Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
Unfortunately, elder abuse and negligence in nursing homes happen more frequently than one might imagine. It is a troubling and tragic fact that must in no way be disregarded.
Senior citizens are the most at risk group in society. When their living conditions turn dangerous and it becomes obvious that they cannot survive on their own or defend themselves, they are most likely to feel alone.
However, if issues arise, we might have to entrust assisted living, nursing homes, or long-term care facilities with the care of our loved ones.
We anticipate that the staff at these nursing homes will treat our loved ones with the utmost dedication, care, and compassion. That is the only justification for our decision to entrust them to their care.
Because of this, it is especially heinous when that trust is broken. It influences not only one's own quality of life, but also that of someone they care about.
Dog Bite Injury Cases
In the state of Georgia, the owner of a dog that bites another person is only held liable for the attack if the victim can demonstrate that the owner was aware of the dog's history of aggressive behavior. To put it another way, the victim is required to provide proof that the dog has previously bitten another person. The "one-bite rule" is the name given to this particular theory of liability.
Sadly, in the state of Georgia, the victim must prove that the dog's owner was aware that his pet posed a threat to other people in order to receive compensation for their injuries. Even in cases where the injuries are severe, victims of dog attacks need to have competent legal representation from a dog attack attorney who is well-versed in dog bite law as well as the ordinances that govern dog bites in their area in order to obtain justice.
When conducting a thorough investigation into a case, the Savannah dog bite attorneys at The Brown Firm frequently find evidence of previous attacks or bites on the victim.
Bicycle Accident Lawsuits
In the state of Georgia, motorists and cyclists are held to the same legal standards and requirements. When riding on city streets, cyclists are required to abide by additional rules, such as maintaining a position that is as close to the curb as possible while still ensuring their own safety.
Even if a cyclist takes all of the appropriate safety precautions, there is still the possibility that they will become involved in a bicycle accident. Unfortunately, drivers of larger cars do not always treat other cars with the same respect that they do when they are in their own vehicles.
Those who live in Savannah and have been hurt as a result of a bicycle accident may require assistance in order to pursue the financial compensation that is necessary for their recovery. An attorney in Savannah who specializes in cases involving bicycle accidents might be able to provide this assistance.
Pedestrian Accident Compensation
In Georgia, accidents that involve pedestrians frequently result in serious injuries and fatalities. This is the case throughout the state. In most cases, pedestrians are only permitted to cross the street at designated crosswalks or when there is a flashing light at the intersection. It does not matter if there is a traffic signal at the intersection or not; pedestrians are still required to remain in the crosswalk at all times and keep an eye out for vehicles coming from either direction. Once they have lawfully entered a crosswalk, vehicles and pedestrians are on equal footing in terms of who has the right of way.
It's a sad reality that a lot of motorists think they have the right of way or are just careless. It is possible for a pedestrian to sustain serious injuries or even lose consciousness as a result of the force of the impact. Employ the services of a knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer in Savannah who is able to prove the driver's negligence.

How long does litigation take for personal injury cases?
Depending on your case's specifics. The more difficult it is, the longer it takes to arrange the evidence and conduct negotiations.
Sometimes a lawsuit or trial is not necessary because the insurance company readily accepts a just settlement.
Unfortunately, the majority of the time the plaintiffs' requests are not promptly fulfilled by the insurance companies, and they eventually file a lawsuit.
Our research shows that closing a case typically takes eight to twelve months. However, we cannot assure you of the timeliness of any case.
