If you suffered an injury in Columbus due to another person or entity’s negligence, you might have a claim for monetary damages. While many lawsuits result in a trial by jury, the vast majority of cases conclude with a settlement between the parties. A seasoned personal injury attorney experienced with negotiating with insurance companies could represent you throughout the settlement and litigation process and work to recover adequate compensation. Contact a Columbus personal injury lawyer to schedule a consultation and learn about your legal options.

Damages Available in a Columbus Personal Injury Lawsuit

The damages available in a Columbus personal injury suit depend on the nature of the injuries. While some injury claims are minor, others involve life-altering consequences. A lawsuit can seek monetary damages for these injuries. Common damages in a personal injury case include:

Medical Bills

In many cases, medical expenses make up the majority of damages. Depending on the severity of the injury, medical bills can cost thousands of dollars. A plaintiff is entitled to seek not only past medical expenses but also future medical costs associated with the injury as well.

Pain and Suffering

A plaintiff has the right to pursue damages for any physical pain or suffering resulting from the injury. While pain and suffering damages may seem speculative, many courts award these damages based on a multiple of the medical bills as well as testimony from doctors and nurses.

Lost Wages

Time away from work can harm a plaintiff financially. When an injury costs a plaintiff a paycheck, they can seek to recover those lost wages from the person responsible for their injuries.

How Should a Claimant Negotiate with Insurance Companies?

While a personal injury lawsuit typically names the person responsible as the defendant, an insurance company will ultimately be responsible for paying out a settlement in most cases. Insurance companies defend thousands of lawsuits at any given time, and they have perfected the tactic of short-changing complainants.

However, insurance companies know when they are facing off against experienced trial counsel. A dedicated Columbus personal injury attorney may be able to fight back against the insurance company and ensure you receive fair treatment.

What is the Statute of Limitations?

Every state has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims, which sets a time limit in which a plaintiff must file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations in Georgia varies from one type of case to another, but there is a statute of limitations for every type of civil lawsuit. Georgia Statute Section 9-3-33 sets the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit at two years from the date of the injury.

A judge has the power to permanently dismiss a lawsuit filed after the expiration of the statute of limitations. To avoid forfeiting a viable personal injury lawsuit, a plaintiff may benefit from working with a skilled personal injury lawyer in Columbus.

Call a Columbus Personal Injury Attorney Right Away

Every injured person deserves compassion and respect. Facing the challenge of recovering from an injury is hard enough, but knowing it was the fault of another person only makes things more difficult. Thankfully, you may be able to seek justice for your injury with the help of a Columbus personal injury lawyer. To learn about how to initiate a personal injury lawsuit, call today to schedule an initial consultation.
