Asked by user in Georgia.
Thank you for contacting our firm about your car wreck. I am sorry to hear about your situation. From your question, it sounds like you are concerned about the damage to your vehicle. In general, it might make sense to make a claim in Magistrate Court against the responsible driver for the damage done to your car, but there may be some other options for you to consider first.
It is common for there to be more than one insurance policy that applies to a wreck. For example, if the responsible driver was driving a car owned by someone else, the coverage on the car may apply or you may have uninsured motorist coverage on your own policy to help in this situation. Please give us a call so that we can learn more details about your specific situation to help determine if we can be of assistance to you or try to point you in the right direction.
Please understand that we do not represent you as an attorney/client relationship is not established with our firm unless a retainer agreement has been signed. Also, since there are strict time limitations involved in making legal claims through the court system, it is imperative that you contact an attorney right away for appropriate legal advice.
