Proving Negligence in Injury Claims
Our team of dedicated attorneys have the knowledge and skill necessary
to win cases.
We know what it takes to prove that our clients have endured undue suffering
and deserve to be compensated for their damages. In most personal injury claims, the governing concept is known as negligence.
This is based on the notion that every human has a responsibility to take
any and all reasonable measures to avoid causing harm to others.
When someone violates this notion and acts in a manner that is reckless
or careless and disregards the safety of those around them, this is considered
negligence. If such actions resulted in an accident that caused injury,
he or she is typically responsible for any damages that were caused. Thus
to prove a personal injury claim, your lawyer has to show evidence that
the defendant’s negligent actions directly or proximately caused
free consultation to determine whether or not you have a valid claim!
"How much is my claim worth?"
When you bring your case to our firm, we will conduct thorough and extensive
investigations into the circumstances of your incident and into the scope
and severity of your damages in order to fight for every dollar that you deserve.
No formula is going to exactly estimate your damages, since there are forms
of suffering which you cannot place a monetary value upon. In these cases,
it is standard to use a kind of multiplier so that victims are compensated
for the emotional damages they have been forced to endure.
The following factors can affect the amount of compensation you are entitled to:
The severity of the injury
The permanency of the injury
Disruptions to your daily life
The length of recovery time needed
Whether or not your injuries were treated by a doctor
Your credibility and the credibility of the defendant
Whether or not medication was prescribed for continual treatment
Furthermore, it is important to note that a victim’s own actions
leading up to an accident can affect the amount of compensation that you
Georgia’s negligence laws allows for the defense of modified comparative fault. This means that a plaintiff can only recover monetary damages in amounting
to the total damages minus the percentage of their own liability.
That is to say that if a plaintiff is determined to have contributed to
25% of the fault for the accident, he or she can only recover 75% of the
total damages. Additionally, under Georgia laws, plaintiffs determined
to be more than 50% at fault cannot recover damages at all.

claims process so that you can be prepared for what's ahead.
You Only Have 2 Years to File Your Claim
Regardless of the type of accident you have been injured in, you must keep
in mind that Georgia law places a limitation on the amount of time that
you have to file a claim.
There is a two-year deadline, called a statute of limitations, which mandates that personal injury claims or wrongful death claims must
be filed within that time-frame. Our firm is here to make sure that you
receive the compensation that you deserve, regardless of what your accident
involves and who was responsible.
