Even safe drivers can get into car accidents through no fault of their own. At Titus Smith Law we have extensive experience in representing injured people throughout Alpharetta and Johns Creek and specifically in Fulton, Forsyth, Cobb, Gwinnett, and DeKalb counties.
Car accidents are governed generally by the laws of negligence.
In Georgia, negligence is the failure of a person to act with ordinary diligence. The Georgia Civil Code defines ordinary diligence as the degree of care which is exercised by prudent persons under the same or similar circumstances. When a driver fails to exercise ordinary care and that failure causes a traffic accident to occur – they will generally be considered the “at fault” party because their driving was considered negligent under the law.
Sadly, car accidents can cause serious bodily injury. At Titus Smith Law we have the experience and expertise to handle all forms of automobile accidents from low speed to high speed collisions – and everything in between.
Being represented by an attorney when you get into a car accident is incredibly important. Often times an insurance company will attempt to deny a claim and shift some (or all) of the blame for the accident to you. They will also try and deny you fair compensation for your property damage claims and your bodily injury claims. If you have been injured in an automobile accident, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Titus Smith Law will aggressively push your case forward to maximize your recovery.
