Why is it important that I move quickly after an accident?

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

 

At Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, PC, we always urge the victims of a motor vehicle accident in the Atlanta area to move forward with legal action as quickly as possible. Our accident attorneys do this not because we underestimate how difficult your life has become, but because it's absolutely vital for your chances of success.

We know you're dealing with the physical and emotional trauma of your accident. But putting off legal action can result in you losing out on a chance at pursuing justice and compensation.

Why? We urge you to move quickly because:

  • Evidence has an expiration date. Witnesses' memories fade. Physical evidence degrades. And in truck accident cases, vital GPA data can be wiped.

  • A professional investigation relies upon fresh memories and evidence.

  • The statute of limitations for a personal injury case in Georgia is two years

Obviously your first priority is to protect your health. Seek medical attention and do everything your doctor advises you to do. After your health stabilizes, however, you should not delay in speaking with our accident attorneys.

If you've been hurt in the Atlanta, Georgia area and you want to speak with our accident attorneys about your claim, please call Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, PC today at 404-760-7400 or contact us online for a free consultation.
