COMMON TYPES OF GAINESVILLE PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENTS

At Smith Hulsey Law, we focus on representing clients in personal injury lawsuits. In order to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party must prove that another person or company’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions caused their injuries. For example, a person who suffered injuries in a car accident can bring a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver who caused the accident.

A personal injury is any mental or physical injury that results from another person’s harmful act. Personal injuries can cause moderate to severe injuries, or even death. After a car accident, the full extent of one’s injuries might not be apparent right after the accident. During the shock of the accident, an injured person might not realize the full extent of his or her injuries. Neck and back injuries often become worse over a period of two to three weeks. Accident victims should speak to an attorney before giving any statements to insurance companies. If a victim states that he or she does not have any injuries the day after the accident, the insurance company may deny the claim for compensation.

Accidents can cause a wide variety of bodily injuries, ranging from mild to severe. Our attorneys frequently represent clients who have suffered personal injuries in various types of accidents.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia

Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state when it comes to determining awards for personal injuries. Georgia courts will assign a percentage of liability or responsibility for the accident to each party involved. The plaintiff can only recover compensation if he or she was less than 50% responsible for his or her damages. Thus, if the court determines that the injured plaintiff was 50% or more responsible for the accident that caused his or her injuries, the court will completely bar him or her from recovering damages.

When the plaintiff is less than 50% at fault for the accident, he or she can still recover in Georgia. The court will reduce the amount of damages by the plaintiff’s percentage of fault. Thus, if the court finds the plaintiff to be 30% at fault and awards $100,000 in damages, the plaintiff will recover $70,000 in damages. The Gainsville personal injury attorneys at Smith Hulsey Law have an in-depth understanding of Georgia’s personal injury law. We fight hard to prove that the defendant’s negligence caused our client’s injuries. Our goal is to help our clients recover as much compensation as possible.
