When you are seriously injured in an accident involving someone else's negligence, your Georgia personal injury claim will consist of many necessary phases beginning with the day of your accident, and ending the day your claim is resolved.

Preserving and Collecting Evidence

This phase begins the moment you are injured in your accident, and can continue until your claim resolves. As an example, after a car accident in Peachtree, you should immediately take pictures at the crash scene. You should also get all names and numbers from any witnesses, and preserve your clothing if they evidenced trauma.

Seeking Proper Medical Treatment

After an accident you may be taken to the emergency room for medical treatment. If you do not go immediately to the hospital, you should still seek medical attention after your accident as certain injuries-even serious or potentially fatal injuries-may not be apparent directly after the accident has occurred.  

Your medical treatments, corrective surgeries, or rehabilitation may continue long after your accident. Your case will revolve around your commitment to keeping these appointments, and your good faith efforts to recover from your injury.

Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

Hiring the right lawyer for your case is a crucial phase in any Georgia personal injury claim. An experienced, well-qualified personal injury lawyer who knows all laws and practices applicable to your case can help you fight for a full and fair settlement so that you can heal physically, financially, and emotionally from your injury.

Settlement Negotiations

Your Georgia personal injury lawyer will also determine who the liable person and/or entity is for your injuries, and guide you through the process of filing a claim with the responsible party.

An insurance carrier will negotiate directly with your Georgia personal injury lawyer and if a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, your claim may proceed to court.
