Car accidents may be common, but that does not mean they don’t cause serious injuries. Many times, a car crash can cause injuries that prevent you from working, involve long recovery periods, and even result in life-long disabilities.

Fill out the form below for a car accident case consultation.

If you are involved in an auto accident:  

  • Call 911.  Make sure you get a copy of the full accident report when it is available.  
  • Take pictures of the scene.  If it is safe, try to take pictures from multiple angles.  
  • Take pictures of any visible injuries such as cuts and bruises.  
  • Get medical treatment.  Your case can become difficult if your injuries are not properly documented.  
  • Call Brooks Law Office.  The steps that you take now can determine how the amount of compensation you get later.    

Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company?

Legally, you are not required to speak with the other person’s insurance company. Talking to the other driver’s insurance company can damage your case.  A recorded statement can be used against you later on. If you have an attorney, they can discuss your case on your behalf.  

On the other hand, you must speak with your own insurance agent. When speaking to your agent, only provide the name, address, and phone number of any other parties involved in a collision, the insurance information of any parties involved, the law enforcement agency at the scene, and the date and time of the incident.

Who is responsible for paying for my medical treatment?

The at fault driver’s insurance company may pay for some or all of your medical treatment, but it will be included in the negotiated settlement at the end of your case.  While your case is moving through the legal process, we encourage you to use your personal health insurance so that your medical treatment is not interrupted.    

If you do not have health insurance, we can work with some doctors to treat you on a lien basis, meaning you won’t have to pay them back for your medical treatment until your case settles.  

The Georgia law allows you to collect for:

  • Car repairs
  • Medical bills 
  • Future medical bills  
  • Time off from work 
  • Pain and suffering 

Evidence must be preserved before it disappears.  Witnesses can move, documents can be destroyed, and photos can be erased.

Highly recommended to all my military folks.  I am a military member and I have a high-end car that was involved in an accident, and I went to Brooks Law Firm.  The insurance company offered me only $785 for the repairs. The total repairs cost $12,000. Everything was taken care of in less than 4 months.

Do not assume the insurance company is looking out for your best interest.  They are in the business of making money, not giving it away. They can make you a low-ball offer or deny your claim all together.  Contact us to get a free evaluation of your case.
