Ten Things You Need To Know About A Georgia Automobile Accident Case

  1. Get the Georgia Motor Vehicle Accident Report ASAP.

  2. You should not give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster.

  3. If you have a severe pain or a severe headache, go to the emergency room ASAP.

  4. You should not give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster.

  5. If you are injured, do not delay in seeking treatment. Go to the ER or to your doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Do not try to “tough it out”. Delays in treatment will be used against you to suggest you were not really hurt in the accident.

  6. Gaps between visits to doctors of weeks or months can really hurt your case. Listen to your doctors. Do not skip appointments for physical therapy because you feel a little better a particular week.

  7. Visit reputable physicians.

  8. If you have health insurance, make a claim against your health insurance for your injury treatments. Do not try to ask the auto insurance company of the driver that injured you to pay for your ongoing treatment.

  9. Chiropractor overtreatment can really hurt your case.

  10. Get a copy of the declarations page of your policy to review in case the driver that hit you does not have insurance or has insufficient insurance to cover your damages.
