Victims who are injured under these circumstances have a right to be made whole again under the law. Accomplishing that requires an in-depth knowledge of several key areas of personal injury law. Something that I feel highly qualified to talk about because of my firm’s extensive personal injury litigation experience.”
Attorney Nugent first pointed out that in order to get a favorable outcome regarding a personal injury claim, it must be proved that a client’s injuries were sustained through no fault of their own. The person bringing forth a claim and their legal team must also be able to prove that they have suffered physical (bodily), mental, or emotional (psychological) harm.

Most lawyers will also try to negotiate a favorable settlement but if that does not work a lawsuit can be brought before a judge. This August, GA attorney also mentioned that there are several types of compensation that a plaintiff can seek when bringing forth a personal injury claim. This includes reimbursement for medical expenses, loss of income, and other expenses that were a direct result of a personal injury. He says compensation may also be awarded for pain & suffering, loss of future income, future medical care expenses, canceled or altered plans, and because of awarded punitive damages.
The firm’s founding attorney also talked about the different causes of personal injuries which often lead to people making a legal compensation claim. Among the most common which is injuries sustained in automobile accidents. He pointed out that car accident-related personal injury claims are a specialty of his law firm. Another common type of personal injury accident that was mentioned is slips & falls.
