As the anchor of the Central Savannah River Area, Augusta is thriving with commerce and activity. With that, traffic abounds, and automobile accidents in Richmond County inevitably occur. Victims of car accidents in Richmond County often feel helpless because they are unfamiliar with their rights to fair compensation. Insurers take advantage of this and routinely offer less than the full value of their injuries. Without an experienced advocate, Richmond County accident victims are forced to accept whatever is offered without ever knowing if it is fair and just.
David Dekle’s years of experience can help you when you feel helpless in negotiating your Richmond County personal injury case. You should never do it alone. Insurance companies have paid professionals whose job performance is judged based on their ability to negotiate low settlements. Don’t you deserve a professional on your side that is not afraid to fight for fair compensation? Issues to consider in resolving your car wreck case include:
-What are the extent and permanency of my injuries?
You shouldn’t settle until you know if you have reached maximum medical improvement. David Dekle will insure that your claim is ripe for resolution. He can also advise you as to all elements of damages to which you are entitled when injured.
-Who is responsible for causing the accident?
A qualified personal injury attorney should review all of the facts to ensure that all avenues of recovery are considered. An at-fault party may have been within the scope of employment, or an automobile may have been defective. David Dekle has the experience to find sources of compensation where there has been negligence, and he understands where to look for additional insurance coverage when that at-fault party’s liability coverage isn’t enough.
-What different theories of recovery should be asserted?
Every car accident is different, and the legal theories of recovery can vary. In addition to negligence, there may be grounds to assert negligent entrustment, gross negligence, punitive damages, loss of consortium, family purpose doctrine, Dram Shop liability, etc.
