What should I do if I get in a car accident in Georgia?

If you're in a car accident in Georgia, notify law enforcement and seek the required medical help right away. The police can help you fairly assess the accident scene and will draw up a report that will serve as important evidence if you hire a Georgia car accident lawyer and seek compensation down the line. Exchanging insurance and driver's license information and collecting photo evidence are also standard practices in the event of an accident.

Is Georgia a no-fault state for car accidents?

Georgia is an at-fault state, which means that the party responsible for the accident, or their insurance, pays for all damages suffered by the car accident victim, including medical bills, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering. Our car accident lawyers in Georgia will strive to help you obtain all the damages entitled to you.

Is it possible for me to file a lawsuit for a loved one's wrongful death in a fatal car accident?

Under Georgia law, the right to seek compensation after an accident does not disappear if the car accident victim passes away. Rather, the option to file a claim is transferred to their estate or family members. According to state law, the spouse or child(ren) of a victim can pursue a wrongful death claim and seek compensation after a fatal accident. If a parent has lost a child who was unmarried and childless, they may also have the right to file a claim.

Is it possible to get compensation in Georgia even if you caused the auto accident?

If you're found to be at fault in any capacity, it's probable that you won't be able to obtain any financial compensation through a claim. However, as per Georgia law, if you were found to be less than 50% responsible for the accident, you can still seek to recover a portion of the overall damages.

What is the average settlement for a car accident in Georgia?

Settlement amounts are often kept private, so a state-wide average is unfortunately unavailable. However, while roughly 75% of personal injury claims settle for less than $30,000, some settlements can reach the millions of dollars. The Insurance Information Institute has also reported that the average claim for bodily injury in 2020 was $20,235, and for property damage was $4,711 (source).

Your specific case will depend on the severity of the car accident injuries, among other factors. We know it can feel impossible to put a number on what you're going through. A Georgia-focused Mighty Law car accident attorney can help you look at your specific auto accident and personal injury case and know what it's worth.

Is hiring a car accident lawyer in Georgia necessary?

After a car accident, a thousand thoughts race through your mind. Should I hire a lawyer? probably isn't one of them. That being said, while it isn't mandatory that you hire a personal injury attorney following a car accident, an experienced support system be helpful—especially if you have questions about who was at fault or what exactly happened. In complicated cases, hiring a lawyer can help uncover key details and ensure you receive fair treatment.

How long will it take to investigate a car accident claim in Georgia?

The statute of limitations for car accidents in Georgia is 2 years, which means you'll need to file your car accident lawsuit within that time period if you wish to pursue financial compensation.

Who pays for medical bills in a car accident in Georgia?

You typically won't be able to get the defendant's insurance company to pay for medical bills until your case settles. So what do you do in the meantime? You have a few options including:

  • Using your health insurance or Medicare, if available.
  • Treating with a medical provider who will accept "liens" as payment. A lien allows the medical provider to be paid out of the settlement. If you don't settle your personal injury case, the lien is usually not enforced against you personally.

Regardless of the situation, it's important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible following an accident.
