Georgia Statute of Limitations Bars Parents' Child Injury Claim

photo_1755_20060703-200x300.jpgThere's an expression, "don't sweat the small stuff," that implies that the finer details of a situation often do not really matter. While this may be true for some things, it is definitely not true in a Georgia premises liability case.

Aggravation of Pre-Existing Condition in Georgia Workers' Compensation Claims

shutterstock_96495449-300x193.jpgGenerally in the law, a defendant "takes the plaintiff as he finds him," even if the plaintiff had some pre-existing malady that made him or her more susceptible to injury. This is usually true in workers' compensation as well, in which the law holds an employer liable for work-related incidents or injuries that aggravate a pre-existing condition.

Suspension of Weekly Workers' Comp Benefits Possible When Employer Offers Work

photo_21326_20120124-300x201.jpgThose who are hurt on the job may not be able to return to their regular duties, either temporarily or permanently.

Georgia Court: Only One UM Policy Available Despite Two Policy Numbers

photo_54910_20151126-300x300.jpgAtlanta wrongful death lawsuits can be very difficult, not only emotionally but also procedurally. Often times a family must relive the accident as they seek to prove the elements of negligence (duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages), in addition to dealing with the inherent difficulties of placing a "value" on the loss of their loved one.

Georgia Appeals Court: Details Matter in Notice of Injury Claim!

photo_24314_20130427-300x200.jpgIn an Atlanta personal injury lawsuit filed against a municipal corporation (such as a city government), the injured person must give written notice of his or her claim prior to filing suit, or else he or she will not be allowed to maintain a negligence case seeking compensation for his or her injuries.

My Boss Told Me to Say My Injury Was Not Work-Related. Is That Legal?

shutterstock_531845902-300x200.jpgSince we represent so many injured employees in Atlanta workers' compensation cases, we are used to answering certain questions like, "Who will pay my medical bills? How much temporary disability can I draw? What will happen if I can't go back to work due to my injury?"

Local and National News Shed Light on "Big Problems" in Georgia Workers' Compensation System

photo_21468_20120211-214x300.jpgIf you take a cursory look at the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation website, you might believe that filing a claim for workers' compensation is a relatively pain-free process that involves only the completion of a simple form.

Atlanta Federal Court Denies Injured Cyclist's Motion to Exclude Expert Testimony by Accident Reconstructionist

photo_31119_20140324-663x1000.jpgWhen the cause of an Atlanta motorcycle accident is disputed, one or both parties may seek to introduce the testimony of an accident reconstructionist. Such testimony is not automatically heard by the trier of fact at trial, however, since the burden of proving the admissibility of the witness' testimony is on the party seeking to introduce it. Unless the proposed expert is properly qualified to testify as to the issues at hand, the trial court judge will not allow the testimony.
