Risk is part of daily life. Every action we do, every place we go, and every moment we partake in comes with some inherent degree of risk to our personal safety.
We each do our part to improve our odds of staying safe while we go about our lives, of course. Still, accidents do happen, and when they do, not everyone is so lucky that they get away unscathed.
Accidents, no matter how minor they are, always take a toll on their victims no matter how minor they are. For instance, a minor slip-and-fall in a restaurant or diner can slow down your daily pace with a sprain, costing you the precious time you could spend on tasks.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, accidents can be lethal and send entire communities into turmoil, with survivors racking up five or even six-digit figures in medical expenses and property damage and losing even more in time and wages.
And that’s not considering the pain and suffering as well as any long-term effects of injuries sustained. Sometimes, injuries can be so severe they leave permanent physical changes to victims’ bodies.
When you’re hurt in an accident and need a path to recovery, you’re going to need resources. Unfortunately, the people who owe you the resources you need to recover might not always be keen to provide you with them.
That is where a personal injury lawyer comes in.
What Does a Fulton County Personal Injury Attorney Do?
A personal injury lawyer is a legal professional whose practice focuses on helping people recover from injuries, usually – but not always – caused by the negligence of another party. Their goal is to help clients claim fair compensation for any damages they suffered in the accident.
Here are some ways a personal injury lawyer can assist you:
Legal Advice and Guidance: From consultation to confronting the at-fault party to taking a case to court, your lawyer can recommend the best courses of action and the ideal ways to do them.
Case Building: A personal injury lawyer knows how to properly evaluate the damages you suffered in an accident. They will run an investigation and include as much evidence as possible in order to come up with an accurate value you are entitled to, then build a case defending to the insurance company that you deserve that value.
Legal Representation: When you work with a lawyer, they will work with your interests in mind, drafting legal documents for you and, if necessary, going through the entire process in your stead should you be unable to do so.
Expert Negotiation: Your attorney will negotiate with insurance representatives and opposing parties to get you a fair settlement covering all damages sustained in the accident.
Personal injury lawyers are able to greatly influence the outcome of claims and settlements. One survey shows that claimants who work on their own manage to secure some form of payout a little over half the time, while those who work with a lawyer do so nine out of ten times.

What Cases Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?
Generally speaking, any case where a client has been hurt by a third party and needs compensation is a case a personal injury lawyer can assist in. The following are fourteen practice areas The CEO Lawyer specializes in.
Bicycle Accidents – Whether it’s a collision with a vehicle, a fall, or a collision with a non-motorist or obstacle, bicycle accidents can lead to anything ranging from shallow scrapes to broken bones.
Car Accidents – These are possibly the most common cases personal injury lawyers handle. Car accidents occur when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, a non-motorist, or some other object outside of the car.
Drunk Driving Accidents – DUI accidents are a problem in Georgia, as in every other state. They occur when a person operates a vehicle while under the effects of alcohol (or any other substance, according to Georgia law) and account for around 30% of all traffic-related deaths in the US.
Hit and Run Accidents – This is when an at-fault driver leaves the scene after a collision. Hit-and-run accidents can occur on the road when a car collides with a person or other vehicle or in parking lots when a driver damages a parked car.
Rideshare Accidents – These are accidents involving rideshare services, such as Uber, where passengers, pedestrians, or other drivers may get hurt due to the recklessness or negligence of one or more parties involved.
Defective Product Injuries – When a product is not reasonably safe for its intended use, any number and nearly any kind of injuries can result. Defective products can range from necessary medical devices to safety equipment such as airbags and even public technology such as pedestrian lights.
Dog Bites and Other Animal Attacks – The CDC estimates around 4.5 million people in the US suffer dog bites each year. Even minor bites can be serious, as they can easily transmit infection, most notoriously, rabies.
Medical Malpractice – The irony of injuries sustained in a medical malpractice case is that after spending money on a medical procedure that accidentally harms them, a victim will often have to spend even more on another procedure to undo the damage. A personal injury lawyer’s services are a means of both recovering the expenses spent and holding medical practitioners responsible for their actions.
Motorcycle Accidents – Closely related to car accidents but with the potential for more serious injuries, motorcycle accident cases have spiked throughout the 2020s, especially in the urbanized areas of Fulton County.
Pedestrian Accidents – When a pedestrian is involved in a collision with a vehicle, they are almost always going to receive an injury. A majority of the time, the driver of the vehicle will be at fault, and it will be up to the personal injury lawyer to prove this in order to maximize the victim’s claim.
Slip and Fall Accidents – These usually occur in areas with hazardous conditions, such as wet floors or poor lighting. While they may initially present themselves as though no one is at fault, personal injury lawyers can, through investigation, determine whether a person or body was in charge of keeping the area reasonably safe, thus opening a door for your compensation.
Truck Accidents – Accidents involving large trucks are almost guaranteed to result in severe injuries and even fatalities thanks to the massive size and weight trucks inherently possess. They also typically involve larger damage claims that insurers tend to be unwilling to part with, meaning personal injury lawyers are sure to be necessary.
Worker’s Compensation Claims – Employees injured in workplace settings can usually file worker’s compensation claims to cover their damages. Personal injury lawyers come into play in these situations to ensure that these claims are properly valued, and the victims are adequately compensated.
Wrongful Death Cases – These are legal cases filed on behalf of a person who passed away due to the negligent actions (or inaction) of another party. This kind of case is filed with the intent of seeking compensation for surviving family members for their loss.
How Much Does Working With a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
Plenty of insurance claimants choose to pursue compensation on their own rather than work with a lawyer because they are unsure of whether they can afford to pay one. After all, legal work has a reputation for being costly, and additional expenses can be terrifying when you already have medical bills and repairs to pay for.
The good news for hesitant clients is that most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. What this means is that they get paid an agreed-upon percentage of what you get when you win your case.
Contingency fees allow clients to afford legal representation even if they do not have any money upfront. This can mean a larger claim means you pay your lawyer a larger sum, but a lawyer can increase the amount you get by up to four times, even after deducting the attorney’s fees.
The decision to work with a lawyer is a balancing act between your lawyer’s fees and the amount you stand to gain from your claim. If you only need a small amount of money to cover damages and your insurance policy clearly covers it, you may not need to hire a lawyer.
On the other hand, if you need to recover several hundred thousand dollars from an insurance claim or at-fault party, the other side will likely not want to shell out the full amount without a fight. That is when you will most probably benefit from a personal injury lawyer’s services.

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
