Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Motor vehicle crashes, nursing home abuse, pedestrian accidents, bicycle crashes, slip and falls, workplace accidents, and various incidents caused by negligence or wrongful intentional acts can leave people suffering from devastating physical, financial, and emotional injuries. If this happens to you, you are legally entitled to demand compensation for your losses through a personal injury claim.

Without legal representation, however, injured victims may get overwhelmed and statistically will settle their claims for an amount that will not cover all their injury-related losses. The Georgia personal injury lawyers at Banks, Stubbs & McFarland know what it takes to secure justice and fair compensation for injured clients. Let us do the same for you and your family by:

Handling The Entire Investigation

A crucial part of any personal injury claim is investigating the accident or incident to figure out what happened to the injured victim. Our Georgia personal injury attorneys will investigate the crash to obtain evidence to prove your injuries and damages, as well as establish liability and fault for the accident and your injuries.

Dealing With Insurance Providers

Insurance providers will always attempt to reduce the amount they pay injured claimants or deny claims entirely. They often dangle a quick but lowball settlement offer and use their team of insurance claims adjusters and attorneys to get claimants to settle their claims as fast as possible. Sadly, many people who are unaware of how negotiations and insurance claims work do not know if a settlement offer is fair, so they settle their claims for significantly less money than they deserve.

With an experienced Georgia personal injury lawyer fighting for you, you can rest assured that you will receive the maximum compensation amount you’re entitled to under the law.

Identifying All Possible Sources of Compensation

One of the reasons that you need a personal injury lawyer is to identify every source of insurance coverage that's available to pay your claim. Our Georgia personal injury lawyer will do this by sending a certified letter to every insurance provider that may have any liability for your claim.

For instance, in a recent pedestrian accident case we handled, upon making a request via certified mail, we received a written notice from the insurance provider stating there was a $250,000 liability insurance policy and an umbrella policy of $1 million. Based on the information we received, we sent a demand for the $1.25 million policy limits, and our client was able to settle the claim for the full policy limits. But that would never have happened if we didn't identify every source of insurance coverage that applied to their claim.

Fighting For You In Court

Sometimes, settlement negotiations fall through for various reasons. If this happens, our Georgia personal injury lawyer will be ready to fight for you in a trial to ensure you get what you deserve.
