How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Prove Liability

In terms of personal injury, “fault” means that someone was responsible for causing you harm, usually through an act of negligence. Fault will make or break your case. That’s because the other party’s insurance company and legal team will try and downplay their client’s role in the accident, making you seem responsible for an accident that wasn’t your fault.

If your attorney can prove that the other party was more than 50% responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you will be entitled to compensation. If they cannot prove that the other party was more than 50% responsible, you will receive little or no money. That is why it’s imperative to hire an experienced and dedicated attorney.
The Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Rafi Law Firm are committed to helping injured people get back on their feet and regain their lives with proper treatment and equitable compensation.
We must understand our clients in order to serve them well. That’s why the attorneys at Rafi Law work hard to understand all the ways in which injuries change our clients’ lives. We strive to be our clients’ biggest supporters, helping them tell their stories, fighting for justice, and getting them back on their feet.

How To Find The Right Personal Injury Lawyer For Your Needs

The right Atlanta personal injury lawyer will make you feel valued and respected; they should never make you feel like you are an inconvenience to them. At Rafi Law Firm, we know that our clients could have gone anywhere for legal services, but they chose us. We would never do anything to jeopardize that decision, which is why we work hard to make our clients feel comfortable, welcome, and respected.

Cost of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Because we are paid on a contingency basis, you can rest assured that we’ll do everything in our power to win your case. Other attorneys may treat you like a paycheck, but we treat you like a member of the team. You play an active role in your case. Rafi shares every client’s goals of obtaining justice and recovering the money they need to heal.

We Prepare Every Case For Trial

Defense lawyers and insurance companies know which personal injury lawyers will take cases to trial if their clients are not treated fairly. On the other hand, they know which lawyers will roll over and settle for less because they do not have the knowledge, skills, or desire to try cases. When defense lawyers and insurance companies learn that Rafi Law Firm is on the case, they know we will demand justice and maximum compensation.

Don’t Miss the Deadline to File Your Claim

In Georgia, injured parties must file their claim within two years of the date of the accident. The purpose of this deadline or “statute of limitations” is to ensure that convictions are based upon relevant evidence that has not deteriorated with time. The countdown begins on the date of your accident, not the week or month after. It’s important that you meet this deadline because you will not be able to sue the same person for the same reason ever again.

Possible Damages You Can Claim

“Damages” are the financial, mental, and emotional loses that you experienced as a direct result of your injury. They generally fall into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are those that come with the “paper trial” of bills, invoices, or receipts. They are easily calculatable and include:

Past and future medical expenses

Loss of past and
future earnings

Cost to repair or
replace property

Loss of employment or business opportunities

Personal Injury Questions & Answers

Why do I need an Atlanta personal injury lawyer?

It’s seldom a good idea to handle your personal injury case on your own. If you do, the other party’s lawyer and insurance company are much more likely to take advantage of you and not give you anywhere near the amount of money that you need.

If you suffered any kind of severe injury, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer can be invaluable in seeking the compensation you deserve. Your lawyer will be experienced with similar injuries and will speak with your doctors and medical team to get an idea of how much your prognosis will cost in the future.

Plus, they’ll make you lose out on lots of money that you may not yet even know you’ll need.

A personal injury lawyer can also collect evidence and discover who caused the accident. After all, they are expert investigators.

Of course, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer will also prevent the other party’s insurance company from compromising your case. Insurance companies are sneaky, and if you answer their call without an attorney present, they may ask you questions or get you to make a statement that could put the blame on you.

Should I call the police at the scene of a personal injury ?

Yes, you should call the police if someone, including yourself, has been injured. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and wouldn’t you rather find out that you didn’t need to call the police than wish you had


Although police reports cannot be used in court as evidence, they are invaluable pieces of evidence in the insurance claims process. Insurance adjusters look to these reports to assign fault, and without one, the process will likely take much longer and be more difficult.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after personal injury?

The statute of limitations, or deadline, to file a lawsuit is two years in the state of Georgia. The countdown begins on the date of your accident, not the week or month after. It’s important that you meet this deadline because you will not be able to sue the same person for the same reason ever again.


If you have questions about Georgia’s statute of limitations, call Rafi Law Firm at (404) 948-3311.

What do I do when an insurance company calls?

First of all, let’s make this clear: you are not required to speak with the other party’s insurance company. If they say that you are, they’re lying and you should hang up immediately.


Of course, you must contact your own insurance company after being in an accident, but that’s another story.


If you feel like you must, say as little as possible while still being polite. Remember that anything you say could be used against you in your claim, which means your case could be compromised and you won’t receive compensation.


You should avoid saying things like, “I’m fine,” “It wasn’t that serious,” or “My injuries aren’t that bad” when speaking with the other party’s insurance. You should only answer the question being asked and never volunteer information, and never agree to have your statement recorded.


If you already have a lawyer when the other party’s insurance calls you, tell them to speak with your lawyer. If you don’t, tell them you’ll call them back when you have a lawyer present, and then hire one as soon as possible.

What is considered a wrongful death in Georgia?

The state of Georgia defines wrongful death as the death of a person caused by “negligent, reckless, intentional, or criminal” acts of another person or entity.

Negligence usually means that one party failed to use “reasonable care” when there is a duty to do so. For example, running a red light and hitting another car can be seen as an act of negligence, since every driver has a duty to follow traffic laws.

If your loved one was killed in an accident that you suspect was caused by negligence, contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney at Rafi Law Firm today. We’re here to help clients just like you.

Our Atlanta Personal Injury
Lawyers Are Here To Help

We’re a personal injury firm, but we’re also in the customer service business. Our clients grant us the privilege of representing them, and we never take that for granted. There are plenty of qualified personal injury attorneys in Atlanta, but two things separate us from the rest: relationships and results.

Personal Injury Lawsuit Process

Once the details of your case are sorted, your attorney will draft a demand letter to your insurance company. Demand letters usually include details like:

• How and where the incident occurred

• Damages you’ve already incurred

• Demand for compensation

Your personal injury lawyer will then send the demand letter to the insurance company on your behalf. If you’re worried that insurance will just ignore the letter, don’t – insurers typically respond within 30 days.

If you’ve ever dealt with insurance before, you probably know what’s coming next – the insurance company will respond to your demand letter by either accepting or denying the claim. If accepted, they’ll usually “offer” a figure that is much lower than is needed. This is where your Atlanta personal injury lawyer will step in and argue for full compensation on your behalf. When presented with findings of the investigation and evidence, insurance will likely accept your demand, but not always.

If insurance continues to devalue your claim, your personal injury attorney will take the case to trial. Rafi Law Firm prepares every case for trial because it’s usually the best way to show the insurance company that we’re not messing around. We will stand up for you and argue in court for what you deserve.
