I provide comprehensive legal representation (actually trying cases to a jury in a courtroom) to individuals in DeKalb County, Clayton County, Fulton County, and all other counties in Metropolitan Atlanta and across the State of Georgia, who have been injured or lost loved ones as a result of the carelessness of others. I have served victims of car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, defective products, and many other accidents. Although my office is in Downtown Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia, I practice and try personal injury cases in all counties in Georgia. I have tried over 50 trials and have argued in Georgia’s appellate courts over 40 times.
I served as the 50th President of the State Bar of Georgia, only the second woman to do so in the history of the State Bar of Georgia. I am also a Past President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the professional association for plaintiffs’ personal injury trial lawyers in the State of Georgia. Throughout my service to the State Bar of Georgia, I have had the honor of traveling the State to meet Georgians and learn of their struggles. I have dedicated my life and career to seeking justice for individuals who have been injured and to protecting their rights under Georgia laws and the Constitution of Georgia.
In Georgia, a person who sustains bodily harm in an accident due to the negligent acts or omissions of another party has the right to seek compensation for their injuries. A person seeking damages in a civil lawsuit asserting a negligence claim must show that the defendant owed the person a duty of reasonable care and that the defendant's acts constituted a breach of that duty. The victim and their Atlanta injury attorney must then establish that the breach caused the victim to suffer quantifiable harm. The injured person does not need to prove that the breach was the only cause of his or her harm, but it must have been a significant factor contributing to the harm.Car Accidents
Car accidents can cause substantial harm, such as concussions, hemorrhages, spinal injuries, fractures, organ damage, and torn tendons and ligaments. Generally, car accidents are caused, at least in part, by the negligent driving of one or more of the people involved in the accident. For example, a driver might fail to yield at an intersection, text behind the wheel, drive while drunk, or fail to check a blind spot. As with other personal injury claims, a victim must pursue a claim to recover compensation within two years of the date of the accident. They may be able to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, future treatment, and other damages.Truck Accidents
Tractor-trailers allow companies to transport goods efficiently, but when they are not operated properly, they pose a serious risk of harm to everyone on the road. In addition to following general traffic rules, commercial truck drivers must abide by the duties imposed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The regulations establish minimum requirements that truck drivers and companies must meet regarding training, inspections, certifications, and drive times. If a driver fails to comply with a regulation, it may lead to a devastating accident. If you were injured in a truck accident, an injury attorney in the Atlanta area may be able to help you recover damages not only from the driver of the truck but also possibly from the trucking company.Motorcycle Accidents
People riding motorcycles have the same rights as other motorists, but they often go unnoticed by other drivers until it is too late. A motorcycle accident may occur when another driver fails to provide sufficient space when following a motorcycle, or turns into a lane in which a motorcycle is traveling. Motorcycles lack the protection of other vehicles, and motorcycle accidents typically cause catastrophic injuries or even death. If you were harmed in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to recover compensation for the cost of any medical bills incurred in treating injuries sustained in the accident, as well as the cost of treatment that will be reasonably necessary in the future. If you could not work following the accident, you may be awarded lost wages and loss of earning capacity damages as well.Premises Liability
Property owners generally have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. They can be held liable with the assistance of an Atlanta injury lawyer for harm that visitors sustain on their property. The precise duty owed varies depending on the nature of the visitor’s entry onto the property. For example, if the visitor's presence benefits the property owner in some way, the owner is required to exercise ordinary care in maintaining the premises. In any instance in which a person sustains an injury on someone else’s property, the victim must establish that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition that caused the accident.Product Liability
People regularly use a wide variety of consumer products to make their daily lives easier. Not all products are safe, however, and defective products cause millions of injuries each year. If you were injured by an unsafe product, you can pursue compensation from the product's manufacturer via a product liability claim. In Georgia, a product liability lawsuit may set forth claims of negligence or strict liability. In a strict liability claim, the injured person does not need to prove fault on behalf of the defendant, but they need to show that the defendant manufactured the product, that it was defective when it left the manufacturer’s control, and that the defect caused the alleged harm. A product may be defective due to an unreasonably dangerous design, a manufacturing defect, or inadequate warnings regarding the risks associated with using the product.Medical Malpractice
People rely on medical professionals to prevent and treat acute and chronic conditions. When medical professionals render treatment that falls below the standard of care, however, a patient should consult an injury lawyer in the Atlanta area to determine whether they should bring a claim. For example, if a doctor fails to promptly or accurately diagnose a patient, the patient’s illness may progress and become untreatable. Anyone harmed by inadequate medical care has a right to seek damages from the negligent care provider in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Medical malpractice claims are typically more complicated than many civil lawsuits and usually require the retention of one or more experts to establish a breach of the standard of care.Wrongful Death
If you lost a loved one due to someone else's negligent acts, you may be able to pursue compensation via a wrongful death claim. In Georgia, wrongful death claims arise out of Georgia’s Wrongful Death Act, which allows a surviving spouse, child, or parent to recover damages following the death of a family member. The damages that a person may recover under the Act are determined by the value of the life of the person who died. In other words, the economic loss caused by a person’s death will be assessed without deducting the anticipated cost of life’s necessities or any personal expenses. Generally, an injury attorney in Atlanta will hire an economic expert to establish the value of the deceased person’s life.Hire a Knowledgeable Atlanta Attorney to Assert Your Rights
