Georgia Personal Injury Victims Deserve Justice
Most personal injuries are more than “just accidents,” meaning that at-fault parties contributed. Regardless, those who cause an accident can be held liable in civil court if their actions directly cause someone else to get hurt.
Kam, Ebersbach & Lewis, P.C. represents injury victims in LaGrange when facing:
- 18-wheeler accidents
- Car accidents
- Catastrophic injuries
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
Someone is liable if they owed you a duty of care, failed to fulfill it, and caused proximate or direct injuries. Our LaGrange personal injury lawyers will investigate your accident and preserve evidence that speaks to the facts.
Comparative Negligence Rules Affect Your Settlement
Like all US states, Georgia follows a specific rule that assigns fault to parties according to the degree of negligence exhibited. This rule is also known as modified comparative negligence and is codified under OCGA § 51-12-33.
Under it, you bear the burden of proof when asserting your right to additional compensation. However, you must also prove that the at-fault party was at least 50 percent or more at fault to recover an award.
Insurers know this rule, and policyholders could lessen liability by insisting that you caused the accident. The LaGrange personal injury lawyers at Kam, Ebersbach & Lewis, P.C. ensure that they do not evade responsibility.
