Canton Personal Injury Lawyer

Injuries Sustained in Canton, GA?

Originally deriving its name from making Canton denim, this city is now the county seat of Cherokee County. Boasting a growing population of about 22,900 people, Canton has a beautifully preserved historic downtown as well as easy access to state parks. Along the Appalachian Trail, there are paths for bike rides and hikes, and opportunities to visit such sites as the Amicalola Falls, the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast. Red Top Mountain State Park is also near, which affords a great spot for fishing, skiing, and swimming. This hospitable community is a thriving area for businesses and families, as well as a great place to visit.

No city is without its troubles; however, as even the drive home from work can turn into a disaster. If there is a texting driver behind you, or if an aggressive driver runs a red light, you could find yourself in a car crash. The injuries you sustain could potentially disable you from work, and leave you with medical and car bills to pay. When you are a loved one are suffering from an accident, then you should not have to pay for another person's negligence. You may be entitled to compensation to cover your medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost wages. At Kalka & Baer LLC we have more than 20 years of legal experience with which we can offer you. Our dedicated Canton personal injury attorneys strive wholeheartedly to win our clients the maximum settlement that they deserve.

Canton Personal Injury Lawyer: Areas of Practice

Accidents can strike at any sudden moment, and unfortunately, they account for tens of thousands of personal injuries and wrongful deaths cases every year. All it can take is stepping onto a deck that is missing nails or is simply not attached correctly, and a deck collapse accident can leave you with serious pain and suffering. This shoddy workmanship can lead to broken bones, cuts and lacerations. It can even cause traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, and damage to the spinal cord. Expensive medical treatments and lengthy therapy are likely to follow if you have found yourself in this situation. If you have been in such as an accident, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim, which holds the property owner responsible for the accident.

If a property owner fails to keep walkways free of debris or clear out safety hazards, slip and fall accidents are another source of catastrophic injuries that can easily occur. Even summer fun can quickly turn into a swimming pool accident if certain measures are not taken by the property owner. Pain killers, ADD medication, and other drugs can cause dangerous side effects due to prescription error. This is just one area of medical malpractice that can leave you suffering from negligence or incompetence from medical professionals. Defective products can also cause injuries and tragic fatalities as well. For example, brake failure may lead to a car crash, or appliances that are broken may end up leaking poisonous substances, such as carbon monoxide fumes into a home.

Have you been in a motorcycle or bike accident in Canton?

Motorcyclists and bicyclists are especially vulnerable in an auto collision. Not only is a motorcycle or bike not as visible to a car driver, but there is virtually no shield against impact. A multi-ton vehicle can barrel into you in a head-on accident, or swerve into you from another lane. There is not even the benefit of an airbag to protect you when slamming into the pavement. If you are in a motorcycle accident, you may suffer from disastrous injuries, such as damage to the soft tissue and bones along your spine. Even if you were wearing a helmet, you could still suffer skull fracture and brain injury. If this is all due to the other driver's negligence, then you may be owed compensation. A skilled motorcycle accident attorney from our firm may be able to prove the other driver is fault. If your motorcycle was hit from behind, it may be easier to prove that the other driver is liable. Rear-end accidents are nearly always the fault of the driver in the back.

Bikes are allowed access to the same roads as car drivers, but an accident will not affect bicyclists the same as a car driver. If a driver is distracted for a moment, he or she can fail to see a bicyclist, or a driver under the influence can lose control of the car. The resulting crash can mean fatal injuries for a bicyclist, or even non-fatal injuries to the brain and spinal cord can occur, causing permanent disability. Roads that are not properly maintained can also cause a dangerous accident. Broken bones are typical injuries sustained in such serious accidents. Even if these are your only injuries, you may have weeks of expensive medical treatment and therapy. If you or a loved one has been in a motorcycle or bike accident, we can work to help you with your injuries.
