There Is a Limited Time to Recover Compensation
Life after an accident is challenging. You may be out of work, juggling medical appointments, and going to physical rehabilitation. You should not have to deal with the aftermath of your accident alone. The personal injury attorneys of Jonathan R. Brockman, P.C. have experience assisting their clients with the burdens that come with a severe accidental injury.
Compensation cannot completely cover the cost of your personal damage or property loss. But it can help you pay for daily expenses when you’re unable to work and can cover your medical costs. However, it’s important to know that Georgia has a statute of limitations.
The statute sets a time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit in court to pursue damages for your injuries and other losses. In Georgia, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this period, you may relinquish your right to recover damages in court.
It may sound like two years is a long time. But during this period, you must negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If that is not successful, you then need to gather evidence to support your case in court. Two years can go by quickly.
How a Peachtree Corners Lawyer Can Help
After an accident that was not your fault, you might think about handling negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company on your own. However, you should at least speak to an attorney about your claim. In many instances, the insurance company will send an insurance adjuster within the first hours or days to ask questions and potentially offer compensation for your damages.
It is important to note that the first offer is not usually fair compensation. This is because insurance adjusters are focused on limiting the financial liability of their company. They are skilled negotiators and are looking for information that may negatively impact your claim.
When they recognize that you have limited knowledge of the law, they may deliberately lower the amount they offer or delay settling your claim. This may run out the statute of limitations. Additionally, the longer negotiations go on, the greater the chance that you become discouraged.
Your legal team at Jonathan R. Brockman, P.C. can advise you about the evidence required to support your claim, negotiate with the insurance company, or litigate your claim in court if fair compensation cannot be negotiated. Don’t allow an unexpected accident or injury to destroy your savings and the life you’ve built for yourself and your family.

Some injuries are evident immediately after an accident. However, others, such as a back injury or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), can take hours or days to present symptoms.
It is crucial that you receive medical attention immediately after an accident. When there is significant injury, you will likely be transported by ambulance to a hospital. However, it is also essential that you follow up with your primary care provider after discharge.
