Helping You Get Full Value For Your Auto Wreck Case

Thousands of motorists in Georgia become injury victims in auto collisions each year. This victimization continues throughout the process of negotiation with bodily injury adjusters working for the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

Time and again, the insurance carrier puts little or no value on the victim’s injuries, and the end result is a reduced settlement with the insurance company coming out on top. Not only is the injury victim left under-compensated, but the insurance carrier is emboldened to continue this irresponsible and unscrupulous practice in the future. In the absence of quality legal representation, these companies and their adjusters see no true exposure in failing to settle these cases for the proper dollar amount.

Experienced Car Accident Representation In Metro Atlanta

At The Houghton Law Firm, LLC, we prepare every single client’s case for jury trial and work diligently to maximize the value of every claim. Under Georgia law, every injury victim is allowed to recover the full value of all economic and non-economic damages suffered as a result of an at-fault driver. Those damages include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost income, pain and suffering, permanent disability or disfigurement, diminished quality of life, pre-impact fright, and mental distress and anguish. We also assist with the property damage claim to repair or replace your vehicle.

By demonstrating to the insurance carrier the true exposure that a particular auto case may pose to their insured’s assets at jury trial, these cases can often settle for the appropriate value prior to trial.  However, if there is no proper settlement offer from the insurance company prior to trial, attorney John Houghton has no hesitation trying these cases to verdict.

TIPS FOR VICTIMS OF AN AUTO COLLISION:

  • Take numerous photos of property damage and injuries at the scene. Do not hesitate to use your camera phone.
  • Do not submit to a recorded statement to either the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier or your own until you have consulted with legal counsel.
  • Always be courteous and respectful to the investigating officer at the scene; give the investigating officer a description of the facts and circumstances surrounding the collision and be careful to avoid opinions as to liability.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as practical after the collision.
  • Keep copies of all expenses related to the injuries sustained
