Georgia Laws Benefit Insurance Companies

The law in the State of Georgia is such that the insurance company only has to pay you at the settlement of your case. This means that if you are the victim of a car accident or drunken driver and are seeking medical attention or missing time at work, the insurance company doesn’t have to pay you while it's going on. How does this benefit the insurance companies? Many people who become victims of these kinds of accidents don’t have the money to miss extended time at work or visit multiple doctors. If you can’t afford it, you may not be able to obtain the proper medical care. This can result in victims rushing to settlement, often for less than what they deserve. Getting proper medical care needs to be the first priority. If you feel that this law could affect you, speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. We will assess your case and work together to come to a plan of action that is right for you. If you would like more information, please call us today at (980) 246-2656.
