What Is Personal Injury Litigation?
Personal injury litigation is a type of civil litigation (i.e., non-criminal case) in which one or more parties (known as the “plaintiff”) brings a claim against another (known as the “defendant”) for damages resulting from a bodily injury. Essentially, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant acted negligently or wrongfully in some way, and this is what caused the plaintiff’s injury and resulting damages.
Personal injury cases often arise from the following incidents:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Large truck and commercial vehicle collisions
- Unsafe property conditions
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
In addition to personal injury claims, such incidents can also give rise to wrongful death lawsuits when a victim passes away due to the defendant’s negligence and/or unlawful behavior.
At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we represent plaintiffs in all types of personal injury and wrongful death matters. Although many cases are settled outside of the courtroom, we have what it takes to effectively advocate for you at trial. Our firm has a reputation for aggressively pursuing these cases, and we have successfully tried thousands of lawsuits on behalf of our clients.
What Types of Damages Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Case?
When you are injured or lose a loved one as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct, you are likely to suffer significant physical, emotional, and financial hardships. In severe cases, these challenges can even be life-changing.
The purpose of filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit is to recover compensation for the losses you experience as a result of someone else’s negligent or unlawful conduct. These losses are known as “damages” and may be either economic or non-economic in nature.
Depending on the specific details of your case, you may be entitled to the following damages in your personal injury or wrongful death case:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care costs
- Funeral/burial costs
- Lost income, wages, and employment benefits
- Loss of earning ability
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
- Anguish and emotional distress
- Loss of love, support, counsel, consortium, and care
- Loss of inheritance
Sometimes, it may also be possible to recover punitive damages. Also known as “exemplary” damages, punitive damages are awarded not to compensate victims for specific economic and non-economic losses but, rather, as a means of punishing the defendant for egregious or gross negligence, willful or wanton misconduct, or intentional infliction of injury or death.
At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we seek maximum compensation for our clients. Our Dalton personal injury lawyers often work alongside accident reconstructionists, economists, medical professionals, and other experts to obtain a comprehensive picture of how your life has been changed—and who is responsible. We use powerful evidence to present our clients’ cases to the judge and/or jury whenever necessary.

Under the state’s personal injury statute of limitations, you only have two years to file your lawsuit. There are very few exceptions to this rule; in most cases, if you fail to bring your claim in court before the two-year statute of limitations expires, you will lose your right to sue the liable party for damages.
We strongly encourage you to reach out to our firm as soon as possible. The sooner you discuss your case with our Dalton personal injury attorneys, the sooner they can begin investigating your claim, gathering evidence on your behalf, and communicating with the insurance company or other liable party.
