We are passionate about helping victims who’ve been injured in a car accident. Not every lawyer is experienced in handling car accident cases. You need an attorney who knows how to deal with the insurance companies and get you the compensation you’re entitled to.
Accidents involving vehicles come in all types: cars, tractor-trailers, buses, motorcycles, and pedestrians. Although modern safety standards have made vehicles safer than ever, advances in technology such as smart phones, music- and DVD-playing devices, and portable computers have greatly increased distracted driving.
The results of motor vehicle crashes can be devastating. In Georgia alone, over a thousand people are killed in traffic accidents and more than 100,000 are injured every year. If you are the unfortunate victim of someone else’s negligent driving, you need an experienced car accident attorney on your side.
Be sure to call Morrison & Hughes’ law offices in Marietta, GA to speak with one of our car accident attorneys as soon after your accident as possible. Critical evidence can be lost as time goes on. Photographs of the accident scene, eye witness statements, and the vehicles themselves can all provide valuable evidence to support your case. The sooner your attorney can begin investigating your car accident, the stronger your case will be.
Achieving a successful outcome in your case will require proving liability—that is, who was at fault—and damages. Your attorney will use the accident report, witness statements, applicable laws and legal precedents, and other information to prove the accident was not your fault. If there are any issues relating to liability, insurance companies are very good at exploiting these. Having an experienced car accident lawyer is vital to the success of your case.
Proving damages—that is, the losses you have suffered due to the car accident—is more than just a matter of gathering your doctor and hospital bills. The law allows you to be compensated for your lost income from time off work due to your injuries; for property damage, such as repairs for your car; for your pain and suffering, mental anguish and emotional distress; and other losses.
A skilled car accident attorney knows what information is needed to build the strongest case for you.
