McDonough Personal Injury Lawyer

McDonough's Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers

5 Reasons To Call Our McDonough, Georgia Attorneys Now If You Were Injured

1) We’re local. That means you don’t have to drive a long distance to meet with our attorneys. In addition, we have experience with the local police, court system, and other services that can give you an edge in proving your claim. If you hire attorneys from outside the area, it may be harder for them to investigate and win your case.

2) We’re experienced. Our attorneys have been handling personal injury cases exclusively for 29 years. Unlike some firms that jump from accident cases to divorce to other areas of law, our attorneys and staff focus all their time on personal injury claims. Specialization gives us an advantage at the negotiation table and in the courtroom.

3) We’re the right size. Unlike the large law firms you see advertised on TV, our attorneys only handle a small number of cases at a time so that we can give each client the personal attention they deserve. Huge firms juggle many cases at once, and their attorneys often don’t have the experience or time to properly investigate and/or take a case to trial.

4) We work hard for you. After an accident, it can be difficult and stressful trying to handle an insurance claim while medical bills pile up. When you hire us, our attorneys work hard to gather all the evidence necessary to build a strong claim for maximum compensation so that you only need to focus on recovering from your injuries.

5) Our goal is a fast settlement. We know you need money fast after you’ve been hurt in an accident, but you also shouldn’t accept a settlement offer that doesn’t fully cover the cost of your claim. That’s why our attorneys go to work immediately to investigate your claim and submit a settlement demand that documents all your losses as quickly as possible. Proving your claim early is crucial to achieving a fast, fair settlement from the insurance company.

Insurance Will Pay You Less, Hoping You Don’t Hire a Lawyer

Even though insurance companies are in the business of providing coverage for risks, they make money by collecting premiums while paying as little as possible for injury claims. Typically, insurance companies make the most money when people don’t hire a lawyer to handle their claim. Why?

Because carriers know that they’re more likely to get away with tactics designed to deny, reduce, or delay payment when the victim isn’t represented by an attorney. For example, it’s common for an insurance company to offer a quick settlement check to severely injured accident victims that doesn’t cover all their bills and other losses. The carrier is counting on the fact that the unrepresented victim probably doesn’t understand the full value of their claim—and once they accept the offer, they can’t pursue more compensation in the future.

An experienced attorney knows how much you deserve for your claim and how to fight against the insurance company’s tactics. Once the carrier sees you’re represented by a lawyer, it is more likely to negotiate fairly to avoid a costly lawsuit.

How Our Team Builds Strong Legal Claims

To recover maximum compensation for your accident, our attorneys first work to build a strong legal claim. That means we go out to gather evidence that proves negligence and analyze what will have the highest impact on the value of your case. For example, we find and interview all witnesses to ensure their statements are accounted for and credible. We also go to the scene of the accident and collect any video footage from nearby businesses that could show what happened.

After collecting all the necessary evidence, our team conducts research to find the total value, or cost, of the accident. The total cost should include all economic losses, such as past and future medical expenses, lost income, and vehicle repairs, as well as noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering and diminished quality of life. Under Georgia law, you’re entitled to recover these costs from the negligent party.

If the at-fault party is insured, our team investigates to find how much insurance coverage is available under all applicable policy limits. Knowing how much liability coverage is available is important when negotiating a settlement because the carrier is required by law to exhaust the policy to pay out a valid claim.

Based on what we gather and our knowledge of local and state laws, we are able to draft an effective settlement demand letter to the insurance company that lays out the evidence and total cost of the accident. We then negotiate back and forth with insurance company representatives until they agree to cover the full cost of the collision.

If necessary, our attorneys are prepared to file a lawsuit and take the case to trial to get maximum compensation for the resident/victim. Once a settlement or verdict is reached, we continue working to make sure you receive payment as soon as possible.
