Getting legal help when you fall victim to another person’s neglect or misconduct can be difficult, especially if you are a person of color, formerly incarcerated, or economically disadvantaged. Big law firms on Peachtree Street in Atlanta often don’t make clients from underserved communities a priority, so you don’t get the personal attention you need and deserve.
At The Paul Howard Law Firm, we know your name. We treat all cases with the same level of care and dedication. Whether it’s a car accident, medical malpractice, or nursing home abuse, we are here to represent you and win your case. Our goal is to provide you with proper legal counsel, hold the at-fault party accountable, and help you obtain the appropriate compensation for your damages
Have you been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault? The first thing you should do is to contact a personal injury lawyer. Don’t let the at-fault party’s insurance company try and get you to agree to an unfair settlement. They know how badly you need money, and they will try to take advantage of your situation. Once you agree to their offer, you won’t have a chance to recover all your losses.
Let us help you file a lawsuit and hold the wrongdoer accountable. We will take care of everything—from collecting evidence and investigating the accident to finding expert witnesses and representing you in court—so you can focus on your recovery. If you decide to resolve it outside the courtroom, we will help you negotiate with the insurance company’s lawyers to reach a favorable settlement.
Trust is the key to your treatment’s success. Whether the procedure is as simple as a flu shot or as complicated as surgery, you trust your doctor to perform the procedure correctly. Unfortunately, not all treatments end well. Some cause severe side effects, while others lead to death.
Some of these unsuccessful and life-altering treatments stem from malpractice, which includes misdiagnosis, improper use of tools, unsafe drug administration, among others. Any hospital or medical professional can be charged with medical malpractice if their mistake has led to injury or death because they failed to meet the appropriate standard of care. Regardless of the reason, we’ll help you file for—and win—a medical malpractice case to obtain the compensation you deserve.
Finding out that you’ve lost your unborn child or that your baby will grow up with a lifelong disability because of someone else’s neglect is a traumatic experience. There are no words to describe the emotional trauma that it inflicts upon you and your family. It only stands to reason, then, that the person at fault must take responsibility.
Birth injury may result from any or a combination of different types of mishaps, including slip and fall, wrong prescriptions, car accidents, and medical malpractice. Whatever the cause may be, the irreversible damage inflicted on your nerves and reproductive system can lead to a lifetime of expensive medical treatments. We provide you with all the legal assistance you need to seek the justice you deserve. With our expertise, you’ll collect the compensation you need for present and future treatments for both yourself and your child.
Nursing Home and Rehab Center Abuse
Nursing homes and rehabilitation centers are supposed to be a welcome haven for the elderly and recovering loved ones. But if the place where you expect to be treated with dignity and respect becomes a source of physical, emotional, and mental trauma, it’s time to lawyer up. You can find a reliable ally in The Paul Howard Law Firm.
In Atlanta, where seniors represent 10% of the population, the growing number of retirees can also mean an increased risk of neglect in retirement homes due to overcrowding. Get the legal support you need to protect your loved ones from mistreatment, abuse, or injury. See that you get the proper legal assistance when your loved one falls victim to nursing home and rehab center abuse.
Colliding with a speeding truck is every motorist’s nightmare. Enormous and high-powered commercial trucks like 18-wheelers can easily inflict fatal damage on smaller vehicles during a fender bender. Because of their vehicles’ sheer size and the nature of their business, trucking companies are required by law to carry additional insurance. They anticipate accidents like what you’ve been through and should ideally have the money to pay for your suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.
But what if their offer barely covers the total amount of damages incurred? If you or your passengers have been injured in a truck accident, you have the right to charge the trucking company with personal injury. At The Paul Howard Law Firm, we’ll make sure that they’re held accountable for their negligence.
Motorcycles only make up 3% of all registered vehicles in Georgia. However, the fatality rate of riding a bike is 27 times higher than that of driving a typical subcompact vehicle, and it’s easy to understand why. Apart from being ten times smaller than a car, motorcycles also lack many safety features. Despite that, they are allowed to travel alongside larger vehicles on busy roads.
That said, no motorist is excused from taking extra care when traveling alongside a biker. If another vehicle hits you as it changes lanes without warning, tailgates you, or runs a stop sign, contact us. We’d be more than eager to help you file a personal injury case. With too little protection, you can sustain severe injuries such as road rash, broken ankles, and paralysis–even from a simple slide. Let’s pursue the at-fault party and have them pay for the damages.
