A recent case out of the Georgia Court of Appeals Second Division illustrates why the details and facts involved in a personal injury case are so important to the outcome. In any instance in which a person is injured, and even badly, recovery is nearly impossible unless all of the exact and accurate facts are produced in the course of trying to recover. Depending on the case, these essential facts can be locations, dates, people involved, and more.
In this case, Williams v. City of Atlanta, the complaint was straightforward and should have led to a recovery for the victim. The victim in this case was walking down the road in Atlanta when he stepped in a uncovered water meter hole. He was injured as a result, and brought suit against the city after contacting an Atlanta personal injury lawyer. However, personal injury cases operate differently when the city is involved.
