Getting hurt at work can be a complicated and stressful event. Many employers want to send you to doctors who will devalue the significance of your injuries or even have you return to work prior to your injuries healing properly. Some employers refuse to file a claim if you are hurt on the job by claiming you are just a contractor. We understand that if you are not working that you often cannot earn a living and have the experience dealing with all sorts of injuries in the workplace and can help you fight for a weekly wage, permanent impairment ratings, and even help you to visit the right medical specialist.
A car accident can change your entire life. Insurance companies often offer pre-settlements right after you have been involved in an accident without knowing the extent of your injuries. This can cause serious problems if you develop symptoms and pain after the initial collision. We specialize in working for our clients to get the insurance companies to accept liability and pay a fair settlement.
If you’re a cyclist, by law, you have the same rights as an automobile. If you have been hit by a car or truck on a bicycle, your injuries will be significant and recovery time can last a lifetime. We have experience and knowledge of Georgia and South Carolina bicycle laws and how it can relate to the liable person’s insurance or even your insurance.
Catastrophic injuries are devastating to everyone involved. We have experience handling multi-faceted cases that present themselves in a catastrophic injury. From explosions to multi-car pile-ups, we know how and when to get a manufacturer, an employer, or a parent company involved. Over the years, we’ve helped our clients with cases involving plant explosions, gas leaks, fire and arson cases, burns, amputations, internal organ injuries, traumatic brain injuries, bed sores, broken ribs, eye injuries and blindness, paraplegic and quadriplegic injuries.
We have a network of connections that can help you and your family.
Products should work as they are intended and without harm to you or others. We know how to handle big companies and their manufacturers of defective products and have engineers and experts that will help determine where and why the product failed.
Dogs can be hard workers and great pets, but occasionally, a dog can become aggressive and cause harm to you directly by bite or indirectly by chase until you become injured. Many counties in Georgia and South Carolina have very strict leash laws to prevent dogs from harming other people or pets. We have experience in getting insurance companies to cover medical expenses and pain and suffering from injuries inflicted by dogs and negligent dog owners.
Doctors and nurses are valued members of our community and are required to treat their patients with skill and care. Unfortunately, we know first hand that doctors and medical professionals can be negligent and neglectful which can have devastating consequences for a patient or their family.
Motorcycle collisions can result in knee injuries, brain injuries, and other devastating consequences. Insurance companies often treat motorcycle accidents as regular auto collisions, but we know that the injury that occurs on a motorcycle can have vastly different outcomes than if the rider had been in an enclosed vehicle. We have experience linking other riders, motor-vehicle operators, even rouge animals to negligence causing injury to a motorcyclist which the insurance company must accept liability for.
If you have been hit by a tractor-trailer or a commercial vehicle, there are a number of different laws, regulations, DOT standards, and even insurance that may deny you coverage for an accident that their insured caused. Big trucks cause big accidents that have a higher likelihood of causing serious injuries or even permanent disabilities. We have experience and a network of specialists that can inspect these trailers or cabs and can help you when you’ve been involved in a tractor-trailer or commercial vehicle accident.
South Carolina and Georgia began relying heavily on railroad transportation back in the 1800s. Many of these same railroads are used today. Unfortunately, these railroads require constant maintenance to prevent catastrophic injuries to people, vehicles, and even buildings. We have experience in going against big railroad companies and fighting for compensation for permanent injuries, damage, and even death.
Death can have long lasting effects on family and friends. If someone you love has passed away due to the negligence of another party or person, you may be able to bring a claim against the liable party. We understand that this is the most difficult time of your life and have the confidence and experience in representing family and friends of a decedent.
