Internal Body Injuries You May Be Suffering
Car accidents can leave you with a range of painful, costly internal injuries, including the following:
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Broken ribs
- Internal bleeding
- Collapsed lung
Any of these forms of internal injury or others could require medical care ranging into the thousands of dollars—and sometimes, even more. According to the Mayo Clinic, a TBI can require surgeries, multiple types of rehabilitation, medications, and other forms of treatment.
You do not have to pay for these costs if someone else caused these injuries. We can help you recover the money for these expenses.

How Bader Scott Injury Lawyers Can Help With Your Case
We don’t think you should have to learn Georgia law and evaluate the evidence in your own accident in order to seek fair compensation. At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, a Peachtree internal body injury lawyer from our team can handle every aspect of your case.
Identifying the Liable Party
In any car accident, it is important to determine who was liable for the crash. The liable party can be responsible for compensating you for your costs that resulted from the accident.
Liability can be one of the most complicated aspects of your case. Depending on your case, multiple parties may even be liable for your accident. However, we will be able to identify who should be held accountable for your losses and suffering.
Gathering Evidence of Your Losses
If you are trying to claim compensation from someone else, you will need to have evidence that your losses were directly caused by their negligence. We can gather compelling evidence to show how the accident affected your life, health, and finances.
We may collect the following forms of evidence:
- Medical records
- Expert testimony, including statements from your doctors
- Receipts for accident-related expenses
- And more
Determining what Your Case is Worth
Once we’ve gathered clear evidence of your expenses that resulted from the accident, we can also factor in other forms of losses in order to determine your case’s worth. We can consider your non-economic losses, including pain and suffering.
While the amount you could receive is often higher when your injuries and losses were more severe, even so-called minor injuries can deserve compensation. For instance, if your broken ribs prevented you from working for some length of time, you may be able to seek much more than you realize.
Communicating and Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Insurance claims are not necessarily straightforward. During the process, an insurance company may try to:
- Offer you a lower settlement than you may deserve
- Claim you were more responsible for the accident than you actually were
- Claim that you made your initial injuries worse
- Ask you to make statements about your case—and then use your words to harm your case
You do not have to be worried about saying the wrong thing that could harm your case. In fact, you don’t have to respond to mail, phone calls, or any communication with a third party. We can ensure that you are treated fairly during settlement negotiations. If an insurance company refuses to agree to a fair offer, we can then take your case to court.

State laws in Georgia that May Affect Your Case
We understand personal injury law in Georgia and will use our knowledge to seek the best possible results for your case. Here are some important state laws that could affect the outcome of your case:
According to OCGA §51-12-33, you can still seek compensation for your accident-related losses even if you shared some fault for the accident.
However, an insurance company may try to use this against you. They may claim that you were much more at fault than you actually were—and argue that you deserve less compensation as a result. If this happens, we can advocate for you and present evidence of the other driver’s fault.
Statute of Limitations
This is a state law that limits the time you have to file a lawsuit. According to OCGA §9-3-33, you have two years to do so.
Two years could seem like a long time. However, we advise getting started as soon as you can. That way, we can ensure your case meets any important deadlines and that your rights are protected.
