I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period.

Unfortunately, some accidents can result in serious, life-changing injuries. If you’ve been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you could be facing significant medical bills and lost income, along with other issues that impact your professional and personal life. Your accident doesn’t have to jeopardize your future – you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced, knowledgeable Atlanta personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to put your life back together after a serious accident or injury.
Most personal injury cases are cases based on negligence. The injured party (the victim) claims that their injury was caused by the other party’s negligence. As a result, proving negligence is often the key element in a successful personal injury case.
Simply put, negligence is when someone fails to take reasonable care to prevent harm to another person. It is determined by considering what a reasonably prudent person would do under the same or similar circumstances. Negligence can take the form of acting in a careless way or failing to act.
Negligence can be a tricky concept – it can include affirmative actions (i.e. something on purpose_ as well as a failure to act. When another person is negligent, it generally means that they have failed to take reasonable care to prevent an accident.
The judge or jury will find negligence according to the standard of what someone of “ordinary prudence” would do or not do in the same or very similar circumstances. Obviously, words like “reasonable” and “ordinary prudence” suggest that there is no black-and-white rule that determines whether or not someone is negligent. Instead, the specific facts and circumstances of the case, coupled with legal precedent, determine whether or not someone’s negligence caused your accident. An Atlanta injury attorney at Gilormo Injury Law can review your case and determine whether you have a claim for negligence.
Negligence can occur in a wide range of cases. We’ve outlined some common examples that an Atlanta accident attorney can handle:
In any legal case, there are individual components, or elements, that you have to prove to prevail on your claim. The elements of a personal injury case are as follows:
While this sounds straightforward, proving each of these elements can be complicated. In addition, you risk your entire claim if you fail to prove any one of these elements, which is why we encourage you to speak with an Atlanta personal injury lawyer if you have been injured and are considering pursuing an injury claim.
It may help understand the nature of negligence when compared to intentional harms. For example, someone who commits assault and battery intended to hurt the other person. In a negligence case, however, there was no specific intent to harm anyone, let alone a specific person.
In order to prevail on your negligence claim, you will have to prove that the other party was negligent. There are some cases, however, where all you have to prove is that the other party caused your harm – you do not need to prove that they were negligent or intended to harm you. These cases are referred to as “strict liability” cases.
Strict liability applies in only two situations under Georgia law:
Of the two, product liability, such as defective design, cases are far more common. While you do not have to prove negligence in these situations, this does not mean that your case will be easier. We strongly recommend that you speak with an Atlanta injury attorney about your case before making any decisions.

From the very first consultation, we work with you every step of the way to make sure you understand your options and can make informed decisions about your claim.
