Is there a time limit for filing my personal injury claim?
Yes. The city of Norcross, Gwinnett County and the entire state of Georgia enforces a deadline on personal injury lawsuits (known as the “statute of limitations”). In general, most people injured due to someone else’s negligence have just 2 years to file a claim. If you don’t file your lawsuit before this deadline, you will lose your ability to recover compensation for your damages. It takes time to prepare a compelling case on your behalf, which is why you should talk with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you have questions about your case.
Personal injury practice areas we specialize in
Here are a few of the many legal areas we specialize in:
Auto accidents are the leading cause of personal injury cases filed in Georgia. In 2017, Georgia was ranked as the 4th highest for traffic fatalities – and the number of vehicles on the roads has only increased multiple-fold since then.
Every car accident is unique and contains distinct features that can lead to a lawsuit. Injuries and damage sustained in an accident are pressing factors for a lawsuit. If you don’t want to bear the burden of somebody else’s negligent actions, then you should call a personal injury attorney as soon as police and medical help services are notified.
Scholle Law has been diligently serving as Norcross’ leading auto accident attorneys for almost two decades now. We understand that every case is unique, requiring professionalism and careful attention. Even the tiniest of details presented at the right time can cause a shift of the verdict in the accident victim’s favor. Having recovered millions of dollars in compensation for auto accident cases, we know how important that is.
Our dedicated auto accident attorneys look for on-site evidence such as tire marks, damage sustained by the vehicle, witness information, and GPS data — to name a few. Our commitment to helping clients receive fair compensation means we will contact leading financial and medical experts to ascertain the level of financial compensation that is adequate.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 13.10 car accidents out of 100,000 resulted in a fatality. The rate for motorcycles, however, is 72.34 per 100,000 registered motorcycles — approximately 59 more fatalities per 100,000 vehicles compared to other auto accidents.
In addition to being at a much higher risk of serious injuries and death, motorcyclists in Norcross also have to bear the weight of a negative stereotype. Insurance providers and negligent drivers are quick to label motorcyclists as reckless in order to get rid of financial obligations.
At Scholle Law, we have dealt with many prejudiced and uncooperative insurance providers when fighting for rightful compensation for clients. Our Norcross motorcycle accident attorneys are well-versed with such tactics and work rigorously to hold all parties accountable for fair compensation for the injured victims.
Some motorcycle passengers sustain serious injuries in part due to negligent behavior of the motorcycle riders – and the law allows passengers to bring claims on behalf of the motorcycle riders. Such complex situations can get quite overwhelming for victims since they require acute knowledge of legal matters.
Truck accidents have gone from being rare to an increasingly common occurrence. Owing to the sheer difference in the dynamics between trucks and passenger vehicles, the latter is at an inherent disadvantage.
To add to the victim’s misery, truck drivers are usually backed by commercial entities that have strong legal representation and are determined to escape any litigation and financial obligations with respect to the victim.
Scholle Law provides expert legal help for truck accident victims. Our lawyers know the importance of arriving on the scene of the accident and help you navigate through the many loopholes trucking companies use to deceive the victim.
There is nothing more stressful than losing a family member because of third party negligence. Wrongful death victims usually leave behind families that are distraught and financially struggling.
At Scholle Law, our hearts go out to you and your family during such a difficult time. We understand the need to be represented with as much dedication and compassion to ensure you get the compensation your family deserves.
Some of the most common reasons for wrongful death include:
- Medical malpractice – This includes misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, inadequate service (such as wrong prescriptions), or inaction.
- Accidents at work – Employers have a legal obligation to ensure that their employees don’t work in dangerous conditions or without proper safety equipment.
- Car or truck accidents – Drivers are responsible for operating vehicles safely, and drivers who talk on cell phones, text, or drive under the influence of alcohol may provide grounds for a wrongful death claim.
- Defective products – Manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products, including toys, power tools, vehicles, and other consumer products.
- Death during a supervised activity – Supervised activities can include sports tournaments, field trips, or other activities.
As Georgia’s leading wrongful death attorneys, we strive to achieve success in such cases through a mix of vigorous representation and skillful analysis of the whole situation. Our team of highly-qualified lawyers will carefully study the details of your case to provide you expert advice and help you get the justice you deserve.
