Red Light Accidents Are a Common Occurrence
If you’ve suffered due to a red light accident, know that you aren’t alone. A recent study published in 2019 by the American Automobile Association (AAA) states the following facts:
- 28% of all crash deaths that occur at signalized intersections were due to a driver running a red light.
- Roughly 46% of people who die in these crashes are passengers in other vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.
It doesn’t matter if you were hit by a car running a red light as a driver or as a pedestrian. What happened to you wasn’t your fault, and you had the right of way. Don’t end up paying for the negligent behavior of another driver.
You Can Compensate Your Damages
You can be left with serious damages after your accident:
- Medical expenses
- Disability and disfigurement
- Substitute services and assisted living expenses
- Lost wages, loss of employment, and reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc.
The medical expenses after an accident alone can cost you thousands of dollars, even with insurance. Most Americans don’t even have enough saved up to cover moderate emergency expenses.
When something like a $10,000 medical bill suddenly comes into your life, it can throw your financial situation completely out of whack on top of the pain and anguish you’re feeling after an accident. We want you to focus on healing from your injuries by getting you a settlement that covers all of your damages properly.
Can’t I File a Claim By Myself? Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Insurance companies may try to persuade you not to use a lawyer. They will claim that lawyers will only try to steal your settlement money from you and will cost tons of money to retain. The truth is, we won’t ever charge you money upfront, and we will always fight on your behalf to get you the best settlement possible.
You see, what insurance companies don’t want you to know is that they’re not on your side either. Their goal is to try and get you to settle for less without any legal representation. They will try to exploit your lack of legal knowledge to make you believe your settlement is worth way less than it actually is.
While you can most certainly file a claim by yourself, we recommend that you get one of our lawyers to help you file and negotiate for a settlement instead. That way, you can protect yourself from the sneaky strategies insurance companies use against personal injury victims.
Lawyers are more like an investment towards fair compensation instead of an expense on you.
File Your Claim Before the Deadline
You don’t have much time to get started on building your case after your accident. Georgia code only gives you two years to file your claim before it expires. There’s nothing you can do once you pass the two-year mark.
Don’t delay in getting to work. We know it’s hard to get started preparing for your case, especially after sustaining injuries from an accident. Our red light accident lawyers can help lighten the load so you can prioritize your recovery.
