18-Wheeler Accidents Can Benefit From Early Investigations

This information is essential to understand when approaching insurance companies. They are already bracing their case by investigating the accident early.

Liable Parties Owe You Fair Compensation
You deserve a fair settlement for injuries you did not cause. Georgia civil laws agree. Kam, Ebersbach & Lewis, P.C. has recovered the following awards on behalf of injury victims, including:
Economic damages often include medical costs, lost wages, future lost earnings, travel reimbursement, and prescription drug reimbursement.
Non-economic damages are harder to prove since you do not pay out of pocket. They include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and lost enjoyment of life.
Punitive damages are for gross acts of negligence designed to punish the defendant. However, courts rarely award them.
It is also worth noting that a statute of limitations applies to your case under OCGA § 9-3-33. You generally have up to two years, but shorter deadlines could apply depending upon the facts.
