How much liability auto insurance should I have?
Anyone driving in Georgia is subject to certain minimum insurance requirements, including the following liability coverage:
- At least $25,000 per person for bodily injury
- At least $50,000 per accident for bodily injury to two or more people
- At least $25,000 for property damage
How much comprehensive coverage of auto insurance should I have?
Comprehensive coverage protects against other losses associated with your vehicle, such as fire, theft, vandalism, and many other risks. The degree of risk you experience in your normal life, combined with the value of your vehicle and other considerations, determines how much comprehensive coverage you should carry.
Why are whiplash injuries common in car accidents?
Whiplash is a common car accident injury because a collision causes a sudden movement that whips the head rapidly from back to front, or from side to side. These injuries can take months to heal, or even cause permanent damage. Our attorneys can intervene to ensure an Atlanta whiplash injury claim is treated fairly by insurance companies.
Why do car accident settlements vary?
Car accident settlements can vary for a variety of reasons, including the following:
- The costs associated with the injury exceed the limits of the insurance policy.
- Common insurance practice is to initially present a low settlement offer which, if signed by the claimant, becomes final.
- Claimants make errors when filing claims,such as admitting fault or minimizing the extent of their injuries.
How do I know if I have enough auto insurance?
The right coverage for you is based on many factors, including the value of your vehicle and the risks you typically undertake. For example, if your job regularly takes you to high-traffic or high-crime areas, you might need more insurance.
