When you need a Marietta personal injury attorney, it is reassuring to work with a legal team with decades of combined experience helping injured people receive the compensation they need and deserve. We are on your side and will work tirelessly to collect the evidence that proves your claim while aggressively challenging the attorney or insurance representative for the other party. Below is a brief description of our practice areas.
Car and Truck Accidents
A negligent driver can cause serious injuries to other motorists. This is especially true when a commercial truck collides with the driver of a personal vehicle. Some of the most common injuries that occur due to a car accident include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, permanent paralysis, soft tissue injuries, sprains, and strains. Georgia law gives you two years from the date of the accident to hire a Marietta personal injury attorney and file a lawsuit.
Motorcycle drivers and passengers are extremely vulnerable to the negligent or even unlawful actions of other drivers on the road. In addition to the injuries listed above, it is common for people in a motorcycle accident to suffer from serious burns and road rash. The impact with a car or truck can cause the cycle’s gas tank to explode while road rash occurs due to the driver or passenger’s body dragging on the road.
If you've been injured in an accident of any kind, you're likely facing time off work and enormous medical bills. If this accident is caused by someone else's negligence, you can receive compensation to cover these expenses. Each of our lawyers are passionate about victim advocacy and fighting for the rights of those who have suffered personal injury. We are ready to gather evidence and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Injured workers in Georgia are entitled to a percentage of their weekly wages as well as payment of all medical expenses. Unfortunately, some employers try to evade their responsibility by denying legitimate claims for workers’ compensation. Employers can also make things difficult by creating a hostile working environment, delaying sending claims to the insurance company, and several other scenarios. If you are not receiving the benefits that you should, contact a Marietta personal injury attorney right away.
Social Security Disability Insurance
Applying for social security disability insurance (SSDI) can be a long and frustrating experience. Far more people receive a denial when they apply for the first time than those who receive an approval. Like workers’ compensation, you have a right to appeal when you feel that your disability entitles you to benefits. In many cases, the cause for denial is submitting an application containing one or more errors. You may choose to hire a Marietta personal injury attorney from our law firm to help you appeal your case or work with one from the start. The second option reduces the likelihood of making a mistake that could cost you much-needed SSDI income.
Wage and Overtime
If you are classified as an hourly employee, your employer must pay you wages and overtime for time and one-half for all hours worked over 40 per week. Sadly, many try to get around this issue by asking employees to work off the clock or by taking creative license with arranging the work week. We are happy to help you receive the money you have earned.
