How to Handle a Serious Injury
Even though you may be in shock, what you do right after an injury matters—a lot. The decisions you make could affect your personal injury case and whether your claim is successful. These are your next steps after an injury:
Report the Accident
This depends on how and where you are injured. If you had a slip and fall injury, report it to the property owner. If you had a motor vehicle accident, report it to the Acworth Police Department. Those affected by dog bites should contact Animal Services of Cobb County. This provides documentation of your accident.
Seek Medical Attention
Whether it’s making an appointment with your family doctor, going to urgent care, or heading to the emergency room, getting checked over for accident-related injuries is important. Acworth is home to facilities like Wellstar Urgent Care, Wellstar Acworth Health Park, and Peachtree Immediate Care.
Talk to Your Insurance Provider
If you were involved in a car accident, you would need to notify your insurance company. This step does not generally apply if you were in another type of accident.
Reach Out to The Champion Firm
We can sit down with you and talk to you about your options. Our team will look over information regarding your accident and injuries and give you our professional recommendation. We’re ready to file on your behalf and push the insurance company to provide full and fair compensation.
How Were You Injured?
The Champion Firm has experience with a wide range of personal injury claim types. Some of the cases in Acworth we handle include:
- Bicycle & pedestrian accidents. When riding a bike or walking, you are much more vulnerable than drivers. We’re ready to hold negligent drivers accountable.
- Car accidents. Car accidents are prevalent in and around Acworth, and we’re here to figure out what happened and help you pursue the compensation you are owed.
- Bus and train collisions. Bus and train crashes are complicated since many parties may be liable. Our team will figure out the details and get to work.
- Motorcycle crashes. While drivers are supposed to be thoughtful of motorcyclists, many drive recklessly around bikers. If you’ve been injured, we can help.
- Dog bites. A dog bite puts you at risk of disease, nerve damage, and emotional trauma. Turn to us if a dog has attacked you.
- Slip and fall accidents. It’s up to property owners to keep their land safe. Let’s talk if you’ve been injured on a defective stairwell, poorly maintained walkway, or another obstacle.
- Defective products. Products that are poorly designed, manufactured, or marketed can put consumers at risk. We’ll determine where the breakdown started.
- Wrongful death. If a loved one dies because of someone else’s negligence, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for their tragic loss.
Personal Injury Laws That May Apply
- Statute of limitations. In most cases, personal injury victims have two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury case against the negligent party.
- Comparative fault. The other party may claim that you caused the accident and that your damage should be reduced. Under Georgia law, your payment will be decreased proportionately based on how much fault you have. For example, if your damages are $100,000 and you are 15% responsible, you will receive $85,000. You cannot receive compensation if you are 50% or more at fault.
- Damage caps. Unlike several other states, Georgia does not have caps on the compensation you can receive for economic and non-economic damages, though there are caps that apply to punitive damages.
- Liability. Liability is a legal term that clarifies who owes another party money due to their action or inaction.
Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side
Why not just wait for the insurance party to offer you a fair settlement? After all, they want to avoid a lawsuit—right?
Yes, they do. But they know that if you do not have an attorney, you probably don’t know how much your claim is worth.
They might look for details in your story that they can exploit, then claim that you caused the accident. They could accuse you of falsifying or playing up your injuries. Once they’ve finished insulting you, they’ll somehow make you feel grateful to get any offer. Skip these games entirely with the help of an Acworth personal injury attorney.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Personal Injury Damages & Compensation
The compensation you receive depends on several factors, including the strength of your evidence, the severity of your injuries, and your attorney. Without consulting an Acworth personal injury lawyer, there’s no real way to know how much your case is worth.
A full and fair settlement includes compensation for several types of damages, including:
- Current medical bills
- Future medical expenses if your injuries will require future care
- Lost wages
- Lost future income if your injuries will permanently prevent you from working
- Pain and suffering for both your physical and mental trauma
- Funeral expenses in wrongful death cases
Sample Case Results
- $17 million for our client whose husband was killed in an accident at MARTA.
- $1.375 million when our client suffered a spinal injury in a truck accident.
- More than $10 million for a seriously injured DUI accident victim.
- Over $2 million after a Fatal Rideshare Accident.
Lawsuits vs. Settlements
Most personal injury cases end in a settlement. During negotiations, your Acworth attorney will communicate with the other side’s insurance company and attorneys, where both sides will make their case. The work we do to prepare for negotiations is also the first step in preparing for court. If negotiations are unsuccessful, we will file a lawsuit.
To prove negligence, you must show that:
- The other party had a duty of care. For example, a store must keep its premises safe for visitors.
- They breached that duty. Imagine that the store failed to inspect its floor, and as a result, a spill remained in an aisle for hours without being cleaned up.
- That breach of duty caused an accident. A customer walking in the store fell on the liquid.
- There are measurable damages. The customer had to go to the hospital and get follow-up medical treatment and also missed time from work.

Acworth Personal Injury FAQs
Where do I file a lawsuit in Acworth?
The venue for a lawsuit depends on a variety of facts. In Georgia, the location of the accident generally does not control where the lawsuit must be filed. A lawsuit normally must be filed where the defendant resides. If the defendant is a person, this is easy: it is where they live. If the defendant is an entity, like a corporation, there may be several venue options, including where the entity has its registered agent, or where the accident occurred. Additional rules apply in other situations, like those involving out-of-state defendants.
What is my case worth?
You can only get a true answer to this question by talking to an Acworth personal injury lawyer. It depends on the medical expenses you’ve accrued, the time you’ve spent away from work, property damage, the severity of your injuries, and more.
How long do I have to file a case?
In Georgia, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. This sounds like a lot of time, but evidence can disappear fast, and memories fade. It’s best to get started by speaking to a lawyer as soon as possible.
