highway car accidentProving another driver was at fault for a car accident is a difficult task to handle by yourself.

The Nye Law Group's skilled Savannah auto accident attorneys have the experience needed to help you recover compensation and hold the other driver liable for the damage he or she caused. 

Through a free, no obligation consultation, we will review your claim and the events that occurred before your auto accident to determine who was at fault and if you are entitled damages for your injury. 

How Can a Car Accident Attorney Help Me?

A skilled attorney can provide compelling reasons why the other driver was at fault by analyzing and applying relevant traffic laws and statutes to show that the other driver violated the law.

For example, if your accident occurred while cars were merging, your attorney may be able to apply a statute about when you have the right of way in Georgia.

Applying traffic laws can be relatively easy with certain types of accidents, including:

  • Rear-End Accidents: One of the most basic rules of the road is that drivers must leave enough space between their car and cars in front of them so they can stop without hitting the cars in front of them. That is why drivers of cars that were rear-ended will almost never be held liable for the crash.
  • Left-Turn Accidents: In most cases, the driver making the left turn will be held liable because cars coming straight into the intersection have the right of way. However, you could be at fault if you were speeding or running a red light.

Our attorneys will accurately represent your claim to show how your car accident injury has affected your life. We will work to show the othe driver was at fault by obtaining evidence to build a case on your behalf.

Another way your attorney can help establish fault in an accident is by assisting you with filing a police report if one was not filed after the accident.

If a report was filed, your attorney can acquire and review it to make sure the facts are correct. The report may note who was at fault for the accident or if a traffic violation was committed.

These could be invaluable pieces of evidence to bolster the argument that the accident was not your fault. Also, insurance companies may drag their feet about issuing car accident liability reports unless they have a police report.
