D2115_29_296_1200-300x200On March 24, 2022, WAGA-TV FOX 5 in Atlanta reported that a Hall County jury ruled Northeast Georgia Medical Center gynecologic oncologist Dr. Andrew Green committed medical malpractice in a case where his patient later died. The doctor and the medical center were ordered to pay $3 million to the victim’s family.

drinking-beer-driving-behind-the-wheel-scaled-1-300x205On May 19, 2022, WXIA-TV 11 Alive reported that a 35-year-old ambulance driver and medic were facing more charges in connection to the death of a 66-year-old man when his ambulance rolled over along a Fairburn road last November. An indictment from a Fulton County grand jury alleged the man had both alcohol and cocaine in his system during the time of his crash, and he is now charged with two counts of first-degree vehicular homicide as well as driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, involuntary manslaughter, and reckless driving.

town-n-country-florida-personal-injury-attorneys-300x169If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the best way to protect your rights – in pursuit of your rightful compensation – is with an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer in your corner. The problem may be, however, knowing what to look for in a personal injury lawyer in the first place. Fortunately, there are some qualities to look for that can help you find the right lawyer for you. 

Experience 

You are looking for an attorney who has considerable experience successfully handling complex personal injury claims like yours. You can learn about a specific attorney’s experience by diving into the firm’s website. Another great resource for better understanding a specific lawyers’ level of experience in cases like yours is the information gleaned from the reviews shared on Yelp and by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). It’s important to remember, however, that some reviews are more credible than others. 

need-lawyer-car-accident-300x157If a negligent motorist leaves you injured in a car accident, you have a lot on your mind. You have your injuries and medical care to concern yourself with – in addition to the lost income you may be experiencing as a result of those injuries. It is a lot, and the last thing you may want to take on is the additional effort of finding and hiring a car accident attorney. The good news is that a car accident lawyer can take the burden of dealing with the insurance company off your shoulders – while capably negotiating for a favorable claim resolution. The sooner you reach out for professional legal counsel, the sooner you can focus on your recovery – with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a skilled Atlanta car accident lawyer on your side. 

The First Order of Business 

If you have been injured by another driver’s negligence, the first order of business is obviously obtaining the medical attention that you require. The fact is that you can be seriously injured without recognizing you’ve been harmed. The shock and adrenaline rush that accompany violent car accidents can mask the initial pain and early symptoms you experience, and some injuries – such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and spinal cord injuries – can be asymptomatic in the beginning. After seeking medical care, the most important step you can take is reaching out to a seasoned car accident lawyer.
