Pursue Compensation to Get Back On Your Feet

- Emergency transportation
- Medication and medical equipment
- Doctor’s visits
- Lab work and other diagnostic tests
- In-home assistance
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages
- Scarring and disability
- Reduced quality of life
If you lost your loved one in a red light accident, you can recover damages for their:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial costs
- Your loss of companionship/consortium
- Your own pain and suffering
A Peachtree Corners red light accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can evaluate your damages to ensure that you are fairly compensated.
Comparative Negligence Laws Might Affect Your Damages
Under OCGA §51-12-33, Georgia follows a comparative negligence doctrine. In other words, the damages you claim could be reduced based on the role you played in the accident. For example, if the court determines that you were 20% to blame for the accident if you didn’t use your turn signal, you would receive 80% of the damages you would have received initially.

A Lawyer from Our Firm Can Take Over Your Case On Your Behalf
While you focus on healing from your injuries and spending time with your loved ones, your lawyer can take charge and handle all the tasks that come with your case. The ways they can help are below.
Dealing With the Insurance Companies
The other party’s insurance company might try to reach out to you and get your side of the story. It is best to direct all communication with them to your lawyer, as they can twist your words and ultimately attempt to pin the blame on you.
Your lawyer and the insurance company will also negotiate a settlement for you. At first, the insurance company might offer you a low amount, but you can count on one of our lawyers to fight for fair compensation. If neither party can agree on a settlement, your lawyer can fight for you in court.
Filing All Paperwork In a Timely Fashion
Time is of the essence when filing a personal injury case. According to OCGA §9-3-33, claimants generally have two years to file their lawsuit. Failure to comply with this deadline can mean that you are ineligible to collect any compensation.
Of course, there are exceptions to the rules, so consult your lawyer to help you figure out how much time you have. Given sufficient notice, they can help you submit your lawsuit and other related paperwork before the deadline.
Your testimony is valuable and essential for building your case. However, it may not be everything you need to convince the other party’s insurance company and legal team (or a jury) that the driver was at fault.
Forms evidence you can include in your case are as follows:
- Photos of injuries
- Photos of your vehicle and the accident scene
- Video footage of the accident
- Eyewitness accounts
- Accident reconstruction analyst testimony
- Your medical team’s diagnosis
- Car accident report
Evidence is not limited to what is listed above. If you have any other proof that demonstrates the severity of your injuries or that it was the other driver’s fault, tell your lawyer right away.
Act as Your Advocate
Remember that your lawyer is working for you, so always feel free to ask them questions about your case, address your concerns, and check in for updates on the status of your case.
How Negligence May Have Caused Your Accident
Part of investigating your case is figuring out what the other driver was doing when they ran the red light. Some possibilities are:
- Driving impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while fatigued
- Speeding and other reckless driving behavior
- Failing to consider road conditions
Linking one or more of these behaviors to the cause of your accident can boost the validity of your claim for compensation.
