5 Pieces of Evidence to Prove Your Right to Compensation After a Car Accident

When you are injured in a car accident, collecting compensation may not be as easy as you’ve been led to believe.

Can I Pursue a Motorcycle Accident Claim If I Wasn't Wearing a Helmet?

Under Georgia's motorcycle laws, all riders (drivers and passengers alike) must wear a helmet at all times. This isn't just the law- it's also good sense. You should take every reasonable precaution to protect yourself while on a motorcycle.

How Can Personal Injury Law Help Me?

As a society, we recognize two competing realities. First, someone who is hurt as a result of another person's negligence deserves some form of compensation for their injuries. Second, it's hardly fair or just for the person responsible to go to prison as a result of simple negligence.

This is where personal injury law comes in. Whether you suffered a motor vehicle accident or some other incident that resulted in a meaningful injury, personal injury law exists to help you in this difficult time.
