Why Should I Hire an Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney?

If you are pursuing a personal injury case, the chances are good that a large, wealthy corporation is on the other side — usually an insurance company. Insurance companies have endless resources to challenge your claim, including teams of attorneys, adjusters, and investigators. You don’t want to go up against such a company by yourself.

Studies have shown that hiring an injury lawyer can result in 3x more compensation than handling a claim oneself. Here’s why you should hire a personal injury lawyer:

  • They will level the playing field. Your attorney provides you with access to your own winning resources. They will handle all aspects of your case and make sure the insurance company treats you fairly.
  • They will help you avoid mistakes. The insurance company will try to get you to make mistakes that hurt your claim. They may try to solicit a recorded statement they can use against you or get you to sign a medical records release to search for preexisting injuries to link to your current injuries. Your lawyer will handle all communications with the insurance company. They will help you navigate your claim and avoid mistakes that could cost you compensation.
  • They will protect you from blame. Insurers love to blame the victim. If they can pin some of the responsibility for the accident on you, they can minimize your payout. Your attorney will protect you from unfounded accusations that you share liability for your accident.
  • They give you time to rest and recover. Your health is the most important thing after an accident. However, it’s hard to focus on your recovery if you’re worried about a personal injury claim. Your lawyer will handle your claim from start to finish and give you time to rest.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases arise after certain accidents and injuries. However, to have a case, you must have been injured by another party — typically due to carelessness or unlawful conduct.

Most personal injury cases are based on negligence, which means a party failed to use reasonable care and injured another person. Examples of negligence-based cases include those involving motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and other incidents.

Some personal injury cases are based on intentional misconduct (also known as an intentional tort). If a party injured you on purpose, such as by assault, you may have a personal injury case.

A third category of personal injury claims involves strict liability. Strict liability cases arise when a party violates certain safety laws or legal standards and injures another person. Product defects and dog bites offer two examples.

The best way to determine whether you have a personal injury case is to contact an experienced attorney. Hammers Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers is here to help you understand your legal options.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

The best way to determine whether you have a personal injury case is to contact an experienced attorney. Hammers Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers is here to help you understand your legal options.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Most personal injury lawyers in Atlanta work on a contingency fee basis. This means their fee is contingent upon the result in your case. Under this structure, if your attorney recovers a settlement or verdict for you, they will take a pre-agreed-upon percentage of your award as payment for the representation. This percentage usually ranges from 33-40%.

However, if your attorney fails to recover compensation, you will not owe them any attorney fees. Contingency fees give injured victims access to quality legal representation at a time when they may be struggling with unexpected accident expenses.

Most injury lawyers also offer free consultations. Contact Hammers Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers today to schedule yours.

What Damages Are Available to Atlanta Accident Victims?

Injured victims in Georgia are typically entitled to two main forms of compensation. Economic damages cover financial losses. Non-economic damages compensate for personal, non-financial losses.

Economic damages can typically be proven with receipts, invoices, and other documentation. They include:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Rehabilitation and/or physical therapy
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages are personal in nature and do not have a direct financial value. They include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety and PTSD
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

Rare cases may qualify for punitive damages, which punish the at-fault party (rather than compensate the victim for losses). Specifically, cases involving intentional misconduct, malice, fraud, or extreme negligence may trigger punitives. Drunk driving cases offer one example.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of your personal injury case will depend on many different factors unique to your injuries and accident. No other case, no matter how similar, can serve as a perfect predictor of your claim’s value.

The following factors will determine how much your case is worth:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The extent of your medical expenses and whether you’ll need care in the future
  • The wages you lost while you recovered and whether you’re earning capacity has been diminished
  • The pain and suffering you experienced
  • Whether you share fault for the accident
  • Available insurance coverages
  • The strength of your evidence

The best way to determine the value of your case is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney in Atlanta.

Hammers Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers can help you track and calculate your damages. We can even bring in experts in finance and medicine to help us assess your more complex losses. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit After an Accident in Georgia?

You won’t have unlimited time to file a lawsuit after an accident. Georgia’s statute of limitations gives you just two years to initiate legal proceedings. The clock typically starts ticking on the date of your accident. If you fail to file a claim within two years of your accident, you will be barred from recovering compensation.

Some cases may have shorter or longer time limits depending on the facts. An experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer can help you identify and understand the deadlines in your case.

What is Negligence and How Do I Prove It?

Negligence is the foundation of most personal injury claims. It means that a party failed to act reasonably in the lead-up to an accident and caused an injury.

To win your negligence case, you will have to prove four elements:

  • Duty – You must show the defendant owed you a legal duty to avoid injuring you. Duties come from the law and/or legal relationships. For example, every Georgia driver has a duty to follow traffic laws and drive reasonably safely.
  • Breach – You must prove the at-fault party violated their duty to you. You will put forth evidence showing they failed to act like a reasonable person in the time leading up to the accident.
  • Causation – You must show that the defendant caused your injury – meaning it would not have happened but for the person’s conduct. You will also have to show that your injuries were foreseeable.
  • Damages – You must prove that you suffered financial losses as a result of your injuries.

If you fail to satisfy even one element, your negligence case will not be successful. Therefore, you need evidence to make your case.

Your lawyer may use the following types of evidence to help you prove your version of events:

  • Accident/police reports
  • Business records
  • Medical records
  • Cell phone records
  • Photographs
  • Video/surveillance footage
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony

Contact Hammers Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers today for help understanding how to prove your negligence claim.

How Long Will My Injury Case Take?

The timeline of your injury case will depend on many variables, including the severity of your injuries. Cases with minor injuries and property damage can settle in a matter of months.

However, cases with moderate to severe injuries can take up to a year or more to resolve. You may need to reach maximum medical improvement before you have an adequate sense of your damages.

Cases that go to court will take the longest to complete. Discovery, hearings, and trials can take a year, and, in some cases, multiple years.

Your injury attorney will work hard to keep your case moving efficiently and work to obtain a prompt resolution.
