According to Henningsen, accident victims need to prove negligence on the part of another driver – especially if police reports, witness testimony, and other evidences contradict each other.

Lawyer Talk, a television show that provides legal information for people in Atlanta, recently featured Todd Henningsen, a well-respected personal injury lawyer who serves local clients under the mantra “never settle for less.” Host Adam Goldfein opened the segment by applauding Henningsen’s ability to provide viewers with relevant legal insight.
“Todd Henningsen of Henningsen Injury Attorneys is one of Atlanta’s leading personal injury attorneys,” Goldfein said. “The audience responds. The one thing they like that [Todd does] better than anybody is provide information.” The rest of the show featured three important personal injury topics: legal liability, the value of an injury claim, and insurance.
Attorney Henningsen said, “We’re talking about legal liability. Who is responsible? We talk a lot about negligence, which is duty, breach of duty, causation, damages – all of these things. It’s all legal mumbo-jumbo. Let’s talk about it in a very simple context; a car wreck.” According to Goldfein, car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims.
After a car accident, Henningsen said, it is important to establish fault. Personal injury cases aren’t always “cut and dry,” Goldfein agreed. According to Henningsen, accident victims need to prove negligence on the part of another driver – especially if police reports, witness testimony, and other evidences contradict each other.
Goldfein and Henningsen also discussed the importance of navigating an insurance claim. “As personal injury attorneys, we need the insurance companies,” Henningsen said. However, he also said that accident victims should be wary of unfair insurance settlements. To avoid common pitfalls, Henningsen suggested that accident victims always speak with a lawyer before dealing with an insurance provider.
Henningsen explained other common personal injury pitfalls, such as failing to receive medical treatment right away and making sure that your rights are protected from the insurance company. Finally, Henningsen told viewers that staying informed is one of the best ways to avoid mistakes. “Information is power in these situations,” he said.
