This article is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of Atlanta, Georgia pedestrian accident cases. I felt it was necessary due to the fact that, understandably, many people do not know what to do after they or a loved one have been hit by an oncoming car. Given the fact that such a victim may not understand their rights or options, I wrote my last several articles with the goal of providing information which will help people to better understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a personal injury attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I addressed numerous topics over my recent articles. Subjects which I discussed included:
- Comparative fault in pedestrian accident cases
- Conducting discovery after a pedestrian accident
- Calculating an injured pedestrian’s damages
- Taking a pedestrian injury case to trial
I chose to address these topics for multiple reasons. First, many do not realize that they may still possibly recover compensation even if they were partially to blame for the incident. Georgia’s comparative fault laws can allow a partially liable victim to still receive compensation. Second, the discovery process can be vital to uncovering proof of the defendant’s negligence. Such evidence, for example, may include cell phone records which show that the defendant was texting while driving. Third, there are many components to a damages calculation and victims should understand each of them. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process can help to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible.
One point I stressed in each of these articles is that you should contact an attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one have been injured. You only have a limited amount of time in which you may bring an action and by protecting your rights, immediately, you help to ensure that your matter is handled properly.
