This question is hard to answer because there are so many variables. A case’s worth is based on the extent of your injuries, amount of your medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and pain and suffering. Your injuries could leave you permanently disabled even after your treatment is completed. Therefore, the true value of your claim can only be evaluated after a definitive diagnosis and prognosis have been established by your physician.
We handle our cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay an attorney’s fee or case expenses us unless we win. There is no cost until we succeed. If we do not recover anything for you then we will absorb the costs of the expenses in your case to that point.
Again, this question is common, but hard to answer. Each case is very unique so there’s no right answer. One case may settle in a few months without a trial, while others can take a year or more to complete. The time it takes to settle a case also depends on several other factors, the extent of your injuries and how long it takes you to recover from your injuries. We want to ensure that you get all the treatment that you need and that the people that injured you or your loved one and their insurance companies are held fully accountable for their negligence.
Yes! We have been helping injured people just like you for over 25 years. We can recommend the best physician in your area who is qualified to treat you based on the injuries you have sustained. If you do not have health insurance we can suggest a physician who may be willing to treat you on a lien, so that you can get the treatment you need without having to pay anything out of pocket.
No, the insurance will often offer you a quick settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries or what treatment you will need to get well. The State of Georgia provides in most, but not all cases, a two-year period in which to file a lawsuit on a personal injury or premises liability claim. Accordingly, there is no need to rush to a settlement with an insurance company.
We recommend that you don’t discuss your injury, how it happened, or sign any papers agreeing to anything until you have spoken with a personal injury attorney. Never give a recorded statement to any representative from the insurance company.
We prepare and handle every case as if it may go to trial. It is always our goal to settle cases out of court whenever it is possible. However, if an insurance company refuses to offer a settlement reflecting the true value of your case, we are more than ready to file a law suit and go through to trial to get you the settlement you deserve.
Typically, the funds are received within one to two weeks after the release is signed. If the case involved a larger settlement, the State, private individuals, and/or an out of area insurance company, it can take much longer. Sometimes, the Court must approve a settlement before it can be finalized and money can be disbursed.
