Frequently Asked Questions

These are general answers to common questions about personal injury cases. Each case is unique, so it's essential to consult with The Ellis Firm to receive personalized guidance based on your unique circumstances. Please reach us at if you cannot find an answer to your question.

  • What type of accidents or injuries fall under personal injury?
    Personal injury cases can arise from various incidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, defective products, dog bites, and more. If you have suffered injuries due to someone else's negligence, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim.
  • How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
    The timeframe for filing a personal injury claim is typically governed by the statute of limitations, which varies depending on the jurisdiction and the type of claim. In Georgia, for example, the general statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. However, there can be exceptions and shorter deadlines for specific circumstances. It's crucial to consult with The Ellis Firm promptly to understand and comply with the applicable time limits.
  • How is compensation determined in a personal injury case?
    The amount of compensation in a personal injury case depends on various factors, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the impact on your quality of life. At the Ellis Firm, we will work with you to assess the damages you have incurred and seek the maximum compensation for your injury.
  • What if the at-fault party doesn't have insurance or is uninsured?
    If the at-fault party does not have insurance or has insufficient coverage to compensate you adequately, there may be alternative avenues for pursuing compensation. These may include seeking compensation from your own insurance policies, such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, or exploring other potential liable parties who may share responsibility for the incident.
  • How long does it take to resolve a personal injury case?
    The time it takes to resolve a personal injury case can vary significantly depending on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the severity of injuries, the willingness of the parties to negotiate, and the court's caseload. Some cases can be settled through negotiations outside of court, while others may require litigation, which can prolong the process. Your attorney can provide a more accurate estimate based on the specific details of your case.
