Representing Injured Accident Victims
In the Atlanta area, many types of accidents occur every day that injures people. Some examples of claims that our skilled personal injury lawyers regularly handle include:
Car accidents – As reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 2 million people were injured in car crashes in the U.S. in a single year. Whether you are involved in a head-on crash, a rollover, or a rear-end “fender-bender,” the potential always exists that you could sustain serious injuries that require extensive treatment.
Truck accidents – Commercial trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and the damage and injuries they can cause in a collision with a smaller car can be devastating. The majority of truck crashes happen due to truck driver error. Such drivers should be held responsible for all harm they cause and losses incurred by victims.
Motorcycle accidents – Unlike people riding in cars or trucks, motorcyclists have no steel frame around them to protect them in a collision. The impact of a motorcycle crash can result in catastrophic injuries and safety gear does not always protect a motorcyclist from sustaining life-changing injuries.
Bicycle accidents – Similar to motorcyclists, bicyclists often have little more than helmets to protect them in the event of a crash. Whether bicyclists are hit by a car or crash due to a malfunctioning bike or a dangerous road, they often must deal with the effects of their serious injuries for months, years, or even the rest of their lives.
Pedestrian accidents – Pedestrians don’t even wear helmets, so they are often some of the most vulnerable accident victims. When a car or another type of motor vehicle crashes into someone who is walking, the pedestrian often suffers several points of impact, making it likely they will experience a number of different traumatic injuries.
No matter what type of accident happened, you have nothing to lose by calling our firm to discuss a possible case. We have helped clients with many types of injuries and we will do everything in our power to help you.
Handling Claims Involving a Wide Range of Personal Injuries
Accidents can cause a variety of different kinds of injuries, many of which can alter the course of a victim’s entire life. Even relatively minor injuries often result in a stack of medical bills for emergency treatment, physical therapy, and more. No matter what type of injury you suffered, our firm will always take your case seriously and uphold your rights to recover for all of your injury-related losses. We have the ability to handle cases involving the following injuries, among many others:
Traumatic brain injury – Also known as a TBI, this type of injury commonly arises from any type of head trauma and can range from mild (such as a concussion) to severe. Any degree of brain injury can have cognitive and physical effects and may result in permanent impairments.
Broken bones – Some broken bones require more medical treatment than others. Some victims may simply require a cast, while others may need multiple surgeries to insert pins and plates and may not be able to regain movement for a long period of time.
Sprains and strains – In some cases, it may be more difficult to recover from a sprain or strain than it is from a clean fracture. This type of injury can require extensive physical therapy and rest and may be very painful.
Tissue damage – Tears to soft tissue, such as the muscles, ligaments, or tendons, can be serious and may cause physical limitations. In severe cases, surgery may be required to repair the soft tissue with extensive post-surgical recovery time.
Neck and back injuries – Any injury to the neck or back can cause severe and chronic pain, as well as mobility restrictions. Many people with this type of injury must take off work and undergo extensive physical therapy.
Spinal cord injury – Any time the spinal tissue is damaged, the functioning of the body can be significantly disrupted, including loss of sensation and paralysis. While some spinal cord injury victims regain their abilities, some are left permanently disabled.
Burns – Burns can be caused in a variety of ways and can range from 1st-degree (relatively minor) to 3rd-degree (extremely serious). Victims of severe burns often require painful surgeries and time spent in a burn unit.
Internal organ damage – Even if someone appears to not have external injuries after a crash, he still may have suffered damage to his internal organs. It is vital to be thoroughly examined after an accident to ensure any internal injuries are diagnosed and promptly treated.
Scarring and disfigurement – Whether disfigurement is caused by a laceration, burn, or amputation, it can take a toll on a victim’s life and may lead to mental suffering.
Our law firm knows how difficult it can be to deal with a serious and unexpected injury. For this reason, we handle every aspect of your legal case to relieve some of your stress so you can focus on recovery while knowing your interests are being protected.
Our Attorneys Can Protect Your Rights in Many Ways
First and foremost, when you call Hasner Law, our lawyers will examine what happened in your case and identify whether anyone may be held liable for your losses. In order for a party to be held financially accountable, you must be able to prove that the other party acted in a negligent manner. This means that the other person had a legal duty of care toward you that he breached, and that his breach caused you to suffer harm.
Some examples of negligent parties that may be liable for your injury-related losses include the following:
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk or drugged drivers
- Aggressive drivers
- Fatigued drivers (commonly truck drivers)
- Drivers who speed or violate other traffic rules
- Commercial drivers who violate FMCSA regulations
- Trucking companies
- Manufacturers of defective products
- Parties that allow dangerous road defects
Some cases may be resolved through the insurance process, while others require filing a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia civil court. Our attorneys understand how to best protect our clients throughout the insurance process and also have extensive litigation experience. No matter what your case requires, you can trust that you’re in capable hands.
