Does my own car insurance pay for my injuries and suffering caused by a car accident?

Depending on your car insurance policy, you may be able to collect money from your own car insurance company. For example, if the driver who caused the car accident only had minimum coverage at the time of the car accident, you may be able to pursue a claim against your own insurance policy in addition to a claim against the other driver’s insurance policy through what is called underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage.

Depending on the policy language, your UIM coverage may pay you the amount of compensation exceeding the policy limits of the liability insurance covering the driver who caused the accident. For example, let’s say that the total amount of damages you are entitled to is $100,000.00. If the driver who caused the accident had liability insurance coverage of only $25,000.00, and you had a UIM coverage, you may be able to pursue the $75,000.00 from your own insurance company, depending on the policy language and limits.

If you have what is called medical payment coverage through your own insurance company, your insurance company may pay for at least a portion of your medical expenses regardless of fault.
Therefore, there may be more than one insurance policy you could pursue to maximize your compensation. Going after multiple insurance policies could get complicated, so it may help to consult with our Korean-speaking car accident lawyer Georgia residents trust.

What kind of damages can I recover if I am injured in a car accident?

If you have been injured in a car accident, you are probably wondering what types of compensation you could get. Under Georgia law, you could be entitled to both economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages are essentially compensation you could recover for monetary losses due to a car accident, such as past and future medical expenses, lost income, and other out-of-pocket costs. Non-economic damages are compensation you could recover for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life. “Diminished quality of life” could be associated with things like playing with your children, being able to exercise at the gym, and cooking your family dinner.

Who pays for my injuries if I am hurt as a passenger in a car driven by an Uber or Lyft driver?

The use of Uber, Lyft or other ride-sharing services has become more commonplace today. If you are injured as a passenger in a car driven by an Uber or Lyft driver in Georgia, who pays for your injuries and suffering? The answer would depend on several factors, including which driver(s) is at fault and the insurance policies involved. According to Uber and Lyft, they generally provide their drivers with insurance coverage for covered rides, so this insurance policy could be something you could go after.

Litigating car accident cases involving an Uber or Lyft driver is essentially similar to litigating other car accident cases: You would identify the applicable insurance policy, negotiate with the insurance companies, and go to trial if needed. Per Uber’s website, Uber maintains liability insurance coverage on behalf of Uber drivers in the amount of $100,000 per accident from the time the driver is online with Uber until the driver accepts a trip, and $1 million per accident while the driver is en route to pick up the rider or during the ride itself.

What is the medical payment provision in my car insurance policy?

In addition to other types of benefits, medical payments coverage is also generally available under car insurance policies in Georgia to cover at least some of your medical expenses. If you have this coverage, you could use this regardless of who is at fault for the car accident. Medical payments coverage is generally available at a relatively cheap price, and the coverage levels generally range from $1,000 to $50,000. This coverage could come in handy, especially where you have health insurance with a high deductible, you need a medical procedure that is very expensive, or you do not have health insurance. Your Korean-speaking car accident lawyer Georgia residents trust will write to your car insurance company under O.C.G.A. § 33-3-28 and then read your policy to figure out what you have.

What is a trial lawyer?

A trial lawyer is a lawyer who has a significant amount of trial and other courtroom experience and who is not afraid to take a car accident case to trial if settlement negotiations break down.
