Proving fault or liability can often be a complicated and challenging process. You may know who acted wrongfully and what they did, but to recover compensation, you must prove their wrongful conduct.
An experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney understands the elements of a personal injury claim. Hiring a lawyer can significantly increase your chances of winning and the amount you will recover.
Demonstrating legal liability requires that you prove a person acted negligently. Most claims of negligence stem from careless behavior that results in injuries.
Bringing a successful negligence claim requires proving four essential elements:
- A person had a duty to act to avoid harming others
- The person breached that duty by acting carelessly
- The person’s carelessness caused injuries to another person
- The victim suffered damages that can be compensated by a court
Proving negligence can be complicated. You can demonstrate the other party’s negligence through evidence such as:
- Photographs of the scene of the incident
- Testimonies from witnesses
- Police and accident reports
- Medical and hospital records
- Accident reconstruction experts
- Expert testimony from doctors who can testify to the cause of your injuries
Your lawyer knows which types of evidence are most important and can assist you in gathering the relevant information to prove your case.
Our Case Results

Why It’s Important to Act Quickly in Personal Injury Cases
If you suffered injuries, you should first seek medical attention. We understand how traumatizing this time can be. But it is crucial to begin legal proceedings quickly.
To take legal action, you must file a personal injury claim within the required statute of limitations. In Georgia, you normally have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. This deadline applies to most forms of personal injury claims. In some circumstances, including actions against government entities, Indian reservations, and cruise ships, the laws may differ. In those cases, the statute of limitations may be even shorter.
If you attempt to file your claim after the two-year period, the court will almost certainly dismiss your case. Regardless of the defendant’s liability and the severity of your injuries, if you miss this deadline, you will lose your opportunity to file a lawsuit. It is important to remember that this deadline applies to lawsuits in court, as well as any settlement proceedings.
You must act quickly if you wish to take legal action. An experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer can help you calculate your statute of limitations and begin legal proceedings to preserve your claim.
