Who’s liable for my injury?
One of the most critical services we provide is identifying all at-fault parties in your case. There may be multiple sources for compensation, and we will explore all of them for you.
In car accidents, it may seem clear who is at fault. However, there may be additional drivers liable for your crash. We will find them and hold them accountable.
Property owners or managers
Property owners, managers, or operators who neglect their duty of care to the public must be brought to justice.
Failing to maintain safe conditions at a park, on the public streets, or in other areas managed by government agencies can cause harm to you or your family.
Doctors or other medical professionals
Medical malpractice is one of the most challenging fields to win a case successfully. However, our personal injury attorneys will diligently identify and hold all responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
Other parties may be liable.
We review all available evidence to ensure we’ve found everyone who could have played a part in your injury. Our team will examine how they are to blame.
How do our Kennesaw personal injury attorneys prove liability?
To successfully receive a favorable settlement, your attorney must prove four elements of negligence to establish liability:
1. Duty of care
Drivers, property owners, and others owe a duty of care to those around them. This means we act as a reasonable person to avoid harming others. Establishing the duty of care shows the defendant should have acted differently to protect you.
2. Breach of duty
Failing to uphold the duty of care is considered a breach. Your attorney should demonstrate how the liable party failed and how it put you and others at risk of harm.
Your lawyer must show a link between how the at-fault party failed in their duty and your injuries. It is crucial to establish this connection so you can claim compensation for your losses.
Your lawyer will present documentation supporting your demand for repayment of economic and non-economic damages that resulted from your injuries.
What’s the personal injury lawsuit process?
Each case may vary slightly, but the general process of filing a personal injury lawsuit is as follows.
1. Contact the defendant(s)
Once we have evidence of the other party’s liability, we will notify them you are filing a claim against them.
2. Gather evidence
Our team will collect all relevant evidence demonstrating the liable party’s contribution to your injury. We also put together materials showing how you were harmed and the financial losses you have and will suffer.
3. Negotiate out of court
We start by trying to settle without the expense and time of going to trial. Negotiations can take days or weeks until we reach an agreement that meets your needs.
4. Initiate court proceedings
If negotiations are not fruitful, we will prepare and file a formal legal action with the appropriate court.
Why do I need to go to the doctor?
Getting medically evaluated not only protects you from “silent injuries” that could severely hurt or kill you, but it also creates a record of your condition. Doing this within 24-48 hours of the incident gives you and your Kennesaw personal injury attorney a more robust standing when negotiating with insurance companies.
They will claim you were hurt by something else. You have a more robust case when you have a definitive medical record that connects your injuries to the defendant’s negligence.
Our hard work pays off for clients.
Our personal injury attorneys conduct a detailed investigation to understand all aspects of your case. We help you get the compensation you deserve and need so you can recover from your injuries. We don’t let insurance companies reduce your claim or deny payment. Our team negotiates fiercely to reach the proper settlement on your behalf.
As a respected Kennesaw personal injury law firm, we are proud of our record of success for past clients. We have put our nearly two decades of experience to work, securing the following results:
- Pedestrian accident – $1.6 million recovery
- Motorcycle accident – $1 million recovery
- Tractor-trailer accident – $3 million recovery
- Passenger car accident – $637,000 recovery
Every case is different, and these amounts do not impact what we can recover for you. However, rest assured that your Kennesaw personal injury attorney will try to maximize your compensation.
How much does it cost to hire a Kennesaw personal injury lawyer?
When you are already facing medical bills and potentially lost income while you heal, you may worry about how you can afford an attorney. We make it easy for you to get started with a free consultation. We give you advice and honestly assess whether your claim is valid.
Our personal injury attorneys in Kennesaw don’t demand payment upfront. Our contingency fee structure means we only get paid when we secure a settlement for you. If we don’t win, you don’t pay. It’s as simple as that.
How long do I have to file a claim?
For most personal injury cases in Georgia, the statute of limitations is only two years from the date you were hurt. This can happen in the blink of an eye when negotiating with insurance companies. You must gather evidence and build a case with your lawyer before the deadline or lose the chance to recover financial relief.
Are there exceptions to the rule in Georgia?
Minors have until the age of 18 to file a claim. There are exceptions for medical malpractice or if you are filing against a government agency.
What damages can I claim?
Many overlook the wide range of damages they can seek in a personal injury claim.
Losses that can be quantified with a receipt are considered economic damages. These include:
- Your medical bills and hospital bills
- Costs for rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Prescription and over-the-counter medication expenses
- Bills for specialized care
- Lost wages and benefits from your job
- Damage to your property, such as a car, computer, clothing, or phone
Non-economic (pain and suffering) damages
Non-economic damages are more subjective, repaying you for how your life has changed mentally and emotionally. These can include:
- Developing anxiety or depression after the incident
- Your emotional distress during and after the injury
- The way you no longer enjoy hobbies, work, or other activities
- Isolation and shame you experience if you are scarred or disfigured
- Your physical, emotional, and psychological pain and suffering
- The adjustments you must make if you are permanently disabled
- The effect on your personal and professional reputations
What should I look for in an experienced personal injury attorney?
Look for these qualities when selecting the right Kennesaw personal injury attorney to represent you:
- Experience with your specific injury
- Track record
- Trustworthy reputation
- Trial experience
- Personal compatibility
