I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
What To Do If I Am Being Sued
First, you will want to contact the insurance company you had when the accident occurred. That insurance company is still responsible for providing you the protection afforded by your policy at the time of the crash.
Next, find out what the statue of limitations is for Georgia. If too much time has passed then filing a new claim will be unsuccessful. However, attorneys know what the statute of limitations is and if they suit is being filed by a reputable attorney this will not be an issue.
The limits of your policy will be the limits of a claim is settled. It will be in your best interest to make sure your insurance company is providing counsel for your or you contract a lawyer of your own.
Typically with the majority of car accidents, the policy of the guilty party is usually sufficient to cover the penalties and injuries that were involved. Having your insurance company on your side is your first defense but putting an experienced lawyer on your side is the next step. Do not attempt to represent yourself in this situation. You will need someone with experience fighting on your side.
