No doubt, 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 will likely lead to more traffic accidents on Georgia roadways.
State-wide, roadway tragedies have increased in recent years. A 2016 report released by the National Safety Council found that traffic fatalities in Georgia grew 34% between 2014 and 2016 (the fifth largest increase in the country, only behind New Hampshire, Vermont, Oregon, and Idaho). Reports that focused on-non fatal accidents showed similar results. What’s causing this unfortunate trend? State officials point to the usual culprits: high speeds, intoxication, and distracted driving.
Regardless of how it 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, or prolonged psychological anguish. An experienced personal injury attorney will take these factors into consideration, and argue for a fair settlement.Commercial Truck Accidents
As we’ve said earlier, the Lawrenceville area is growing in both popularity and population. Although this is great for regional business, it also introduces higher density roadways and potentially dangerous construction sites. Also, it’s important to keep in-mind that as industry grows, so will the number of commercial vehicles using the local roadways. As personal injury attorneys servicing the Lawrenceville region for a number of years, we’ve seen firsthand the surge in accidents involving commercial vehicles, especially semi-trucks. Accidents involving these types of vehicles can be devastating, and many-times result in debilitating or lifelong injuries.
Not only are these incidents 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? Accidents with commercial vehicles usually involve many separate parties. For this reason, discerning who is liable—and what degree of liability they hold—can be difficult. Is the company at-fault? How about the driver of the truck? Can the truck manufacturer be held accountable? Disentangling liability is a challenge that should be handled by an expert. In these situations, it is important to talk to a personal injury attorney (with experience handling truck accident claims) to understand your rights and options. Depending on the case, you may even be entitled to damages from 3-4 different parties.Medical Malpractice Suits
Many people have heard the word “malpractice” before, but aren’t entirely sure what it means. Malpractice—also called “professional negligence”—is a legal term that describes the situation where the negligence of a professional causes serious harm to another. Perhaps the most common example is Medical Malpractice, where a patient entrusts their well-being with a medical professional, and the professional’s carelessness results in catastrophe for the patient.
Truthfully, healthcare professionals are not perfect, and stakes are high when dealing with an individual’s well-being and livelihood. The problem often occurs when doctors or nurses deviate from the standard protocol. For instance:
- 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. For that reason, out team doesn’t take medical malpractice lightly. If you feel the above questions apply to you, contact our office today. You shouldn’t bear the financial and emotional burden of a medical provider’s negligence. Our attorneys in the Lawrenceville region have experience with malpractice claims, and can provide assistance and guidance through this difficult situation.Wrongful Death Actions
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.
