DID YOU KNOW that uninsured motorist insurance can come to your rescue if the at-fault driver lacks sufficient coverage?

Many are unaware of this vital protection, which can be a financial lifeline in times of need. However, it’s essential to note that the law in Georgia imposes limits on how much of this coverage you can access under certain circumstances. Plus, uninsured motorist insurance policies often have varying notification time limits, depending on their specific terms and conditions. This means that some car accident victims may find themselves facing unexpected out-of-pocket expenses for medical bills or property damage if they miss these deadlines. Understanding the intricacies of your insurance coverage is paramount, and our dedicated attorneys at Farrar, Hennesy and Tanner are ready to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Auto Accident Questions

How long do I have to file a claim after an auto accident?

Injury claims must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. However, if you have a severe injury, we recommend you meet with one of our attorneys as soon as possible so that your case can be properly evaluated.

How long does it typically take to resolve a personal injury or workers' compensation case?

The time it takes to resolve a personal injury or workers' compensation case in Georgia can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the extent of injuries, and whether settlement negotiations or litigation is involved. Generally, straightforward cases may be resolved within several months to a year, while more complex cases may take one to three years or longer to reach a resolution. Working closely with an experienced attorney can help expedite the process and ensure your case is handled efficiently.

If I was not at fault for the accident, why do I need to notify my insurance company?

It is important to inform your insurance company as soon as possible after the accident, as the person at fault may be uninsured or underinsured. You may need to make a claim against your own insurance as well as the at-fault party's insurance. Most insurance companies require "notice of a claim", and failure to give notice could lead to your claim being denied.

Does the insurance company pay for a rental car if mine is damaged in an accident?

Yes, you are entitled to compensation for the loss of use of your vehicle while it is being repaired after an accident. Most insurance companies will arrange a rental car that can be used throughout the duration of repairs. If your insurer denies such a request, our attorneys can step in and negotiate a rental for you.

Can I use my health insurance to pay my medical bills related to my accident?

Yes. However, some health insurance policies require reimbursement for any bills caused by the negligence of a third party. It is important to consult with an attorney to help you navigate complex insurance claims issues.

What kinds of damages can I recover due to my auto accident?

You can generally recover for property damage, medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of consortium. Other damages could be recovered, depending on the specifics of your case.

My case started off with Mr. Farrar and when he retired, Matt Hennesey took over. They fought for my case for over 4 years and Matt stuck with it. They were really good to me and still are.

Mr. Matt Hennesy, I have to say, is one of the best lawyers you will ever have. Mr. Hennesy went above and beyond to make sure me and my wife were taken care of. I could never be grateful enough for what he did for us. And their office staff is just as caring. Thank you so much.
