Any sort of injury can have a serious impact on someone’s life, but the impact of an injury that someone else caused can’t be overstated. Not only is the injury just as painful, but there is the added frustration of knowing that if they had acted responsibly in their behavior, you likely would not be dealing with the injuries and the fallout from your accident that they caused. While no amount of cash will be able to undo the impacts of your accident, there is no reason that you should be held financially responsible for someone else’s behaviors.
This is why working with a personal injury attorney to get the money you deserve — whether through an insurance claim or a lawsuit in the Georgia courts — is one of the most important steps that you can take in the early days following your accident.
When a victim files an insurance claim, the insurance adjuster quickly jumps into action in order to identify every possible way to reduce the final settlement amount. This is because insurance companies make their money by collecting premiums and settling claims for as little as possible. When a victim is suffering from the pain of their injuries and is working to get their lives back to normal at the same time, it can be easy for the insurance company to leverage their financial stress and convince them to accept a low settlement offer.
We offer a free initial consultation for personal injury victims so that we can discuss the accident in great detail and provide the victim with advice about what to do next. In addition, we can help you understand the benefits of working with an attorney while you focus on your own personal needs. Reducing your stress throughout this process should be a significant goal, and when someone else is handling your legal needs, it is much easier to stay calm and focus on your recovery.
Filing an insurance claim is simple enough, but getting the money you deserve is where it gets complicated. This is why we encourage you to contact us before you file your claim, and let us handle the entire process for you from day one. Each statement that you make, each piece of evidence or documentation you submit, and every conversation you have with the insurance adjuster will be closely examined in order to identify loopholes or technicalities meant to reduce your settlement. Your attorney will be able to handle each of these interactions through a lens of professional experience and will be able to take steps meant to maximize your settlement throughout each discussion. In addition, your lawyer will be able to provide you with advice about how to handle things like interviews and medical exams that the insurance company requires you to submit to.

Personal injuries are those that may happen due to car accidents, using or consuming defective products, wrongful death cases, or slip and fall accidents, just to name a few. Social wrongs or defamation of character also qualify as personal injuries under the law. In order for the victims of these injuries to be compensated, personal injury claims are filed.
In these cases, the plaintiff is the individual who was injured or their family or estate in the case of wrongful death. The defendant is against whoever the case is brought.
In the state of Georgia, Code section 9-3-33 specifies: “Actions for injuries to the person shall be brought within two years after the right of action accrues.” This means simply that an injury claim has to be filed within two years from the date the accident happened.
The reasons why personal injuries arise are many and, in most of them, the accidents do not happen intentionally but because someone was either careless or negligent in the way they acted. That is why, when bringing a personal injury claim, it is necessary to prove these four elements:
Both economic and non-economic damages can be included in these claims. Economic damages are those that are easier to quantify since they involve such matters as your medical bills to cover treatment, prescription drugs, and any treatment you receive. They may also cover lost wages that you were unable to receive because your injuries have kept you from going to work. Non-economic damages may include pain and suffering, lack of companionship, loss of enjoyment of life, and others. At The Issa Law Firm, your Atlanta personal injury attorney will work with you to establish the amount that can be claimed.
Obviously, each case is unique and the circumstances that led to the accident and the injuries sustained are also quite different in each case. However, in general terms, the average payout amount in personal injury claims runs between $3,000 and $75,000, depending on the type of case. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney from The Issa Law Firm will help ensure that you get the maximum amount for your damages.
The process of recovering damages in personal injury cases is very complex. Also, insurance companies are well versed in the different strategies that ensure you will be offered the lowest amount possible. Don’t jeopardize your case, schedule a consultation with The Issa Law Firm today.
