Personal Injury

In the blink of an eye, an accident can change your life forever. Whether it’s a serious injury that dramatically alters your lifestyle or a minor accident that leads to medical bills and lost wages, you deserve justice. The party that inflicted this change should be held responsible for their actions — and you should receive compensation for what you’ve had to endure.

Personal Injury: More Than an Injury

Recovery from your personal injury is important, and recovery involves more than the physical pain you’ve experienced. Whether it’s a slip-and-fall accident at a grocery store, a pedestrian accident during a night out, or an injury caused by simply doing your job, you may also need recovery in the following areas:

  • Medical expenses. Even a small injury can lead to staggering medical bills, which many people have to go into debt to pay. Use your settlement to cover this expense.
  • Damage to your property. Your property, like your car or your home, may have been damaged due to the incident.
  • Emotional distress. You may experience powerful emotions as a result of your injury. Emotional distress can even cause Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and more.
  • Rehabilitative care. Physical therapy can help you on your road to recovery. Focus on your rehabilitation and let the responsible party pay for the care.
  • Lost wages and/or employment. An injury can lead to missed days at work or even the loss of your job. You worked hard for your employment — use your settlement to make up for lost time.

Determining Personal Injury Fault in Georgia

There’s one question many people share about personal injury lawsuits: “Can the other party blame me for the incident?” For example, if you were hit by a car as a pedestrian and you file a personal injury case, could the driver then turn the case around on you because you were jaywalking?

Georgia’s comparative fault law helps protect you in cases such as these. The court will do more than evaluate which party is at fault — they’ll consider how much fault each party may have. In the example above, the court may determine that you’re 30% at fault because you were jaywalking. If the settlement resulted in a $100,000 payout, you would collect $70,000, or 70%, of the reward.

In the state of Georgia, you have two years after the incident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, our attorneys recommend that you begin your case as quickly as possible. Doing so will help you receive the settlement you deserve — faster.
