Were you Hit by a Car in Atlanta ?
After a car accident, you may be wondering if you need a lawyer. The other party may attempt to stike a deal to avoid the insurance companies getting involved, calling the police and avoid hospital by “working something out”. Avoid this at ALL COSTS!
First: Call the police. A documented report will be the proof you need for insurance purposes and if you need to file a claim at a later date. Even if a handshake deal seems like a good idea at the time the other party might disappear, be uninsured or even change their story so you could end up with a case against you.
The other driver is also unlikely to pay for any medical expenses that may occur as a result of your claim. Sometimes injuries may take hours to days to surface.
Your second call should be to your lawyer. A lawyer will help negotiate with the insurance companies who more often than not, will offer obscenely small minimum settlements which in many cases will not cover the damages or potential medical issues you may have after a car accident.
