10 Secrets Of Georgia Car Wreck Claims
How Long Will My Car Accident Claim Take?
1. Was there clear liability? Was it one hundred percent the fault of one party or to several drivers carry fault or blame for the accident.
2. Was anyone hurt? If not one was hurt the property damage claim to the vehicle should not take longer than a couple of months. If someone was injured did they seek treatment right away or are there major gaps in treatment.
3. Is there insurance coverage on the at-fault driver? If not, does the at-fault driver have any assets to pay for your medical care and your vehicle. Clearly a claim with no insurance coverage is much more difficult to pursue and collect on.
4. Does the other side want to settle? This can be the most important factor. If the other side does not wish to settle then likely a lawsuit will have to be filed and that can take much longer to resolve.

If you are reading after being in an auto accident in Atlanta, you should pull your policy and check for medical payments coverage. If you are hurt you now have a way to pay for it. Please note medical payments coverage varies in the amount of coverage. We typically see the coverage anywhere from $500.00 to $50,000.00.
This is by far the easiest way to obtain medical care if you hurt and unable to work due to your injuries and do not have health insurance.
