Personal Injury Attorneys

Georgia Trial Attorneys is a group of legal professionals with passion and dedication to representing individuals and the families of individuals who have been injured. We handle complex personal injury cases that involve claims that have originated from vehicle accidents, public transportation, truck accidents, premise liability, and many other areas of personal injury law.

What Is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is when an individual has suffered physical damages and sometimes permanent or long lasting disability due to the wrongful conduct of another. Even wrongful death. The injured party then sues those responsible for the damages caused by their negligence. The injured party seeks monetary compensation, often with the help of an experienced attorney. Typically, an injured party will request compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and disability.

What are the Statute of Limitations?

In the state of Georgia, the statute of limitations describes the time period in which an injured person must file his or her lawsuit. If a suit is not filed by the deadline, then the personal injury case will not be accepted and it cannot be re-filed. Knowing your statute of limitation is critical.  Your personal injury attorney will provide you with this information.

In Georgia, the time you have for filing a case for negligence that causes injury to a person is two (2) years from the date on which the injury or death occurred. The time for filing a  case for minors and people who are legally incompetent (such as mental illness) at the time of the injury can be extended until the minor becomes an adult, or the incompetence is no longer an issue.

However, if your personal injury case is against a governmental agency, the rules provide that advanced notice requirements (called “ante-litem” notice requirements) be met.

Are there monetary limits on damages?

All states differ on the subject of limiting the amount of damages for personal injury cases. The limitations, or caps, are the amount of damages or losses that an injured party may receive, depending on the type of case.  In the state of Georgia, there are no caps to damages or losses in medical malpractice or other kinds of personal injury cases.

Bicycling Accidents

High gas prices, nice weather, and healthier lifestyles have contributed to more bicycles on the road, and therefore more bicycle accidents. “Dooring” – although unintentional, is quite common.

This is the second instance where we have relied upon Mr. Grant’s experience and expertise in resolving a critical car accident/violation matter. As with the first case, the results of the second case was fabulous. Although no result can be guaranteed, I like my odds much better when Mr. Grant is at my table.

Fall Injury Fact: If you fall and hurt yourself, the other party is liable only if their actions were a breach of legal duty that caused your fall. As the plaintiff, it is your burden to prove this. You must prove it by a preponderance of the evidence, which means you have to prove that- more likely than not- the defendant was negligent in creating the conditions that led to your fall.
