    It is fairly common that a person in a wreck like this one will not experience pain for some time after the wreck. Insurance companies may try to say that a person isn't hurt because they didn't beg to be taken by ambulance to the Emergency Room, but juries understand usually that not all injuries are obvious right after a wreck. I'm very glad that you and your unborn child are getting checked out by your physician,. There are a few things you should consider, such as notifying your...

    I am glad to hear that you have Med Pay coverage. This can be very helpful, especially if you do not have any other health insurance. Often, the way the process works is this: you use your Med Pay coverage to pay for your medical treatment for your injuries caused by the wreck. When you are finished with any necessary medical treatment, you can attempt to settle your claim with the other driver's insurance company, if they were at fault in the wreck. You may also have a type of coverage...

    Getting straight answers from an insurance company in serious cases like your husband's can be like trying to grab a handful of water. So, yes, I do recommend that you retain an experienced attorney who has actually tried cases. There are all sorts of issues that need to be dealt with in this kind of case - getting pictures and doing a complete investigation, identifying all applicable insurance coverage, and, most importantly, making sure that your husband gets good treatment for his...

    I hope you have recovered from any injuries you received in this wreck. There are a few things I would suggest. First, when did this wreck occur? Georgia has a general 2 year Statute of Limitations for personal injury actions, so you want to make absolutely sure you comply with the applicable Statute of Limitations. This can be complicated, so please speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Also, have you taken, or had someone take, photographs of the scene and the vehicles? Do you know...

    Your problem is far too common - we see too many times that insurance companies delay or just refuse to pay legitimate claims. I guess they hope people will just give up if the insurance company makes it as hard as possible on them. Because of the amount of money involved, it may be hard for you to find an attorney to help you. In an effort to try to help you, however, let me suggest that you contact the Insurance Commissioner of Georgia. They have an online consumer portal that you can use...

    The short answer is probably yes. But, like every case, it does depend on the specific facts. The first hurdle is proving that the driver was at fault. Usually the police report will indicate which driver is at fault in the wreck, but you can also rely on other witnesses to prove that the other driver was at fault (negligent) in causing your injuries. If the other driver is at fault, then Georgia law provides for several types of "damages" including lost wages, medical bills, and pain and...

    I'm sorry that you and your husband were injured in this wreck. There are at least 3 forms of insurance that are important in this type of situation: (1) liability insurance - you mention the drunk driver's insurance, but there may be other liability coverage. For example, there may be more liability coverage if the driver was driving a car owned by someone else (family member or employer, for example) at the time of the wreck; (2) Medical Payments coverage - this is coverage that you may...

    Many folks come to see us after an insurance company has not offered enough to settle their case. In your case, determining whether the amount offered is enough can only be answered by determining the amount of your total damages - including your total medical bills, any lost wages you have because of the wreck, and your pain and suffering. I would caution you that back injuries are often tricky - they can start out appearing to be insignificant, and then get worse to the point that a back...

    i'm sorry you went through this difficult ordeal. There are several issues that your question raises that may be important to your situation. For example, you don't mention where (which state) the wreck occurred, but that is important because it may affect which state's law applies to your claim. Also, I would suspect that you did have some type of physical injury in a wreck that was this serious, even if that injury was seemingly minor. If you did, then generally you can recover for your...

    The question "what is my case worth" is probably the most common question we are asked by clients. It's a reasonable question, but ultimately the honest answer is that the value of your case is whatever a jury will decide it's worth, so any attorney telling you that your case is worth a certain amount is really trying to predict what a jury would consider fair and reasonable. I will say this - I believe juries usually get it right. So, while predicting what juries will do is more art...
