The first goal of an attorney in these situations will be to try and resolve the insurance issue directly with the insurance carrier involved. As mentioned above, this will include conducting an extensive investigation in order to recover all evidence needed to adequately show the insurance carrier what happened. An attorney will help the claimant submit a demand letter along with the evidence proving liability. At no point during this process will an individual have to deal with the insurance carrier on their own. An attorney will handle all communication on their behalf, including any negotiations that take place.
If it becomes necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit against the insurance carrier and the at-fault party for the claim, an attorney will handle this as well. They will make sure that the claim is filed on time in the civil court system in Georgia.
Individuals who sustain injuries caused by the careless or negligent actions of others should be able to recover compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, property damage expenses, and pain and suffering losses.
