Dedicated Car Accident Lawyer in Augusta, GA Seeks Justice for Victims
Seasoned attorney helps individuals recover after an auto accident
Getting over the physical and emotional effects of a car accident can be very difficult. If you add serous financial hardship to the mix, the situation can be overwhelming. Jeffrey S. Bowman in Augusta has 30 years of experience battling to get vehicle collision victims the reimbursement they need to cover medical costs, lost wages and other expenses. My firm takes on negligent drivers in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits to hold them responsible for the harm they do.
Knowledgeable firm advises on damages available to people hurt in crashes
Georgia uses a traditional fault-based auto insurance system, so if another driver is responsible for your accident, you can seek legal relief against them without having to claim against your own insurer. This means that hiring a proven litigator is particularly important. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car wreck, I’ll advise you on the legal standards that apply to your situation, including:
- Available damages —. My firm strives to recover funds to pay for the medical bills and ancillary expenses associated with broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, organ damage and other types of bodily harm resulting from vehicle collisions. If your accident resulted in a permanent disability or disfigurement, I will outline what type of compensation is appropriate along with other available damages, such as reimbursement for lost income and compensation for pain and suffering.
- Collisions with uninsured motorists — Georgia law does not require auto policyholders to purchase uninsured motorist coverage, but many choose this option in case they are struck by a driver who lacks sufficient insurance. If you did purchase UIM protection, I can assist in a claim you make to your carrier. In situations where an accident victim did not opt for that protection, my firm will pursue reimbursement personally from the liable motorist.
- Comparative negligence — After a car accident, it’s not uncommon for both drivers to blame each other for the collision. I am an accomplished litigator who makes formidable arguments regarding fault, but it’s important to remember that you can recover damages even if you’re held to be partially responsible for the crash. As long as your share of the fault is less than 50 percent, you can win at trial, though the award would be reduced by the share of responsibility allocated to you.
Through strong trial advocacy and skillful settlement negotiation, my firm gives Georgia auto accident victims the representation they deserve after suffering a serious injury.
