Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do after an accident? 

Call the police or appropriate authorities to have an incident report created. Take photos and obtain witness information. Most importantly, seek medical attention. This is important even if you think you have only minor injuries. You should never admit fault, sign documents from the insurance company or give any statement without first consulting an attorney. Our knowledgeable staff is here to help you navigate every step of the legal process. 

DO I STILL HAVE A CASE IF I DID NOT SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION?

After an accident, the rush of adrenaline can often mask injuries. It is common for an individual to notice pain or other symptoms hours or even days after the accident. In this instance, you should seek medical attention as soon as you are aware of symptoms. Our friendly staff can advise you of your treatment options. 

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE MY CLAIM?

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is 2 years from the date of incident. Failing to file a claim in a timely manner can negatively impact your case. Our staff is attentive to detail, and monitors the time line of each case closely.
