Speak With A Lawyer First If You Suspect Negligence
We can advise you on the proper next steps to take without compromising the feasibility of your injury claim. You should speak with the medical provider before filing a medical malpractice claim, and you should speak with the insurance company before filing a claim for compensation beyond what it is ready to provide, but you should not do so before speaking with an experienced lawyer.
In some cases, matters can be resolved favorably without the need to take legal action. In others, our representation is invaluable in securing the maximum compensation to help you live out your life with minimal hardships.
Know The Statute Of Limitations In Georgia
Personal injury claims must be brought within two years of the day your injury was suffered, but exceptions exist for:
- Specific types of medical malpractice cases
- Certain wrongful death claims
Every case is different. The statute of limitations in your case must be interpreted by an experienced attorney.
Investigation Of Your Claim
Our firm has substantial resources available to thoroughly investigate your injury claim. In some cases, we collaborate with experts to reconstruct accidents, examine defective products and determine conclusive negligence, but we are able to do this on our own in many cases where our clients take quick action to seek our legal help. Your full cooperation in this process is imperative.
The sooner you contact our firm, the more evidence can be preserved, the better witness testimony can be and the sooner we can get to work for you.
We will take the time to review our findings with you, help you understand why your case is viable or not, and walk you through your full legal options.
Does Your Case Have Merit?
In a medical malpractice claim, determining if your case has merit will require consultation with and review by a specialized medical expert who can conclude that your original medical provider may have departed from the established standard of care, resulting in your serious injury. Once we have received an affidavit or certificate of merit from a medical expert who is fit to testify in your case, we can proceed with your case.
In a personal injury claim, your case may or may not require review by a medical expert. In most cases, our attorneys can determine if your case has merit and is worth pursuing for compensation, but the testimony of expert witnesses from the medical field and other professions may still be valuable aspects of your case.
