Our team of attorneys at Scholle Law has been part of the Buford community for a number of years. Through hard-work and dedication, we’ve gained the trust of its residents and have earned a reputation in the area for quality work at a fair and honest cost.
Over the past few years however, the region has grown at an exceptional rate. What does this mean for our community? The answer is unclear. What is certain, however, is that our team at Scholle Law will be there to serve the area—big or small—with all of its legal needs.
From traffic accidents to malpractice claims, our legal team is well-equipped to handle a plethora of different legal situations.
Here are just a few of the legal areas that we specialize in:
Even a non-serious car accident can be a traumatic experience. Not only do traffic accidents typically result in physical pain or mental anguish, they often require missed time from work and substantial medical treatment. Of course, substantial medical treatment means exorbitant medical bills as well. When accidents are particularly severe—which is sometimes the case when speeding or over-sized vehicles are involved—medical bills can accumulate to tens- or hundreds-of-thousands of dollars. Although accident-related injuries can involve anything from broken bones to prolonged mental trauma, blows to the head and neck are among the most common. Unfortunately, anytime a collision affects the head or neck region, the consequences can be serious, long-lasting, and require ongoing medical care.
This financial toll should not be the burden of the victim, which is precisely why a personal injury attorney should be consulted immediately following an automobile accident. Regardless of the extent of injuries, an experienced attorney will win a fair settlement that covers the medical dues, missed time from work, damages to the lost property, and compensation for any other undue hardships.Truck and Commercial-Vehicle Collisions
Despite the increased regulations aimed to minimize trucking-related traffic accidents, collisions with massive freight vehicles are on the rise in Buford, in Georgia, and in the U.S. more generally. The American Trucking Association likes to say, “without trucks, America stops.” Truthfully however, the sheer size of these commercial vehicles makes them serious hazards on the roadways. When trucks cross into your lane, run a red light, or swerve into your driving path, the results can be disastrous. This risk is only becoming greater as the Buford community grows in size. At Scholle Law, we’re already beginning to see more freight and commercial traffic accidents in the area.
If you were involved in a truck accident as a result of a negligent commercial driver, it is important to understand your legal rights. Proving trucker negligence is no easy feat, which is why victims should turn to an experienced legal professional for help.Workplace Incidents
As experienced personal injury attorneys, we understand that accidents can happen anywhere—and many-times when you least expect it. However, the one place that you would expect a controlled and maintained environment is the workplace. Unfortunately, all-too-often this is simply not the case. Of course, the level of danger in a workplace greatly depends on the type of facility (obviously, manufacturing centers or chemical development labs are inherently more hazardous). However, this is no excuse for a poor safety record. Employers have a legal duty to set standards for their company and ensure that employees know, understand, and adhere to these rules.
Albeit some workplace injuries are inevitable, legal action can and should be taken when employers fail to follow safety protocols. Many employers will disregard standards either to increase efficiency or protect their financial bottom-line. This is simply unacceptable.
If you believe your workplace injury was a result of negligence, carelessness, or poor decision-making from your employer, it’s smart to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. National rules and regulations are in-place to protect workers’ safety. These standards are not taken lightly, and when innocent individuals suffer injuries or hardship as a result of employer carelessness, they’re entitled to just compensation.Wrongful Death Actions
The term “wrongful death” represents a range of legal cases where an individual’s untimely death is the direct result of another’s negligence. This definition is intentionally broad, and can include anything from motorcycle accidents to construction site mishaps. Because of the ambiguity surrounding wrongful death cases, it’s important to consult with a trusted attorney if you’re unsure about filing a claim. Anytime an individual’s negligence directly or indirectly causes the death of another, a wrongful death lawsuit should be considered.
Here are a few examples of wrongful death suits that we’ve helped Buford Area residents with in recent years:
- Deaths from Medical Professional Mistakes
- Deaths from Negligent or Drunken Drivers
- Deaths from Defective Products, such as Medications
- Deaths from Hazardous Workplace Environments
- Deaths from Dangerous Roadways or Construction Sites
In a wrongful death case, our team at Scholle Law will compensate the survivors and beneficiaries while reprimanding at-fault parties for their negligence. If someone you love died a wrongful death as a result of another’s carelessness, we invite you to give us a call.
