Stevens has decades of experience ensuring our clients get the compensation they deserve after a car wreck. Compensation for lost wages, pain, and suffering, property damage, loss of enjoyment of life, and medical expenses.What is Negligence?
Four things need to be established legally to prove negligence. Simply, in a situation regarding personal injury, it must be proven the defendant owed the plaintiff a certain standard of care. That the plaintiff did not execute that care. That the failure to execute care resulted in the accident and that the accident resulted in injuries and/or property damage.Meet With a Top-Rated Car Accident Lawyer Serving Buford
