Do I need a lawyer?
You are not required to hire attorneys if you are in an accident in Georgia. However, doing so can greatly increase your chances of filing a successful claim. If the defendant has his or her own counsel, it is of the utmost importance that you retain an experienced lawyer. Additionally, the law can be complicated and a knowledgeable car wreck lawyer can explain the process to you in an easy-to-understand manner.
Can an attorney get me compensation?
An attorney can greatly improve your chances of receiving compensation by gathering evidence and helping you to file a claim. However, ultimately, whether you receive compensation depends on the extent of your injuries and whether you are able to prove that the defendant is liable.
My insurance company offered me a settlement, should I accept it?
Any time you are in an accident, never sign or settle anything without speaking to a lawyer. Insurance companies may offer you a low-ball settlement to resolve your case quickly and save money. An injury attorney can help your obtain a fair settlement.
How do I know if I have a strong case?
An experienced accident lawyer can give you an honest assessment of your case. At Kaine Law, LLC, we can review your case, investigate the circumstances and point out any strengths or weaknesses.
How soon after my accident should I seek legal aid?
