Fighting For Maximum Auto Accident Compensation In Macon

Your insurance company will likely reach out to you following the crash, letting you know that they are merely gathering information about the horrific event. It is important to know that, despite their claims, insurers are not on your side. Their goal is to secure an immediate settlement that ends up minimizing the money you should receive for your car accident injuries.

From the initial consultation to the final outcome – whether through mediation or litigation – our attorney Peter Meyer believes in the highest level of legal advocacy when you need it the most. When necessary, we will call upon legal experts to help us get to the facts of the collision and try to maximize your compensation.

Car Accident Law FAQ

Unless you have been in a serious auto wreck before, you probably know very little about the process of getting compensation from the insurance company. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we hear from our clients.

What should I do after a car accident in Georgia?

Your first move should be to get out of the road if possible. Check yourself and your passengers for injuries and call 911. If you are well enough, exchange contact and insurance information with the other drivers involved. Use your cellphone or a disposable camera to take pictures of the crash scene. If there were any third-party witnesses, ask for their contact information. Unless you need emergency medical care, remain at the scene until the police arrive. Finally, contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Should I see a doctor after the crash?

Yes, even if you seem unhurt. Sometimes, serious accident-related injuries like whiplash are not immediately apparent. Even if you do not need to go to the hospital right away, schedule an exam with your primary care doctor as soon as you can. The sooner you start getting treatment for hidden injuries, the better your chances for recovery.

Why should I speak with my attorney before the insurance company?

Auto insurance companies that do business in Georgia like to advertise themselves as caring and concerned when a customer gets seriously hurt. In reality, the insurance industry is driven by profits, not helping people in trouble after a car accident. Unfortunately, the insurance adjuster handling your claim is not your friend. Their job is to find a way to deny your claim or offer you a settlement that is far less than you deserve. In part, they count on your lack of knowledge over what your claim is actually worth to pressure you into accepting a lowball offer or a dubious denial.

Your personal injury lawyer can advise you of your rights and speak to the insurance company on your behalf, giving you the best chance of a smooth, efficient and fair process.
