Obtaining a Compensation in Your Georgia Car Accident Case

Victims of car accidents have the right to seek recompense for their damages. The first route to take is generally to file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If the claim goes sour, e.g., fault is disputed, or the insurance company fails to provide a fair settlement offer, victims have the right to file a civil suit to pursue compensation.

Car Accident Attorney Jason Schultz Can Handle Any Complexity That Arises in Car Accident Cases

Each accident case is unique and must be approached in the way that suits that particular case best. When you decide to entrust your case to the Law Office of Jason R. Schultz, P.C., we will take the time to understand your injuries and the accident, and handle your case effectively and determinedly. Complexities often arise that can complicate matters in serious car accident cases, but in his 20+ years of legal experience, Attorney Schultz has developed a keen ability to handle any situation that comes up. Jason Schultz also practices as a wrongful death attorney for cases involving fatalities.

For example, if the other party tries to skirt liability by claiming you were at fault for the accident, we will argue that you were less than 50 percent at fault, and thus still eligible for compensation under Georgia’s comparative fault rules. If your accident was the result of the Department of Transportation or other government entity’s error, we carefully and quickly will navigate the claim and argue against government immunity. If the accident involved a commercial truck, we will rush to preserve the evidence for your case that carriers often destroy and begin collecting telltale trucker records that often can make or break the case.
