Determining Fault For an Accident

Most personal injuries are caused by accidents, meaning that defendants in personal injury cases usually did not intend to cause any harm. Regardless, those who cause an accident can be held liable in court for their carelessness or recklessness if that behavior directly causes someone else to get hurt.

Many personal injury cases use the legal framework of negligence to seek compensation. Someone may be considered legally negligent if they had a duty of care to protect the wellbeing of the plaintiff, subsequently failed to fulfill that duty, and caused the plaintiff to suffer compensable damages as a proximate—or direct—result.

The Potential Impact of Comparative Fault

The plaintiff bears the burden of proof in a personal injury case, so in order to recover compensation on a plaintiff’s behalf, a local personal injury attorney in Atlanta and Alpharetta must prove based on a preponderance of available evidence that the defendant’s actions were the direct cause of the accident in question. However, a defendant may argue that a plaintiff’s own carelessness contributed to the incident, meaning that they are partially at fault for their ensuing damages.

According to Official Code of Georgia §51-12-33, civil courts have the authority to evaluate the actions of both the plaintiff and the defendant and assign each party a percentage of fault for an accident. An injured plaintiff can still recover at least some compensation as long as they are less than 50 percent at fault, although their final damage award would be reduced proportionately by their percentage of fault. However, if a plaintiff is found to be more than 50 percent at fault for their accident, they may be ineligible to recover any compensation for injuries stemming from that incident.

FREE CASE EVALUATION

The Statute Of Limitations To File A Claim

The State of Georgia enforces a statutory filing deadline that, if not obeyed, may result in a case being time-barred and a plaintiff being ineligible to recover compensation for that particular accident.

Under O.C.G.A. §9-3-33, the filing deadline for most civil claims in Georgia is two years following the date on which the plaintiff became injured. There may be exceptions to this deadline in certain circumstances, though, so it is always worth talking to a personal injury lawyer in Alpharetta about the options available for a particular case.
