Car Accidents is Troup County Are at a Recent High

In 2021, the number of traffic accidents in Troup County reached a recent high. With 3,341 crashes, the number of accidents even exceeded pre-pandemic levels. That year, traffic accident fatalities in the county also sharply increased by 35% from the prior year. Nearly half the fatal accidents involved speeding or alcohol. 

The legal principle in a car accident claim is the same one used in every personal injury; the other party has a legal obligation to pay you in full for your damages if they were to blame. If they have insurance coverage (as required by Georgia law), the insurance company must step into the driver’s shoes.

How to Win a Car Accident Claim

In order to receive financial compensation for a car accident, you must show that the other driver was negligent. The insurance company will not just write a check based on your word. They will demand proof that demonstrates their driver was to blame for the crash. Although you do not need to prove your case beyond a reasonable doubt, you do need to show that your version of the facts was more likely than not to have occurred.

You have a limited amount of time to gather the evidence that you need to prove your case. If you wait too long, you may lose the evidence entirely. Thus, you need to call a car accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident. They could use the following to prove your case:

  • Witness testimony from objective third parties who saw what happened
  • The police report from the accident (which can be a part of the claim but not introduced into evidence in court)
  • Pictures of the scene of the accident
  • Traffic camera or dashcam footage
  • Testimony from an accident reconstruction expert

Troup County Car Accident Damages

Once you are able to prove that the driver was responsible, it is time to talk about money. Unfortunately, your lawyer may need to be prepared to do much more than talk. The other driver must pay you the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement

The insurance company has the legal obligation to pay you up to the policy maximum when you can prove your damages. They will do everything that they can to resist. They will drag things out as long as they can, trying to either wear you down or catch you unaware of the full value of your claim. 

How a Car Accident Lawyer Helps You

Your lawyer is here to protect and advocate for you during this process. If the insurance company is allowed to do what they do unchecked, it will cost you money. That is exactly what you need to hire a lawyer.

An experienced car accident lawyer will do the following for you:

  • Investigate your car accident and gather evidence
  • Calculate the value of your claim
  • Prepare the claim (or lawsuit) and file it
  • Negotiate a settlement with the insurance company, pressuring them to raise their offer
  • Argue your case in court if necessary

The legal process can be drawn out and complex. It is the last thing that you have the capacity to deal with when you are injured. The good news is that you do not have to go through it on your own. If you try to handle your own claim to save money, you will end up costing yourself far more than what you would save on a lawyer.
