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?

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.

Georgia Court of Appeals: No Claim Against Third Party for Losing or Destroying Evidence

shutterstock_550048915-300x169.jpgOne of the reasons that it is so important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible after a motor vehicle collision or another accident resulting in injuries or death is that there may be several potential theories of recovery, some of which may not be obvious to the injured party or his or her family.

Employer Forced to Pay Injured Worker's Attorneys' Fees for Wrongfully Denying Benefits

une 8, 2017 Causation and Notice - Two Issues That Can Complicate a Georgia Workers' Compensation Claim

Calendar-300x273.jpgIn a Georgia workers' compensation claim, the plaintiff has the burden of proving that his or her injury is compensable. This requires that the employee show, by a preponderance of the evidence, each and every one of the essential elements of the case: that he or she suffered an accidental injury, that the injury arose out of and in the course of employment with the defendant employer, and that the disability for which the employee seeks compensation resulted from the injury. In addition, the employee must prove that he or she gave timely notice of the work-related injury.

Product Liability Claims Can Yield Additional Compensation in Georgia Accident Cases

bucket-truck-277x300.jpgWhen a product defect or failure causes a personal injury or wrongful death, the accident victim (or his or her family, in the event of a fatality) may be able to recover money damages via a product liability lawsuit. In Georgia, the general rule is that a product liability claim must be filed within two years of the date of the accident or within 10 years of the date that the product was first sold. (Of course, it is always best to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney about your particular situation, since different or additional deadlines may apply.)
