Understanding Insurance in Auto Accidents
The state of Georgia requires all drivers to have a minimum amount of liability auto insurance. In the event of an auto accident involving injuries and/or property damage, the at-fault driver’s liability insurance is the typically first avenue used to pursue compensation.
Unfortunately, a driver’s liability insurance may not always be enough to cover all of the damages and expenses caused by an accident. In cases where damages exceed the available insurance / a driver’s policy limits, victims and attorneys should look toward other avenues for compensation, including uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage can help in several cases, including those involving:
- Accidents with uninsured drivers
- Underinsured drivers / not enough coverage
- Passenger insured caused by uninsured driver
- Pedestrian accidents
- Hit and run accidents
- Serious injuries
If you have purchased uninsured / underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, an attorney from our firm can help you in navigating the complexities involved in these car accident claims. Our team of Atlanta personal injury lawyers have extensive experience protecting the rights of victims and fighting back against insurance companies that only aim to pay as little as possible.
Pursuing the Maximum Compensation Possible
In all cases we handle, we strive to help victims and their loved ones secure the compensation needed to aid them in their recovery and the journey to rebuild their lives. This is achieved by closely evaluating cases and determining all available forms of compensation, whether it be through insurance, UM / UIM coverage, and/or the liability of a third party.
Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for accident victims to help cover damages that include:
- Medical expenses and future medical care
- Missed work wages and lost future earnings
- Pain and suffering and mental anguish
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of companionship and support
