Accidents happen every day. Innocent people in Georgia end up with injuries that cause them pain, emotional distress, time away from work, and a wide range of other damages. A severe injury can completely turn your world upside down, and even more, moderate damages can cause real hardship in your everyday life.
Personal injury is the body of law that allows accident victims to recover financial compensation for their pain, suffering, and other losses related to the injury.
Under Georgia law, accident victims are entitled to compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence (i.e. careless, unreasonable, or unlawful behavior).
Common examples of accidents include:
- Auto accidents
- Commercial trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Wrongful death
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian injuries
- Hit and run
- Slip and fall
- Injuries causes by defective products/dangerous medications
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Burn injuries
- Dangerous property conditions
- Workplace injuries
- Dog bites & animal attacks
- Any other injury caused by another party’s negligence
Demonstrating liability in these cases isn’t always easy. The defendants on the other side are often represented by insurance companies, which fight hard to pay as little as possible in any given accident claim. They will attempt to reduce your compensation as much as they can, and they might even deny your claim altogether. That’s where we come in.
