Walking Victims Through the Injury Process

Answers from the Dunwoody Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in any type of accident, you need to start your journey toward financial and physical recovery. I have been working in law for 22 years and handled over 3,000 personal injury cases. If you need assistance as you work through the logistics of an injury, I can help. Have a specific question? Look to the Dunwoody injury attorney at my firm today!

Steps to Take After Your Injury

After you are injured, chances are you will be sent to the hospital. At this point, the doctors and nurses will take all means necessary to facilitate your recovery. This may mean:

  • Surgery
  • Medications
  • Treatments
  • Scans
  • Tests
  • Other procedures

You may need to remain in the hospital overnight or may receive extensive care as an outpatient. Regardless of what medical action is taken, you can be almost certain that you will end up with costly bills.

In addition to medical treatment, chances are that you will need time to recover from your injury. Whether you are out of work for a few days or several years, you may lose wages or the ability to return to your job because of your injuries. All of these costs are considered damages. If someone else was liable for your accident, you can seek damages from the responsible party.

That's where I come in. I am an aggressive Dunwoody personal injury lawyer who can provide assistance in out-of-court settlements or in-court litigation.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Sometimes, you may be able to recover the damages you need by working with insurance companies. I always caution my clients: Don't just take the first settlement amount that you are offered by the insurance provider. Sometimes, you can achieve a much higher settlement or verdict with the help of an injury attorney. I can help you with insurance company negotiations and am committed to working to provide the highest settlement possible.

Targeting Liable Parties in Your Dunwoody Injury Case

If you don't get the settlement you were hoping for from your insurance provider, you can target a liable party through litigation. Oftentimes, cases can be resolved in pre-trial negotiations, meaning you may not actually have to go to trial. We can help you structure a lawsuit and file in hopes of getting the satisfactory settlement you deserve.

What Kind of Damages Can I Seek?

Depending on the nature of your case, you may be able to seek damages for:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Future medical costs
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Psychological services resulting from the accident
  • Costs of necessary therapy or physical therapy
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement

Every personal injury case is different, which means that every individual will face a different process when seeking compensation. Call my firm at (678) 974-0432 today if you want my professional opinion about how you should proceed with your case.
