Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys Looking Out for You

If you have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, it is only fair that the responsible party should compensate you for your injuries. Georgia law recognizes this simple principle of justice and allows you to hold the responsible party accountable for all your legal damages, including past and future medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss to your quality of life, property damage and more.

Recovering the compensation that is due to you, however, is not a simple matter. The burden is on you to bring a claim against the other party and to be able to prove the other party’s negligence, in addition to the extent of your injuries. The other party and their insurance company, meanwhile, may challenge you at every step and try to avoid paying your claim, or pay as little as possible. They may claim that your injuries are exaggerated or were caused by some earlier incident, or that some other party is at fault. They may even try to shift the blame on to you. Any amount of fault they can put on you reduces the amount of compensation you can recover.  Also, in GA, if they can convince a jury that you were 50% or more to blame, then you can be shut out from recovering any compensation at all.

How to Hire the Best Personal Injury Lawyer in Georgia

For all of these reasons, having experienced attorneys on your side and dedicated to your cause is essential to obtaining a successful financial recovery on your personal injury claim. At the Anagnostakis Law Group, our lawyers start building your case soon after the accident, investigating and collecting evidence that proves the other party’s fault. We negotiate with the other party and their insurance company, and if a fair settlement cannot be reached, we are prepared to litigate your case all the way to trial and a jury verdict.

We can help you if you have been injured by another’s negligence or misconduct in a variety of scenarios, including:

Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents – Motorists owe a duty to drive with care and are charged with understanding and obeying the Georgia motor vehicle laws. Sorting out the responsible parties in a complex car accident case can be challenging. We will help you obtain compensation in any type of vehicle accident, including hit and run or accidents caused by uninsured motorists.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents – Cyclists must obey the rules of the road, and pedestrians should only walk or cross in designated areas.  However, motor vehicle drivers owe a duty of care to cyclists and pedestrians.  Bicycle riders and pedestrians are at risk for serious injury or death whenever they are struck by a moving vehicle, even at relatively low speeds in heavy traffic.

Slip and Fall – Property owners owe a duty to provide a safe environment for persons on their premises. Dangerous conditions, from torn carpeting and broken light fixtures to food or drink spills, should be promptly corrected or warned about. This duty extends to persons invited onto the property, such as customers or members of the public, as well as people with a license to enter the property to conduct their business, such as delivery persons. Even trespassers are protected from certain property owner actions. Slip and fall and other premises liability cases can be difficult to prove, but we know the steps necessary to prepare and present a convincing case that establishes the property owner’s legal responsibility.

Medical Malpractice – Doctors and other health care professionals are expected to perform with a certain degree of care and competence, and when they fail, the results can be particularly harmful. Doctors, hospitals and their insurers fight especially hard to protect their reputations and minimize payouts. We fight harder to hold physicians and nurses accountable for medical errors, which helps ensure a safe system for all.

Wrongful Death – When another person’s negligent, reckless, intentional or criminal act causes the death of another, Georgia law allows the spouse, children, parents or others to bring a claim for wrongful death. Family members left without a loved one can recover costs such as medical expenses and funeral and burial expenses, as well as compensation for the loss of income, care and companionship they have been deprived of.  We approach wrongful death cases with sensitivity, compassion and a commitment to do whatever we can to ease the burden on surviving family members.
