We will work our hardest to get you the compensation that your claim is worth.
If someone else caused your accident, you may be entitled to receive several types of compensation. This compensation is also known as damages. You may receive economic damages for your accident-related injuries, which include compensation for your:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical treatment costs
- Loss of wages or income
- Future loss of wages or income
- Loss of future earning ability
- Property damage
You may also receive non-economic damages for your accident-related injuries, which include compensation for your:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Decline in quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Loss of consortium (decline in personal relationships)
If the person who caused your injuries willfully engaged in misconduct or acted with malice, wantonness, fraud, oppression, or a complete lack of care as to the consequences of their actions, they may be required to pay you punitive damages. These damages serve to punish the wrongdoer in civil court, and you have to prove the responsible parties’ actions with clear and convincing evidence. As a result, they’re rarely awarded.
In Georgia, if you bore any responsibility for the accident, you may only be entitled to receive reduced damages or no damages at all. This is because George is a contributory negligence state. Georgia’s contributory negligence law states that if you were responsible for any part of the accident, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your fault (if you were 30 percent responsible for the accident, your damages would be reduced by 30 percent). But if you were responsible for 50 percent or more of the accident, you aren’t entitled to recover anything at all.
