Dunwoody Personal Injury Attorney
Being injured in an accident can cause stress. You may suffer emotional turmoil, physical pain, your family may suffer strain, and your bills may pile up. If that accident was caused by another person, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit to hold them accountable for the pain and suffering they’ve caused you. The compensation you may receive could help to cover medical bills, your rehabilitation, lost income from your inability to work, and even the pain and suffering of you and your family.
To receive this compensation, you should turn to the services of a qualified personal injury attorney. For over 30 years the lawyers at Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. have helped people just like you recover financial damages for the accidents they’ve suffered.
What Is Negligence?
The key factor in any personal injury claim is negligence. That is, you must be able to show that your injury was caused by someone else acting in a way that is contrary to what a reasonable person would do in any given situation. Failing to do so, by acting in an irresponsible, careless or thoughtless way, is negligence.
Every person is expected to exercise a basic duty of care towards one another, to act in such a way as to not put others in danger. In any case where someone breaches, or does not live up to this basic duty, and injury results, they can be held responsible for the losses incurred.
Is My Case A Personal Injury Case?
Personal injury cases can fall under a broad range of accidents. Whether it’s a vehicle accident involving a car, truck, bicycle, motorcycle or another vehicle; a work-related accident; a slip-and-fall or other premises liability situation; or a wrongful death case, Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. attorneys can handle it. Essentially, when there’s an accident and you can prove that someone else didn’t exercise that basic duty of care and thereby caused you to be injured, that’s a personal injury case.
What Damages Can I Collect?
There is a broad range of damages that can be collected in personal injury cases; the exact figure will depend on the circumstances of the accident, the specific injuries suffered, and the degree of negligence displayed by the defendant. A few common types of damages include:
- Hospital, medical and rehabilitation costs
- Lost income and wages
- Lost potential future earnings
- Lost companionship and relationships
- Emotional damages
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral costs (in wrongful death suits)
