Proven Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers Stand Up for Victims of Negligence
Experienced Perry accident attorneys fight for full and fair compensation
An injury suffered in an accident can leave you physically disabled, unable to work and faced with high medical bills and other mounting expenses. As you recuperate, you also need to take steps to recover the insurance benefits and other financial compensation you may be due. For 60 years, the attorneys of Daniel Lawson Tuggle & Jerles, L.L.P. have provided strong, aggressive representation for Georgia personal injury victims and their families. Our skilled negotiators and litigators handle claims stemming from auto collisions, slips and falls, dangerous products and other types of injuries.
Assisting with recoveries for all types of auto accidents
Our experienced attorneys help people injured in vehicle crashes negotiate with insurance companies and bring claims against negligent parties to obtain fair compensation for bodily injury, property damage and other harm suffered. We represent victims of:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
Georgia is an at-fault state, which means you can bring a claim directly against the driver whose negligence was primarily the cause of the accident. The recovery of damages will be reduced by the percentage of your own negligence. And if you were 50 percent or more at fault, you cannot recover any damages. Our attorneys are skilled at investigating accidents to determine cause accurately so that we are fully prepared to fight attempts by insurers and defense attorneys to shift the blame to you.
Helping victims of slips and falls and other premises-related accidents
Those who own property have a legal duty to maintain that property and keep in safe condition for guests and others who may be present. When they fail to do so, and someone gets hurt, they may be liable. Our lawyers have successfully handled premises liability cases involving:
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls
- Parking lot accidents and assaults
- Hotel accidents
- Dog bites
Georgia’s comparative negligence rules apply to premises accidents, so it is important to establish that you were not significantly at fault for the accident. This includes proving that your presence on the property was reasonably to be expected, although even a trespasser may recover damages in certain circumstances. Our attorneys will assess whether you have a viable claim for money damages and pursue it aggressively.
Seeking accountability in defective product cases
Manufacturers and distributors of products owe a high standard of care to consumers. Products must be designed, tested, and labeled such that they are safe for their intended use. Manufacturers are strictly liable for injuries caused by their defective products, even without proof of negligence, except in a few special situations. Our skilled attorneys have experience handling all three main types of product defect cases: design defects, manufacturing defects, and warning defects.
Helping families recover damages for wrongful death
Our firm obtains compensation for families who have lost loved ones due to the negligent or reckless actions of others. Whether your loved one died due to a car accident, medical negligence or another cause, our attorneys can advise you about your legal options. A claim must be filed within two years of the date of death and may be pursued by a surviving spouse or child, a surviving parent or the personal representative of the deceased’s estate.
