Injured in Fayetteville? Here Is What to Do. 

Whether you have been in a car accident on Fayetteville’s State Route 54, suffered an injury on someone else's property, or otherwise hurt by another’s negligence, there are steps you should take to ensure your safety, protect your legal rights, and start a personal injury suit. 

To help you do these things, we have outlined four critical steps:

  1. Seek medical attention right away. Even if you do not feel like your injuries are severe enough to warrant a visit to the doctor, you should schedule an appointment. A medical professional can help you determine the scope of your injuries and identify any issues that might otherwise go undetected. Plus, getting medical care can help your case, as it will provide official evidence of your injuries.
  2. Document everything. If possible, take pictures or videos of the accident scene. You may even get the contact information of people who witnessed the wreck, fall, or other mishap. Should you get hurt at work or in a business, ask to file a formal report. Keep a record of expenses you incur because of the accident and injury. Document how the injuries affect your day-to-day life in the weeks, months, and even years after the accident. All these things can serve as crucial pieces of evidence in your case.
  3. After an accident, receiving a cash settlement offer from an insurance company is common. It may be tempting to accept it right away. However, do not accept less than you deserve. While the money they offer could provide some immediate relief from medical bills or lost wages, accepting it too soon might leave you with far less than you will need. Refrain from engaging with insurance companies without consulting an attorney first. 
  4. Insurance companies will do everything possible to minimize the money they pay in a settlement. This is why you should not hesitate to retain a trusted personal injury attorney. The right lawyer can help you navigate the legal processes, skillfully negotiate on your behalf, and fight for what you deserve at every turn. It is possible to go without a lawyer in personal injury cases, but doing so could put you at a disadvantage.

How Much Is Your Georgia Personal Injury Claim Worth?

The worth of a personal injury claim generally depends on the severity of the injury and the types of damages incurred. 

Economic Damages:

  • These are the financial losses that result from an accident and injury. They may include medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and other out-of-pocket costs. 

Non-Economic Damages:

  • These are more subjective and difficult to quantify. They can include compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium. 

In addition to the above, judges can award punitive damages when they determine the at-fault party acted maliciously. These are not meant to compensate the injured party but to penalize the responsible party. 

Another factor that can affect the value of a personal injury claim is the degree of fault. Georgia is a comparative negligence state. Our state allows injured parties to pursue compensation, even if they are partially to blame for an accident. However, a person’s degree of fault will affect how much of the potential damages they can recover.
