In nearly all cases when a person suffers a substantial injury, someone’s unreasonable actions or inaction was a contributing factor. It may not always be immediately obvious, but we know where to look to uncover instances and evidence of negligence.
When a car strikes a pedestrian, there is usually a very good chance that negligence played a role. Drivers in Athens and Atlanta always have a duty to be on the lookout for pedestrians in and around the road. Even at relatively low speeds, pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries and can be traumatic.
Whether you ride for pleasure, for exercise or simply to get from place to place in Athens or Atlanta, you know all too well the challenges bicyclists face on the road. Many motorists — sometimes it seems like most motorists — simply have no idea how to deal with bicyclists on public roadways.
Buses can be dangerous to passengers, other motorists and pedestrians alike. Because of the size of these vehicles, bus accident injuries have the potential to be catastrophic and even fatal.
Every motorcyclist knows the joy of the open road but bikers are uniquely exposed on the road and are at risk for serious injuries when involved in accidents. Not all motorists give motorcycles due consideration, leading to an increased number of motorcycle accidents.
Commercial trucks are the biggest vehicles on the road. The tractor alone can weigh up to 10 tons with a 1,000 horsepower engine and a trailer adding tons more. This size and power means that truck accidents tend to be major, causing catastrophic injuries and even death.
Few experiences can affect your life so significantly and even fewer occur with so little warning. Your medical treatment and rehabilitation efforts can consume nearly all of your time, leaving you little time to consider the financial ramifications of your situation.
