Personal Injury Lawyer in Georgia

A personal injury is an injury caused by a person other than you. These injuries may occur at a place of work, on the road or any location irrespective of whether you frequent the place on a frequent basis or not. Accidents also fall under personal injuries provided they have been caused by a party other than you. According to the law, a personal injury is harm that is inflicted on the victim’s body, emotions and emotions. This applies to any personal injury law within the US irrespective of the state. In the US, all cases to do with personal or accident injury fall under the category of law referred to as tort law.
Common features of personal injury law in the US
Although the concrete details that are featured by laws on Personal Injury/Car Accidents in the US vary from state to state, common elements between them actually exist. Some of the most notable common features of each of the personal or accident injury laws within the US are indicated in the passage.

Damages
Damages are payments made by the individual who had been responsible for causing the Personal Injury/Car Accidents These can be general or not depending on whether they are measurable costs or not. For example, all damages such as medical bills and lost income that can easily be assigned a value are referred to as special damages because they are associated with measurable costs. Irrespective of the state involved, this applies. On the other hand, all damages such as emotional torture, defamation of character and pain which cannot easily be assigned a value are said to be general damage. This is often the case irrespective of the US state involved, although a few variations may be noticed.

Paying for damages
Damages have to be paid for once the individual who is a victim of the personal injury or accident files a claim in the courts of law. Once the courts have approved the claim for compensation, the individual responsible for causing the accident or personal injury will be required to pay for the damages. This is referred to as compensation. In most cases, there are certain things that must be proven before a claim for compensation can be approved by the courts of law. Although there many be variations among the personal injury or accident laws that are featured by different states within the US, most of them feature all or most of the following. The party will be held liable for the settlement of damage costs if and only if;
• One had a duty to act in a reasonable manner based on circumstances at hand
• One had breached the duty
• One had breached the duty rendering you harmed in the process
• One caused you to suffer monetary damages following the breach of duty

How much of compensation can be made?
How much of compensation can be made depends on a number of factors. However, the courts of law are primarily responsible for making an evaluation of the damage caused. They may use third parties to come up with the cost of the damages that have to be paid. In general, the severity of the personal injury or accident injury determines the costs that will be associated with settling the damage. Severe injuries such as brain injuries, broken ribs and fractured spine often attract a very huge amount of compensation. The converse is true when it comes to trivial injuries such as bruises and bleeding noses. Other damages that may attract a huge amount of compensation include defamation of character and the loss of a life resulting in grief and emotional stress.

Time limits
In most tort laws across the world, there is a specific time limit that has been set by the courts of law that the victim of the injury must adhere to if one’s claim is to be successful. If you file a claim for compensation once this time frame has elapsed, you cannot expect to have your damages paid for. In the US, this time frame varies from one state to another depending on the statutory limitations set by the court in each state. The statutory limitations also vary based on the severity of the injuries or accidents.
