What can a car accident lawyer do for you?
Being injured in a car accident can be stressful and overwhelming. To make matters worse, the insurance company is not concerned with the medical treatment that you need. Even though you are the victim in a car accident, the insurance company will try to pressure you into quickly settling your case for a fraction of the amount you actually deserve. You should never handle your personal injury case alone. You need a car accident lawyer who will deal with the insurance company for you allowing you to focus on recovering from your injuries.
As an injury victim, you are entitled to demand the compensation that you deserve from the negligent party’s insurance company. Many injury lawyers give up if the insurance company refuses to pay you the amount you deserve. Not Jason. If the insurance company refuses to pay a victim what they deserve, we always file a lawsuit to continue your fight for justice. We will even take your case to trial if that is what it takes for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
All accident victims are entitled to compensation. The only way that you make sure you receive the maximum compensation is to hire an experienced car accident lawyer.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
If you were injured in an accident, you are likely concerned with how you are going pay your medical bills. The last thing you need is another out of pocket expense. Many people think that they cannot afford a personal injury lawyer – but this is not true!
An expert personal injury lawyer is the best investment that you can make if you were injured in a car accident. Car accident lawyers are paid on what is called a contingency fee. This means that if we do not win your case, we do not get paid. Better yet, you never have to pay any money out of your pocket. An injury lawyer will take a predetermined portion of the settlement as payment for their services.
Be careful. Not all injury lawyers take the same percentage. The large law firms that spend tens of thousands of dollars a month to be on billboards and television. As as result, they almost always charge a higher percentage than other personal injury law firms. They also, tend settle you case for less because their focus is on quantity of cases, not the quality of their legal representation. Jason charges the lowest standard rate of any personal injury attorney so you can be confident that you will receive the maximum compensation for your injury.
Importantly, attorney Jason McLendon has a guarantee that he will never receive more money from a settlement than a client. After all, you were injured. You deserve to be compensated. A shocking number of injury lawyers do not follow this practice and will regularly take more money from your case than you will ever receive.

What should I do after being injured in an accident?
There are a few important steps that you should take after being injured in an accident.
- Call the police. Too often latinos are hesitant to call the police to report an accident because they do not have status in the country. But, it is very important that you call the police to report your accident. It is almost always easier to get substantial compensation for an accident victim once the police create a report.
- Tell the police you are injured. If you experience pain, you should tell the police. If you do not, they will not on the police report that you are not injured and this may hurt your personal injury claim.
- Never say “I’m sorry.” If you are injured in a car accident, you never want to tell anyone involved that you are “sorry.” Although, this may seem like the polite think to do, it can be interpreted as an admission of fault. The best practice is to not speak with anyone involved in an accident, other than the police.
Gather witness information. If someone saw the car accident that caused your injuries, get their name and contact information.
- Take pictures. It is important that you document the damage to the vehicles and any visible visible injuries that you have. The phrase “a picture is work a thousand words” is true. Photographs almost always help your injury case.
- Go to the hospital. Even if you are worried that you cannot afford medical treatment, go to the hospital to make sure that you are not suffering from serious injuries.
- Never give a recorded statement. The insurance company will contact you and request that you provide a recorded statement. You should never do this without first speaking with an injury lawyer.
- Contact a Georgia personal injury lawyer to discuss the facts of your injury claim and how we can assist.
