IF YOU'VE BEEN INJURED
Most Common Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases typically involve people who suffered bodily injuries and financial loss in an accident. They struggle with medical bills and other expenses to try and bravely overcome their injuries.
Personal injuries typically involve:
- Illnesses caused or made worse by negligent medical care
- Traumatic bodily injuries caused by accidents
- Permanent physical disabilities and mental impairments
- Worsening of a pre-existing condition
What Claims Do We Handle?
Our personal injury attorneys can help anyone injured by:
- Auto accidents: We have decades of experience helping motorists injured in a crash seek compensation. Georgia requires that motorists carry liability insurance to cover accidents they cause, and we can negotiate with the at-fault motorist’s insurer.
- Trucking accidents: Large commercial trucks cause serious injuries and death. We often sue a trucker, trucking company, or other entity.
- Bicycle accidents: Cyclists can suffer devastating injuries in a crash with a dangerous driver. Our firm can investigate the crash and seek compensation.
- Dog bites: Georgia law gives victims the right to sue the owner after a dog bite. Serious complications include fractures, scarring, infection, and nerve damage.
- Slip and falls: Property owners must maintain their premises to protect visitors. Many people slip and fall on ice, snow, loose tiles, uneven floorboards, spilled water, and other hazards. We can sue for compensation.
- Medical and dental malpractice. Medical professionals receive decades of training so they can provide competent care. If you were injured by a medical error, we can sue for compensation.
- Birth injuries. Devastating injuries stem from errors made during labor and delivery, including delayed C-section or breech birth.
- Wrongful death. A beloved family member might have died in a fatal accident. Their spouse, children, or parents might sue for wrongful death.
Steps to Take after an Accident
Anyone involved in a Peachtree City accident should focus on ensuring everyone’s safety while also taking steps to protect their legal right to sue. We recommend you:
- Ask everyone involved if they need an ambulance. You can request one by calling emergency services. Also report the location of the accident so a police officer can come to the scene.
- Get to safety. You should get away from anything which is dangerous, like a car on fire.
- Exchange information. If you are involved in a car crash, get personal and insurance information from the other driver. If you are hurt in a slip and fall, speak to the property owner.
- Photograph the accident scene. These photos help us visualize the accident. Use your phone or ask someone else to take pictures.
- Speak with witnesses. Ask them if you can have their name and contact information.
- Avoid admitting fault. Anything you say could ultimately undercut your claim to compensation. Say as little as possible.
- Go to the hospital for treatment. Once you finish at the accident scene, you should prioritize receiving medical care.
- Meet with an attorney. You will want immediate assistance dealing with insurance adjusters and building a claim. We recommend contacting a lawyer soon after the incident.
A personal injury lawyer in Peachtree City will review your case to pin down who to sue and how much we can request. We have great success settling cases outside the courthouse.
Our firm requests compensation for various categories of damages.
Our personal injury clients struggle with serious bodily injuries, including concussions, head injuries, whiplash, nerve damage, organ damage, and back injuries (among others). Injuries like these require extensive medical care, diagnostic tests, and rehabilitation or follow-up. Anyone needing surgery could easily incur more than $10,000 for a minor procedure. More serious injuries require more medical care.
We believe the person who injured you should pay for this care—not you. We will request compensation for all your bills.
Lost Income and Wages
Bodily injuries also prevent many people from returning to work right after an accident. This inability to work causes intense financial stress. Our Peachtree City personal injury lawyers can request compensation to cover lost income or wages, including “gig” or self-employment income.
Some accidents damage a client’s property. A car accident is a common example. You should request compensation to cover the cost of repairs or, if damage is extensive, to buy a replacement. Other damaged property includes smartphones and pets damaged in an accident.
Pain and Suffering
Our Peachtree City personal injury attorneys know how to request compensation for pain and suffering. This category covers losses like physical pain and discomfort, as well as emotional distress. Anyone who suffered scarring or disfigurement could also seek money damages.
Personal Injury Deadlines
At The Jewkes Firm, LLC, we always encourage accident victims to reach out to our firm quickly. Several deadlines could apply to your case:
- If you are suing a government worker or entity, you must submit a notice of claim within 12 months.
- If you are suing because a foreign object was left in your body after surgery, you have one year from the day you discovered the object.
- Most other personal injury cases have a two-year deadline.
Figuring out which deadline applies is complicated. Never assume you have a lot of time. Please call our firm as soon as possible, because you will lose out on compensation if you go over a deadline.
