Personal injury litigation in Georgia

People are injured or killed in accidents every day. Sometimes these accidents are caused by the negligent behavior of another person or entity. If you or a family member has suffered an injury due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. The skilled personal injury lawyers at Cowsert & Avery, LLP can help you collect the monetary damages you deserve in cases involving—

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Products liability
  • Slips, trips, and falls (premises liability)
  • Wrongful death

Proving negligence is not always easy, but it is necessary

The state of Georgia requires plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits to prove that the person who caused the injury was negligent. You must demonstrate that the defendant—

  • Owed a duty of care to you
  • Failed to carry out the duty they owed to you
  • Caused your injury by failing to carry out the duty they owed you

If your own carelessness contributed to your injury, Georgia's comparative negligence law allows for the amount you recover to be reduced in proportion to your carelessness. If the court finds that your recklessness contributed more to your accident than the other person, you will not recover any compensation.

A knowledgeable and experienced Georgia personal injury lawyer can help you collect the monetary damages to which you are entitled. This may include compensation for—

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Time lost from work, including time spent at medical appointments
  • Any property damaged in your accident
  • Any permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Your emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, and any interference with your family relationship
  • Any other expenses directly resulting from your injury
