Most people are aware that when they get injured in an accident, they can seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and even pain and suffering. Some people are not aware, however, of what kinds of injuries are eligible for compensation. Many people consider a serious injury one that requires long term hospitalization or surgery. But this is often not the case; many people win compensation for injuries that, though serious, do not require surgery and were not immediately evident after the accident. If you have questions about whether your injuries may be compensated, call the Georgia personal injury lawyers at The Berry Law Group.
When you are injured in an accident caused by somebody else such as a car accident, a slip and fall accident, an incident involving a defective product or a medical malpractice issue in the state of Georgia, you can ask to be compensated for your medical bills and injury related expenses. In order to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation you need, you should hire a Georgia personal injury lawyer to represent you. Injuries do not have to be life threatening or permanent, any injury that requires any type of medical attention or treatment or that causes you to miss work may be eligible for compensation. The thought process behind these laws in Georgia is that when you when an accident is caused by another party, they are responsible for the damage is that they cause to your property and to your person. Now this may seem very black and white, but that is not always so. In order to receive compensation, you will have to prove that: #1 the other party was responsible for the accident due to his/her negligence and #2 that your injuries are directly related to the accident. This can be an overwhelming task for a single person, so many injured people seek the help of a Georgia personal injury lawyer.
