In cases involving personal injuries and accidents, determining what your claim is worth is more than just adding up medical bills and damages to property. It is important to take into consideration the impact your injury could have on your life in the future, psychically, emotionally, and financially. When determining what your injury claim may be worth, it is important consider the following factors:

  • The potential for suffering chronic conditions, with could result in periodic relapses and require ongoing treatment;
  • The impacts health problems could have now and in the future on your ability to participate in activities and do the things you enjoy;
  • The potential for permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Lasting disabilities that could affect your ability to work in your chosen field and could impact your earning potential and future savings.

All of these things and more need to be carefully considered when calculating the total amount your personal injury claim may be worth. Unfortunately, these are often the type of expenses that are either left out or underestimated when dealing with insurance companies. To get a truly accurate estimate of what your claim is worth is to contact our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys for a free case review.

In the aftermath of an accident, injured victims often mistakenly believe that the insurance company is on their side and will help them to get the amount of compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The insurer is operating a business, and like any business, their bottom line is making money. In order to accomplish this, companies often limit administrative costs by limiting the amount of time and effort spent on each claim, with the result being that offers to settle your claim may be far less than what you expected or what your case is actually worth. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance, avoid signing an insurance release accepting settlement of your accident claim before doing the following:

  • Conducting your own investigation into the costs associated with replacing or repairing any property damaged in the accident;
  • Speaking with your doctor about the prognosis for your injuries, any future treatments you may require, and any lasting effects or disabilities you may suffer;
  • Keeping a written record of all bills and statements you have received, as well as all correspondence you have had with the company and its representatives; and
  • Consulting with a legal professional before signing a release accepting a settlement amount.

You have one chance to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It pays to have our experienced personal injury attorneys working on your behalf and negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

In the aftermath of an accidental injury, it does not take long for medical bills to come flooding in. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these bills and other costs associated with your injuries. How do you manage these medical costs while waiting for your case to settle? You can always elect to have your bills paid through your own private insurance. If you do this, you are still free to receive compensation for these costs through your insurance claim or through a personal injury lawsuit. Your other option is to have our attorneys file a letter of protection on your behalf with your medical providers. This letter lets them know that you are involved in a lawsuit, and assures creditors that they will be paid through the proceeds of your suit or claim.

While most accident victims want to get the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, many have concerns about actually taking their cases to court. According to statistics from Black’s Law Dictionary, in approximately 95 percent of personal injury cases, the injured party receives a settlement without ever having to step foot in a courtroom. A major reason that insurance companies are willing to settle is that a court proceeding will likely result in increased costs, such as court fees and legal expenses.

Any money saved by offering you less than what your claim is worth is cancelled out by these costs. Additional motivation for at-fault parties to settle is that if a claim amount cannot be agreed upon and the case goes to trial, a judge will then set the amount, which is again likely to involve additional costs, thereby eliminating any savings for the insurer or at fault party.

When you see advertisements on television for Carrollton personal injury lawyers, they make it seem like they take every client that walks in their door. This is not the case. Any lawyer you meet needs to thoroughly review your case before they promise to represent you. There are three (3) main things they need to consider before they even think about taking you on as a client. These things involve the following:

  • Is your case worth more than a couple of thousand dollars?
  • Is there an actual or potential conflict of interest?
  • How much time is left under the statute of limitations?

The answers to these questions will help them determine if they want to handle your case. The only way to know for sure is to call and set up your free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Carrollton.

Does the Lawyer Have a Conflict of Interest?

Your Carrollton personal injury lawyer may decline the case due to a conflict of interest. If your attorney represented the defendant in any prior case, they won’t be able to handle your case. The rationale behind this is that they may not be able to set aside what they know about their prior client.

This can make it very difficult for them to work on your case. Their only option would be to get everyone involved to sign a waiver. However, this rarely happens. You don’t want to take it personally if the attorney tells you they can’t represent you due to a prior conflict of interest.

You May Have Already Missed the Statute of Limitations

In Georgia, there’s something called a statute of limitations. This is a law that spells out how long you have to file a suit. For any personal injury case, the statute of limitations is two (2) years. If you don’t plan on meeting with a Carrollton personal injury lawyer early on, you could run into a statute issue.

For example, imagine you get hurt on September 1, 2019. Your filing deadline is September 1, 2021. If you don’t meet with an attorney until the middle of July, they won’t have enough time to prepare your case. It’s not just a matter of filing a complaint and waiting for the defendant to respond.

Your attorney wants to have plenty of time to properly prepare your case before they file suit. This can take at least 3-4 months minimum.

Your Case May Only Be Worth a Few Hundred Dollars

Just because you were involved in an accident, that doesn’t mean you’re automatically entitled to damages. In order to recover damages, your Carrollton, GA personal injury lawyer needs to prove several things. First, they need to prove that the defendant was negligent. They also need to show that you didn’t contribute to the accident or your injuries.

They also need to demonstrate that you suffered certain damages. If they can’t do this, then it doesn’t make sense for them to pursue the case. Or if they find that your case is only worth a few hundred dollars, they wouldn’t want to take your case on. That doesn’t mean they won’t be willing to write a simple demand letter on your behalf. Make sure you clarify this in your meeting.

Call and Set Up a Meeting with One of Our Carrollton Personal Injury Lawyers

It can be overwhelming to meet with a Carrollton personal injury lawyer. If you’ve never been involved in something like this, it can be scary. The good news is that your only job is to be upfront and honest. As long as you tell your attorney the truth, you can’t go wrong. Now, that doesn’t guarantee that they’ll be willing or able to handle your case.

You have to keep in mind – your lawyer wants to make sure the case is worth their efforts. But they also want to make sure they’re the right attorney for the job. If they feel they can’t fully represent your interests, they’ll tell you that upfront. The last thing they want to do is waste your time or their time.

The only way to find out if your case is worth pursuing is to schedule a free consultation with one of our Georgia personal injury lawyers. Set up a date and time that works for you. You can conduct your consultation over the phone, online, or in person. Just figure out what is best for you and your attorney. And remember, the initial consultation is free. You really have nothing to lose.
