Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Cases in Macon Georgia
A serious injury can turn your life upside down in the blink of an eye. We live in a world full of uncertainty, but there is no excuse for the type of carelessness that leads to life-altering injuries. When someone else is responsible for the harm you or a loved one suffers, you have the right to take legal action. A lawsuit cannot take away the pain and long-term effects of an accident or injury, but it can provide you with a sense of justice and the financial compensation you need to recover and move forward with your life. At Nelson & Smith, we believe personal injury law is about more than winning cases – it’s about helping families in Middle Georgia overcome some of the most difficult times of their lives.
Types of Personal Injury Cases:
There are three basic elements in any personal injury. To secure a settlement, a plaintiff must prove:
- The defendant owed the injured person a reasonable duty of care (e.g., all drivers on the road are responsible for following the rules of the road),
- The defendant failed to act in accordance with that duty (he or she acted negligently), and
- The negligent action led directly to a victim’s serious injury.
In the vast majority of cases, an injured individual has two years from the time of the incident or the discovery of the injury to file a lawsuit. If you or a loved one is injured, contact our Macon Personal Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. A free consultation can help you determine if filing a lawsuit is the best course of action in your case. The sooner your injury attorney starts working on your case, the better your chances are for securing fair compensation.
