Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers

Those who were injured because of another person’s negligent behavior may be awarded monetary damages in a personal injury lawsuit. Victims of personal injuries can endure serious physical and mental hardship. Financial compensation serves to relieve victims’ stress and aid their recovery process.

However, defendants and their insurance companies may dispute various aspects of a claim. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help gather evidence and fight insurance companies in your case. The assistance of our experienced attorneys can also be highly beneficial when negotiating with opposing counsel.

If you have been injured because of another person’s negligent acts, seek assistance from experienced Georgia personal injury lawyers by calling Howe Law at (844) 876-4357 for a free case review.

Elements of Personal Injury Cases in Georgia

Every personal injury case is unique. However, a similar legal analysis will apply to most claims. There are four general elements that must be satisfied in order to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit. Plaintiffs must prove each of the following:

  • 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 because of their injuries.

The work required to establish each element of a personal injury case can be complicated and tiresome. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help injured parties gather evidence and assess the validity of their claim.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Georgia

Personal injury lawsuits can be filed for any type of injury suffered as a result of another person or entity’s actions or inactions. Personal injury claims are typically based on claims of negligence. In other words, defendants in personal injury cases are generally charged with carelessness or the disregard of others’ safety. There are many forms of negligence that may give rise to personal injury lawsuits. The following are common types of personal injury cases filed in Georgia:

Auto Accident Cases

Auto accident cases are a very common type of personal injury case in Georgia. Drivers are required to exercise care and obey traffic laws on public roads. Negligent drivers will be held liable for damages they cause. The following are examples of negligent conduct frequently committed by motorists in Georgia:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Tailgating
  • Improper lane changes
  • Ignoring traffic signs

There are many other forms of careless conduct that may lead to auto accidents. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help recover damages suffered because of another driver’s negligent behavior.

Construction Site Accident Cases

Construction sites are dangerous places where serious accidents can occur. Construction site accidents can cause serious injuries to both construction workers and pedestrians near the site. These accidents can come in many forms. The following are common causes of injuries on Georgia construction sites:

  • Misuse of tools
  • Falling objects
  • Electrical accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Fires and explosions
  • Improper use of safety restraints
  • Welding accidents

If you suffered an injury in a construction site accident because of another contractor or manufacturer’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. However, in most cases, you may not bring a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. Accepting Workers’ Compensation benefits typically means you cannot bring a personal injury claim against your employer for a workplace injury. Construction site accident victims can contact our Georgia personal injury lawyers for help understanding the legal options available to them.

Motorcycle Accident Cases

Motorcycle accidents are also a common source of personal injury claims in Georgia. Riding a motorcycle can be exhilarating, but serious injuries typically occur in motorcycle accident cases. Bikers are more exposed than those driving cars. Therefore, motorcycle accident victims are more likely to suffer catastrophic harm such as brain injuries, broken bones, burns, scarring, and other permanent injuries. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help refer appropriate treatment and pursue compensation for motorcycle accident victims.

Truck Accident Cases

Furthermore, truck accidents frequently lead to personal injury cases in Georgia. Unfortunately, because of the vehicles’ size, accidents involving large trucks also pose a great danger to victims. However, commercial truck drivers often carry a high amount of insurance coverage. If you were injured because of a truck driver’s negligence, our experienced Georgia personal injury lawyers can help recover monetary damages.

Slip and Fall Accident Cases

Lastly, slip and fall accidents are another common source of personal injury claims in Georgia. Property owners and managers are responsible for keeping their premises safe for visitors. This responsibility can extend to you whether you are a grocery shopper at the store, an employee visiting an office building, or a guest at someone else’s apartment. You may recover compensation for injuries suffered because a property owner did not maintain their premises. The following are common causes of slip and fall injuries:

  • Slippery or wet floors
  • Wet or icy sidewalks
  • Narrow staircases
  • Uneven steps
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Loose, moving carpet or rugs
  • Unmarked holes, objects, or other hazards

If you were injured because of a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help build your case.

Time Limits to File Personal Injury Cases in Georgia

Time limits to file lawsuits are established by states’ statutes of limitations. In Georgia, plaintiffs typically have two years from the date of their injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, if you were injured because of another party’s negligent behavior, you should not wait to file a claim. Important evidence becomes hard to collect over time. For instance, important records are lost, witnesses forget details, and medical injuries heal without documentation. Accordingly, you should contact our Georgia personal injury lawyers as soon as possible after an accident.

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

If you have been injured because of another person’s negligent conduct, our Georgia personal injury lawyers can help recover the compensation you deserve. Call Howe Law today 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.
