Seeking Compensation After an Accident in Atlanta

Seeking Compensation After an Accident in Atlanta

After a preventable accident, an injured party may pursue compensation through a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or a civil lawsuit. An injured person may recover both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are monetary losses, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and costs associated with property damage. Conversely, non-economic damages cover subjective losses, including pain, suffering, emotional anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Is It Possible to Recover Compensation Without an Attorney?

While it is not mandatory to hire a lawyer before pursuing a personal injury claim, it is highly recommended. Taking on a case without legal representation could hurt one’s chances of winning full compensation.

Practiced lawyers have years of experience negotiating claims with insurance adjusters and representing injured parties in court. Without legal guidance, an injured party may make mistakes during the legal process or unintentionally accept a low settlement offer.

Is It Possible to Recover Compensation Without an Attorney?

Legal Deadline for Filing a Lawsuit

After an accident caused by another party, it is important to take legal action immediately. According to Georgia Code § 9-3-33, accident victims have two (2) years to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party for compensation.

In some rare cases, the statute of limitations may be extended. However, one should never rely upon a potential exception as they are rare and fact specific.  Generally, judges will dismiss any personal injury claim filed after the two (2) year deadline.
