No one likes thinking about it, but a life-altering accident may be just around the corner. Our everyday lives seem so safe, and for the most part they are. However, millions of people end up in emergency rooms across the U.S. each year. When you suffer an injury that was caused by another party, you have the right to seek financial compensation, and while no amount of money can take back the trauma that you were put through, it can, at least, help create a more solid financial future for you and your family, and ensure that you are not stuck with thousands or hundreds of thousands in medical bills and other costs associated with the incident.
It is in your best interest to act swiftly after being in the accident in order to ensure that your legal team has enough time to put together the strongest case possible. Additionally, in Georgia the statute of limitations for filing a civil personal injury tort is two years for both unintentionally caused injuries as well as violent crimes. This means that you only have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. Contact Spillers Law Firm today for more information and to speak with our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys. We are eager to assist you throughout each step of the process.

A personal injury lawsuit or settlement can help pay for the following:
The two most common types of accidents that result in serious injury or death are slip and falls and traffic collisions. Combined, the two account for the majority of injuries that are the fault of a negligent party. There are over 3.8 million emergency room (ER) visits in Georgia on an annual basis, according to the Department of Public Health. The majority of these visits are not the fault of anyone, but are merely health complications or an accident caused by the injured person themselves, such as cutting a finger while preparing dinner or tripping on a kid’s toy at home. But when these injuries are the result of another’s negligence or intentional actions, legal action should be taken. Slip and fall accidents at unsafe premises not only cause serious injuries, but kill thousands of people each year, especially senior citizens, who are more likely to die from a complication, such as pneumonia, after falling and being hospitalized. All premises, such as stores, restaurants, and other businesses, must maintain a reasonably safe walkway for all of their invitees, keeping stairways, floors, entrance ways, and sidewalks free of ice, water, leaves, debris, dirt, oil, spilled merchandise, extension cords, and other tripping hazards.
Well over 100,000 people seek medical treatment in Georgia ERs every year as the result of traffic collisions, while more than 1,400 people died in traffic collisions in 2015. As more people drive distracted, aggressively, and while intoxicated, those numbers will continue to rise, and are expected to do so in the years to come.
When filing a personal injury lawsuit or seeking an out-of-court settlement, the first step is determining who was at fault. Were their multiple parties involved in the car wreck? Should the designer or the manufacturer of the unsafe product be held liable? An experienced Georgia personal injury attorney can help you answer these questions and build evidence to support your claim in court.
There is no set amount you should expect for a specific injury. While the type of injury does play a large role in determining the quantity of compensation you may receive, there are too many other factors at play to estimate what you will end up with. For example, the negotiating and legal prowess of your attorney plays a large role. Even more so, the insurance policy, or in some cases the assets, of the negligent party determines what you have to work with. However, the more serious the injury, the larger the financial compensation you can expect.
