Q
I was injured in an Atlanta car accident. My car sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene. Who pays my storage and towing costs?

A

If your car was disabled by a Georgia car crash, the police officer at the scene may order that the vehicle be towed to a storage yard where it can be evaluated by insurance agents and your Atlanta auto injury attorney. In general, the insurance company for the driver who was at fault will pay towing and storage costs after an Atlanta auto accident. However, if the fees are excessive or there is doubt about who is at fault, the insurance company may deny you compensation.
