Types of Personal Injury Cases in Atlanta
There is no shortage of ways that someone’s careless choices can lead to injuries. Some of the most common causes of accident injuries in and around Atlanta include:
When another passenger car or a large commercial truck collides with you on the road, you and any passengers with you can suffer injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. The risk of severe injuries is even greater if you are on a motorcycle or bicycle when you are struck.
In a motor vehicle wreck, the auto liability insurance company for the at-fault driver typically pays compensation to those who are hurt. However, if these benefits are insufficient, or an uninsured motorist strikes you, you may need to pursue a claim for additional damages in court.
Both businesses and individuals who own property around Atlanta have certain legal obligations if they invite or allow others to come onto their properties. These include a responsibility to make their properties reasonably safe for those who are invited or allowed to use them.
A variety of hazards can injure visitors or customers, such as:
Wet or slippery floors
Trip hazards like toys, electrical cords, or uneven walkways
Falling hazards, such as products that are placed precariously on high shelves
Dangerous or aggressive animals that are not properly restrained
Most property owners have insurance policies that cover medical bills and other financial losses you will face because of an injury on someone else’s property. However, you may need to bring a claim against the property owner directly if their insurance policy does not cover all your economic and non-economic losses.
Construction Zone Injuries
A construction worksite can be a dangerous place for both workers and people near the site. Falling objects, heavy machinery, and exposed wiring are just a few of the many hazards that can leave you or a loved one with severe injuries.
One obstacle to recovering compensation following construction site accidents is determining which subcontractor or contractor bears responsibility for your injuries. Your lawyer will be able to discover which party should be held accountable for the harm you suffered.
Any injury accident has the potential to cause your loved one’s death. Such a tragedy imposes profound loss upon your family that includes more than funeral expenses, final medical expenses, and lost wages. You and your surviving family members will certainly suffer from the emotional and mental trauma of losing your loved one suddenly.
Wrongful death cases can compensate the immediate family members of a decedent for the financial toll accompanying the loss of their loved one. These cases can also compensate you for losing your loved one’s companionship.
Compensation Available to Atlanta Personal Injury Victims
A successful personal injury case or claim awards you compensation for any economic and non-economic harm you suffered in the accident. This can include the following losses:
Your medical bills and ongoing treatment needs
The value of time you missed away from work during recovery
Any personal property damaged in the accident, such as your vehicle
Counseling or therapy to address PTSD, anxiety, and other similar conditions
Incidental costs like the cost of a rental car or medical device
Your emotional and mental pain and suffering
While punitive damages are not generally applicable in most personal injury cases, they may be recoverable if the other party acted with extreme indifference to your safety. Your Seay/Felton, LLC Trial Lawyers team can examine your case and determine whether you might be entitled to recover these additional damages.
