Personal Injury FAQ:


    A:Personal injury is a type of tort or civil wrong that imposes legal liability on the party who caused the loss or harm. It specifically refers to loss or harm to an individual’s body or emotions as a result of another party’s acts or omissions. A personal injury attorney in Atlanta can help you determine if you have a personal injury case.


    A:Before you file a lawsuit, seek professional treatment for any injuries you have suffered. In addition to this, there are several things that should be done when you have suffered a personal injury. First, document your injuries and losses. It is extremely important to document any injuries you have suffered, as well as any damage to your personal property. Make sure to get copies of accident reports the police may make, take pictures, keep receipts and invoices from any medical expenses, keep notes of new symptoms, and keep track of any time off work because of the injury. Next, if there were any witnesses to the incident, get information from them (if possible). Take down their phone numbers, addresses, and a statement about the incident. The next thing you should do is open a claim with the insurance company of the person or entity who caused your injury. Some important things to NOT do after you are injured include not giving any statements to anyone other than the police, not discussing the accident/incident with anyone or posting about it on social media, and not signing any releases of liability or potential claims before speaking with a lawyer. Successfully taking these initial steps can protect the integrity of your injury claim and help ensure you recover maximum compensation.


    A:The statute of limitations, or time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia civil court, is generally two years from the date of the incident. If a lawsuit is not filed within that time period, the claim will usually be time-barred, and the court will not hear your claim. Claims against governmental entities (the state, counties, and municipalities) have specific notice requirements (ante litem notice) that must be followed. In Georgia, ante litem notice may be as soon as six months after an incident and if the proper ante litem notice is not provided, the claim will be barred. It is important to consult an injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident to ensure your claim will not be barred due to a lack of proper notice or missing a statute of limitations.


    A:In Georgia, all parties are held responsible for damages proportionate to their percentage of fault. If a plaintiff is found by a jury to be 50% or more at fault for his or her injuries, he or she cannot recover any compensation from the defendant. If the defendant is greater than 50% at fault, then the plaintiff can recover damages, but the recovery will be reduced by a plaintiff’s degree of fault. In Georgia, a plaintiff may be entitled to compensation from other potentially liable parties for medical expenses relating to the injury at issue; any lost wages (possibly including future income) that are a direct result of the injury; compensation for severe emotional anguish; reimbursement for relevant property damage; loss of society, companionship, or consortium; and pain and suffering. In limited circumstances, an injured plaintiff may be able to recover punitive damages. This type of damages is available in cases where a defendant’s actions “showed willful misconduct, malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression, or that entire want of care which would raise the presumption of conscious indifference to consequences.” Punitive damages are governed by Georgia Code Section 51-12-5.1 and are capped at $250,000. The exceptions to this cap are product liability claims and cases where the “defendant acted, or failed to act, with the specific intent to cause harm,” or where the defendant acted or failed to act while under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, or any intentionally consumed substance to such a degree that his or her judgment is substantially impaired.


    A:Even if you had a pre-existing condition and the accident exacerbated the injury or illness, you may still be entitled to damages to account for the at-fault person’s negligence. It is irrelevant that someone without your condition may or may not have been injured to the same degree. However, these cases do tend to be slightly more complex and will require the services of an injury attorney from the start. Filing a lawsuit is often a difficult process that is only further complicated by attempting to deal with injuries.
