Suwanee Car Accident Lawyer

Free Consultation

An upside-down hatchback on a highway after a dangerous accident flipped it over.An Atlanta suburb, Suwanee encourages alternate methods of transportation with a number of trails and a bike share program. However, car accidents are still an unfortunate reality in the city and surrounding areas.

When a negligent driver causes a collision, you could suffer painful injuries, expensive medical bills, missed time at work, and other difficulties, but the insurance company may look for any reason to deny or reduce your claim. How can you ensure your damages are addressed?

A Suwanee Car Accident Attorney Will Work for You

At the end of the day, the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and will make saving the company money their priority. However, an experienced car accident lawyer works for you and will prioritize securing the largest settlement possible so you can move on with your life.

If you or a loved one have been hurt in a car accident, you may not be sure if you need a lawyer or if you even have a case—but don’t let that stop you from seeking legal advice. The CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm is available to provide a free consultation so you can learn more about your options.

We’ll review the details of your accident, answer your questions, and explain your options for seeking damages. There is no obligation, and if we do take your case, you won’t owe us anything until we win or settle it.

What if You Didn’t See a Doctor About Your Injuries After a Car Accident?

Although this is a common situation, it can complicate your claim. Often, clients tell us that they felt fine after the accident or assumed their injuries were very minor.

Over the next few days or weeks, they began experiencing new symptoms, or one of their “minor” injuries grew worse. They eventually sought help from a medical professional, but then the insurance company rejected their claim, believing it was unrelated to the accident.

Delayed symptoms are not unusual after a car accident. Often, the trauma of the accident and the accompanying adrenaline release suppress pain signals and distract the injured person from any discomfort they have.

Additionally, some people have concerns about the cost of healthcare and may prefer to avoid it if they believe the problem will heal on its own.

Unfortunately, all the insurance adjuster sees is a claim several days or even weeks after the car accident, which they take to mean the person is either faking their injury or that the car crash didn’t cause it. The client then receives a claim denial or sometimes a request for additional documentation.

In some cases, we may be able to appeal a denial by gathering evidence related to your injury. We may use your medical records, expert testimony from healthcare providers, and more to show that your injuries were caused by the accident and should be covered.

However, it’s best to seek medical treatment as soon as you can after the collision. Tell your doctor about the accident and when your symptoms started so they can evaluate you for any car crash-related injuries.

What Else Should You Do After a Car Accident?

Here are some other important ways you can act to protect your rights after a car collision:

Pay Attention to What the Doctor Ordered

Be sure to follow your doctor’s directions and complete any treatment recommended. If you ignore their recommendations or don’t complete treatment, the insurance company may also use that as an excuse to dismiss your claims.

They could say that you can’t be badly hurt if you don’t take your doctor’s advice. If you have unpleasant side effects or can’t continue the prescribed steps for some other reason, don’t just abandon the treatment—talk to your doctor right away so they can prescribe an alternative medication or therapy.

Document All Your Expenses

Copays, out-of-pocket costs like mobility aids or physical therapy equipment, travel expenses like gas if you have to travel to see a specialist—these common expenses all add up. We can seek to recover your costs from the insurance company if we have the receipts.

Take Pictures at the Accident Scene

Ideally, you’ll want images of the damage to your car from all angles, the other vehicle, the road (especially any tire marks or debris), and the surrounding area.

But don’t post these pictures on social media! Insurance adjusters love to look up claimants’ social profiles and search for anything they can use against you.

The last thing you need is for one of your friends to make an innocent joke about how you’re “Still speeding” because you once got a speeding ticket in high school twenty years ago. Or, your description of the accident may be slightly different from what you said in the police report, and the insurance adjuster might suspect you lied.

The best way to avoid these misunderstandings is to say nothing about the collision online.

Talk to a Lawyer As Soon As Possible

Many valuable pieces of evidence in a car accident case can be lost or destroyed over time. When you contact an attorney, we’ll go to work gathering evidence to build your case right away. In some cases, acting quickly allows us to secure video of the accident, additional witness testimony, more photos from the accident scene, or other evidence.

Don’t Sign Anything Until You Talk to an Attorney

Sometimes, the insurance company makes an offer that sounds ideal, but it may not be. An initial offer from the insurer—especially one that arrives quickly after your accident—could be a lowball offer that doesn’t begin to cover all your damages.

First, you need to know what your damages are and how much they’re worth. This can be more difficult to calculate than you might imagine.

Your lawyer will carefully review each category of damages, asking about your injuries, related costs, and the impact on your life. We’ll make sure nothing is overlooked, determine a value for each category, and then add these values up to learn your claim’s approximate worth.

Next, it’s essential to understand why the insurance company’s offer may not match up with this figure. There are several potential problems we might see with a first offer:

  • The adjuster failed to account for all your damages. If you submit some medical bills and car repair estimates, they may offer you the exact amount of those bills. But you could have many damages, including future medical costs, pain and suffering, permanent disability, lost income, and more. When the adjuster ignores these or assumes you only have the damages listed on your documents, you could lose a significant amount of compensation
  • The adjuster underestimated the value of some damages. With exact invoices, they will usually have the correct amount. But some damages are less concrete. Pain and suffering, for example, are often calculated using a formula, but this formula requires the adjuster to assign a value between 1.5 and 5 based on the severity of your injuries. In some situations, we may find the adjuster has chosen too low of a value based on the impact of your injuries. If you need long-term care, we may also scrutinize any value assigned to future medical costs, which could also be too low.
  • The adjuster subtracted your percentage of fault from the total they estimated for your damages. Georgia allows shared fault in accident or injury cases, which means both you and the other driver may have contributed to the collision. Being partially at fault isn’t always the dealbreaker some clients fear it is—you can still collect damages from the other party if you are less than 50 percent responsible. However, your share of fault can be deducted from your final settlement. The concern is ensuring the insurance adjuster assigns an accurate percentage of fault and doesn’t exaggerate your contributions. Another issue is that the adjuster might assign fault to the client in a situation where they did not contribute to the crash at all.

Be Honest and Cooperative With Your Attorney

If you made a mistake or suspect you caused the accident, you shouldn’t speculate about fault at the scene—but you should tell your lawyer. The more we know about what happened, the better we will be able to help you.

As discussed in the previous section, the fact that you made a mistake doesn’t necessarily preclude you from recovering damages from the other driver. Even if you were primarily at fault, we may be able to find different solutions, such as seeking compensation from your own car insurance company (depending on your coverage).

Sometimes, people come to us because they engaged the services of another attorney who seems to have forgotten about them. Lawyers can get busy, but in most situations, your attorney should return calls or emails within a few days.

If you’ve left multiple messages and no one from your lawyer’s office has bothered to call you back, it may be time to consider another attorney.

However, communication is a two-way street. If your lawyer is trying to get in touch with you, return the call as soon as possible. Most likely, we are seeking additional information or documentation that will help with your case.

The sooner you can answer our questions or locate the necessary paperwork, the sooner we can get your case settled.

If you have trouble finding something we need or don’t know the answer to a question, simply let us know. Our team is skilled in helping people find documents or other needed items, and we may be able to advise you on how to proceed.

For instance, if you realize you’ve misplaced a medical bill or invoice, most medical providers will be able to make you a copy.

What if the Police Report Says You Are at Fault?

A police report contains information about the accident—where it happened, who was involved, their insurance and contact info, statements from the drivers and any other witnesses, etc. Additionally, there is a section where the responding officer writes their opinion of how the crash occurred and who was at fault.

Space is included so the officer can draw a diagram of the collision.

Besides interviewing the drivers and other witnesses, the responding officer will observe evidence at the scene, such as tire marks on the road, damage to the vehicles, road conditions, and more. Based on all this evidence, they will make an educated guess about what happened and who was at fault.

Often, their opinion is accurate, but in some cases, there is very little evidence, and the drivers may have conflicting statements about what occurred. A lack of witnesses could complicate matters even more.

When these situations happen, even the most diligent officer may not always determine fault correctly.

Fortunately, we can challenge a police report if we find substantial evidence to show a different sequence of events. If the police report indicates you are at fault, but you don’t believe this is accurate, please contact us right away so we can investigate further.

Our team will analyze the report, study any available evidence, and work to find more evidence if needed.
