Personal Injury Overview
What is personal injury?
A personal injury claim involves an injured person (the plaintiff) seeking compensation from the person or entity that caused the injury (the defendant). Under normal circumstances, the Atlanta car accident and personal injury attorneys at Zevin & Rosenbloum will negotiate your claim with the insurance company for the at-fault party. A personal injury claim involves evaluation of the injury and damages suffered as well as the conduct of the defendant. Many factors impact the manner in which a personal injury claim proceeds including the severity of the injuries, the degree of fault of the defendant as well as the availability of insurance coverage or other sources of compensation.
A personal injury claim may arise under a variety of circumstances including motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, assaults and falls on dangerous property. Many personal injury claims are resolved without filing a lawsuit. Materials including the medical records and bills, evidence of wages lost, comparable verdicts or settlements and expert reports if needed are typically sent to the defendant’s insurer with a demand for payment. The settlement of a claim saves both sides from the risks and costs of litigation. If the plaintiff and defendant cannot agree on a settlement amount, litigation of the claim will be necessary.
