Macon Personal Injury Lawyers Urge Victims Not to Settle Before Consulting an Attorney

The attorneys representing a Macon GA Accident Injury Law Firm strongly advise victims of personal injury accidents not to settle any claims before consulting a legal professional. These attorneys work for the law firm of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. This legal firm has successfully represented hundreds of personal injury victims in the Macon, Georgia area. They know that those victims who settle their personal injury claims before talking to a lawyer, oftentimes do not receive the fair compensation they are entitled too.

Company spokesperson Tim Derrickson talked more about this by saying, “Although insurance companies issue policies that help to protect their clients from financial loss, they are also businesses whose bottom-line revenue matters. That’s why it’s in their best interest to settle any personal injury claim for as little money as possible. They also know if they go to court against an experienced personal injury attorney the settlement amount is most likely to go up. For that reason, often they will try to encourage a victim to settle within the first few days of an accident before they have retained legal counsel. Sadly, this often works when a victim is starting to feel the pressure of mounting medical bills and the loss of income while recovering.”

Derrickson went on to say that there really is no good reason for a personal injury claimant not to at least sit-down and talk to a Macon personal injury attorney to see what they have to say. Personal accident consultations are free of charge and the victim will learn much about the legal process they are about to go through. Most law offices such as theirs will even go to visit a victim in the hospital if that’s what’s required in order to give them their first consultation. He added that in personal injury cases there are no legal fees at any point in time during the process if a lawyer agrees to take on their case. The legal firm representing them does not get paid if the personal injury victim does not receive compensation for what happened to them. Because of this, if a personal injury claimant does then decide to go ahead and retain legal counsel, they will have a strongly motivated attorney working on their behalf.

The spokesperson added that Georgia law is very complicated when it comes to personal injuries. He says the attorneys at their firm have the knowledge and experience to help get their clients fair settlements for their claims. They are not afraid to seek the help of experts such as professional accident investigators and other injury specialists to help any claim go their clients’ way.

Some of the personal injury areas where the firm has had great success include slip and fall accidents and medical malpractice. Derrickson says they are well-respected when it comes to workers' compensation cases too. He added they are even one of the few personal injury law firms that handle somewhat difficult nursing home abuse cases. The attorneys in Macon will even represent those who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death incident.

Derrickson added that they are one of the most respected Personal Injury Law Firms in Macon GA. He says that’s because a majority of the time the cases they are involved in are decided in their clients' favor. Many without having the additional burden of going to court. The spokesperson credits this to the fact that their clients are not only being assisted in their claims by an experienced personal injury attorney, but part of the legal team working on their behalf will also include paralegals, case managers, and administrative staff with strong professional and educational backgrounds in the personal injury legal field.

The Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. law firm is not only highly respected in Macon but elsewhere throughout the state too. They have law offices in 8 different Georgia cities. The other cities included on that list are Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Duluth, Savannah, and Valdosta. The firm’s philosophy is ‘one call does it all’. Once they have agreed to take on a personal injury victim’s case, they will handle the rest of the legal proceedings from then on.
