Our Hiram Car Accident Attorneys Fight for Your Rights
With motor vehicle collisions on the rise, the need for solid legal representation has never been more profound. As an injured victim, you do have the right to recover compensation, but only if you can prove that the other driver was negligent. All motorists have a duty to drive safely, so they may be liable for damages if they breach this legal obligation.
Our auto accident attorneys at Cohen & Sinowski advocate on behalf of victims in all types of motor vehicle incidents, including those caused by:
- Texting or using the phone while driving;
- Other forms of distracted driving;
- Front- and rear-end collisions;
- Reckless driving;
- Drunk and drugged driving;
- Hit and run; and,
- Many more.
Get the Compensation You Deserve Under Georgia Law
Injured victims suffer a wide range of damages after a car accident, but it is possible to recover monetary compensation for your losses. Some examples include:
- Medical costs, including emergency treatment, physical therapy, chiropractic care, pain prescriptions, and related expenses;
- Lost wages, if your injuries prevent you from working;
- Future earning capacity;
- Diminished quality of life, when you cannot participate in your favorite activities;
- Pain and suffering;
- Scarring and disfigurement; and,
- Other damages depending on the details of your case.
Note that there are some restrictions on your claim for compensation. Under the statute of limitations, you have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible driver. Plus, Georgia goes by the rule of comparative negligence. If your acts contributed to the car accident, your compensation is reduced by the amount of fault attributable to you. Our Hiram car accident attorneys can advise you on these legal issues.
