Should You Take An Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer?

As a general rule, you should never immediately accept an auto insurance company’s first offer without first obtaining a comprehensive picture of your total losses — ideally with the help of a Lawrenceville auto accident attorney. You should only do this if you’re certain your car sustained minor damage and no injury claim will be needed down the road.

When it comes to the first settlement offer, always remember the following:

  • It’s almost always going to be a lowball offer, far below the actual costs of your injuries;
  • It’s not likely to include payment for all of your damages — pain and suffering, as well as other long-term needs that may include lost wages, rehabilitation costs, medical bills, etc.;
  • In most cases, it won’t be the last offer.

Most of the time, what the insurance company offers is far less than you’re entitled to — and simply signing away your rights means you can’t go back and get what you deserve. Additionally, some insurance adjusters might pressure you into making statements that can harm your claim or signing releases that they can use against your accident case.

That’s why you need a car accident personal injury attorney to handle your case. A Lawrenceville auto accident lawyer understands that the first settlement offer is just the beginning of the negotiation process; they’ll explain your legal rights, the details of your case, determine negligent behavior, protect your rights, and entail the fair compensation you deserve. Good legal representation will negotiate effectively with insurance companies, who in turn are more inclined to pay out bigger sums in insurance claims when there’s an attorney involved.

For experienced representation you can count on, contact Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C.

What’s The Law For A DUI In Lawrenceville, Atlanta?

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a crime with very serious penalties and is not something to take lightly. If you’re arrested for DUI in the city of Atlanta, the court process can be long and exhausting. Normally, there are several hearings, which may take place in administrative, criminal, or even Atlanta municipal court.

Drunk Driving Consequences

The Georgia implied consent law stipulates that by simply driving in the state, you consent to sobriety testing if requested by law enforcement. If you refuse state-administered breathalyzer tests, the officer can seize your license and issue you a DS-1205 form, which acts as a 45-day temporary driving permit as well as notice of an upcoming administrative license suspension. The police officer can also seize your license outright if your chemical test results are over the legal limit (breath/blood alcohol level exceeds .08 in the last three hours of driving).

A DUI in Georgia can result in incarceration, heavy fines, counseling, suspension driver’s license, and more. DUI’s can also be treated as a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the facts of the case. Further, life without a valid license can be a struggle, especially for those who rely on it for their livelihood and well-being. It can become hard to get to and from work, school, and other necessary daily activities. And don’t be tempted to drive without one: driving without a valid license incurs serious legal risks, including fines and other penalties.

Appealing The Administrative License Suspension

There are two ways to appeal the suspension: through an administrative license suspension hearing (where both criminal and administrative courts will hear your DUI case) or by obtaining an ignition interlock device limited permit. Choosing the latter puts you on a limited driver’s license, good only for driving in Georgia, regardless of whether you are convicted of DUI. Either way, you have 30 days from the date of your arrest to decide what you want to do next.
