Cartersville Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury Lawyer Cartersville, Ga

The Angell Law Firm- The Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Cartersville, GA

Accidents can happen at any time, in any place, for any number of reasons. Even the simplest of mistakes can end up leading to life-changing injuries if you’re unlucky enough. What’s more, the accident doesn’t even have to be the result of your mistake. If that’s happened to you, you might be entitled to compensation from a personal injury case.

At Angell Law, we’re experts at securing you the compensation you deserve from accidents that weren’t your fault. Our team has been working in the field for years. If you’re in Cartersville and are in need of representation, you’re not going to find better than us.

Suffering an injury can be a rough time, physically, mentally, and financially. We understand that and operate with the discretion, speed, and sympathy that you deserve. If you need a personal injury lawyer, call us at (770) 217-4954 to arrange a free consultation.

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.

Common FAQs

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.

If you need advice as to what evidence to collect before you go to court, contact us. Give one of our Cartersville personal injury lawyers a call at (770) 217-4954 to take advantage of a free consultation.

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.

Client Testimonials

I chose this law firm due to the great reviews that I read online, and it was the best decision i’ve ever made! From start to finish the staff at Angell handled my cases really well. They are very professional, they know what they’re doing, and they have no problem answering questions and taking time to walk you through the process. When dealing with big insurance companies, it’s great to have a team to help negotiate to get what you truly deserve. Special thanks to Annie and Deanna as I worked more closely with them but the entire staff is amazing! If you need a lawyer I definitely recommend them. Thanks so much!

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers

Georgia State Capital

 

We’re Here for You in Your Hour of Need

At the Atlanta-based Angell Law Firm, we believe that injustice toward one is injustice toward all—and that a person who strives to save another is working toward justice for all others. That’s why our mission focuses on personal injury law. Nobody is more vulnerable than the injured.

If you want to know our story, you can read it here. Then make an appointment to visit us at our office on gorgeous, historic Peachtree Road, the grand boulevard running northward through the famed Buckhead community of Atlanta (and the site of Atlanta’s most noteworthy historical architecture).

We’re nestled near Lenox Mall among upscale boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and hotels. Jeffrey Selin wrote in The Los Angeles Times, “As Rodeo Drive is to Beverly Hills and Fifth Avenue is to Manhattan, so is Peachtree Road to Atlanta.”  

Automobiles, Trucks, Motorcycles, and Personal Injury in Atlanta

Georgia Personal Injury Statistics
Source: NCS Injury Facts

Drivers owe a “duty of care” to other motorists and pedestrians. They must be sure to check blind spots, remain attentive, be sober, and obey all rules of the road. Negligence of these duties is the crux of a client’s injury case.

At The Angell Law Firm, we deal with two particular types of auto accidents, each of which requires special legal knowledge beyond what simple car crash cases require:

  •     Truck accidents
  •     Motorcycle accidents

Truck accidents can be particularly devastating: Commercial trucks, when fully loaded with cargo, weigh 40 tons, on average. A truck of that weight traveling at 65 mph—the speed limit on I-285, the Atlanta perimeter—is always potentially deadly.

Our lives require truckers. Without them, an essential element of the worldwide supply chain suffers. Truckers matter. But truckers owe the same duty of care to you that you owe to them since you share the road.

Motorcyclists are not as well-shielded as car or truck drivers, which is why motorcycle accidents are most often quite serious. Internal injuries are frequent and often life-threatening. Brain injuries, for instance, can affect cognitive abilities, mood regulation, and motor skills.

Other motorcycle crash injuries are more apparent: from road rash to spinal cord injuries and amputations, they can be devastating. These conditions are costly to treat, and people too injured to work may lose their income, be unable to pay medical bills and costs of living, and have certain non-urgent kinds of care denied.

After a vehicular accident, seeking medical attention is imperative, even if you don’t think you need it. Your personal injury case will require extensive documentation, including evidence of your medical condition immediately after the accident. The defendant’s attorney will try to discredit you, so in order to bolster your defense, keep copies of all communications, including:

  •       Insurance letters
  •       Hospital bills
  •       Payslips that may show reduced wages due to absences
  •       Unpaid or late utility bills

If you’re involved in an accident and able to do so, take pictures of the scene and video recordings of eyewitnesses–with their consent, of course.

At The Angell Law Firm, we have seen it all—and while we wish we could never have to see it again, we will. And when we do, we won’t rest until we get you the compensation you deserve.

Wrongful Death on Atlanta Highways

Georgia Highways

Vehicular crashes account for the largest percentage of personal injuries nationwide. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported nearly 7 million crashes in the United States in 2018. 

According to the NHTSA, only 1% of auto crashes result in death. But that’s still more than 33,000 road-related deaths annually, 1,474 of them in Georgia. Road crashes are the leading cause of death for people under 55.

Accidents can happen anywhere, and they can be life-changing. Imagine you’re driving down Peachtree Road appreciating the beautiful Cathedral of St. Philip. Suddenly your car veers off the road after a negligent motorist from a side road strikes your passenger side in a t-bone impact. You’re injured, but alive. Your passenger, however, is not so lucky.

Georgia’s wrongful death statute, O.C.GA 51-4-2, permits the decedent’s family to file a wrongful death lawsuit against a negligent driver. The victim’s surviving spouse is the first person who can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased. If no spouse is living, then the order in which family members can file the suit is as follows:

  •     Parents
  •     Siblings
  •     Nieces and nephews
  •     Grandparents
  •     Their lineal descendants (blood relatives)

Damages that the court awards may vary but can include coverage of funeral and burial expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

If you’ve lost a spouse or family member in an accident due to the negligence of another party, our team of personal injury lawyers at The Angell Law Firm is here to take your case.

We’ll Win Your Case

Atlanta novelist Margaret Mitchell, who lived in Buckhead, was killed by a speeding motorist right on Peachtree Street in 1949. We at the Angell Law Firm live with that history every day, and we move forward in the knowledge that we have a special duty to injured Atlantans.

No financial settlement can bring back a loved one or restore a paraplegic’s ability to walk. But we understand that financial distress, lost wages, and property damage can diminish a person’s quality of life just as much as bodily injury can.

Even if you’re partially to blame for your injury, we can get you compensation. Plaintiffs who are deemed less than 50% responsible for an accident are eligible for partial defrayment.

Dealing with the law can be frightening, all the more so if you also have to deal with doctors, hospitals, insurance, and expensive medical bills. If you need an advocate that you can trust, we will be on your side.
