a man dressed in bio-protective gearSince the coronavirus made its way to America, many of us are suddenly facing unemployment or unable to pay our bills. As the quarantine drags on, businesses are losing money, if they aren’t closed altogether. An increase in bankruptcy cases seems inevitable, as does an increase in business-related litigation as businesses cannot meet contractual obligations. Even divorce attorneys are anticipating a spike in cases. At Slappey & Sadd, we are concerned about what the coronavirus may mean for injury claims across the state of Georgia. 

Nursing Homes

The elderly are among the most vulnerable, especially when it comes to contracting the coronavirus. We have written extensively about negligence in nursing homes, particularly about how many nursing homes across the state of Georgia routinely fail to provide an adequate level of care. If a nursing home facility fails to take reasonable precautions against the transmission of COVID-19, the results will be deadly. We are monitoring this situation closely. 

An empty courtroom.If you are involved in a car accident in the State of Georgia, it is important to remember that the at-fault driver’s insurance company is never on your side. The insurance company’s main goal is to offer the lowest possible settlement amount that you will accept in order to resolve your car accident claim. When that settlement offer just isn’t enough, a personal injury attorney may recommend that you “roll the dice,” so to speak, and consider taking your chances at trial.

Trials have both advantages and disadvantages. When you let the experienced Georgia car accident lawyers at Slappey & Sadd, LLC handle your case, we can explain all of your legal options and recommend whether trial might be the best option for maximizing your recovery.

We represent car accident victims throughout the State of Georgia, including in Fulton County, DeKalb County, Gwinnett County, Muscogee County, Newton County, Richmond County, Troup County, Walton County, and Whitfield County. Call us today at 404.255.6677, or contact us online to find out how we might be able to assist.
