Milton Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be owed compensation for your injuries. Every day, we trust other people’s decisions on the roads, in medical settings, while using various products, and more. When someone acts negligently, they can put others in danger and cause significant harm.
Car accidents are the top cause for personal injury claims, and in 2020, there were 436 vehicle accidents in Milton alone, 79 of which involved injuries, according to the Milton Police Department. Whether you were injured in a car accident or any other situation, the responsible party should be held accountable for the injuries that occurred as a result of their negligence.
Why You Need a Lawyer
It is possible to file a personal injury claim on your own, without the assistance of an attorney, but it is not recommended. Insurance companies often take advantage of the general public’s lack of knowledge about legal matters and may offer you a settlement that is much less than what you actually deserve. Additionally, one poorly worded statement, a missed deadline, or a form filled out incorrectly could seriously jeopardize your ability to recover compensation.
Our attorneys understand the big picture of the legal process and we will help you put all the pieces together to build a strong case. An experienced personal injury attorney also will be able to help you understand how Georgia law applies to your situation. For example, if you are partially at fault for an accident, you may still have a case even though your compensation may be reduced.

Types of Compensation Available
The amount of compensation you are owed will depend on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and the other impacts the injury has had on your lifestyle. In general, you may be owed compensation for:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Long term care or rehabilitation
If your loved one was killed due to someone else’s negligence, under Georgia law, the surviving spouse, child, or parent may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover costs for the funeral and burial expenses, loss of the deceased person’s wages, and other costs associated with their death.
Although we cannot guarantee any specific results, our attorneys will be able to help you get a general idea of what your case may be worth during a free consultation.
Do I Have a Case?
Not everyone who is injured will have a viable personal injury case. In order to receive compensation for your injuries, you will need to prove that someone else had a responsibility to keep you safe, that they breached that responsibility, and that your injuries were a direct result of their negligence.
For example, in a car accident involving an intoxicated driver who broke multiple traffic laws, you would need to have clear documentation of your injuries, as well as evidence that the other driver was under the influence and broke laws. In a medical malpractice case, you may need to prove that a doctor did not follow the correct protocol for a surgery, or that a pharmacist gave you the wrong prescription, and that those mistakes directly caused harm to you.
Fortunately, you don’t have to figure this out on your own. If you suspect that you may have a personal injury case, you can share the details with us during a free consultation and our attorneys can help you understand your legal options.
