Suggested Steps to Take If You Have Been Injured

Answers from Our Athens Personal Injury Lawyer

First and foremost, seek appropriate medical care immediately. Your health will affect you for the rest of your lifetime. Your medical treatment and care is of the utmost importance. So, if you have suffered an injury, seek immediate medical attention and inform the medical professional of all of your symptoms. This is extremely important so that you can begin to receive additional medical care in order to treat the injuries that were forced upon you. It is also wise to retain skilled representation at this time. Our personal injury attorney in Athens is here to help you – contact us today!

Next, keep in mind that you are not required to give a recorded statement to the insurance carrier of the liable party, nor do you have to sign any medical release for them. Additionally, certain pieces of evidence are only able to be obtained during the initial phases of a collision or incident causing you or your loved ones harm, if these pieces of evidence are not properly instructed to be preserved it can be detrimental to your case. Joshua W. Branch will ensure these pieces of evidence are secured but keep in mind that timing is of the essence. Something else to keep in mind is that pictures of your injuries and of various aspects of the collision and/or incident can make a gigantic difference in the presentation of your case and should begin being documented as soon as practical. You can rely on Joshua W. Branch to provide you the utmost in professional legal representation throughout this trying time so that you can focus on returning to the health you once had before this ever occurred. All the while, Mr. Branch will be fighting the insurance companies on your behalf.

When your medical treatment is complete and you have regained your health, Mr. Branch will work on resolving your case. Resolution of your case will occur either through a fair and just negotiation process and settlement or trial. If the insurance company refuses to negotiate fairly, we will file a law suit on your behalf. This will allow a jury of peers to decide your case in court.

Time is of the essence in all personal injury cases for many reasons. If appropriate medical conditions are not being diagnosed and are left untreated, the condition could worsen. In addition, Georgia has a statute of limitations on personal injury cases which bars recovery after the statute expires. In simple terms, this means that if you wait too long to resolve your case, recovery can never be obtained. Furthermore, the insurance company will begin their attempt to minimize the recovery on your case immediately after your injury occurs. You need someone on your side with experience who will ensure you receive fair and just financial compensation and the justice you need and deserve. Our skilled Athens personal injury lawyer is prepared to do everything the law allows in order to make sure you are cared for as you would expect from family.
