Why You Need a Macon Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, beware that insurance companies may offer a quick settlement. As tempting as an immediate payout might seem, these offers typically undervalue the full extent of damages. Accepting such an offer can prevent you from seeking further compensation. With so much stress and confusion during this trying time, having the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer is crucial. Trust Gautreaux Law to use their knowledge and experience to take the burden off of you and obtain full and fair compensation based on your unique situation.

Many personal injury claims result in settlements without heading to court. However, we will take your case to trial if the other side refuses to negotiate fairly. Rest assured, we will guide you through the process and get you the justice and compensation you deserve.

How Georgia's Personal Injury Laws Impact You

At the heart of Georgia’s personal injury laws is the legal principle of “negligence.” Negligence is basically equivalent to carelessness. To succeed in a personal injury claim, we must prove that the defendant’s negligence led to your injury. Your injury includes things such as medical bills, lost wages and your pain and suffering resulting from the injury. Punitive damages may be available – if the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious.

Our work for you is focused on proving both the negligence and the extent of your injuries, and a legal concept called “causation” which is linking your injuries to the other party’s negligence. These are required to win your case so that’s what we will prove in order to obtain maximum compensation for you, whether in a settlement or at trial.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the time limit for filing a personal injury claim in Georgia?

Georgia typically allows two years to file a lawsuit from the date of the injury in many personal injury cases. Importantly, , each case is different and it is essential to consult with an attorney promptly so you can meet all deadlines. If you miss a deadline such as a Statute of Limitations, your case may be forever barred.

What is the average settlement amount?

This is a common question, but the truth is that there is no “one size fits all” answer. Settlements vary based on injury severity and duration, fault of the other driver, and other factors. Our team has access to actual settlement amounts and trial verdicts in other cases around Georgia and we can use that information to help determine a fair settlement amount in your unique circumstances.

How does insurance play a role?
