Imagine getting hurt, losing money or losing a loved one because of abuse committed by a corporate entity.

Sending a strong message with wrongful death claims

Losing a loved one can be among the most devastating experiences that a person can go through.

Report: 130 Georgia motorists injured in winter-weather accidents

Drivers across Atlanta generally do not expect that a drive home from work or a quick trip to the grocery store could end with a serious accident.

Medical malpractice: Do you know enough about it?

Many people do not think that they have been or can be a victim of a medical mistake, negligence or misdiagnosis. Unfortunately, these incidences happen more often than people may be aware and there are potentially many patients across Atlanta who may be victims of malpractice.

How can claim trends help victims of medical malpractice?

Going to the doctor for any procedure can be a very frightening experience for people across Atlanta. We don't always know what to expect and there may be significant health risks to worry about. In many cases, surgeries and other procedures are successful and go according to plan. But when they do not, patients can become victims of a serious or fatal illness or injury.

Even seemingly minor car accidents can yield serious injuries

We've previously discussed in this blog car and truck accidents in which those impacted suffered serious or even fatal injuries. Thankfully, the majority of car accidents are not deemed serious and do not result in those drivers and passengers impacted suffering the types of injuries that are considered to be life-threatening. Even seemingly minor injuries, however, are often painful and can adversely impact an individual's ability to perform everyday tasks.
