What if the Injury was My Fault?
If the accident occurred thanks to negligence both on your part, and someone else’s, your case becomes contributory negligence. That’s only if it is you and another party to blame. If it’s 100% your fault, then, unfortunately, there is no compensation to speak of.
In the event of contributory negligence, the court will work through the evidence. From there, they will determine a percentage value of blame that each party is responsible for. Then, both parties pay compensation to the other relative to that percentage. These kinds of cases can get difficult. If you’re in Cartersville and find yourself needing a personal injury lawyer for a case like this, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from doing our free consultations, it’s that people have questions. A lot of questions. Some questions are more common than others. We’ve collected them all for you down below.
How long do personal injury cases take?
It depends on how complicated your case is. For example, say you fell off a ladder because it was too old to fit its purpose in work. We could settle that in six to eight months on average.
However, if you believe you have received radiation poisoning at work, that is a different story. There is a lot more that goes into the case. There is more evidence to be collected, it’s harder to prove, and all in all, is going to take longer.
What evidence do I need?
When you’re collecting your evidence for court, there are some things you need at the bare minimum. You should take photos of the injury, the accident, and if you can the general area surrounding the accident. Compile any bills or financial burdens you’ve incurred as a result. This includes medical reports and any police reports that were filed.

What Requirements Make Up a Personal Injury Case?
In Cartersville, there are a few checkboxes that you need to tick in order for you to have a viable personal injury case. Before you even look into that, though, you need to make sure that the injury has had a significant impact on your life. You’re going to have a hard time getting a paper cut personal injury case through court.
Being unable to work is a perfect example of the type of injury that can be claimed on. However, must have had an impact on your life and wellbeing. If that is the case, then you should be good to go.
First, The accident must clearly be the result of a visible third party’s negligence.
Say you’re at Red Top Mountain Park, and some wind knocks a tree branch off onto your head. You’re not going to have a case. However, if a worker is up in the tree cutting that branch down, then you do.
The third-party can be an individual or an organization. There needs to be a clear entity to point to when laying the blame for the injury.
Second, the entity who is to blame needs to actually be able to pay for your compensation.
In most cases, there is an insurance firm that covers the cost. This is typical in workplace accidents or in motor-related accidents.
However, there are cases where there is no insurance company. In this case the individual needs to have the personal funds to be able to pay your compensation. If you’re worried about this, you can call us with your concern. We can try our best to walk you through the situation.
Third, the accident needs to have occurred within the last two years.
There’s no point trying to claim for an injury that you received way back in the day. Primarily because there’s a distinct lack of evidence. That makes this hard to hold up in court, but also because it’s unreasonable.
We can’t reiterate this enough. If you’re in Cartersville and need some personal injury legal advice, contact us. Call (770) 217-4954 and one of our personal injury lawyers should be more than happy to help you.
