Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers FAQs
Common Injury Accident Questions
When might I need a personal injury lawyer and how do I use one?
If you have suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault you most likely need a personal injury lawyer. The injury could be the result of negligent or reckless behavior and it includes but is not limited to car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, or burn injuries.
Is the accident I suffered a personal injury case?
There are many accidents that count as personal injury cases in Atlanta, GA – from dog bites to car accidents. They are usually due to accidents willfully caused or resulting from the negligence of another person, company, or government agency. Feel free to contact us at no cost to you in order to determine if you have a case and if you can file a claim for the incident.
When can I sue my employer for an injury?
Employers are obligated to provide their employees with a safe environment, but, unfortunately, that is not always the case. You can file a claim for personal injury that occurred at your workplace if your employer intentionally or negligently caused you harm. This includes being exposed to chemicals, or if you were injured by a machine, equipment, or by a third party.
What will my personal injury lawyer do for me?
A personal injury lawsuit starts with filing a complaint. Your lawyer will take care of preparing all the necessary documentation to support your case and then fight for you. An experienced lawyer will ensure that you receive the justice and compensation you deserve.
How do I choose a personal injury lawyer?
There are many personal injury lawyers, but you need to choose an experienced lawyer who is going to show you compassion, care, skill, and devotion to your specific case. That is why our team at Singleton Law Firm is fully committed to providing the best possible legal care.
What questions should you ask a personal injury lawyer?
Your personal injury lawyer is someone you are going to work very closely with, so you should feel free to discuss anything with him or her. It is also important to be aware of what the claims process entails, so you should ask your lawyer about the fees, about what happens after a case is closed (no matter the outcome), the time frame, and about his or her previous experience.
How long can a personal injury lawsuit take?
The time each personal injury case takes is different and depends on many factors. This could vary from a few months to a year or more.
Why do insurance companies settle out of court?
It is true that about 95% of personal injury cases are settled out of court by insurance companies. This depends on both sides of the argument and the agreements the parties come to. The reasons a case is settled in or out of court can be evidence, coverage, differences in expectations, etc. Usually, insurance companies do not like to spend a lot of time on a case; a lawyer, on the other hand, will dedicate his or her time to your case.
How do I get the most money from a car accident?
The compensation process is something you should trust your lawyer with. Ask direct questions about the amount of money you can settle for after a car accident. Do not forget it is also important to first speak to an attorney and only then to your insurance company.
Is it better to settle out of court or go to trial?
Going to a trial for a personal injury case can be stressful and protracted. Not only does a trial entail more fees, but it may also take up too much of your time. On the other hand, it could have benefits that would make it worth proceeding to trial. Figuring out what is best for your specific case is what your lawyer will do for you.
What should I do after an injury in Atlanta, Georgia?
Atlanta personal injury victims often face confusion and stress immediately following an injury. Keep these things in mind after your accident, as recommended by Singleton Law Firm, LLC:
Consult a medical professional
You may be in shock immediately following an accident. Accidents that seem minor could have serious repercussions days, weeks, or even months later. In addition, the insurance company will use the fact that you didn’t seek medical attention against your claim if you don’t do so after your accident. You should seek medical attention immediately after your accident to protect your legal rights.
Be careful when signing documents from insurance companies
If you contact the opposing party’s insurance company about a possible claim, they are likely to rush to you and try to pressure you into signing a settlement agreement. You may even be scammed by them if you do not know what the law says.
Getting injured can leave you feeling confused, frightened, or worried about the future. Your right to seek significant compensation may be compromised if you sign a settlement agreement with an insurance company.
Financial problems can seem like certainty and a short-term solution if you have a settlement agreement. After the shock from the medical evaluation wears off, you might find that your case is worth much more than you expected. Be wary about signing anything from an insurance company or giving a recorded statement before you know the value of your case.
Do I have a valid personal injury claim?
Unless you have a deep understanding of Georgia state law, you can’t tell if your case is valid on your own. It is not uncommon for some victims of accidents to believe they are the ones at fault, only to discover they are not. An injury caused by another person is not always the result of malice. Some accidents are simply accidents. Negligence can still play a role in unintentional accidents.
Most accidents could be prevented if the other person put in a little effort. It’s possible that the other person wasn’t paying attention for a split second. There are times when a few minutes of distraction can be all the difference between life and death. Contact an Atlanta personal injury lawyer at our firm to determine if you qualify for compensation.
What is the process of filing a personal injury lawsuit in Atlanta?
In Georgia, personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years from the date of injury. You could lose your right to seek justice unless you file a lawsuit within two years.
Claim proceedings follow similar steps to lawsuits. In the beginning, we investigate your claim, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and obtain your medical records. Following this phase, each side submits its findings to the other in the discovery phase.
The insurance company will review the material after receiving our demand and the supporting evidence. Depending on their response, they might accept the claim, or they might counteroffer with a lower amount. As your advocate, we will continue negotiating until everyone-including you-believes that a fair agreement has been reached.
You have the option to take your claim to court if we cannot come to an agreement regarding your suffering as well as the insurance provider. Your case will be handled on an individual basis and we will not make any decisions without your permission. Let us be your advocates.
Both sides may interview anyone connected with your case during this phase. Witnesses may be interviewed by both sides during the trial. As we seek to bolster our case, the opposing side may be looking for inconsistencies or ways to spin their story.
Perhaps both sides will agree to sit down for mediation depending on how things go. There is a meeting with attorneys for both sides, as well as you and the person who injured you.
Before your case goes to trial, we try to resolve it through mediation. We reach a settlement without taking your case to trial. If the mediation does not produce a settlement, we prepare for trial.
Trials take place in front of a judge and jury, who present both sides’ arguments and evidence. We are committed to fighting for your rights and presenting your case as vigorously as possible. The jury deliberates and decides the winner once both sides have presented their cases.
What types of compensation can I receive in a personal injury case?
Your accident may be eligible for economic and non-economic losses, which will likely require both financial and non-financial compensation. You may suffer direct financial losses as a result of your injury. An example of a non-economic loss is pain and suffering, which do not have a monetary value.
- Economic losses
- Health care expenses and medications
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Lost wages in the future (if you cannot return to work)
- Property loss
- Wrongful death
- Non-economic damages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Punitive damages
Punitive damages are also awarded to some Atlanta personal injury victims. It is punitive damages that punish the party responsible for your injuries, not economic or non-economic losses. If a jury believes the responsible party’s negligence was particularly egregious, punitive damages may be awarded.
