Because trucking accidents often cause severe and catastrophic damage, you may not have the physical or mental strength to pursue your claim alone. You could also use the help and advice of a professional. An attorney is more equipped to investigate the accident, determine liability, collect the necessary evidence, and calculate your damages. They can handle your claim from start to finish while you recover.
- File your claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company
Georgia is an at-fault state. Therefore, whoever is at fault for the accident is liable for the victim’s injuries and damages. Your attorney will file your claim with the liable party’s insurance company, including all supporting documents and stating your desired settlement amount. The insurance company’s insurer will investigate the accident, determine liability, and either accept or deny your claim. They may also make a counteroffer.
- Go to court
If your insurance claim was denied or unsatisfactory, or you wish to sue the liable party directly, you can file a personal injury complaint. Your lawyer will handle this process for you and advise you on the best course of action.
