If you’ve been injured in a car wreck, seek medical treatment. Once you have been seen and know what treatment you will need, an attorney can give you advice about contacting the insurance company of the person who caused the accident.
You can handle property damage claims yourself without too much stress, but Michael Lemon can help you reach a satisfactory resolution for your vehicle’s damages.

Medical records that show how you were injured and treated are your best evidence in a personal injury claim.
While you’re being treated for your injuries, you are responsible for your medical bills. That means it’s crucial to keep and organize all of your medical bills—especially for radiology, emergency room doctors, and ambulance rides—so that you have a full total of what you spent when it’s time to resolve the claim.
Under Georgia law, a person has two years from the date of the accident in which to file a personal injury lawsuit. It is vital to keep this in mind if you are being treated for injuries and not represented by an attorney, but might like an attorney’s help in the future to resolve your claim.
We know it can be intimidating to call an attorney and ask for help. Here are some questions to help you organize your thoughts when you call our office to discuss your claim:
Are you represented by another attorney? It’s unethical for us to consult with you if you already have representation for your claim. Instead, we encourage you to have a conversation with your current attorney to resolve any issues you may be having.
Were you injured? What caused your injury? Was this incident reported to the police? And do you have a copy of that report?
What is the date and location of the accident? What sort of weather conditions did the accident occur in?
Did you seek any medical treatment following the accident? What are your injuries? Have you been treated by a doctor? What sort of diagnosis were you given? What future treatments did the doctor recommend? Do you have copies of your medical bills?
Have you missed time from work? If you have write down how much time you’ve missed.
Were there witnesses to the accident? Do you have their contact information?
Have you been contacted by an insurance company? Have you given a recorded statement? If you do speak with an insurance adjuster, make sure you get their name, a claim number if they have one, and their direct phone number. Their email address and fax number would also be helpful. If you do hire an attorney, this information will make it much easier to begin working on your claim.
Was there property damage? Have you gotten an estimate on the damage? Do you have pictures of the damage?
Do you have your own questions? Write them down.
Every claim has a story, and the details and emotions can feel overwhelming when you’re trying to get help. Being prepared to talk to an attorney saves you time and helps us learn everything we need to begin helping you.
