You know the injuries that you have suffered, and you can likely estimate what you believe to be fair and equitable damages for those injuries.  However, the defendant in your Georgia car accident case likely has a different idea about what is fair and equitable to pay you for your injuries.  Therefore, it is not enough just to be able to estimate your damages.  You also need to know how to recover them.

Three Things You Can Do to Recover Fair Damages

First, keep good records.  Keep documentation of your accident and your injuries.  This may include pictures, doctor’s records and other evidence of your claims.

Second, don’t talk to an insurance agent.  The insurance agent’s job is to pay you as little as possible for your claim, not to look out for your best interests.  An insurance agent can use what you say against you later.  For that reason, it is important to let your Alpharetta and Atlanta car accident attorney handle negotiations with your insurance agent on your behalf.

Third, hire an experienced Alpharetta and Atlanta car accident lawyer.  Your lawyer will make sure that all of your rights are protected and that as strong a case as possible is presented during negotiations and, if necessary, at trial.
