Personal Injury

If you suffer an injury from an auto collision, slip and fall, dog bite, or another type of accident, your life can be turned upside down. Your work, home life, and social activities can be significantly, adversely affected. If another person is legally at fault for your injuries, Georgia personal injury laws establish rules and a process for recovering compensation from the at-fault party. At L.P.A. Law, injury attorney Luisa Alejos helps accident victims recover the full compensation they deserve under the state legal system.

What To Do After an Accident

If you receive an injury in any type of accident, the top priority always is getting the necessary medical help. Even if you feel like you may be okay, a professional medical evaluation is important. Some types of injuries — including head, neck, and back damage — are not immediately apparent but can be extremely serious, and sometimes even fatal. If you were in an auto accident or received another type of injury, go to the hospital emergency room or see your family doctor right away.

If you think another person may be responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you should talk with an experienced personal injury lawyer after you get the initial medical diagnosis and get started on the treatment and recovery. Timing is important, because evidence and witnesses can be harder to find as time goes by, and there is a limit on how long you have to file a claim. At L.P.A. Law, we do not charge for your initial consultation, so you have no reason to hesitate to call us about your accident and your injuries.

In many cases, a liability insurance company has responsibility for paying a personal injury claim. If an adjuster for the at-fault party’s insurance company contacts you, it is a mistake to talk to the insurer before you talk with a lawyer. Insurance companies are in business to make money. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible — or even to deny your claim completely. Adjusters are trained professionals who are skillful at getting injured victims to make statements that undermine their personal injury legal rights and claim.

Getting legal help as soon as possible — and having your attorney handle communication with the insurance company — is the best strategy for pursuing a personal injury claim. If you do not get legal representation, chances are that you will receive much less than you deserve under Georgia law. In some cases, you may not receive anything at all without a lawyer on your side to aggressively advocate for you.

How L.P.A. Law Helps You

When you have a personal injury claim, complex provisions of Georgia law apply to determining whether you can receive compensation and what losses are compensated. The insurance company has lawyers who advise them about your claim, so you should have a lawyer to represent your interests and pursue your legal right to compensation.

Injury attorney Luisa Alejos protects your interests, carefully investigates the facts and circumstances surrounding your injury claim, explains how the law applies to your case, and works closely with you to develop a strategy for proceeding. In pursuing your claim, she advocates aggressively for you and provides compassionate support every step of the way.

Our goal is to handle the legal and process details of your personal injury claim and accomplish resolution of the claim, while you concentrate on treatment, recovery, and getting your life back to normal. We keep you informed every step of the way and make certain you know what to expect throughout the process. We are always happy to answer questions and address concerns about the law, the process, and your claim.

Personal injury claims arise in many different situations. Auto accidents are one of the most common types of injury claims. At L.P.A. Law, we handle:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Multiple vehicle collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian injuries
  • Bicycle accidents

We also help clients who receive dog bite injuries or injuries on another person’s property, such as a slip and fall or trip and fall, which are also called premises liability claims.

If you receive an injury that may have been caused by someone else, contact us for a free consultation to discuss your case. If you receive an injury at work, we also handle workers’ compensation cases, which are governed by special Georgia laws.
