HOW MUCH IS MY CAR ACCIDENT CASE WORTH?

Murphy Law Firm represents people just like you who have been injured or have lost loved ones in a Douglasville 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

SHOULD I 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 Douglasville car 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.

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.

SHOULD I ACCEPT THE AUTO INSURANCE COMPANY'S SETTLEMENT OFFER?

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.

How Might an Accident Attorney Improve My Car Accident Case?

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.

SHOULD I GET TREATMENT FOR MY INJURY?

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.
