The Best Injury Attorneys In Savannah Fighting For The Rights Of Victims

In the state of Georgia, if you are injured because someone else has been careless, after you’ve been treated by a healthcare professional, you will need to speak as quickly as possible with a qualified personal injury attorney from Spaulding Injury Law, located at 100 Bull St. #200, Savannah, GA 31401.

Many personal injuries happen in traffic accidents, but you may also be entitled to compensation if you are injured because:

  • A property owner was negligent regarding hazards on a property.
  • Someone’s dog or other animal bit or attacked you.
  • You were sold a defective consumer product that caused you to be injured.

Here are some questions about accident lawsuits our Savannah office has received in the past:

In personal injury cases, an injury victim charges that his or her injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence. Victims of negligence are entitled to compensation, but you and your accident attorney must prove these “elements of the case” to prevail with your personal injury claim:

  • The defendant (the party presumably liable for the accident and injury) had a “duty of care” to the plaintiff (the accident victim).
  • The duty of care was breached by the defendant’s negligence.
  • The defendant’s negligence was a direct cause of the plaintiff’s personal injury or injuries.
  • The amount of compensation sought by the plaintiff is fair, just, and should be paid by the defendant.

The duty of care is different in different situations. As drivers, for example, we owe a duty to other drivers, their passengers, and pedestrians. It is a duty to drive with reasonable caution and care.

Homeowners owe their visitors only a basic, reasonable duty of care, but for business owners, the duty of care may be more exacting, as businesses must take certain steps to ensure the safety of employees, contractors, clients, and customers.

Product manufacturers must ensure that their products are reasonably safe for the public when used as directed and that adequate instructions and safety warnings are provided to buyers.

Whether it’s a traffic injury sustained, a slip-and-fall injury because of a wet floor at a restaurant or a supermarket, or any other type of injury caused by someone else’s negligence, a good Savannah accident attorney can launch an immediate investigation.

Your attorney will interview witnesses, study any physical evidence, and review police reports, medical tests results, and all of the pertinent insurance policies to determine which party or parties should be held accountable.

If your injuries are extensive, or if your case is extraordinarily complicated, your attorney may find it helpful to consult with an independent medical authority, and in some cases, with an accident reconstruction expert.

If your case goes to trial, your attorney may recommend asking an expert to testify on your behalf – to help jurors understand what happened or how extensive your injuries are.

Most injured victims of negligence receive compensation without having to appear in a courtroom because most personal injury cases in Georgia are resolved when the attorneys for both parties negotiate a private settlement that is acceptable to both sides of the case.

Only the most complicated cases – and the most vigorously disputed cases – become personal injury trials. Nevertheless, your accident attorney should be a talented trial lawyer as well as a skilled negotiator.

At Spaulding Injury Law, attorneys Theodore Spaulding and Jeremy Hayes have two decades of combined personal injury experience. Both attorneys are aggressive negotiators and powerful courtroom advocates for the injured victims of negligence in Savannah and across the state.

In most circumstances, employers in this state cannot be sued over job-related injuries. Workplace injuries are usually compensated – with no need for a lawsuit – through the state’s workers’ compensation insurance system.

However, while a workers’ compensation claim is usually the appropriate path to compensation for a job-related injury, if someone other than the employer is, in fact, responsible for a workplace injury, the victim may be able to pursue a “third-party” personal injury claim against that party.

Contact us in Savannah if you are injured at work, and you believe that a third party – a contractor or an equipment manufacturer, for example – may have been partially or fully responsible for the accident that injured you.

    How to Choose The Right Personal Injury Lawyer in Savannah For You

    If you’ve been injured, one of the first things you may do is perform a Google search to find the name of a personal injury attorney near you in the city of Savannah. But, you will soon find that there are dozens of personal injury lawyers throughout the state. It’s important to take your time when it comes to choosing an attorney so you know that you’ve found the right one to represent you in your case.

    First, start by creating a short list of attorneys that you are interested in learning more about. You can get the names for this short list by asking friends and family for recommendations, consulting with the local bar association, or using an online lawyer directory.

    When choosing the names to add to this list, it’s important to know what to look for. You should only include attorneys that are experienced in personal injury law, and licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia.

    Contact each of the attorneys on your list to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. Before meeting with each attorney, make a list of questions to ask during the consultation so you don’t forget anything.

    You will need to ask questions to learn more about the attorney’s background, experience handling cases similar to yours, and past successes. You should also ask the attorney about how he is compensated for his legal services to ensure he will work on a contingency fee basis. Additionally, ask the attorney about who you will be working with inside the office, how often you will be updated about the status of your case, and whether he is able to take your case to trial if necessary. Be sure to take notes during each meeting so you can reference these notes later. After following these steps, you should be able to decide which personal injury attorney in Savannah is the best choice. You will then need to inform the attorney that you have decided to hire him so he can begin working on your case right away.
