Warner Robins Auto Accident Attorney Helps the Injured Pursue Justice
Caring Georgia lawyer seeks compensation for clients injured in car wrecks
Auto accidents may be common but they can also be devastating, causing injuries that affect your mobility and your ability to earn a living now and in the future. At the Law Office of Christine M. Cruse, P.C., we dedicate ourselves to making things right again for you. Whether you’ve suffered injuries in a collision with a car, truck, motorcycle or bus, we guide you through the legal process while tenaciously pursuing justice and full, fair compensation from those who did you harm.
The effects of an auto accident
If you have been involved in an auto wreck in the Warner Robins area, the first thing you should do is get yourself and anyone else involved in the accident to safety. Call the police, and while you are waiting for them to come, exchange insurance and contact information with any other drivers. If possible, take photos of the accident scene. Be careful not to apologize or admit fault when speaking with police, insurance adjusters or anyone else involved in the accident. And then contact a skilled auto accident attorney as soon as possible. We help clients seek compensation from all possible sources — depending on the circumstances of your accident, responsible parties may include drivers, insurance companies, trucking companies, shipping companies or even mechanics.
Car crashes can cause a wide variety of injuries, ranging from scrapes and bruises to life-altering and debilitating trauma. Our personal injury attorney has assisted people involved in collisions and high-speed crashes to pursue compensation for:
- Back, neck and spine injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
In the most tragic cases, auto accidents take lives: 1,164 people were killed in Georgia traffic accidents in 2014 alone. If you have lost a family member through a motor vehicle collision, we can pursue justice and compensation through a wrongful death suit.
Understanding Georgia car insurance rules
Georgia requires all drivers to carry at least $25,000 in liability protection to compensate those hurt in an accident, up to $50,000 total per accident. The reality, however, is that some drivers do not carry any insurance, and many carry only the bare minimum. When you are in an accident with someone whose insurance coverage is not enough to pay for your injuries, seeking compensation can be complicated. It is recommended that all drivers purchase uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UIM), which allows them to recover compensation from their own insurance company in these cases. We help clients pursue compensation from all possible sources to offer them the best chance for an optimal result.
