Two Steps to Take if You’ve Been Injured in Cumming

Being injured is painful, stressful, and can take you out of work for days, weeks or longer.  In many cases you may find yourself worrying whether you will ever fully recover your health and the full range of abilities you had before your accident.  But you don’t have to face this uncertainty alone—and you shouldn’t be bankrupted by it.  To get the full settlement you deserve, there are just two steps you have to take:

  1. Contact a reputable Cumming personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies come armed with a team of attorneys.  You should have a lawyer of your own to level the field.  A lawyer can help you present the strongest claim possible and force the insurer to negotiate.  
  2. Don’t sign ANYTHING from an insurance company until you’ve spoken to a lawyer. Shortly after your accident the insurance company will offer you quick, easy money.  This money is tempting because you already have bills to pay.  But to take the money you have to sign away your rights in the future—and the money won’t seem so easy if it turns out not to pay for all of your medical costs.  Talk to a lawyer first.  

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

The best way is to get an opinion from a professional.  Many people don’t realize that even injuries that seem like total accidents may count for an insurance claim.  In other cases, people blame themselves for something that was actually caused through the fault of another.   If someone could have prevented the accident by being more careful, and they did not, then they are considered “negligent” under the law.  That means that their insurance is liable for the cost of your injury.  

Some of the most common types of accidents that count for personal injury claims include:

These are not the only kinds of injuries that qualify for a financial recovery.  Any kind of injury may count in the right circumstances.  

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer in Cumming?

You should pay nothing to speak to a lawyer, and your case should never cost you a cent out of pocket.  The best personal injury law firms take their fee as a percentage of the amount they win for you.  That means that if they cannot win you money, you owe them nothing.  This is a way of ensuring that you have no risk in hiring a lawyer.  

We have seen some law firms who insist on charging upfront fees.  This means they get paid whether they win or lose.  We don’t believe this is in the best interest of the client.  At John Foy & Associates, our payment structure is simple:

We believe that this is the fairest and lowest-risk way for you to get the professional legal help you need.

Will I have to go to court?

No, most personal injury cases do not involve a trial, and you will not have to appear at court.  When we take on your case we start by gathering information.  We put together a well-documented case showing exactly what happened, and we find out the complete cost of your accident.  We back our case to the insurance company with cold hard proof.  In many cases, they can see that we would win if we went to trial, and they will just pay the money now—with no court date needed.

Sometimes the insurance company will hold out.  In those cases we may advise pursuing the matter all the way to the local courts.  This is your decision to make, not ours.  If we do go to court, we will handle everything and make sure you face as little stress as possible.  

How long can I wait to file an injury claim in Cumming?

There are very strict deadlines for all personal injury cases.  In Cumming, these are set forth by the Georgia state statutes of limitations and federal law.  The exact deadline varies based on the nature of the accident and the circumstances surrounding it.  

If the deadline passes, you could lose your financial settlement forever.  It is imperative that you speak to a lawyer immediately.
