That’s where we come in. As Augusta car accident lawyers, we represent people who have been unfairly injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence.

How We
Can Help

In cases where there are moderate to severe injuries — or if you have incurred any significant financial losses, such as missed wages due to absences from work — hiring an experienced car accident lawyer could make all the difference. Insurance companies want to make your claim go away as quickly as possible and for as little money as possible. 

By hiring an attorney, you send a message to them: you are serious about your claim, and you are demanding the money you deserve On average accident victims who hire a lawyer tend to recover more money than those who do not.

Most frequent questions and answers

The insurance company isn’t on your side. No matter what their TV commercials say, they are looking out for their own wallets, not yours.

Here’s what you need to know about settlement offers from insurance companies:

    • They may significantly undervalue your damages. Insurance companies are notorious for making “lowball” settlement offers. This is often part of a strategy to pressure the victim into taking less than they deserve in order to minimize the insurer’s financial exposure.
    • Once you accept the offer, you can never ask for more money. Accepting a settlement offer requires signing a binding “mutual release agreement,” which courts will generally uphold. Unfortunately, car crash victims will sometimes take the settlement and then realize later that they have more medical bills than they realized — or that their injuries are more serious than doctors suspected, or that something didn’t heal properly and now there are costly complications. For these reasons, it’s never a good idea to take a settlement offer too soon without consulting an attorney first.
    • Settlement offers may be better for the insurance company than they are for you. Insurance companies do not make settlement offers out of the goodness of their hearts. They do it through careful calculation, using formulas designed to save themselves money.

We understand that it can be tempting to take a settlement offer right away — it might feel like you’re “turning down money,” and that’s hard to do. But you may be able to recover even more money. That’s why it is important to talk with an Augusta auto accident lawyer first. Make sure your decision is a fully informed one.

There is a stubborn myth out there that car accident lawyers are unaffordable. On the contrary, hiring an Augusta auto accident lawyer at M. Austin Jackson Attorney at Law won’t cost you anything up front at all.

Our office represents car crash victims on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t charge you anything for our legal services unless we are ultimately successful in getting you money.

If we do succeed, our fee is only a percentage of your recovery. If we don’t succeed, you don’t have to pay us one penny — we take the risk of losing so that you don’t have to risk anything at all. This gives us an incentive to fight hard for our clients, and we think it shows: in the majority of our cases, we have gotten a fair settlement for our clients without having to go to court. (That said, we are prepared to take our clients’ cases to trial if that’s what true justice requires.)

Additionally, we offer an initial, no-obligation consultation at no cost whatsoever — even if you ultimately choose not to hire us. It’s your chance to get preliminary answers to your questions, as well as a general understanding of your rights under Georgia personal injury law.

In many cases, we are also able to advance any costs of litigation so that you don’t have to pay anything up front in order to pursue the justice you deserve.

No two car accidents are quite alike. Even relatively low-speed collisions can result in a variety of injuries or other damages, which may include:

When you schedule a free consultation with our law office, you can talk to an experienced Augusta car accident lawyer about your specific injuries and the damages to which you might be entitled.

While we cannot guarantee specific results in advance, we can help you understand how much money people in similar situations have recovered in the past — and how much money you might be able to recover.
