Injury Case Timeline

1

If you are in pain when you contact our office, our first objective is to help you reduce that pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. We work with some of the best physicians and specialists in metro Atlanta to treat our clients’ injuries, with or without health insurance. Our professional reputation encourages doctors to treat our clients. The severity of our client’s injuries will determine the length of treatment.

2

During the treatment phase of a client’s care our office gathers insurance information, evidence, and any other information necessary to pursue our client’s claim. The client will focus on obtaining medical treatment and communicating with their physicians, while we handle all the administrative tasks. Once we have all the relevant information we contact the client to discuss it. It is typical that this process takes 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the case.

3

Once our client has fully recovered we send a Demand to the defendant’s insurance company. The Demand will explain why the defendant is liable to our client, what our client’s injuries are, and what amount is sufficient to properly compensate our client’s injuries and losses.

FAQ's

How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?
If you have been injured by someone else due to their negligent actions, they are legally obligated for any damages you sustained. As the plaintiff in a personal injury case, the burden of proof is your responsibility. This means you must prove your injuries were caused by the defendant's reckless actions or negligence. You can schedule a free consultation with an attorney at our firm where we will review the details of your case, your medical bills, and any other pertinent information surrounding your injury, and then advise you on your options moving forward, and how we can help you.
How Long Will it Take to Resolve an Injury Claim?
Only about 5% of personal injury cases result in a trial. The average injury claim ends when the plaintiff and defendant agree upon a settlement amount. The time that it can take to reach this settlement is difficult to predict and can vary depending on many factors that affect each case uniquely. Typically, a claim that involves more serious injuries and a large amount of money will take longer to settle because the insurer will try to pay as little as they can. Liability can also result in how long a case will ultimately take to settle. Having the help of an attorney can often motivate an insurer to provide a fair offer earlier in the process.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

Personal injury lawyers offer their clients legal counsel about their case and represent their best interests during settlement negotiations and, if necessary, at trial. We also do a lot of  behind the scenes work that you might not be aware of, including:

  • Communicating with all insurance companies involved in the claim on your behalf
  • Helping make sure you find the right doctors and rehabilitation centers for your injury
  • If your vehicle was involved, ensuring any rental or transportation services will be covered
  • Reviewing all related medical files and documentation, to ensure both all parties have up-to-date information about your total damages
  • Reviewing studies and research conducted by experts in the field in regard to defective products, medical treatment, roadway design, business safety violations, etc.
  • Compiling evidence and documents to help prove liability by another person or entity
  • Conducting discovery, which includes deposing witnesses and gathering evidence from the defense.
What Is My Injury Claim Worth?
There are many factors that affect the value of an injury claim. It depends on what happened, the type of injuries sustained, the cost of any medical treatment, how liable all parties involved are found to be, and lost wages if you have to take time off work to recover or cannot continue working your current job. For example, a serious injury like head trauma from a car accident will typically result in a larger settlement than a broken leg from a slip and fall.
How Long Do I Have to File an Injury Claim in Georgia?
There are laws that set a time limit known as the “statute of limitations,” which set the date that you have to file a personal injury case and legally serve the defendant. The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury or wrongful death case in Georgia is generally 2 years from the day the injury occurred. There are some exceptions that extend this time frame, like if the injured party was under 18. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better your case will be. They will have more time to collect all of the necessary medical documents, get relevant evidence like CCTV footage, and other steps that strengthen your claim which can take time. Your lawyer will need time to build your case, properly prove all damages you sustained, and settle your case before the statute of limitations expires.

What Should I Bring to a Consultation With an Injury Lawyer?

When meeting with a lawyer to determine if you would like them to handle your case you should bring a few documents to help them fully evaluate your situation. You should bring:

  • Copies of any relevant insurance policies
  • The most recent copy of your medical records
  • A copy of the police report if one was filed
  • A copy of workplace injury reports if it occurred on the job
  • Copies of pay stubs and proof of time you had to take off work if applicable
  • The names and contact information of any doctors who have treated you
  • Copies of all medical bills you have received
  • Any photographic evidence of the scene the injury happened, and pictures of the injury

If you do not have access to all of this information, we can help you get what you do not have. Bring as much of it as you can to the consultation and we can handle the rest if you chose to work with us.
