Personal injury law is filled with pitfalls that ruin a victim’s ability ability to recover compensation in a personal injury claim. At Wolfe Law Group, our only practice area is personal injury law. Below are resources provided from our Dallas personal injury lawyer that may be useful to you and your loved ones. We are proud to assist accident victims in Paulding County with their personal injury claims.

What is a personal injury case?

  • Personal injury law is a term used to describe the law that applies in relation to negligence occurring in a wide swath of different circumstances. The most common situation in which a member of the public finds themself involved in a personal injury claim is a car crash. In traffic collisions, victims often hire a personal injury attorney for assistance in dealing with the insurance companies that are involved in the case.

A personal injury lawyer’s job is to prove that negligence occurred.

  • In any personal injury case, the victim is known as the “Plaintiff” and the at-fault party is known as the “Defendant.” For negligence to have occurred, it must be shown that the: Defendant had a duty to act or avoid acting in a particular way; the Defendant failed to conform to that duty; the Defendant’s failure to conform to that duty both actually and proximately caused harm to the Plaintiff; and that Plaintiff suffered damages as a result.
  • A personal injury attorney gathers evidence to support each element of negligence to prove the personal injury case. Normally an attempt is made to resolve a personal injury case without civil litigation. When a lawsuit is filed in a personal injury case, the case is considered to be in litigation. Not every case requires litigation.
  • It is important for members of the public to understand-a personal injury lawyer only practices personal injury law. Some lawyers who claim to be personal injury attorneys also practice family law and criminal defense. This type of lawyer is what is known as a “general practitioner.” At Wolfe Law Group, our attorney truly is a personal injury attorney, devoting 100% of his time practicing law to personal injury. And the great thing is that unlike some lawyers, personal injury lawyers normally provide a free consultation, we certainly do.
  • Once the lawyer proves that negligence has occurred, the lawyer focuses on proving damages. The damages that can be demonstrated will dictate how much compensation can be recovered in a personal injury case. In some cases punitive damages may be appropriate, which are not compensatory but are designed to punish a defendant.

What steps should you take after a Dallas GA car accident?

Car accidents occur all too often in Dallas, Georgia, whether on the Dallas Acworth Highway, or side roads. If you or a loved one have been involved in a car accident, we suggest you review these steps.

  • The first step is to call 911 following a car accident.
  • The next step is to seek medical treatment immediately if you need it.
  • Apart from calling emergency responders and seeking treatment for your injuries, the next most important thing to do is to take photographs.
  • Photographs are key pieces of evidence that every qualified GA personal injury lawyer uses when presenting a claim to an auto insurance company, judge, or jury.
  • You should also take photographs of any injuries that you have sustained. It is best if you take photographs from many different angles, as well as close-ups and from a distance to offer greater perspective to anybody viewing the images.
  • If you notice any evidence that would go to prove that the other driver may have been negligent due to intoxication by alcohol or drugs, it is important that you take note of these factors as well.
  • If you are the family member of a deceased car accident victim and intend to pursue a wrongful death claim, you can visit the crash scene or find the vehicle at the junk yard to take pictures to provide to the lawyer.

If you have been involved in a car accident or motorcycle accident in Georgia, you likely have dealt with law enforcement following your traffic collision. Generally, after every Georgia motor vehicle incident, law enforcement creates a Georgia Uniform Crash Report. This report is used by lawyers in every traffic related personal injury case. Sometimes the report will also document criminal charges, for instance if a drunk driver is involved.

Sometimes police reports are also completed for incidents that lead to a premises liability claim. Often times a police report is one of the first pieces of information that a lawyer provides to an insurance company. If there is something in the crash report that you do not agree with, you should advise your attorney immediately. Sometimes police officers make mistakes when investigating an incident or completing a report.

Your Dallas personal injury attorney may be able to bring this to the attention of responding law enforcement and law enforcement may respond by correcting the report.
