CAR ACCIDENTS

CAR ACCIDENTS

Getting fair treatment and just compensation after a car accident isn't a simple task. We have seen many insurance adjusters tell clients they will take care of everything. But the insurance adjusters fail to mention one thing--their priority and only priority is to pay you as little as possible and if possible nothing in some instances.

You need someone who is willing to fight for you. We have fought for hundreds of clients and have a very high success rate. Not only will we fight for you, we will help you recover the most amount of money as quick as possible in the quickest amount of time as possible.

TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Truck Accidents Can Be Devastating
Although car accidents can cause serious injuries, truck accidents tend to be particularly catastrophic, mainly because of the size and weight difference between a truck and a car. Trucks typically weigh 7 times more than cars, often times resulting in fatalities or serious or long-lasting injuries, such as:

  • broken bones
  • spinal cord injuries
  • amputations
  • abdominal injuries
  • neck injuries
  • head injuries, including concussions and other traumatic brain injuries

Don't fight this battle alone, call us today at (404) 670-9918. You may be entitled to money.

Why Truck Accidents Happen
Here are some of the most common reasons truck accidents occur:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to properly secure a load
  • Improper Cargo
  • Mechanical Defects (tires, brakes, etc.)
  • Alcohol or Drug Use
  • Little to no training
  • Fatigue

Fatigue is a common cause for truck accidents. Fatigue is so important that the federal government created a department, specifically for monitoring commercial truck companies to help reduce trucking accidents that occur on our highways. That department is called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). As part of its power, federal regulations mandate that truck drivers must have a minimum of 10 hours rest between shifts and must not log or work more than 60 hours in one week. Or drive more than 10 hours in one day.

Unlike most drivers, commercial drivers are held to a higher standard. That is, commercial drivers have to apply for a special license, which is commonly known as CDL license. Besides a special license and adequate training and drug testing, commercial drivers also have to keep detailed logs of their departures and arrivals, including mileage, cargo, place of origins and place of departures, and hours driven.

Unlike car accidents, truck accidents are very complex. That's because most, if not all, trucks have on-board computers, commonly referred to as a blackbox, keeping vital information on the truck driver's speed and other vital information moments before an accident. Preserving evidence is critical in winning any case. Call us today at (404) 670-9918, as we have recovered and won millions of dollars for our clients. 

SLIPS AND FALLS

You may be unaware, but slip and falls are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States. If you or a loved one have been injured at a store or any other premise and you believe someone else is responsible, you can call us at (404) 670-9918.

Motorcycle & Bicycle Accidents

Often times, motorcycle or bicycle accidents are very serious and range from broken bones, severe brain damage or even death. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident or you have lost a loved one, give us a call, we can help, and we will fight for you. Call us at (404) 670-9918.

Common Motorcycle or Bicycle Accidents Include:

  • Head injuries (concussions or traumatic brain damage)

  • Paralysis
  • Burst Eardrum

  • Abdominal injuries

WRONGFUL DEATHS

No event is more traumatic than the lost of a love one. If you have lost a loved one because of negligence or fault of another party, we can help. We know that there is nothing that can be said to replace the lost of your loved one. Unfortunately, the law will only allow you to be compensated through money for the loss of your loved one.

We know that the lost of a love one is an emotional time and the less stress you have the better. We are here to help you reduce your stress and hopefully obtain peace. We will fight for you every step of the way and demand that the insurance company or any at fault party pay what's rightfully just and fair in your case. Call us a free consultation at (404) 670-9918.

Here are some of the damages that can be collected in a wrongful death claim:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income your love one contributed to the household
  • Loss of inheritance that would have accrued over time
  • Loss of household services your loved one provided
  • Loss of care and companionship

SURVIVAL CLAIM VS. WRONGFUL DEATH
A survival claim is pursued by the representative of the deceased's estate. Money recovered from a survival claim is given to the estate of the deceased and distributed to the deceased's heirs, which often includes family and others. Unlike a survival claim, a wrongful death claim is pursued directly by the deceased's family members and the money is given to the family members.

Each case is different and determining when to pursue both a wrongful death claim or a survival claim or both, should be discussed with an attorney. Call us today, so we can help you make the right decision and help you recover what's rightfully yours. Our number is (404) 670-9918.

WORKERS' COMPENSATION

If you have been injured at your job, whether it's an automobile accident, construction site accident, a defective machine, or a fall, we can help. Injuries at work can have a traumatic effect on your life and can disrupt the flow of your life. If you have been injured, you need to inform your boss of your injury. If more than 30 days' pass, you may lose the opportunity to receive benefits.

In Georgia, someone who is injured on the job is entitled to a percentage of his or her income while he or she is out of work and he or she is entitled to have his or her medical bills paid. In some instances, you may be entitled to a lump sum of money for your injury. Give us a call for a free consultation at (404) 670-9918.
