A personal injury case can net compensation for you. If you were injured or lost a loved one in Macon, then you have the right to hire a personal injury lawyer. They will seek coverage for your medical costs, property damage, lost income, and any other losses that you have.
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can handle every feature of your case. We aim to recover the compensation that you deserve. Your only worry should be your recovery.
Recoverable Damages from a Personal Injury Case
Recovering awards for your losses is our primary concern. We will speak with you, your loved ones, your doctors, and anyone else who has observed your losses. We may then:
- Seek documentation of your losses
- Assign a monetary value to your losses
- Pursue a case for coverage
Losses from a personal injury accident may fall into several categories.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is a common damage in personal injury cases. Where an injury or wrongful death happens, non-economic losses can follow.
Pain and suffering can account for:
- Emotional trauma
- Psychological trauma
- Physical pain
- Loss of quality of life
- Specific disorders
Pain and suffering can be a high-value loss in both personal injury and wrongful death cases.
We can seek coverage for all of your losses, medical expenses included. Medical costs for an injury or wrongful death may cover:
- Ambulance transport
- An emergency room visit
- Diagnostic imaging scans
- Follow-up medical visits
- In-home medical equipment
- Caregiver services
We may recover compensation for each of these costs. If you have additional medical costs that extend into your future, we will seek coverage for them, as well.
Your professional losses may translate directly into financial losses. We will pursue coverage for:
- Income that you have already lost
- Income that you are likely to lose in the future
- A long-term decline in your earning power
- Loss of productivity
- Loss of professional fulfillment
If you suffer any other damages aside from those listed here, our firm will seek fair coverage for them.
We Collect no Upfront Fees
We pursue all of the compensation you deserve without any payment from you. Bader Scott Injury Lawyers collects only a contingency fee. That is, our fee is contingent on you receiving compensation.
Because we only get paid if you do, we:
- Have a clear incentive to win your case
- Use any resources that will help your case
- Accurately assess your damages
There is no financial roadblock to hiring our firm, as your financial standing does not matter.
A personal injury lawyer from our firm will resolve your case. Macon is one of the areas that we serve, and we hope that we can serve you as a client.
How Bader Scott Injury Lawyers Can Handle Your Case
We handle your case from the time of your free consultation to its resolution. We seek one of the following outcomes:
- A settlement
- A favorable judgment
We take a personalized approach to your case by:
- Offering a free consultation
- Speaking with you for as long as is necessary to understand your losses
- Answering your questions
- Addressing your concerns
- Explaining why we are taking the approach that we are
We can keep you updated as your case progresses. We will also respond to your emails and phone calls. We have been voted Best Client Service, and we live up to that honor.
Specific Steps We Take to Complete Your Case
We assume all of the legal responsibilities required to complete your case. We handle tasks as small as phone calls and as critical as settlement negotiations.
Our duties will include:
- Investigating the cause of your losses
- Gathering and organizing evidence
- Calculating the cost of your losses
- Speaking with experts
- Interviewing witnesses
- Creating and filing paperwork
- Defending you throughout your case
We generally will begin by seeking a financial settlement through an insurance claim. Per the American Bar Association (ABA), most cases are settled through negotiations.
We can also take your case to trial, though. The success of settlement negotiations will determine if a trial is necessary.
We Can File Your Case Before the Statute of Limitations Expires
Personal injury cases can be subject to various deadlines. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is generally two years, per OCGA §9-3-33. Wrongful death cases are also subject to time limits.
We help you with these deadlines by:
- Informing you of relevant deadlines
- Completing paperwork promptly
- Filing paperwork promptly
You may also need to report events related to your case. This generally includes injuries from certain accident types. We can help with this as well.
We Aim to Hold the At-Fault Parties Accountable
Regardless of the specifics of your case, we want to hold the at-fault parties accountable for your losses. In personal injury cases, the at-fault party is generally someone who:
- Is guilty of negligence
- Caused you harm because of their negligence
Not every defendant in these cases is negligent. In some cases, they are simply responsible for a negligent party. We see this with employers whose employees act in a negligent manner.
We can seek compensation from all liable parties. They may owe you awards even if you are partially at fault for your losses.
