An Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorney Committed to Children
Unfortunately, some accidents involve injuries to children. These cases require special consideration and attention because your child’s future is at stake. Alpharetta child injury lawyer Amber Gilormo understands what you need to make sure they get the help they need and fair compensation for their injuries.
We know how difficult it can be if your child has been injured. We have experience working with families to help their child make a full recovery in the following types of cases:
- Injuries suffered at daycare facilities schools
- Sports injuries
- Children injured by motor vehicles while walking or biking
- Children injured in car accidents
When a child suffers an injury, there are special factors that need to be considered. They may require unique treatments to prevent life-long injuries. In severe cases, they may suffer a disability that will limit their ability to work and enjoy a normal life. In addition, you may need to take time off from work or leave your career in order to provide the care you need. An experienced Alpharetta child injury attorney can help you get the compensation you need to provide the future they deserve.
What to Expect When You Meet with an Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorney
No matter the specific type of claim, many people are hesitant to meet with an attorney about their case for a variety of reasons. They’re worried about what it might cost or whether they will say the right things. However, the first meeting is an important step in deciding whether you should pursue a claim. It is your opportunity to determine whether the attorney is a good fit for you and to learn what the next steps may be. When you first meet with an Alpharetta personal injury attorney, you should expect the following:
- The attorney should listen carefully to your account of what happened.
- The attorney should identify any potential factual or legal issues in your case.
- The attorney should provide a general strategy of how they would handle your claim and what they think the expected outcome will be.
- The attorney should provide you with an estimate of what your personal injury claim may be worth.
At Gilormo Injury Law, the first consultation is always free. We will provide you a candid and honest assessment of your case, explain how we would handle your claim, what the challenges may be, and provide an estimate of what your case is worth. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision about how to proceed.
How an Alpharetta Injury Attorney Can Help You Build Your Case
Your first concern is making a full recovery when you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury. As a result, it can be overwhelming to deal with insurance companies and document your claim. Unfortunately, the days and weeks following your accident are critical if you need to pursue compensation. Here are some of the ways that an Alpharetta personal injury attorney can help:
- Your lawyer can compile all of the documentation you will need: medical bills and records, accident reports, and witness statements.
- Your lawyer can help you calculate your lost income as a result of the accident, which can often include amounts in addition to your lost wages.
- Your lawyer can speak to the opposing party and insurance company representatives on your behalf, as well as any other parties related to your accident.
No matter how obvious it may be that the other party is responsible for your accident, you still have to prove your case. Your lawyer can focus on collecting the evidence critical to your claim so that you can focus on getting better.
Damages Your Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorney May Pursue
If you’ve suffered a serious injury, your losses could extend far beyond the medical bills you’ve accumulated to date. Unfortunately, many non-lawyers underestimate what their injuries will cost. Under the law, you are entitled to be made whole, which means you are entitled to compensation for all of your losses. The total value of your claim will include the following components:
- Your medical expenses, especially any uncovered expenses such as deductibles and copays.
- Any and all lost income, such as lost wages, because you were unable to work due to your injury or had to take time off to receive medical treatment.
- Any other expenses caused by the accident such as accommodations to your home or increased transportation costs because you cannot drive.
- Pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injuries.
Pain and suffering is the most difficult of these components for non-lawyers to calculate because there are no bills that you can refer to. Instead, damages awarded for pain and suffering attempt to compensate you for the physical pain and mental anguish caused by your accident. Georgia does not limit the amount you can seek for pain and suffering and does not mandate you use a specific formula. However, we recommend that you consult with an experienced Alpharetta personal injury lawyer to formulate your claim to ensure the best possible recovery.
Settling Your Claim with a Personal Injury Law Firm
Understandably, many accident victims do not want to go to court. The idea of suing someone or having to testify in court can be intimidating for most non-lawyers. Fortunately, most personal injury claims are settled before they go to trial, and many are settled even before a lawsuit is filed. Settlement is an attractive option for many people because it means your claim will be resolved sooner rather than later.
Insurance companies will demand that you prove your claim before they pay your claim, which means you will have to carefully document your claim and submit the proper evidence. In addition, insurance companies routinely make lowball settlement offers based on spurious reasons why you shouldn’t receive full value for your claim. A knowledgeable Alpharetta personal injury lawyer can hold the insurance company responsible and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
