     Many times after a car accident the first person you call is your own insurance carrier to report the accident?  Or sometimes, you wait, hoping the other person's insurance company will call you about your car.  Can you file with your own insurance company?  Should you file with your own insurance company?  Another question is does it matter?
     Read our FAQ answering this question.  We tell you that under some circumstances you should file on your own, especially if you are hurt.  There are other reasons, depending on who the insurance company is that the other driver uses. 
     Also what about a deductible?  Can you get a rental if you file on your own insurance?  Find out on our site at www.shanesmithlaw.com, written by Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Shane Smith.

     Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Shane Smith updates his case results page.  We wanted to provide a small showing of the types of cases we handle.  I frequently get calls from clients who need some advice about their case from an attorney.  Then they will ask me if I even handle a case of their size.  These are usually people who have been involved in a car accident, their was property damage somewhere between $1200 to $5000 to their vehicle, but they did not receive any broken bones.  These clients normally have "soft tissue" or back and neck strain injuries.  Treatment normally consists of a visit to the emergency room after the car accident, a follow up visit with the family doctor or Primary Care Physician (if you have health insurance) and then treatment with a chiropractor or a physical therapist. 
     We help many people get a fair and good result from the insurance companies with these types of injuries.  Sometimes these are harder cases to get a good result on than a big broken bone case.  I once heard a great lawyer I respected say - its easy to get a million dollar case settled, just have a 2 million dollar case. 
     He was indicating that many lawyers can ruin a great big case and think they are helping their clients.  We take cases both large and small where we think we can help someone get a better result than without us.  Some of these cases are large, some aren't.  What is important is that we helped someone be better off than they would have been without us. 
     I do not post numbers after every case.  Ask me to tell you about my large cases and I will.  However, every case is different, just as every person is different.  We pride ourselves on helping our clients, those with big cases, and those with smaller cases.  Go to my website to see just a few of the people we helped.

     Daily commute gets longer for most people in Atlanta this Wednesday as multi car accidents delay and shut down the down town connector and spaghetti junction.  DeKalb County had a fatal car wreck near Spaghetti Junction shutting down I-85 for almost 45 minutes just before 8 am.  Cobb County boasted a six car wreck stopping I-75 for about an hour before 8 am.  Henry County had a seven car collision slowing down I-75 until 9 am.  This just helps prove that Atlanta drivers deal with one of the worst commutes in the United States.  More details at my website or the AJC.
