What is my Accident Case Worth?

Murphy Law Firm represents people just like you who have been injured or have lost loved ones in a Georgia car accident.

We understand the importance of getting you compensation to help rebuild your life and the lives of your family. You deserve the best quality of life possible. A car accident victim may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Injuries
  • Missed Work
  • Medical Bills
  • Pain and Suffering

Why Not Trust The Insurance Company?

Georgia is a fault state. That means if the accident isn’t your fault, the other driver’s insurance is typically responsible for paying you compensation. BEWARE though, because their main goal is to pay you as little as possible. They often use tricks like having you give a recorded statement, have you sign a bunch of documents, and try to get you to settle your case right away. DO NOT FALL FOR THESE TRICKS. 

Unless you are an experienced accident lawyer, it will be hard to know what things to say, not say, sign and not sign. Murphy Law Firm can help protect you through this process and fight the insurance company to get you the compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions About Georgia Auto Accidents

Information About High Accident Areas in Georgia:

Anywhere in the United States, highways are a place where fatal accidents can be caused due to excessive vehicle speeds, intoxicated or distracted driving, and heavy traffic conditions. In Georgia, Interstate 20 is the scene of many major crashes that take away lives every year.

What Should I Do About My Expenses?

Though it may not be what a family wants to do right away, by contacting an attorney immediately, you will get help in preserving important evidence, taking photos of the accident scene, interviewing witnesses, and referring to medical experts. Much evidence can be lost, even after a short period of time, and a wrongful death claim may take years to settle. Some families do not realize until too late that the monetary expenses that come with losing a family member can create a financial nightmare. The victim’s spouse, children, and parents can bring a wrongful death lawsuit to help cover those expenses. Many families unknowingly forgo their compensation because they wait too long to contact a Georgia wrongful death attorney.

What Should I Do to Move Forward With My Claim?

In a wrongful death claim, the person who caused the death of another person is held liable. If you are unsure of the extent to which you can file a legal claim for expenses, then you will want to schedule a free consultation with a wrongful death attorney in Georgia. Fatal Accident Attorney James Murphy and Murphy Law Firm will carefully assess your claim and answer any questions you may have. We will also provide legal guidance, and can help determine the best strategy for moving forward with your case. Call Murphy Law Firm to help you with the steps you need to take to ensure your rights are protected. We will gladly consult with you for FREE! 770-577-3020

When people visit theme parks, they expect to have a good time. Theme parks have an interest in keeping their visitors safe and happy, so they will keep coming back. Unfortunately, serious accidents can occur at and around theme parks — including Six Flags Over Georgia.

If you or a family member were seriously injured or killed at a Six Flags theme park, you may have a Six Flags injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Most of the time, these accidents occur due to slips, trips, or falls within the park. However, serious accidents on rides at Six Flags have also caused severe injury, permanent disability, and even death.

Common theme park injuries may include:

  • Slip, trip, or fall injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations, cuts, scrapes, or serious bruises
  • Twisted ankle
  • Sprains, strains, etc.
  • Joint injuries (ankle, wrist, knee, etc.)
  • Head injury
  • Back injury
  • Amputated limbs, fingers
  • And more

For a theme park to be financially liable for an injury or death, they must be proven to have neglected to do something to keep you safe. Maybe the employees failed to inspect, maintain, or operate a roller coaster properly. Perhaps they failed to fix a known safety hazard. There are many ways a theme park could be found responsible for your accident.

Georgia residents who commonly travel in and around the Atlanta area understand that Interstate 285 can be a dangerous road to travel upon. I-285 is often the site of car, motorcycle, and tractor-trailer accidents. The interstate can be dangerous because:

  • traffic travels at high speeds
  • there is often congestion of the roadways due to the heavy flow of traffic
  • drivers merge lanes without using the proper signal lights.

How Much Does a Georgia Attorney Cost?

At Murphy Law Firm, we believe that finances shouldn’t hold anyone back from getting proper legal representation. That is why our consultations are free, and you pay nothing unless we get you money. You only pay if we win. If we don’t get you financial recovery, we don’t get paid.

Is There a Deadline for Filing a Car Accident Case?

Yes. Personal injury cases have various deadlines called the Statute of Limitations (SOL). The SOL depends on the type of case and who is involved. In some cases you may have two years to file your claim, but in others, you may have only weeks. The best thing you can do is speak to a lawyer immediately.

Do I Have to Go to Court for My Auto Accident?

In many cases, the answer is no. Our law firm gathers the facts, builds the evidence for your injury case, and demands a settlement with what we deem is a fair offer. There are times the insurance company rejects the offer, and depending on how strong your case is, we may advise pursuing the matter in the local courts. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make.

What Should I DO If I'm Injured in a Car Accident?

If you have suffered an injury in an accident, even if it seems minor, you should treat it right away. That means you should see a doctor as soon as possible as it could possibly be more serious than you think. 

Getting treatment also ensures that you are documenting your injuries, which is important later on when seeking compensation.

Two Important Things to Do If You are Injured:

This may sound odd, especially if you need money to help you pay for some of the medical costs you now have. However, insurance companies do this right away, when you don’t have any idea what your injuries will cost or how long your recovery will take.  They do this because they want to resolve your claim cheaply and make a profit for themselves.  If you accept this money, you’ll probably sign away your right to recover more later—even if you find out your care will cost much, much more than you originally thought.  Always talk to a lawyer before you sign any insurance company paperwork, take money, or make a formal statement to the insurance company.

A lawyer can make the difference between accepting a settlement that won’t even pay your emergency room bills and getting a full financial recovery for your injuries.  And the sooner you see a lawyer, the better.  A lawyer can give you a realistic assessment of the strength of your case.  A lawyer can also refer you to qualified doctors who can tell you what your injuries are and how long they will take to heal.  And a lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf—freeing you to focus on your recovery.  Some people recover tens of thousands of dollars more just because they talked to a lawyer.
