Types of Injuries
Injured? Our Dedicated Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Can Help!
If you have been injured because of another individual's negligence, you may have a personal injury claim. Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Buckley Beal can work with you to gather evidence and establish liability in your case. We have more than 85 years of combined legal experience and have a record of success, including multi-million-dollar settlements, in helping our clients receive the compensation they deserve.
We welcome cases involving a wide variety of injuries, including those involving:
Motor vehicle accidents: A large number of personal injuries stem from
motor vehicle accidents. Even at low speeds, motorcycle, car and truck collisions can cause extensive damage to both occupants and pedestrians. With injuries ranging from whiplash and bruises to more serious concussions and internal organ damage, medical treatment costs resulting from motor vehicle accidents can quickly skyrocket. Personal injury claims can help compensate individuals for these expenses and other damages they may incur.
- Slip and fall accidents: Often occurring in public places or on another individual's property, slip and fall accidents can also result in a number of personal injuries. These types of incidents fall under premises liability claims since the owner of the premises or property can be held legally responsible. If you have been injured due to the negligence of a property owner, allow our team of personal injury attorneys to assist you.
- Work-related injuries: As their name states, these types of injuries occur when an employee is hurt on the job. While more common in certain industries such as construction, these accidents can happen almost anywhere. Physical injuries, including lacerations or burns, fall under this category, as do work-related illnesses. Individuals may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
- Medical malpractice: Often the result of incompetent treatment from a doctor or medical provider, medical malpractice injuries can include damages such as physical or mental pain, higher medical bills, or lost work time. Patients who are simply unhappy with medical treatment may not be eligible to pursue a medical malpractice case. Individuals must prove the medical professional was both negligent and that his or her negligence resulted in damage to the individual.
- Toxic exposure: Individuals who are exposed to chemicals in the air, water, food, products or in soil may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim. Although toxic exposure cases can be difficult to prove, requiring extensive scientific data, the injuries sustained can be debilitating. Cases can involve toxins ranging from mold in the home, to asbestos exposure or pesticides in foods.
