Been in an accident? Call Spillers Law Firm today (678) 208-0800

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 located in Cumming, Georgia today for more information and to speak with our experienced personal injury attorneys. We are eager to assist you throughout each step of the process.

Causes of Personal Injury Cases in Cumming Georgia

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.

Traffic Collisions in Georgia

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.

  • Drunk Driving: 87 more Georgians were killed due to drunk driving in 2015 than in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In 2015, Georgia had the second highest increase in alcohol-impaired driving deaths, behind only Florida.
  • Distracted Driving: Cell phones are the number one cause of distracted driving. Whether a driver talks with or without a hands-free device, texts, takes pictures, checks the internet, or even reaches for their phone, they greatly increase the chance of causing a crash. Distracted driving also takes the form of eating, drinking, changing the radio station or music on a device, looking out the window, daydreaming, talking to passengers, looking in the backseat for objects, driving with children in the car, and anything else that takes the driver’s attention off the road ahead.
  • Aggressive Driving: Aggressive driving is driving in a manner that intentionally puts others at risk due to the driver’s anger or impatience. This includes speeding, weaving in and out of lanes to pass slower moving (and law-abiding) vehicles, slamming on the brakes to scare other drivers, tailgating, excessive honking or flashing the brights, pulling out in front of traffic without having enough time to safely do so, going through stop signs and red lights, and other overtly dangerous behaviors. Aggressive driving plays a part in 56 percent of fatal crashes, according to the Insurance Information Institute.

​Who Was at Fault?

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 Cumming attorney can help you answer these questions and build evidence to support your claim in court.

What Compensation Can I Expect to Receive For My Injuries

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.
