Is GA a Modified Comparative Negligence State?
Despite popular misconceptions, it can be difficult to establish fault in pedestrian accident cases. Georgia is a modified comparative negligent state, which means that the plaintiff’s percentage at fault is taken into account when determining awards of damaged. An injured individual can only receive compensation if they are 49% or less at fault. The defendant’s insurer may try to eliminate the injured individual’s right to damages by proving they are 50% or more at fault for the incident.
To maximize your claim, you’re going to need the services of an experienced and qualified legal professional. Schedule a consultation with a Savannah pedestrian accident lawyer at Tate Law Group, LLC today.
Establishing Negligence in a Pedestrian Accident Case
A serious motor vehicle collision can result in catastrophic injuries that necessitate ongoing and costly medical services. An accident survivor’s only recourse is to pursue damages that compensate their injury-related expenses. The statute of limitations in Georgia states that a plaintiff has 2 years to file a personal injury claim. However, you must seek legal guidance before the defendant’s insurer has a chance to manipulate the narrative of the accident and trick you into making a costly mistake, such as accepting a low settlement offer.
A reasonable settlement or verdict can encompass the following damages and more:
- Ongoing medical expenses
- Physical and occupational therapy costs
- Loss of wages and/or earning capacity
- Long-term disability
- Emotional and mental trauma
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term care expenses
- Specialized equipment
- Housing modifications
- Wrongful death
