Our Practice Areas
Chris Hudson Law Group represents clients in various personal injury cases involving:
- Brain injuries – Any type of injury to the brain can interfere with its normal functioning and limit a person’s physical and mental abilities. Brain injuries can cause serious pain and take some time to heal. Traumatic events, such as car crashes, falls, and abuse, can lead to a brain injury.
- Car accidents – Car accidents typically result from driver error and inattention. If another driver causes your injuries in a crash, you could pursue a claim with their auto insurance company for compensation.
- Workers’ compensation – State law requires employers with at least three employees to provide workers’ compensation coverage. If you suffer an on-the-job injury or illness, you could receive benefits to pay for necessary medical treatment and replace a percentage of your lost wages.
- Bicycle accidents – Designated lanes are often available for bicyclists to separate them from motor vehicles. Unfortunately, a careless driver could drift into the bike lane, sideswiping the rider. Accidents at intersections are also common when motorists don’t yield to bicyclists already in the middle of the intersection.
- Dog bites –A dog can bite down with extreme force, puncturing the skin and damaging muscle, nerves, tissue, and tendons. Anyone who keeps or owns a dangerous or vicious dog and allows it to roam free could be liable for injuries if it bites someone who didn’t provoke it.
- Wrongful death – You could file a wrongful death lawsuit if someone’s negligence caused your loved one’s death. A surviving spouse, child, parent, or executor of the deceased’s estate is eligible to pursue a case against the at-fault party.
- Spinal cord injuries – Damage to the spinal cord can affect sensation, strength, and other bodily functions below the injury site. A severe spinal cord injury can cause chronic pain, a loss of mobility, paralysis, and additional complications.
- Pedestrian accidents – Pedestrians are at risk of debilitating injuries in collisions with motor vehicles. Distracted and inattentive drivers may not see someone crossing the street or walking through a parking lot and hit them with their cars.
- Nursing home abuse – Nursing home staff are responsible for providing medical care to injured residents and assistance with routine tasks when necessary. When a nurse, administrator, or another individual abuses or neglects a resident, serious injuries and even death can occur.
- Truck accidents – Collisions involving commercial trucks typically cause more severe injuries and fatalities to the smaller vehicle’s occupants than to the truck driver. Out of the 4,119 deaths resulting from truck accidents in the U.S. in 2019, only 16 percent were the occupants of large trucks, while 67 percent were passenger vehicle occupants.
- Burn injuries – Fires, motor vehicle crashes, and workplace accidents can lead to burn injuries. Most people require emergency medical care after such an injury. Skin grafting and surgery might also be necessary to repair severe skin, nerve, tendon, and muscle damage.
- Medical malpractice – Medical errors can injure patients and require additional treatment to heal from the error. Although healthcare professionals have the experience and skills necessary to treat their patients, mistakes could cause injuries.
- Motorcycle accidents – Motorcycles are significantly smaller than other vehicles. If drivers aren’t paying attention to their surroundings, they could crash into a motorcyclist while changing lanes or driving through an intersection.
- Defective products – Manufacturers are responsible for providing consumers with products that meet quality and safety standards. An error during the design, manufacturing, or marketing phase places a dangerous product on the market. The manufacturer could be liable for injuries a defective product causes.
Compensation You Can Pursue in a Personal Injury Case
Whether you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, you could receive compensation to cover the losses you suffered from the accident, such as:
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Physical impairment or permanent disability
- Medical expenses
- Diminished quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Property damage
Punitive damages might also be available in a lawsuit. You must prove the defendant acted with wantonness, willful misconduct, entire want of care, fraud, oppression, or malice showing their conscious indifference to consequences to receive this type of compensation.
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
State law requires individuals injured by the negligent actions of another party to file their lawsuits within a specific timeframe following an accident. Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations. That means you must file your lawsuit within two years of the accident date if you want to seek compensation for your losses.
