How our Georgia auto accident attorneys can protect your rights
If you’ve never been in a serious car crash before, you may not realize that you shouldn’t trust people from auto insurance companies — even if it’s your own insurer. Insurance companies stay in business by paying less in claims than they collected in premiums. An expensive claim for car accident injuries like traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, chronic pain and more threatens that business model. In order to minimize their payouts, some insurers respond to expensive injuries by looking for any reason they can to deny your claim.
This process can be very difficult for auto accident victims who may already be grieving a loss in the family, navigating life with a disability, out of work or in serious chronic pain. With so many distractions, you may not be thinking about your legal rights.
But rest assured that you do have rights.
Scholle Law can help you protect them. We are committed to guiding accident victims through the entire process, explaining how to avoid common mistakes and maximizing their financial recoveries.
What damages (compensation) can you recover after an auto accident?
Unfortunately, even the safest drivers in the world are only as safe as the choices of the drivers around them. If you’ve been injured by someone else’s mistakes, you have a right to claim compensation for:
- Your property damage
- Your medical costs (including any future medical costs)
- Lost wages (both now and in the future) if you cannot work because of your injuries
- A permanent disability
- Chronic pain and suffering
- The wrongful death of a loved one
Common causes of car accidents in Jackson County, GA
According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tens of thousands of Americans are involved in car crashes each year, and those crashes are a leading cause of death among American adults. According to a National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey, most auto accidents are caused by human factors, although vehicle and roadway conditions can also cause crashes.
The report identified the most common causes of vehicle crashes as follows:
- Breaking traffic laws
- Misjudging of another driver’s behavior
- Sleeping behind the wheel
- Bad weather
- Obstructed or missing traffic signals
- Poor roadway design or maintenance
Common car accident injuries
Unfortunately, almost everyone who drives a car regularly will at some point in their life be involved in a car accident. It can happen anywhere, even in the most rural corners of Jackson County, Georgia. When this happens, you should call car accident lawyer Charles Scholle so that you have an experienced attorney fighting for your legal rights. Luckily, most small collisions don’t result in severe injuries. But a serious car accident can present a whole range of problems for the people involved.
Drivers must be responsible when on the road, both to themselves and those around them, each time they get behind the wheel. Impatience and distraction while driving lead to more preventable deaths than any other type of accident.
Additionally, many severe medical injuries that result from auto accidents are also accompanied by long-term financial and emotional burdens that require a period of recovery for both the victim of the accident and their family. Long-term physical injuries sustained in a car accident might not be immediately apparent. In many cases, what seems like a minor personal injury at first can evolve into permanent back or neck pain, herniated disks, ruptured spinal disks or traumatic brain injuries.
