Georgia Personal Injury FAQ

A serious injury can uproot your life completely, affecting you and your family for years to come. At Jody D. Peterman, LLC, we have handled personal injury cases for many years. We understand what you are going through. We are very selective about the cases we take, as we are committed to helping clients who have suffered the most serious injuries due to the negligence of others. Following are some of the most frequently asked questions that we hear:

What types of personal injury cases do you handle?

We represent victims of catastrophic injuries, and we represent families who have lost loved ones due to wrongful death. More specifically, we represent victims of car accidents, trucking accidents, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and other types of injuries that can permanently alter a person’s life.

What types of damages may be available in a personal injury lawsuit?

The types of compensation that may be available will depend on the facts of your case. Following are some common types of damages in personal injury cases:

  • Compensatory damages: This type of compensation can cover medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity and other economic losses.
  • Noneconomic damages: This type of compensation can cover emotional distress, psychological trauma, and pain and suffering.
  • Punitive damages: This type of compensation can be awarded when the negligent party’s actions are particularly reckless or nefarious.

We can determine the types of damages that may be available in your case. Call us at 229-588-2608 today to set up a consultation.

Does my personal injury lawsuit have to go to trial?

Most personal injury lawsuits are resolved in the pre-trial phase. However, at Jody D. Peterman, LLC, we prepare every case for a trial. That is the best way to ensure that you are in the strongest possible position to receive the maximum available compensation, even if your case is ultimately resolved in the pre-trial phase.
