How can I tell if my East Point accident claim is valid?
If you were hurt through no fault of your own, you have a valid claim. But many injured people blame themselves or think that their injury just happened for no reason. That’s not how the law works in Georgia. Under Georgia law, most injuries occur when someone was “negligent.” That doesn’t mean anyone hurt you on purpose; it just means that someone didn’t live up to their lawful obligation to be careful. Negligence is the cause of most car accidents in East Point. When someone is negligent in an East Point accident, they (or their insurance company) must pay for your expenses from an injury.
We work on many types of Atlanta personal injury claims, but the most common ones include:
- Slip or trip and fall accidents
- Auto accidents
- Accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists
- Dangerous medical devices
- Work Injuries
- Harmful prescription drugs
- Defective products
Most injuries can lead to a valid personal injury claim in Atlanta.
Will I have to sue someone after an accident in East Point?
No, Not usually. Lawsuits are generally filed if the insurance company won’t negotiate a fair offer. This could happen if the insurance company thinks it can weaken your statement on the witness stand, or if it is too confident in it’s evidence. If this happens in your case, we will explain the situation and tell you how strong we believe your claim is. It is then up to you whether you want to file suit in the local courts. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we will support you and fight for you all the way through.
More often, we are able to settle with the insurance company. At Murphy Law Firm, we are known for our proactive approach to insurance companies. This is because we start your case by doing our own thorough investigation. We look into injuries and how they occurred, gathering concrete evidence. We then present this evidence to the insurance company, demonstrating how seriously you were injured and who is at fault. In many instances, this alone leads to substantial financial recovery.
