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 personal injury law firm in Cartersville can help you pursue everything you deserve, as long as you file sooner rather than later. Waiting too long to file a claim may hurt your chances of a successful outcome.

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.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

Personal injury lawyers play a pivotal role in advocating for justice, offering legal expertise, and ensuring that individuals receive fair compensation for the harm they've endured.

  • Legal Investigation and Assessment: Personal injury lawyers conduct comprehensive investigations and gather evidence to evaluate the merits of a case. This step helps clients make informed decisions about pursuing legal action.
  • Legal Counsel and Negotiations: Offering vital legal guidance, personal injury lawyers counsel clients on their rights and navigate negotiations with insurance companies or opposing parties. They aim to secure a fair settlement that encompasses medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
  • Litigation and Representation: In cases where settlements are elusive, personal injury lawyers are prepared to go to court. They file legal documents, present arguments, and represent clients during trials, leveraging their legal expertise to build compelling cases.
  • Client Support and Empathy: Beyond legal proceedings, personal injury lawyers provide emotional support to clients, empathizing with their pain and guiding them through the challenging legal process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Georgia?

In Georgia, you only have two 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.

    How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney in Georgia Cost?

    In Georgia, personal injury lawyers work for a contingency fee, not a traditional retainier fee. A contingency fee means that your attorney does not get paid unless they recover compensation for your injury. This could be through a jury verdict or as the result of a settlement. The average contingency fee for a personal injury lawyer is 33%. Once your case has been completed, the contingency fee will be taken out of the total amount recovered.
