Personal Injury Lawyer in Gwinnett County, GA Working Hard to Get the Compensation You Deserve

When you suffer a personal injury, it can be easy to take your health for granted. You may have been injured in an accident that left you with a broken bone or a concussion. Maybe you were bitten by a dog or hit by a car. No matter how you were injured, it is likely that you will reassess your life and the things you take for granted after the accident.

It is common to feel like you have been given a second chance after suffering a personal injury. You may find that you are more appreciative of the people in your life and of the simple things, like being able to walk without pain. You may also find that you are more determined to achieve your goals and to make the most of your life.

However, it is important to remember that not everyone is as lucky as you. You may have suffered a physical injury in your accident, but many people also suffer from emotional injuries. It is important to seek help if you are feeling overwhelmed or like you are not coping with the accident. There is no shame in asking for help and there is no need to try to cope with everything on your own.

There is only so much that a person can do to preserve their own wellbeing. Any time you step out of the house, you may be at the mercy of other drivers, property owners, and even people taking their pets for a walk. While all these people have a legal duty to provide protection to prevent injuries, the plain truth is that accidents can and do happen.

If you have suffered an injury following an accident or a criminal act in or near Gwinnett County, you may have the right to collect compensation for any medical bills, other economic losses, and even for mental anguish. You may have a much easier time of it, though, if you have a qualified attorney helping you along the way. A Gwinnett County personal injury lawyer may be able to help you pursue these claims and fight for their full value.

With Attorney Scott Pryor leading the charge, you can be confident that your case is in good hands. If you would like to learn more about how we can help you, please do not hesitate to contact us. For a free consultation, call our Gwinett County personal injury law firm at (404) 474-7122 and get the dedicated and compassionate representation you deserve.

When Is Another Party Liable for an Injury?

Many of a person’s day-to-day activities come with an implicit social contract. For example, all motorists have an obligation to follow the rules of the road and to drive in a generally responsible way, and all property owners must maintain their land in a manner that is safe for visitors. These obligations create the legal concept of a duty of care, and a defendant who fails to uphold this duty may be liable to provide compensation to any person injured directly because of their lack of care.

Other injuries are the result of criminal conduct such as assault, arson, and robbery. While it is advisable for any victim of a crime to contact their local police, even an arrest and subsequent conviction cannot bring monetary compensation. A personal injury lawyer in Gwinnett County could help pursue civil claims for damages that are related to criminal conduct or accidental acts.

Georgia state law controls when a court will entertain a certain civil suit. Most cases utilize the Official Code of Georgia §9-3-33, which gives plaintiffs two years from the date of injury to pursue a claim. However, this time period may change depending on the exact nature of the claim.

This is why it is so important for anyone injured as the result of another person’s negligence or recklessness to speak with a personal injury attorney in Georgia as soon as possible. Not only will this preserve your legal rights, but an attorney can also help you navigate the complicated process of bringing a claim and ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence or criminal conduct, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a personal injury lawyer in Gwinnett County, GA today to discuss your case.

What Personal Injury Accidents Can Personal Injury Attorneys Help Me With?

There are many types of accidents that can give rise to a personal injury claim. Some of the most common include:

Car accidents

There are few things in life as frightening as being in a car accident. The sense of panic and helplessness that comes with being involved in a crash can be overwhelming. In the United States, there are many car accidents every year. While most of them are minor fender-benders, some of them can result in catastrophic injuries or death.

Car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding are all common causes of crashes. When a car accident happens, there are usually three things that happen: the impact, the aftermath, and the recovery. The impact is what happens when two cars collide. The aftermath is the immediate aftermath of the crash, when everyone is scrambling to figure out what happened. The recovery is the long process of healing both physically and emotionally after a car accident.

If you are ever in a car accident, remember to stay calm and to think clearly. Try not to make too many movements, especially if you feel like you are seriously injured. Get in touch with our law firm soon after you get medical attention so we can help you with your personal injury claim.

Truck accidents

A truck accident can be a devastating event. If you are in a car that is hit by a truck, the chances of survival are much lower than if you are in a smaller vehicle. This is because trucks are much larger and heavier than cars, and they take longer to stop. Truck accidents can also cause serious injuries to the people involved.

If you are injured in a truck accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away. You may also want to speak with an attorney to see if you have a case against the driver or the trucking company. A personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Not all personal injury claims are the same. We provide aggressive legal representation for those dealing with serious injuries. Let us help you get financial compensation for your recovery.

Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents can be very serious, often resulting in serious injuries or death. There are several things that riders can do to help reduce their risk of being in a motorcycle accident. First, always wear a helmet. Second, make sure your bike is in good working order and that you know how to properly operate it. Third, always obey the traffic laws. Finally, be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to other drivers. If you follow these tips, you can help reduce your risk of being in a motorcycle accident.

However, even if you follow these general guidelines, someone else’s negligence can ultimately cause you to be involved in an accident. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to seek the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Our team, led by Scott A. Pryor, has helped many clients recover the compensation they need after being injured in an accident. We understand the unique challenges that riders face and we are here to help.

Pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents are unfortunately all too common. Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents can be very severe, often leading to long-term health problems. Some of the most common injuries include head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and fractures.

Pedestrian accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Many times, pedestrians are struck by cars that are turning or backing up. Sometimes pedestrians are hit because they’re crossing the street in an area that’s not designated for crosswalks. And, sadly, sometimes pedestrians are hit by drivers who are drunk or driving recklessly.

If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, it’s important to seek medical attention right away. Then, you should speak with an attorney to discuss your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

What Injuries Typically Occur in a Personal Injury Accident?

There are many different types of personal injury accidents, and each one can lead to different kinds of injuries. However, there are some injuries that are more common in personal injury accidents than others. These include:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries: Head and brain injuries are some of the most serious injuries that can occur in any type of accident. If you’ve been involved in a personal injury accident, it’s important to watch for signs of a head or brain injury, such as dizziness, headache, nausea, confusion, and memory loss.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis and other serious health problems. If you’ve been involved in an accident that has caused you to lose feeling or movement in your arms or legs, it’s important to seek medical attention right away as you may have suffered a spinal cord injury.
  • Broken bones: Broken bones can be difficult to recover from, especially if the bone or bones that are broken are vital to your everyday life. You don’t deserve to have to suffer because of someone else’s negligence, and an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to recover.
  • Burns: Burns can be extremely painful, and they often leave permanent scarring. If you’ve been burned in a personal injury accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

The sooner you speak with an experienced and knowledgeable Peachtree Corners lawyer, the better your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve. Contact our office today to schedule a free consultation. We’ll review your case and answer any questions you have.

How Much Compensation Can I Recover Through My Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The amount of compensation you can recover through your personal injury lawsuit will depend on the specific details and circumstances surrounding your case. In general, however, you may be able to recover damages for:

Medical Expenses: You may be able to recover the costs of any medical treatment you required as a result of your injuries, including past and future expenses.

Lost Wages: If your injuries prevent you from being able to work, you may be able to recover the wages you have lost as a result. You may also be able to recover future lost earnings if your ability to work is permanently affected.

Pain and Suffering: You may be able to recover compensation for the physical pain and emotional suffering you have endured as a result of your injuries.

Punitive Damages: In some cases, punitive damages may also be available. Punitive damages are designed to punish defendants who have engaged in particularly egregious behavior and are not available in all personal injury cases.

It is important to note that not all personal injury lawsuits are the same. While personal injury lawyers will fight for you at every turn, the insurance company on the other side can make it difficult to receive the payout you truly deserve. We hold the insurance company accountable for their unfair practices and help you negotiate a fair settlement that’ll get you back on your feet sooner than later. Your personal injury case shouldn’t hinge on the insurance company not wanting to pay you what you deserve. Let us get justice on your behalf.

If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you understand your legal rights and options. An experienced attorney knowledgeable about Georgia law can help you determine the value of your claim and fight for the maximum compensation possible. Contact a personal injury lawyer today to schedule a free consultation.

What Can a Gwinnett County Personal Injury Lawyer Do to Help?

Some injuries and losses in life are inevitable. Still, there is no reason that you should have to suffer the consequences of someone else’s poor decisions. It is bad enough that you have a personal injury that may affect your health and quality of life—you should not have to pay the financial price for another person’s negligence as well.

A Gwinnett County personal injury lawyer could help you pursue the money needed to set things right. They could work from day one to explain the relevant laws, conduct their own investigations into the incident, and form demand packages that outline your case and why the defendant should provide payment. For a free consultation, call our Gwinett County personal injury law firm at (404) 474-7122 and get the dedicated and compassionate representation you deserve.
