    He went out of his way, above and beyond to make sure I got what I deserved. He is extremely knowledgeable and Uber clever, sharp as a pin. By far the best personal injury firm I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

    Adrien P.

    This is the first time that I have ever had to deal with something so traumatic, but Morrison & Hughes made the experience much more pleasant and endurable. I would highly recommend this law firm.

    Jose H.

    The lawyers at MH are friendly and easy to talk to. They understood how to handle my case from the beginning, even though it had a lot of complicated issues.

    Janice B.
    "Knowledgeable & Precise"

    I am very pleased with how Tristan handled my case. I found him through another firm but knew nothing about him other than their recommendation. I found him to be knowledgeable and precise in his dealings with my case.

    Debbie
    "Above and Beyond."

    Hill Hughes was awesome to work with. He went above and beyond to fight for me. If you need good lawyers, this is the place to go. They fight long and hard for each of their clients.

    Former Client

    Mr. Morrison is one other the most helpful attorney I know he is kind and also good at his job. He is straight to the point.

    "Workman’s Comp Case"

    He is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable about Workman’s Comp. I received my benefits expeditiously. Thanks, Mr. Morrison.

    Nathan
    "All We Wanted Was What Was “Right”"

    We came to Tristan when my husband’s workman’s comp agreement was abruptly halted last year. Throughout the process, Tristan was steady and measured, and quoted diligence, not hype.

Personal Injury Claims, Explained

A personal injury claim is a type of civil lawsuit that allows a victim to take legal action against the person or entity that is responsible for injuries caused by negligent conduct or intentional wrongdoing. Put another way, if another party’s negligent behavior or deliberate wrongdoing injures you, they typically become liable for the harm they caused, giving you an opportunity to recover damages. 

In a personal injury claim, the claimant must be able to prove that they suffered some type of harm due to the negligence or recklessness of another party. This means providing evidence that shows that the at-fault party’s failure to meet a legal duty of care resulted in injury. The standard for establishing liability is dependent on the scenario. 

Once liability has been proven, a court can award monetary compensation to those harmed by the actions of another. The amount of money awarded is determined by factors such as the severity and extent of harm suffered, the scope of the claimant’s financial losses linked to their injuries, and (in some instances) the egregiousness of the negligence or wrongdoing. 

Not sure if you have a claim? You are not alone. Our attorneys can assess your situation and advise whether we believe you have a strong case. 

Cases We Handle

Our team is well-equipped to take many types of personal injury claims, ranging from straightforward automobile accidents to complex trucking collisions to premises liability incidents. When you come to our firm for personal injury representation in Georgia, we can investigate what happened, help determine liability, and review your options for recovering compensation.

Our seasoned lawyers can represent you in personal injury claims involving:

Types of Compensation You Can Recover in a Georgia Personal Injury Claim

A personal injury claim is meant to compensate you for all of the tangible and intangible losses you sustained due to the negligent actions or wrongdoing of another party. This means that you can recover compensation for literal expenses, called “economic damages,” as well as tougher to quantify consequences, referred to as “non-economic damages.” In Georgia, punitive damages may be awarded in rare situations where there is considerable evidence that the defendant acted with “willful misconduct, malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression or that entire want of care which would raise the presumption of conscious indifference to consequences.”

Our attorneys will fight to obtain compensation for all economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

If you were recently injured because of negligence, carelessness, or wrongdoing, call (404) 689-2734 or contact us online to start discussing your options for recovering compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Claims in Georgia

  • We Use Advanced Technology to Strengthen Your Case

    Our personal injury representation in Georgia is backed by state-of-the-art technology – including 3D printing, virtual reality, 3D reconstructions, and more – that works to produce compelling, dynamic evidence. Our attorneys at Morrison & Hughes understand how these cases are decided and routinely leverage that knowledge to put your claim in the best possible position. We leave no stone unturned when building personal injury claims and will make every effort to deliver the optimal result you deserve.

  • Do All Personal Injury Claims Go to Trial?

    No, not necessarily. Many personal injury claims are settled out of court before a trial commences. This is especially true if we have substantial evidence that supports your version of events. We will attempt to negotiate a fair settlement that gets you the full and fair compensation you need as quickly as possible, but if reaching an acceptable resolution pre-trial is not always possible, our team is not afraid to go to court.

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

    For most personal injury claims, you get two years from the date of injury to start the legal process. This may seem like a long time, but remember that taking action as soon as possible is in your best interest. You do not want to miss this deadline, as you will be unable to recover any damages if you do not file in time.

    Wrongful death cases work a bit differently. If a loved one was killed due to negligence or wrongdoing, you usually have two years from the date they passed away to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. Keep in mind that the date the victim passed away may not be the date of initial injury.

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.
