If you are looking for a highly competent personal injury attorney, look no further. My son was injured, as a passenger, in a terrible car accident. After interviewing several attorneys in Atlanta, GA, Ted Spaulding impressed us as being very knowledgeable and passionate about making sure that those suffering from an injury received the best possible representation. He was not high pressure and informed us about how to obtain care for my son. Suffice to say, my son hired him. We have just started the process and Ted has been very attentive. We firmly believe that he will be aggressive in making sure that my Son receives the representation and care that he needs to recover.- SJH
“When a drunk driver hit my children, Ted and his associates were Amazing! They took care of us, kept us informed and handled all the little headaches that we had no idea what to do with so we could just focus on the lengthy rehabilitation of our son. Since then I’ve been in a wreck and injured and I felt very safe going back to Ted for help. He sits down talks to you, explains everything, and listens to you! And he’s very honest with you too. Calls it like it is! Love them very much! Have referred friends and family!”- Sherry A. Short, Alpharetta, GA

- Past and future medical bills from your serious injury

Can Accident Attorneys in Atlanta Help If the Other Driver Did Not Have Insurance?
Some car accidents are caused by drivers who lack the state’s mandatory car insurance. In other cases, injured car accident victims have damages that far exceed the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage. This is where it helps to have personal injury lawyers who know are well versed in car accident laws.
Fortunately, a car accident attorney can help when the responsible driver lacks insurance coverage to fully compensate the victim. Most car insurance policies provide uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage compensates the policyholder or a person insured under the policy when they are hurt by a driver who lacks any insurance or who has insufficient insurance coverage.
Our Atlanta Georgia, attorneys at law can help you secure uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) benefits by notifying your own insurer of the accident and injuries. The attorney can document your losses and meet your own insurer’s requirements for an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim.
How Long Do You Have to File a Car Accident Claim?
Be aware that you have a limited window of time after your car accident to file a lawsuit. This window of time is called the statute of limitations.
In Georgia, the statute of limitations on a car accident injury claim is two years from the date of the accident. Lawsuits for property damage must be filed within four years of an accident. If you do not file your lawsuit before those time periods, the court will likely permanently dismiss your lawsuit.
