The Elements of Negligence That Lead to Financial Recovery
Your right to compensation is dependent on proving the at-fault party was negligent, reckless, or careless in causing your action. The legal elements of negligence include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
We collect evidence that proves negligence, including your police, incident, or animal control report. We also compile your medical records, witness statements, and other evidence and documents that substantiate your case.
Our Law Firm Takes the Following Case-Building Steps on Your Behalf
When we say we take care of the details of building your case, we mean it. On your behalf, we will:
- Prove the at-fault party’s negligence
- Assess the financial value of your case
- Compile supporting documents and evidence
- Handle written, verbal, and virtual communication
- Obtain, complete, and submit required forms
- Negotiate with the appropriate insurance company
We also protect you from the costly consequences of Georgia’s fault law. According to O.C.G.A. § 51-12-33, any degree or percentage of contributory negligence assigned to you could reduce the financial damages awarded to you. Our investigation will ensure fault is accurately apportioned and the reduction of your financial award is minimized.

Wrongful Death Compensation

Our law firm will:
- Explain what constitutes wrongful death

- Ensure your family has time to cope with its loss
Damages you can recover include the costs of your loved one’s funeral and burial as well as your family’s loss of financial and familial compensation. We also ensure your case meets all legal parameters and streamline the recovery process as much as possible.
Time Limits on Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury compensation has a state-mandated time limit in Fairburn, Georgia. Per O.C.G.A § 9-3-33, you generally have two years to file your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
- The statutory clock starts on the date the accident occurred in personal injury cases.
- The statutory clock starts on the date of a loved one’s demise in wrongful death cases.
However, if a government or municipal agency is the at-fault party, you generally have as little as six months to file your claim, per O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5. Getting our law firm involved in your case sooner rather than later means we can ensure compliance with the statute of limitations.
Early involvement means we can speak to witnesses while their memories are vivid. It also means we can canvass the accident scene and surrounding area for smartphone, dash-cam, and surveillance video to include in your evidence file.
