If you or a loved one have been involved in a car accident in Sandy Springs, call our Sandy Springs accident attorneys at 404-975-1775. Georgia law states a person must bring his claim for an auto accident within two years of the accident; however, not receiving immediate medical treatment or seeking legal representation can prove costly.
We are Smyrna injury and car accident attorneys. We do not handle any type of case other than those in which our clients or their family members suffered an injury from a car accident. This simply means our lawyers devote every moment of their legal practice handling car accidents, tractor trailer accidents, and motorcycle accident cases. By specializing in this manner, we pursue cases that we are most zealous about but it also means we offer our clients a specialized law practice that allows us to apply a precise legal knowledge to our client’s cases for the best results.
Top Priority after a Car Accident: Medical Treatment
It’s critical that you visit your local emergency room as soon as possible after your car accident. Then, it’s important to follow up with your primary physician. We can also help you find a medical doctor or chiropractor if you do not already have one.
If you believe your injuries are minor, it’s still wise to seek treatment in the event you begin to experience new or worsening symptoms a few days after the accident.
As your attorney, we are looking for strong points in your case; conversely, the insurance company is looking for weaknesses in your case and one argument they often use is that there was a “gap in treatment.” This occurs when a person does not seek medical attention in a reasonable time following an accident. For example, someone is involved in an accident and they wait a month before going to the doctor. That would be considered a gap in treatment. Even if you have a gap in treatment, we can still provide you with aggressive legal representation.
What is a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia?
A personal injury lawsuit in Georgia is a method to obtain compensation for an individual who was harmed by the negligence or misconduct of another party. The subject of personal injury lawsuits could be medical malpractice, wrongful death, product liability, vehicle accidents, slip and falls, or any other type of personal injury that resulted in harm, loss or damage to another party.
To prevail in a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia, the plaintiff must show that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty through behavior that rose to the level of negligence or willful misconduct and, as a result, the defendant is legally responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries.
A plaintiff who prevails in a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia may be entitled to so-called “economic” or “compensatory” damages which include medical expenses, lost wages, and out-of-pocket costs. A plaintiff may also be entitled to “non-economic” damages for pain and suffering and emotional distress. These costs are more difficult to quantify, however. In very rare cases, a plaintiff may be entitled to punitive damages from the defendant. These are awarded only in egregious cases, however, where the court feels that the defendant acted intentionally or recklessly.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm today at 404-975-1775. Our Smyrna injury and car accident attorneys are here to walk you through the process.
