Get Quick Answers to Commonly Asked Car Accident Questions

At Van Sant Law, LLC, we truly care for each of our clients. We want more than anything to help you understand your case, what it entails, and how an Alpharetta personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you get the compensation that you need. Read through some common
car accident questions below to get started before you consult one of our lawyers directly.

What is my personal injury case worth?

There are numerous types of damages that you can recover in a personal injury claim. This makes it difficult to know the exact value of any claim at the very beginning. Personal injury damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Emotional hardship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Reduced quality of life

Some of these damages – such as medical expenses, property damage, and lost income – have an exact monetary value. Others are noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering, and cannot be easily calculated. Only a seasoned personal injury lawyer will be able to maximize your compensation, ensuring that you receive the settlement or trial verdict that you deserve for your injuries and suffering.

What do you look for when deciding to take a case?

Van Sant Law, LLC focuses on quality instead of quantity. Instead of taking on as many cases as possible and trying to make our fees through volume, we only take a select number of cases and litigate them to their fullest value. Case criteria for car accidents include:

  • Visible damage to your car
  • Medical treatment
  • Fault / liability for the accident
  • How long ago the accident occurred

If your car is visibly damaged; you have received or need medical treatment; you were not at fault for your accident; and your accident occurred less than one year ago, then you should speak with us about your case.

Will you help me get money for my wrecked car?

One of the most important aspects of any car accident case is to recover compensation for property damage. If your car is seriously damaged or if it is totaled, you need a lawyer who can maximize the amount of compensation that you receive so that you are not seriously impacted, both financially and regarding your transportation. Auto repairs from an accident may entitle you to compensation for the diminished value of your vehicle. Additional compensation may be obtainable for aftermarket parts or original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts, as well.

Will you help me with finding and/or paying for medical treatment?

While our firm cannot pay your bills for you, we will fight tirelessly to win the settlement or trial verdict that you need in order to cover your bills. You need an attorney who is truly on your side, meaning that they are emotionally invested in your case and will give everything they have to win fair compensation. Van Sant Law, LLC builds strong attorney-client relationships with every client and will provide the service and representation that you need from start to finish.

What happens if the other driver doesn’t have enough insurance?

Dealing with insurance companies is one of the most important aspects of any car accident case. This is especially true if the other driver did not have enough insurance to cover the damages. Our firm understands uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) claims in Georgia and can work directly with your insurance to ensure that you receive the coverage that you deserve, whether through your insurance or from the other driver’s insurance company.
