When to Seek a Lawyer
Hospitals and healthcare companies have teams of lawyers who immediately review cases which may lead to malpractice. In Georgia, there is a two year limitation on bringing a lawsuit from the time of the injury. It is important that you seek counsel as soon as possible to protect your rights and your case.
When you consult with Carter and Tate about medical malpractice we’ll ask you tell us what happened to you from the first time you visited your doctor through your last contact. What were the circumstances? How did your doctor treat you? Did you follow your doctor's instructions? What happened next? Answers to these and other relevant questions become important if you think your doctor may have committed malpractice.
The bottom line is that a bad result does not necessarily mean malpractice. Medical science is not perfect, and cannot catch everything in time. Until perfection comes along, the best we can expect is medical care that meets the standard
Traffic Related Accidents
It is nearly impossible to drive a lifetime without being involved in a car accident. Insurance companies and their adjusters deal with thousands of auto collisions every year. Their motivation is to make a profit and keep costs down. That means it is not in the insurance company's best interests to help you. You should make sure you are adequately and responsibly represented before negotiating any claim with the insurance company.
It is important when involved in a car collision to make sure a police report is filed, not to give any recorded or written statements to an insurance adjuster, and not to sign anything, especially a medical authorization without first consulting a lawyer. The sooner you seek legal representation, the sooner your rights and your claim will be adequately protected.
Trucking Related Accidents
The most common cause of trucking wrecks is driver fatigue. In many instances, unwritten corporate policies encourage or even force drivers to make long runs with inadequate rest. Trucking companies often carry oversized loads which can lead to instability and loss of control. As a result, people in small passenger cars can be catastrophically injured in an accident.
In handling trucking cases, there are numerous laws, standards, issues and nuances, which must be addressed and analyzed. It is important to retain a law firm experienced in handling these types of cases.
