Injury Attorneys Assisting Victims File Insurance Claims across Georgia

After an accident, one of the first actions your attorney should perform is to investigate sources of insurance coverage for your injury compensation. Typically, the first place your attorney looks is to the other driver. Your attorney will send a request to the insurance company representing the other driver, who will be required by law to respond with the available coverage. Once coverage information has been obtained, your attorney can compare that information against your accident damages. If your damages exceed the other drivers’ coverage, then your attorney will probably need to look for additional ways to secure the compensation you need. This may include inquiring about other defendants’ coverage (such as an employer), or researching the coverage you possess as part of an automobile or umbrella policy.

Stacking Insurance Policies

A sort of “last resort” that your attorney can employ in seeking sources of insurance coverage is that of “stacking” multiple insurance policies. The laws that govern the stacking of policies are very complex, and if you have injuries that will exceed $25,000 in medical costs, you need to be sure that your attorney is knowledgeable about insurance law.
