Georgia Personal Injury
If you have been involved in a major car accident you might be curious to know whether or not you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver involved in the accident along with a traditional insurance claim. A personal injury lawsuit is simply when one party files a civil suit against the entity or person responsible for their injuries so that they may attempt to recover. Just because you were injured to some degree in a car accident doe not automatically mean that you can file a valid personal injury lawsuit. The first thing that a lawyer will look for in determining if your case qualifies is if you did, in fact, suffer a personal injury.
A personal injury can be a physical one or a mental one. If you broke your leg or slipped a disc in your back, that is a personal injury. If you are now suffering from anxiety, insomnia, or depression, those are also personal injuries. The next thing that an attorney will want to figure out is if the injuries from which you are suffering were in fact caused by the negligence of someone or something else. In other words, it was not your fault and had the other party involved done what they were supposed to do you would not have suffered any injury at all. The third and final thing a lawyer will look into to determine if you are eligible for a personal injury suit is to see if you have recoverable damages. This means that the financial harm or personal harm from which you suffered can be fixed my awarding you money. Some examples of this would be if you incurred hospital bills, therapy bills, lost wages from being unable to work, diminished quality of life, disability accommodations installed in your home, loss of companionship and support, physical pain, emotional pain, and mental suffering.
