Atlanta's Car Accidents | FAST HELPSevere car accidents can lead to permanent injuries that require long-term medical and financial support. Though most car accidents occur within a moment’s notice, the potential consequences around chronic pain and physical impairments can last forever. If you or someone you care for is injured in a car accident, you will need an experienced Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney who can protect your rights and file a personal injury claim on your behalf. The attorneys at FAST HELP can examine the details of the accident and determine how to prepare a case that sees you obtain the largest settlement offer possible.

Car Accidents in Atlanta and Georgia

Georgia’s drivers wind up in car accidents every day because of negligent or reckless behavior. Many rear-end collisions take place at traffic intersections because drivers are not paying attention to what’s in front of them. Other common car accidents are caused by:

  • Speeding
  • cell phone use
  • Intoxication
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Failure to signal when changing lanes
  • Exhaustion
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Failure to maintain control of a vehicle in poor weather conditions

Proving Negligence

To prove that another driver displayed negligent behavior at the time of the accident, you will need to demonstrate that the defendant violated the duty of reasonable care and that their actions are the direct cause of the collision. You are also required to prove that the accident is the primary cause of your pain, symptoms, and damages or that the event caused a preexisting condition to worsen.

Damages associated with emotional pain or suffering are difficult to prove as insurance companies often argue that there is no tangible evidence to prove such claims and that the plaintiff is embellishing or lying. Insurance adjusters will look for any opportunity to diminish the impact of the victim’s experience and the extent of their injuries. To do this, most adjusters claim that the plaintiff’s injuries are caused by:

  • Other events that occurred before the time of the accident
  • Former medical experiences
  • Degenerative conditions or disorders
  • Work-related accident injuries

The personal injury attorneys at FAST HELP can substantiate your claims by providing the official medical record that your doctor drafted after the accident. Such reports cite exactly when your injuries occurred, what caused them, and the short or long-term implications.
