Car Accidents in Duluth

The city of Duluth has experienced a drop in fatal accidents, dropping from 10 in 2018 to 2 in 2019, although the rate of nonfatal accidents is on the rise.

Large trucks are responsible for many of the motor vehicle accidents in the city, while drunk driving has remained an ongoing concern and danger on Duluth roads.

As with any city, whether Duluth, Gainesville, or elsewhere in Georgia, when someone or something else caused your accident, you could be entitled to damages. Exploring your options with a local car accident lawyer will help you collect the full amount you are entitled to.

What to Do After a Car Crash

In the moments immediately after your accident, your initial concern will be for the safety and wellbeing of yourself and any passengers in your vehicle.

Still, see if it’s possible to move your vehicle out of an active roadway. This helps to prevent additional collisions and further injury or damage.

Be Wary of Latent Injuries

After your injury, the insurance company of the driver who caused the accident will likely try and offer you a quick settlement. It is important to understand that when you accept a settlement, you are prevented from collecting anything further for your injuries and losses.

This means that if you have experienced something like a traumatic brain injury, where symptoms can worsen over time and impact your health and ability to work, you would be unable to collect more money to cover future costs and losses.

Accepting a settlement before the symptoms of a latent injury emerge can leave you and your family covering the associated costs out-of-pocket. The only way to collect complete damages for your car accident is by accurately calculating them and proving them with evidence.

This requires some work, knowledge of the law, and a network of local medical and occupational experts, all of which your experienced Duluth car accident lawyer from Rafi Law Firm can provide.

How We Can Help

Having an attorney on your case as soon as possible will support the best possible outcome. Evidence begins to fade the moment an accident happens, so the sooner you contact your Duluth car accident attorney from Rafi Law Firm, the sooner we can get to work collecting the evidence.

Here are the three primary areas we advocate on your behalf:

Helping You Recover from Your Injuries and Financial Burdens

In the immediate aftermath of your accident, you might worry about medical bills, missed wages, and work benefits. If your injuries lead to permanent changes in your physical or mental health, you are also entitled to additional compensation.

The financial burdens of an accident do not always stop after bruises heal and you repair your vehicle. If an injury changes your ability to earn, you are entitled to compensation from the time of your injury through your working life.

Calculating these amounts requires a thorough knowledge of similar case outcomes and how insurance companies and the courts value injuries. This is knowledge gained through the experience of your local Duluth car accident lawyer.

 

Protecting You from Predatory Insurance Tactics

Insurance companies profit the same as any other company, by maximizing revenues and minimizing costs. For the insurance company, revenues are the premiums they collect from their customers, and their costs are the amount of employee time and compensation they pay to injured persons such as yourself.

To increase profits, insurance companies employ full-time teams of claim analysts and attorneys to deny whichever claims they can, while paying as little as possible on those claims they determine must be approved.

Insurance companies have even been known to wrongfully deny claims in the hopes that the claimant will not appeal, or to get them to accept a lesser amount in settlement to just end the process.

Filing your initial claim with a Duluth car accident attorney makes the insurance company take you more seriously, as they know that your rights will be enforced, which can lead to you receiving a complete settlement in less time.

Upholding Your Legal Rights

When the insurance company refuses to approve your rightful claim, we can help you collect the evidence you need to file a successful appeal.

A well-constructed appeal can serve as the foundation of a lawsuit if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement. We handle it every step of the way from drafting into filing and through negotiation and final settlement.

When to Hire a Lawyer

Accepting a settlement without speaking with an attorney puts you at risk of being taken advantage of by the insurance company. This can leave you and your family to cover future costs and lost earnings related to your injury out of your own pocket.

With an attorney on your side as soon as possible after your car accident, you will have an advocate handling all communications and negotiations on your behalf. Your attorney will schedule the follow-up appointments and professional opinions you’ll need to calculate the full damages associated with your injuries.

The process of hiring a lawyer should be approached like a doctor, as it is important to find an attorney who practices in the area of law of your case to ensure a proper outcome. In the same way you would not go to a foot doctor for a problem with your eye, you would not go to a corporate attorney for your car accident case.

The Duluth car accident attorneys at Rafi Law Firm have extensive experience in car accidents, truck accidents, severe injury, and wrongful death. We have an in-depth understanding of the car accident settlement process to recover the full amount you are entitled to.
