Do I have a case?
The first question that our clients ask is, “Do I have a case?”. There are a few different things that we need to prove in personal injury cases in Georgia. To determine whether you have a claim, you can ask yourself:
- Did the other party have a duty to act with care? There are several ways that you can legally prove this. In a car, a person must obey the law. Some professions have to adhere to specific standards of care, like doctors. In other situations, building owners must keep their premises safe.
- Did the party fail to act with care? If you go into a building and a loose ceiling tile falls on your head, that could be the fault of the business owner. Especially if the business owner knew that the ceiling was faulty, and they refused to fix it.
- Did this party’s failure cause your accident? Car accidents are some of the most straightforward cases to prove negligence. If the other driver isn’t obeying the rules of the road, then the accident is automatically their fault. Unless you both aren’t following traffic laws, and then things can get a bit more complicated.
- You have damages: There can’t be a lawsuit if there are no damages to recover. So, we must prove that you have physical injuries that require compensation. Some of these can include medical bills, property damage, loss of income, and more.
Georgia is an at-fault state. So, once you establish negligence, the responsible party must pay. Some insurance companies will try to prove that you were at-fault to try to get you to settle for less money. Hire an experienced attorney to avoid lowball settlement offers.
