Personal Injury FAQs

  • What Are Economic and Non-Economic Damages?
    • Economic damages (also called “special damages”) are financial losses related to tangible harm and expenses. Typically, any cost that can be tracked on a bill, receipt, paystub, etc. can be a type of economic damage.
    • Non-economic damages (also called “general damages”) are losses related to intangible harm and losses that aren’t easily quantified. Pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and shortened life expectancy after a catastrophic injury are among the most common non-economic damage types.

    Your injury claim will likely include both types of damages when calculating and pursuing compensation. Rest assured, The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch has the utmost skill in recognizing and utilizing all damages available to maximize your case.

  • How Long Do I Have to File an Injury Claim in Georgia?

    When it comes to filing a personal injury claim in Georgia, time is of the essence. In most circumstances, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit or have your claim resolved. This is known as the statute of limitations. However, it is very important to obtain our services as soon as possible after an incident due to evidence that could be lost, witnesses that need to be identified, and countless other items that can only occur immediately after a crash or an incident causing serious injury.

    If you do not file a lawsuit within two years from the date of the incident then your claim will be forever barred from recovery.

    Typically, we ask that our clients bring any and all important documentation and details about their accidents. For example, police reports and medical records can provide great summaries of what happened and why – which our legal team can review in a consultation. Also, pictures are a very important element of our approach as we lay the foundation of your case – so if you have them, please bring them.

  • What Are Punitive Damages?
    Punitive damages are separate from economic and non-economic damages. While those two damage types are meant to compensate the plaintiff for losses, punitive damages are used to penalize the conduct of the defendant(s). Punitive damages are rarely approved by courts, but when it is, the defendant has usually been accused of egregious negligence or criminal wrongdoing. Your case might not include punitive damages due to the rare circumstances in which they are available; however, the skilled attorneys at The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch will be able to explain whether these are available for your case or not.
  • What Injuries Are Hard to Prove in a Personal Injury Case?
    External physical injuries like broken bones and lacerations can be simpler to prove than internal injuries like concussions and certain organ injuries.
