Your Personal Injury Attorneys in the Southeast

Savannah Bodily Injury Attorney

Most drivers in Georgia have insurance policies that will cover damages for people who suffer injuries in an accident.

The Costs that Bodily Injury Liabilities Policies Can Cover

These policies are designed to cover costs or losses associated with mental or physical problems caused by the accident.

  • • Medical costs are the most common expenses that insurance will cover. This can include surgeries, physical therapy, and other related costs.
  • • Lost wages are also common, especially if the injury caused the victim to miss work.
  • • Pain and suffering is another common damage that can be recovered. This is essentially a way of accounting for the pain, fear, and trauma that you had to deal with while recovering from the accident.

Legal fees are also often included in the settlement. If you choose to work with the Claiborne Firm to recover damages, you will not pay us by the hour. Instead, we will receive a portion of the settlement. This means that you only pay us if you recover damages.

Bodily and Personal Injury Policies

A bodily injury is always used to describe the injuries that a victim received in a traffic accident. Personal injury refers to a much broader range of injuries and incidents. It means that one person was harmed due to another person’s negligence.

Generally speaking, bodily injury claims will go through insurance, while personal injury claims will involve a lawsuit.

Bodily Injury Insurance Policies

It is very rare for car accident cases to go to court. Claims will be filed with the insurance companies. The policies exist to cover the costs associated with the injuries sustained in the accident.

Georgia Law requires every driver to carry a policy that will cover at least $25,000 per victim and $50,000 per accident. Furthermore, these policies must also cover $25,000 of property damage for each accident.

If no settlement can be reached based on the driver’s insurance policy, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed. This will bring the case to court and make the case a personal injury case instead of a bodily injury case.

Speak to an Attorney Before Agreeing to Anything

The driver’s insurance policy will often cover a chunk of the damages incurred by the injury. But involving an attorney will help you avoid getting undercut. Insurance companies will always try to pay out as little as possible, even if that means denying a victim money that they are clearly entitled to.

Working with an attorney can help you ensure that you receive the full amount that you deserve. An attorney can also help you file a personal injury lawsuit if the insurance company is refusing to cooperate.
