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

Have you been offered a settlement by the insurance company?
