• Atlanta Car Accidents

    • Will my Car Accident Case End Up on Trial in an Atlanta Courtroom?

      It could if the insurance company won't settle your accident claim for a fair amount. If you want to receive full accident compensation that covers every expense, don’t be afraid of going to court. Your car accident attorney is not afraid of the courtroom, and we will take your case there if we think it’s in your best interests to do so. Other lawyers are afraid of court; we aren’t.

    • Can I Still File a Claim if I Was a Partially Responsible for Causing My Accident?

      Yes, you can still file a claim if you were responsible for a portion of the negligence that led to the accident. As long as you weren’t the person who was mostly to blame for causing this accident. This comparative negligence law allows you to file a claim and go after the other person for their percentage of fault. Your overall compensation will be less than someone who was 100 percent blameless for their accident, however.

    • How Long is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Car Accident Claim in Atlanta?

      In Georgia, you are given a statute of limitations of up to two years from the date of the accident to file your claim against the at-fault party. Keep in mind that the sooner your start your claim, the better off you’ll be. Evidence you can use to prove your case can be lost over time, and witnesses and police can forget details of the crash. You don’t want to miss your chance to obtain compensation.

    • What If I Can’t Afford a Lawyer?

      Our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee, which means that we won’t get paid until you receive your settlement. You won’t pay out of pocket, either. You’ll instead pay a portion of your compensation, as agreed upon with your lawyer. 

      We even offer free consultations. That gives you a chance to speak with an attorney before you agree to representation. 

    • How Much Time Do I Have to Call an Attorney?

      You should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. Not wasting time allows you to preserve evidence while making sure that you won’t have to wait for a long time before receiving your compensation. 

      It’s important to remember that all personal injury claims in Georgia are subject to a statute of limitations, which means that if more than two years pass from the date of the accident, you won’t be able to file a successful claim. 

    • Why Should I Speak with an Attorney?

      Taking legal action on your own and representing yourself can be tricky after a personal injury takes place. Your legal battle may take a lot of time, especially when negotiating your settlement with the insurance company. Without legal guidance, you may make a mistake that will negatively impact your compensation and your future. 

      An experienced personal injury lawyer has already dealt with similar cases in the past and knows how to negotiate aggressively so you can be compensated quickly. They also have the knowledge necessary to include all damages in your compensation and can speak on your behalf so you don’t get lowballed by adjusters. 

    • Do I Need to See a Doctor?

      You should always schedule a doctor’s appointment if you don’t end up in an emergency room. You may feel fine at the moment, but it’s common for accident victims to experience delayed symptoms, especially if a concussion or any kind of head trauma happened as a result of the collision.

      You should also receive medical attention because it’s the only way to obtain a medical report. This report provides proof of your injuries to insurance companies and potential defendants. Healthcare professionals can also provide a statement to support their version of the facts when you’re unable to work. 

    • Should I Contact Law Enforcement?

      Yes, you should always call the police after a car accident. You’re required to do so by law in the state of Georgia when there are injuries, deaths, or significant property damage. But even in a minor collision, the presence of police officers is crucial to your claim’s success. The police will provide an important piece of evidence: a police report

      This document contains all the information gathered by law enforcement, and it can help you prove who’s at fault. It also demonstrates that an accident took place because of someone’s negligence, so insurance adjusters and the negligent driver can’t deny the existence of this collision.

    • What Should I Do After an Accident?

      In the initial moments following an accident, it’s important to stay calm so you can get to a safe location. Panicking and stopping in the middle of the road can make the situation worse and cause another crash. Once you’re in a safe place, you should check for injuries and assess the damage done to your property if possible. 

      If the other driver isn’t intoxicated or dangerous, you should approach them and exchange basic contact information like names and details about licenses and insurance. It’s also important to start gathering evidence as soon as possible. Remember to always take pictures of the scene of an accident, the surrounding area, your injuries, and all vehicles involved. 

  • Terry's Takes

  • Atlanta Personal Injury

    • How will I pay my Atlanta injury lawyer?
      Your lawyer will not get paid until after you receive a settlement, and they don’t get paid at all if they don’t win your personal injury case. Your lawyer’s fees will come out of the settlement or financial award you receive.
    • Is it possible to get a fair settlement for an accident or should I go to trial?

      It’s possible to get a fair settlement for what you've suffered, but it’s not always easy. Sometimes, it’s necessary to go to court to get the money you’re truly owed for an accident. Insurers don’t like to pay out more than they have to on injury claims, even though they may owe you compensation. Make sure you partner with an experienced attorney who is not afraid to go to court.

    • How long do I have to bring a personal injury claim in Atlanta?

      You have up to two years from the date of the accident to bring your case, but it’s a good idea to start on it as soon as possible. Give yourself time so you won’t be stressed out trying to meet the filing deadline. In addition, evidence is easier for your lawyers to find during the beginning stages of an injury case.

  • Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury

    • What Do I Do if My Child Was Injured in an Accident?

      Injuries endured by a child are some of the most difficult to overcome, as the impact on their life is sure to be lasting. As the child’s parent or legal guardian, they are counting on you to fight for justice. When you don’t know where to turn, we’re here to help.

      Our firm can assist you with navigating the personal injury claims process, answering your questions as completely and honestly as possible, and advocating for your child’s right to financial recovery for all they have been through.

    • How Long Does the Personal Injury Claims Process Take?

      There are many different factors that come into play when determining the timeline of your case. The extent of your injuries, the influence those injuries have had on your life, how cooperative the insurance company is, and how backed up the civil court system is can all contribute to how long it will take to resolve your lawsuit.

      Some cases can be settled in a couple of months, while others could take years. You can be sure that our attorneys will do whatever we can to obtain the compensation you deserve, no matter how long it takes.

    • How Much Will I Be Awarded if We Go to Trial?

      This is a common question among accident survivors and rightfully so. Going to court, or at least the thought of it can be intimidating. You want to know if your efforts will be worth your time and energy when you’ve already lost so much in the accident.

      We can’t give you a number without reviewing your case at length, but we can tell you that you should be made whole for an accident caused by the negligence of another. Every single loss you have endured and every way your life has been negatively impacted by the accident should be considered when calculating the value of your injury claim.

      You will work closely with your lawyer to ensure that no loss — financial, physical, or emotional — go unaccounted for, so you can increase your chances of getting the most out of your claim.

  • Virgin Islands Personal Injury

    • I Was Injured in an Accident — Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

      The single most important factor in determining whether or not you have a personal injury case is determining liability. If you were involved in an accident or injured, you must first determine if the accident or injury occurred as a result of negligence. Negligence is a broad legal term that can encompass everything from distracted driving to medical malpractice. Negligence can include any action or inaction that is careless, reckless, or intentional. If you were injured by a defective product, such as a prescription drug or vehicle, you may have a case under “strict liability.” If you believe that another person or party is at fault for your injuries, you may have a personal injury case. It’s always a good idea to discuss your situation with a knowledgeable attorney who can provide you with honest insight and sound legal counsel.

    • Who Is Responsible for my Injuries in a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

      In contrast to other types of motor vehicle accidents, those involving commercial vehicles tend to be very complex. Depending on the circumstances involved in your unique situation, any number of parties may be liable. These parties can include the driver of the commercial vehicle, the company that owns or leases the commercial vehicle, the manufacturer of the commercial vehicle, and/or others.

    • How Much Is My Case Worth?

      While many people want to know how much their case is worth, it is unfortunately impossible to give an accurate estimate of how much you can expect to recover. There are numerous factors involved, including the extent of your injuries, the number of liable parties, the cost of your medical treatment, property damages, and more. At Fischer Redavid PLLC, we have successfully negotiated fair recoveries for our clients. We are committed to helping you secure the full amount that you are owed for your injuries.

    • Will I Have to Go to Court?

      Not necessarily. In fact, our firm has successfully negotiated just settlements for countless clients without ever having to go to trial. That being said, if the opposing insurance company refuses to settle or offers a low-ball settlement, we are fully prepared to take your case to trial. In every instance, you can rely on our attorneys to act as your advocates and guide you throughout the legal process.

    • How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Case?
      It's impossible for us to give you a definite timeframe without knowing the details of your case. Oftentimes, straightforward cases can be resolved or settled within several months, but more complex cases or cases that are being heavily contested will often require significantly more time (sometimes several years).
    • If I Am Unhappy with My Current Injury Lawyer, Can I Switch Attorneys?
      In most cases, if you are unhappy with your personal injury lawyer, you have the right to terminate your relationship with them and hire a new lawyer. However, it is important that you ensure you did not sign a legal contract obligating you to retain their services.
    • Is My Personal Injury Settlement Taxable?
      Typically, a settlement you receive that is meant to reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury is not taxable. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. If you are concerned about whether or not your settlement will be taxable, you should discuss your situation with a tax professional.
  • Miami Wrongful Death

    • How much does a wrongful death attorney cost?
      Wrongful death attorneys, like those at Fischer Redavid PLLC, provide legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay upfront or out-of-pocket legal fees. Instead, your attorney will only collect legal fees and litigation-related costs if they secure a settlement or verdict on your behalf. At this point, your legal expenses will be paid via a percentage of your total recovery.
    • How long do I have to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Florida?

      The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases in Florida is shorter than the statute of limitations for personal injury cases. Rather than four years, as you would have for a personal injury lawsuit, you only have two years from the date of death to bring your wrongful death claim.

    • How do I know if I have a wrongful death claim?

      If your loved one would have had grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit had they lived, you likely have a wrongful death case. Another way to look at is to ask yourself, was someone else responsible for the incident that led to your loved one’s death? Was someone negligent? Did your loved one pass away due to the wrongful or intentional acts of another? If so, you likely have a claim. If you are still unsure, we recommend that you reach out to an experienced wrongful death attorney, like those at Fischer Redavid PLLC, for a complimentary case evaluation.

  • Miami Truck Accident

    • Why shouldn’t I settle with the truck driver’s insurance company?

      Settling with the driver’s insurance company may be an option for your claim, but it’s rarely your best option. These insurance companies want to protect their own profits—not your health, safety, or financial security. Because of this, they may offer you a lowball settlement. They may not offer you a settlement at all. Instead of playing by their rules, your truck accident attorney can help you file a lawsuit.

    • I lost a loved one in a truck accident. Can my family seek compensation?

      Losing a family member is devastating, and knowing a careless truck driver or negligent trucking company is liable for the incident makes it even tougher to focus on your grief. Fortunately, your family may be eligible for compensation that covers your losses. The liable party can be held financially responsible for the death, so talk to your lawyer about your family’s options for filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

    • I may have been partly at fault for my truck accident. Can I still sue?

      Even if you’re partly at fault, it’s best not to accept that blame. It may seem like a nice thing to do, but the insurance company and defense will take note. They can use your words against you, and they won’t hesitate to do so if it means paying less for your lawsuit. Because you could lose part or all your compensation, talk to your truck accident lawyer before you talk about the fault to the insurance company.

      That being said, you could still be entitled to compensation if you are found to be partly at fault. Under Florida’s pure comparative negligence rule, you can seek compensation for injury-related damages if you were partly at fault for the incident that caused your injuries; however, you cannot recover the full amount you are seeking in compensation. Instead, your recovery will be reduced by your at-fault percentage. So, if you are 30% to blame, you can only recover up to 70% of the total amount of your damages.

  • Miami Slip-and-Fall

    • Is it worth hiring a slip-and-fall attorney?

      It’s essential to consult an attorney as early as possible in the case so that you start right. Going against such defendants on your own is not a good idea because insurers are likely to take advantage of your minimal knowledge of the law. 

      A slip-and-fall lawyer will take away the stress of gathering evidence, keeping up with deadlines, preparing reports, and negotiating with insurance companies, among other burdens that come with filing a claim.

    • Why did the insurance company deny my slip-and-fall claim?

      An insurance company may give one or more reasons for denying your claim, including lack of sufficient evidence supporting fault or your injuries, administrative errors when filing, the expired statute of limitations, asking for too much, and so on. A slip-and-fall lawyer can help you appeal this decision so that you’re not a victim twice. 

    • Can I sue for a slip-and-fall injury if I was partly at fault?

      You can still file a lawsuit even if you were partially at fault. According to the state’s comparative negligence laws, victims who are somehow responsible for their injuries can receive compensation that’s less than the percentage of fault contributed. Even so, your lawyer will still focus on maximizing the settlement you’re due. 

  • Miami Civil Rights

    • If a federal building isn’t reasonably accessible to people with disabilities, can I sue?
      If a state building isn’t compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), you may have grounds for a lawsuit. You should have the same access to needed facilities as a person without disabilities, and filing a lawsuit can help you get justice and reasonable accommodations. Your lawyer can review the specifics of your case and help you determine whether you have a case.
    • Is there a time limit to my claim?

      The details of your civil rights claim will change the time limits you face for a civil rights lawsuit. For example, if you’re filing a claim for discrimination under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), you may only have 180 days to file a claim. Other claim types may be different.

      One thing does stay the same—you need to speak with your lawyer as soon as possible after the civil rights abuse. Your lawyer can help you take advantage of the time you have and file a strong case.

    • How do I file a civil rights complaint?

      When filing a civil rights complaint, you’ll need to first gather information about your case for your lawyer. Once you’ve determined that you are eligible for a lawsuit, your lawyer will help you file the right forms and paperwork for your case.

  • Miami Car Accident

    • My child was seriously injured while riding in a defective car seat. Can I sue?

      When a child is injured because of a car seat defect, you may have grounds for a product liability lawsuit. Families shouldn’t have to needlessly suffer at the hands of a careless manufacturer, especially a car seat maker that is supposed to protect children riding in cars. 

      However, you’ll have a limited amount of time to pursue legal action. The product liability statute of limitations in Florida extends four years from the date of the injury. In the cases of wrongful death, the statute is shorter, at two years. Reach out to a lawyer to take action within these time limits. 

    • If I’m involved in an autonomous driving accident in Miami, who’s liable?

      Companies like Tesla have created autonomous vehicles with the capability of driving without a driver’s input. However, the technology is still new and therefore there is some risk associated with them.

      There are several parties who could be held liable in an autonomous driving accident, depending on the circumstances of your wreck. The following is a sample of the possible at-fault parties:

      • The manufacturer of the automated driver assistance system (design defect)
      • The manufacturer of the car or vehicle (products liability)
      • The manufacturer of any components used to build or repair the vehicle, such as brakes or engines (supplier liability)
      • The dealer who sold the car to you (dealer liability)
    • What if I’m injured in a rideshare accident?

      Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft are required to carry liability insurance. For example, Uber has a $1 million liability insurance policy in place for passengers, other drivers, bicycle riders, and pedestrians. If there’s more than one person injured in the accident, then each injured person may receive $1 million (capped at $10 million total) under Uber’s policy.

      The $1 million liability insurance applies when the driver is on the app and has passengers. If the driver is on the app but doesn’t have passengers riding with him or her, then that driver’s personal insurance policy kicks in. 

    • What happens if I’m in a car accident with a commercial vehicle?

      Sadly, many victims of commercial vehicles suffer from long-term pain or disability. The sheer size of large commercial trucks like 18-wheelers can cause horrific injuries for others in passenger cars. In addition to physical injuries, many people also experience severe emotional trauma and even PTSD.

      Insurance companies often try to blame the victim for the crash as part of their defense strategy. They may also argue that they don’t owe you for any significant damages because you weren’t directly hit by the truck or bus but rather were rear-ended by one or more other cars involved in the accident. 

      These assertions from insurers sometimes make claims difficult, but not impossible, to prove in court. Fortunately, several layers of insurance are often available. Our lawyers know the nuances of commercial vehicle and trucking laws as well as how to work these types of cases, whether that’s seeking an insurance settlement or filing a lawsuit. 

    • Should I get a lawyer for a car accident that was my fault in Florida?

      If you want to seek compensation for an accident that was partially your fault, then yes, you will want to retain a good personal injury law firm as soon as possible. The amount of fault you are responsible for can proportionately decrease the amount of compensation you receive, making it imperative to get an attorney to provide legal representation for your case as soon as possible.

    • How long do you have to get a lawyer after a car accident in Florida?

      In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, which includes car accidents, is four years from the date of the injury. While this sounds like a long time, you'll want to get your accident lawyers involved as soon as possible as building a strong case is easiest while the evidence and witness testimony are still fresh. This becomes increasingly difficult as more and more time passes. After four years have passed, you will have missed your window for bringing a personal injury claim.

    • How much can someone sue for after a car accident in Florida?

      If you intend to take your personal injury claim to a Florida circuit court (which is the most common situation), then your damages must exceed at least $30,000. There is no upper limit to how much compensation you can seek to recover in your lawsuit, but this will likely be constrained by the policy limits of the liable party's insurance company.

  • Miami Personal Injury

    • Is proving medical malpractice more difficult than in other personal injury cases?
      Yes, it is often substantially more challenging to prove negligence in medical malpractice than in something like a car or motorcycle accident. Your injury lawyers will likely need to call on medical experts as expert witnesses and thoroughly demonstrate how the medical care you received was not in line with the care that would have been prescribed by a reasonable medical practitioner.
    • My child was injured in an accident. Can I sue for what they’ve suffered?

      Your child’s health and safety are the top priority for your family, but someone else hurt them. Now, you’re concerned about their financial and physical recovery, not to mention the medical bills that will follow. Your loved one can’t sue on their own until they’re 18. Although the statute of limitations for personal injury claims doesn’t begin until that point, you do have a chance to act now on your child’s behalf. Talk to our experienced personal injury legal consultants about acting as a guardian in the courtroom to seek your child’s compensation when it’s rightly needed.

    • Do I really need a Miami personal injury attorney?

      When you’re hurt, your whole life is affected by the aftermath of the accident. Your work life and your home life are in turmoil, and your health is on the line, too. Balancing a legal claim and your recovery isn’t easy. Especially when the at-fault party and their insurance company are trying to pin some of the blame on you, which is common. If you’ve never filed an accident or personal injury claim before, you won’t know what to expect or how to avoid common roadblocks. A personal injury lawyer has years of legal experience. They can walk you through each step and represent you in court if necessary.

    • How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?

      Your window of time to file a personal injury lawsuit in Miami is limited. You’ll need to protect your legal rights and file your claim within four years of the accident or injury diagnosis. Although that seems like plenty of time, building a strong injury claim doesn’t happen overnight, making it imperative to contact our lawyers right away.

  • Hollywood Personal Injury

    • How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
      Personal injury lawyers, including ours at Fischer Redavid PLLC, provide their legal services on a contingency fee basis. In other words, our legal fees are contingent upon us winning your case. Once we have recovered a settlement or verdict for you, our fees are paid via a percentage of your recovery.
    • What if I was partly at fault for the accident or incident that caused my injury?

      If you were partly to blame, you can still recover compensation. Under Florida’s pure comparative fault rule, you can seek compensation for your injury-related damages as long as you can prove that the other party was at least partially at fault. However, the amount you can recover will be reduced by your at-fault percentage. So, for example, if you are found to be 25% to blame for your injury, you can only recover up to 75% of the total amount you are seeking in damages.

    • How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?

      You typically have four years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida court. If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit, or a civil liability lawsuit not based on negligence, you have just two years to bring your claim.

  • Fort Lauderdale Truck Accident

    • How long will it take to settle my truck accident claim?

      The amount of time it will take to resolve your truck accident claim will be dependent on several factors including the extent of your injuries, how considerable your losses are, how long the investigation takes, the amount of time it takes to gather evidence and expert testimony, how long the negotiations with the insurance company last, and how backed up the civil court system is in Fort Lauderdale. 

      Depending on the circumstances of your case, it could take as few as a couple of months or as much as a few years to resolve your case. But we aren’t going to stop until we have done everything possible to maximize your injury settlement. 

    • Will I have to go to court to obtain an injury settlement?

      To get compensation that adequately reflects your damages, heading to trial may be the best option. It is possible to obtain a settlement from the insurance company that will meet your needs, but unlikely. The insurer is not on your side and will be doing everything possible to minimize the amount they will need to pay out. 

      Rather than settle for less than you deserve, we could bring your case to trial and if we win, the insurance company could be compelled to compensate you beyond what they would have if they had handled your case fairly in negotiations.

    • What are punitive damages?

      Punitive damages are awarded by the jury and/or judge when the person or persons who are to blame for your injuries were intending to cause harm or their actions were reprehensible. 

      Punitive damages are awarded above and beyond the value of your economic and non-economic damages and are the court’s way of punishing the liable party for their actions. Ultimately, the goal is to send a message that these behaviors will not be tolerated by the Fort Lauderdale civil court system. 

  • Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident

    • How much is my Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident claim worth?

      It’s difficult to say what your claim could be worth without reviewing the individual details of your case. But, we can ensure that every loss is accounted for so you can maximize your payout. Some of the various losses that might be sought after could include:

      • Pain and suffering
      • Lost wages
      • Medical care
      • Medical equipment costs
      • Emotional distress
      • Diminished quality of life
      • Loss of companionship and love
      • Property damage
    • Can I sue if my passenger caused the Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident?

      When your passenger is responsible for causing your Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident, your lawsuit will need to be handled delicately. After all, your passenger was probably a close friend or family member. You will likely want to maintain that relationship, despite the accident. 

      However, a personal relationship with the person responsible for causing your accident doesn’t mean they escape culpability. If we are able to take on your case, we’ll work diligently to handle your case with care so you can be compensated accordingly while retaining your relationship 

    • How much time do I have to file a claim?

      Florida has a statute of limitations that provides Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident survivors with up to four years to file injury claims. 

      This is one of the most victim-friendly statutes of limitations in the country, and though four years may seem like plenty of time to file a lawsuit, the sooner you get started on your case, the sooner you could be awarded compensation for your suffering. Remember, if you miss this critical deadline, you will no longer have the opportunity to hold the liable party accountable in Fort Lauderdale civil courts.

  • Fort Lauderdale Car Accident

    • My child was injured in the car accident. What can I do?

      When a child is injured, the sense of injustice can feel overwhelming. Although they can’t file an injury claim until they turn eighteen, their parent or guardian can file a claim on their behalf. Talk to your Fort Lauderdale car accident attorney for help understanding child injury claims.

    • I can’t afford a lawyer. What are my options?

      Most accident survivors can’t, and it’s important to know that you aren’t alone. After already having suffered considerable financial losses, being unable to afford a lawyer to handle your case is nothing to be ashamed of. We work with injury victims on a contingency basis, which means we don’t require any money down. 

      We’ll cover the legal costs and expenses that come with litigating car accident lawsuits in Fort Lauderdale for you. If we win our attorney's fees will come out of your settlement.

    • Can I get my medical expenses covered if I go to trial?

      Absolutely. The insurance company will be responsible for your medical expenses, at least up to the limits of your auto insurance policy. 

      If you go to trial, your lawyer will ensure that every past, current, and future medical cost as they relate to your car accident is considered when calculating the value of your lawsuit.

    • Do I file a claim with my insurance company or the other driver’s?

      You will file an insurance claim with your own auto insurance company after your car accident. Florida is a fault state for car accidents, so you are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) coverage as part of your auto insurance policy. 

      This coverage means your insurer has an obligation to cover certain losses when you are involved in a collision. But, insurers are rarely fair when it comes to victim compensation. 

  • Atlanta Truck Accidents

    • How long do I have to bring a truck accident claim in Atlanta?

      In Georgia, injury victims are given up to two years to bring their claims, starting on the day of the accident. It’s important you don’t wait until your two years are almost up. You don’t want to miss out on the chance to get the money owed to you.

    • Will my truck accident case be fought in court?

      Your truck accident case could be taken to court. Our firm believes in getting clients the money they actually deserve, not a low settlement that won’t cover anything. Your lawyer at our firm is not afraid to go to court when necessary to win full compensation.

    • Can more than one person be liable for an Atlanta truck accident?

      Yes, more than one person or party can be liable for playing a role in causing an accident. For example, a truck driver and a trucking company can both be liable for your accident and damages. Say the trucking company didn’t provide adequate training to the driver. They could be responsible in that instance. 

  • Atlanta Motorcycle Accidents

    • Can I sue for a motorcycle accident if I was partially to blame?

      Yes, you probably can still sue for a motorcycle accident in Atlanta, even if you were partially at fault for the accident. As long as you were not the person who was mostly responsible for bringing about the accident, you should still be able to go after others who caused the accident for the role they played.

    • Will my Atlanta motorcycle accident case go to trial?

    • How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

      Personal injury lawyers, including those at Fischer Redavid PLLC, provide most legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay upfront or out-of-pocket expenses when you hire a lawyer. Instead, your lawyer will recover fees and other litigation-related costs as a percentage of your overall recovery, whether a settlement or verdict. This means that, if you do not receive a settlement or verdict in your favor, you do not have to pay your attorney.

    • Do I need to hire a personal injury lawyer?

      You are not required to hire a personal injury lawyer to resolve your case—but there are many reasons to consider doing so. Navigating the legal process can be extremely confusing, time-consuming, and stressful without the help of a skilled and experienced attorney. When you work with the legal team at Fischer Redavid PLLC, you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery while we handle the details of your case.

    • How much is my claim worth?

      Unfortunately, it is impossible to determine the exact value of your personal injury claim without first reviewing the various unique factors involved. Everything from the severity of your injuries to the cost of your medical care to the degree of fault you had (if any) in causing the incident that led to your injury can all play a role in how much your claim could be worth.

      We recommend that you schedule a complimentary consultation with our personal injury team to discuss the specifics of your case. Our attorneys can review the details and provide more in-depth and personalized information regarding your legal options and the potential value of your case.

    • What do I need to prove to be successful in my personal injury case?

      Proving your case is critical, as plaintiffs (the people or parties who file the claims) have the burden of proof in personal injury cases.

      To have a case, you must first prove that you were injured. An “injury” can be physical or psychological in nature, meaning you do not necessarily need to have suffered a bodily injury to have a case. Next, you must prove that your injury led to measurable damages for which you can be compensated. Examples of common damages include economic losses, like medical expenses and lost income, as well as noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. You will also likely need to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a legal obligation to take certain actions and/or avoid certain actions to prevent foreseeable injury, and that the defendant failed to uphold this duty of care, most often by acting negligently or wrongfully. Lastly, you will likely need to demonstrate how the defendant’s conduct was the proximate cause of your injury and resulting damages.
