How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?
While every case is unique, the vast majority of cases are concluded between 6 and 18 months after a client hires an attorney, depending upon the length of medical treatment and the complexity of the legal issues involved. There are several factors that might make a case take longer to resolve than others, including: a) different opinions of the settlement value of the case by the claimant and the defendant’s insurance company; b) the unavailability of key witnesses to give deposition testimony; and c) insurance coverage or legal defenses by the defendant’s insurance company that lead its attorneys to question whether or not their client will have to pay anything to resolve a particular claim.
Personal injury practice areas we specialize in
Charles Scholle and his team specialize in various types of personal injury law, including:
Car accident attorney in Lawrenceville, GA
Undoubtedly, Gwinnett County is growing at an unprecedented rate. Although this growth will certainly boost the local economy, it also means greater road traffic, more construction sites, and an increase in out-of-state drivers. Unfortunately, these factors are correlated to more traffic accidents on Georgia roadways.
Statewide, fatal auto accidents have continued to be a problem in recent years.
Although the number of traffic deaths in Georgia dropped for a second straight year in 2018, according to the 2018 Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 1,500 Georgia families and friends lost someone in a traffic crash in that year alone—an average of 4 deaths per day. Also, despite the total number of traffic deaths in Georgia declining in recent years, the number of pedestrian fatalities in the state has increased by 60 percent over the last 5 years.The Georgia Department of Transportation reported that 70 percent of traffic fatalities were caused by unsafe (and totally preventable) driving behaviors like distracted driving, impaired or intoxicated driving or driving too fast for conditions.
Regardless of how a crash occurred, if you’re involved in a car accident through no-fault of your own, consulting an attorney is certainly in your best interest. Traffic accidents, especially those involving high-speeds or larger commercial vehicles, can cause serious injuries, missed time from work, substantial property damage, and prolonged psychological anguish. An experienced Lawrenceville car accident attorney at Scholle Law will take these factors into consideration, and argue for a fair settlement.
Truck accident attorney in Lawrenceville, GA
Although the growth of the Lawrenceville area is great for local business, it also creates higher density roads and potentially dangerous construction sites. As industry grows, so will the number of commercial vehicles using the local roadways. As personal injury attorneys serving the Lawrenceville region for many years, we’ve seen firsthand the surge in accidents involving commercial vehicles, especially semi-trucks and tractor trailers. Accidents involving these types of vehicles can be devastating, and many-times result in debilitating or lifelong injuries.
Not only are truck accidents particularly dangerous, they are vastly more complicated from a legal standpoint. When an innocent motorist is side-swiped by a careless truck-driver, who is to blame—the truck driver, the trucking company, or the truck owner? Accidents with commercial vehicles usually involve many separate parties. For this reason, discerning who is liable—and to what degree of liability they can be held—is often difficult.
Determining accident liability is a challenge that should be handled by an expert. In these situations, it’s best to talk to a personal injury attorney with experience handling truck accident claims and who can help you fully understand your rights and options. Depending on the case, you may even be entitled to damages from 3 or 4 different parties.
Medical malpractice attorney in Lawrenceville, GA
You’ve probably heard the word “malpractice” before, but do you fully understand what it means? Malpractice (also called “professional negligence”) is a legal term that describes when the negligence of a professional causes serious harm to another. Medical malpractice is perhaps the most common example of malpractice. This is when a patient entrusts their well-being to a medical professional (such as a doctor or nurse), and the professional’s carelessness results in catastrophe for the patient.
Healthcare professionals aren’t perfect, and the stakes are high when dealing with an individual’s well-being and livelihood. However, just because a treatment or operation doesn’t turn out how you hoped or you are suffering side effects, doesn’t mean that malpractice necessarily occurred.
Medical malpractice occurs when doctors or nurses deviate from the standard protocol.
For example, consider the following questions to determine if you have a malpractice case:
- Was the medical professional competent, willing, and able to help?
- Did they inform you of the medical procedures beforehand and did they receive your undisputed consent?
- Did the professionals work with you in a timely manner?
- Did they give you enough attention, or were you quickly referred to another specialist?
At Scholle Law, we understand that these types of mistakes can have traumatic and lifelong consequences. Our team doesn’t take medical malpractice claims lightly. If you feel you or a loved one were the victim of medical negligence, contact us today. You shouldn’t bear the financial and emotional burden of a medical provider’s mistake. Our attorneys near Lawrenceville have experience with malpractice claims, and we can provide assistance and guidance through this difficult situation.
Wrongful death attorney in Lawrenceville, GA
What is a wrongful death? The term “wrongful death” represents a wide 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. Essentially, anytime an individual’s negligence directly or indirectly causes the death of another, a wrongful death lawsuit should be considered.
At Scholle Law, we understand that no amount of financial compensation will replace the loss of a loved one. The goal of a wrongful death case is to achieve some form of justice and closure by holding the responsible parties accountable. We help wrongful death survivors and beneficiaries receive compensation 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.
