The Elements of a Georgia Personal Injury Lawsuit

You may have a personal injury claim in Georgia if a reasonably careful and prudent party most likely would have prevented your accident. In other words, if your injuries would not have occurred but for someone else’s negligence, that person may be financially responsible (liable) for your losses. You can file a personal injury claim as a way to become whole again from a tort, or wrongdoing. It is up to you as the filing party, however, to prove the elements of your case:

  1. Duty of care. An obligation to act with reasonable care.
  2. Breach of duty. An action or omission that violates the duty of care (negligence).
  3. Proximate cause. A provable link between the breach of duty and your injuries.
  4. Damages. Compensable losses suffered because of the defendant’s negligence.

For example, if someone was texting and driving and crashed into you in Decatur, that person has committed a tort for which he or she can be held responsible. Filing a personal injury claim against one or more parties could result in financial compensation for several losses, such as your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
