There are two components to compensation for an auto/trucking accident: #1. Bodily Injury, and #2. Vehicle Damage. The bodily injury portion of your personal claim includes: pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills, to name a few. The vehicle damage portion often includes obtaining the market value of your vehicle. Contact us for a free evaluation of your claim.
Cases that involve substantial vehicle damage, serious injury, or death require the expertise of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Studies have shown that in most cases, when an attorney is involved in a personal injury case, the attorney will obtain more money for the claim— even after the attorney’s fees are deducted— than the individual would obtain on his or her own.
Normally, when you have an injury caused by another person’s negligence, you are entitled to pursue a lawsuit for all your damages, as set forth under the law. It’s important for an accident victim to remember that from the moment he or she is involved in an accident, their best interests are often the opposite of the best interests of their insurance carrier. Consulting a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is a must!
First, seek medical attention if necessary. Next, make a report at the business or residential location where you fell. It’s essential that you let the store manager, landlord, or homeowner know that you fell, where you fell, and what caused you to fall (if you are too injured to make a report immediately, call the next day to report the accident). Take note of with whom you spoke. Next, take photos of the exact area where the fall occurred, any substance on the floor that may have caused your fall, pictures of your injuries, and any damage to your clothing. Finally, contact an attorney with experience in slip and fall cases.
The short answer is: Yes! Under Georgia law, to recover for a dog bite, you must show either that the dog had a history of dangerous behavior and/or that the dog was not on a leash when the bite occurred, but was required to be on a leash under city or county ordinances. Therefore, the leash laws in the area where the bite or attack occurred can have a significant effect on your case. It’s important that you do not rush into a settlement without consulting with an attorney.
