Gainesville, GA Personal Injury Attorney

Fierce and Compassionate Gainesville Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers with Real Trial Experience

Davies Hothem Injury Law works compassionately to obtain the highest recovery possible for those who have suffered devastating injuries and loss through no fault of their own. Unlike most big advertising personal injury firms, Kristy, Jennifer and Dustin have spent their entire careers in a courtroom. Since 2010, Kristy, Jennifer, and Dustin have tried over 100 trials and obtained over 150 million in verdicts and settlements for their clients. Davies Hothem was founded in 2021 to provide representation that cannot be matched by billboard and big box firms with no trial experience and a compulsion to settle cases without fighting for the maximum recovery.

We believe steadfastly in the civil justice system and the constitutional right to hold individuals and corporations accountable for injuries they cause. Through hard work and aggressive representation, we will do everything possible to facilitate the physical, emotional, and financial recovery needed following an injury or death of a loved one.

THE DOMINO EFFECT AFTER SUFFERING AN INJURY

Until you have experienced it, most people do not realize the chain of events set in motion after an injury. While you are in pain and unable to work, medical bills and financial stress will mount. At Davies Hothem, we strive to ensure you are fully recovered from your injuries and compensated for everything you have been through. In the tragic case where a full physical recovery is not possible due to a catastrophic or permanent injury, our goal is to obtain a recovery that will be a source of financial provision for the remainder of the victim’s life.

WHAT DAMAGES AM I ENTITLED TO?

When someone has suffered an injury due to a negligent or reckless act of another, they are entitled to past, present and future medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Negligence occurs when careless conduct causes injury to another. In instances where conduct exceeds negligence and is willful or wanton, punitive damages may be imposed to punish and deter the defendant from engaging in such future conduct.

RECOVERING FOR CLIENTS AND RESTORING OUR COMMUNITY

At Davies Hothem Injury Law, we strive to bring hope and healing not only to our injured clients, but to women, children, and veterans in our community. Kristy, Jennifer, and Dustin believe wholeheartedly that the ability to practice law is a privilege, and with that privilege comes the responsibility to support others in need.

For this greater purpose, we strongly support local non-profits, including Gateway Domestic Violence Center, Edmonson Telford Child Advocacy Center, Women Source, Family Promise, We Care, and Safe Kids Coalition.

Free Consultations & Thorough Investigations

Gainesville Injury Attorneys

After your free consultation, we will work immediately to preserve and obtain critical evidence. This includes sending experts, such as an accident reconstructionist or other engineer to inspect the scene and/or vehicle. There are many records that need to be obtained before they are lost, including 911 recordings, police dashcam and bodycam, and surrounding store or home security surveillance. Many victims are unaware that their injuries were caused by a defective product. Preservation of the product, inspections, and expert consultations are necessary in any catastrophic injury case to determine if there is a potentially defective product claim (examples include, but are not limited to, failure of safety restraint systems such as airbags and seatbelts, tire blowouts, SUV rollover roof crush, seatback defects, door latch defects, and brake failures). Vehicles must be preserved quickly and before they are sold by the insurance company and destroyed in a salvage yard.

WHO IS AT FAULT IN PERSONAL INJURY CASES?

While most injuries are the result of an accident, many are the result of negligent conduct. This means the at-fault party failed to exercise reasonable care and that failure caused or contributed to the victim’s injuries. The purpose of a personal injury claim is to hold that at-fault party accountable for damages the victim suffers. Another important purpose is to deter such conduct from injuring someone in the future.

DEADLINE TO FILE A PERSONAL INJURY OR WRONGFUL DEATH CASE

The state of Georgia has a legislative deadline that, if not met, will result in a lawsuit being time-barred and a complainant losing their right to compensation for the specific accident. The final deadline for most civil cases in Georgia is two years after the plaintiff was injured, according to O.C.G.A. 9-3-33. However, there are some rare exceptions to this deadline, so it’s always worth speaking with our Gainesville personal injury and wrongful death lawyers in Georgia about your options.

“Davies Hothem Injury Law will always provide free consultations & thorough investigations. The sooner we can get to work investigating an accident, the more evidence we have to obtain the best results for your case.”
