Do You Have a Car Accident Personal Injury Case?

Generally speaking, if you have been in a car accident and you have no injuries, you can usually handle working with insurance on your own to get compensated for the damage that was done to your car or truck. But if you have injuries, you should consider a personal injury lawsuit to get you compensated for not only the injuries you are now dealing with, but also the financial and other impact the accident has had on your life. Some of the more common car crash injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • PTSD and other emotional issues

Do not make the mistake of trying to handle your car accident case on your own or settling for less than you deserve- you only get one chance to file a lawsuit, do it right!

How Much is My Car Accident Worth?

Don’t rely on online personal injury settlement calculators to try to research the value of your case! Those overly general valuations can be way off in either direction—giving you a false sense of worth when really only a lawyer looking at the facts of your case can give you an estimate. How much your car accident case is worth depends on so many specifics to your injuries, your life and who the responsible party is. Here are some factors that go into the overall valuation of your case:

  • Current medical bills: A single trip to the emergency room can result in a $10,000 bill. All your medial bills form some, but not all, of the base of your personal injury financial award and also provide important professional documentation of the nature and extent of your accident injuries.
  • Future medical bills: For many, the recovery and medical needs continue after your accident has been settled which is one of the many reasons why working with a lawyer and all the necessary medical professionals is so important to help forecast out what type of medical help you need down the line.
  • Missed work: Did your accident cause you to miss days, weeks or months of work as you recover? This should not be something you pay out of pocket for.
  • Inability to work: For some car accident victims, they may never be able to return to their previous job because of the physical impact of the accident and your inability to work and make an income can be devastating and something that can be included in a winning personal injury case.
  • Disability needs: Changes in housing, special disability requirements and more are taken into account when working on your financial recovery
  • Emotional recovery: PTSD, anxiety and depression are incredibly common emotional issues car accident victims experience and can seek compensation for.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering is a wide-ranging legal term that helps to get you additional compensation intended to reflect the physical and emotional impact the accident has had on your life.

Georgia’s Comparative Negligence Law

Can you still file a car accident personal injury lawsuit if you played a role in accident? Yes, you can and your case can still be worth a lot of money. Different states approach this very common dual liability scenario differently—in Georgia, it is a modified comparative negligence model for all personal injury and wrongful death cases. What that means is that if you are found to be less that 50% at fault for causing your accident, then you can file a suit but if you are found to be more than half responsible, you cannot.

Whether it was distracted driving, running a stop sign or something else, you do not want to miss out on the opportunity to collect some much-needed funds. An experienced car crash lawyer is what you need by your side to argue down your liability so that you are able to still file a winning lawsuit.
