After a Georgia Personal Injury, Attorney Sheryl Burke Can Help with Car Insurance Claims (Part B)

Georgia’s new “add on” car insurance is in place to help you in the event that you are hit by an uninsured driver. If you choose not to include this coverage, you could be stuck with medical expenses and car repair bills after an accident. Just because a state requires car insurance doesn’t mean all drivers will adhere to the law. In a Georgia personal injury case against an uninsured driver, you could be limited in the amount of compensation you can receive. After an accident, call Sheryl Burke, an experienced personal injury attorney who can help. 

Why You Should Choose Georgia’s “Add On” Car Insurance

In the most basic of explanations, “add on” insurance is protection for you in case you are in a car accident with a driver who does not have car insurance, which is illegal. Without “add on” insurance, you can be stuck footing the bill for the damages and any injuries you have sustained. This can also include: 
  • lost wages;
  • emotional pain and suffering; and
  • property damage.  

Because of a shaky economy, even more people are driving without insurance to avoid the cost. Repairs to a damaged vehicle can be expensive, and medical bills are even more so. You never expect an accident to happen, and you may not have the funds available at the time one strikes to handle these expenses on your own. That’s where “add on” car insurance can become a financial lifesaver. 

This type of coverage usually can be incorporated into your existing policy for a few more dollars a month. Talk with your insurance company to learn about the costs and paperwork involved in adding this coverage. If you have questions about insurance or filing a Georgia personal injury claim after an accident, a personal injury attorney like Sheryl Burke can help.
