How can I recover from a serious slip-and-fall accident?

Something as simple as slipping on a wet floor can change your life forever. If you were seriously injured due to the negligence of someone else, you may be able to obtain compensation to cover your losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Wages lost during your recovery period 
  • Pain and suffering

Making your claim

Was your child injured during birth?

Parents constantly strive to protect their children. Unfortunately, sometimes the acts of others can put children, and mothers, in grave danger.

If your child was injured during birth, your entire family may have to deal with the consequences throughout the course of your child's life. A birth injury claim can help you pay for the continuing medical care and psychological treatment your child (and other family members) may need. If you are considering filing a birth injury claim, there are a few important facts you should know.

Were you involved in a rear-end collision? How's your head?

As anyone who has suffered a concussion will tell you, the head is a very delicate part of the body. If you are involved in a car crash, even if it seems like a minor rear-end collision, the impact could be enough to cause severe head trauma, including a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Symptoms of a head injury may not be apparent at first, which is why an immediate medical evaluation is essential following a traffic accident.

How can a pre-existing condition affect my workers' comp claim?

Some businesses are not too keen on paying workers' compensation benefits to their injured employees. In fact, a number of work comp insurance companies will deny rightful claims whenever they can.

One common way to avoid paying benefits is to say that a worker's injury is not new. If the employer or the insurance carrier can prove that an employee's injury is pre-existing, they may not have to pay any benefits. There are a few ways that employees can fight back.

Key factors for prevailing in wrongful death claims

When a loved one dies, it is hard on those left behind. When someone passes due to the negligent acts of another, compensation may be awarded to provide financial assistance to those left behind and also to deter others from doing the same to someone else.

In order to file a wrongful death claim properly, it is important to understand the process in full. There are a few key factors attributed with a successful wrongful death claim in Georgia.

Properly diagnosing brain injuries in children

Among other issues, repetitive stress injuries include bursitis, tendinitis, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome, which is one of the most common types of repetitive use injury.

Whether you sustain an injury on the job, in an auto collision or due to another accident, it can be overwhelming to take care of all the obligations that follow. You must seek out the medical care you need, of course, but you may also need to negotiate time off work and secure legal representation, too. Some of these tasks may entail extensive paperwork, which can seem overwhelming.

There is one particular document, however, that you should be wary of. When you receive medical treatment, your provider might request that you sign a medical lien agreement form. There are several things you should understand about this paperwork before you agree to sign it.

Medical costs can be deducted from compensation
