Seeking the Compensation You Need to Recover

Although accidents may occur in a nearly endless variety of situations, most personal injury cases are based on the theory of negligence. In other words, a person or entity may be held responsible for any harm that results from a failure to use the degree of care that would have been appropriate under the circumstances. Ordinary people are expected to act as prudently as a reasonable person would have acted under the same circumstances, while medical professionals and other specialists may be held to a more specific standard. For example, a driver may run a red light, a supermarket may fail to regularly remove debris from its floors, or a doctor may fail to diagnose a patient until long after the diagnosis should have been apparent.

In order to prevail in a negligence claim, your Dunwoody personal injury attorney needs to show that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty to use reasonable care, the defendant breached this duty, and the plaintiff was harmed as a direct result of the defendant’s breach. Sometimes more than one party may be liable for an accident. This is often true in cases involving an employee who was acting in the scope of employment. Careless behavior by an employee in this context, such as a truck driver who causes a crash while on the job, may expose the employer to liability under the doctrine of respondeat superior. To enhance your prospects of receiving proper compensation, it is important to explore all potential legal theories and identify all possible defendants.

Under Georgia law, an injured person may seek both economic and non-economic damages, including, but not limited to:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Property damage
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering

You should be aware that procedural deadlines like the statute of limitations must be followed to preserve your right to compensation. This is one key reason why you should contact Schwartz Trial Law as soon as possible after an accident.
