Georgia personal injury law allows victims of negligence and wrongdoing to pursue justice and financial compensation for their losses by filing a lawsuit against the at-fault person or party. In other words, if you were injured because someone else was careless, reckless, or acted unlawfully, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other damages.

The Personal Injury Claims Process

There are several important things you must do in order to file a personal injury claim in Macon or anywhere in Georgia. First and foremost, you must prove that another person/party owed you a duty of care and that they failed to uphold this duty of care. You must also prove that you were injured as a result and that you suffered measurable damages.

For example, all motorists have a duty of care to others on the road—they must follow all traffic laws and take reasonable actions to prevent accidents. A motorist who drives while drunk or uses a cell phone while driving is acting negligently and putting others at risk. If the motorist causes a car accident, anyone injured in the crash could file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver.

Determining eligibility is the first step in filing a personal injury claim. Following this, our attorneys can assist you with the following:

  • Filing and serving a complaint against the at-fault party (known as the defendant)
  • Gathering and analyzing evidence, including medical records, accident reports, and more
  • Negotiating with the at-fault party’s insurance provider to recover a fair settlement
  • Taking your case to trial if the liable insurance company refuses to settle

Throughout the process, our team will provide you with updates and consistent communication regarding your case. We are always available to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.
