Saving A Few Bucks on Car Insurance Could Really Cost You And Your Family

Being in this line of work (helping people recover from serious personal injuries), we see our fair share of car wrecks.  Bad wrecks.

Wrecks causing serious, debilitating, life-altering, life-taking injuries.   Unfortunately, the most careless among us tend to have the least to lose and are often grossly underinsured.  Georgia law only requires that a driver have $25,000.00 in liability insurance.  That’s it.  If you are seriously injured, that won’t even cover an… [Read More...]
