Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

The statute of limitations for most Georgia personal injury claims is two years from the date of injury. This means you will usually have up to two years from the date of the accident to take legal action. While this may seem like a considerable amount of time, the truth is that it is in your best interest to get legal advice and explore your options as soon as you can. Missing this deadline will prevent you from recovering any damages.

How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

If you were injured because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, there is a good chance you have a personal injury claim. If you were injured while on the job – even if you were not physically at your usual worksite – you likely have a workers’ compensation claim.

To prove fault, the injured party must provide evidence that:

  1. The other party had a duty to uphold a level of care
  2. The other party breached their duty
  3. The breach resulted in harm
  4. They suffered damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering

The only way to be sure, however, is to discuss your specific circumstances with a legal professional. Your initial consultation is always free, so do not hesitate to reach out and learn more about your legal options.

What Compensation Can I Recover?

Some of the most common types of compensation that plaintiffs seek in personal injury cases include reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Additionally, victims may be entitled to damages for emotional distress, loss of consortium, and property damage. In serious cases, punitive damages may also be awarded, penalizing the at-fault party for their negligent or intentional actions.

What to Do If You've Been Injured Due to Someone Else's Negligence?

Starting a personal injury claim may seem overwhelming, but with the right information, you can confidently initiate the process.  Follow these steps: 

  1. Seek medical attention: Your health should be your priority. Get prompt medical attention for your injuries. Taking this step ensures you receive appropriate treatment and creates a record of your injuries, which can be crucial when filing a claim. 
  2. Document your injuries, expenses, and experience: Collect any evidence related to the accident and your injuries, such as photographs of the accident scene, medical records, police reports, witness statements, and any other relevant documentation. 
  3. Consult an attorney: As soon as you are able, call an Atlanta personal injury attorney. At Morrison & Hughes Law, we can evaluate the viability of your claim, help you weigh your options, and make our recommendation for how you ought to move ahead. We are glad to offer free initial consultations, so there is no reason to wait to contact us.  
  4. File an insurance claim: If applicable, notify the responsible party's insurance company about the accident and your intention to file a claim. Provide them with the necessary information and cooperate with their investigation. Your attorney can assist you in communicating with the insurance company to protect your rights.

What if the Accident Results in Death?

Accident deaths are an extremely unfortunate reality. When it comes to auto accidents, for example, upwards of a hundred or more people in Dekalb and Fulton Counties die each year, according to state data. Losing a loved one in a car wreck—or any other accident, for that matter—is never easy. It can be even more devastating when another’s negligence or wrongdoing causes death. 

In a wrongful death case, the decedent's party seeks compensation for their tragic loss. The plaintiff (often a surviving spouse or family member) must show that the defendant's action or inaction fell below the standard of care expected in the circumstances and caused the death. 

Both personal injury and wrongful death cases are highly complex, and a majority of people do not have the know-how to navigate them on their own. This is why retaining an Atlanta personal injury attorney can be invaluable. A lawyer can fight for your rights and handle all legal matters, including gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and representing you in court if necessary. With the right attorney on your side, you can navigate a personal injury or wrongful death case with confidence.

Answer just a few easy questions, and we’ll be able to help tell if you have a case! Please note that this is not legal advice, and we aren’t your attorney yet. It’s just a quick way to get some basic information. We strongly recommend that you contact us for a free consultation and speak to a live attorney to figure out what your case is worth.

  • Please make a selection.
    • Unfortunately, most causes of action are barred after 2 years. If your case is not already in litigation, you have probably lost your right to sue. There are a very few times when that may not be true, so we recommend you call another law firm for confirmation. We unfortunately won’t be able to help with your case, ourselves. If your case is already in litigation, we recommend you call us. At this stage, determining what your case is worth and what your rights may be will require more questions than we can do online. Give us a call at 404-800-5297 and schedule a time with an attorney.

      • We’d love to talk to you. I’m going to send this over to our intake staff and have them call you to discuss further. Please fill out the information below and we’ll give you a call soon!

        You may have a case, depending on what type of care you have gotten, but we’ll need to actually talk to you to figure out the value of your case and give you good advice. Please give us a call at 404-800-5297 and be ready to tell us about which doctors you have seen, pictures of the cars involved, and your drivers’ license. We look forward to talking to you!

      Generally, to prove that you are injured, you need to get medical care soon after the collision. If it’s been more than 30 days since the collision, it’s going to be very difficult to prove your injuries are a result of the crash. Another problem with waiting so long is that evidence – like videos and witness reports – are going to be hard, if not impossible to find. We recommend that you call us, or another attorney, during business hours and ask for an evaluation of your case. Please have pictures of the cars and your driver’s license available.

    • That’s very good. Please keep those pictures and do not delete them. When we talk to you, please send them over.

    • It sounds like you have a case that we can assist you with. We’d love to reach out to you, so please fill out the information on the next page so we’ll have a good contact number for you. In the meantime, keep a copy of any medical paperwork, pictures, or other evidence about the crash in an easily accessible place. We’ll ask you for them when we talk. Remember, there’s no attorney-client relationship until we get a chance to talk to you, so also do the following: Don’t talk to the at-fault insurance company Tell your doctors about each body part that hurts, even minor pain Don’t post about this on social media. Make your profile private

      • I’d recommend that you talk with one of our attorneys before getting the surgery. It sounds like you may have a workers’ compensation claim that we can help with, and surgery is a big part of that claim. We’ll take your info and send it over to our attorney intake team to schedule a call with you. Please fill out the information below and we’ll give you a call soon!

      • I’d like to get your information so we have someone contact you and discuss if there’s anything further workers compensation can do for you. Once you’ve had surgery under workers compensation, there are some additional benefits which you may be entitled to, even if you have gone back to work. Generally, after surgery, the insurance company may be required to pay you a “permanent partial disability” payment, depending on how well the surgery went.

        For a minor injury, you may not want or need an attorney. Settling a workers’ compensation almost always involves a resignation. So, consider whether involving a lawyer is in your best interest. If you would still like a free legal consult, please give us a call at 404-800-5297

    • Medical malpractice is very complicated, so we’re going to send this information to an attorney to review and, if it looks like you have a valid claim, an attorney will give you a call to discuss your rights. In the meantime, if you have medical records which support your claim, please have them ready for review.

          • Ok, I think we have enough information to have someone look into your social security question. We’ll pass this along to a qualified social security attorney. Fill out the next section so that they can contact you to talk further.

      • Ok, I think we have enough information to have someone look into your disability question. Disability cases are complex, so a disability attorney will need to speak with you about your claim. Fill out the next section so that they can contact you to talk further. If possible, please gather your wage records, along with the disability application or policy to be ready for the call.

      • Federal law requires certain types of employees to be paid time and a half (overtime) when working more than 40 hours during a given work week. Therefore, when you tell us what happened, make sure to include your job title, your typical work week, how much you were paid, and whether you were ever paid overtime.

        Being forced to work through unpaid breaks on a regular basis is wage theft. For example, if you have a regularly scheduled lunch break, for which you are not paid, but your employer requires you to work through lunch without paying you, you may be entitled to compensation. Therefore, when you tell us what happened, make sure to include your job title, which breaks are involved, and roughly how many co-workers are also having wages stolen.

        Being forced to work before or after clocking out is a violation of Federal law. This is sometimes called “wage theft”. When you tell us what happened, make sure to include your job title, your pay rate, and roughly how many co-workers are also having wages stolen.

    • Ok, we’ll send this over to an attorney to look over. If it sounds like you have a claim under the law, we’ll ask someone to call you to get some more information. In the meantime, if you have any emails, or wage stubs, time logs, or anything that you think will help your claim, please have them ready.

    • We’ll have an attorney take a look at this. If it’s something we can help with, please expect a call from an attorney in the next day or so. If not, you may still have a claim, but it’s one we can’t help with. If you don’t get a call from us, we may not be able to help you, so please find another attorney to give you some advice soon, because there are a lot of deadlines in the law.

when you have been injured, we won't back down It can feel like the system is designed for you to lose- but with attorneys who don't back down on your side, you can fight- and win.
