Accidents and injuries are part of the human experience, but when they occur due to the negligence of someone else, you may have legal recourse. One option is to file a personal injury lawsuit.

You might be entitled to money from those that directly or indirectly caused your accident. A Cobb County personal injury lawyer could represent your interests and seek to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

What is a Personal Injury?

In legal terms, an individual suffers a personal injury when they are injured because of the actions or inactions of another entity or individual. The injured person could hold the responsible party liable in civil court with the help of a personal injury lawyer in Cobb County.

Examples of personal injury cases include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Wrongful death
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Intentional assaults

Every personal injury case is different, so it may be in a potential plaintiff’s best interest to speak with an experienced attorney about the specifics of their case.

Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases are usually based on the negligence of the defendant. The defendant—for example, a doctor, property owner, or driver—owed a duty of care to the plaintiff in the course of their position.

A medical professional must use the same standard of care that another reasonably prudent medical professional would use when treating patients, for example. Similarly, a property owner has a duty to keep their premises safe or to mark unsafe hazards properly. A driver owes a duty of care to other people on the roadways and should drive in the same way that other reasonably prudent motorists would drive. If a person breaches the duty associated with their position, they are negligent and may be liable.

Georgia Time Limits to File Personal Injury Suits

The statute of limitations places a time limit on how long a plaintiff has to file a lawsuit. Having a statute of limitations helps the courts attend to cases in a timely manner.

Personal injury plaintiffs in Cobb County are limited by Georgia Code § 9-3-33 to a two-year statute of limitations from the date of their injury. Allowing this deadline to pass without filing a lawsuit could likely bar the plaintiff from recovering their damages in the future. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible after sustaining a personal injury is in the potential plaintiff’s best interest.

How a Cobb County Personal Injury Attorney Could Help

Filing and winning a lawsuit will never make your life exactly what it was prior to your personal injury. With the help of a knowledgeable Cobb County personal injury lawyer, however, you can come as close as possible to having your old life back. Compensation may allow you to pay your medical bills, make up for your lost wages, and even receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
