Proving Negligence in Injury Claims
Our team of dedicated attorneys have the knowledge and skill necessary to win cases. We know what it takes to prove that our clients have endured undue suffering and deserve to be compensated for their damages. In most personal injury claims, the governing concept is known as negligence. This is based on the notion that every human has a responsibility to take any and all reasonable measures to avoid causing harm to others.
When someone violates this notion and acts in a manner that is reckless or careless and disregards the safety of those around them, this is considered negligence. If such actions resulted in an accident that caused injury, he or she is typically responsible for any damages that were caused. Thus to prove a personal injury claim, your lawyer has to show evidence that the defendant’s negligent actions directly or proximately caused your injur

“How much is my claim worth?”
When you bring your case to our firm, we will conduct thorough and extensive investigations into the circumstances of your incident and into the scope and severity of your damages in order to fight for every dollar that you deserve.
No formula is going to exactly estimate your damages, since there are forms of suffering which you cannot place a monetary value upon. In these cases, it is standard to use a kind of multiplier so that victims are compensated for the emotional damages they have been forced to endure.
The following factors can affect the amount of compensation you are entitled to:
- The severity of the injury
- The permanency of the injury
- Disruptions to your daily life
- The length of recovery time needed
- Whether or not your injuries were treated by a doctor
- Your credibility and the credibility of the defendant
- Whether or not medication was prescribed for continual treatment
Furthermore, it is important to note that a victim’s own actions leading up to an accident can affect the amount of compensation that you can receive. Georgia’s negligence laws allows for the defense of modified comparative fault. This means that a plaintiff can only recover monetary damages in amounting to the total damages minus the percentage of their own liability.
That is to say that if a plaintiff is determined to have contributed to 25% of the fault for the accident, he or she can only recover 75% of the total damages. Additionally, under Georgia laws, plaintiffs determined to be more than 50% at fault cannot recover damages at all.

You Only Have 2 Years to File Your Claim
Regardless of the type of accident you have been injured in, you must keep in mind that Georgia law places a limitation on the amount of time that you have to file a claim. There is a two-year deadline, called a statute of limitations, which mandates that personal injury claims or wrongful death claims must be filed within that time-frame. Our firm is here to make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve, regardless of what your accident involves and who was responsible.
