A Comprehensive Atlanta Personal Injury Law Practice
We are a full-service personal injury law practice at The Zagoria Law Firm, LLC ready to take on any type of personal injury or civil negligence claim. In addition to helping dog bite victims, our practice includes all of the following types of injuries and accidents:
We handle car, truck, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents caused by drunk driving or distracted drivers, along with other forms of negligence or recklessness on the road, such as speeding, following too close, failure to signal or yield, unsafe lane changes, drowsy driving and more. Because of Georgia’s complicated laws on comparative fault, it’s essential to have a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer on your side who knows how to prove the other driver’s negligence and liability to the maximum extent.
Slips, trips and falls at grocery stores, restaurants, shopping malls and other establishments are some of the most common types of accidents to occur, and they can end up causing painful sprains, torn muscles, fractures, facial lacerations and worse, including fatalities. Property owners and insurance companies have a whole bag of tricks to try and avoid liability, such as saying the danger was open and obvious so the accident victim should have avoided it, or they didn’t have time to notice the defect and fix it before the accident happened. Most insulting of all, they might allege your injuries aren’t as serious as you claim they are, despite your suffering. Whether you slipped or tripped because of a foreign substance on the floor or suffered an assault due to a lack of adequate security, property owners have a duty to provide you with a safe premises, and we’ll hold them accountable when they don’t.
If you get sick or injured on the job in Atlanta, and your illness or injury is work-related, you are covered by Georgia workers’ compensation insurance. This means you are entitled to have your medical bills paid and also receive wage replacement while you are out of work or get payment for permanent disability. The insurance carrier might try to evade responsibility by saying the accident happened outside the scope of employment or your injury is from some pre-existing condition. If your claim is denied or unreasonably delayed, our dedicated workers’ comp attorneys will go to bat for you and help you get all the benefits you are entitled to under the law.
The Georgia Wrongful Death Act recognizes that a spouse, child or parent who loses a loved one due to somebody’s intentional or negligent act suffers greatly in many ways, both financially and emotionally. Georgia law allows you to recover compensation for the “full value of the life of the deceased,” as well as financial harm such as medical bills and funeral/burial costs and the pain and suffering the deceased had to endure. We’ll take on the burden of proving the negligent party’s fault to hold them accountable, obtain justice for your loved one, and get you much-needed financial help to deal with the hardship their negligence has imposed on your family.
