You should seek medical attention and consult with a lawyer who is acquainted with Georgia’s legal system after an automobile incident, and you should consider hiring legal counsel if you want to ensure that your legal rights are protected. If a large insurance company wants to take advantage of you, they can try to convince you to accept a lesser settlement offer, but if you are an attorney on your side, you can avoid these types of dangers during the claim process.
Auto accident victims frequently delay retaining legal counsel due to budgetary restrictions. Insurance adjusters can assert—without any evidence to back them up—that law firms predominantly exploit deserving clients by demanding high legal fees and other expenses in an effort to defraud them of their money. You must speak with a lawyer about your case in order to receive fair compensation and safeguard your legal rights.
