Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Georgia
Why do I need an attorney?
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether it was an auto, motorcycle, pedestrian, truck, or any other type of accident, hiring an attorney can be one of the most crucial steps you can take to protect your rights and recover the compensation you need now and in the future. An insurance company has financial incentive to deny or minimize your claim, and obtaining representation can be a critical step in leveling the playing field.
How soon after my accident do I have to file a claim?
In most serious injury cases, is important to retain a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights and collect important evidence. The legal timeframe that you have to file a lawsuit is known as the statute of limitations, which varies from state to state as well as depending on what type of claim you are pursuing. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the mandatory statute of limitations, your action can be permanently barred. For most personal injury cases in Georgia, you generally have two years from your injury to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as statutory notice deadlines when pursuing claims against government entities. Moreover, contractual notice deadlines with your own insurance company can also apply. Again it is also important to preserve important evidence and obtain necessary witness statements. Physical evidence and witnesses tend disappear as time passes.
What damages can I recover?
Your precise financial recovery will depend largely on the type of case and the damages suffered. Other factors can involve how strong the liability is, the location of the accident, and the specific laws and cases that apply to your own set of circumstances. However, your damages are generally most important in determining your case value. Damages include the amount of your medical bills, lost wages, Pain and Suffering and more. You may also be entitled to punitive damages if the defendant’s conduct rose to the level of gross negligence. This is important if, by way of example, the person who caused the accident was driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, fled the scene, or engaged in any type of conduct that could be construed as grossly negligent. Our attorneys fight hard for our injured clients and explore all possible avenues of financial recovery.
