Car Accident Lawyer
in Atlanta, GA

Car accidents can change your life and your loved ones lives forever. The physical injuries, emotional trauma, and financial hardships caused by an accident can be difficult to deal with, and many people and their families suffer greatly as a result.

GEORGIA ROADS ARE DANGEROUS

In 2016, there are projected to be 112,526 injuries from car accidents in Georgia. Those accidents are expected to kill 1,130 people.  Historically, metro Atlanta counties have been the most dangerous counties:

INVESTIGATIONS

Both the other driver’s insurance company and your insurance company will immediately launch an investigation. Insurance companies make money by paying less on auto accident claims, so their goal is to pay you as little as possible. 14 car insurance companies have revenues of more than $1 billion (click here to see what car companies top the list)

The insurance companies will ask you to provide a written or recorded statement explaining how the accident occurred, who was at fault, and how you were injured—do not do it! The insurance companies will twist your words and take parts of your statement out of context, and they will not give you enough time to properly assess your injuries and receive treatment. The insurance companies will also usually make low-ball offers and try to rush you into accepting, which will not be in your best interest.

Mike Rafi will conduct his own initial investigation and navigate you through the insurance company gauntlet by:

  1. Meeting with you
  2. Inspecting your vehicle for any defects
  3. Traveling to the scene to evaluate the crash
  4. Speaking to police and first-responders
  5. Finding witnesses and interviewing them
  6. Researching the other driver and his employer, if he was working
  7. Learning about your injuries and treatment

Each case is different, and Mike will adapt his investigation to fit your case.

EVALUATING YOUR DAMAGES

Determining the amount of damages you have suffered is as important as analyzing the circumstances leading to the crash. Common car accident injuries are back and neck injuries, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Damages that you may have suffered, include:

  1. Past medical expenses
  2. Future medical expenses
  3. Pain and suffering
  4. Lost wages
  5. Lost future wages
  6. Loss of enjoyment of life
  7. Loss of intimacy and support
  8. Punitive damages

There is no magic formula for determining how much your case is worth—the short answer is that your case is worth whatever a jury will award you. Juries are instructed to make fair and just awards under the laws. Accordingly, you should be fairly compensated for all of your injuries, whether you settle your case or take it to trial.

Mike Rafi has seen first-hand how car accidents can affect people’s lives, and Mike is a dedicated car accident lawyer in Atlanta helping those people and their loved ones. Mike will help his clients and fight to increase their recoveries before and at trial.  Mike Rafi believes in maximizing the value of every case he works on, not quick settlements that do not get you the money that you deserve.
