A focus on personal injury law
In terms of our personal injury practice, we serve a large number of clients injured in traffic accidents. Located six miles off I-75 and right off I-24, Ft. Oglethorpe sees lots of drivers who are local to the area, as well as tourists. Many visitors come to see the area’s Civil War landmarks.
With an increase in drivers on the road comes an increase in:
- Car accidents. Serious car accidents can leave victims in critical condition. After being struck by another moving vehicle, talk to a lawyer to learn how you can hold the negligent driver accountable.
- Truck accidents. Truck driver fatigue is a common problem along North Georgia’s highways and is a major cause of commercial vehicle accidents—and a major cause of injuries for other drivers. Let our law firm stand up to the negligent trucking companies who allow reckless drivers to be on the road.
- Motorcycle accidents. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, chances are you’ve suffered broken bones, road rash and maybe even a traumatic brain injury. Without proper legal help, you may not recover all the compensation to which you are entitled. Without proper compensation, you may not be able to get the medical treatment you so desperately need.
In addition, our personal injury lawyers handle cases involving:
- Work-related accidents. When your workers’ compensation benefits are delayed or denied, contact an attorney for help. We can review your claim and fight back against your employer and the insurance company. If your work injury proves permanent, we can help you obtain Social Security Disability benefits.
- Nursing home abuse. If a loved one has suffered nursing home abuse, our team is here to help. We pursue full and fair compensation from reckless and careless nursing homes that allow their patients to be abused or neglected.
- Premises liability. Slips and falls, plus other types of accidents, that occur on someone else’s property are potentially subject to premises liability claims. Your lawyer can explain when and how a property owner is to be held responsible for your injuries.
- Product liability. Faulty consumer products, from medications to food to children’s toys, should never be available for sale. Yet, when these dangerous products enter your home and cause harm to you or a family member, you need to hold the manufacturer responsible for their negligent actions.
- Wrongful death. The wrongful death of a loved one can occur from a car accident, truck accident, work accident and more. During these times of distress, you should worry about recovering from your loss, not wondering how you will pay the bills. Our attorneys handle that.
Wagner & Wagner is primarily a personal injury law firm, although we do provide clients premier legal counsel in regard to issues such as business disputes and bankruptcy.
