How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take?
While Georgia law specifies that personal injury and wrongful death cases must be brought against negligent parties within two years of the date of the incident, there is no set time for how long a case will take to resolve. The amount of time depends on the complexity of the case, your legal counsel, and whether the case will require a trial. Constant communication with your injury lawyer can help set expectations for your specific situation.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
After suffering an injury, you may not immediately understand the impact that it has on your life - physically and mentally.
The value of a personal injury case is based on the:
The extent of the injuries you suffered
Cost of past and future medical expenses
Income and wages lost
Amount of emotional distress
Every single personal injury case is unique and requires review by an experienced lawyer to determine the facts and circumstances of the case. There is no guarantee, but Scot Kraeuter Personal Injury Law strives to maximize the compensation our clients receive.
Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
During personal injury cases, you are primarily dealing with insurance companies seeking to make money for their shareholders. They do not care how much an injury has impacted your life. Their only concern is to minimize the amount of money they must pay. A skilled personal injury attorney in Savannah understands how the insurance company works, the tactics they use to disadvantage the injured, and how to fight back.
How Much Will a Personal Injury Case Cost Me?
