What Should You Do Immediately Following a Car Accident?
Being involved in a car accident can be a frightening experience. Knowing what to do after an accident will dramatically improve your chances of being able to maximize your claim and recover compensation commensurate to your injuries.
Here are some of the steps that will help substantiate your claims of injury and loss following an accident:
- If you have sustained injury, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Have a doctor or other medical professional give you a thorough examination to determine the extent of any injuries you may have suffered. Unless you take immediate action to document and treat your injuries, you will have no basis for filing a claim.
- Return to the scene of the accident as soon as possible so you can gather key evidence or locate potential witnesses. When injuries are minor, this step can be done immediately. Should you be unable to return to the scene, a personal injury lawyer from our firm can assist you preserving the accident scene, conducting a thorough investigation into what may have caused the accident and determining liability.
- Take pictures and make notes about what you noticed before, during and after the accident. Photos are important, documentary evidence in personal injury claims. Do not just take pictures of the accident scene itself, take pictures of the people and places around the scene as this can help show anything which may have contributed to the accident taking place. Any recollection you have of the accident could also be extremely pertinent to your case.
For an individual to file a personal injury claim, he or she must have sustained serious injury as a result of another person's negligence or neglect. If you have been involved in an accident and want to pursue damages, a personal injury lawyer from our firm stands ready to provide you with the assistance you require. Attorney Tony Kalka is a highly-skilled Lawrenceville accident lawyer who spent the first part of his career defending insurance companies and is now an aggressive advocate on behalf of accident victims and their families.
With our legal team fighting on your behalf, you will be able to actively pursue the most optimal outcome to your case. Call us now to find out how to proceed.

Accident With an Uninsured Motorist?
Georgia requires that all drivers maintain liability insurance; however, not everyone abides by this law. While we do everything to obey the law and carry the state-required insurance, we can easily get involved in a collision with any one of the state's uninsured drivers.
Under normal circumstances when you're involved in a car accident, the at-fault party's insurance carrier pays for your property damage and bodily injuries. But, what happens if you're involved in a collision with one of the state's thousands of uninsured drivers?
The best thing for you to do if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver is to file a claim under your own policy's uninsured motorist coverage.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM)
Georgia uninsured motorist coverage (UM) is codified under O.C.G.A. §33-7-11, which states that no automobile liability insurance policy or auto insurance policy shall be issued or delivered to the owner in the state of Georgia unless it includes uninsured motorist coverage.
Your uninsured motorist coverage insures you against the damages caused by the at-fault driver who does not have liability insurance or who does not have enough insurance.
UM is designed to pay for your medical losses and property damage losses so you don't have to pay these out of pocket. UM coverage is available as "stackable" and "non-stackable." You can either purchase UM coverage that is the same as your liability coverage or you can purchase UM coverage that is less than your policy's liability limits; we recommend that you purchase stackable UM coverage that is the same as your liability limits.
We Understand How Insurance Companies Work & Will Fight for You
When it comes to paying out on uninsured motorist claims, many auto insurance companies actually fight these claims or deny them altogether. As the insured that has paid for UM coverage, you have every right to receive full payment from your insurance carrier.
As former insurance defense attorneys, we are closely familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to deny UM claims and we are well-qualified to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
