According to the Department of Transportation, traffic-related mishaps are on the rise in Georgia. In-fact, traffic fatalities have increased by one-third between 2014 and 2016. After the physical and emotional toll of a collision, it’s overwhelming to deal with insurance adjusters, vehicle valuations, claims representatives, police records, and hospital visits.
If you’re involved in a car accident through no-fault of your own, consulting an attorney is undoubtedly in your best interest. Fortunately, our experienced personal injury representatives at Scholle Law have helped thousands of car accident victims recover just compensation for their injuries and undue hardships. Traffic accidents can cause serious injuries, missed time from work, substantial property damage, and prolonged psychological anguish—especially when the incident involves high-speeds or large commercial freight vehicles.Truck Accidents in the Dacula Area
As experienced attorneys, we‘ve seen the massive physical, mental, and financial impact a collision with a commercial vehicle can have on the life of an innocent motorist. The American Trucking Association likes to state, “without trucks, America stops.” Truthfully however, commercial trucks pose a huge risk on our regional roadways. As our town increases in popularity and population, so does local industry and commerce. We’re already beginning to see more freight and commercial traffic come through Dacula, and we believe this traffic will only continue to grow. Despite the precautions and regulations aimed to minimize trucking-related injuries, collisions with these massive freight vehicles are still on the rise. In these types of cases, proving negligence is not an easy feat, which is why victims should turn to an experienced legal professional for help. If you’ve been involved in an accident with a commercial truck, it is important to know your legal options. Accidents with commercial vehicles usually involve many separate parties, thus discerning who is liable can be difficult. In many of these cases, the driver, the driver’s employer, and the truck manufacturer can all be at-fault. Even if you’re unsure about opening a case, we can discuss your options and determine the next best step for your specific situation.Accidents at the Workplace
The level of danger in a workplace largely depends on the type of work facility. However, even inherently hazardous work environments (such as factories or chemical laboratories) must make employee safety a top priority. Yes, some workplace environments are high-risk and accidents are almost inevitable. 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.
Legal action can—and many-times should—be taken when employers fail to follow safety protocols and employees suffer injuries as a result. 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 on the part of your employer, it’s smart to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. National 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.Premises Liability
It happens to the best of us; we slip, we fall, we hurt ourselves. Most of the time, we spring back up and continue on. Unfortunately in some instances, the injuries sustained from a fall can be serious, resulting in major medical attention, costly medical procedures, or lifelong debilities. In these circumstances, the natural reaction is to seek compensation from the responsible party. But who might that be?
Premises liability, perhaps more commonly called a “slip-and-fall case”, is a type of personal injury claim that involves an injury sustained from a trip, slip, or fall on another’s property. Importantly for a case to be successful, the fall must be a direct result of the property owner’s carelessness or negligence.
Here are a few examples that we’ve seen in the Dacula region in recent years:
- Falls from wet or slick tile-floors
- Trips and falls from torn carpeting
- Falls from cracked walkways or ramps
Slip and falls can occur virtually anywhere, from grocery stores to residential sidewalks. These hazards can lead to significant injuries, especially for older individuals. Unfortunately, proving your fall is directly caused by another’s negligence is surprisingly difficult. An experienced attorney can discern whether your accident may constitute a strong and legitimate legal claim. If you know someone who is a victim of any of the aforementioned, give us a call.
