Who is at fault in a car accident in Locust Grove?
Georgia is considered a “fault” state for car accidents. That means that the driver who caused the accident is responsible, and they or their insurance pay the costs of all parties. But determining who is at fault is not always clear-cut.
In some cases, one person is obviously at fault. For example, if you were hit by a drunk driver, a distracted driver, or someone who clearly broke the rules of the road, they will almost certainly be found at fault for the accident. In other cases, however, the insurance companies will have to adjudicate who is at fault, or they may disagree. Many insurance companies will even try to blame you—even if you did nothing reckless or irresponsible.
We urge any car accident victim to be your own best advocate and, above all, not to blame yourself. It’s easy to feel that you could have prevented your accident somehow, but if you were driving in a responsible manner, that may not be the case. We have often spoken to car accident victims who assumed they had no claim at all, only to find out their claim is worth $10,000 or much more.
What kind of costs can I recover after a car accident in Locust Grove?
In the City of Locust Grove, the rule is that up to 100% of all your costs related to the accident can be covered. That means that if you were injured through no fault of your own, you should be able to emerge without a single penny of costs or debt.
Some of the specific “damages” or costs we can help you recover include:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy or rehabilitation
- Lost work time/lost wages related to the accident
- Car repairs or replacing your car
If you have suffered a serious, life-changing injury, or lost a loved one in a car accident, you may be entitled to a substantially larger financial award. We do not believe that any amount of money, no matter how great, can ever make up for these tragic losses. But this money can help you and your loved ones remain stable financially in the aftermath of your loss.
How do I know if I have a strong case?
The best way to know is to ask for a professional opinion from a lawyer. Don’t doubt yourself or second guess your claim—that is exactly what the insurance company wants you to do. You may be surprised by how much their attitude changes once you have a lawyer speaking on your behalf.
While every case is unique, we’ve successfully won financial recoveries in many types of cases:
- Head on accidents
- Rear end accidents
- Accidents involving rain, fog, or dangerous road conditions
- Hit by a distracted driver
- Hit by a drunk driver
- Tire failure
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Hit and run accidents
- Uninsured motorists
When you contact us, we will send out our investigative team to gather evidence, take photos and collect statements about the accident. We can then paint a clear picture of exactly what happened, with documentation for every detail. In many cases this is all it takes to get the insurance company to offer you a much higher amount.
Do I have to go to court for a Locust Grove car accident claim?
Not usually. In some cases the insurance company will refuse to negotiate. If that happens, we will advise you on whether we believe it’s worth fighting your case all the way to the local courts. We will only recommend this if we think you have a high chance of winning, and we will handle everything for you along the way.
In most cases, however, you never need to step into the courtroom. John Foy & Associates has earned a reputation as the “Strong Arm” law firm of Georgia. When we take the insurance company to the bargaining table, we go with a strong case and we push them to offer you the full amount you deserve—without a legal battle. In many cases we can win you a large financial settlement without a trial.
How much does it cost to hire a Locust Grove car accident lawyer?
We believe that hiring a lawyer should cost you nothing out of pocket.
We know there are law firms that charge up front fees or high hourly rates. That means they get paid whether they win or lose your case. We don’t think this arrangement is in your best interests, which is why we offer a different payment structure:
- All consultations are FREE
- You pay NO out of pocket costs—ever
- We only get paid if we win you money
If we secure a financial recovery for you, we will take our fee as a percentage and you keep the rest. That way you have no risk.
