Most of us don’t perceive everyday car travel as a threat — it’s just the way you get where you’re going. But in fact, statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that motor vehicle crashes are the leading accidental killer of Americans, and the leading cause of death overall for Americans ages two to 34. In 2006, more than 42,000 people were killed in automobile accidents, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The same study showed that more than 2.57 million were injured, at a cost of more than $200 billion. When auto accident victims survive, they may come away with life-changing injuries like brain damage, spinal injuries, serious burns and multiple fractures. Even a minor accident can cause serious neck or head injuries, significant repair bills and insurance headaches. If somebody else caused your injuries with negligence, inattention or illegal behavior on the road, Georgia law gives you the legal right to recover compensation.
Atlanta Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers
After an accident, many people rely on insurance adjustors to investigate what happened and offer a fair financial settlement. But adjustors work for an insurance company, not for you, and their job is to keep financial costs low. Sometimes, these adjustors will offer you too little money to cover all of your costs. If negotiating in good faith with the adjustors doesn’t work, you may need to file a Georgia car accident lawsuit in order to secure all the compensation you need to cover your costs. Occasionally, insurers will find excuses not to cover you at all, even when your insurance plan should cover the accident. When an insurer refuses to honor a legitimate claim, it’s called insurance bad faith, and it’s illegal. Victims of insurance bad faith have the right to sue their insurance companies, to recover the compensation they deserve and expose the insurers’ illegal behavior.
