Between car crashes, falls, and other accidents, approximately 214,000 people lose their lives each year, 2.8 million are hospitalized with injuries, and 27.6 million are treated in the emergency department. (Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015).

If you are one of the people who has been harmed, you understand that these numbers are much more than statistics. If you’re seeking justice after an accident, you want a lawyer who understands this, as well. Fortunately, Pritchard Injury Firm has an empathetic legal team that knows exactly what you’re going through.

What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law, or “tort law,” is a legal field that seeks to right civil wrongs known as torts. A tort is any “act or omission that gives rise to injury or harm to another.” Typically, torts are the results of negligence, which is a failure to behave with a reasonable duty of care.

When you sue someone for a tort, you become a plaintiff, or “a person who brings a case against another in a court of law,” and the person you sue becomes the defendant, or the person being sued. As the plaintiff, you will have to prove negligence to win your case.

To prove negligence, you must show:

  1. The defendant owed you a duty of care
  2. The defendant breached this duty
  3. You were hurt
  4. Your injury or loss is a result of the defendant’s breach

In some cases, proving negligence is straightforward, but others will prove more challenging. At Pritchard Injury Firm, we prioritize our clients, so we will do what it takes to maximize your chances of a successful result.

Why File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

After an accident, taking legal action might be the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, injuries come with unavoidable financial realities, and you may not be able to handle them on your own. Further, if someone else caused your accident, you should not have to cope with the consequences alone.

A successful personal injury claim results in damages, which can help you afford:

  • Present and future medical bills
  • The costs of rehabilitative care
  • Missed wages
  • Property damage
  • Changes to your earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

Our firm can help you pursue everything you deserve, as long as you file sooner rather than later and in accordance with the statute of limitations. In Georgia, you only have 2 years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to do so, you can lose your right to legal action entirely.

What Are the Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits?

A legal dispute between two different parties regarding an accident which resulted in injuries is called a personal injury lawsuit.

The two categories include:

  • Formal Lawsuit: This includes a civil complaint that is brought to court. A personal injury attorney will represent you and your interests when in court.
  • Informal Settlement: This includes an informal settlement that is created by the two parties, their insurance companies, and their attorneys. It also includes negotiations done by both sides and is concluded with a written legal agreement.

Have you been in an accident? Were you injured? If so, do not hesitate to contact our Cartersville personal injury attorney. We are here to help guide you through the personal injury lawsuit process and make sure your rights are protected. Call today.
