Auto Accidents

So you were hurt in an auto accident. What do you do now? Dealing with insurance companies, medical bills, car repairs, and missed time from work can be an incredibly stressful and confusing experience. You don't have to go through any of this on your own-that's why we're here. The attorneys and professional staff members at Cramer & Peavy have a well-developed arsenal of resources ready to be employed on your behalf. With over 30 years of experience dealing with injury claims and insurance matters, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.


What to do (and what NOT to do) if you get in an auto accident:

Do's:

  • Notify the police an accident has occurred and request officer assistance.
  • Request a police report from the investigating police or sheriff's department.
  • Take pictures of all involved vehicles or arrange for someone to take pictures and send them to you.
  • Take down insurance information of the other drivers.
  • Take down names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
  • Notify your own insurance company that you have been involved in an auto accident.
  • If you're hurt, make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as reasonably possible.
  • Take notes about the collision as soon as you can and be thorough. Sometimes, even the smallest details can change the outcome of a case.

Donts:

  • If you're experiencing serious pain, do not exit your vehicle unless doing so is absolutely necessary to prevent further injury to yourself or others.
  • Never agree to providing other insurance companies with a recorded statement. Often, such companies will use tricks to get you to admit wrongdoing and use your words against you.

Trucking Accidents

Tractor trailers are serious vehicles that can cause serious injuries. Because tractor trailers are such large vehicles, their drivers are charged with great responsibility for safely operating them on public roads. When such a massive vehicle causes an accident, the results are often severe and sometimes even deadly. To make matters worse, these massive trucks are almost always owned by multi-million dollar corporations that have extensive resources they will use to try and minimize or completely defeat your claim. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a trucking accident, you need a serious law firm to take the case and protect your rights. The complexities involved with these kinds of accidents can be overwhelming, so don't take on this task alone. We have the knowledge and experience to take on these corporations and will make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.


Personal Injury

Only you know what yo''ve been through in accident; your pain is yours alone. But that doesn't mean you have to suffer alone. Cramer & Peavy understands what you're dealing with, especially the tremendous stress thrown upon you by a careless individual or company. Don't stand idly by and deal with the frustration and pain you have endured. You simply do not need to suffer through any of this without medical treatment, a way to pay your household bills, or guidance on complex regulations and rules being spouted at you by insurance adjusters. Cramer & Peavy can get you back on the right track.


It is very important that you take the proper steps now that you have been injured. By calling Cramer & Peavy today you'll know you have over 30 years of personal injury experience on your side. Over the past few decades working on injury claims, we've seen all the issues and can advise you appropriately. The law is constantly evolving so you need experience on your side during this difficult time.


Medical Malpractice

Medical care is a necessary factor in everyday life. We rely on medical professionals to make the right decisions for our own personal health and the health of our loved ones. However, when a medical care provider fails to treat a patient properly, they put that patient's health, wellbeing, and sometimes even their life at risk. Because one bad decision by a doctor or a nurse can put you in serious danger, the consequences for such bad decisions are equally as serious. If you've suffered an injury at the hands of a healthcare provider, you may be entitled to compensation. When Cramer & Peavy takes a medical malpractice case, not only will you be compensated for your injuries, but we will work hard to ensure that others like you will be protected from such bad decisions in the future.


Slip & Fall

Georgia law requires large and small businesses alike to ensure their premises are safe for the public. Essentially, they have a duty to keep you safe while you're in and around their place of business. When businesses ignore this duty, it puts both the general public and individuals like you at serious risk of injury. If you've been hurt because a business negligently failed to maintain safe premises, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills as well as for your pain and suffering. Not only will the attorneys and professional staff at Cramer & Peavy fight for your rights and get you the compensation you deserve, but we will work tirelessly to make sure that business cleans up its act and doesn't hurt anyone else again.


Worker's Comp

If you've been hurt at work, then you know that workers' compensation law is a system designed to protect employers rather than employees. Filing a claim for work-related injuries can be a very delicate endeavor, and many injured employees often worry about retaliation from their employers. If you've been hurt on the job, you need someone to fight for your best interests and protect you from any unfair business practices. Not only will we get you the compensation you're entitled to, we will deal with the "politics" and make sure you're treated with the dignity and respect you deserve.
