What is my personal injury case worth?
Each claim is unique, and the value of your case depends upon many factors. Evaluating your injuries is generally the first step in determining case value. This number will vary from case to case, depending on the total amount of your medical bills, lost wages, length of treatment, as well as pain and suffering. Also taken into consideration is the strength of liability, whether the defendant’s conduct can be considered grossly negligent (which may entitle you to additional money in the form of punitive damages), the location of the accident, and the specific laws that apply to your situation. Every case we take on, we take personally. Our talented legal teams have won billions of dollars for our clients when they needed it most.
How long do I have after my accident to bring my personal injury claim?
Under Georgia law, as a general rule, you have two years from the date of an automobile accident or other type of incident to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. However, like everything, there are exceptions that can shorten or lengthen the timeframe.
Insurance policies usually have their own complex notification deadlines. Additionally, remember that laws and legal time deadlines can vary from state to state. Ultimately, the longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to establish your claim with sufficient evidence.
That is why it is so important to call Montlick for a free consultation as soon as possible. If you’re unsure whether you have a viable case, call today and a Montlick attorney will walk you through your options.
What if I was partially at fault for the accident?
Even if you were cited by law enforcement or believe you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation. Georgia follows the doctrine of modified comparative negligence, allowing plaintiffs that are less than 50% at-fault to bring an action against the negligent person or party. If you are partially at fault for your accident, your recovery can be reduced by your percentage of fault. A Montlick attorney can, depending on the circumstances, examine and preserve the evidence of what happened, locate and interview eyewitnesses, reconstruct the accident scene, obtain police reports, in some cases find additional parties at fault, and take other actions in an effort to prove that the negligent party was more liable than the insurance company is arguing.
