Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal Injuries
Unfortunately, accidents can cause life changing, and life ending, injuries in an instant. If you were recently involved in an accident that left you with painful injuries, contact a personal injury lawyer to see if you may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit. The legal process is extremely difficult to manage on your own, and that is why you should give serious thought to hiring an experienced Savannah personal injury lawyer. Victims who win or settle their personal injury claims often recover compensation for the medical treatment, rehabilitative care, lost wages, and pain and suffering experienced as a result of the accident.

How Can a personal injury lawyer Help Me?

Most personal injury victims do not know the many advantages of working with a trusted attorney on their claim. One of the first steps in building your case is investigating the situation where your injury occurred. This allows us to gather evidence needed to prove that someone else is at-fault for your injuries. Many personal injury victims are unaware that a lot of personal injury cases are resolved outside of the courtroom, through an insurance settlement or an out-of-court settlement between both parties. You should always contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury. The faster you contact us, the faster we can go to work pursuing the compensation you deserve.

How Long Do I Have to Contact a Lawyer?

Georgia’s statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. This applies to many types of cases, including those involving car accidents, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, and truck accidents. There is also a two-year statute of limitations for cases involving product liability. However, these cases are also governed by a 10-year statute of repose. This statute governs situations where you did not know you had grounds for a lawsuit immediately after you suffered an injury. This statute says that you cannot file a lawsuit more than 10 years after you bought the product that caused your injury, no matter when you figured out you could pursue a case.
