If you suffered a broken bones injury after an accident in Norcross that someone else caused, it isn’t fair that you are now dealing with the financial consequences of their negligence.

Our broken bones injury accident attorneys have several decades of experience helping Norcross residents get the compensation they deserve after suffering losses in accidents they didn’t cause. Medical treatment for broken bones is expensive and often leaves injured people unable to work. Our team will fight for you by holding the negligent party in your accident accountable. We will fight to get you compensation for your injuries.
How Can Our Norcross Broken Bones Injury Accident Lawyer Help You?
You have a legal right to demand damages after breaking bones in an accident you didn’t cause. However, simply demanding compensation is not enough. You must also meet the legal standard for proving negligence for your demand for damages to be credible. The broken bones injury accident attorneys from Kaine Law have helped injured clients meet that standard.
Georgia’s negligence standard has four specific points. It begins with the legal principle that everyone has what is referred to as a “duty of care” when interacting with the public. That means they have a legal obligation to act in a manner that minimizes the chances of their behavior injuring another person and/or causing property damage. To hold them accountable for negligence, you must prove:
- They were legally liable to keep you safe from harm.
- Their behavior or actions failed to meet Georgia’s “duty of care” standard to keep you safe from harm.
- This failure to meet that standard caused an accident or incident that led to your injuries.
- The accident left you with compensatory damages for your injuries and other losses.
Kaine Law has been helping our personal injury clients meet this standard and collect damages for several decades. But that’s not all we can do for you. While representing you, we can negotiate directly with the negligent party, file your case on time, and update you on your case’s status. Simply put, we do the fighting so you can focus on what’s most important: recovering from your injuries.

You Have a Limited Time to Demand Damages After Breaking Bones in a Norcross Injury Accident
You must act promptly if you think you have a case to demand damages from the negligent party after your accident. That’s because Georgia law only gives you a limited time to demand damages for your accident. This time limit is known as the statute of limitations. It generally allows injured parties to demand damages two years from the accident date (O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33).
If you don’t make your damage demand before it expires, you may not be able to in the future. As a Kaine Law client, you don’t have to worry about that. Part of our commitment to our clients is making sure we file their cases in the appropriate jurisdiction before the statute of limitations expires.

What Are the Potential Recoverable Damages After an Accident That Causes Broken Bones?
In Georgia, recoverable damages fall into two categories. Economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages refers to your accident’s expenses. Examples of economic damages are:
- Medical expenses (e.g., surgery costs, setting the broken bones, making the cast, or any other medical procedures necessary to treat your injuries)
- Post-accident medical care (e.g., physical therapy, in-home assistance, or any ongoing care your recovery requires)
- Lost income (the total value of any income or wages you could not earn because of your injuries)
Non-economic damages refer to things like pain and suffering or emotional trauma brought on by your injuries. For example, if you can’t work because you broke your bones in an accident, it’s very likely that you experienced elevated levels of mental stress or anxiousness during your recovery. If your injury left you permanently disabled (e.g., amputation), your long-term quality of life is adversely affected.
Our Norcross broken bone injury lawyers will consult with you, your doctors, and, if necessary, mental health professionals to completely understand all your damages. Then, we will make a compensation demand that is in line with your suffering. Our attorneys will always fight to collect the appropriate recoverable damages in your case.
