Our team will explain any factors that alter the timeline and ensure the filing deadline is met.

Strong Evidence Supports Your Macon Case
Building a strong case file requires time and great attention to detail. A neck and back injury lawyer from our team can help you pull together the documents and evidence that make up an effective case file. When we go to work for you, we compile these items, organize them, and present them to the at-fault party or their insurer.
Our goal in building your evidence file is to help drive settlement negotiations and to ensure you can seek a favorable financial settlement.
Your medical records will tell the at-fault party’s insurance representative and us how your injuries occurred and the treatments they require. The prognosis report it includes will also help us calculate the cost of care you will require after your case has been settled. It will help us ensure you receive compensation for both current and future medical care.
Your medical records and bills will also:
- Help us prove the cost of any assistive medical devices you require
- Reflect the costs for in-home assistance, required medications, and short-term or long-term physical therapy you may require to treat chronic injuries
Mayo Clinic notes that back problems are a major reason why people miss work. We can work to seek a fair recovery for you.
Car Accident Report
Your car accident report is one of the most important tools in your case file. It will give us contact details for the at-fault driver, their insurer, and anyone who witnessed the accident. It may also contain police-generated photos of the accident scene and of each vehicle.
Obtain copies of your car accident report as soon as they become available. Keep one for your evidence file and bring one to us. We will use it to prove the cause of the accident and to establish the neglect that led to it.
Witness statements are an important part of your car accident case file. In addition to providing an objective account of the accident, they also provide a view of the collision from a different vantage point.
If more than one person saw the accident take place, your case file will contain testimonials of what occurred from more than one angle, which can prove valuable to your case.
Photo and Video Footage
Because so many people carry smartphones, witnesses and bystanders might have captured footage of the accident or of its immediate aftermath.
In addition to smartphone footage, we can also seek video surveillance footage from the local area. We might also find traffic cameras that caught footage supporting your version of the events that led to the accident.
Do Not Worry About the Cost of Hiring a Lawyer
We want you to focus on recovering from your injuries, not on how you will pay for our assistance. This is why we handle cases with no upfront fees. In addition, we recover no attorney’s fees unless and until you recover compensation. There is no risk when you work with our team.
