How to Handle an Injury in Kennesaw

You have a few priorities after a serious injury. You need prompt medical treatment and to protect your right to compensation. Following these steps can help with both:

  • Seek medical attention. Many injuries require quick treatment, and delaying could leave you permanently injured. Look into local facilities like Wellstar Urgent Care and Wellstar Kennestone Hospital’s Emergency Department.
  • Report the accident. The appropriate authority depends on the type of accident. You’ll want to call the Kennesaw Police Department for a car accident. They’re also a good place to start if a dog bites you, but you should also call Cobb County Animal Services. If you have a premises liability claim, your fall will need to be reported to the property owner.
  • Keep Your Documents. Police reports, medical reports, and injury reports will all be great tools for your attorney. Keep scanned or digital copies and physical copies.
  • Take pictures. Any physical evidence you have may be useful in your injury claim. Consider taking pictures of where you got hurt, your injuries, and any nearby distractions or obstacles that may have contributed to your injuries.
  • Reach out to a Kennesaw attorney. Once the liable party’s insurance company finds out that you have been injured, they’ll work to prevent you from seeking fair compensation. Our firm works to ensure that you aren’t taken advantage of.

How Were You Injured?

Over the years, our Kennesaw injury lawyers have won over $90 million for our clients. As a result, we have experience in various personal injury claims. Some of the cases we handle include:

  • Animal bites. Pet owners are expected to keep their pets leashed and under control. If a dog gets away from its owner and bites you, you may be able to seek compensation.
  • Car and truck collisions. Whether you’ve been rear-ended, sideswiped, or hit head-on, we can fight the insurance company for the money you are owed. We can also represent you in truck accident cases involving commercial vehicles—these collisions often cause catastrophic damage.
  • Medical malpractice. When a medical care provider violates your trust and provides substandard care, you may be left with an incorrect diagnosis, permanent injuries, or surgical complications. Let us help hold them accountable.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Thousands of motorcyclists are involved in crashes every single year. Our team understands the difficulties bikers face when filing a claim, and we’re here to help.
  • Pedestrian and bike collisions. Careless drivers can cause serious injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists. Our goal is to help victims get the compensation they’re owed.
  • Rideshare accidents. Lyft, Uber, and other rideshare services have served Kennesaw, GA, for years. If you get hurt in a crash, it’s difficult to know how to pursue compensation. Choose us to represent you.
  • Slip and fall injuries. Careless homeowners and business owners can cause injuries when they fail to keep their property safe. Find out how we can help you pursue compensation after a slip and fall.
  • Wrongful death. Wrongful death claims are one way for surviving family members to seek compensation after a loved one’s death.

Kennesaw Personal Injury Laws That May Apply

  • Liability. You’ll need to prove that someone else was liable for your injuries to receive compensation. This involves showing that the person had a duty of care to you, that they violated that duty, that the violation led to your injuries, and that you have measurable damages.
  • One bite rule for dog bites. The “one bite” rule is widely misunderstood. Under Georgia law, a pet owner can be held liable for their animal’s attacks if they know the dog is aggressive. After the dog is known to be aggressive, they must pay compensation for subsequent attacks. However, they are also liable if the dog is unleashed in violation of leash laws.
  • Statute of limitations. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. There are exceptions, so it’s important to discuss your claim with a Kennesaw personal injury attorney.
  • Comparative negligence. Even if you are partially responsible for an accident, you may still be able to recover compensation if you are less than 50% responsible. Up to that point, your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your share of liability.

Why Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer

Instead, hire a Kennesaw personal injury lawyer to fight for you. The benefits of retaining legal representation include:

  • A thorough investigation of your accident, what caused it, and who is liable for your injuries
  • Using a wide range of evidence to build a case proving the other party’s liability
  • Aggressive representation during negotiations with the insurance company, ensuring that you do not have to have direct contact with them
  • Competent, focused, and client-centered representation in court if your case does not settle
  • Clear, prompt communication and responses to messages to keep you informed and involved.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

As an accident victim, you could be entitled to several types of compensation. While a lot depends on the details of your accident, fair settlements often include compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earning opportunities
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses (wrongful death claims)

Sample Case Results

Lawsuits vs. Settlements

In many cases, the first step is filing a lawsuit. This is often necessary to get the insurance company to take your insurance claim seriously. From there, negotiations start.

Many personal injury claims end with the successful negotiation of a settlement. If not, our team proceeds with a lawsuit and plans to hold the liable party accountable in the courtroom. Settling a claim is generally much faster than going to court, but preparing for trial strengthens your position.

Proving Negligence

There are several elements involved in proving negligence under current personal injury laws, outlined below:

  • The other party had a duty of care to you. For example, drivers on the road have a duty of care to others on the road—they are expected to take reasonable steps to avoid accidents.
  • The other party breached that duty of care. Georgia considers whether or not someone acted as a “reasonably prudent person” would in a similar situation.
  • The breach of duty led to your injuries.
  • You have measurable damages for your injuries.

Kennesaw Injury FAQs

How Long Do I Have to File My Lawsuit?

You typically have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. However, this process can take a long time, so it’s recommended that you start as soon as possible after an accident.

Can I Get Compensation if I am Liable Too?

If you are partially responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you may still be able to get compensated. However, if you are 50% or more at fault, you cannot receive compensation.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

It depends on the circumstances. Many claims are resolved through insurance settlements. However, that doesn’t mean you should avoid filing a lawsuit. Even if you file and go to court, you might still settle your before trial.
