Common Questions Regarding Injury Claims
How much compensation will I be able to recover?
The total amount of compensation varies from case to case and depends on
multiple factors. When evaluating your case, we will look at your medical
expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The more serious your case,
the more compensation you are likely to receive.
Why does negligence matter?
Negligence matters because this is the basis of your personal injury case.
By proving negligence, you prove that the other party did not exercise
enough caution, and this is what caused your injuries.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
The state of Georgia follows a statute of limitations which determines
how long you have after your injury to file a lawsuit. Typically, you
have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. If you
wait too long, you will be unable to file.
Should I accept the compensation offer I received from the insurance company?
No. We cannot stress this enough. Most insurance companies are hoping to
settle every claim as quickly as possible, which means that they will
offer a low settlement right away. Your attorney can ensure that you receive
a fair settlement.
I was injured. What should I do first?
Receiving medical care is the number one priority. After that, it is important
to secure legal counsel right away in order to retain necessary evidence
for your case.
