Car Accidents

Personal injury claims result from a variety of causes, but many of the cases handled by Fortson, Bentley and Griffin’s personal injury attorneys involve car accidents. Unfortunately, most of us have been affected in some way by a motor vehicle collision. Many victims of motor vehicle collisions believe the negligent party’s insurance must compensate them for the damage. In reality, it is usually not that simple. An insurance company first determines if the policy covers the accident at issue. If there is coverage, then the insurance company pays only if it agrees to pay or a court orders it to pay.

Like all businesses, insurance companies operate to make a profit. In simple terms, a profit is made when the money coming in (premiums) exceeds the money going out (claims). You deal with an “agent” to purchase your insurance. However, you deal with an “adjuster” when a claim is initially made. If you have been injured in a car accident, you should consult an attorney who is experienced in handling accident-related injury cases. The damages associated with injuries suffered in car accidents may be very significant. With the representation of one of FB&G’s experienced personal injury attorneys, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your injuries, including:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Bills
  • Permanent Disability
  • Future Medical Bills
  • Prescription Costs
  • Lost Benefits
