Injury after an auto accident
Motor vehicle accidents can result in severe or even permanent injuries. Most of the injuries suffered after a car accident often lead to financial losses to the victim and his or her family. Common injuries attained in an auto accident include the neck, spinal, and back injuries, broken or fractured bones, and head injuries.
As per the State of Georgia laws, every car owner is required to have liability insurance coverage for his or her automobile. Bodily injury liability coverage in the State of Georgia provides a minimum requirement of $25,000 per individual and $50,000 for every accident. These limits are often insufficient to cover an injured victim’s claim which makes it necessary to explore other compensation avenues with the help of a good personal injury lawyer.
The law provides the injured party to seek and recover compensation for damages incurred by the responsible party. The damages include, and not limited to, lost wages, medical expenses, funeral expenses in case of death, and other financial losses resulting from the injury. The injury victim is also entitled to compensation for pain and suffering resulting from injuries and treatment. We understand that monetary payment can never fully compensate for the physical damage the injured victim suffers but it at least eases the financial burden that befalls a person after a car accident. Our experienced auto accident attorneys will assist you to recover damages incurred and more. The lawyers are well versed in personal injury law and will help you get maximum compensation.

Injuries due to medical negligence
When you visit a medical professional in Georgia or elsewhere for treatment, you expect to get high quality and effective treatment services and attention. If the doctor, nurse, or physician fails to provide you with the required degree of treatment or care, you can sue them for medical malpractice. Nobody goes to a surgeon or any other healthcare profession with the intention of starting a lawsuit but a lawsuit can occur if the medical professional makes a mistake. You are entitled to compensation if something goes wrong in the course of treatment.
It is important to note that negligence in medical care or treatment can result in further medical expenses, lost time and wages, and other financial losses. There are cases where negligence in medical treatment and care result in permanent injury or a lifetime of pain and mental anguish. In such cases, both the victim and his or her family will suffer due to the physician or medical practitioner’s fault. The injury or debilitating condition caused by medical negligence impacts the entire family severely.
If you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, you are entitled to compensation for damages suffered including your past, present, and future medical expenses due to the injury. You are also entitled to recover lost wages and compensation for the pain and suffering. A financial award for the physical pain you have suffered does not include compensation for the mental anguish that comes with the pain. You are further entitled to recover other economic costs caused by the medical malpractice such as the purchase of new medical equipment and the costs of moving to a new home because of the disabling condition. Your spouse can also sue for compensation for loss of companionship and services you initially used to provide.
However, in the State of Georgia, as well as in other states across the country, medical malpractice suits are not only complicated but quite expensive to pursue. Most physicians usually have insurance companies who handle claims on their behalf. Insurance companies are known to be very aggressive in defending any claim lodged against medical facilities and physicians they insure. This often leads many such cases to litigation.
Medical malpractice lawsuits in Georgia cannot commence until an affidavit from a physician is attached to the defendant’s complaint. Naturally, most physicians will be reluctant to provide evidence or testify against their fellow physicians in the same state where they practice. It will, therefore, be necessary to do a nationwide search for a qualified medical expert to testify for you. Such are some of the many hurdles you’ll encounter in a medical malpractice suit. Fortunately for you, we have a team of expert medical malpractice lawyers who’ll assist you in every step of the way to ensure that you get the compensation that you rightfully deserve. If you or your loved one has suffered from medical negligence or carelessness, reach out to our firm and one of our professional attorneys will get back to you for a free consultation to evaluate your case.
If you suffer an injury at the workplace, you are entitled to full benefits of workers’ compensation. The benefits include medical expenses and your weekly income payments. Most insurance companies are not willing to provide the payments, which is why you need the services of our expert workers’ compensation attorneys to ensure that you get both medical and lost wages compensation. We’ll ensure that you start getting your weekly paychecks as well as compensation for your medical expenses as soon as possible.
Failure to provide you with the benefits, we’ll help you to take your case to the State Board of Workers’ Compensation and compel the insurance company to explain why your benefits have been withheld. Contact us today to find out how we can help you recover all the benefits you are entitled to after a workplace-related injury.
