Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Do you have to serve the person who hits you when you are involved in an accident or do you just serve the insurance company?

This is a commonly misunderstood topic. If you are suing someone who has hit you in a car accident, you are suing the driver not the insurance company. The insurance company (because of a contract with the at-fault driver) will represent the at-fault driver, but you cannot just serve the insurance company.

This helps make service of the lawsuit a little more challenging and a reason why our office will not take any case that is within six months of the statute of limitations or deadline.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
