Evidence Proving Negligence is Critical in a Georgia Injury Claim

Just showing that you were injured in an accident isn't enough to recover compensation in a Georgia injury claim. You need to identify another party that was responsible for causing your accident and show they were negligent when they caused your accident.

There are few cases where accidents can be completely avoided and in most Georgia injury claims it is the negligence of another party that causes a serious accident and injuries to occur. Georgia negligence laws allow for you to be partially at fault for your injuries, but the majority of the negligence (50% or more) needs to fall on the part of the defendant.

The evidence you need to support your Georgia personal injury claim will need to show that not only did you sustain serious injury in the accident, but that your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of the other party.
Your medical reports and bills will serve as evidence of your injuries, but the more difficult part of your claim falls to proving that the negligence of the other party caused those injuries.

These cases are often known as "but for" cases, as you would not have been injured but for the actions of the other party. If the other driver hadn't been speeding and crashed into you after running a red light, you wouldn't have been injured. You would be uninjured but for the negligent actions of the other party.

When you file a Georgia injury claim you will need to prove negligence of another party caused your injuries and damages if you are to receive any compensation. Your evidence in this case is critical, and a Peachtree City personal injury attorney will be able to help you prove the negligence in your case lies with the other party.
