Have you suffered life-altering injuries in a car accident in Atlanta? If someone else is to blame, you can file an insurance claim against them to recover compensation for the consequences of the crash. This would account for your medical bills, vehicle repairs, lost income, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, insurance companies are money-making businesses, and they work hard to deny claims, lowball payments, and defend their profits. You need someone who can fight back and come out on top. You need Bayuk Pratt.

Benefits of Hiring an Attorney for Your Car Accident Claim

Although you can pursue a car accident claim alone, hiring legal representation has several critical benefits.

First, an attorney can handle all the details of preparing and pursuing your legal claims, freeing you to devote time and energy to medical treatment and rehabilitation. An experienced lawyer will know how to investigate a car crash and calculate your ongoing and future anticipated expenses or losses. They can also guide you through the claims process, preparing you for what to expect at each stage.

Your attorney will also protect you from insurers’ tricks and tactics to minimize injured accident victims’ financial recovery. They can push back against them, negotiating hard for every cent you’re owed. And if the insurer doesn’t cooperate and your case ends up in court or at trial, an experienced litigator can present compelling arguments to the jury or judge to fight for a favorable verdict.

Are you worried about how much this representation might cost you? Don’t be. Most car accident law firms — including Bayuk Pratt — work on a contingency basis, which means they only charge a fee based on what they recover for you. If you don’t get paid, neither do they.

What to Do After a Car Accident

You can take steps after a car wreck to preserve your options for seeking compensation from the driver or other parties at fault for the accident. Among the things you should do after getting hurt in a car crash include the following:

  • Get immediate medical attention and follow your doctor’s treatment plan and recovery instructions. Do not put off medical procedures or rehabilitation. Remember to ask for copies of your treatment and rehab medical records.
  • Notify your car insurance company about the accident to ensure eligibility for applicable coverage under your insurance policy. This might include PIP, collision, or uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
  • Request copies of the police accident report if law enforcement responded to the crash scene.
  • Keep any bills, invoices, or receipts for medical treatment, car repairs, and other expenses you incur due to the accident.
  • Gather your pay stubs or income statements to determine your lost earnings if you miss time from work or transfer to another position.
