Experienced Valdosta Car Accident Lawyers
Injured in an Auto Accident? Fight for Relief with Studstill Firm, LLP.
Motor vehicle accidents occur in a split second, changing lives forever. Sometimes car accidents are truly an accident—where nobody is at fault in causing the collision. However, most of the time, the crash is the result of someone else’s carelessness, wrongful conduct, or negligence.
Georgia law provides an injured person, or the family of a deceased individual, with the right to recover compensation from the party responsible for the crash. Although a monetary recovery cannot completely repair the harm done to an individual or family, it does help to ease some of the financial burdens, such as providing money for future medical care and recovering lost income.
Our team at Studstill Firm, LLP can help you and your family recover relief for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. If you've been hurt, call (229) 515-8900 today.

Car Accidents & Negligence
Does every car accident call for legal action? Not necessarily-- in some cases, neither driver is at fault. However, when one driver's negligent actions contribute to a collision, they can be held accountable for any resulting damages.
Common forms of driver negligence include:
- Distracted driving (smartphone, radio, devices, etc.)
- Impaired driving (alcohol and drugs)
- Reckless driving
- Failure to heed traffic signage or lights
- Failure to check blind spots before turn/lane change
Steps to Take After a Car Accident
It’s very important to understand that the primary goal of insurance companies after an accident is to limit the amount of compensation they have to pay to injured parties. Therefore, dealing with them can be very difficult for a person not trained in handling these types of issues.
The insurance company for the individual who caused the wreck will start an investigation immediately after they are notified about the wreck. They will have an entire team of professionals—adjusters, lawyers, and others—working to help their case immediately after the crash. They will contact accident victims to get statements as quickly as possible and, often, they will use those statements against the injured persons later to limit the amount of money they receive.
If you are being contacted by an insurance adjuster, it’s very important that you speak with an experienced car accident attorney at the Studstill Firm, LLP before making any statements. We know how to deal with insurance companies and protect your rights after a car accident. Rarely will an individual maximize their recovery by negotiating with an insurance company on their own.
