What Personal Injury 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:

  1. 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.
  2. Get to safety. You should get away from anything dangerous, like a car on fire.
  3. 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.
  4. Photograph the accident scene. These photos help us visualize the accident. Use your phone or ask someone else to take pictures.
  5. Speak with witnesses. Ask them if you can have their name and contact information.
  6. Avoid admitting fault. Anything you say could ultimately undercut your compensation claim. Say as little as possible.
  7. Go to the hospital for treatment. Once you finish at the accident scene, you should prioritize receiving medical care.
  8. 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.

Financial Compensation

A thorough examination of your case will be conducted by a personal injury attorney in Peachtree City to determine the appropriate party to file a lawsuit against and the amount of compensation that can be sought. We have great success settling cases outside the courthouse.

Our firm requests compensation for various categories of damages.

Medical Bills

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. Additional medical attention is necessary for more severe injuries.

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 attorneys can seek restitution for lost earnings or salaries, which may include income from freelance work or self-employment.

Property Damage

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 the damage is extensive, to buy a replacement. Other damaged property includes smartphones and pets damaged in an accident.

Pain and Suffering

Our Peachtree City attorneys specializing in personal injury cases are experienced in seeking compensation for both physical and emotional pain. This category covers losses like physical pain and discomfort, as well as emotional distress. Anyone who suffered scarring or disfigurement could also seek monetary damages.

Personal Injury Deadlines

We urge individuals who have been involved in accidents to promptly contact The Jewkes Firm. 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.

Frequently Questions?

Do I need a personal injury attorney?

The Jewkes Firm is well-versed in effectively challenging major insurance companies on your behalf to secure the highest settlement permissible by law. Our primary objective is to ensure your optimal recovery. It is only after this point that we assess the worth of your case.

What is the deadline for filing an injury case in Georgia?

The timeframe for filing an injury case, also known as the statute of limitations, can vary significantly. As per OCGA §9-3-33, you are granted a two-year period from the date of your injuries or the passing of a family member to initiate your personal injury claim.

What is the cost to hire a personal injury attorney?

There is no upfront cost associated with hiring a personal injury lawyer. Our fees are based on a percentage of your settlement, meaning you only pay if we successfully recover compensation. Our top priority is ensuring your well-being and helping you return to your normal life.

What damages can you recover from a personal injury?

A personal injury lawyer aims to establish negligence and seek restitution for the harm caused by the liable party. Additionally, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral costs, medical expenses, and income lost if you are a family member of someone who died as a result of an injury.
