What Types of Personal Injury Cases Do You Handle?

At Spaulding Injury Law, we fight to protect the rights and interests of injured victims throughout the Atlanta area. We help innocent persons who have been harmed through no fault of their own. We have extensive experience handling all types of personal injury claims, including:

Traffic Collisions. Accidents involving cars, trucks, bikes, boats, and other vehicles are among the most popular types in the United States. These personal injury cases also result from negligence on the part of another motorist. Whatever the cause or who was responsible, such incidents can have a life-long effect. Even injuries that might at the time seem like they’re not that serious might need long-term medical treatment.

Slip & Fall Accidents. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on land owned by another individual or company in Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation.

Wrongful Death. Losing a loved one is a traumatic experience, especially if you find out your loved one was killed because of the negligent acts of a careless individual. Fortunately, you may be able to pursue legal action against the at-fault party and hold them responsible.

Pedestrian Accidents. The attorneys at Spaulding Injury Law hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. If you or someone you know was involved in an accident as a pedestrian, we may be able to help. We can help you take legal action against the driver who caused the accident and injuries.

Animal Bites & Attacks. Animal attacks can be a serious medical concern. If you’re injured by a dog or by another animal, it’s imperative to discuss your case with a personal injury attorney.

No matter what caused your injuries, the personal injury attorneys of Spaulding Injury Law are here. We’ll help you secure the financial recovery and justice that you need and deserve.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

We help recover the compensation you deserve by doing the hard work so you don’t have to.

Evaluate your claim for free. We recognize that you may have many questions about your claim and how to pursue compensation. We offer no-obligation consultations that will help you understand your rights and options. We’ll explain how we can maximize the value of your claim.

Investigate. We will secure all the relevant evidence in your claim. That will allow us to persuasively explain how your accident occurred and who was at fault for your injuries. Where necessary, we will work with experts who can evaluate and explain your claim.

Identify all liable parties. We will identify all parties who share legal liability for your injuries. Our main priority will be to identify the person or persons who caused your accident. We will also identify employers who have vicarious liability. We may show that your injuries were caused by defective products or dangerous conditions on a property. We will also identify all available sources of compensation, such as insurance policies. Our goal is to ensure that you receive a full financial recovery.

Document your losses. With your help, we will document your losses so that you are fully compensated for them. We will collect records of your medical treatment, lost wages, or loss of income.

Demand maximum compensation. We will aggressively negotiate on your behalf with the insurance companies and defense law firms. We want to make certain you get full and fair compensation. We will also prepare to take your case to court, if necessary, for your best chance at maximum financial recovery.

This is a challenging time in your life. We will do everything in our power to help you recover what you’re owed.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The damages in a personal injury claim can include:

Medical expenses. A personal injury claim will almost always include the cost of medical care associated with injuries. This would include hospital and doctor’s bills, surgery, prescription medication, therapy, long-term care, or even home alterations.

Lost wages. If your salary has been impacted as the result of an accident, you may be entitled to compensation. This compensation could include future wages lost which are referred to as “loss of earning capacity”.

Pain and suffering. This includes the physical and emotional anguish and distress caused by your injuries.

Lost quality of life. You may lose quality of life from permanent disfigurement or disability, the inability to participate in activities you enjoyed prior to your injuries, or the inability to perform normal tasks of daily living.

Loss of consortium. These damages typically relate to the impact the injuries have on the plaintiff’s relationship with their spouse—the loss of companionship or the inability to maintain a relationship.

You can also recover compensation for damaged property. For example, if you were involved in a car crash, you may be entitled to the repair costs of your vehicle or the cash value of your vehicle if it was totaled.

 

Punitive Damages

In rare circumstances, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are not meant to compensate for a loss that you have incurred. Instead, punitive damages punish the at-fault party for their neglectful behavior.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

Under Georgia law, a lawsuit related to personal injury is two years from the date of injury. If you do not file your lawsuit before the statute of limitation expires, the court can permanently dismiss your case.

In certain circumstances, the court may pause, or “toll,” the running of the statute of limitations. For example, the statute of limitations does not begin to run for an injured minor until he or she turns 18 years old. The statute of limitations can be tolled when an injured plaintiff does not know of the facts and circumstances giving rise to their lawsuit — and would not have discovered those facts and circumstances through reasonable diligence.

If you have a personal injury claim against a government entity, you must provide the government with notice of your claim, usually in less time than the statute of limitations. For example:

Municipal governments such as Atlanta must receive notice of your personal injury claim within six months of your injury.

The state government must receive notice within 12 months of your injury.

The federal government must receive notice within two years of your injury.

If you fail to provide those governments with timely notice of your injury or establish good cause for late filing, your case can be dismissed.

What if I Get Injured in An Accident?

If you have been injured in Atlanta due to someone else’s actions or negligence, take steps to protect your rights and options for compensation:

Report your accident or injury. Where applicable, report your accident and injury. For example, if you were in a motor vehicle accident, call the police to have an officer prepare an accident report. If you were in a slip and fall accident inform the property or business owner.

Contact Information. Takedown the contact information of everyone involved. You may need that information if you later assert a claim against them.

Document the scene and your injuries. If possible, photograph or video the scene. Document what caused your injury, and photograph the surrounding area, as well as the lighting and weather conditions (if applicable). Photograph any visible injuries that you have.

Seek medical attention. Promptly follow up with a doctor to diagnose and document your injuries. Promptly identifying your injuries will allow you to establish that they were caused by the accident in question and not another incident.

Follow up with an Atlanta personal injury attorney. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you to understand your legal rights and options after you have been injured through no fault of your own. An attorney can also negotiate on your behalf with the insurance companies.
