To decide whether you might have a personal injury case, in the first place you must have suffered an injury to either yourself or your property. This does not necessarily have to mean a physical injury, as it could be damage to your reputation, or invasion of privacy or even some kind of emotional distress. The second thing to bear in mind is that whatever happened must have been the fault of someone else and not your own fault.
Most personal injury claims are settled out of court in Atlanta, as they are usually settled with the insurance company of the person or business who was “at fault” for your injury or loss. This is the best route for both sides as a trial can be lengthy and expensive. If, however the case cannot be settled out of court then it is necessary to have a trial. Either way, you should contact an attorney for help settling any significant personal injury case.
The amount your case will be worth depends on such a large number of factors including what happened to you, the amount of any medical bills, if you lost any income and how much and how long the injury will last. It is not normally possible to calculate the exact amount until any medical treatment has been completed or at least the future medical expenses can be accurately calculated. This will not only affect the amount of the claim but also how long it will take for you to receive the money. You should however bear in mind that in the state of Georgia you only have two years from the date of the incident in order to file a personal injury claim.
