Our Georgia personal injury attorneys know there is much confusion after incidents with injuries occur. Whether a vehicle collision or a negligent security occurrence, the physical, emotional, and financial damages associated with your unique incident can quickly become overwhelming.
Medical expenses, long-term care needs, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and compensation for personal pain and suffering are just some of the damages injury victims may be eligible to pursue during a personal injury claim.
Here, we discuss the steps to pursue the best outcome for each client’s needs.
Pursuing a Successful Georgia Personal Injury Claim Starts with You
If you have been injured by another person’s negligent actions or inaction, seek medical care immediately. This will allow you to understand the extent of your injuries and the type of treatment plan you must follow to get your physical and emotional well-being back on track.
You must follow your doctor’s ongoing treatment plan to the letter, attending all follow-up appointments with your primary care physician and any specialists you have been referred to for care.
Your medical records will support that you were injured directly due to the incident and suffered financial damages.
If you stop attending medical appointments or refuse to follow the treatment plan, you will give the insurance company a reason to object to your claim by stating you are not as hurt as you said — otherwise, you would still be pursuing the proper treatment. Do not give the insurance representative a reason to undervalue or deny your claim. They have plenty of tactics to do so on their own.
Take the Next Step and Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Law Firm in Georgia
While seeking medical treatment, contact a Georgia personal injury attorney to discuss your legal rights and options to file a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Not only will this allow you to make informed decisions about the direction of your claim, but it will protect your best interests in the future. Our skilled personal injury lawyers can help you investigate how the injury occurred and communicate the extent of your injuries without jeopardizing your claim by letting the insurance company make the first move.
We will also help you collect and preserve the evidence supporting your claim, including a police report, photographs and videos taken at the scene, eyewitness statements, and anything else that helps prove the other party is liable for your injuries and subsequent damages.
We will also help you gather your medical bills, employment records, property repair receipts, and anything else that proves the extent of your damages before we outline your overall compensation recovery needs.
Filing a Personal Injury Insurance Claim
Once our personal injury attorneys outline all the details, we will file a claim with the appropriate insurance company by presenting the evidence regarding fault and damages in a demand letter.
A demand letter is a document to the at-fault person’s insurance company specifying how much you want for your damages. This is when the negotiations begin.
As we continue negotiations to pursue the best outcome for your claim, we will keep you posted every step of the way so you always know where your case stands.
Although the vast majority of all personal injury cases are settled during the negotiation stage, we will be ready to file a lawsuit on your behalf if the insurance company refuses an acceptable settlement offer. At Ashby Thelen Lowry, we remain trial-ready, so the insurance companies know we are always willing to go the distance to obtain the outcome our clients deserve.
