FAQ: What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured in an Auto Accident? 

Depending on the severity of the auto accident, a driver may be facing substantial injury or loss of function. Recovering from the injuries, coping with any financial liabilities, and adjusting your daily activities afterward can be very difficult, but there is help. A qualified Marietta auto accident lawyer can mitigate some of these issues, handling the legal process and working to make sure you receive every dollar of compensation owed to you.

If you’ve been in a car accident, our lawyers advise that you:

  1. 1
    Get a medical examination: The first thing you should do is get a medical examination. This will let you know exactly what physical injuries you may be dealing with, and how your life may be impacted by the incident. Keep track of all medical details, fees, and obligations your doctors may require.
  2. 2
    Collect Evidence: If your case goes to court, you’re going to need as much evidence as possible to help back your case. Take as many photos and collect as much physical evidence of the accident as you can, so you’re prepared.  Remember, we can help with this process with our team of investigators, so call us early.
  3. 3
    Find appropriate legal representation: Before you do anything else, you will need to contact an auto accident attorney that is equipped to handle the ensuing legal process. They will be your most trusted resource as you navigate the legal proceedings that are to come.
  4. 4
    File a claim with your lawyer: If you have been injured in a car accident, you need to take prompt action to protect your legal rights. Keep in mind that the state of Georgia places a time limit on filing a claim in civil court after an auto accident, so it’s important that you and your car accident lawyer move quickly.

What Happens After a Car Accident in Marietta, Georgia?

If you get into a car accident, expect these events to occur:

  • Police will follow their department’s standard law enforcement protocols, including documenting the events that led to the auto accident. They will attempt to determine who was at fault. A police report is usually filled out at the location of the accident.
  • Your personal injury lawyer will review the accident report. Your attorney may then decide to hire an independent expert to perform an analysis of all relevant facts of the auto accident.
  • The expert will then examine the crash site as well as the remaining pieces of all vehicles involved in the accident. The expert will then present a professional assessment of what occurred in the accident and a conclusion on the cause.
  • Your attorney will prepare a compensation claim for you, based upon the findings in the independent expert’s accident analysis.

I had a major accident, so I needed an attorney that could handle a big case. My sister and I looked on the internet, and we chose Morrison & Hughes because they had such a good reputation. It was the right choice and I'm so glad that I didn't choose a TV lawyer! The lawyers at MH are friendly and easy to talk to. They understood how to handle my case from the beginning, even though it had a lot of complicated issues. I'm going to be recovering from my injuries for a long time, so I needed a lawyer who could go the distance
