Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents

It is natural to have a lot of questions when you’ve been injured in an auto accident in Georgia. Following are some answers to most frequently asked questions:

  1. Should I Settle My Case? – It is up to you whether or not to settle your case when a settlement is offered. If it seems fair to you, and you are happy with it, then you certainly can. However, you would be wise to discuss it with an attorney first, because you can’t change your mind once you’ve accepted the offered settlement.
  1. Should I Give A Recorded Statement To The Insurance Company? – No. You should politely refuse to give any kind of statement to the insurance company without first speaking to an attorney and/or discussing the extent of your injuries with a physician.
  1. Should I Ride In The Ambulance If I Feel Fine? – You should never assume that you are uninjured because you don’t feel any serious pain or discomfort. Shock can mask the symptoms of injuries, and some injuries are more serious than they first appear. It is up to you whether or not you ride in the ambulance, but you should seek medical care right away. Keep in mind that refusing emergency care can be held against you later and used to suggest that your injuries were not as bad as you claim.
