If a car accident led to a temporarily or permanently debilitating spinal injury, you have options for getting financial compensation. Our personal injury team can help you sue the liable driver or negotiate a settlement with their insurance company. We can also help you receive compensation from your own insurance company under certain circumstances.
Do not hesitate to put our team to work for you when you are ready to seek monetary recovery. We help you build, prove, and resolve your lawsuit by showing you how local and state personal injury law impacts your case, ensuring proper timing of your lawsuit, and negotiating a favorable financial resolution on your behalf.
Calculate Your Spinal Injury Expenses
According to the Mayo Clinic research, treatment for a spinal injury can involve breathing support, medications, surgery, and long-term physical and occupational rehabilitation. The at-fault driver in your car accident could be financially liable for the costs of your health care treatment plan, including:
- Emergency care
- Hospital admission
- Therapy and rehab
- In-home care
- Assistive devices
- Tests and exams
Because they can come from a variety of treatment providers, facilities, and referrals, it can be difficult to assess your medical damages on your own. With guidance and direction from our case review team, you can thoroughly and accurately assess your lawsuit.
Calculate Your Injury-Related Expenses
Compensation from a personal injury lawsuit includes recovery of more than your medical expenses. Once the injury portion of your lawsuit has been assigned a fair valuation, we start assessing the financial damages that stem from your injuries. According to OCGA §51-1-6, the injury-related financial damages you can recover include:
- Income loss
- Property damages
- Property loss
- Physical impairment
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
You do not have to calculate these damages on your own or gather the documents and receipts that prove their value without help. Our team will help ensure you receive the settlement you deserve by building a strong case file and by filing your lawsuit on time.
Calculating Future Losses
Along with calculating your current economic and non-economic losses, we will also take your future losses into account. If your injuries require you to undergo continued therapy and medical treatment, your settlement or court-awarded offer should reflect this.
This is why seeking medical care after a car accident is so important. Medical documentation can help prove your damages so you can seek fair compensation.

Trust Our Law Firm to Fight For You
When we represent you, our team handles every aspect of your personal injury case. One of the critical actions our team takes is to help ensure your case is filed on time. We also make sure you understand the consequences of missing the filing deadline.
In Macon, your right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver is limited by the state’s statute of limitations. OCGA §9-3-33 generally allows you to file within two years of the date of the accident. If you miss the filing deadline, you might be unable to file your case at all, or your lawsuit might be dismissed without ever being heard.
Either of these factors can leave you with no way to legally compel compensation from the at-fault driver. We also take additional steps to ensure the validity of your lawsuit, prove its value, and safeguard your right to file a compensation lawsuit.
We Build a Comprehensive Case File for You
Our team knows the importance of building a case file that contains a wealth of documents and evidence that support your version of events. We also know the items in your case file can help steer your case toward a monetary settlement rather than a prolonged court case. When we build your case file, we include your:
- Car accident report
- Medical records and bills
- Paycheck stubs and records
- Injury and accident scene photos
- Car repair or replacement estimates
Your case file will also contain any statements from any available witnesses. We will also locate any available smartphone video footage from witnesses, bystanders, and even your own device.
If available, we will look for nearby homes and businesses that may have surveillance video. We gather this evidence and present it to the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
We Handle the Insurance Company
Dealing with the at-fault driver’s insurance company after a car accident can be time-consuming and daunting. It can involve a long back-and-forth negotiation process before an agreement is reached. Our team will:
- Handle all communication
- Complete and submit claim forms
- Present evidence of negligence
You do not have to handle the insurance company or negotiate a favorable settlement on your own. We can help you get fair treatment and a favorable settlement from the liable party’s insurance company.
If the liable driver was uninsured or underinsured, our spinal injury lawyers can also help ensure you get fair compensation from your own insurance company.
