YOUR TRUSTED ATTORNEY IN GEORGIA WITH
THE COURAGE TO FIGHT FOR YOU
car accident ATTORNEY in Georgia that you can trust
If you have recently been involved in a car accident in Dalton or the surrounding areas we serve, you may be feeling concerned about bills, your damaged car, or medical care. If you are unsure of where to turn for legal guidance, please contact our office for a free consultation.
Our firm understands that this can be a difficult time for you and your loved ones, and we are here to help. With years of experience and a dedication to fighting for the rights of our clients, we have established ourselves as a trusted law firm that can help victims of car accidents.
In Georgia, the statute of limitations for civil cases such as car accidents, wrongful death and other personal injury claims is typically two years from the date of the injury or death. You must file a claim with the court by that date, or your case is forever void.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
The most common cause of car accidents is human error. Drivers who are reckless, distracted, fatigued, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs pose a significant risk on the roads. Additionally, inexperienced drivers who have not mastered their driving skills are more likely to be involved in accidents.
Another leading cause of car accidents is speeding. This reckless activity reduces time for a driver’s reaction, your ability to react defensively, and increases the severity of any collisions.
Poor weather conditions, such as rain, snow, or fog, regularly contribute to car accidents, as reduced visibility and slippery road surfaces lead to a higher probability of accidents happening.
We get Paid if we Recover
At our firm, we understand that the cost of hiring an auto accident attorney may be a concern to you. We want to reassure you that we offer a contingency fee structure so that you don’t have to pay any upfront fees when hiring our attorney at our firm.
A contingency fee is a percentage of your final settlement or court award, so if you don’t receive compensation, then you don’t owe us anything for our services. Our goal is always to get you the maximum compensation possible for your case while you focus on healing and getting back to living your life without financial stress. We get paid of course but much of our satisfaction comes from helping our clients.
Attorney Smith has said, “I enjoy helping people. My first job was as a personal injury attorney. I really fell in love with it because though the money is not bad, it’s really to help folks. I mean, you help “friends” that have been hurt badly, lost a limb, need permanent rehab, or lost their career. This is worthwhile.”
What Kind of Costs Can I Recover After a Car Accident?
When it comes to recovering costs after a car accident, it is important to understand what kind of financial damages and losses you may be able to seek compensation for. We will review with you the possibilities. Compensation is not always limited to things like your immediate emergency medical bills or your damaged car. Depending on the circumstances of your car accident, you may be eligible to recover related expenses such as rehabilitation care, future or ongoing surgeries for physical injury or disfigurement, lost wages, and even job retraining if you cannot return to the type of work you were once capable of doing. If applicable, you may also have a case for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium.
