Be Careful of Who You’re Dealing With
There are hundreds of law firms in the above counties. Some might even solicit you through the mail or phone calls. Beware of these lawyers and law firms. You might not learn who is working on your case. It could be assigned out to a junior associate attorney, a paralegal or even some other law firm. That’s not going to happen at Nelson & Smith. As a reference point, consider our qualifications:
- We know car accident law and how it affects your case. We understand how it affects you, your job, your finances and your family.
- We have experience with cases like your case. That’s why we know how to prepare the most effective strategy for you.
- We’re dedicated to obtaining maximum compensation for your injuries.
- We prepare every case as if it’s going to trial. If the opposing insurance company is slow or stubborn, we’re prepared to try your case in front of a judge and jury while the other side is still scurrying around and trying to prepare a defense.
Don’t Give a Statement to the Opposition
Shortly after your accident, a claims adjuster from the other insurance company might contact you “just to see if you’re feeling any better.” Then that adjuster will ask you for a written or recorded statement as to how the accident happened and the injuries that you suffered. Don’t ever give a written or recorded statement to the other insurance company. It will only try to use your very own words against you in the future in efforts to try to attack your credibility and devalue your case. Talk with us first. Everything that you say to us is confidential and protected under Georgia law.
Speak With Us Right Away
When a person is careless and negligent and causes a car accident with injuries, Georgia law allows an injured victim of that accident to seek compensation for his or her injuries. The negligent driver can be held responsible, and as a matter of social policy, similar accidents in the future are discouraged. Obtaining full and fair compensation for those injuries can be difficult though. That’s when a Warner Robins car accident lawyer from Nelson & Smith can be of great help. After having police investigate the accident and obtaining immediate medical treatment, we recommend that you speak with us right away.
