Areas of Expertise

If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence – be it a drunk driver or a careless property owner – Georgia’s personal injury law gives you the right to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income (due to not being able to go to work), and pain and suffering. At T. Madden & Associates, P.C., we handle various personal injury claims to ensure you get legal services tailored to your specific needs.

Car Accidents

Roads in McDonough can be dangerous because of negligent drivers, and car accidents are unfortunately common. Whether you were hit by a distracted driver on I-75 or involved in a fender-bender on Macon Street, we will work to prove the other driver’s negligence and fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

Motorcycle Accidents

The thrill of the open road on a bike can quickly turn into a nightmare when another driver’s carelessness comes into play. We understand the unique risks motorcyclists face; you are more exposed and can be more severely injured in a crash in a motorcycle accident, plus you are often less visible to other drivers. Whatever led to your injuries, we can make sure you don’t have to pay for them out of your pocket for the rest of your life.

Trucking Accidents

The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks can translate to catastrophic injuries, even death, in case of a collision. Dealing with the aftermath can feel like David facing Goliath as you try to reason with trucking companies and their insurers. But you are not alone. Our law firm will thoroughly investigate your case and hold the responsible parties accountable, no matter how powerful they are.

Slip and Fall Accidents

A simple trip to the store or a neighbor’s house should not put you in harm’s way. If you slipped or tripped because the property owner or manager failed to take proper care of their premises, we will work to prove liability and recover compensation for your injuries.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is always painful, but it’s made even more tragic when their death could have been prevented. If you have suffered such a loss because someone else didn’t do their duty, we are here to shoulder some of your burden by filing a wrongful death claim.

Elder Abuse

Our elders have given us so much; they deserve respect, care, and dignity in return. If your loved one has suffered abuse in a nursing home or care facility, we will fight for their rights and hold the abusers accountable for their actions.

Dog Attacks

Dog owners in Georgia are responsible for their pets’ behavior. If you were bitten or attacked by a dog, get in touch with our attorneys to recover medical expenses as well as damages for your traumatic experience.

Negligent Security

You deserve to feel safe no matter where you are. If the security professionals at a shopping mall, apartment complex, or any other property failed in their duty and that resulted in your serious injuries, we can help.

Medical Malpractice

When you trust a healthcare professional with your well-being, you put absolute faith in them. When that trust is broken due to negligence or incompetence, the consequences can be life-altering. Let us uncover the truth and seek justice on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is fault determined in a Georgia personal injury case?

The fault is determined through the legal concept of “negligence”, which means that someone failed to act with reasonable care and caused harm to another person. Your personal injury attorney will gather evidence to support your claim that you were injured because of the actions of the at-fault party; this evidence may include police reports, witness statements, medical records, photos, videos, expert opinions, and more.

What if I am partially at fault for my injury?

Under Georgia’s modified comparative negligence rule, you can still recover damages if you are less than 50% at fault for your injuries. Your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault, though.

What is the average settlement for a car accident in Georgia?

The amount can vary widely depending on the specifics of each case, like how severe are your injuries, their impact on your life, and the extent of the negligence. While it’s difficult to provide an average, settlements can range from thousands to millions of dollars.

What is an example of a pain and suffering settlement?

Pain and suffering is a type of non-economic damage that refers to the physical and emotional distress that you have endured as a result of your injury. This can include things like chronic pain, scarring, disfigurement, depression, anxiety, PTSD, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

For example, if you were in a car crash and suffered severe back pain that affected your ability to work and enjoy life, you could be compensated for the anguish you are now suffering in addition to your medical bills and lost wages.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury?

It depends where (i.e., which state) the accident occurred. In most cases in Georgia, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit for “personal injury” and recover compensation; on the other hand, the statute of limitations for the same is three years from the date of the injury. 

What types of damages can I recover?

You may be able to recover economic damages (like medical expenses and lost wages), non-economic damages (like pain and suffering), and in some cases, punitive damages, which are intended to punish the at-fault party and discourage similar behavior in the future.

Will my case go to trial?

Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. But if a fair settlement cannot be reached, your lawyer may recommend going to trial.

How much is my case worth?

There is no simple formula or calculator that can accurately estimate how much your case is worth. You can get a general idea by factoring in the following elements:

  • The severity and extent of your injuries and how they affect you
  • The amount and type of damages that you have incurred or will incur as a result of your injury
  • The liability and insurance coverage of the other party or parties involved in your accident
  • The quality of your evidence and arguments
  • The skills of your personal injury lawyer

Can I still claim compensation if the accident happened at work?

Yes, if you are injured at work, you may be able to file a Workers’ Compensation Claim. In some cases, you may also be able to file a personal injury claim if your injury was caused by a third party or due to your employer’s gross negligence.

What happens if the person responsible for my injury doesn’t have insurance?

You can still seek compensation from your own insurance company if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. You may also be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party.
