A fork in the roadWhile some personal injury cases are quickly and fairly settled, many are not. In those cases there comes a time when you have to decide whether to accept what the insurance company is offering or decide to pursue the matter in court. This is an important decision – if you accept the settlement, you can’t change your mind. If you decide to go to court, your case could drag on for several more months or even years before you receive any compensation. 

An experienced personal injury attorney can help you weigh your options. The personal injury attorneys at Slappey & Sadd have been helping accident victims make the right decision since 1992. If you’ve been injured and don’t know what to do, contact the Georgia personal injury attorneys at Slappey & Sadd to schedule a free consultation – call us at 404-255-6677 today. 

How Long Will it Take for Your Case to Get to Trial?

An illustration of a man working at a laptop that was a question mark on itWe typically represent people who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. However, we also represent people who may be responsible for those accidents in certain situations (and assuming that we don’t already represent the plaintiff).

What is Bad Faith? 

 A woman laying in a hospital bedIf you’ve been injured, you are probably just starting to feel the impacts on your day-to-day life. First and foremost, you have to schedule appointments with your doctors to undergo medical treatment and possibly physical therapy. Of course, your treatment will require time off of work, in addition to the time you may have already missed immediately after the accident. On top of all of that, there is the paperwork, phone calls, and battling with your insurance company to cover your claim. The situation only becomes more complicated the more serously you are injured.

What May Not Qualify as Medical Malpractice

An image of bacteria Approximately a dozen students fell ill at a Georgia middle school when they ate candy that turned out to be contaminated. Authorities were initially concerned that the candy had been infused with THC or some other drug, after an incident in Fulton County earlier this year. However, testing determined that the candy was simply contaminated. While only one child was hospitalized, no one else suffered any serious harm as a result of the illness. Investigators believe that the candy may have been contaminated at the Hampton food bank where it came from.
