Were you in a car accident in Kennesaw?

According to various research, the average commute to work for Kennesaw residents is between 30 and 35 minutes. It could only be a matter of a few minutes on the road before you find yourself in a multi-vehicle accident. The violent impact may cause soft tissue damage, and even result in painful injuries such as whiplash. All it takes is for someone to be texting while they drive, and you could find yourself in the hospital with catastrophic injuries. If your car has malfunctioning parts, you might be in a single vehicle crash. In the event of a rollover, you may even sustain further injuries from roof crush. Neither rollover accidents nor roof collapse is supposed to happen. These both point to defects in manufacturing, and you may be able to file an auto product liability claim. We can provide the help you need with your case if you have been in a bus accident or trucking accident as well.

Serious Casualties on the Road: Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents

There are thousands of motorcyclist fatalities every year in the U.S. When motorcyclists get into a crash, there is nothing shielding them from the impact with a car and the pavement. Broken bones, especially in the shoulder and pelvis area, can occur in these accidents. "Biker's arm" is another serious injury that can leave your arm permanently paralyzed. Skidding on the asphalt could leave you with soft tissue damage, also known as road rash. Traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage are severe, and sometimes fatal injuries. You could suffer these serious injuries if a tired or distracted driver rear-ends you. If someone makes a turn, or swerves out of the way of debris without looking, you might be in a side-impact crash. Especially on winding highways with two lanes, you could find yourself in a head-on collision. If you have to veer away from an oncoming car, you could crash into trees, parked vehicles, and other obstacles. The statistics for motorcycle accidents are grim, even with a helmet on. If you or someone you know has been in such a crash, then you likely need to pursue compensation to help you through this time.

Bicycle accidents are similarly dangerous, as the rider is just as vulnerable. Any mistake on the driver's part, and this can send a multi-ton vehicle ramming into a bicyclist. Broken bones, spinal cord damage, concussions, and skull fractures are all possible. Someone riding a bike also has less ability to make a quick stop if a sudden obstacle or pothole appears. Catastrophic injuries can be sustained, and in many motorcycle and bicycle accidents, tragic death can occur. If someone else's negligence is responsible for your injuries, then you should not be the one left to pay for medical expenses. If you have lost a loved one, then you may deserve compensation to cover the medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of companionship, and perhaps more.

Compensation for Your Personal Injuries

Serious accidents can hit even closer to home. Enjoying your summer can suddenly turn into a swimming pool accident. Simply visiting someone's deck can result in injuries if the deck is not securely attached or is improperly constructed. If the deck falls apart under you, then you could face broken bones, cuts, and bruises, or even concussions and spinal cord damage. This deck collapse accident is may very likely be the fault of the property owner. Another premises liability case can occur when a property owner is responsible for slippery pathways or debris that cause a slip and fall. You may be able to seek a full settlement for your injuries in this type of case, but without this, you could be footing the bill for expensive medical treatment and lengthy therapy.

If someone else is at fault, then you may be able to get compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim. If you get the full amount, this can mean some level of physical as well as financial recovery, allowing you to move forward in life. If your claim is denied, or you accept a low offer, then your financial future may look bleak. Retain the successful personal injury lawyer that you deserve. The right legal representation can make all the difference.
