Answering Your Questions About Personal Injury Claims

When you suffer an injury due to another party’s negligence, it can leave you with a lot of questions. At Prine Law Group, we aim to provide clients with the information and support they need as we seek compensation for their injuries. Below, our lawyers have answered several of the questions we hear most often to help you learn what to expect when filing a personal injury claim in Georgia.

Will my case go to trial?

Many personal injury cases are resolved through settlements without going to trial. However, it ultimately depends on the specifics of your case and the willingness of both parties to reach an agreement. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, our founding attorney, Joseph Prine, is undeterred by the possibility of litigation.

How long do personal injury cases take?

The duration of personal injury cases varies widely. Some cases may be resolved in a few months through a settlement, while others may take several years, especially if they go to trial. Factors such as the complexity of the case, the extent of your injuries and the resistance to your claim from the defense can impact the timeline.

Should I take the insurance company’s settlement offer?

It’s crucial to carefully evaluate any settlement offer with the assistance of a lawyer. Insurance companies may offer a quick settlement to minimize their costs. That offer is usually less than fair. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine the true value of your claim.

How long do I have to bring a personal injury lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit is governed by the statute of limitations. In Georgia, that is two years for most claims. It’s important to consult with an attorney promptly to ensure you meet any applicable deadlines. The sooner you begin, the easier it may be to get the compensation you deserve.

What should I look for in a personal injury lawyer?

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, consider their experience, track record of success and personal approach to customer service. You need someone who will work diligently on your behalf and keep you informed along the way.

How much is my case worth?

The value of a personal injury case depends on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, your medical expenses, any lost wages and other damages. One of the benefits of choosing an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you is the knowledge of what is and isn’t a fair settlement offer.
