Auto Accident Settlements

The most important thing about an automobile accident settlement is not just that you get one; it’s that you get the right one. The right one compensates you for all of your harms and losses. In 1891, the Georgia Supreme Court wrote, “Every person is entitled to retain and enjoy each and every power of body and mind with which he or she has been endowed, and no one, without being answerable in damages, can wrongfully deprive another, by a physical injury, of any such power or faculty, or materially impair the same.” At Perkins Law Firm we know you. We understand all the ways your personal injury impacts you and what it will take to get you the compensation you deserve. Learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Any case that involves you being injured due to the fault (negligence) of someone else. These cases include, among others, car wrecks, slip and falls, dog bites, tractor trailer wrecks and faulty (defective) products. If you aren’t sure if your case is a personal injury case, contact us and we’ll tell you. It costs you nothing to inquire.

  • No, lawyers cannot guarantee results. We do have many years of experience handling injury cases and, once we have the evidence necessary to value your case, we will tell you our opinion about its value. We will answer any questions you have and tell you how we arrived at that value. We always remember that it is your case, not ours, and we want you to be informed.

  • Contrary to what you hear on television and read in the newspapers about our courts being clogged with personal injury suits, most cases settle. We make a good faith effort to settle cases, but if the other side isn’t willing to pay a fair amount on your claim, we will file suit. Even after suit is filed, most cases still settle. If your case has to be tried, we will work with you to make sure you are prepared for that process.

  • Because every case is different, it’s impossible to accurately answer that question up front. We are very thorough in how we handle cases, because you only get one recovery. If your case settles too quickly, you may discover you have additional or more severe problems than you thought.  Once you have already settled, you cannot go back for more. We make every effort to handle your case as quickly as we can without jeopardizing your recovery.

  • Often, the answer is: “No”. From a legal perspective, an accident with a commercial truck can be far more serious and complicated than an accident with a personal passenger car. There are major differences in how these cases are handled so it is important that you retain an attorney who has experience with accidents of this nature. Many trucking firms and insurance companies investigate these accidents quickly to determine any facts which may limit their liability. Time is usually important, as individuals involved in commercial truck accidents may be at a disadvantage if they are unable to conduct an accident investigation soon after the accident occurs. It is in your best interest to call a legal specialist quickly.

  • Most personal injury cases have a two year statute of limitations; however, there are exceptions. Once your statute of limitations has run, you lose the right to pursue your case. Because this is such an important issue, you need to talk to an attorney to determine the statute of limitations that applies to your particular circumstances.
