Common Car Accident Injuries
Car crashes are well-known for causing severe, even catastrophic injuries that can leave you physically and emotionally damaged for days, months, years, or even a lifetime. These injuries may require hospitalization, surgeries, therapy, and more.
Some of the most common injuries sustained in a car crash are:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries

- Whiplash and other neck injuries
If you've suffered any of the following injuries, you have the right to be compensated for your losses.
Damages You Can Recover in a Car Accident Claim
A car accident is a serious financial setback. While under medical care, you are unable to work and face loss of wages while your medical expenses soar. When all of this has been caused by the actions of negligent parties, those parties need to be held accountable under personal injury law.
Our goal will be to secure damages for:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills, both now and in the future
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Any other economic or non-economic damages that are pertinent
You shouldn't have to bear the financial burden of an auto accident that was caused by someone else. Contact Tate Law Group today to schedule a free consultation of your case with a car accident lawyer in Savannah.
Proving Fault in Your Car Accident Case
While some auto accidents are simple, involving only one other driver, many others are complex and can involve multiple drivers, commercial trucks, and defective auto parts. In order to determine fault for your accident and pursue compensation from all responsible parties, you need a Savannah car accident lawyer who is not only experienced but is equipped with the resources necessary to fully investigate your accident.
Our team can get to work immediately following your car crash to gather evidence that will support your claim. We know how to document that evidence and use experts to demonstrate fault. We can also employ experts to determine the full impact of your injuries both now and into the future. Furthermore, using our tough negotiation and litigation skills, we can go to bat for you seeking maximum compensation through a settlement or take your case to court, where our strong trial skills will be used.
What If I Share Fault for My Accident?
It is not uncommon for the person injured in a car accident to be partially at fault for the collision. The other driver, and more importantly, their insurance company, will do everything in their power to avoid being found at fault. However, even if it can be proven that you share fault for the accident, you can still recover compensation under Georgia's comparative fault law.
Comparative fault allows the plaintiff in a personal injury case to still be awarded damages in the event they are found partially at fault for the accident. However, the amount of damages they are awarded will be reduced by the amount of fault they are responsible for. For example, if a jury awards the plaintiff $100,000 in damages, but also finds the plaintiff to share 10% fault, then the final recovery amount will be $90,000.
In order to maximize your recovery, you need an experienced, aggressive attorney who can prove the other driver was entirely at fault for the accident, or reduce your amount of shared fault.
