In Georgia, as in other states, a car accident law firm will need to establish another driver's negligence after suffering injuries from the accident. Proving negligence after a collision requires you to show that another driver failed to follow the rules of the road or other laws and that this failure caused the accident. Often, insurers will try to find ways to pin the blame for a car crash on you, making it critical that you speak to your own personal injury attorney before answering their questions. If the police report deems you are 50% or more at fault, you will be barred from recovering damages. However, if you are successful in establishing the defendant’s liability, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical costs, lost income and earning capacity, property damage, and general damages for pain and suffering. A professional car accident lawyer can make a huge difference in a victim’s ability to move forward from car accident injuries. If you are looking for an Alpharetta car accident attorney, or need help anywhere in North Georgia, please contact us today. We have motorcycle law offices in Canton, Atlanta, Woodstock, Dawsonville, Suwanee, and Alpharetta. But if you can't come to us, we do consultations over the phone, and via Zoom!
Commercial trucks like tractor-trailers and big rigs are large and heavy. When they collide with a smaller vehicle or pedestrian, the truck driver may sustain hardly any damage, while the other person may be seriously injured or killed. To recover damages in a truck accident case, you will need a truck accident lawyer who can look closely at what happened and develop a strategy to ensure that you pursue all of the responsible parties. Trucking accident cases are not handled the same as a typical car accident case, and it takes the right lawyer to ensure you receive the maximum financial compensation. Sometimes the negligence of truck drivers and the trucking companies that employ them consist of violations of the strict government regulations that trucking companies must follow regarding background checks, drug and alcohol testing, hours of service, and driver training, among many other requirements. If you are looking for an Alpharetta truck accident attorney, or need help anywhere in North Georgia, please contact us today.
Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries to a motorcyclist, changing their life forever. Damages that you may be able to recover if you can show that another driver was at fault include medical expenses, physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering. As with other motor vehicle accidents, insurers for a driver often look for ways to blame the victim and reduce the damages by finding evidence of comparative negligence. However, Alpharetta personal injury attorney Casey W. Stevens is an expert motorcycle accident attorney and can thoroughly investigate the case from a victim’s perspective and make sure that crucial evidence is preserved. He also can make sure that procedural deadlines like the statute of limitations are met so that a defendant cannot evade liability on technical grounds.
In Georgia, all property owners and occupiers are required to exercise ordinary care to keep their property safe for invitees and guests. However, many victims are seriously injured on commercial property because of such dangerous conditions as liquid on the floor, collapsing balconies, defective stairs, inadequate lighting, unsecured swimming pools, and insufficient security. Generally, property owners should inspect their property regularly for dangerous conditions and either provide warnings to guests or make repairs. Property owners that know or should know of dangerous conditions that injure an invited customer or guest may be held accountable for damages. If you are in need of an Alpharetta unsafe property attorney or need help anywhere in North Georgia, give us a call for a free consultation.
When a health care provider deviates from the professional standard of care and thereby causes injuries to a patient, there may be a basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit. In addition to filing a complaint, a plaintiff needs to file an expert's affidavit. The expert should be qualified to testify as to the health care provider's negligence and be able to cite at least one act of negligence committed by the defendant's health care provider that gives rise to the medical malpractice claim. If you suspect that you have been a victim of medical malpractice, you should consult a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to allow for an investigation of your medical records and other evidence. From our main Alpharetta injury law firm, or from any of our other North Georgia offices, we are here to help! Call us today to discuss the details of your case.
When you put your loved one in a nursing home, you expect that he or she will be properly treated. Nursing home residents, unfortunately, are sometimes subject to abuse, neglect, or exploitation while living in nursing home facilities. They are often vulnerable and dependent on nursing home staff. The staff may not be properly trained, or the facility may be understaffed. Nursing facilities that accept Medicare and Medicaid funding must abide by federal regulations. Not all do, and the result may be serious injuries. You can recover damages against a nursing home for injuries or wrongful death to a loved one as a result of the nursing home's negligence or abuse. We specialize in nursing home abuse and neglect cases. In addition to our Alpharetta nursing home law firm, we offer Zoom calls, phone consultations, and five other locations in North Georgia to serve you.
In Georgia, you may be able to hold a manufacturer liable for defective products that cause injuries by filing a product liability lawsuit. There are three types of actionable defects: marketing, design, and manufacturing defects. You may be able to bring a lawsuit on the basis of more than one defect. For example, if a drug is dangerous because it has been formulated such that it results in a patient having a much higher likelihood of developing cancer, there may be both design and marketing defects involved.
If you are injured on the job, your remedy against your employer may be found through the workers' compensation system. However, workers may not realize that there may be third-party claims that they can simultaneously pursue following a workplace accident by filing a personal injury lawsuit. For example, there are many contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers on a construction site, and in some cases, it may be possible to hold a non-employer contractor accountable for negligence for causing your injuries. A personal injury attorney may be able to help you obtain compensation for failure to follow OSHA safety standards, failure to mark openings, falls, improperly installed scaffolding, unsecured staircases, and more. We have over 25 years handling work-related injury cases. From our main Alpharetta workers' compensation law firm, or from one of our other North Georgia locations, we can give you advice to ensure you get the help you need.
Boating accidents are often caused by drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or are inadequately trained to operate the vessel. Sometimes accidents happen because an inexperienced boater encounters a dangerous condition, such as severe wind or a large wake from another vessel. If you are injured in a boating accident, you may be able to recover damages from a negligent boater, whether you were a passenger on the boat or in another boat, PWC, or water affected by the boat accident. Boat accident lawyer Casey W. Stevens specializes in boating accident lawsuits and has recovered millions of dollars for victims who have suffered injuries from boat capsizing and boat crashes. Injuries and deaths can also occur due to defects in the design of the boat, and an experienced boat accident law firm will be able to recover compensation for clients who experience boating injuries resulting from faulty and unsafe boat designs.
If your child was seriously injured because you entrusted the child to a daycare that negligently supervised them, you should call an experienced daycare injury attorney who is knowledgeable about child injury cases. You will likely need to show that the caregiver failed to adequately monitor or supervise the children in their care. Damages that you may be able to recover include medical bills, expenses related to future long-term care, and emotional distress.

There are many reasons to hire a personal injury law firm. Like other businesses, an insurance company's goal is to maximize its profits. One way they do this is by minimizing their losses. If insurance companies treated accident victims fairly, there would be no need for personal injury lawyers. Insurance companies take advantage of the average person who has been injured, counting on the fact that most people don't understand personal injury laws, or what type of compensation they are entitled to. An experienced personal injury lawyer understands not only the laws, like the "statute of limitations", otherwise known as the time an injured party has to file a lawsuit, but they also understand that victims of accidents are entitled to compensation for more than just medical bills and vehicle repairs. The best personal injury law firms know not to settle too soon, before all treatment for injuries has been concluded, and can also find you the best medical care for your injuries and to help your case. We also know when to settle a claim and when to litigate. We understand the value of your case going in and know when to negotiate, mediate or litigate. And last but not least, a law firm that specializes in personal injury law can represent you in court when needed.
