What Types of Cases Do Personal Injury Attorneys Handle?

Personal injury lawyers handle many types of negligence cases that involve trucking accidents, car accidents, aviation accidents, wrongful death cases, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, legal malpractice, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, child daycare negligence, and other types of negligence cases. Negligence happens when someone doesn't exercise reasonable care to avoid causing bodily injury or loss to another person. Thus, negligence occurs when one individual carelessly injures another.

For example, in a Georgia motor vehicle accident or truck accident, negligence occurs when the at-fault driver carelessly operates a motor vehicle and causes property damage or physical injury to another. In a Georgia premises liability case, negligence occurs when a premises owner neglects to maintain his or her premises, such that the premises cause personal injury to another person through a slip and fall or trip and fall incident. In medical negligence or medical malpractice cases, negligence happens when a medical professional doesn't provide the standard of medical care that a reasonably prudent medical staff would have provided under similar circumstances.

Further, a product liability case occurs when a manufacturer places faulty products into the stream of commerce, which causes harm to consumers. In these scenarios, it's essential to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to negotiate the potential claim and file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Alternately, an intentional tort arises where a person intentionally causes bodily injury to another. For instance, an auto accident is simply an accident. In a car accident claim, there's no intent to harm you, only negligence by the at-fault driver that injures you or causes property damage. However, an intentional tort arises when a driver intentionally hits another vehicle, or batters or assaults another person. Sometimes, businesses are held liable, especially when their employee intentionally touches, strikes, or batters a customer. Further, medical providers are liable where an incompetent medical professional injures a patient.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of negligence or an intentional tort, call our Marks Law Group today for a free case evaluation. We represent victims of intentional torts and negligence on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don't have to pay us unless we win your case. 

What Damages Can I Recover in Personal Injury Claims in DeKalb County, Georgia?

There are three types of financial damages you can recover in a bodily injury claim:

  1. Economic Damages: These include your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, property damage, and funeral and/or burial expenses. These are calculable damages, which you can easily determine using your medical records, medical bills, and receipts.
  2. Non-Economic Damages: These include damages for your pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and emotional distress. There is no concrete dollar amount for these financial losses; they are very subjective.
  3. Punitive Damages: These damages punish the at-fault party, hoping this person and/or entity won't engage in reckless behavior again. Punitive damages are rare, though our personal injury firm has successfully obtained punitive damages for many accident victims over the years.

Further, it's essential to note that Georgia is a comparative negligence state. Thus, the amount you can collect in financial damages may depend on your role in the incident which injured you. Thus, it's crucial that you never admit to liability: not at the actual accident scene, not when you were using a defective product, not if you suffered a work-related injury–never. Instead, contact an experienced injury attorney and tell him or her what happened to you and how, and he or she will advise you about your next steps, and which legal options are available to you.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Injury Claims in Stonecrest, Georgia?

Typically, you only have two years from the day you sustained bodily harm or the day you realized you were injured, to file your claim. However, there are a few exceptions to this deadline:

  • You must file loss of reputation within one year, and
  • You must file a loss of consortium, or wrongful death, claim within four years.
