Car accidents happen every day in nearly every city in the United States., including Georgia. Yearly injuries from accidents reach the millions and the societal cost for accidents extends to the hundreds of billions. That is nearly $900 dollars for every person in the United States. Needless to say, those who work in the insurance industry have extensive experience dealing with lawsuits stemming from an auto accident.
A Georgia woman is in critical condition after being involved in a car accident along highway 84. The crash happened when a tractor-trailer lost a tire. The woman, who was driving westbound in a Chevy Malibu, swerved to miss the tire. In doing so, she entered the eastbound lane hitting an oncoming Mercedes. She and the driver of the Mercedes suffers non-life threatening injuries. The passenger in the Mercedes is in critical condition, while all others involved are considered to be in stable condition. Police are still investigating the cause of the accident and no charges have been filed in the case.
Because insurance companies represent their members many cases resolutions must involve them. In a day and age where insurance companies have teams of attorneys representing their best interest, it is important that those seeking to go against an insurance company have more than adequate representation.
My firm has extensive experience handling accident cases and often times are able to settle without going to trial. After years of working for insurance companies I have insight into their inner working and how they approach cases.
