Case Evaluation Following an accident or injury in Atlanta, it is important to speak with an experienced injury attorney about the specific circumstances of your case, including: whether your injury is a result of someone else’s negligence, the extent and severity of your injuries, your medical costs, and your legal options. Our personal injury lawyers provide free consultations and case evaluations by phone, video call or in-person. You don’t owe us anything unless we win your case, so there is no obligation.

Strategy Every Atlanta personal injury case is unique which means each strategy is also unique and highly customized. Sometimes we may file a lawsuit right away, other times we may wait until medical treatment concludes. In each situation, The Champion Firm team uses our cutting-edge technology, advanced resources, and extensive experience to plan each and every step of a client’s case strategy.

Demand Letter A settlement demand letter is a letter that outlines your case, including liability and damages (injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering). The letter is typically sent to the insurance company, or the at-fault party - or both. They will either reject the demand, make a counteroffer or accept it. Putting together a strong, persuasive demand package is critical to a successful, timely result.

Case Settles or Lawsuit is Filed Most of the time, personal injury cases settle during the demand negotiation process. However, because we’re dedicated to getting our clients the best possible result, we will take their case to the next step if need be. It is important to work with an Atlanta injury attorney experienced in the lawsuit process and fighting for their client no matter what it takes.

Fact Finding & Discovery Once a lawsuit is filed, the case goes into a discovery period. Discovery means that we get to find out information about the defense and evidence we can use to support your claim and the defense gets to find out about your claim. This process includes interrogatories, requests for documents, and depositions. After the exchange of information is complete, the court usually orders mediation prior to the start of a trial.

Mediation Mediation is a dispute resolution process where a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates a discussion between the parties to a lawsuit in order to promote the voluntary settlement of the case. At most personal injury mediations, you will be in a room with us and the attorney for the defendant will be in a separate room. The mediator will move between the two rooms to try to get both sides to agree on a number for settlement. Many personal injury lawsuits resolve at mediation.

Case Settles or Goes to Trial If the case does not resolve during the mediation process, we are headed to trial. Trials start with an opening statement. Then, each party presents evidence and gets a closing argument. After that, the jury makes the decision on whether plaintiff or defendant wins, and if they find for the plaintiff they determine how much to award for damages.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

What’s Your Personal Injury Case Worth?

Every personal injury case we handle is unique. While the value depends on the facts, you may be entitled to your: Medical expenses (bills now and down the line), Lost income (The wages you missed and will in the future), Property damage (To your vehicle or items you lost), your Pain and Suffering (The physical and emotional stress you endured), and loss of companionship if a loved one died. In addition to economic and non-economic damages, you could be entitled to punitive damages—money awarded to you with the intention of punishing the other party.

Should You Accept a Settlement Offer or go to Trial?

Most personal injury claims in Atlanta end with a settlement, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare for trial. You should choose an Atlanta injury lawyer with serious experience in Georgia courts, and who is unafraid of going to trial if that is what your case requires. If an insurance company approaches you with an offer, do not sign anything or accept without having it reviewed. We will assess their offer at no charge and discuss your options.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Georgia?

The statute of limitations in Georgia personal injury cases is normally two years. The sooner you file, the better because you may lose any right to compensation after time expires. If you have questions about this, it’s best to consult an injury attorney.

Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

There's no short list of reasons why you should hire a personal injury lawyer. First, negotiating a settlement on your own leaves you vulnerable to being taken advantage of by the at-fault party's insurer. Second, injury lawyers have access to resources like expert witnesses that investigate your case and determine the exact cause of the accident. Finally, you won't be charged a dime unless your attorney wins your case—meaning you really have nothing to lose and your attorney has a better chance of recovering a greater settlement than you handling your case alone.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

Negligence is the basis for all injury claims. You might have a claim if the at-fault party owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, this breach caused your injuries, and your injuries led to monetary and non-monetary damages.

How Do You Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?

Knowing you have a claim is one thing, proving negligence is the real challenge. An attorney does this by thoroughly investigating the details of your case to look for signs of negligence. This could be a driver's BAC levels, inadequate signage indicating a wet floor, a trucking log that shows a driver was on the road longer than they should be. Highlighting the action that breached the duty of care is key to proving negligence.

Who is Liable for Your Injuries?

There could be multiple parties liable for your injuries. For example, the driver that hit you, the auto manufacturer, or another driver on the road could be responsible for a vehicle accident. In truck accident or premises liability cases, the employer could be responsible for your injuries. It all depends on the accident you were involved in.
