Georgia Car Accident Attorney
According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are $1.55 billion in financial losses in Georgia every year as a result of motor vehicle accident deaths. These losses include $17 million in medical costs and $1.53 billion in lost productivity. Millions more are also lost in auto accidents that aren’t fatal but that result in serious injury.
For car accident victims and for those who lose a loved one in a car crash, these costs are not abstract and all too real. Those who are involved in a car wreck also experience non-economic losses due to pain and suffering and the emotional toll of the accident.
Georgia law allows victims and those who lose loved ones to take legal action. A Georgia car accident attorney at Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. can help. Our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience representing victims of car wrecks and we have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for those hurt in automobile accidents.
OUR GEORGIA CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS FIGHT FOR COMPENSATION
When you are involved in a car wreck, the key question to resolve is who is at fault for the accident. A driver who is at fault is held legally liable for all damage and must compensate victims or the surviving family members of those who are killed. The compensation may include payment of:
- Medical bills and costs
- Lost income/wages
- Money for pain and suffering and/or emotional distress
- Wrongful death damages, including compensation for loss of companionship and to make up for the money that the deceased will not earn
The amount of compensation you are owed can total in the hundreds-of-thousands or millions of dollars, so there is a lot at stake in making a car accident claim. The Georgia car accident lawyers at Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. have the legal knowledge and skills to help build your case and recover the maximum in compensation.
To make a successful claim for compensation after a car wreck, you need to prove:
- The other driver broke a driving rule (like drunk driving or going over the speed limit) or the other driver was unreasonably careless
- The other driver’s carelessness or violation of the safety rule was a direct cause of the car wreck
- You suffered injuries as a result of the car wreck
Accident reports from the scene, eyewitness testimony and other evidence are required to prove fault. Things can also become very complicated when there is more than one potential party who may be at fault for the crash. A Georgia auto accident attorney will help with every step of making a case, from gathering initial evidence to deciding whether to settle, to negotiating a settlement, or going to court.
