Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys Car Accidents
Atlanta is the 10th Most Dangerous Driving City in the U.S.
In March 2023, U.S. News & World Report created a list of the most dangerous cities in America for driving, and Atlanta was ranked #10. This isn’t surprising… anybody who lives in Atlanta knows that driving in our beautiful city can be a real nightmare. Even though 49% of people surveyed nationwide said they drive less now than before the COVID-19 pandemic, reported traffic fatalities increased by about 19% – from 36,096 in 2019 to 42,915 in 2021, according to a study by TRIP (The Road Information Program).
Because car accidents make up the bulk of personal injury claims, they’re the bread and butter of inexperienced lawyers eager to cash in on a quick settlement. Don’t let that happen to you. Even small car accidents can have far-reaching health implications for victims and medical bills can keep coming even after the settlement is signed.
Wood Craig Miller takes a different approach. Our goal is to work closely with our clients, giving them expert legal advice and allowing them to make informed decisions. Our reputation dictates that we make a fair or generous settlement for the optimal recovery, or go to court to fight it out. We believe a well-informed client makes the best decisions.

What You Should Do After a Car Accident
Most drivers have no idea that the actions and statements they make after an accident can make or break lawsuits. In Georgia, the police and insurance companies will assign “fault” for the accident, and the responsible party is liable for some or all of the costs.
Common mistakes by drivers after accidents:
Leaving the scene of the accident
Failure to document everything
Declining medical treatment
Can I File A Car Accident Claim After the Insurance Pays?
In nearly every instance, once you sign a settlement agreement, it’s final, and even if you discover that you have more severe injuries, it’s difficult to recover more compensation. There’s also a two-year statute of limitations in Georgia for filing claims. That’s why you should always talk to an experienced lawyer before you sign any agreement.
If you have questions, call us today. We’re always happy to help, and we’re always on your side.
