How Do Your Big Rig Accident Lawyers Help Me?
Our big rig accident attorneys can help you in many ways:
- Help you compile and organize all of the evidence you need to file a strong claim.
- Represent you during negotiations or in court.
- Prevent the insurance company and other third parties from getting you to settle for less.
- Answering all of your legal questions and providing sound legal advice.
- Handle all of your communications with the defense, the insurance company, and other third parties.
- Filing your claim at the right time after calculating your damages and finishing your medical treatment.
You can file a claim and negotiate for a settlement on your own, but doing this will pretty much ensure that the insurance companies will get their way. You will most likely end up with a settlement that doesn’t truly reflect the amount you need to cover for your damages.
Insurance companies have large amounts of legal resources at their disposal to challenge your claim. They can also afford to stall you out during negotiations to force you to settle for less. To avoid this, you need to retain a lawyer that can help you even the playing field.
Will Retaining a Lawyer Cost a Lot of Money?
The amount of money it costs to hire a lawyer depends on various factors:
- The legal fees associated with filing your case.
- How long it takes for your case to resolve.
- How much work was necessary to prove negligence and win your settlement.
Our lawyers usually charge a percentage of your settlement. Many insurance companies use that to scare big rig accident victims away from obtaining legal representation. They claim that most lawyers are only out to take large chunks out of your settlement and to waste your time.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth with the lawyers here at John Foy & Associates. We only charge you what is necessary and will never take any of our fees upfront. We only accept payment after we win your compensation. If we can’t do that, you don’t have to pay us a single penny for our services.
We Can Recover Compensation for Various Damages
It doesn’t matter what kind of damages you’ve sustained:
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Lost wages
- Vehicle repairs and property damages
- Medical expenses
If your damages were from your big rig accident, our lawyers will ensure that they all get accounted for in your settlement. We will use your receipts, invoices, bills, and various formulas to determine how much you are entitled to in compensation.
How Much Time Do I Have to File My Claim?
The statute of limitations for big rig accident claims is two years from the date of your accident according to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33. Don’t squander the time that you have. Building a strong case for your claim takes a considerable amount of time, and you should take advantage of the two years that you have to do so.
It’s natural to be confused on where to even begin. The law doesn’t make it easy for the average person to file a claim correctly. That’s where our lawyers step in to help you file your claim at the right time.
