Types of Personal Injury Claims that Can Arise in Northwest Atlanta
Personal injury situations are accidents that hurt one person but were caused by the negligence or poor conduct of someone else. A personal injury lawsuit is a formal demand for compensation that is filed by the victim against the wrongdoer or negligent party.
These lawsuits stem from a wide variety of situations, including:
- Car and motorcycle accidents, especially those that happen on high-speed roads like I-20, I-85, and I-75
- Truck accidents, which frequently happen on those same interstates but involve different legal issues, including employer liability for the crash and the resulting injuries
- Products liability lawsuits, where a defective product breaks and hurts the person using it or innocent bystanders
- Slip and fall injuries, also known as premises liability lawsuits, which can happen at the Georgia Aquarium, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, or any of the other stores or businesses in Northwest Atlanta
Courthouses in Northwest Atlanta
Victims who have been hurt by someone else in Northwest Atlanta and who want to recover the compensation that they deserve and that they need to get back on their feet will file a lawsuit in either state or federal court. Most personal injury claims go before state court. If the lawsuit involves a violation of federal law or more than $75,000 and an out-of-state defendant, though, it can be filed in federal court.
Those filed in state court would most often be heard by the Fulton County Superior Court or the Fulton County State Court. These courts are located at 136 Pryor Street, and 185 Central Avenue SW, in downtown Atlanta.
If filed in federal court, personal injury lawsuits would be heard by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia at 75 Ted Turner Drive.
