What is the Statute of Limitations in Georgia?

Accident victims will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation. If you miss this important deadline, your case may be barred from court.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

At the Hines Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs and you will owe nothing if your case is not successful. If you win your case, your personal injury lawyer will subtract a small percentage of your settlement or award to cover the cost of legal fees. With this no-risk payment arrangement, accident victims can obtain experienced legal representation as soon as possible after an accident.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

The damages you’re entitled to will depend on many variables, such as:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • Insurance policy limits
  • Your prognosis
  • Whether multiple parties were at fault
  • Your level of fault
  • How much time you missed at work
  • How the accident has impacted your life
And many other factors.

At the Hines Law Firm, our legal team will investigate your accident and may consult with experts to determine which damages you should pursue.

In some cases, accident victims can pursue the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical care costs
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of quality of life 
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Permanent disability
