Savannah Car Accident Lawyers Pursue Full Compensation

Experiences in building a compelling case for recovery

If you have suffered painful and disabling injuries in an auto accident, the actions you take can have a direct bearing on the monetary compensation you can recover. At Owens & Mulherin, our Savannah car accident lawyers take the stress off your shoulders by providing immediate and ongoing assistance. We handle all the legwork connected with your claim — gathering evidence, preparing necessary paperwork and negotiating with the insurance company — while you focus on getting better. If a lawsuit is necessary, you can rely on us to litigate aggressively to get you the compensation you deserve.

Causes and types of car accident cases

Our personal injury law firm has ample experience with a wide variety of car accidents, such as rear-end collisions, side-impact (T-bone) accidents, head-on collisions, rollover accidents and multi-vehicle pileups. We are adept at investigating and ascertaining the causes of automobile accidents, which can include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving and speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Poor road conditions
  • Mechanical failures

Proving fault is an essential element of each case. We consult with trustworthy accident reconstruction experts to determine who is responsible for the crash and we work tirelessly to hold the parties fully accountable.

Steps to take after an auto accident 

In the wake of an auto accident, you must first attend to your personal safety and that of your passengers. The law requires you to exchange identifying information with other drivers, but if you feel unsafe doing that, you should phone the police and wait for them to arrive. If possible, gather evidence of the accident scene and of damage to vehicles by taking cellphone photos. You should also call for medical assistance, both to safeguard your health and to document your legal claim later on. Call your insurance company to report the accident. Finally, call an accident lawyer as soon as possible so that they can begin working on your claim expeditiously. 

Capable representation in case of severe injury

Numerous severe injuries can result from car wrecks. We have helped clients recover fair compensation for devastating injuries, such as:

  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
  • Multiple, displaced fractures and crush injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis

You shouldn’t settle your claim until you have a full understanding of the extent of your injuries. We help you get the medical diagnosis and treatment you need, regardless of your health insurance status. You can count on us to connect you with orthopedic physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and other medical specialists who can gauge the full extent of your injuries and your prognosis for recovery. This analysis has direct correlation to the damages you can obtain.

What damages can you recover after an auto accident?

Our attorneys fight to get you the maximum compensation available 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. 
  • 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. They also 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.
  • 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.

Because we understand how car accident claims need to be handled, we can help you maximize the compensation you receive.

Experienced lawyers fight to get you a fair settlement

Insurance companies are in business to make big profits, which means they limit payouts on claims whenever possible. 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.
