Answers to Personal Injury FAQ:

Q. Do I need to hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?

While you are not required by law to have a lawyer represent you in your personal injury case- your success rate goes up significantly when you have a trained attorney on your side who can help present the facts of your case in a compelling manner. Additionally, in the case of serious injuries, when you have a lawyer representing your case this allows you to focus on recovery, rather than your lawsuit.

Q. What is the average personal injury claim settlement?

The average amount of compensation for personal injury cases can range from $3,000 to $75,000, but this ultimately depends on what type of claim your are filing.(Research conducted by Martindale-Nolo.)

Q. How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?

Again, the amount of time it takes to reach a settlement varies from case to case. Your personal injury lawsuit may take anywhere from several months to several years. Contact our office today to discuss your situation with us!

Q. Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me?

No! In fact, we encourage you to discuss your injury and your situation with a skilled injury lawyer before giving either your insurance company (or someone else's) a final answer regarding settlement amounts. Until you have considered every angle, you can't be sure that you're receiving fair compensation.

Q. Is there a time limit for filing an injury lawsuit?

Yes. This law is referred to as the Statute of Limitations, and it typically varies from state to state. In Georgia, you are allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit for up to 2 years after the date of your injury (Georgia Code section 9-3-33). If you don't file in time, your case will usually be dismissed.

What Kind of Damages Can I Receive for my Personal Injury Claim?

As your representation, we seek the maximum amount of compensation possible to help you to fully recover from your injuries and move on with your life.

Some of the available damages we pursue include:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost income and opportunity
  • Permanent disability
  • Loss of consortium for clients who lost their spouses
  • Pain and suffering

We may also seek punitive damages when the circumstances of your case allow it.

How Does the Personal Injury Lawsuit Process Work?

As your personal injury lawyers, we will help guide you step by step through the lawsuit process. In general, these are the steps that make up that process:

  • You are injured and hire a lawyer to represent you
  • We will examine your case and determine whether or not to go forward with it
  • We will help you file and serve a complaint against the defendant (the person responsible for your injury)
  • We will begin the pre-trial litigation process in which we will gather evidence and build your case, while also dealing with the defendant and their attorney
  • If the defendant offers a fair settlement we will walk through the negotiation and settlement process with you
  • If the defendant refuses to settle or offer a fair settlement, we will take your case to court and fight for your fair compensation
