Savannah Car Accident Attorneys Pursue Full Compensation

The experience you need to build a compelling case for recovery

After an auto accident, while you are dealing with painful and disabling injuries, you’ll probably hear from an insurance company offering you a quick settlement. But, how can you know if the offer reflects the full value of your claim? At Owens & Mulherin Injury Lawyers, we take every car accident seriously, and we work hard to help our clients get the compensation they deserve. When you call us, our Savannah car accident lawyers take the stress of the accident off your shoulders by going above and beyond what you might expect from a law firm. We provide immediate assistance by getting you a rental vehicle and either getting your car repaired or obtaining fair market value for your car if it is totaled. Our firm does not take a fee from your property damage recovery, unless we have to file a lawsuit to resolve that issue. We can also help you get appropriate medical care, whether you are uninsured or have insurance which many doctors will not accept, such as Medicaid, workers compensation, or Tri-Care. We have network of orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, and neurosurgeons to examine and treat you, including surgery if necessary, based on an agreement that Owens & Mulherin will pay them after your personal injury claim is resolved. You don’t even have to worry about coming into our office; we will happily come to you if you cannot visit us. We handle all the legwork connected with your claim — gathering evidence, filling out paperwork and negotiating with the insurance company — while you focus on getting better. If, after all this, a lawsuit is necessary to obtain a just result, you can rely on our accomplished attorneys to litigate aggressively on your behalf.

Auto accident trends in Georgia

Serious and fatal auto accidents have been on the rise in Chatham County since 2012. And although the Georgia Department of Transportation has pledged to reduce traffic fatalities by at least 41 each year, the results of the last decade have been very disappointing. In 2015, there were 1,432 deaths on Georgia roads, followed by 1,561 in 2016 and 1,549 in 2017. Victims are not only passenger car occupants; fatalities for motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists have contributed to the spike in overall deaths. Alcohol and speeding are two major factors in serious auto accidents, and fatal accidents related to those factors are also on the rise.

What can you get compensation for after an auto accident?

An auto accident can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially. Owens & Mulherin fights to get you the maximum compensation for:

  • Medical bills — You want the best treatment after an accident, but receiving the care you need often carries a big price tag. Everything from the ambulance ride and emergency surgery to overnight hospital stays and physical rehabilitation is tallied and billed to you. Those costs can quickly add up to a sum you simply can’t pay without facing financial hardship.
  • Lost wages — You depend on your paychecks to provide for your family. But a car accident may keep you out of work for weeks, months or even years. We include an estimate of lost future earnings in your claim so you can be secure in the future.
  • Pain and suffering — Many auto accident victims endure debilitating pain that makes it difficult or impossible to enjoy hobbies, time with family or intimacy with a spouse. Others may suffer from severe anxiety, depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder. Disfiguring scars can negatively affect your quality of life, and psychological wounds can continue to haunt you after your physical wounds have healed.
  • Property damage — We make sure that expenses like vehicle repairs, rental car fees and even a new vehicle purchase are included in your claim, and we don’t charge a fee for any property damage recovery.

You shouldn’t settle your claim until you have a full understanding of the extent of your injuries. We help you get the medical treatment you deserve, regardless of your health insurance status. You can count on us to connect you with orthopedic physicians, MRIs, physical therapy and surgery when we take on your claim. Because we understand how car accident claims need to be handled, we can help you maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries.

Experienced lawyers fight to get you a fair settlement

Insurance companies are in business to make big profits, not to pay out settlements to injury victims. They hire teams of adjusters who work around the clock to find ways to reduce or deny fair settlement offers to people hurt in auto accidents. Our attorneys began their careers working for insurance companies, and that helps us stay one step ahead of them.

When we take on your claim, you can count on us to fight for the maximum amount of compensation by:

  • Collecting evidence that proves you weren’t at fault
  • Locating and contacting witnesses
  • Obtaining the police report, your medical records and your medical bills to show that the accident caused your injuries
  • Calculating your past, current and future medical bills
  • Receiving statements from your doctors or employer indicating that your injuries prevent you from returning to work
  • Sending a demand letter to the insurance company for exactly how much you’re owed
  • Negotiating for the money you deserve if the insurance company offers a lowball settlement
  • Filing suit and pursuing your claim if the insurance company refuses a reasonable settlement

You can trust our experience and our track record for success. For almost 20 years, we have delivered positive results for clients in Coastal Georgia.
