Atlanta Car Accident Attorneys
Determining Fault in a Car Accident
The first step in recovering damages after a car accident is determining
who is at fault. When you work with our firm, we can assess the damage
to your car, person, and/or property and inform you of your legal rights.
Since the at-fault party's auto insurance company will quickly go
about investigating the accident in an attempt to reduce the amount of
money you are owed,
Attorney Todd Henningsen will also investigate your collision. Our
personal injury lawyer in Atlanta can argue that the other driver's negligence resulted in the accident,
using key pieces of evidence to prove their fault.
Proving Fault in a Car Accident
Proving liability is a fancy way of saying that you are going to prove
who caused the car accident. Accidents usually occur because someone was
negligent or failed to exercise enough caution while driving. It is important
to determine liability as infallibly as you can, as the insurance company
will look for every loophole they can to prove you wrong.
As an "at fault" state, Georgia drivers who are victims of car
accidents can seek compensation from the at-fault party, the guilty party's
insurance company, and their own insurance company. When seeking compensation
from the at-fault party's insurance, be mindful that they will try
to dissuade or confuse you when seeking damages.
Attorney Todd Henningsen can argue the at-fault party:
- Failed to pay attention to their surroundings
- Was distracted while driving
- Drove under the influence
- Violated traffic laws
- Drove without a valid license
In order to prove the at-fault party's guilt, our firm can:
- Review police reports and photographs
- Interview witnesses
- Review video footage of the accident
- Look over the driving record of both parties
- Recreate the scene of the accident
How to Deal with the Insurance Company
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to remember
that the insurance company is not on your side. Their only goal is to
pay you as little as money as possible, which means that adjusters will
often do whatever it takes to settle a claim – even if that means
bullying the victim into accepting their offer. They may claim that they
have offered you all of the money that is available, or that your chances
of recovering more would be slim if you took your case to trial, but you
shouldn't take their word for it until you have spoken to an Atlanta
injury lawyer from Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C.
Our firm has
recovered millions of dollars in damages on behalf of past clients – many of which were offered little to no compensation from the
