Feeling Overwhelmed After a Car or Truck Accident and Wondering Where to Even Begin to Get Your Life Back on Track? Have You or a Loved One Received Bad Medical Care or a Misdiagnosis that Resulted in Serious Harm?When an Atlanta traffic accident or medical malpractice at a Georgia hospital leads to a serious injury, you are left coping with both physical and emotional pain. Those issues alone can be all-consuming, but to make matters worse, you also must contend with medical bills and a loss of income.
You might know that compensation from the insurance company could be available, but you may be unclear about how to get it or how much your case is worth. You might not even be aware of benefits available under your own insurance coverage.

The stark reality is that the insurance industry is far more concerned about maximizing their profits and protecting their bottom line than paying your claim. In fact, oftentimes insurance companies use tricks to confuse and intimidate claimants, in an effort to reduce the money they have to pay out for claims.

These books and reports are written in easy-to-follow language and are designed to help you navigate the difficult and confusing time after you or a loved one has been injured because of someone else's negligence.

In many ways, the American medical system is a modern miracle. Highly trained specialists use their knowledge and sophisticated medical equipment and devices to perform procedures and save or enhance lives in ways that were fantasies only a few years ago. But, too often, even simple procedures go awry. That is when you turn to an Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyer.
Georgia law says the measure of damages for a wrongful death is “the full value of the life of the decedent without deducting for any of the necessary or personal expenses of the decedent had he lived.” A jury also can award damages for such intangible factors as the enjoyment and experience of living. Although the victim’s lifetime earning capacity can be quantified with the assistance of financial experts, the intangible factors can be difficult to measure. Juries usually are instructed to use their “enlightened conscience” to determine an appropriate award.
About a million Americans get treatment for a head injury in a hospital emergency room each year. More than a quarter of them are diagnosed with a moderate to severe brain injury, and 70,000 Americans die each year from a head injury, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Medical and indirect expenses from such injuries cost the country more than $48 billion annually. Between 2.5 and 6.5 million Americans have survived a traumatic brain injury.
Georgia workers’ compensation law is designed to provide medical coverage and a basic level of support for employees who are injured on the job. It grew out of oppressive working conditions as the state and country industrialized at the turn of the 20th century.
