Personal Injury Attorney in Alpharetta

I've been injured in an accident. How do I file a claim?

It can be difficult to take action after experiencing a traumatizing accident. At Kalka & Baer LLC, we understand the difficulty of your situation and we are here to help. The first steps you take after being injured are important and time-sensitive, so consult with our firm today for counsel and assistance. We have previous experience defending the kind of insurance company you are facing from the type of claim you need to file, which gives us an edge against the opposition.

  1. Retain a reliable and aggressive injury lawyer. No matter how complicated your case may be, it is always a smart idea to have a knowledgeable personal injury representative by your side. They can negotiate with your insurance provider, investigate the details of your case, look for evidence that may help in obtaining the highest amount of compensation, and work personally with you to make sure your rights are protected.
  2. Collect all relevant evidence and documentation related to your accident and consequent injuries. After obtaining the counsel of a skilled Alpharetta personal injury lawyer, this would be the next step. Witness statements, medical records, doctors' notes and mileage logs to and from appointments can all be used to verify the extent of your injuries and the damages that need to be compensated.
  3. Let you attorney negotiate with your insurance provider. Once these documents are all collected, your attorney can contact the insurance company of the liable party. Your lawyer should handle all correspondence and communication in order to avoid the possibility of incrimination, since the insurance company could skew your words and use them to your disadvantage. It may be possible for you to negotiate a fair settlement with assistance from your injury lawyer; however, if this is not possible, litigation may be necessary to obtain the payout you need.

It is important to note that all personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the time of injury. This is a Georgia state law known as the "statute of limitations" and can be found in O.G.C.A. § 9-3-33. If you wait too long to file your claim, it will be denied, so take action immediately by contacting Kalka & Baer LLC and scheduling an appointment. We would love to help you file a claim and fight for the compensation you deserve!
