A Lawrenceville personal injury lawyer from Kaine Law can help you gather essential evidence, assess your losses, identify all liable parties, and pursue fair compensation. We will represent you for a contingency fee, so there is no money due unless we win an award for you.

Our Team Can Handle the Complications Involved in Your Injury Case
Our attorneys understand how to handle many different types of injury accidents – and we are also familiar with their common complications. From slip and falls to truck accidents, each type of accident comes with its own unique challenges, and we will use our experience to seek the best results for you.
Consider how our attorneys will handle the following:
Slip and Fall Cases
In a slip and fall case, we will have to prove that a property owner’s negligence was the cause of your injury. So, for instance, we will need to build evidence to show that a wet floor from a leaking cooler was the cause of your fall at Publix or Aldi.
However, there are many ways that the liable party may challenge this case. They may claim that you were in an area of the store that was only meant for employees, that your own physical condition caused your fall (and not the wet floor), or other disputes to your case.
We know how to compile evidence to prove that a property owner was liable, though. We can use records of past violations from the grocery store and seek out security camera footage to show that the owner was negligent.
Truck Accident Cases
Truck accidents can be especially complicated. While a truck driver was the one who hit you, someone else may be responsible for paying you: either a trucking company, a cargo loading company, a parts manufacturer, or another entity.
We will determine who is liable for your semi-truck crash. We can prove liability by gathering evidence from black box data, trucking company logbooks, past violations records, police reports, and more.
Car Accident Cases
Even in seemingly straightforward car accident cases, you could still face challenges. An insurance company may say that:
- Its client was not liable for the crash.
- Your injuries weren’t as serious as you claim.
- You made your own injuries worse.
If you face unfair or aggressive insurance tactics during your claim, our attorneys will help.

Georgia Laws That Could Affect Your Personal Injury Case
It’s important to understand the state and local laws that may affect your case for compensation. Our attorneys can explain these laws and how they may apply to you.
For instance, the following statute of limitations deadlines restrict your timeline to take legal action:
Deadline to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases, O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, gives most people only two years from the date of an injury to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you could be unable to pursue compensation for your losses.
We are ready to help. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get to work on your case.
Deadline to File a Case When a Government Entity Is Liable
In some cases, you may be able to hold a local or state government accountable for your accident. According to O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5, you have six months to file a notice of your lawsuit.
Cases against government entities can involve many details and special procedures. Our attorneys will ensure that all necessary paperwork is filed and that your case is in order.

Kaine Law Can Help You Seek Compensation for a Range of Injury Types
Depending on how you were injured, you could be facing a range of serious health conditions. No matter how seriously you were injured, our team has the experience to help you seek the compensation you need to recover.
We can help you if you’re facing one or more of the following injuries:
Spinal Cord Injury
These are often catastrophic injuries. A spinal cord injury could leave you with complete or incomplete paralysis, and both your upper and lower body could be affected (per Mayo Clinic).
You may require advanced medical attention both immediately after your accident and throughout your life. In the aftermath of the accident, you could need surgery to remove bone fragments in the spine. Then, your doctors may advise treatments to prevent complications from arising; complications could include contractures and respiratory issues. You may also require rehabilitation with the goal of improving your independent motor function.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A TBI can also leave victims with life-altering symptoms. Immediate care after the accident may involve surgery to address potential complications like blood clotting in the brain, per Mayo Clinic.
Then, victims of a serious TBI will often need to undergo years of speech and physical therapy.
Broken Bones and Fractures
Broken bones are a common outcome of car accidents, slip and falls (per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)), and other injury accidents. While some may view broken bones as moderate injuries, some forms of breaks and fractures can leave you out of work for an extended period of time and require advanced medical care.
Burns and Disfiguring Injuries
Those with serious burns not only face intense pain and life-threatening health complications, but they may also live with the physical and emotional consequences of scarring.
Neck and Back Injuries
Car accidents and other accidents can lead to a range of neck and back injuries. Even whiplash, which may be viewed as mild, can leave victims with ongoing pain and headaches long after the accident (per Healthline).
Our team understands that many injuries can cause serious hardships for victims. However, you could face challenges from an insurance company when you seek compensation for your medical costs. Our attorneys know how to build a case that demonstrates the full impact your injury has had on your life.
Frequently Asked Questions in Georgia Personal Injury Cases
We know that you may have many questions when you’re filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. An attorney at our firm will offer you guidance on your questions throughout your case.
Our team can answer:
How Much Is My Case Worth?
There is no predetermined value for a personal injury case. However, your ultimate settlement or award could be influenced by the following factors:
- How serious your injuries are
- How much your injuries will cost to treat
- How much the accident affected your ability to work or pursue normal activities
- Who is liable for the accident and injury
For instance, a traumatic brain injury may require years of therapy. With a TBI, you may also need to take a different job if you face reduced cognitive or physical capacity. Everything about your life could be changed after the injury—and you may be able to seek a higher settlement as a result.
On the other hand, it is important to seek out a case review if you’re unsure about your case’s worth. You could be surprised by how much compensation you’re eligible to seek.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer?
Many people hold back from seeking legal help out of concerns about the cost of hiring a lawyer. You should know that you don’t have to pay out of your savings to hire our team.
At Kaine Law, we take cases based on contingency fees. This means that we require no hourly rates, retainers, or other out-of-pocket costs in order to get started. We only receive payment for our services at the conclusion of your case – if we win results for you.
With this fee structure, the financial risks of hiring a lawyer are significantly reduced.
What Can I Do to Prepare for My Injury Case?
Some of the most important steps to take to protect your right to compensation include:
- Getting all the medical care you need
- Watching out for low settlement offers
- Limiting the statements you make about the case
- Getting a free case review from our team
First and foremost, get medical attention for your injuries promptly after an accident if you haven’t yet done so. Then, be sure to follow your doctors’ orders. When you go to your follow-up appointments, physical therapy, and take medications, it creates a record that proves you were injured. This makes it harder for an insurer to deny your case.
Also, if an insurance company contacts you, keep your conversations to a minimum. If you make a recorded statement about your accident, this could ultimately hurt your case value. Similarly, if you receive an early settlement offer, consider a free case review from our team in order to determine if you’re getting a fair offer. You don’t have to leave money on the table or determine your case’s potential value on your own.
