  • You Deserve Time to Focus on Getting Better

    After a serious accident in Atlanta, you really need time to focus on yourself and getting better. That’s tough to do when you’re trying to dealing with the stress and complications that accompany a lawsuit. Fortunately, there’s a great solution: hiring our Atlanta personal injury lawyers. We’ll handle every aspect of your accident case from start to finish.

    This (a) gives you time to focus on your recovery and (b) sets you up to not only win your case, but get all of the money you deserve.

  • You’re Not Sure Who’s Responsible For Your Injuries

    Accidents are complicated. They’re rarely straightforward. In reality, a lot of different things can contribute to a crash or fall. When that’s the case, multiple parties might be responsible and on the hook for resulting damages.

    When you hire a personal injury lawyer in Atlanta to handle your case, you can benefit from an independent investigation. At Hasner Law, we’ll dig deep to figure out what caused your accident and who might be at fault. Our approach can help you seek compensation from anyone who shares even the smallest bit of responsibility for your accident.

  • You’re Not Sure What Your Personal Injury Case is Worth

    Insurance companies will want to have the final say when it comes to assigning a value to your case. They’ll try to manipulate you and play on your emotions to get you to accept a lowball offer that doesn’t reflect what your case is really worth. Hiring a lawyer can protect you from these efforts and set you up to recover the money you deserve.   Our team will review the details of your case, work with reputable experts, and identify your damages.

What Damages Can I Recover From an Atlanta Personal Injury Lawsuit?

At Hasner Law, our Atlanta personal injury attorneys will aggressively seek damages from anyone who caused you to get hurt. Generally speaking, there are three different types of damages that might be available to accident victims in Georgia: economic, non-economic, and punitive.

  • Economic Damages

    Economic damages are paid to compensate you for the identifiable financial costs of your accident.

    This might include things like:

    • medical expenses,
    • rehabilitation,
    • property damage, and
    • lost wages and income.

    The purpose of economic damages is to make sure that you’re made whole again after an accident that result in personal injuries.

  • Non-Economic Damages

    Not all of your injuries will be easy to value in simple monetary terms. That doesn’t mean they’re not harmful or devastating. It simply means that the value of those injuries can vary significantly from one case to another.

    You may be entitled to non-economic damages for things like: chronic pain, pain and suffering, emotional distress, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety, disfigurement and scarring, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. It’s important to work with a Georgia personal injury lawyer who knows how to fight for you and make sure that your non-economic damages are not only identified, but valued properly.

  • Punitive Damages

    Punitive damages are awarded to punish someone who caused significant harm. They’re rarely awarded in personal injury cases. It ultimately depends on the specific circumstances of each case and whether the defendant’s conduct warrants punishment.

    Generally speaking, punitive awards are only handed down when there is “clear and convincing evidence that the defendant’s actions showed willful misconduct, malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression, or that entire want of care which would raise the presumption of conscious indifference to consequences.” (O.C.G.A. § 51-12-2).

Client Testimonials

This has been a good experience with Hanser Law. My medical bills were expensive after my accident in February. Hansner Law reduced my medical bills down to zero. Everyone in Law Firm had great communication during the pending process. With my first time experiencing anything like this. They taught me how to the process works so now I have the knowledge. They fight hard for the clients.

Vincent W.

Let me preface this by saying, I am not an easy person to work with. That statement is especially true when I am hurting and my family is suffering. The Hasner Law Group put my family and I first. Going through the process for over a year, they were always there to ensure that I had what I needed to take care of my wife and daughter. Whenever I had questions, they answered them in a timely manner. When I had concerns or was uneasy about the process, they were able to ease my mind. Communication is key to any relationship and they made sure I never felt alone. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to my case. God bless you all.

Rees C.

This firm has given me the ability to focus on my healing and recovery. Being referred by another attorney based on his personal experience with Hasner Law firm gave me an immediate sense of their excellent reputation and I must agree. The attorneys and paralegals, and staff are compassionate professionals focused on the care and recovery of their clients.

I feel as if Stephen, Judy, and Melissa are family now. I know and trust they have me and my best interest included first in every step of the process. I couldn’t be in better hands.

How Could Sharing Fault Impact Your Georgia Personal Injury Claim?

Accidents are messy. They’re complicated. Many times, multiple factors (and people) contribute. It’s not unusual for victims injured in accidents to share some of the blame.

Under Georgia’s modified comparative fault rules, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get money if you are partly responsible for an accident. It does mean that you can get compensation as long as you aren’t primarily responsible. You can seek damages from other negligent parties as long as you are allocated no more than 49 percent of the blame for an accident. Once your liability reaches 50 percent, however, your personal injury claim will be barred.

Fault might not bar a financial recovery, but it will impact how much money you can get. Your monetary damages will be reduced by however much fault is allocated to you. If you share 20 percent of the blame for an accident, your damages will be reduced by 20 percent. So, if you sustained $10,000 in damages, you’d be able to recover a maximum of $8,000.

No one will want to accept responsibility and fault for an accident. That’s why it’s critical to have an experienced accident lawyer on your side. At Hasner Law, our skilled Atlanta personal injury attorneys know how to step in and protect you from these types of claims. We’ll work hard to minimize your role in the accident and safeguard your personal injury claim. 

Atlanta, Georgia Accident Statistics

Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. With its rise in popularity, the city’s roads have become much more congested. As a result, accidents are fairly common in the Atlanta metro area.

In Fulton County, the number of car accidents increased from 2017 to 2019, with 43,775 and 60,984 accidents, respectively. In that short period of time, the number of accidents surged by more than 39 percent.

In 2020, the number of accidents dipped slightly. That year, there were 58,581 reported accidents in Atlanta and surrounding towns. However, the crash rate still significantly exceeds what it was just a few years ago. Atlanta is considering the launch of a Vision Zero initiative to make its roads safer for residents, guests, and commuters, alike.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Your lawyer’s compensation will be a percentage of your financial recovery. This is usually anywhere between 20 and 40 percent of your net award (meaning that things like court costs, expert fees, and other expenses necessary to litigate your case are deducted first).

There’s no way to tell you exactly what it will cost to hire an accident attorney. It will depend on the type of case you have, how complicated it is, and how much money you’re ultimately awarded.

At Hasner Law, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our legal fees depend on the outcome of your case. We only get paid if you win – meaning that you get a settlement deal or win a verdict at trial. 

At the end of the day, it is usually much more cost-effective to hire a lawyer to handle your case. Why? You’re much more likely to maximize your financial recovery when an experienced attorney is involved. In fact, hiring a lawyer could be the difference between a substantial award and walking away with nothing at all.

 

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Personal Injury Case?

    A personal injury case is a legal action where one party (the plaintiff) claims to have sustained injuries because of something another party (the defendant) did. A personal injury case can be a claim – like a private process between an insurance company and an accident victim – or a civil lawsuit.

  • Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

    You might have a case if you’ve gotten hurt because someone else was negligent, hurt you intentionally, or is strictly liable for your injuries under Georgia state law.

    Regardless of the reason you’re filing a case, you’ll have to prove:

    • Someone else had a legal obligation to act in a certain way (e.g., drive safely, test products before putting them on the market, comply with workplace safety laws)
    • They failed, and
    • You got hurt and have suffered damages, as a result.

    Ultimately, the only way to know if you have a case is by speaking with an experienced attorney. A lawyer – particularly one who specializes in personal injury law – will be able to listen to your story, consider the facts, and determine what grounds – if any – you have to file a lawsuit.

  • How Much is My Case Worth?

    Every case is different. And that’s a good thing. The value should depend on the specific facts of your case. 

    Factors that are important in the valuation process include:

    • The type of injury you’ve sustained
    • Whether the injury will cause temporary or permanent disability
    • Your out-of-pocket costs
    • Projected future costs related to your recovery
    • If – and how – your injury has affected your ability to go back to work
    • The extent to which you’re dealing with mental anguish and suffering because of the trauma.

    As a general rule, the more serious an injury, the more a related personal injury case is worth.

  • How Long Will My Case Take?

    If you agree to accept a settlement deal, your case could be resolved in a matter of weeks or months. If your case goes to trial, it could be a year or two (or more) until a verdict is reached. 

    It’s important that you don’t get caught up in the timeline. Rushing into a deal or accepting an early offer isn’t always a good thing – especially if your injuries are catastrophic. It might put money in your pocket today, but it could leave you with way less than you deserve (and much less than your case is really worth).

    The best rule of thumb is to wait to resolve your case until you’re fully able to identify all of your damages and assess what they’re worth.

  • Will My Case Go to Trial?

    It could. However, most personal injury cases do not end up in the courtroom. The vast majority reach a settlement before getting to the trial phase. However, there’s no guarantee that your case won’t end up before a judge and jury. That’s why it is important to hire a lawyer with real trial experience. 

    When you hire a litigation attorney, it puts insurance companies on notice. It tells them that you’re not afraid to reject low offers and take your case to a jury. That can be a huge motivator during negotiations and help you get a better deal.

  • What is Negligence?

    Negligence is the cause of action for most (but not all) personal injury cases. It means that someone had a responsibility to act in a certain way, didn’t, and you’ve gotten hurt as a direct result. 

    How do you prove negligence?

    There are four different elements that must be established:

    • Duty (the defendant owed you a duty of care)
    • Breach (the defendant didn’t act reasonably under the circumstances
    • Causation (the defendant’s actions caused you to get hurt), and
    • Damages (you’ve suffered quantifiable or identifiable damages as a result).

    You have the burden of proving that your injuries are a result of someone else’s negligence. This might seem straightforward, but it can actually be tough to do – especially when you’re challenged by the defendant (or their insurer) at every turn.

  • Who Can Be Liable in a Personal Injury Case?

    Under Georgia state law, anyone who directly or indirectly contributes to your injuries can be liable. Depending on the type of case you have, potentially liable parties could include motorists, property owners, business owners, government agencies, employers of negligent parties, product manufacturers, healthcare professionals, hospitals, and more. 

    An attorney will conduct a thorough assessment of your case, investigate the circumstances, and gather evidence to help them identify everyone who had a hand in causing you to get hurt.

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia?

The amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim depends on how you expect to recover compensation. 

Personal Injury Lawsuit:

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is typically two years from the date of your accident. (GA Code § 9-3-33 (2019)).

Government Claim:

It may be possible to recover compensation from a government agency after an accident in Atlanta. However, you’ll have to act quickly. You must give notice within 6 months of your accident.

Workers’ Compensation Claim:

After an accident at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, you must notify your employer within 30 days and file a formal claim within one year of the date of your injury.

There may be situations when you have additional time to file a claim for damages. However, don’t assume that you’ll have extra time. The best thing you can do is call our attorneys immediately after you get hurt to make sure that your case is handled promptly.
