How to Establish Negligence in Your Case
Every driver must uphold a duty of reasonable care, or they may be found
in violation and can be held liable for any negligent actions. While a
person is operating a motor vehicle, they must:
- Drive at a reasonable speed
- Keep a proper lookout on the road and the things around them
- Maintain control of the automobile
- Use the car's equipment properly.
If a driver fails to do any/all of these things and causes an accident,
they can and should be held liable for their negligence. Depending on
your case, an experienced Atlanta car accident lawyer from Henningsen
Injury Attorneys, P.C. can also subpoena certain documents needed for

Should I speak to my insurance adjuster first?
After a serious car accident, you might assume that your insurance adjuster
wants to help you obtain the money you deserve for your injuries. In reality,
your insurance company wants to avoid paying for your injury. They will often offer you the lowest amount of money possible
to ensure that their bottom line is not affected by the accident. The
following instructions should always be kept in mind when dealing with
the insurance company after an accident:
- Never make statements that admit fault without first speaking to a lawyer
- Never sign paper work without first speaking to an experienced attorney
- Avoid speaking with an adjuster from the other driver's insurance company
(any statements that you make could be used to avoid giving you the money
that you deserve)
- If you must speak with an insurance company, only talk about the facts
of the accident so that the insurance company can draw a rational conclusion
from your statements
While you should report the accident to your insurance immediately, you
should never make any statements regarding the accident to the other person's
insurance company without a lawyer present. Insurance companies are trained
to find ways to pay you less than what you deserve, and if you say anything
wrong, you may not receive the amount of money to which you are entitled.
