Frequently Asked Questions

8 Do’s After a Car Accident:

Find Out If Everyone is Okay.
If anyone is injured, call 911 to request an ambulance.

Call the Police.
Even if no one seems to be injured or you believe the damages are minor, you need to make an official report of the accident.

Exchange Information.
Write down names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and insurance information for everyone involved.  You should also get the make, model, year, color, and license plate number for all vehicles.

Get Witness Contact Information.
Write down their names and phone numbers in case you need to contact them to prove how the accident happened.

Be Careful What You Say.
Never apologize or admit fault for anything.  Statements you make at the scene may hurt your case later on if used against you.

Be Careful What You Sign.
If an insurance company gives you paperwork, review it first with a lawyer before you sign anything.Take Pictures.
This includes damage to all vehicles, as well as road conditions and traffic signs, and traffic signals.

Contact a Lawyer.
Accident victims often make the mistake of trusting insurance adjusters and speaking with them before consulting with qualified legal counsel.  An experienced car accident lawyer can help make all the difference for victims. 

Our practice knows how stressful it can be for the victims who have been involved in a car accident or sustained an injury from one, because it can be detrimental not only physically, but emotionally and financially as well. Trying to handle a car accident claim on your own will not only get you less than you deserve, but it can be more stressful than you think.

Remember that your interest and the interest of the insurance company (yes, even YOUR insurance company) are not the same.  Insurance companies are in the business of minimizing payouts to victims of accidents to maximize their own profits. Their adjusters are trained to settle your injury claim for the lowest amount possible.  Injury victims are often overwhelmed by medical bills and accident expenses, so they may accept an offer of settlement that is far lower than the value of their case. Taps & Gilormo can ensure that the insurance company actually pays the full value of the claim, taking all of your past and future losses into account.  

Don’t Let Insurance Companies Fool You
Insurance companies are only concerned with their bottom line, not your best interest or future care. Their teams of attorneys are protecting the company’s best financial interests.  That’s why it’s important to consult an attorney. 

If you have a skilled and aggressive personal injury lawyer working for you, you can maximize your chance of getting the compensation you deserve. Do not deal with the insurance company alone.  Call us at (404) 996-2458 for a FREE, no-risk case evaluation.

Your Car Repairs and Collision Coverage
After an accident, it’s important that you preserve the evidence and collect the information you need. Once you’ve gathered the other driver’s details, contact your insurance agent, and – if you’re injured – call a lawyer.

Your insurance company may have a few preferred shops with which they do business. You are free to take your car to any mechanic, but you may need to negotiate prices with your insurance company.

After the Accident

Damage to your car can range from minor scratches and dents to a total loss. With all the chaos and confusion of your accident, it can be difficult to know what to do with your car. There are a few options:

  • If your car is still drivable – Take it to a mechanic for inspection. There are a number of problems that could exist beyond visible damage. Take it to a professional that you trust to make sure it’s safe to continue driving.
  • If your car isn’t drivable – You should have it towed directly to the shop. Confirm the right shop with your insurance agent to avoid any complications. Make sure you’ve photographed before repairs are made.
  • If your car is totaled – You may choose to have it taken to a salvage yard, or your insurance company may recommend other options. Make sure to document the damage.


Rental Cars

You may have coverage on your insurance policy that qualifies you for a rental car up to a predetermined amount after your accident. However, some insurance companies won’t pay for your rental until your claim is settled, essentially reimbursing you for the cost. Make sure you discuss the details with your insurance agent and understand all the specifics of your policy.

 

Your medical bills are piling up.  Your car is wrecked, you’ve missed time from work due to your injuries, and your doctor just referred you for another expensive MRI.  A car accident can quickly become an expensive, overwhelming situation. With mounting bills and lost wages, it’s only natural to wonder about how much money you are entitled to receive.

Determining the value of a case is one of the harder questions for a plaintiff’s attorney to answer. There are many factors that are considered, including evidence of fault, disputes of liability, the severity of your injuries, and insurance limits, to mention a few.  We can help you understand what’s involved in determining your case’s value. It is a process that is built over time as your expenses become clear. Compensation can include payment of medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of ability to enjoy life, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity.  

Without speaking with you, we would never promise a specific amount of money for your car accident injuries, and we wouldn’t recommend trusting any law firm that does. What we can do is show you our track record of success and explain what’s important when determining how much your case is worth

Helping injury victims get the money they deserve is what we do best. We’ll fight to recover the maximum amount of money for your injuries, and we have the skill and experience to help you get money for unpaid medical bills, pain and suffering, future hospital visits, past or future surgeries, and lost time at work. 

The moment your accident happens, the clock begins to run against you.  There are time limits to filing your case, not to mention the fact that evidence can quickly disappear.  Contact us as soon as possible and we will get to work for you.

Accidents are, by nature, unexpected.  They’re even more unexpected when they cause serious injury. Along with having your daily life disrupted, you may be overwhelmed with medical costs, doctor’s appointments, missing work, and so much more. When an accident interrupts your life, it’s important to ask, “Do I have a case?”

Consulting with a lawyer is a good idea, and our experienced accident attorneys can help determine if you have a case for compensation. Here are just a few of the factors that can influence whether you have a case:

  • The extent of your injuries
  • Who was at fault
  • Where the accident happened
  • The type of treatment required
  • Whether surgery was indicated
  • Whether injuries were permanent
  • The details of insurance coverage


Because every situation is unique, it’s best to consult with one of our 
car accident lawyers to determine if you have a case.  Our experience shows that we can get you the results you need and deserve.

Our firm is dedicated to obtaining justice for clients from all walks of life, regardless of how large or small the matter. We handle cases of all sizes, from simple to complex. 

Insurance companies train adjusters to subtly influence you into making statements in order to limit the extent of their liability.  Any statements you make to an insurance adjuster, no matter how innocuous, may be used against you to undermine you claim. We recommend that you do not discuss the details of your injury or how it happened with anyone until you have consulted with a lawyer.  Signing documents or agreeing to any settlement before speaking with an attorney could prevent you from ever receiving full compensation for your injuries.
