Personal Injury Fault and Damages


No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing

Learn about Your Case from an Experienced Valdosta Personal Injury Lawyer

All personal injury cases in Georgia involve two key issues. The first is fault: In order to prove that someone else is liable for your injuries, you must be able to prove that he, she or it (in the case of a company) was at fault in the accident. The second is damages: In order to recover just compensation based upon someone else’s fault, you must also be able to prove how much you are entitled to recover under Georgia law. Each of these requires the advice and representation of an experienced Valdosta personal injury lawyer.

Common Financial and Non-Financial Losses in Personal Injury Cases

Regardless of the specific form (or forms) of fault at issue, if someone else is to blame for your injuries, you are entitled to just compensation. This is also referred to as the right to “damages.” In a typical personal injury case in Georgia, the types of damages that will be available include:

  • Medical and prescription costs
  • Transportation and other out-of-pocket costs
  • Loss of current and future earnings
  • Pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and scarring and disfigurement
  • Other forms of non-financial loss (i.e. loss of enjoyment of life)
