How Serious Must My Injuries Be to File a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia?

At Dermer Appel Ruder, our Norcross personal injury attorneys know there is no specific threshold for the seriousness of injuries required to file a personal injury claim in Georgia. An accident with injuries is not just about how injured the person is but it is also about how their injuries affect them going forward.

While it is generally true that more severe injuries are more likely to result in higher settlements or judgments, we know that even smaller or more minor injuries impact our client’s daily activities and overall quality of life. Legitimate injuries, whether serious or minor, allow us to pursue a successful claim for our clients.

Every Georgia Personal Injury Claim is a Unique

Our Georgia personal injury attorneys have successfully represented individuals and families throughout the state, and each case we have taken has been as unique as the person and the circumstances that led to their injuries.

This is because we understand the words “serious” or “severe” are subjective. What may be serious to you may appear on paper to the insurance company as nothing more than a broken leg for example or a simple whiplash injury. If you are a server in a restaurant, a fractured leg  or pain standing for a long time due to neck or back pain will significantly impact your ability to work, possibly for months. The injuries are quite different with one being more “serious” than the other but they both can affect your livelihood. That matters.

This is why our Gwinnett County personal injury lawyers review each potential case based on each client’s complete circumstances. Your life differs significantly from someone else’s who may have suffered a similar injury. Getting to the bottom of how your injuries impact your overall well-being and ability to work makes a tremendous difference in how we approach your case.

When your accident and injuries were caused by negligence, no matter how simple or severe they appear on paper, the responsible party must be held liable for your costly medical bills, extended time away from work, and any additional accident-related expenses you incur.

Whether you have suffered severe injuries that disrupt your livelihood or catastrophic injuries that have changed your life, your case is unique and requires a customized legal approach to producing tangible results. We can help.
