What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law covers legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. The purpose of personal injury law is to provide relief to the injured party and deter others from committing similar offenses.

Personal Injury Laws in Georgia

In Georgia, personal injury cases are governed by a set of statutes designed to protect the rights of individuals who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful actions of others. Key aspects include:

  • Statute of Limitations: In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident or injury. This means you have a limited time to file a lawsuit, so it is crucial to act quickly.
  • Comparative Negligence: Georgia follows a modified comparative negligence rule. If you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. If you are 50% or more at fault, you cannot recover any damages.
  • Damages: In a personal injury case, you may be entitled to various types of damages, including economic damages (medical expenses, lost wages) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering, emotional distress).

Jamie is a true professional and delivers on her promises. She is hands on and communicative with her clients, there was no assistant barrier and I appreciated direct contact with her. She provided updates, followed up as expected and explained the process as simply as possible. It’s been a long road since my accident but I’m walking away feeling compensated and whole thanks to her representation. Very grateful for the referral to her business and would happily refer anyone in similar circumstances to her office!

Mrs. Ballard provided me with excellent service. She responds to ANY question in a timely manner. She answers her telephone whenever need be (even late night/early mornings). She will negotiate her hardest so you can have a decent settlement after fees. Also her receptionist Tina is the sweetest lady you will ever meet. Thanks again!!! I will definitely be recommending Mrs. Ballard to family and peers! I also love that she’s black-owned and a woman!!! <3
