Gwinnett County Car Accident Attorney
When you are in a car crash, dealing with the shock of the situation and tending to your injuries will be your first points of concern. After you have reported the accident to the authorities and sought medical attention, you can then start looking into filing a claim or lawsuit to recover your damages. This can be a long and complex process in some cases. For help, call Gwinnett County car accident attorney John Morrison to review your options – particularly if your accident was serious.
How do I seek compensation for my injuries?
If you were in an accident and you were at fault, you will need to turn to your own insurance company to recover damages. Your liability coverage will pay for damages that other parties sustained in the accident and if you carry medical payments coverage and collision coverage, your insurer will pay for your medical bills and property damage up to your policy’s limit.
However, if someone else was at fault, you can file a claim against their insurance company or file a lawsuit to recover damages. In order to pursue a car accident liability claim or suit, you must be able to show that the other party’s negligence caused your accident. You can use various types of evidence to accomplish this such as the police report, photos, video, and witness testimonies.
You will also need to be able to provide a detailed list and proof of all of your accident-related injuries and damages. Be as thorough as possible. Attorney John Morrison can help you collect everything you need to prove your damages and ensure your claim is calculated correctly.
What types of car accident cases do I need an attorney for?

How do I proceed with my car accident case?
After an accident, start collecting all the pertinent documents and information to support your claim.
