Follow Up With Medical Professionals

If you didn’t receive medical care immediately after the accident but are now experiencing pain or discomfort, it’s crucial to see a doctor promptly. Some injuries may not become evident right away.

Gather Your Notes and Information

It’s easy to forget the details of a traumatic experience, so document your memories. Make sure to also keep records of all expenses related to the accident, including medical bills, vehicle repair costs, and rental car expenses.

    ReShea and I have litigated against each other for years and she very quickly earned my respect for her competency and professionalism. Since, I have referred many clients to her and they have all been exceptionally happy with her results and service.

    The Balams Law Firm hands down in the best in Atlanta. I had a injury at a hotel in Atlanta and I called 5 law firms, 3 of them being the big named ones you see on tv radio and they would not take me as a client. I found their number on google and talked to them and they took my case.
