Questions for a Personal Injury Lawyer

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

Each personal injury claim is different. Some personal injury claims can be settled for a fair amount of money damages, but some cases must be filed in Court requesting a jury verdict to be resolved for a fair and reasonable amount. Generally, the worse your physical injuries and greater your financial loss, the greater the value of your personal injury claim.  However, the estimated value of your case may be lower if proving the defendant's negligence under your fact pattern is more difficult.

During your free initial consultation at Maniscalco Law, you will discuss the facts of your personal injury claim with a skilled and experienced accident injury lawyer.  

How can I recover financial compensation (money damages) for my personal injury claim?

In order to recover financial compensation for your personal injuries caused by another's negligence, you (i.e., a plaintiff) must prove:

  1. The defendant owed a duty to you (for example, to drive a reasonable speed under the prevailing road conditions)
  2. The defendant breached that legal duty owed to you (for example, defendant was speeding)
  3. That the defendant's breach of duty legally caused your injuries (physical injuries, which include pain and suffering, permanent impairment, etc., and financial loss, which include wages, lost profits, medical bills, car repairs, etc.)
  4. Your claim for damages resulting from another's negligence must also be filed in the appropriate Georgia Court within Georgia's statute of limitations.  If you fail to file your claim within the applicable statute of limitations, your claim will dismissed by the Court and lost.

Proving negligence to recover money damages for your personal injuries requires the careful and thoughtful application of the case facts to the law, and a detailed knowledge of the Georgia Court system including the judges within the system. Marshaling all forms of evidence, including lay and expert witnesses, documents, and physical evidence to prove your case to a jury is a must. Having a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer and legal team is essential to your success in recovering the maximum amount of money for your personal injuries.  With Maniscalco Law, you will have an accident attorney with a proven record of success in getting maximum recovery and client satisfaction.  See our reviews.
