If you or someone you love was injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, then you may be able to seek compensation for your losses.
You don’t have to bear the costs of your injury on your own. An Austell personal injury lawyer from Kaine Law can help you hold the other party accountable and help you seek a recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
How a Personal Injury Lawyer from Our Firm Can Help You
A personal injury lawyer from our team can help you pursue compensation by investigating your case, negotiating on your behalf, and fighting for your compensation after someone else’s negligence leaves you injured.
We Will Determine What Happened in Your Accident
In order to determine who is responsible for your losses, we will investigate your case. We will uncover evidence to connect your injuries to someone else’s negligence.
We may suggest that more than one party is responsible for causing your accident. Responsible parties could include:
- A private individual or multiple individuals
- A private business or company
- A state or municipality
Once a personal injury lawyer from our team investigates your case, we will be able to advise you of your options so that you can make the best possible decision about pursuing compensation.
We Will Negotiate on Your Behalf
Once we have built your case with the evidence we uncovered through investigation, we will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. We will work for your best interests, fighting for the compensation you may need while you focus on recovering from your injuries with your loved ones.
If an insurance company tries to make you a lower offer than you may deserve, we will fight for fair compensation.
We Will Take Your Case to Court If Necessary
If it is not possible to negotiate with the insurance company for a fair amount, then we may advise you to pursue your legal options. This could mean taking your case to trial to advocate for your rights before a judge or jury.
This is why it can be important to find a trial lawyer to represent you who is not afraid of taking a case to court if necessary. We will see your case through from start to finish.

This includes financial compensation for things like:

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Georgia
According to O.C.G.A § 9-3-33, the statute of limitations for bringing a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia is generally two years.
However, there may be circumstances that affect this time period. For example, if you only discovered your injury recently, you may have more time to file a lawsuit.
