No one anticipates being involved in a car accident, but unfortunately for millions of Americans each year, accidents happen. A car accident occurs in just seconds, but its impact can last for days, weeks, months, years, or even a lifetime.

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Head trauma
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Arm and leg injuries

Compensation for Your Georgia Auto Accident Related Losses

One of the first questions many car accident victims will have is: how much compensation will I receive in a personal injury or wrongful death case? Your exact recovery will depend on the unique circumstances surrounding the crash and your injuries. In a personal injury action, your damages are generally the most important factors in determining case value, which include, among others:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and ongoing lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Those who tragically lose a loved one in a Georgia car accident may be able to seek the following damages in wrongful death and survivor claims against the negligent driver(s) or company(s) who caused the crash:

  • Lost wages and other benefits that decedent might have reasonably earned if he or she had lived
  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Conscious pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship and care

Other factors affecting case value can include, among others, the strength of liability, the location of the accident, whether the defendant’s conduct was egregious enough to warrant punitive damages, and the specific laws and cases that apply to your situation.
