For answers to questions about your specific accident, we offer a free case evaluation and consultation.

What are some of the common causes of car accidents?

Car accidents can result from various factors, each presenting unique challenges when determining liability. Understanding these common causes is crucial in building a robust case. Common causes of motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless behavior
  • Impaired driving or driving under the influence
  • Adverse and dangerous weather conditions

Our car accident attorneys have extensive experience investigating the root causes of accidents. Our personal injury lawyers will meticulously examine details and gather evidence to establish who was at fault. Whenever necessary, they will also call on expert witnesses to strengthen your case.

What kinds of damages can I recover in a car accident claim?

When you find yourself in the aftermath of a car accident, the repercussions extend far beyond physical injuries. At Adams Law Firm, we recognize the extensive impact on your life and strive to secure compensation for a comprehensive range of damages. Eligible damages include:

  • Medical expenses: Reimbursement for medical expenses can cover current and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and necessary medical equipment.
  • Property damage: Compensation for property damage can include repairing or replacing your vehicle and any personal belongings that were damaged in the accident.
  • Lost wages: Reimbursement for lost income includes lost wages due to injuries sustained in the accident and potential future earnings.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation is possible for the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident, encompassing mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life.

We aim to comprehensively assess the accident’s impact on your life and diligently pursue every avenue to secure the compensation you deserve. Our dedicated legal team will diligently prepare your case to help you obtain reimbursement for any and all eligible damages.

What is the filing deadline or statute of limitations for a car accident claim in Georgia?

Time sensitivity is paramount when filing a car accident claim in Georgia. The statute of limitations establishes a crucial deadline for initiating legal action, and failing to meet this deadline can jeopardize your ability to seek compensation. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for car accident claims is typically two years from the accident date.

Timely action is critically important. We strongly advise our clients to initiate the legal process immediately. Our legal team has extensive expertise in navigating the complexities of filing within the statute of limitations deadlines, ensuring that your case is presented within the required time frame. Your prompt action is vital to protecting your rights and securing the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Even with minor injuries from a car accident, it may be valuable to consult with an experienced attorney who understands the complexities of car accident claims. With any injuries, you deserve to receive fair compensation and not fall victim to the insurance companies.

Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side significantly increases your chances of getting the maximum amount of compensation for your case. If you choose to contact a lawyer, it’s essential to select a firm you are comfortable with that treats you with the dignity and respect you deserve.

How You Can Stay Safe Behind The Wheel

Each year, driver fatigue, distraction or impairments, and road and weather conditions are among the top causes of car accidents. Remember that crashes occur more often late at night, on weekends, during rush hour, and during peak holiday travel times.

Stay as safe as possible. Follow these tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

  • NEVER drive distracted: Keep your cellphone out of reach and avoid the temptation of sending a quick text or checking your email.
  • NEVER drive aggressively: Avoid tailgating and excessive speeding. Obey traffic signals and keep your emotions in check if you encounter an aggressive driver.
  • NEVER drive drowsy: If you’re sleepy, pull off the road at a safe place and stay parked until you are alert or arrange an alternate form of transportation.
  • NEVER drive under the influence: Drugs and alcohol generally account for around one-third of car accident deaths each year in the United States. Arrange a designated driver or figure out another way home before you drink.
