What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal dispute that typically arises when one person suffers an injury or harm that was caused by an accident or injury and another individual or party may be legally responsible for causing the harm. The responsible party will compensate the person who is injured for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering and more.

How Personal Injury Claims Work

Personal injury claims typically start off with a demand letter from the plaintiff (the injured party seeking compensation from another party that they feel is liable for the harm). The demand letter requests payment for damages. If the insurance company does not pay or they cannot reach a compromise with the plaintiff, then a personal injury lawsuit may begin.

Do You Have Grounds for a Personal Injury Claim?

In Georgia, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim if you were injured and suffered damages due to another person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct.

There are several elements you must prove to bring a claim:

  • The Duty of Care: The first element of a personal injury claim is establishing that another person or party owed you a duty of care. A duty or care is a legal responsibility to act reasonably and take acceptable measures to avoid causing injury to others.
  • Breach of the Duty of Care: Next, you must prove that the person or party who owed you a duty of care failed to uphold it. Typically, proving that the duty of care was breached involves proving that the other person or party acted negligently or wrongfully.
  • Causation: You will also need to prove that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of your injuries and damages. In other words, if the other person or party had not been negligent or acted wrongfully, you would not have been injured or harmed.
  • Damages: Lastly, to bring a personal injury claim, you must establish that you suffered damages due to the other person or party’s breach of the duty of care. Damages can be economic or non-economic and may include things like medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

At Hasty Pope, LLP, our Canton personal injury lawyers can evaluate your potential case to determine if you have grounds for a claim. We often work with a team of investigators and other experts to ascertain how an accident or traumatic event happened, as well as who is liable.

Damages in Personal Injury Claims

The purpose of a personal injury claim is to compensate victims of negligence for their losses. When you are injured or lose a loved one due to someone else’s careless or reckless actions, you are likely to face significant financial consequences in addition to physical and emotional pain and suffering. While nothing can negate the trauma you have been through, a successful personal injury claim can allow you to recover the financial resources you need to obtain medical care, manage everyday expenses, and move forward with your life.

Depending on the specifics of your circumstances, we may be able to help you fight for compensation for the following damages:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Hospitalization
  • Surgeries, physical therapy, and other treatments
  • Future medical expenses
  • Medications and medical equipment/devices
  • Lost income/wages, including future earnings
  • Lost earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Counseling services/therapy
  • In-home care costs
  • Home modifications

In some cases, we may even be able to recover punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages are not meant to compensate you for specific losses but, rather, to punish the at-fault person or party for egregious, willful, and/or wanton negligence.

Aggressive Representation While You Recover

Many victims of accidents are tempted to handle the litigation surrounding their case on their own without the assistance of a personal injury lawyer. This may seem like a bargain on the surface, but in the long run, it regularly proves a total disaster. A respectable attorney understands the legal hoops you will need to jump through, as well as the paperwork and deadlines necessary to file a successful case. At Hasty Pope, LLP, we are dedicated to crafting an effective legal strategy for your particular personal injury case.

With our skill and experience, your case will be stronger than it would be without professional legal assistance. Our lawyers are not afraid of the courtroom and we will not back down from a fight without giving it our all.
