If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in a car accident, you may be facing substantial costs for the injuries incurred or you may be facing substantial financial loss due to your loved ones death. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates the total annual costs from car accidents is around $277 billion, including costs for medical expenditures as well as loss of productivity and other losses. Victims and their families who bear the burden of these costs need to be compensated for their damages.
An Atlanta car accident lawyer can represent victims or surviving family members after a fatal crash. The goal is to get you the maximum compensation for damages so you can be fully and fairly compensated for all losses.
In many situations, victims are able to get a fair amount of compensation for damages by settling their claims outside of court. In other situations, however, a civil lawsuit will need to proceed to a trial for the victim to receive fair compensation and be “made whole” for all crash losses.
