HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH INSURANCE COVERAGE THERE IS FOR AN ACCIDENT?
One of the most important services that our Macon car accident lawyers provide is an exhaustive search for possible insurance coverage. If you have been involved in a car accident and seriously injured, finding sources to compensate you for injuries and pain and suffering is critical.
One of the most frustrating issues for many of our clients is they maintained high limits of liability coverage to protect their personal assets and provide protection for others injured by their negligence; however, maintaining high limits of liability coverage does not necessarily mean that there will be sufficient insurance coverage for you in the event that you are involved in a serious car accident. That is why we encourage people to speak with their insurance agent about the limits of the uninsured motorist coverage.
WHAT TYPES OF THINGS CAN I DO TO HELP MY MACON CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER?
- Seek Medical Attention. After a car accident, your body can be in a state of shock, which could keep you from feeling pain at first. You could also sustain injuries that might not appear until days after the accident. Some symptoms to look out for are pain, numbness, discomfort, dizziness, etc. If any of these are felt, you should seek medical attention from a doctor immediately. Not only will this help you health and help you recover better and faster, but it will also strengthen you personal injury claim. The longer you wait to seek medical attention, the harder it is to prove that these injuries resulted from the accident itself. So always make sure to go to the doctor immediately following the accident.
- Take detailed notes and photos. When you go see a doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or any other health professional, always write down their contact information. Also, keep very detailed notes on any injuries you may have suffered from and any medical treatment given to you. This also includes keeping receipts for medications that you may have been prescribed or any assistive devices such as crutches that may have been needed. Make sure to keep record of any contact you have with your medical health professional during your course of treatment such as emails and telephone calls. Lastly, keep all of your medical bills and receipts you received. All of this will help strengthen your case.
- Take photos of your injuries. If possible, you or a family member or a friend should take pictures of all your injuries. This will be useful if the insurance company is giving you trouble getting a settlement or if you decide to hire a personal injury attorney. Photographic evidence will become very valuable in either of those situations.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR MACON CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Everyone keeps asking me what my policy limits are. What are insurance policy limits, and why do they matter to my Macon car accident case?
When you purchase insurance, you are engaging in a contract (an agreement) with the insurance company. That contract says that if you are involved a covered accident (and not all accidents are covered), they will pay out a certain amount of money. The limitations on the amount of money that the insurance company will pay is determined by the limits of coverage in the policy. Those limitations of coverage are the policy limits.
I HAD INSURANCE COVERAGE. WHY WON'T IT PAY FOR THE INJURIES THAT I RECEIVED IN THE ACCIDENT?
Most vehicle insurance policies have 3 parts: (1) liability insurance for injuries to OTHER people by you, (2) liability insurance for injuries to OTHER people's property, and (3) uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage for injuries to YOU caused by OTHER people that did not have any or sufficient insurance coverage to pay for your injuries. Georgia law allows people to have lower uninsured/underinsured policy limits than their liability insurance limits. Liability insurance protects you, your assets, and your family against a lawsuit for injuries that you caused someone else.

WE WERE RECENTLY INVOLVED IN A VERY SERIOUS CAR ACCIDENT IN MACON. WE HAVE THINGS IN OUR CAR THAT WE WOULD LIKE BACK. WHY IS THERE A HOLD ON THE CAR PREVENTING US FROM GETTING ACCESS?

HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED IN AN A CAR ACCIDENT IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE IN MACON?
I-16, I-75, and I-475 are constant corridors of commerce throughout our community. However, in those interstates, we also see a very high level of construction activity that's ongoing in our community. One of the areas that injury attorneys frequently overlook in accidents and even fatal accidents that occur in those construction areas, is whether or not the DOT and different contractors that are working on behalf of DOT are properly controlling the flow of traffic through those areas. Someone is out there marking it, whether or not they're closing lanes properly, in accordance with the DOT's protocol. If you have questions about an accident that may have occurred in one of those construction areas, feel free to call me. My name is Ben Sessions. My phone number's 478-254-2665. Again, 478-254-2665.
