Truck accidents are not simply bigger car accidents.

Frequently, a truck driver’s employer can be held accountable for a truck crash if the driver was on the job at the time. This is known as the theory of vicarious liability. In other circumstances, a trucking company may have been responsible for a truck accident in the Evans Georgia area if it failed to appropriately maintain its vehicles or make sure that its drivers were qualified to operate them. In some cases a trucking company will miss or deliberately neglect a red flag during the hiring process, or it might allow or encourage drivers to falsify their logbooks or violate other federal regulations. In other cases, a manufacturer might be held accountable for a defective component that caused a trucking accident. Evans Georgia injury lawyers The Nelson Law Group have collaborated with accident investigators and reconstruction experts who help prepare these complex cases. Additionally, we work with doctors, economists, and life care planners to aid in explaining for a judge and jury the financial impact of an injury on a client.

Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders place themselves at risk whenever they get on the roadway. Their vulnerable position exposes them to significant injuries, such as brain injury, spinal cord injuries, and also road rash, when a negligent, reckless or careless driver strikes them. Georgia law requires drivers to share the roadway with motorcyclists, yet many drivers do not heed these rules. After a motorcycle accident, moreover, a negligent, reckless or careless driver or their insurance company sometimes will point fingers at the motorcyclist and allege that they caused the crash. It can have the effect of preventing or reducing a victim’s compensation award if this argument is successful. Motorcycle accident lawyer The Nelson Law Group understand the significance of battling these accusations, and we can build evidence to ensure that a defendant pays the full compensation to which you are entitled.

Slip and Fall Accidents and Other Premises Liability Claims
As a guest or customer in someone’s home, apartment complex, condominium, business, hotel, or motel, you have a right to expect that the properties will be safe and that you will be free from harm caused by the negligence of the property owner, operator, or maintenance company. But when maintenance is neglected or building codes are not complied with, unsafe conditions might lead to injuries to victims. Similarly, when an owner or operator of property has notice of an increased risk of violent crime, there may be liability to a victim who is injured by a crime on the approaches or premises. For an injured individual to recover damages under a premises liability theory, their slip and fall attorney generally must establish that the landowner had superior knowledge of the condition or hazard that caused their injury. As an injury lawyer experienced in investigating and litigating Evans Georgia accident cases, The Nelson Law Group has effectively brought a wide variety of premises liability claims for clients.

Child Injuries
Among the most devastating experiences that a parent can endure is an accident involving their child. Both the child and their parents may be able to bring claims based on the accident. While the parents can pursue compensation for the medical expenses related to treating the child’s injuries, the child can seek compensation for pain and suffering, along with any future medical expenses and lost earning capacity after they become an adult. The legal issues often are complicated in these cases, so it is critical to consult an Evans Georgia injury lawyer who can navigate the process on your behalf. For instance, the attractive nuisance doctrine in Georgia may permit a child to recover compensation after an accident on somebody else’s property when an adult in a similar situation could not.

Wrongful Death

A family dealing with grief over their loss has legal rights to assert, and the wrongful death lawyers at The Nelson Law Group fight for them.
