Here are some of the main things a car accident lawyer does when working with an injured driver.
Helps You Understand Your Rights
Most people are not well-versed in personal injury laws regarding car accidents. So, when an accident does happen, it’s completely understandable if you don’t know what your full rights are.
If you were not at fault for the car accident, you should not have to pay for damages resulting from it. The laws around car accident injuries vary per state, but in Georgia, the at-fault party in any injury accident is liable for all damages—and the injured party can seek compensation for their damages, per OCGA §51-1-6.
Your lawyer can go through all relevant laws with you in your case. They’ll help you understand what your rights are and how you can legally protect yourself. Insurance companies are skilled at making you think you have little choice in how your case goes—but you have more power than you probably realize.
