If you suffered an injury because of another party’s negligent behavior, get help recovering the compensation you deserve. Call Howe Law at (844) 876-4357 for a free case review.

Benefits of Hiring Our Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers

The stages after a personal injury accident can be difficult to navigate. Victims can suffer devastating physical and psychological consequences. Fortunately, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can provide assistance throughout every stage of the process.

Free Case Review

If you suffered an injury because of another person’s negligence, the first step to take is to schedule a free case review with our Atlanta personal injury lawyers. In this initial consultation, our lawyers will be able to assess the facts and validity of your case. There are four basic elements to every personal injury case. Plaintiffs must satisfy each of the following elements for their case to succeed:

  • The defendant had a duty of care.
  • The defendant breached that duty of care.
  • The plaintiff suffered injuries because of the defendant’s breach of duty.
  • The plaintiff suffered damages as a result of their injuries.

Different types of personal injury claims will incorporate different strategies. However, each case will involve the aforementioned elements.

Collecting Evidence

Proving each element to your personal injury case will involve collecting extensive amounts of evidence. Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can help gather the evidence required to prove your claim. The following are examples of evidence that may be used in your case:

  • Medical records
  • Accident reports
  • Photographs
  • Surveillance videos
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Expert witness testimony
  • Financial documents
  • Insurance documents
  • Medical bills

Furthermore, insurance companies may hire teams of people who will try to gather evidence to disprove your claim. Our attorneys can ease your stress by collecting evidence on your behalf.

Assigning Fault

The next step in your personal injury case will involve determining whom to sue. In some cases, assigning fault is not straightforward. For example, it can be difficult to determine who is liable for an accident caused by a commercial truck driver, the driver or his employer?  In such cases, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can help victims understand who they should sue. Assigning fault is a crucial step in building a successful claim.

Filing a Case

In Atlanta, personal injury plaintiffs will typically have two years from the date of an injury to file a claim. However, you should contact our Atlanta personal injury lawyers as soon as possible after an accident for help filing your case. Waiting to file a lawsuit could cause important evidence to lose its relevance or become lost. Important information can disappear, medical injuries can heal without documentation, and crucial details can be forgotten over time. The sooner our team can begin gathering evidence to support your case, the better your chances are at recovering the compensation you deserve.

Additionally, there are numerous other requirements plaintiffs must satisfy when filing a claim. Such obligations include paying fees, serving defendants, filing a claim in the correct court, attaching supporting documents to your case, and filing a valid claim. Our lawyers can help injured parties ensure they comply with the multitude of requirements for filing a claim.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Communicating with insurance companies can be frustrating. Defendants’ insurers may hire teams of people and implement a variety of strategies when trying to reduce the value of your claim. Furthermore, insurance companies will often attempt to entice low settlement agreements in the aftermath of an accident.

Before reaching a settlement agreement, it is important for injured parties to assess the full extent of their injuries and evaluate the full range of legal options available to them. Accordingly, after sustaining a personal injury, you should not speak with any other party’s insurance company until you have reviewed your case with our experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyers. Our attorneys can help you understand the true value of your claim.

Common Personal Injury Lawsuits in Atlanta

Personal injury lawsuits can arise from any accident where one party was injured because of another party’s negligent conduct. However, certain types of cases occur more frequently than others. The following are common sources of personal injury lawsuits in Atlanta:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Construction site accidents

The legal analyses that apply to your case will likely depend on the type of accident suffered. If you sustained an injury in any type of accident, you may consult with our Atlanta personal injury lawyers and assess your potential claim for free.

Comparative Fault in Atlanta Personal Injury Lawsuits

Another tactic defendants’ insurance companies can employ in personal injury lawsuits is blaming the plaintiff. Under Georgia’s modified comparative fault rules, Atlanta plaintiffs may not recover damages if they are at least 50% at-fault for their own injuries.

Furthermore, damages in Atlanta personal injury lawsuits will be awarded based on portions of fault. If you are considered 20% responsible for an accident and a defendant 80%, you will be liable for 20% the damages while the defendant pays the other 80%. Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can help explain how Georgia’s modified comparative fault rules may apply to your case.

If You Were Injured Because of Another Person’s Negligence in Atlanta, Our Lawyers Can Help

If you suffered an injury because of another party’s negligent behavior, seek assistance from experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyers by calling Howe Law at (844) 876-4357 for a free case review.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

“They made sure that we received all of the medical care...”

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
