Personal Injury Law

A personal injury claim, is a legal process whereby an individual who has been injured as a result of another party's negligence or wrongful actions seeks compensation for their damages. The term "damages" can refer to physical injuries, emotional trauma, financial losses, or any other harm the victim has suffered. To successfully file a personal injury claim, the victim must prove that the other party was at fault and that their actions resulted in the victim's injuries.

Personal Injury Claims in Jonesboro

You may be entitled to compensation if you've been injured in an accident that wasn't your fault. After an accident, the first step is to seek medical attention for your injuries. Once a doctor has seen you, you can gather evidence to support your claim. This may include medical records, police reports, witness statements, and photos or videos of the accident scene.

Personal injury claims are calculated based on several factors, including the injury's severity, expected medical treatment costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases, punitive damages may also be included. The exact method for calculating a personal injury claim varies depending on the circumstances of the case.

Personal Injury Cases

There are many different types of personal injury cases that can be filed. Some of the most common include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents. In each of these cases, the victim may be able to seek compensation for their injuries. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Each type of case also has its own unique elements, but there are some commonalities between them. For example, all personal injury cases require the injured person to prove that they were harmed by the negligence of another person or entity. An experienced personal injury attorney can help to determine what type of compensation may be available in a particular case.

Car Accidents. Car crashes frequently happen in Georgia. In fact, in 2015, Georgia had 385,221 motor vehicle accidents. Of these accidents, there were 1,430 deaths, and 366 crashes involved alcohol.

Truck Accidents. The trucking industry is predatory; many trucking companies endanger the lives of their own drivers and everyone else on the road in many ways, including by cutting corners when it comes to truck safety inspections and incentivizing drivers to work even when they are exhausted. Truck accidents are dangerous and far too common.

Slip and Falls. These accidents are a leading cause of injuries in the United States, accounting for more than one million emergency room visits annually. Falls can happen anywhere and to anyone, but they are ubiquitous in places with a lot of foot traffic, like shopping centers, office buildings, and hotels.

Electrocution. Most electrocutions occur when workers come into contact with live electrical wires or equipment. This can happen when workers are installing, repairing, or operating electrical equipment, or when working near live power lines.

Negligent Security. This is a type of legal claim that is made against a property owner or operator. Negligent security claims can arise when a property owner or operator fails to take reasonable steps to protect visitors from foreseeable dangers, such as crime. If a visitor is injured or killed due to inadequate security, the property owner or operator may be liable for negligence.

Medical Malpractice. This occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide proper care to a patient, and as a result, the patient is harmed. In some cases, the harm may be minor, but in other cases, it can be life-threatening or even fatal.

Wrongful Death. A wrongful death is a death that is caused by the negligence or illegal act of another person or entity. Wrongful deaths can occur in various ways but most commonly result from car accidents, medical malpractice, or workplace accidents.
