If you were injured or otherwise harmed due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for compensation under Georgia law. To determine whether you have a valid claim, consult with an experienced attorney/law firm that has handled similar matters. Evaluating your options as soon as possible after the injury incident occurs is the best way to preserve your rights so you can make informed decisions.What will my claim be worth?
A number of variables can impact the potential value of your personal injury compensation claim. These include:
- The nature and severity of the injury accident
- The extent of your injuries
- The extent to which your injuries impact your daily activities
Your attorney will work to estimate the value of your claim and fight for the full amount of compensation you are entitled to receive under Georgia law.The insurance company offered a settlement. Should I take it?
Before signing anything or agreeing to accept a proposed settlement from the responsible party or their insurance company, talk to a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who can help you evaluate the offer. Unfortunately, insurance companies’ initial offers of compensation are often intentionally low; injured parties who accept settlements cannot later go back to ask for more compensation. Engaging an attorney means you will have a fierce advocate in your corner, fighting for a fair settlement.Are there different types of personal injury damages?
Yes! Victims in personal injury cases may be entitled to both economic and noneconomic damages. In some cases, victims may also be able to recover punitive damages.
Economic damages include direct financial expenses such as medical expenses, compensation for damage to personal property, and lost wages. Noneconomic damages include money designed to compensate victims for emotional distress and pain and suffering. Punitive damages, available in limited circumstances, are designed to punish the responsible party for their actions. Your attorney will explain the potential damages available for your personal injury claim.Is there a time limit for filing a Georgia personal injury claim?
Unfortunately, yes. Waiting too long to file a claim for damages could mean you are barred from pursuing your legal rights to compensation. In Georgia, there are specific statutes of limitations (time limits) for filing claims. The applicable time frame depends on the circumstances and parties to the case, so it is important to talk to a knowledgeable attorney as soon as you feel up to doing so to preserve your legal rights.How much will it cost me to hire a personal injury lawyer?
In most cases, personal injury victims do not pay anything out of pocket to work with a car accident lawyer or other personal injury lawyer. That’s because personal injury law firms often work on a contingency basis. This means that the client only pays the firm if the firm is successful in recovering damages for the client.Have You Been Injured in a Sandy Springs Area Accident?
