Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. in Albany Georgia has announced that they are offering personal injury attorney services in Albany and surrounding areas. They advise accident victims to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident and not attempt to settle their claim quickly on their own and just get what is offered by the insurance company. If they accept the offer from the insurance adjuster and sign a waiver, they will no longer be able to pursue any legal action against the person who was responsible for the accident.
“The insurance company is not on your side. Adjusters will tell you that their offer is fair and that you should simply accept it and sign off on your claim. This is a mistake that many people make at the beginning of their case. By the time you have accepted an offer and signed a waiver, you can no longer pursue any legal action against the at-fault driver,” says Tim Derrickson, marketing director at Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C.
He continues, “Our job is to evaluate your case and let you know what the claim is worth. We will not accept anything less than the value of the claim. In some cases, we utilize the assistance of outside experts who can help determine the amount of compensation you deserve. We look closely at all aspects of the case before going to the adjuster with a comprehensive settlement package. We'd like to invite you therefore to visit our Albany GA office location for your free consultation.”
There are many types of personal injury claims. These include automobile accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, dog bits, nursing home abuse, construction accidents, and premises liability.
Automobile accidents are quite common on the streets and highways of Georgia. A motor vehicle crash can result into a number of injuries, such as head trauma; broken bones; neck, back and spinal cord injuries; and permanent scars and disfigurement. These accidents may involve commercial vehicles like 18-wheelers. These crashes can result into serious injuries and can even be fatal. The Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. law firm can help victims of all other kinds of auto accident claims, including motorcycle crashes, pedestrian collisions, and bus accidents.
Meanwhile, a bicycle accident is also a common occurrence in Georgia because many people enjoy riding bicycles because of the warm weather. Unfortunately, bicyclists are a vulnerable group and have little protection in case they are involved in a crash with a motor vehicle.
With regards to slip and fall accidents, the owner of the premises may claim that they are not responsible for the injuries from a slip and fall, in spite of the unsafe conditions on their property.
Employees may also suffer from injuries at work, and depending on how the injury occurred, the employee could make a claim against the employer or third party. There are a number of Georgia laws that may apply to a particular situation.
Regarding defective products, Georgia Code 51-1-11 contains the laws on product liability with the state following a “strict liability approach.” This means that there is no need to show that the manufacturer was negligent in producing the product. Rather, the complainant can just show that the product was defective, that it was utilized in the intended manner, and that it has resulted into an injury.
Medical malpractice can occur when a medical provider’s negligence resulted into serious injuries or even death. The laws on medical malpractice are designed to protect people from reckless or negligent behavior from nurses, doctors, medical technicians, anesthesiologists, and more. Some of the common causes of medical malpractice are lack of training or experience; improper testing or missed diagnosis; fatigue; and improper administration of anesthesia or medication.
