If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, you can take legal action to recover damages. An Atlanta personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you hold the negligent party responsible.
Our team represents clients in a range of personal injury cases in and around metro Atlanta. What is more, there are no fees unless you recover compensation.
Compensation for a Personal Injury Case
Damages awarded in a personal injury case should account for all your losses. In some cases, settlements or awards can range in the millions of dollars. We have secured sizable recoveries for our clients, including:
- $11 million for a car accident
- $5.7 million for an accident caused by a roadway defect
- $3.6 million for a rear-end car accident
- $2.7 million for injuries sustained in a bar fight case
- $700,000 for a dog attack
- $650,000 for a motorcycle accident
Types of Recoverable Damages in Personal Injury Cases
- Medical bills and future care: Any medical costs you incurred due to your injuries could be recoverable in a personal injury case. You may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medications, and visits to specialists. Your compensation should cover the cost of future care as well as your current medical expenses.
- Lost wages: If your injuries require a long recovery time, you may have to miss weeks or months of work. Your injuries could also affect your ability to work in the future, lowering your future earning potential. Your settlement or judgment should compensate you for these lost wages and lost earning potential.
- Property damage: Your compensation should cover repairs to your property, such as a vehicle.
- Pain and suffering: Non-economic damages compensate you for the physical and emotional distress you experienced because of your injuries.
How Much Compensation You Could Seek
Your case’s value depends on a number of factors, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- The losses you experienced because of your injuries
- Your partial fault for the accident (we can fight allegations that you contributed to the accident)
Before you accept a settlement offer from the insurance company, speak with a lawyer at Kaine Law. We will review the offer and advise you on whether it covers the full extent of your current and future losses.

Fault & Liability in Personal Injury Cases
Any personal injury case must establish that another party is liable for your injuries. This requires proving the following elements of negligence:
- Duty of care: the defendant had a responsibility to act in a safe and reasonable manner.
- Breach of Duty: the defendant’s careless or reckless actions violated this duty of care.
- Causation: the defendant’s negligence caused your injuries and losses.
- Damages: your injuries led to expenses and losses.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
- Motor vehicle accidents: Car accidents can cause extensive injuries and result in hefty medical bills. If a driver was careless or reckless and caused your accident, you may be able to pursue compensation from that negligent driver. We can also pursue property damage and diminished value cases.
- Motorcycle Accidents: We can assist motorcycle accident victims just as we would our car accident clients. We will identify and hold responsible all negligent parties for your compensation.
- Wrongful death: You can seek compensation for the expenses associated with your loved one’s death. This can include compensation for their final medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and non-economic losses related to their passing.
- Dog bites: If a dog bit you, you may qualify to pursue a case against the dog’s owner to cover your medical bills and other losses
- Premises liability: These cases concern personal injuries that you suffered while on someone else’s property. Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe and free from hazards. If you were hurt at a private residence, a place of business, or another type of property, you may pursue a premises liability case.
- Other vehicle accidents: Lawsuits involving golf carts, ATVs, or boats may seek compensation from negligent operators, product manufacturers, or other parties. Such accidents often involve serious injuries because of the relative lack of protection these vehicles offer occupants.
- Product liability: In these situations, a product ends up causing harm to the user. If you used a product in the way that it was meant to be used, but it still caused you harm due to a manufacturing defect or some other type of error, you may be entitled to seek compensation.
- Train accidents: You could pursue legal action if you were hurt in a train derailment, accident at a railroad crossing, or another incident involving a train or public transport system like Atlanta’s MARTA system.
- Workers’ compensation: You could qualify to pursue a workers’ compensation claim if you were hurt on the job. If a third party is responsible for your work injury, you could qualify to pursue a lawsuit against both that party and your employer.
If somebody else caused your injuries, you could qualify to pursue legal action to recover damages.
