Do You Have a Case?
You may have a personal injury case if you can prove that someone else—be it another person, an employer, a business, or government entity—was to blame for your injuries and losses. There are several important things you must prove in order to bring a successful personal injury claim or lawsuit.
To determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim, ask yourself the following:
- Did someone else have a responsibility to act reasonably and avoid actions that could potentially cause you injury or harm?
- Did the other person or party fail to live up to this responsibility, either by acting negligently or wrongfully?
- Were you injured as a result of the other person or party’s negligent, careless, reckless, or wrongful actions?
- Did you sustain measurable damages, such as medical expenses, lost income/wages, and/or pain and suffering?
To successfully bring a personal injury claim against another person or party, you will need to prove each of these elements. Remember, the liable party’s insurance company is not on your side; they may attempt to dispute or deny your claim based on numerous defenses, including by arguing that you were at fault, you had a pre-existing condition, or that some other party other than the insured was to blame.
It is important that you work with a seasoned attorney who can not only help you fight back against the insurance company’s tactics but who can also ensure your rights are protected. At Hasty Pope, LLP, we have a history of success in going up against large insurance companies and major corporations that seek to take advantage of injured individuals and their families. With deep roots in the local community, we are passionate about standing up for the rights of ordinary people and helping them fight for the fair compensation they are owed. If you believe you may have grounds for a personal injury case, contact us right away to learn how we can help during a free, no-obligation consultation.
How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia?
As in other states, there is a statute of limitations on personal injury claims in Georgia. This means you must file your claim within a specific timeframe or risk it being tossed out. If you fail to bring your claim in the designated timeframe, you will almost certainly be unable to collect compensation for any damages you sustained due to the accident.
In most personal injury cases in Georgia, you have two years from the date of the accident/injury to bring a claim. However, the proverbial clock may not begin ticking until the date on which you discovered or reasonably should have discovered your injury. This is often the case in claims involving medical malpractice or occupational illness, when symptoms of an injury or disease may not be immediately apparent.
If you wish to bring a claim or lawsuit against a city, municipality, or state government, you will need to abide by a different set of rules, including strict deadlines on when to notify the entity you wish to sue and how long you have to bring your lawsuit. If you believe you may have a case against a government entity, reach out to our team right away to avoid missing any important deadlines.
