What Types of Damages Can I Recover?
Some types of economic damages (meaning those with financial values) you can get include:
- Hospital bills
- Doctors’ visits
- Mental health counseling
- Missed work
You can also recover non-economic damages (meaning those without pre-determined financial values), which include:
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
- Loss of independence
- Diminished earning capacity
If you are unsure of what your case is worth, we can get to the bottom of it. Fortunately, Georgia does not have a cap on non-economic damages like pain and suffering, so we can negotiate an amount that suits your situation.
We Can Calculate the Cost of Your Injury-Related Expenses
Our team will determine the value of your losses by reviewing your employment records, receipts, and invoices.
Some factors we take into account while valuing your case are:
- Your anticipated recovery period
- What it means to reach maximum medical improvement

You Must Abide by Georgia’s Statute of Limitations
If the insurance company denies your claim, you cannot agree on a settlement, or the negligent party did not have insurance, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit. In Georgia, your filing deadline will depend on how you were hurt or whether you lost a loved one.
For most personal injury and wrongful death cases, you generally have two years to file your case, as explained by O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33. However, this deadline could be even shorter if you are suing a city, county, or the state. O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5 says that you could have as little as six months to sue a city.
Our team can evaluate your circumstances and explain how long you have to file your case. We do not want you to miss out on your right to recover damages.

How Does Kaine Law Pursue Compensation?
By conducting an investigation into your case, we can compile proof of negligence. We must prove that the at-fault party caused you harm because they acted recklessly or carelessly.
Photos, witness statements, and police reports can all help create a timeline of events that showcases where the negligent party deviated from their duty of care.
Some forms of negligence that cause personal injuries include:
- Drunk driving
- Puddles or loose flooring
- Design flaws
- Distracted driving
- Unrestrained dogs
- Equipment malfunctions
- A lack of signage
- Failure to yield
- Inadequate security measures
The cause of your accident will give us important information on how to proceed.
