Benefits of Working With Our Experienced Sandy Springs Car Accident Attorneys
Representing yourself in a car accident claim can seem like a more straightforward way to handle things, but the reality is that it actually makes your life more complicated.
Insurers rely on inexperienced claimants in order to avoid paying out the full extent of benefits for their own policyholder’s mistakes. Worse, they aim to make their lives easier by encouraging claimants to make themselves ineligible for certain benefits — or for any claim at all — such as by asking them to make recorded statements or to release their full medical history, when neither is actually necessary.
Securing the representation of an experienced Sandy Springs car accident attorney means that you have someone on your side to keep you informed of your actual rights, all while fighting for the full extent of your own financial and legal interests. Their services are essential for maximizing your chances of recovering all damages you have suffered — reducing the risk that you could end up paying out of pocket for someone else’s negligence.
Working with the CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm means that you are able to use our knowledge, experience, and resources towards the following aims:
Investigating your accident, including its actual causes and who contributed to liability
Estimation of your damages in full, including a projection for any future losses, such as the costs of follow-up care, reductions in vehicle value, or long-term reductions in earnings
Handling your claim from start to finish, ensuring all paperwork is completed accurately and on time while reducing your own stress and efforts spent on such tasks
Seasoned and compassionate legal guidance, helping you understand all of your rights and legal options available at key stages in your injury case
Preparation for a lawsuit or possible jury trial, should an injury claim not be fruitful, or should more aggressive legal action be warranted for your case
Referrals to trustworthy service providers for medical care, physical rehabilitation, vehicle repair, and more — all of whom may be willing to defer up-front payment while your settlement is pending
From the moment you engage our firm, you can expect us to take all of the heavy lifting off your shoulders while leveraging our extensive experience working on cases like yours to help you seek to recover more, holding all responsible parties accountable for the damages they inflict.
Common Damages Sought in a Sandy Springs Car Accident Case
The types of damages sought in a car accident claim will vary according to the injuries suffered by all victims involved and the extent of liability that can be established upon other parties. In most cases, claimants will want to recover damages in one or more of the following categories:
A car accident is capable of inflicting serious harm. Even when injuries are moderate, the impact on the victim’s life is going to be severe.
These figures above account for all costs, including reductions in wages, but the bulk of most claims comes from the direct costs of medical treatment for all injuries.
Medical care costs are skyrocketing in Georgia and across the U.S., so any injury that constitutes a medical emergency will result in 4-5 digit bills. These bills rise significantly when the victim must be hospitalized, as well as when they require surgery, specialist care, special treatments, or extended stays in the intensive care unit (ICU).
A medical costs claim seeks to recover all of these costs, as well as the costs of any medications, durable medical devices, specialty provider care, and other incidental expenses — all of which add up quickly.
On top of seeking repayment for your past medical expenses, an injury claim should also seek benefits for projected future expenses. Common future medical costs of an injury include physical rehabilitation, long-term medications, follow-up appointments, outpatient procedures, and more.
Your attorney will help you calculate the full financial impact of your injury, which may involve consultations with medical diagnostics and billing experts. The goal is to ensure that you are able to afford all of the care you need — now and into the future — without having to pay out of pocket.
A lost wages claim seeks to recover all financial consequences upon the injury victim’s income.
Injured parties are likely to miss work for at least a few days, and they will have more absences as they attend their follow-up appointments. Additionally, some individuals may be unable to work for weeks or months — they may also require fewer hours on their schedule or a change in job duties in order to accommodate their medical condition as they heal.
At-fault parties are supposed to be legally and financially responsible for the full extent of such costs. That includes not just reductions in regular wage earnings but also any reductions in available paid time off, benefits, retirement perks, and any commissions, tips, bonuses, performance-based pay, and other income they would have likely earned based on their most recent months of earnings prior to the accident.
The nature of car accidents means that some expenses will be tough to categorize, but they will also stem directly from the consequences of an injury, damaged vehicle, and other incidental costs related to the collision.
Injury victims may find themselves paying out-of-pocket for over-the-counter medications, medical devices, and other reasonable accommodations that aid them in their recovery. They are also likely to incur indirect costs from their care appointments: parking at hospitals and clinics or transportation to them.
Pain and suffering directly impact the quality of life of an injury victim, and they should be able to claim monetary compensation from responsible parties for it. While physical pain and mental hardship don’t have an easy-to-calculate cost, they nevertheless take a toll on the victim’s quality of life.
This impact is especially strong when they are unable to enjoy activities they once did, or they miss out on key moments like loved ones’ birthday celebrations and marriages.
Injury victims can assert their right to claim compensation for their pain and suffering more easily by documenting it on a day-to-day basis. By keeping a “pain journal,” they can note how they felt when they woke up when they went to bed, and throughout the day.
They can also keep a running log of activities they weren’t able to participate in, tasks that were made difficult by their condition, and any strong thoughts or emotions they experience in connection to their injury.
Vehicle Repairs and Property Replacement
Car accidents affect one of a family’s most crucial assets: their vehicles. A car accident liability claim should recover the full costs of all needed repairs — or vehicle replacement if the insurer deems the vehicle a total loss.
Further, it should compensate victims for any reduction in their repaired vehicle’s value as a result of being in the accident.
Other common “special” damages can be claimed as a result of property lost in a wreck, including coverage for damaged devices and clothing, sports equipment damaged during the accident, and the costs of any vehicle accessories or modifications.
Funeral and Burial Expenses and Other Wrongful Death Damages
Wrongful death claims can include a “survival action” to recover all of the above damages, which were suffered by the injury victim as a result of the accident and prior to their death. These claims can also compensate family members for their own financial and emotional burdens inflicted by the accident.
For fatal vehicle accidents, an injury claim can provide coverage for any handling of the remains and any memorial services held in the victim’s honor. It can also compensate family members for their own loss of a loved one, including the emotional devastation they feel, the moments of bonding they will miss out on, and the absence of income the loved one would have brought the household throughout the remainder of their expected lifetime.
Steps to a Sandy Springs Car Accident Injury Claim
While every injury claim is different, there are common patterns to their timelines. Below, we have listed the common steps you can expect to take in the wake of a serious car accident.
The accident is reported to police. All injury claims require the accident to be documented through the proper processes. In best-case scenarios, a police respondent will be called to the accident scene to document it, take witness statements, and make initial determinations as to mistakes or illegal actions that contributed to the accident’s circumstances. If a police report wasn’t created at the scene, injury victims should file a Georgia crash report ASAP.
Initial scene evidence is gathered. If the injury victim or someone assisting them is able to, they should attempt to gather as much evidence from the initial scene of the wreck as possible. Try to capture the vehicles before they are moved if it is safe and possible to do so. In any event, also capture photos and video of the greater scene, any tell-tale signs of the accident like tire marks, close-up photos of the wreckage, and photos of injuries as they develop. Also, any eyewitnesses should be asked to provide their information for future contact.
A medical diagnosis is made. Accident victims should request for an ambulance to come to the scene if anyone might be seriously hurt. If EMTs recommend evacuating to a nearby hospital, the injury victims should heed their recommendation. Otherwise, injured parties should report to a hospital or clinic as soon as possible. A quick injury diagnosis close to the date of the accident is key to both financial and medical recovery.
An injury attorney is brought on to assist. Once someone knows (or strongly suspects) that they were injured in an accident, it is in their best legal and financial interests to begin working with an attorney. Insurance companies must be contacted, and an initial investigation of the accident’s cause will be conducted. Having an attorney simplifies these steps while ensuring you have your own representative helping discover and document exactly what happened.
Injury damages are estimated. Once the full prognosis for the injury victim is clear, an attorney can help them calculate the full past and future costs of their treatment. Then, they can add on all of the other above damages and use this information to file an injury claim against the liability insurer(s) representing the at-fault party (or parties).
A demand letter is sent, and negotiations begin. A demand letter signifies the formal creation of a claim for damages. The insurer can counter this demand with their own offer, and both parties can continue to negotiate until an acceptable settlement value is reached.
A lawsuit is filed if talks stall or case damages are high. Should an injury claim not result in a satisfactory settlement offer — or when an attorney recommends quick action to protect your legal rights and interests — a lawsuit will be filed. This lawsuit demands that the at-fault party provide restitution for appropriate damages. An out-of-court settlement can then be negotiated, or the case proceeds to a jury trial.

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea.

An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
