Albany, GA based Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. would like to explain how they can help auto accident victims in and around Sandy Springs. The firm has been providing legal representation for auto accident victims for years, helping them get the financial compensation they need to deal with medical bills and other issues associated with auto accidents in the area. They understand the importance of good legal representation in the event of an auto accident and strive to be the very best in the field.
“When there is an accident on the side of a busy highway, people might slow down to offer a glance, but they will then proceed on their way without much of a second thought,” says the firm. “When something doesn’t affect us personally, we tend to ignore it. So what happens when the person on the side of the road in an accident is us? Accidents happen every day, and one of the biggest culprits is negligence on the part of the at-fault driver. Accident-related injuries can be severe or even fatal. If you’ve been in a car accident, it’s important to have an accident lawyer on your side to make sure there is whoever caused the accident is held accountable.”
The first thing anyone should do after an accident is call the police, especially in cases where the person calling is the victim. Calling the police means that the authorities are notified and thus able to file a report, and other emergency services will be contacted in turn if deemed necessary. The police’s job is to determine who is at fault. They do this by examining the scene of the accident, listening to accounts from both drivers and listening to witness statements. They will also issue citations to whichever driver is at fault along with a police report number that can later be used by the insurance company and attorneys to look up the case.
After calling the police and making a report, accident victims are advised to see a doctor, even if only for minor pain or discomfort. Doctors can run tests and provide evidence of injury, which can be very important if it becomes necessary to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. It is also important to see a doctor because they can prescribe medications to mitigate pain or other symptoms of injury.
Next, it is crucial for victims (or their trusted representatives) to talk to an attorney. “Dealing with insurance companies can be complex and stressful,” says Kenneth S. Nugent. “When you need advice and help with an insurance claim, don’t hesitate to consult with a skilled Sandy Springs injury lawyer. We offer free consultations so that you can ask any questions about your situation. The attorneys at our firm are knowledgeable in all areas of the process and will guide you through it step-by-step so that everything is done correctly. If you don’t have legal representation, your case may not be as successful. An insurance company might pressure you into accepting a much smaller settlement than what’s justly deserved. Hiring an accident attorney is the best way to protect your rights.”
The amount an individual can claim after being injured in an auto accident is determined by how serious the injuries are, how extensive the damage done to personal property is, disability and more. Every case is unique and comes with its own unique set of factors, meaning it is not always possible to determine the exact amount an individual is entitled to. Kenneth Nugent’s approach is to simply fight for the absolute maximum amount a client can potentially get out of their case. With their free consultations, the firm helps the client determine roughly how much they might get out of a case — and if the firm’s attorneys will be able to assist. They charge no fees unless the client wins.
The firm seeks to help everyone in Sandy Springs, and they are confident in their ability to help with almost any kind of auto accident. Interested parties may visit the firm's website to get in touch and book a free consultation.
