How Much Is My Georgia Premises Liability Case Worth?
In Georgia, if you are injured on a property because of the property owner’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim against the owner. In Georgia, when a property owner’s negligence causes injury, the property owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries and damages.
How Much Is Your Georgia Premises Liability Claim Worth?
Every premises liability case is unique. Therefore, there is no average for premises liability settlements in Georgia. There is no way to tell how much you can expect to recover in your premises liability case without first understanding the details of your case. Generally, how much your Georgia premises liability case is worth depends on your case’s specifics.
Suppose you know someone who filed a premises liability case and recovered tens of thousands of dollars. Does this mean you can also expect to recover tens of thousands of dollars? Not necessarily. Every detail of your case can affect the outcome. Even the slightest difference between your case and your friend’s case can greatly reduce or increase your settlement amount. Therefore, instead of assuming the value of your premises liability case based on what someone else’s case was worth, you should allow an attorney to help you evaluate the details of your case and determine how much your case might be worth.
Factors That Affect the Value of a Georgia Premises Liability Case
The following are some of the factors that might affect the value of your Georgia premises liability case.
The Types of Damages You Can Recover
First, the amount of money you recover in your premises liability claim is dependent on the types of damages for which you are eligible. In a Georgia premises liability claim, you may be entitled to recover compensation for, among others, medical expenses (both past and future), lost wages, and pain and suffering. All these are known as compensatory damages. Depending on your case’s specifics, you may also be eligible to recover punitive damages.
The Severity of Your Injuries
Generally, the more severe your injuries, the more you can expect to recover in your Georgia premises liability case. Permanent injuries will demand a higher recovery that temporary injuries.
Degree of Fault
Lastly, if you are partly to blame for your injuries, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
