How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

Determining if you have a valid claim will vary depending on the circumstances of your case. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will assess the strength of your case and, if you have grounds to move forward, guide you through the legal process.  

In most personal injury cases, you must prove the other party was negligent. Therefore, you will typically need to establish the following four elements: 

  • Duty: You must prove the other party owed you a duty of care. 
  • Breach: You must show that the other party breached that duty. 
  • Injury: You need to establish that the breach caused an injury. 
  • Damages: You must establish that you suffered losses because of your injury.  

To establish these elements, your Macon personal injury attorney will investigate your accident and collect evidence to build your case. Such evidence will include medical records, photographs, witness statements, accident reports, and other relevant documentation. 

If your attorney determines you have a case and you decide to move forward with a lawsuit, the process typically follows these steps: 

  1. Your attorney will file a formal complaint to start the lawsuit.  
  2. The defending party formally responds to the complaint. 
  3. A pre-trial conference is held, and a judge schedules deadlines. 
  4. You share evidence in the discovery phase. 
  5. Motions are made before the trial begins. 
  6. Pre-trial orders are determined, and the trial proceeds. 

Data shows that about 95 percent of pending lawsuits end in a pre-trial settlement, meaning there is a relatively small chance that your case will go to trial. However, the skilled team at Farah & Farah prepares every case like it is going to trial. You can rest assured that we are working hard for your best interests. 

What Types of Damages Can You Recover?

The types of damages you may receive depend on the specifics of your case. Common damages in personal injury cases include: 

  • Economic damages: These are quantifiable damages for specific monetary losses, such as medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and lost earning capacity.  
  • Non-economic damages: These damages are more subjective and harder to quantify, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of support and a relationship, or any other intangible loss. 
  • Punitive damages: These are meant to punish the defendant and deter future misconduct. They are typically awarded in cases involving clear and convincing evidence of particularly egregious negligence or intentional misconduct. In Georgia, punitive damages in most personal injury cases are limited to $250,000.    

Factors such as the severity of your injuries can influence the amount awarded. A personal injury attorney can help you understand what damages you are entitled to under your circumstances. They will advocate for your rights and negotiate settlements on your behalf.

How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take To Settle?

On average, settlements made directly with your insurance company can take less than a year to complete.  

However, accepting a settlement offer from your insurance company is an important decision. You want to ensure you accept an offer based on a thorough understanding of your case, the extent of the damages you are owed, future medical costs related to your injury, and whether there are any questions or concerns around liability. If you are unsure if an insurance company’s offer is fair, it’s best to seek guidance from an experienced personal injury attorney.  

Our skilled team settles most cases within several months. However, complex cases may take longer. 

What Are the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Georgia?

The Georgia statute of limitations for personal injury cases is generally two years, meaning you have two years from your accident to file your lawsuit. If you are filing a workers’ compensation claim, you must file within one year of your accident. 

It’s essential to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to file your personal injury case within the appropriate time frame. We have over 40 years of experience and can correctly determine how the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia applies to your lawsuit. 

Types of Claims Our Macon Personal Injury Lawyers Handle

We handle a variety of personal injury cases across Georgia. Selecting a personal injury attorney with substantial experience handling your type of claim is essential. We are skilled in nearly all areas of personal injury law in Macon, including: 

Car Accidents 

Often times car accidents in Macon occur when careless drivers get behind the wheel. They may be drunk, distracted, or tired. Other drivers may also put you at risk by speeding, failing to obey traffic signs and signals, or driving aggressively. There were 6,715 crashes in Macon alone in 2022. Let the personal injury attorneys from Farah & Farah help you understand these cases and file your claim.    

Truck Accidents 

Georgia is among the top 10 states for truck accidents, with 6,667 accidents occurring in 2022. As with car accidents, truckers may be driving while drowsy or impaired. Multiple parties beyond the driver can be held liable for these types of accidents, including the trucking company, manufacturer, or even the state itself, depending on the condition of the roadways. We can help you navigate truck accident cases in Macon and throughout Georgia.   

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcycle accidents in Georgia often occur because motorcycles can be harder to see than other types of vehicles. These kinds of accidents also can lead to severe injuries and fatalities. There were 60 accidents involving motorcyclists in the city of Macon in 2022. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, the Macon personal injury attorneys at Farah & Farah will investigate the contributing factors and hold the parties who caused the crash responsible. 

Slip and Fall Accidents 

Slip and fall accidents can result in serious consequences, including spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries. Numerous hazards can lead to these types of injuries, and the property owner where your accident occurred may be liable. If you have experienced a slip and fall accident in Macon, we will thoroughly investigate, gather the necessary evidence, and move forward to ensure you receive just compensation.   

Workers’ Compensation 

Workers’ compensation is insurance paid for by employers to cover employees injured on the job. This insurance should pay your medical expenses and help you recoup some of your lost wages due to your accident. When an employer or insurer denies your claim, an experienced Macon, GA, workers’ compensation lawyer can pursue your case to ensure you receive what you’re owed.   

Medical Malpractice 

Medical malpractice occurs when you sustain injuries due to a health care provider’s failure to provide a reasonable standard of care. Instances of medical malpractice include deviations from accepted medical practices, omitting necessary tests, neglecting to seek guidance from a specialist, or making inept decisions during surgical procedures. 

Wrongful Death 

According to the National Safety Council, accidental deaths were the fourth-leading cause of death in Georgia in 2021, with 6,353 fatalities considered preventable. If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of negligence, you may have a case for a wrongful death lawsuit in Georgia. Hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to determine if you can file a lawsuit and recover damages for your distress, hardship, and financial losses. Our team of Macon attorneys is empathetic and devoted to supporting you during this difficult time.
