Pursue What You Deserve After A Car Accident Changes Your Life
The losses you may sustain following a car accident injury can be detrimental to your financial well-being. Between medical expenses and lost wages, you may find yourself struggling to make ends meet for a long time. At-fault parties have a responsibility to make up for their negligence by compensating victims of the accident, and a lawyer can help you seek what you need to get back on your feet.
At Ward & Spires, LLC, in Augusta, our car accident attorneys have more than 45 years of combined experience representing clients across several areas of the law. We know what it takes to build an efficient and successful case in pursuit of your financial recovery. We represent clients in and out of court, in negotiations and in a trial if necessary.
Their Fault, Your Recovery
In personal injury cases, the plaintiff must prove the defendant was negligent and that their negligence caused the car accident. It is often the case that more than one party is responsible for an auto accident. You may be wondering whether you can still collect compensation if the court finds you partially at fault. Note that Georgia is a contributory negligence state.
What does contributory negligence mean for you? Well, it means if you are partially at fault you may still recover damages in the event of a successful lawsuit. Your recovery may be prevented only if the court finds you 50% or more at fault for the accident.
Our lawyers will examine all relevant evidence and work to provide your case with the best possible argument.
We also assist families who have suffered a death in a car accident.
