Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal injury cases typically involve physical or emotional harm caused by negligence. For example, if a distracted driver hits a pedestrian, the pedestrian can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver to receive compensation for the costs associated with their injuries.
The principle behind these claims is that a person should not have to pay for injuries that were caused by someone else’s carelessness or mistakes. Personal injury claims, which include several different types of claims, help the injured person by offering payment for medical bills, property damages, lost wages, lost work capacity, pain and suffering.
At the Dove Law Firm, we represent clients in personal injury claims.
We know that these claims can make an incredible difference in the lives of our clients. Without the ability to file a claim, a victim might be overcome by the financial impact that follows a serious injury. We dedicate all our resources to getting clients the payment they deserve.
Injuries in Vehicle Accidents
Injuries are suffered in a variety of settings, including vehicle accidents, hospitals and workplaces. At the Dove Law Firm, our personal injury practice is focused primarily on injuries suffered in vehicle crashes. These crashes may involve:
- Distracted Driving
- Drunk Driving
- Speeding or Reckless Driving
- Fatigued or Drowsy Driving
Vehicle crashes also come in many forms. Rear-end collisions, front-end collisions, side-impact or T-bone collisions, and rollovers can all result in serious, debilitating injuries. These crashes can occur on major roads like interstates or smaller rural roads. There are many different variables that make up each accident, and it is often true that no two cases are the same.

When a Personal Injury Leads to Death
When someone suffers a fatal injury, that victim’s family faces several challenges. If the deceased was a primary earner, survivors will likely encounter financial hardship that makes it difficult to pay bills and generate future income. Their loss also comes with several other costs related to the fatal injury. Families might be forced to pay large medical bills or end-of-life costs, like burial and funeral expenses.
In these cases, grieving family members can seek justice through wrongful death claims.
Wrongful death claims offer families compensation to help them cope with the challenges they face in the wake of a family member’s passing. It might not always be clear to a grieving family who is responsible for their loss or how they should proceed with a wrongful death claim, in which case an attorney can prove to be an asset.
The Role of a Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury claims can often be complex, and they require the skill of an experienced, knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Attorneys make the process much easier for their clients, handling the complicated aspects of a claim so their client can focus on the task of recovery. An attorney will investigate the circumstances surrounding the case, determine how much a claim is worth and guide their clients through the process.
After suffering a serious personal injury, clients often wonder how much their claim is worth or how long their case will take. For an attorney to provide answers to these questions, he or she will need to know the specifics of your case. Only after an evaluation can an attorney make an informed decision about the worth of a claim and the chances of a case being successful.
It is Best to Act Quickly
Building a personal injury case can take time, and it is always in the best interest of a victim to contact their attorney as soon as possible. The law also sets forth a window of time in which a victim must file a claim. This is referred to as the statute of limitations.
In Georgia, the statute of limitations on a personal injury case is two years from the time of the injury.
