Common Injuries We Handle in Atlanta

If you were injured in an accident, it is crucial that you get access to the proper medical care. All serious injuries require an immediate medical evaluation and sustained follow-up treatment. Nothing should come before your health and well-being. Over the course of Michael’s career he has litigated a variety of different injury cases. Some of the most prevalent include:

  • Head injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Loss of limbs;
  • Severe cuts and lacerations; and
  • Whiplash injuries.

An Overview of Personal Injury Liability in Georgia

To hold a defendant liable for an accident, you must prove fault. Most personal injury claims in Georgia arise under the legal theory of negligence. Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care. If your accident occurred because of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Your accident should be investigated immediately. Our Atlanta, GA personal injury lawyers are ready to help. We will gather and organize all of the evidence you need to prove liability.

How Much Compensation Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?

One of the most pressing things that most people want to ask a personal injury attorney is: How much is my case worth? The value of a personal injury claim is dependent on several factors, including your ability to prove liability, the extent of your damages, and how effectively you can navigate the legal claims process. Under Georgia law, you can hold a negligent defendant liable for the full value of your economic and noneconomic damages. Sadly, corporations never make it easy for people to recover the full amount of money they deserve. At MG Law, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers know how to get our clients justice and financial support.

4 FAQs About Personal Injury Cases

1. What Are the Elements of a Personal Injury Claim?

While you may feel as though you have the right to bring forth a claim against another person based on an injury you’ve suffered, there are actually four elements that must be established in a personal injury claim. A person maintains a cause of action against another when one party’s negligence leads to the harm of another. In order to win your personal injury claim and recover the damages to which you’re entitled, you’ll need to prove:

Duty of care. The first thing that you’ll need to prove is that the defendant owed you a duty of care. Duty of care may be implied. For example, a doctor owes their patient a duty of care based on the doctor-patient relationship. Or, the driver of a car owes others on the road a duty of care by virtue of operating a motor vehicle.

Breach of duty of care. The second thing that you’ll need to prove is that the defendant breached the duty of care owed to you, typically via an act of negligence (although sometimes, such as in the case of a doctor, an act of malpractice). Negligence refers to the failure to act with the same degree of care that another reasonable person of ordinary prudence in the same situation would exercise. For example, a driver breaches the duty of care owed to others when they speed. A property owner breaches the duty of care to others when they fail to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition.

Causation. The third thing that must be established is causation – that is, that your injuries would not have occurred but for the breach of the duty of care/negligence. Even if you can prove that the defendant did something negligent and that you were harmed, if you cannot prove causation, you will not have a case.

Damages. Finally, you must prove that you actually suffered damages as a result of the breach of duty of care. Damages might include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage costs, pain and suffering, etc.

2. How Much Time Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Suit?

Unfortunately, we are too often asked this question by people who have already missed out on their opportunity to file a claim because they waited too long to do so. In Georgia, the statute of limitations governs how much time a person has to file a claim after being involved in an accident. Per Georgia Code Section 9-3-33, a civil action for a personal injury must be commenced within two years of the date that the cause of action accrues. That means that you have two years from the date that your injuries were incurred to file a civil action; if you wait longer than the two-year time period, you will be permanently barred from recovery.

3. What Happens if I’m Found to Be Partially At-Fault for My Injuries?

Another question that our legal team frequently encounters is that of what happens if a victim contributed to their injuries in some way. Take the case of a car accident – what happens if the other driver ran a red light, causing the accident, but the victim was traveling above the speed limit, which increased the force involved in the crash and the severity of damages?

The state of Georgia adheres to a modified comparative negligence rule. This means that a plaintiff will not be barred from recovering compensation from a defendant, even if they contributed to their own injuries, so long as their degree of fault is less than 50 percent. While a plaintiff will not be barred from recovery, their recoverable damages award will be reduced in proportion to their degree of fault. Referring back to the example above, if the court found that the plaintiff was 10 percent to blame for their injuries based on the speed at which they were traveling at the time of collision, the plaintiff could only hold the defendant liable for 90 percent of their total losses.

4. How Can an Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Help Me?

If you’ve been injured, you may be wondering whether or not you even need an attorney or if you should just initiate the claims process on your own. While you have every right to do that, it’s not recommended – your chances of recovering the settlement you deserve are better if you work with an attorney. An attorney will handle all of the details of your case, explain the law, advocate for you, and more!
