Business organizations, employers, product manufacturers, and motorists owe a reasonable duty of care to prevent harm to others. When standards fall and action (or lack of action) results in someone being hurt, the injured person can claim compensation.
If you or a loved one was hurt in an accident caused by another person or organization’s negligence, you could qualify for damages. These could cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Discuss your claim in a free, initial consultation and learn how a Valdosta personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you.
What to Do If You Were Injured in an Accident
Being unable to work while you recover from a painful injury can add financial pressure to an already challenging situation. Many people seek legal advice to remove the burden and stress of dealing with a claim or lawsuit, so they can fully focus on their recovery.
Further, being injured does not automatically make you eligible for compensation. Litigation can be complex and lengthy because you will need to prove negligence caused your injuries.
In light of this, you should seek medical assistance following an accident. Your health is a top priority here, and having your injuries diagnosed, treated, and documented can be used as evidence in your case at a later date.

Determining the Financial Impact of Your Injuries
When it comes to estimating a claim’s value, there is no ‘one size fits all.’ We see every client as unique; a similar injury can affect two people in different ways. By taking a personal approach, we are able to understand the particular challenges you are facing at this difficult time.
When we work with you, we carefully examine your case’s details to evaluate the full financial impact of your current and future care requirements. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the nature of your injuries, we can then help you recover the appropriate type of compensation suited to your needs.
These can include:
Economic damages include compensation for quantifiable expenses such as current and ongoing medical costs, rehabilitation costs, and lost property. It is also available in lieu of lost wages and any future impact on earnings and benefits.
Non-economic damages are a little more challenging to define, as they are the intangible and subjective impact of an accident. This can include pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
After an accident, you likely have questions about proceeding with a claim and the legal options available to you. We can help.
