Motor vehicle accidents are quite common in Georgia and have devastating consequences. While some people survive crashes, others lose their lives. An accident survivor under Georgia law can file a compensation claim against the fault party through an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
If the claim succeeds, the fault party will pay economic and non-economic damages to the victim. The compensation aims to return the party to the status they were in before the accident. Unfortunately, the claims process is not as easy as it appears, hence, the need for an attorney.
