Gilormo Injury Law: Helping the Injured in Cumming

Accidents happen every day – many where people escape unharmed, but sometimes people are seriously injured. If you’ve been injured in an accident, you need to consider your future. How will you pay your medical bills? Will you be able to work? How will you take care of your family? An experienced Cumming personal injury lawyer at our firm can help you get the answers to these questions, and more importantly, get you the compensation you need to put your life back together. We assist with car accidents, child injuries, wrongful death claims and more. 

If You’ve Suffered Any of These Injuries from an Accident or Negligence, You Should Speak with a Cumming Injury Attorney

With years of experience, we’ve helped injured people get the compensation they need to make a full recovery. We’ve helped people who have suffered the following types of injuries as a result of almost any type of accident, including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and medical malpractice: 

  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Torn ligaments and tendons
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Deep lacerations
  • Eye injuries

A Cumming personal injury attorney can also help people who have experienced psychological and emotional trauma as a result of their injuries such as severe depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

What You Need to Know About Personal Injury Lawsuits

While most personal injury claims are settled out of court, sometimes you need to file a lawsuit and proceed to trial. Understandably, most non-lawyers are intimidated by the prospect of going to court. However, an experienced Cumming personal injury attorney can help you navigate the process so that you can get the compensation you deserve. 

The first step is to determine where you should file suit. While you can’t simply pick whichever courthouse you like best, there may be some flexibility in your case. Your attorney will take the following factors into consideration: 

  • Where the accident occurred
  • Where you live
  • Where the other parties live or do business
  • Where your case may be heard more quickly

The next phase of your lawsuit is what is referred to as the discovery phase. The discovery phase is critical to your case. Your attorney can use a variety of tools to gather evidence that is necessary to your case, which can include filing subpoenas for documents and requiring other parties to testify under oath in a deposition. The discovery phase is where your lawyer will not only compile the evidence that you need but also learn about what defenses the other side may raise so that you can be fully prepared. 

Once discovery has been completed, your case will then proceed to trial. During trial you will be required to testify in front of the jury and your attorney will submit evidence to prove your case. An experienced Cumming personal injury attorney will know how to make your case to the jury so that you can be awarded a judgment in your favor. 

When Should I Contact a Cumming Personal Injury Lawyer?

First, you should understand that Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims, which means you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of your accident or you will be barred from pursuing compensation. Two years may seem like a long time, but the longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to prove your case. You should contact a Cumming personal injury attorney as soon as possible in the following situations: 

  • You have been seriously injured in a major accident. Many people unfortunately settle their claims too soon and wind up with expenses and other losses that aren’t covered by their settlement. You may be facing losses that you haven’t anticipated.
  • Your injury will require extensive medical treatment. The more treatment you need, the more likely you will need legal representation. You are likely facing extensive medical bills and you may need to take an extended leave of absence from work. Furthermore, your injury will likely experience significant pain and suffering. 
  • You have experienced unexpected complications from your medical treatment. Medical malpractice occurs more often than you think. Doctors and hospitals are expected to provide treatment according to a specific standard of care. If you suspect that something has gone wrong, you should discuss your case with an experienced Cumming medical malpractice attorney. 
  • You have been injured on someone else’s property. Property owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their property is safe for guests and visitors. You may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured because a property owner negligently maintained their property or failed to warn you of specific hazards. 

A Cumming injury lawyer can handle your claim from start to finish so that you can focus on getting better. They can handle the communications with the insurance company and any other parties involved. They can collect the evidence you need to prove your claim such as your bills, medical reports, accident reports, and witness statements. Finally, they can provide you with critical advice concerning your legal rights and what your claim is worth. 

Our Cumming Personal Injury Lawyer Is Ready to Take Your Case To Court

Sometimes it is possible to resolve the issue of damages and compensation due to an accident or personal injury before a lawsuit needs to be filed. If a favorable resolution can be achieved for our client without having court hearings or a trial, that is great news for our client, and we are happy they receive the compensation they deserve without a lengthy court proceeding. 

However, rest assured that an Cumming personal injury lawyer at Gilormo Injury Law is ready and willing to take a case to court when necessary. The court process can be daunting for clients, so we strive to explain each step for their peace of mind. Though waiting on the court can be frustrating, We will be there to guide you through the court proceedings with care and understanding.

What Are Your Damages?

“Damages” is the legal term for the losses you have suffered as a result of your accident. Generally speaking, you may be entitled to compensation for three types of damages: 

  1. Compensatory damages: these are your economic damages and include things such as your medical bills, your lost wages, and any other expenses incurred as a result of your accident.
  2. Non-economic damages: this includes your pain and suffering. Under the law, you are entitled to be made whole. As a result, you may be entitled to compensation for mental and physical anguish that you have experienced, as you are unable to enjoy life as you did before your accident.
  3. Punitive damages: these are damages awarded by the court in order to punish the at-fault party. Their purpose is to dissuade other people from engaging in the same behavior. However, punitive damages are rarely awarded except in truly egregious cases and must meet a higher evidentiary standard.

An experienced Cumming personal injury lawyer can provide a firm estimate of what your case may be worth. If the insurance company has already offered to settle your claim, you should speak with an attorney before accepting the offer to make sure you are being fairly compensated. 

Our Cumming Injury Lawyer Works With Insurance Companies So You Don’t Have To

Often in a personal injury matter, there will be multiple parties involved, including insurance companies. Each insurance company and policy has different requirements and definitions to determine what is covered and what costs can be denied. Also, there are policy limits that put a cap on how much money the insurance company would have to pay for an incident. Our team comes with a wealth of experience negotiating settlements with insurance companies for our clients and we rigorously represent clients at trial. Gilormo Injury Law has a reputation for caring for clients compassionately while achieving favorable results for them.
