If a car accident resulted in injuries of any degree or severity, a Macon contusions and lacerations lawyer can help you seek financial compensation. The at-fault driver’s negligence could mean they are responsible for the emergency and ongoing expenses of treating your injuries. You could also be entitled to compensation for additional costs that stem from the accident or from your injuries.
When our team goes to work on your compensation lawsuit, you can focus on your physical recovery or on helping a loved one recover. Find out how we can help you prove the at-fault driver’s negligence, assign financial responsibility, document your expenses and losses, and file your lawsuit on time.
Find Out What Your Car Accident Case is Worth
Our team handles many aspects of your car accident lawsuit. High on the list is assigning a financial value to your injuries and to the expenses and losses that stem from your injuries. To do so, we collect medical records and bills from every health care source.
We also make sure to include the cost of any assistive medical devices you require, like casts, canes, and wheelchairs. We compile receipts for any prescription medications you require and ensure your evidence file contains proof of the value of your injuries and treatment plan.
Additional Evidence We Collect to Prove the Value of Your Lawsuit
Your medical records make up a significant portion of your lawsuit. We also include evidence and items that prove your right to compensation in the first place. That can include your car accident report, which helps us establish the statutory filing deadline and provides contact details for all involved parties.
It also tells us the factors that contributed to the accident and any traffic violations or distractions on the part of the at-fault driver. The evidence we collect can also include:
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
- Your own written statement
The contusions and lacerations lawyers on our team can help you build a solid evidence file that establishes your right to financial compensation. It will also help prove the value of your compensation lawsuit.
You Can Collect Two Types of Recoverable Damages
After a car accident in Macon, OCGA §51-1-6, allows you to seek financial damages from the at-fault driver who caused your injuries. Accordingly, our team can help you recover:
- Short-term and long-term medical bills
- Property damage or total destruction
- Lasting physical disability or impairment
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
- Short-term and long-term income loss
We can help you itemize each applicable recoverable damage and assign an accurate value to each. We will help ensure nothing is omitted from your itemized damages and determine the overall value of your car accident lawsuit.
Our team then uses that final number to drive settlement negotiations. The goal of negotiations is to ensure the settlement amount you agree to is fair.
Do Not Hesitate to Put Oure Team to Work
To ensure compliance with the statute of limitations, we put our car accident team to work immediately. When we go to work for you, we will review the merits of your case and help you assess its potential value.
We will also:
- Represent you on a contingency–fee-basis
- Provide a free consultation with a team member
- Handle all insurance company correspondence
Our goal when representing you is to ensure you receive the responsive, attentive legal service your case deserves. We are also committed to ensuring you are supported through your physical and emotional recovery.
Meet Georgia’s Statute of Limitations
The state defines the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit after a car accident. While the general timeline is two years from the date of the accident, according to OCGA §9-3-33, the following factors can change the timeline:
- The involvement of a minor
- An accident-involved death
A team member will let you know if one of these (or any other factor) tolls the timeline in your case. We will also help you avoid the penalties associated with an expired statute of limitations. In addition to meeting the filing deadline, getting us involved in your case early on means we can:
- Locate and interview witnesses early
- Thoroughly investigate your car accident
Early involvement also gives us time to look for residential and commercial video footage of the accident. We also help identify the at-fault party and hold them accountable for their actions before the allotted time runs out.
We Can Help You Accurately Assign Financial Liability
When our legal team goes to work on your car accident lawsuit, we help you establish the required legal elements of negligence, according to American Bar Association (ABA) guidelines. Proving these elements proves your right to financial recovery.
With our help, you can prove the at-fault driver:
- Owed you a duty of reasonable care
- Breached their responsibility
- Caused your injuries
- Caused your financial damages
Proving negligence can lead to the financial compensation you deserve because many personal injury cases are resolved with a financial settlement once the evidence is assessed. When we fight for you, we fight for a fair financial settlement that lets you avoid a lengthy court case and still get the compensation you deserve.
