What is a personal injury claim?

In Georgia, you are allowed to recover damages from a person who negligently causes you a bodily injury. For example, if someone runs a red light and crashes into you, then they are responsible for your medical bills or other monetary damages. To recover money, you are required to show that the other party is at fault for causing the accident.

Proving your right to monetary damages is governed by Georgia “tort” law. There are different laws that apply to different kinds of cases, such as slip and falls, medical malpractice, or car accidents. An experienced personal injury attorneys will know which section of Georgia law applies to your case and will be able to investigate the liability of the at fault party.

WHAT IS What is a personal injury case worth?

The value of your personal injury case depends on your damages in the case. Money damages are paid to an injured person (the plaintiff) by the person or company who is found to be legally responsible for the injury. If the monetary value of your damages is high, then your case will be worth more money. For example, a case where a person has an expensive surgery will have high medical bills that will need to be paid. You are entitled to compensation for economic and non economic damages. Economic damages are things such as:

  • Medical bills (past, present, and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

Economic damages are things such as:

  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Evaluating the value of a personal injury case is a complicated process because the facts of every case are unique. This is not like buying an automobile where you can look up the fair value in the Kelley Blue Book. The economic damages, such as medical bills, can vary significantly depending on the medical providers that you see and the amount of treatment you receive. Non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering) can be more subjective to evaluate. The value your case can also be affected by factors such as the county where the accident happened, the amount of available insurance, whether fault is being disputed, etc. The only reasonable way to know what your case might be worth is to get an evaluation of you with an experienced personal injury attorney.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO HIRE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?

Step 1: Initial Meeting and Advice

If you're like most people, this is the first time that you've been in a car accident that caused serious bodily injury. One of the worst parts of getting an accident is the uncertainty that follows. You may be in pain, missing work, or have mounting medical bills. On top of all of this, getting compensated from the insurance company is a complicated and confusing process. We are here to help counsel you through the process and make sure you know exactly what to expect. Information is the most powerful tool that you have in your personal injury case. The first step is to meet with me and discuss the particular facts of your unique case. We will never charge you a fee for a consultation on your car wreck case.

Step 2: Documentation and Investigation

From the start of your case, we will start gathering all of the necessary documentation. This includes medical records, medical bills, and insurance policy information. The time period immediately following your accident is a crucial period to document the damages in your case. One of the most important things to do is make sure we have as much photographic evidence as possible. The ability to gather this evidence is time sensitive. We never wait to get pictures of the intersection, property damage, or traumatic injuries. For example, injuries may fade over time or intersections might undergo new construction.

A personal injury lawyer should be doing is investigating all possible sources of insurance. Sometimes there can be multiple insurance policies that cover one accident. It is very important that you discover all of the possible insurance in your case and that the correct insurance carriers are notified.

Step 3: Negotiation

We will negotiate with insurance company on your behalf. In most cases, the negotiation process begins after you have completed your medical treatment. We want to know all of the future treatment that the doctors recommending for you. We also want to have a clear understanding of any possible permanent impairment for disability that will result from the car crash. When we have all this information, we will have the best leverage to negotiate with the insurance company to get you a great settlement. Part of this process is sending the insurance company what is known as a "time-limited demand letter". In this letter, I will demand monetary compensation from the insurance company. This letter will be uniquely tailored to the facts and law in your case. A well written demand letter will help convince the insurance company that they are better off paying you money than fighting you in court.

Step 4: If it is necessary, we will file a lawsuit

Filing a lawsuit is necessary if the insurance company is not offering you a resaonable settlement. Approximately, 90 percent of cases settle without ever having to go to trial.
