A brown dog baring its teeth.When dangerous dogs are allowed on the loose by their owners, serious bite injuries can occur to innocent victims. Those injuries can include puncture wounds, soft tissue injuries, and broken bones, among other serious injuries. Children are especially susceptible to dog bites because they are less likely to be able to outrun a dangerous dog or otherwise defend themselves in the event of an attack

Slip and falls can occur both indoors and outdoors for a variety of different reasons. In some cases, these accidents occur because of something that the accident victim does or fails to do – like failing to wear proper footwear. At other times, these accidents occur because the property owner fails to keep his or her premises in a reasonably safe condition.

An empty city crosswalkGeorgia pedestrian accidents can occur in a variety of different locations, from parking lots and parking garages to sidewalks and crosswalks. In many instances, these accidents occur because a motor vehicle driver operates a vehicle in a careless or reckless manner, striking the pedestrian and causing him or her to fall and suffer injures.

Since pedestrians do not have an outer shell or covering around them, upon impact, they are likely to strike the ground violently and can suffer broken bones, traumatic head injuries, soft tissue injuries, and spinal cord injuries.

Fortunately, if you or a loved one has suffered any of these injuries in an accident, you might be eligible to recover damages.

How are Products Defective?

Red car with dented door and front fenderA report released in March of this year by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) paints a startling picture –  traffic fatalities among people 65 and older have increased by 22% from 2008 to 2017. The NHTSA reported last October that over 37,000 people were killed in car accidents in 2017, and the most recent report indicates that people 65 and older accounted for 18% of those fatalities. Clearly, older people are facing an increasing risk of serious injury and death on our nation’s roadways.  

Other Troubling Statistics

In addition to the raw numbers, the NHTSA’s recent report contains some other alarming statistics for older drivers:

A yellow taxicabAccidents can occur in taxicabs just as in any other motor vehicle on the roadway. In some instances, these accidents occur because of the taxicab driver’s negligence, while at other times, another driver on the roadway causes or contributes to the accident.

A statute of Lady JusticeIn some instances, when you bring a claim for personal injuries, the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to offer fair and reasonable compensation to settle. When that happens, you and your lawyer might decide to take the case to trial.

At a personal injury trial, credibility is extremely important. A witness who offers favorable testimony on your behalf could have an equally favorable impact on the trial result, translating into additional compensation for you. Some witnesses who testify at trial are lay witnesses, while others may be experts in a particular field.

If you have suffered injuries in an accident that was not your fault, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer representing you at all civil court proceedings, most especially at a jury trial.

lawyer standing next to a gavel with the scale of justice behind himIf you suffer injuries in a car accident case that is not your fault, you could bring a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. As part of the claim, your lawyer will likely submit a settlement demand package. This package includes copies of all of your medical treatment records, bills, and lost wage documentation. A copy of the police report is also typically included.

Once the insurance company reviews the demand package, the adjuster may make an initial settlement offer on your case. These initial offers are usually very low and are not meant to adequately compensate you for your injuries, suffering, pain, and inconvenience. If the car accident case does not settle, your lawyer will likely file a lawsuit on your behalf in the court system, and the case will be litigated. Upon completion of discovery, the insurance company may make additional offers to settle your case.

If the at-fault driver’s insurance company still refuses to compensate you adequately for your injuries, you and your lawyer might decide to take the case to trial. The knowledgeable Georgia car accident lawyers at Slappey & Sadd, LLC have been taking car accident cases to trial throughout Georgia, including in Fulton County, DeKalb County, Gwinnett County, Muscogee County, Newton County, Richmond County, Troup County, Walton County, and Whitfield County.
