At the Kalka Law Group, we have recovered millions in Georgia car accident settlements or judgements for our clients.

You may have heard about huge Georgia car accident settlements from commercials you’ve seen on TV or on news stories across the state. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, one of the questions you may be asking yourself is, “how much will I get from my Georgia car accident settlement?” The answer to this question depends on many factors, including the type and severity of injuries, medical costs, loss of wages, and third parties liable for the accident.

Typical Settlement Range For Georgia Car Accidents

According to a Martindale-NOLO survey conducted in 2023, the average car accident settlement in the US was $23,900. In Georgia, we’ve found settlement amounts can vary greatly. According to the recent car accident settlement examples listed on this page, the typical Georgia car accident lawsuit settlement is anywhere from $11,000,000 to $645,000. Settlements depend greatly on the unique circumstances of each case, which is why there is no accurate average settlement amount for car accidents in Georgia. Large auto accident settlements happen when the right car accident lawyer is on the case, fighting for the rights of victims.

Our Georgia car accident lawyers can help you get the maximum settlement possible for your case. Our experienced Georgia car accident payout experts know how to negotiate with the insurance company and will be able to gather the evidence you need to prove your case. We will also be able to help you understand your legal rights and options.

Our Car Accident Settlements In Georgia

Rear End Collision

A cement truck driver rear-ended our client, which led to paralysis.

Drunk Driving Accident

Our client was struck by a drunk driver in an automobile accident. It led to Traumatic Brain Injury. Our firm secured a combined settlement for our client against both the drunk driver and the restaurant who served the intoxicated driver.

Charter Bus Accident With Severe Injuries

Our client was traveling through Marietta going southbound on I-75 in the middle lane, when a charter bus failed to see the traffic slowing in front of him, crossed over the far left lanes, and ultimately collided with our client, causing a five-car crash. Due to the accident, our client experienced serious injuries to his neck, back, and ankle, which required cervical and lumbar spine surgical fusions. Since having these procedures, he has not been able to return to work. Through intensive investigations, Attorney Kalka discovered the bus company ignored several previous safety violations, which contributed to the collision. While the bus company and their insurance provider failed to accept fault for the accident, Attorney Kalka fought relentlessly and secured a $2.25 million settlement to cover our client’s medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium for his wife.

A drunk driver, who was operating a company vehicle, crossed the center lane and crashed into our client, resulting in a broken hip and leg.

Man Struck by Vehicle, Both Legs Amputated

Top-rated Atlanta personal injury attorneys, The Kalka Law Group, represented a client who had suffered the loss of both of his legs. The client was an employee of American Disposal Services, and was stopped on 5384 near Austell Road in Austell, GA to load some additional garbage into the truck. The truck’s emergency flashers were on at the time. A driver in a Dodger Caliber was traveling on the same southbound road crashed head-on into the client, and slid for 30 feet on the asphalt before it crashed into the rear of the truck. The force from the impact knocked him into the trash pile inside the truck. The man sustained injuries to his head and torso. Doctors had no choice but to amputate both legs. Thanks to The Kalka Law Group’s aggressive pursuit of the case, the firm successfully recovered $1,000,000.

Illegal U-Turn Causes Groin Injury

Our client was out for a ride on his motorcycle on King Road (northbound) in Roswell, Georgia. The SUV ahead of him made a sudden, illegal U-turn, forcing the motorcyclist to swerve to the left, but was unable to avoid being hit by the SUV. The impact of the crash forced the man’s groin and pelvis to slam into the motorcycle’s fuel tank, which occurred right before he was thrown off of his motorcycle. During this process, the man impaled his groin and perineum on the windshield of the motorcycle. Fortunately, he was able to move out of the road quickly enough to avoid being hit by oncoming traffic.

Client Hit & Pinned by Car

Attorney Kalka represented a client in Atlanta who had been catastrophically injured while installing pine straw on a driveway. The client was working when he was suddenly struck and pinned against his truck by a reversing vehicle coming down the driveway towards him. The vehicle was operated by the owner of the house he was working for. After the incident, the man was unable to walk for weeks on end, due to catastrophic leg injuries and multiple fractures. Performing thorough investigations and preparing detailed case information, Attorney Kalka settled the case for his client at $775,000 in mediation.

What Factors Influence Typical Car Accident Settlement Amounts With Injuries in Georgia?

There are many factors that can impact the amount of a car accident settlement payout in Georgia. Some of the most important factors include:

  • The severity of the injuries: The more severe the injuries, the higher the settlement amount will likely be. This is because more severe injuries will require more extensive medical treatment and may result in lost wages or permanent disability.
  • The amount of property damage: The amount of property damage sustained in the accident will also affect the payout amount. If there is significant property damage, the settlement amount will likely be higher.
  • The fault for the accident: If the injured party is found to be at fault for the accident, the settlement amount will likely be lower. However, if the other driver is found to be at fault, the settlement amount will likely be higher.
  • The insurance coverage of the at-fault driver: The amount of insurance coverage that the at-fault driver has will also affect the settlement payout amount. If the at-fault driver has a high insurance policy, the settlement amount will likely be higher.
  • The experience of the lawyer: The experience of the lawyer representing the injured party can also affect the settlement amount. A lawyer with a good track record of success in car accident cases will be able to negotiate a higher settlement amount.
  • The willingness of the parties to settle: If both parties are willing to settle, the settlement amount will likely be higher than if one party is not willing to settle.
  • The time it takes to settle: The longer it takes to settle, the lower the settlement amount will likely be. This is because the injured party will have to pay for their own medical expenses and other costs in the meantime.

It is important to note that the factors listed above are not exhaustive.
