How Soon Should I Contact a Lawyer After My Accident?
If your accident left you with a whiplash injury, the first thing you should do is seek medical treatment as soon as possible. The longer you delay getting medical treatment, the harder it will be to recover later on. Forget about the settlement briefly and prioritize first your physical and mental well-being.
After receiving medical treatment, you should then follow up with a lawyer, and quickly. The more time passes, the harder it becomes to gather evidence for your claim. You don’t have a lot of time to file a claim in Georgia, so time is of the essence.
The Statute of Limitations for Whiplash Injuries
In Georgia, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim for your whiplash injury, according to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) § 9-3-33. There are no exceptions to the statute of limitations. Once it passes, you won’t be able to file a claim anymore.
This is precisely why you should always prioritize retaining a lawyer right after seeking medical treatment. The faster you build a strong case, the better chances you will have when entering into negotiations with the insurance company.
Our Lawyers Will Help You Fight Back Against the Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. They will always scrutinize your claim and deny any responsibility for your damages. You shouldn’t be under the impression that insurance companies are generous because they simply are not.
The only goal for an insurance company is to protect its bottom line. Their interests lie in saving their own money and assets, even if it’s at your expense. Strong legal representation is required to help you even the odds against their vast resources and solid legal defense to stop this from happening.
While we can’t stop you from pursuing your settlement alone, we strongly advise that you at least contact us for a free consultation first. There is no risk or obligation involved. We want to see you get the best settlement possible. It is wise to receive the assistance of a strong law firm to back you at negotiations or trial.
