Your Rights After a McDonough, Georgia Car Accident
Auto accidents can cause expensive injuries, especially if the crash is a high speed or head-on collision or if it involves large vehicles like buses or trucks. In many cases, those coping with serious injuries from car accidents are also unable to work as a result of their injuries.

Georgia law recognizes that the costs of car accidents and the loss of income can be devastating. As such, those who are responsible for causing an auto accident are obligated to pay for the economic losses that result. Georgia Law also mandates that a driver responsible for a crash compensate the victim for non-economic losses including pain and suffering and emotional distress. In situations where an auto accident causes death, Georgia allows surviving family members of the deceased to hold the responsible driver accountable through a wrongful death claim.

To obtain any type of compensation, however, you will either need to negotiate with the insurance company or take your case to court and prove your claim for damages. Doing either is very complicated and you should consult with an experienced McDonough, Georgia Car Accident Lawyer for assistance.
