Drivers, property owners, manufacturers, and others are required by law to consider the safety of others in their actions. When they fail in this duty, and people are injured as a direct result, they should be held accountable for the damage they have done. As personal injury attorneys in Georgia, we protect the rights of injured victims who have been harmed by the negligence of others. Read about the kinds of cases we accept here.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

A devastating motor vehicle accident can change your life in an instant. Serious and even permanent injuries can limit your ability to work and to enjoy life as you once did. Outrageous medical bills will start piling up immediately, and you may never be able to get out from under them. Even if you wouldn’t normally ever consider suing another person, if the other driver’s negligence caused your accident, you can turn this tragedy around by holding that person responsible for his or her actions.

Our motor vehicle accident attorneys will investigate what happened and let you know if we are able to help you secure more compensation than you can get on your own from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. If not, we will make sure you understand the steps you need to take to protect your right to compensation. If we believe we can add value to your case, we will go to work for you. You will not owe us any money until and unless we win compensation for you, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by reaching out to us today.

Defective Products

You don’t expect the everyday products you use to cause serious injuries and even death. You trust that the product designer and manufacturer have tested the toy, medical device, automobile part, or other items to ensure its safety. So when you, your child, or another family member is injured when using a product correctly, you feel angry and betrayed. Our products liability attorneys help you take action against the liable party not only to hold them accountable but to protect other consumers.

Products liability claims are not easy to win. Georgia has some very specific rules and restrictions regarding these kinds of claims, and you will need an experienced attorney to help you navigate them successfully. Contact our personal injury and defective product law firm in Athens to discuss your situation and find out if we can help you.

Premises Liability

Winning a premises liability case in Georgia is no easy task. Not only will you need to present evidence to prove the landowner or occupier’s negligence, but you will also have to meet a variety of other requirements to be eligible for damages. Without an experienced premises liability attorney on your side, you will have an uphill battle. However, the attorneys at Athens Injury Law Group can evaluate the circumstances surrounding your accident and let you know if you have a legitimate claim for compensation.

If your child was hurt in an unsecured swimming pool or you were injured in a slip and fall in a grocery store, assaulted in a dark parking garage, bitten by a dog, or injured in any of a number of other circumstances, you may have a premises liability claim in Georgia.
