Car Accident Attorney in Columbus, GA

If You've Been Hurt, We Can Help!

Car accidents in Georgia happen every day. When the crash happens as a result of negligence or recklessness, injured victims may seek compensation for the damages inflicted upon them. However, Georgia compensation law requires accident victims to prove that the other party was the one who’s at fault for the accident.

What You Need to Know About Georgia's Personal Injury Law

Georgia gives accident victims a period of two years to file a personal injury claim following a car accident. If the case is filed after this period, it is almost certain that the case will be thrown out. While getting started with a car accident claim can be quick and easy, the discovery period or gathering the pieces of evidence is the one that takes most of the time.

Georgia is also a “mandated comparative negligence” state, which means that the percentage of each party’s fault is calculated and compared, with the lower percentage receiving compensation. In the event that the court finds that your own actions contributed to some percent of the crash, this percentage will be deducted to the amount you’ll receive.

Types of Recoverable Damages

While some people can walk away from a car accident with only some minor cuts and bruises, there are others who suffer from catastrophic injuries or even death. In case you’ve been seriously hurt or a loved one has passed as a result of a car accident, it is crucial that you enlist the representation of a skilled personal injury lawyer such as Attorney Mark Casto to help you obtain the most favorable compensation possible for your case.

At our firm, we strive to recover the following damages:

  • Current and future medical expenses

  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Rental cars

What to Do After a Car Accident

To help speed things up, we’ve provided some helpful tips on what you should do right after a car accident:

  • Check yourself and your passengers for any injuries
  • Call an ambulance and seek medical attention
  • You may also call the police to help you file a report
  • If you can, take several photos of the scene of the accident
  • Take the other driver’s information and remember to keep calm and remain respectful
  • Talk to witnesses at the scene and get their information
