After being struck in a vehicle collision, Georgians have several options for pursuing financial recovery. The state uses a fault-based insurance system which means that crash victims can file a claim with their own insurance company or the carrier for the driver who caused the accident. They can also initiate a lawsuit against the faulty driver. Motorists in the state are required to carry a minimum amount of liability coverage, but some people ignore this law or maintain a policy with a limit that is well below the amount of damage incurred. We’ll investigate the circumstances and explain the pros and cons of each option.
Few incidents are as disconcerting as a vehicle accident. If you or someone else needs medical attention, that must be the first priority. When everyone at the scene is in reasonably good shape, it’s important to remember that saying the wrong thing could have negative legal consequences down the road. Give whatever factual information you have to the reporting police officer, but keep in mind that the accident site is not the proper forum for assessing fault. Don’t admit responsibility, but get all of the objective information you can, including insurance details, photos of the scene and the names and contact information of any witnesses.
