What Damages Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

When you have been injured by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you’ve incurred. The damages in a personal injury claim include:

  • Medical expenses, including hospital and doctor’s bills, surgery, prescription medication, therapy, rehab, medical equipment, long-term care, or even home alterations to accommodate permanent disabilities caused by your injuries.
  • Lost wages, if you miss work while recovering from your injuries.
  • Lost earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your job and you suffer reduced income as a result.
  • Pain and suffering, which includes the physical and emotional anguish and distress caused by your injuries.
  • Lost quality of life, which can result 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, which compensates your spouse for the loss of your intimate companionship and society.

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

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

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Georgia

If you have been injured in Georgia due to someone else’s careless actions, you have a limited time period in which to file a lawsuit. This period is known as the statute of limitations. Under Georgia law, the statute of limitations for 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 also 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 to Do If You’ve Been Hurt in an Accident in Atlanta

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Take down the names and contact information of everyone involved in your accident. You may need that information if you later assert a claim against them.
  3. Document the accident scene and your injuries. If possible, photograph or video the accident 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
