There are many different situations and reasons to consider consulting with and potentially hiring a Georgia personal injury attorney. Some of the most common of these include the following circumstances and claims:
- Auto Accident Injury Claims
- Medical Malpractice Claims
- Defective Product Claims
- Slip/Trip and Fall Injury Claims
- Premises Liability Claims
- Dog Bite and Attack Injury Claims
- Child Injury Claims
It can be complicated to make sense of the various laws, statutes, and regulations of Georgia, so it really helps to have an experienced attorney in your corner when you’re facing any kind of personal injury claim. This is especially true when you are also focused on recovering from your injuries and trying to pay your bills and maintain your lifestyle. The requirements of the law and the details of pursuing a claim can be one stress too many. The fact is that you’ve got a burden of proof to establish, and you’ve got to make it clear that someone is responsible for your injuries and express why with the evidence to back up your claim. This can all be much easier with the aid of qualified legal representation.
The attorneys at the Wade Law Offices are here for you. We know how to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that they violated that duty, that you experienced damages due to the negligence of the defendant, and that you deserve compensation for those damages. We also offer a free consultation to help you determine whether you have a valid claim and what it will take to prove that claim. It also helps to know that we don’t charge upfront fees if you do decide to retain our services. We work on a contingency fee basis, so that we don’t get paid unless you get paid. If you’re still not sure if your situation warrants the advice of a lawyer, consider the following circumstances in which it is vital to have legal representation.
When You Are Contacted by an Insurance Company
If you are contacted by an insurance company after your injury, you should politely and respectfully decline to comment on your case until you’ve had a chance to speak to an attorney. Then, you need to call us. The last thing you want to do is communicate with the insurance company of the liable party on your own. They are going to be looking for any opportunity to twist your words, use them against you, or get you to agree to a ridiculously low settlement. Don’t trust an insurance claims adjuster, no matter how polite they may seem. As soon as you are contacted by an insurance company, make the call to the Wade Law Offices.
When Medical Malpractice is Involved
If you’re dealing with a medical malpractice claim, you have quite the uphill battle ahead of you. At the same time, this isn’t something you can simply turn away from or be bullied into dropping. It is notoriously difficult to prove medical malpractice claims, and the doctors and hospitals are definitely going to have attorneys working for them. Don’t try to face them alone. Call the attorneys at the Wade Law Offices to even the playing field with an experienced attorney of your own. We’ll handle the most challenging aspects of your claim, including gathering evidence, addressing the important paperwork, and facing the attorneys of the at fault medical professionals while you focus on recovering and getting back on your feet.
When You Require Medical Treatment for Your Injuries
If you have an accident that results in no injuries and no damages, or even simply mild injuries, such as minor bruising, then you may not need medical care, and you may not need an attorney. However, if you have to seek any form of medical treatment, it is likely worthwhile to at least consult with Wade Law Offices to discuss whether or not you have a Georgia personal injury claim. The consultation is free, so you don’t have anything to lose by taking the time to find out if you should pursue a claim for compensation.
If you’re still wondering whether or not you need an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney, there is a good chance that you do. If you didn’t, it probably wouldn’t even occur to you to wonder about it. It is always better to be safe than sorry, especially when your initial consultation doesn’t cost anything at all. Whether you’ve been injured in an auto accident, medical malpractice case, defective product accident, slip or trip and fall incident, premises liability accident, dog bite or attack, or even if someone you care for has been injured in any way, get the free consultation and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that you’re taking the necessary steps to ensure that you get any compensation that you need and deserve.
