Who is at fault in a car accident in Peachtree Corners?
Georgia is what’s known as an “at fault state” for car accidents. State law says that whichever driver caused a car accident is the one who should pay for it. That means that insurance companies have to go through a complicated process of determining who is considered at fault for the accident.
In some cases the answer is obvious. For example, if your accident was caused by a drunk driver, a distracted driver or simply someone who was driving in a reckless manner, that person will almost certainly be considered at fault.
In other cases it’s less clear. Generally, what we look for in every case is negligence. Negligence is a legal term that simply means one driver could have acted more responsibly to prevent the accident, and they didn’t. They may not be a bad person, or even have broken any laws, but if they had been more careful then no one would have been hurt.
This is why it’s so important not to believe that your injuries were “just an accident.” Accidents do happen, but they can usually be prevented. If the other driver’s negligence contributed to the accident, then they are at fault and you can recover money.
What can I recover money for after a car accident in Peachtree Corners?
Under the law, in the City of Peachtree Corners you can recover up to 100% of your costs if the accident wasn’t your fault. That means that accident victims can move on with zero costs and zero debt from the accident.
Some of the costs we’ve helped our clients recover include:
- Medical bills
- Prescription medication
- Physical therapy and other forms of rehabilitation
- All lost wages or lost work time related to the accident
- Car repair costs
In some cases you may be awarded significantly more. If you were badly injured, suffered a disability, or endured severe physical pain because of your accident, you could be entitled to a large financial award in addition to the costs above. This money cannot undo the losses you’ve suffered, but it can help you and your family put your lives back together and remain financially stable after your accident.
How do I know if I have a strong car accident claim?
The best way is to get a professional legal opinion. Each car accident case is unique, but a lawyer who has experience on hundreds of cases can talk to you about your accident and give you a clear answer.
In general, if the accident was not your fault then you have a case. We have successfully won financial recoveries in many kinds of cases:
- Head on crashes
- Rear end crashes
- Accidents involving fog or rain
- Accidents with distracted drivers
- Drunk driving accidents
- Tire failures
- Whiplash/neck injuries
- Hit and run accidents
- Uninsured motorists
Do I have to go to court for my Peachtree Corners car accident case?
Not in most cases. It only happens when the insurance company refuses to bargain. In that case, we will explain why and give you our opinion on whether it’s worth going to the local courts. If you choose to do so, we will handle the entire process for you.
Usually, however, car accident claims can be settled without a trial. At John Foy & Associates we have been given the nickname “the Strong Arm law firm.” We earned this name because we hammer the insurance companies at the bargaining table and push them to make a better offer. In many cases this is all it takes to get you the money you need.
What will it cost to hire a Peachtree Corners car accident lawyer?
We don’t think you should have to pay for your lawyer out of pocket.
Of course, there are law firms that charge expensive hourly rates, and collect that money whether they win or lose your case. But we don’t think that’s in your best interest. Instead, we believe that every car accident victim deserves an experienced lawyer, without a big bill. That’s why we offer a very different payment arrangement:
- Every consultation with us is FREE
- You pay us nothing up front or out of pocket, ever
- If we don’t win you money, we don’t get paid
If we do win a successful financial recovery for you then we get our payment as a percentage of that money. You keep everything else.
