- Medical bills, past and future.

How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim In Georgia?
With limited exceptions, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in the state of Georgia is two years from the date the accident occurred. However, the sooner you can contact our personal injury attorneys in Peachtree Corners, the quicker we can begin preserving crucial evidence that will help build your case for success.
Will My Georgia Personal Injury Claim Require Me To Go To Court?
It is estimated that between 90-95% of personal injury claims end in negotiated settlements, and never reach the inside of a courtroom. However, if the liable party’s insurance company is not offering a fair settlement for any of our client’s cases, each attorney at Dermer Appel Ruder, LLC, is trial ready. With decades of courtroom experience, we will fully prepare and present your case to the jury and achieve the best result possible in that setting.
Can I File A Personal Injury Claim Without An Attorney In Georgia?
If you have been injured by a negligent person or party’s actions or inaction in Georgia and want to pursue the liable party’s insurance company on your own, you are entitled to do so. No law says you must partner with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney to file a claim.
However, the insurance company is going to expect you to build your case against them using the same evidence, medical documentation, and details a personal injury lawyer would. And, the trial court will hold you to that same standard. Judges and courthouse employees do not give out legal advice. Without proper evidence that their policyholder caused your injuries, which resulted in damages, they can — and typically will — significantly undervalue or outright deny your claim. Navigating a personal injury claim has a lot of potential pitfalls. By retaining an experienced attorney, you can focus on your recovery and taking care of yourself and your family.
Your case is typically worth a lot more than the sum of your medical bills and lost wages. Our skilled personal injury lawyers will help ensure no financial detail is left to chance, including the non-economic damages you suffered, so together we are pursuing the best potential outcome.
In addition, research has shown nine out of ten people who partnered with a personal injury lawyer received a settlement or award, compared to about half of those who proceeded on their own. What’s more, those who hire a personal injury lawyer receive, on average, more than four times as much in compensation as those who handle a personal injury case on their own.
