Car Accidents Are Common, But At My Firm, Your Claim Is Personal

The frequency of car accidents in Georgia and across the nation is shocking. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that almost 1,800 people died in 2021 in Georgia motor vehicle crashes. Auto accidents may be an everyday event, but this does not mean that just any personal injury lawyer should handle your claim.

At my law firm, Patrick Flynn, Attorney at Law, I take a strategic approach to statewide representation. Under my direction, the staff at my Albany office can quickly send a team of investigators to your accident scene anywhere in Georgia after you contact me. A rapid response helps ensure that no evidence is lost, that no witnesses disappear and that I can begin working on developing your claim immediately.

Take Advantage Of My Experience To Get The Money You Need

When you are recovering from serious physical, mental or even emotional injuries that result from an accident caused by a negligent driver, the last thing that you should have to do is worry about money. Financial recovery is vital, but it is certainly not easy to navigate the claims process and negotiate with an insurance company that is actively trying to avoid paying.

The good news is that I have more than two decades of auto crash experience and a long list of successes. At my firm, I have the skills and the resources necessary to help maximize your claim. I am a skilled Albany car accident lawyer who will take care of the details for you.

What Damages Can You Recover After a Car Wreck?

I can help you recover compensation for the damages listed below as well as others resulting from an Albany car crash:

  • Current and future medical expenses: This involves more than just hospital bills. It can include rehabilitative treatments, wheelchairs or other assistive devices, necessary vehicle modifications, prosthetics, counseling and more.
  • Lost wages and future earning capacity: Temporary or permanent disabilities can prevent you from returning to your same job or career. Damages can compensate you for the value of that lost capacity.
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment: Permanent injuries may prevent you from being able to participate in activities you once loved, and a damage award can include compensation for this loss.

As your attorney, I will carry the legal burden for you during this time so that you can focus on your health and your family. Turn to me, attorney Patrick Flynn, for skillful representation in an auto or truck accident case. Once you get in touch with me and enlist my services as your Albany car accident lawyer, I will immediately begin investigating the accident and putting together the necessary evidence to ensure that your claim brings you the full amount of compensation owed.

Investigating Your Accident And Developing Your Claim

To strengthen your case, I may draw on a stable of the state’s best accident investigators and accident reconstruction experts. As your dedicated Albany car accident lawyer, I will assemble all relevant information, including witness accounts, physical evidence, photos, police work, drivers’ logs and other trucking records, and forensic reconstruction, if necessary.

It is particularly important to have a complete investigation as quickly as possible if you have been involved in a wreck with a truck or semi. Trucking companies go to great lengths to avoid liability, and evidence can and does disappear very quickly after a wreck.

From my local firm, I can act quickly to immediately build a case on your behalf before any evidence regarding an Albany car crash has a chance to be lost. I work closely with all the necessary experts in the area, expediting the investigation.

I handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, including rear-end collisions, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents as well as other types of accidents that have resulted in injury.

Frequently Asked Questions About Auto Accidents

A car crash injury can raise a lot of questions, so I like to give you a head start by answering the most common questions below. Bring me your own concerns, and I will personalize answers for you, according to your situation, using my experience as an accident attorney.

What should you do after a car accident?

If you are at the scene of an accident, take these steps immediately:

  • Check to see if anyone is injured and give any assistance necessary if you can do so safely (such as by stopping bleeding).
  • Move your car out of lanes of traffic, if possible.
  • Call 911 to get in touch with the police and/or other first responders such as emergency medical technicians (EMT) or the fire department. Get help for the injured and act to clear up the traffic obstruction.
  • Exchange contact information with another driver, if applicable, and take pictures of the wrecked vehicles as well as visible injuries.

Report basic information to the police and/or to your insurance company, but do not discuss details, including your opinions about fault, with anyone until you have spoken with an attorney. Your lawyer can help you start the processes of making a claim or responding to a claim.

Who pays your medical bills?

In Georgia, anyone who caused an accident is responsible for paying for their own and others’ injuries. However, your own health insurance will likely pay your medical bills. If it is later determined that someone else was at fault, your insurer may seek reimbursement through subrogation. Ask an attorney how to get your bills covered before an insurance payout, settlement or verdict.

What kinds of damages can you recover after a car accident?

As mentioned earlier on this page, you may be compensated for medical expenses, replacement of lost wages, replacement or repair of your car, pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life. The complete list will depend on many factors. To increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome, work closely with a personal injury attorney from the start.

How can a lawyer help after a car accident?

An attorney can inform you of your rights and speak to insurers and others on your behalf. They can also gather evidence, coordinate communications with medical personnel and others, and pursue the compensation you deserve while you focus on healing.

I am eager to hear your questions and provide the answers you need to move forward from the calamity of a crash to its resolution through insurance claims and other legal processes, if necessary.
