What Are My Rights After a Truck Accident?

Representing Atlanta, Savannah, Columbus, Decatur, Augusta & nearby areas of Georgia

 

In the aftermath of a devastating truck accident in the Atlanta area, it's crucial to keep a clear head and remember your rights. Our Georgia truck accident lawyers urge you to politely but firmly assert these rights if they are challenged after your accident.

After an accident, you have the right to:

  • Document the accident with extensive photographs- don't disturb the scene or interfere with emergency personnel, but don't let someone tell you that you're not allowed to take photos

  • Resist any attempt to get you to sign away a potential legal claim. Insurance companies and trucking companies might make a settlement offer after an accident, insinuating that this is your only chance at receiving compensation. Don't sign anything without consulting with legal experts.

  • Finally, and on a related note, you have a right to speak with our truck accident lawyers about your legal options. There is often compensation available after an accident, and you need to be sure what forms of compensation you're capable of pursuing. That's only possible with the advice of learned legal counsel.

Our truck accident lawyers are ready to discuss your case at a free initial consultation. We're committed to protecting your rights and serving as your champions in this difficult time.
