What Does “Personal Injury” Mean?

A personal injury lawsuit is a legal claim that someone injured you and that they owe you something for causing your injuries. Personal injury claims can be for intentional injuries and for injuries caused by negligence. In law, personal injury claims fall under something called “torts.” A tort is a wrongdoing that one party does to another.

If an injury was intentional, that means that the defendant set out to hurt you. For example, if a defendant walked up to you and punched you in the face, breaking your nose, you can sue them for the “intentional torts” of assault and battery.

However, the vast majority of personal injury cases are for injuries that are not done on purpose. Instead, the defendant injured you because they were negligent. Legally speaking, a “negligence” tort is based on the claim that the defendant was careless, and their carelessness led to your injuries. Injuries caused by negligence are, by definition, not on purpose. For example, if a driver runs a red light and hits your car, injuring you, that accident would be caused by negligence, not intent.

Personal Injury Claims in Canton, GA

Our personal injury lawyers have a range of experience representing clients who got injured many different ways. Below are some of the claims we can help you with if you were hurt in an accident in or around Canton.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are dangerous and often cause injuries. Even with plentiful safety features, drivers and passengers of struck motor vehicles can get bruised, concussed, suffer broken bones, or a myriad of other injuries.

Pedestrian Accidents

When a car strikes a pedestrian, injuries are likely to be much more serious for the pedestrian. This is because pedestrians are simply not as well protected as people inside cars. It is not uncommon for pedestrians struck by cars and other motor vehicles to require immediate emergency medical care and have a lengthy recovery afterward.

Truck Accidents

Truck crashes can be incredibly dangerous. The situation for drivers of sedans, SUVs, and other commonly owned motor vehicles is very similar to that of a pedestrian being hit by a car. The sheer size and weight difference of the vehicles involved creates a very real chance of serious injury for motorists.

Slip and Fall Injuries

It may not feel like it, but slipping and falling down can lead to debilitating injuries. Depending on the height you fall from, what you fall on, and how you land, you can suffer injuries like broken bones, permanent nerve damage, bruising, or traumatic brain injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a special kind of personal injury lawsuit that deals with injuries caused by medical professionals. If a medical professional is negligent and misdiagnoses an illness, botches a surgery or incorrectly prescribes medication, you can sue them for the injuries they cause.

Medical malpractice lawsuits have some differences from other personal injury lawsuits. For example, there is often a focus on the opinion of “expert witnesses” who work in relevant medical fields and can give their opinion on the issues of the case. If you believe your case falls under the umbrella of medical malpractice, you should speak with our lawyers.

Wrongful Death

Sadly, the reality of serious injuries is that sometimes they lead to the victim passing away. If you are suing on behalf of a loved one who died because of someone else’s negligence, that is called a wrongful death claim. Like medical malpractice, wrongful death lawsuits have some special rules. For example, wrongful death claims can usually only be brought by immediate family members or someone called the “executor,” who manages the deceased’s estate.

How Our Canton, GA Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You

There are many different things our personal injury lawyers can do to help you after you are injured. Attorneys do many more things than just talk to the judge and jury at trial. As a matter of fact, most of a case’s legal work happens before a trial takes place.

At the start of your case, much of our lawyer’s time will be spent collecting evidence from various sources. For example, we can track down medical records and find a police report of your accident if one has been filed. However, we can also get information from the other side through a process called “discovery.” This process helps to ensure that there is an even playing field of facts and that there are no surprises at trial.

Another thing that our lawyers can do is talk to adverse parties on your behalf. During the course of legal proceedings, you will no doubt have to deal with people or entities that are working for the defendant. Instead of dealing with these entities yourself, your lawyers can do it for you. This is a good idea because adverse parties like opposing lawyers or insurance companies may try to twist what you say to be used against you. When our lawyers speak for you, it is more difficult for that to happen.
