Acworth, GA is home to more than 28,000 residents of the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Personal injury law seems straightforward at first, but many factors can complicate an otherwise simple case. The crux of any personal injury lawsuit is negligence, or the failure of one party to uphold a duty of care in a given situation. It’s a good idea for everyone to know what to expect from any personal injury claim in Georgia.
After an injury, the victim should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Any delay in treatment may not only lead to dangerous medical complications later, but also complicate a lawsuit. A jury will assume that if a victim waited to seek medical treatment then his or her injuries were not as bad as they claimed. A good rule of thumb after any workplace injury, car accident, or other incident with potential for injury is for victims to seek medical care as soon as possible. After receiving medical care, the victim can obtain a medical report from his or her attending physician that outlines the extent of the injuries and the victim’s prognosis, including potential for future medical complications.
When a car accident results in injury, death, or property damage, police officers will respond to the scene and draft a report of their initial findings. Anyone considering a personal injury lawsuit for a car accident should obtain a copy of the accident’s police report as soon as possible. Other valuable evidence can include photos from the scene of the incident in question, statements from eyewitnesses, and testimony from relevant experts who can support the plaintiff’s claims.
In court, success in a personal injury case revolves around the plaintiff’s ability to prove negligence. This entails four elements:
If the plaintiff’s attorney can successfully establish these elements of negligence, it is likely the plaintiff will win the case. Georgia follows a contributory negligence law, so if the plaintiff bears any amount of fault in the accident, he or she will lose a portion of the case award equal to his or her fault percentage. For example, in a $100,000 case in which the courts find a plaintiff 30% at fault, the plaintiff will lose 30% of the case award for a total award of $70,000.
