How much is my personal injury case worth?

You are probably wondering how much your personal injury case is worth. There are some key factors: what happened in your accident, how severe your injuries are, the insurance coverage available. The main thing that increases your case value is how much the plaintiff could get in damages at trial, including the following:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering

It is hard to give an exact potential value because these factors can vary a lot from case to case. However, an experienced personal injury lawyer should be able to give you an estimated value after investigating the case. The lawyer will look at your medical records, police reports, witness statements, and all other evidence. This information can provide an overall picture of how much compensation you can get from a personal injury lawsuit.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Personal injuries lawyers like Georgia Auto Law do not have hourly rates or any fees up front, ever. We work on a “contingency fee” which means that we only get paid if we win your case. Our fee comes from the money we recover for you and never out of your own pocket.

This is the best arrangement for injured people because it allows them to have a great personal injury lawyer without having to pay expensive hourly rates that other lawyers charge. This allows you to be on the same playing field as the big defense lawyers who are trying to fight against us. You only pay your legal team if they win your case for you.

If you or a loved one have been injured, contact Georgia Auto Law’s personal injury attorneys today for a completely free, no-obligation case evaluation. You do not have to fight this battle alone.

Why hire a personal injury attorney in Georgia?

Auto accident and personal injury victims have a lot to deal with. You have medical bills, lost wages from missing work, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and much more. To make matters worse, the insurance companies often try to deny claims or fight to get off as cheap as possible. Their number one goal is to pay as little as possible. So, your personal injury lawyer will be your voice in fighting against them.

At Georgia Auto law, our personal injury lawyers provide you with the best and highest chance of recovering maximum compensation after an accident. In every case, our personal injury attorneys do the following:

  • Conduct a detailed investigation of the accident
  • Gather important evidence (police reports, witness statements, photos)
  • Show the insurance company the severity of your injuries
  • Negotiate with the insurance company
  • Take your case to trial if the insurance company will not pay what you truly deserve

Steps in a personal injury lawsuit

Once you are being treated for your injuries and are thinking about a personal injury lawsuit, it is important to know the proper steps to take.  These are the normal steps that take place in cases that arise from motor vehicle accidents and personal injury accidents.

1

Contact a lawyer

You should contact a personal injury lawyer who specializes in the type of case that you have. As discussed above, specialized and experienced personal injury lawyers are able to assess your case and determine if you are able to win a personal injury lawsuit.

2

Building the case

Once you become a client, your lawyer and legal team will immediately investigate every aspect of your case. We will look at your injuries and type of accident you were involved in, all evidence, your lost wages, and any other factors that make your case stronger.

3

Settlement negotiations

To start the negotiation, your personal injury attorney will send a “Demand Letter” to the insurance company. In this letter, we show them our evidence and why you are entitled to compensation. In most cases, this step is where your lawyer will be able to get you an good personal injury settlement to help you get back on your feet.

4

Filing the lawsuit

If the other insurance company tries to get away with a low-ball offer or rejects a settlement, then we file the personal injury lawsuit to get you the maximum compensation possible. This is when we begin the litigation process in order to make sure your rights are protected.

5

Discovery

After the personal injury lawsuit has been filed, there is a period of time called “discovery.” This is when both your lawyer and the defense lawyer share the documents and evidence with each other. This is when your lawyer will sending requests for every single document that the defense lawyer has that relates to the case. That way, we can know everything about their side of the case.

6

Trial

When a case does not reach a settlement, it goes to court in front of a judge and jury. During trial, your lawyer will stand up and argue your case. At Georgia Auto Law, we have vast experience in trial, and insurance companies know it. They do not like having to go up against us in court.

Have questions?

We have answers.

The personal injury lawsuit process can be complicated. Not to mention you are going through a stressful time dealing with injuries, medical bills, and everything else. We are here to answer all of your questions. Even if you are not ready to start your case right now, you can speak with an experienced personal lawyer who will answer all of your questions completely free.

How long will my case take?

Auto accident cases and other personal injury cases can be complex and challenging. The personal injury settlement and lawsuit process can sometimes takes months or years to complete depending on the case. Insurance companies try to draw out the case as long as they can to avoid paying. That is one of their main tactics. They do this with the hopes that the personal injury victim will get frustrated and settle for much less than they truly deserve. 

A Georgia Auto Law personal injury lawyer will take care of every step of your case, and we will not settle for anything less than the full value of your case. Georgia Auto Law attorneys are highly skilled in negotiation and in the litigation process. We are ready to settle it fast if we were able to get full value, but we are also ready to take it all the way to trial if that is what is needed to get you the maximum compensation that you deserve.

Personal injury settlement

A personal injury settlement takes place when your lawyer, and the other lawyer, come to a mutual agreement on the amount of compensation for your damages. This will include your medical bills, lost wages, expenses, and pain and suffering. There are many factors that will have an impact on the final amount of personal injury settlement.  

Things that affect the personal injury settlement amount are the severity of your injuries, the nature of the accident, your lost wages, and your medical bills. We will fight for this settlement with no upfront fees at all, we only take a fee from the final settlement if we win your case for you.  

Generally, most personal injury cases settle. When Georgia Auto Law is on the case, the insurance companies know our strong reputation in handling auto accident cases in Georgia.  They do not want to mess with us. They know that car, truck, and motorcycle cases are all we do, and they know we have the resources to beat them. And even if they try to low-ball us, our trial team is ready to take them to court. Many times we have secured hundreds of thousands, and even millions, in cases where the insurance company made an initial low-ball offer.

Lawyer tip:

Personal injury settlements aren’t taxable — most of the time

Generally speaking, money from a personal injury settlement is not taxable. That is because settlement money is not “income,” it is compensation. The IRS classifies it as non-taxable. There are some exceptions to this general rule, and your personal injury attorney in Georgia will be able to advise you.

Types of personal injury cases

There are many different types of personal injury cases. Here are some of the more common types of cases that we handle at Georgia Auto law.

Car Accidents.  Accidents involving cars are some of the most common personal injury cases. These personal injury claims come from another driver’s negligence that causes a car accident. These accidents can have lifelong impacts and the injuries can be very severe. Also, a car accident that may not seem that bad at first can require a lot of medical care to get the injured victim back on his or her feet.

We would file a personal injury lawsuit in a car accident case to achieve compensation for medical bills that have already been incurred and future medical bills as well. You can also recover damages for lost wages due to an inability to work and the lost ability to work in the future. You can also recover pain and suffering damages in a car accident case.

Truck Accidents.  Big trucks are all over the roads, and they can cause very severe truck accidents. These cases can lead to significant medical bills and pain and suffering damages. A personal injury lawsuit is often required to pursue full compensation if you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident.

Motorcycle accidents.  Motorcycles allow a sense of thrill and freedom, but they can also be more dangerous than normal passenger cars. Due to the fact that a motorcycle rider is totally exposed, even a minor bump can have lifelong impacts. Motorcycle accidents often lead to personal injury lawsuits in order to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering from a motorcycle accident.  

Wrongful Death.  Wrongful death cases are heartbreaking. And we fight as hard as we can to get maximum compensation for these terrible personal injury accidents. In these cases, all medical bills and expenses, along with lost wages, that you can get in any personal injury lawsuit are available in a wrongful death case. Under Georgia law, there are also special categories of compensation for the surviving family members of those who have died due to the negligence of others.  

Compensation is available for pain and suffering, along with the loss of companionship for the loss of a loved one. These damages often can assist a family in getting some peace after experiencing the sudden and shocking loss of a loved one.

In a wrongful death case, it is very important for the surviving family members to pursue legal action immediately. Obviously, thinking about a lawsuit when you are grieving might feel weird and uncomfortable, but it is important to protect your rights. You deserve justice on behalf of the person who you lost.   

Brain and spinal cord injuries.  Unfortunately, the human brain and spinal cord is very fragile. And we often see terribly sad and serious injuries to these areas. Auto accidents and other personal injury accidents can lead to injuries to the brain and spinal cord, and these injuries can be life changing. In personal injury cases like this, the injury victim could sustain permanent physical and mental damage, paralysis, and problems with cognitive function.                

If a negligent person, company, or entity injuries you or a loved one, you are all victims of this loss. You do not have to go up against these negligent entities and insurance company alone. A contingency-fee personal injury attorney, with a strong team, will work until you get the compensation you deserve for yourself or your loved one.

Personal Injury FAQs

Why file a personal injury lawsuit?

A personal injury can be a life changing event. When you are hurt by the negligence of someone else or a company, you will be left with huge medical bills, expenses, and lost wages that should not come out of your pocket. After all, you did not cause your own injury.

Therefore, personal injury lawsuits are very important for injured victims to have justice and not be left with all of this on their own. The impact of a personal injury can range from a slight annoyance to something that will affect you every day for the rest of your life. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, personal injury lawsuits exist so that you can hold the negligent person or company (and their insurance company) accountable. This means that you get the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

If you have suffered an injury, contact a contingency-fee attorney if you want to file a personal injury lawsuit to receive compensation.

What is personal injury pain and suffering compensation?

Pain and suffering is money that an injury victim can recover for the physical pain and emotional distress from an accident.  Pain and suffering is different that medical bills and lost wages. Those things are called “economic damages” because they have an exact number.  However, pain and suffering damages compensate you for the day to day pain, change in lifestyle, interference with enjoyment of life, interference with daily activities, and other things.

This is money above and beyond your medical bills that you have a right to.  You should make sure you speak with a personal injury lawyer to make sure you get the full amount of pain and suffering compensation in your case.

What is compensation for damages in a personal injury lawsuit?

Plaintiffs are entitled to certain categories of damages related to their injuries.  Generally, personal injury lawsuits are filed to recover compensation (“damages”) to compensate the plaintiff for harms and losses he or she has suffered as a result of a personal injury.  The overall idea is that a personal injury victim has a right to compensation because he or she should not have to bear the financial hardship caused by another person or company’s actions.  The bottom line is that you should not have to pay for damage caused by someone else.

Under Georgia law, there are several types of damages that you can get in a personal injury lawsuit.  Some of these are considered “economic” damages and are related to actual costs incurred after an injury (medical bills, lost wages, etc.).  There are also “noneconomic” damages which are more subjective and do not have “exact” dollar figures. 

Medical bills.  If you have been involved in a personal injury accident you will probably need medical care.  This will include tests, surgeries, treatment, hospital visits, outpatient care, and other things to address your immediate injuries.  But, the need for medical treatment often goes much further. You may need medical care on an ongoing basis for very severe and permanent injuries.  This will lead to massive medical bills that can be thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The damages in a personal injury lawsuit should cover all of this.

Lost wages.  When you are injured, it is likely that you have had to miss work.  Sometimes you may have had to take a very long time off of work while you recovered.  Or, you may have been injured so severely that you can no longer work. Whether you had to miss a few days for doctors appointments, or you are no longer able to work in the future, you are entitled to compensation for lost wages.

Pain and Suffering.  This compensation is based on the severity of the pain and suffering that you have gone through.  As discussed above, the type of injury and medical treatment that you underwent will also factor into how much pain and suffering damages will be.  To get pain and suffering compensation, which can exceed a million dollars in a jury trial in Georgia, we use as much evidence as we can to prove the true impact the injury has had on your life.

A personal injury lawyer will look at your medical records to help prove the true extent of your injuries and how long it has taken to recover from it.  For example, if you had a long stay in the hospital that is proof of more severe pain and suffering. We also use photos and videos of your injuries to show pain and suffering.

By gathering the necessary evidence to show your condition, we are providing information and proof to the court, insurance company, or jury that shows how much money you should get for pain and suffering.  There is not a calculator or certain way to provide a dollar amount for pain and suffering, because it is up to the jury. A jury can award compensation for pain and suffering based on many different factors including the credibility of the witnesses at trial.  Having good records detailing your condition can help bolster your claim for pain and suffering compensation in light of the subjective factors.      

Emotional distress.  This compensation is related to the mental and emotional toll on the injured person after an accident.  This makes sense. A severe injury does not just affect your body, but it also affects your mind and your emotions.  Depending on the severity of the accident, a personal injury victim could suffer anxiety and depression, along with serious mental trauma from the accident.  We often see people with post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from bad accidents.

In order to recover damages for emotional distress, you typically need records from a therapist, physiatrist, psychologist, or mental health professional.      

Wrongful Death.  A wrongful death claim is a civil action filed by the living survivors of a person who was killed in an accident due to the negligence or misconduct of someone else or a company.  In these cases, the survivors are left without the companionship, love, support, and income of the person who was killed. Courts and juries can award compensation for this.

The compensation for damages in a wrongful death case can help the family with the financial burdens that come with the loss of a loved one.  Wrongful death compensation is awarded to help cover the lost income, medical bills, and funeral expenses that the family will face because of the death of their loved one.  Also, Georgia law allows for things such as loss of companionship, instruction, and guidance for a child who loses a parent.      

Loss of consortium.  This applied to married people.  If you or someone you love are in an accident and injured in sucha  way that you cannot have the same level of relationship with your spouse or partner–or if one of you were killed in an accident–then you may be eligible for damages for loss of consortium.  This is also sometimes called “loss of companionship.”

Punitive Damages.  Under Georgia law, a plaintiff can be eligible for something called “punitive damages” in certain cases.  This type of damages is designed to punish defendants whose actions were particularly bad. These damages are not there to help make the plaintiff “whole” after an accident, but instead to punish the defendant and to deter the bad conduct in the future.  In other words, punitive damages can show people and companies that the conduct was bad and they should not do it again in the future.

For a court to allow punitive damages compensation to a plaintiff, the actions that led to the injury must have been intentional or willful misconduct that was reckless.  An example of this can be driving under the influence of alcohol and hurting someone. Georgia law allows compensation for punitive damages.     

What does your personal injury lawyer do?

As your personal injury lawyer, we are the team that stands up for you and fights to get you the compensation you need in a personal injury lawsuit.  

The first thing we do is investigate your case and gather all of the necessary evidence. Then we use that evidence to build the strongest possible case. Here are some of the things we do in the personal injury lawsuit process:

  • Visit the scene of the accident to investigate
  • Speak to witnesses
  • Review all documents
  • Evaluate the nature of the accident and what happened 
  • Work with medical experts
  • View and analyze any photos and video
  • Work with experts who can recreate the scene of an accident

This is just a sampling of the things that your lawyer will do throughout the personal injury lawsuit. We use the information we gather to go toe-to-toe with the defense lawyers, and we do not stop fighting until we get you the compensation you deserve. We strive for maximum compensation in every single case.  

Many times, we are able to build a strong case and win a good settlement in a settlement meeting or in negotiations. But, sometimes insurance companies and big corporations try to get off cheap, so we take them to court.

We do not let insurance company low-ball offers scare us. We know what our client’s cases are worth and we fight for every dollar.  

What is your role in the lawsuit?

As your lawyer, we take as much stress off of your shoulders as we can.  While you focus on getting better and back on your feet, we do all the work needed to build your case.  But, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Attend all medical treatment to get better
  • Don’t admit fault for your injuries
  • Document your good days and bad days due to your injuries
  • Inform your lawyer of any documentation you have (photos of injuries or damages cars, police reports, medical bills, insurance documents)

What is the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit?

Personal injury lawsuits have very strict deadlines in Georgia. This law is called the “statute of limitations.” It means that you have 2 years from the date of the accident to file the lawsuit. If you wait too long, then you will not be able to make a claim for compensation. If you have been injured, you should consider hiring a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to make sure you do not lose the opportunity to seek compensation.
