In a 2016 study, Georgia ranked number four out of states with the highest number of traffic fatalities from car accidents. Today, Georgia, and especially Atlanta, continue to experience congested interstates, busy roads, and a large number of car accidents. As a “comparative fault” state, Georgia requires that after a car accident, blame must be assigned to the at-fault parties. Comparative fault (or comparative negligence) means that a percentage of blame is assigned to each driver after an accident. In some cases, one driver holds 100% of the blame, while in other cases each driver receives a percentage of the fault for their individual recklessness. Only when one driver is found to be less than 50% at fault are they eligible to receive compensation for their injuries and property damage.
So how difficult is it to determine fault after a car accident? In most cases, it is very difficult, which is why you need an experienced car accident lawyer on your side to fight for the compensation that you deserve. Immediately after an accident, insurance companies begin working to deter fault from their client in an attempt to reduce the amount of money they have to pay you. This means that even if you are not at fault, insurance companies may claim you have a certain amount of fault in order to pay you less than you deserve. The fight against these insurance companies can be expensive, complicated, and likely unsuccessful if you’re fighting them by yourself.
That’s why you need an attorney like Anita Lamar on your side.
While the insurance companies are working to reduce their clients’ fault and their payout costs, Attorney Anita Lamar fights against them to ensure that her clients receive the full and fair compensation they deserve for injuries and property damages as a result of a crash. Fighting against the big insurance companies is futile without an understanding, experienced attorney by your side. Contact Attorney Anita Lamar today for a car accident lawyer in Atlanta, GA that you can trust.
More than legal service

Determining who caused a car accident can be a tricky process. What most people don’t understand is that who actually caused the accident can often be different from who is legally at fault for the accident. For example, if a car swerves quickly across four lanes of traffic, causing multiple cars to suddenly brake and be hit by the car behind them, the car who swerved may not be considered at fault for the accident. The car driving behind who hit the car in front of them might be found partially at fault. A car accident may also be at the fault of an auto parts manufacturer whose faulty auto parts repair caused a car to be involved in an accident. A bar owner may face fault in a drunk driving case, or a company may face fault if one of their company cars is involved. To support your claim regarding fault in an accident, you need to begin collecting evidence immediately and contact Atlanta car accident lawyer Anita Lamar to defend you in the process.
You should always file a police report immediately following an accident. A police report is crucial to receiving compensation from the negligent driver’s insurance company. Even if the accident is minor, it is still important to file an official report in case you experience a long-term injury such as internal bleeding or a spinal cord injury. The police report will provide you with key information about the involved drivers, the condition of the accident, and witness accounts regarding the cause of the accident, which can all be used to help your case later on.
A catastrophic injury is considered to be an injury that involves a loss of capacity, whether it be physical or mental. For example, traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, or paralysis caused by a car accident are considered catastrophic injuries. In the case that another driver’s negligence caused your catastrophic injury, you may be able to file a personal injury legal claim to receive compensation for both the financial costs endured, including future medical costs, and the pain and suffering caused by the injury. Working with a personal injury lawyer, such as Attorney Anita Lamar, is crucial to ensuring that you receive full and fair compensation.
Every car accident claim is different and the compensation amount depends on the injury and property damage involved in the accident as well as the determination of fault for the accident. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Atlanta, GA, you may be entitled to compensation to cover the following:

Filing an insurance claim after a car accident in Atlanta can be a complicated process, so be sure to contact Lamar Law Office to understand what you need to file the claim in order to receive full compensation. To file a claim successfully, you first need to make sure that you have filed a police report, and that you have all of the information of the involved drivers, ideally. Lamar Law Office will contact your insurance company and speak with a claims specialist. The insurance claims professional would then request us to form a claim based on your injuries and car damage. Do not speak to insurance companies alone, as what you say can and will be used against you! Lamar Law Office knows how to deal with insurance companies, and we can help speed the process along and fight on your behalf for the full compensation you deserve.
Legally in the state of Georgia, you have two years from the date of the car accident to file a personal injury claim and four years to file a property damage claim. However, it is not advised that you wait this long to file a claim after a car accident. Over time, the details of the accident can become blurred, witnesses can be harder to find, and the insurance companies may claim that your injuries and damages are not serious because you waited so long to file a claim. We recommend you contact our office immediately after a car accident in order to take legal steps quickly.
The legal process after a car accident varies from case to case, but can typically take up to a year from start to finish if the case is taken to trial. For the majority of car accident cases, a settlement is agreed on before heading to trial which will likely make the legal process shorter. If the case is complicated and appealed during the trial, the legal process may last for more than a year. Attorney Lamar is sensitive to the fact that many people prefer to put their accident behind them and move on with life. That’s why our office is dedicated to communicating with our clients about their case and resolving cases in a timely manner, all while ensuring that we obtain the compensation our clients deserve.
The best way to deal with insurance companies is with Attorney Lamar at your side. The reality is that insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible, and they know the legal system well because they work with claims every day. If you don’t have experience filing a car accident claim, you are more likely to accept a low settlement or not understand your rights to negotiations. Lamar Law Office has experience fighting against the big insurance companies to help clients file car accident claims successfully. When dealing with insurance companies, have the team at Lamar Law Office on your side.
