Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a legal professional who specializes in providing legal representation to individuals who have suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm due to the negligence or intentional actions of others. They help victims seek compensation for their injuries.

Do I Need an Attorney for a Personal Injury Claim?

While you can file a personal injury claim on your own, having an experienced personal injury attorney can significantly improve your chances of securing a fair settlement. They have the expertise to navigate complex legal processes and negotiate with insurance companies.

Can I sue a business or property owner for a criminal act that occurred on their property?

Yes, you can pursue legal action against a property owner if their negligence contributed to the criminal act. We can evaluate the circumstances of your case to determine if you have a valid claim.

What Costs are Associated with Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if you win your case. Their fees are typically a percentage of the settlement amount, making legal representation accessible to those who need it.

How Do Personal Injury Settlements Work?

Personal injury settlements are agreements between the injured party and the at-fault party (or their insurance company) to resolve a legal claim without going to court. In exchange for compensation, the injured party agrees not to pursue further legal action.

What Factors Determine Personal Injury Settlement Amounts?

Personal injury settlement amounts vary widely and depend on factors such as the severity of the injury, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the degree of liability of the at-fault party. Each case is unique.

Can I receive compensation for future medical expenses and ongoing care?

Yes, you can. In catastrophic injury cases, we work to ensure that your compensation covers not only current medical expenses but also the anticipated costs of future treatment and care.

What should I do if I'm injured on someone else's property?

Seek medical attention immediately and document the scene if possible. Report the incident to the property owner or manager and consult with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.

When Should I File a Personal Injury Claim?

You should file a personal injury claim as soon as possible after the injury occurs. The statute of limitations in Georgia limits the time you have to file a claim, and waiting too long may jeopardize your ability to seek compensation.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Claim Take to Resolve?

The duration of a personal injury claim varies depending on its complexity, but many cases are resolved within months. More complex cases or those that go to court may take longer, sometimes even several years.

Can You Provide Examples of Personal Injury Settlement Amounts?

The specific settlement amount in personal injury cases varies widely based on the factors mentioned above. For instance, a minor car accident with minor injuries might result in a settlement of a few thousand dollars, while a severe injury case or wrongful death claim could lead to settlements in the millions

What Happens in Personal Injury Court?

Personal injury cases may go to court if a settlement cannot be reached through negotiations. In court, both parties present their evidence, witnesses testify, and a judge or jury determines liability and the amount of compensation, if any.
