If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident caused by a teen driver, you could be entitled to seek financial compensation from the at-fault driver if their negligence was the cause of the accident.
Our teen driver accident lawyers serving Macon can help you get the monetary recovery you deserve. We can help you prove the four legally required elements of negligence, which include dory of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. We can also explain more about Georgia’s statute of limitations and personal injury laws, especially in terms of how they may affect your case.
You Could Be Entitled to Seek these Recoverable Damages
According to OCGA §51-1-6, you have the right to seek damages after someone else’s negligence causes your injuries. After an accident with a teen, you may be able to seek compensation through the teen or even through their parents’ insurance coverage, per OCGA §51-2-2.
In either case, you may qualify to seek recovery of both economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Income loss
- Medical costs
- Damage or destruction of your vehicle
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
While you concentrate on your physical recovery, a teen driver accident lawyer serving Macon will help you build a solid case file. We will gather proof of the at-fault driver’s fault and liability. We will also establish the value of your injuries and related expenses and help steer the settlement negotiation process.

Avoid Delaying Your Compensation Case
You have a limited amount of time to file your car accident lawsuit. The personal injury statute of limitations in Macon is generally two years, according to OCGA §9-3-33. A different timeline might apply if someone you love was fatally injured in the accident.
Failing to comply with either statute of limitations could result in:
- An inability to file your lawsuit at all
- The immediate dismissal of your lawsuit
- The inability to compel compensation

Additional Benefits of Involving Our Team Sooner Rather Than Later
The sooner our team gets to work on your lawsuit, the more time we have to locate and interview witnesses while their memories are fresh. We can also investigate the accident scene, search for smartphone photos and videos, and canvass the area for beneficial residential and commercial surveillance video footage.
How We Will Investigate Your Accident
After your car accident, our team will request a copy of the official car accident report. We can glean important information and details from the report that help substantiate your right to compensation.
The car accident report can tell us:
- The at-fault driver’s information
- Insurance company information
- Each vehicle’s condition
- Degree of apparent injuries
- Accident causes and contributing factors
The car accident report can also tell us if the at-fault driver was ticketed, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the collision. It will contain notes and diagrams from the investigating officer and may also contain police-generated photos.
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can scour the police report for proof of the other driver’s negligence in order to build a compelling case for you.
Your Medical Records and Bills
The injuries you sustained in the accident can require treatment from a number of physicians and facilities.
We may consider the following records:
- Emergency room visits
- Laboratory testing
- Specialist visits
- Receipts for medical devices
You do not have to request, compile, and organize these documents, bills, and records on your own. While you recover from your injuries, we can get to work building your evidence file. We will also present proof of the extent and cost of your injuries and related expenses to the at-fault driver’s insurance representatives.
