Get Dedicated Support From An Experienced Evans Personal Injury Lawyer

As much as we try to avoid potentially harmful situations, accidents are a part of life. Sometimes, they’re a result of our own clumsiness – like when we trip over our own shoelaces. Often, though, the culprit is another person’s careless or reckless behavior. In those instances, you have two options: you can either ignore the mistake and pay for your own medical bills, or you can file a personal injury claim against the person or business that caused you harm.

When you choose the latter option, not only are you holding that person (or business) legally and financially responsible for their actions, but you are also making them think twice before causing the same type of harm to others.

Here at Robert T. Homlar P.C., I help individuals in Georgia and beyond pursue injury claims. I understand how to counter the tactics insurance companies use to try to derail such claims. Let me use my extensive experience and dedication to fight for the justice you deserve.

When Defective Products Cause Harm

When you buy a $1 item from a discount store and it breaks on you a few days later, you aren’t all that surprised. However, when a product actually causes you harm, that’s a whole different story. Suddenly, you have to find a way to hold the manufacturer of that product responsible so that they’ll be the ones covering your medical bills, time missed from work, and other expenses caused by the injury.

In Georgia, there are a number of factors that go into getting compensated for a defective product, but the most important question to answer is simply this: “Whose fault was it?” If you and your lawyer can prove that it was, in fact the manufacturer’s fault – not yours – then you can begin to negotiate a fair payout to cover your expenses.

Pursuing Justice After A Loved One’s Death

What makes a death fall under the category of “wrongful”? As far as Georgia law is concerned, a “wrongful death” is one that should have been avoidable. In other words, when someone’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness leads to fatal injuries, you have every right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

As you can imagine, the wrongful death of a spouse or family member can be caused by just about anything. What it all boils down to is proving fault. When you file a wrongful death claim, it’s up to you and your attorney to prove that the cause of your loved one’s death was another person’s error.

Deliberate or not, that mistake cost you and your family a tremendous amount of pain and suffering – not to mention medical bills, funeral expenses and related bills. Getting compensated for those costs may not bring back your loved one, but it can help you get closure and give you a much-needed financial boost to get through this difficult time.

Standing Up For Injury Victims

Product liability and wrongful death are just two of the many types of personal injury claims I take at my practice. Here are a few examples of other injury claims I have successfully handled on behalf of clients throughout eastern Georgia and western South Carolina:

  • Car crashes
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Premises liability cases
  • Slip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect

If you or a loved one has been hurt in any kind of accident that was caused by someone else, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For A Personal Injury Claim?

The statute of limitations is the legal deadline that determines how much time you have to file a lawsuit after an injury. Across states, this deadline varies:

  • Georgia: 2 years
  • South Carolina: 3 years
  • Tennessee: 1 year

These are the general rules, but some claims may have different time limits. That’s why contacting a skilled personal injury attorney swiftly after an injury is vital. I can help you pinpoint the critical deadlines for your case, ensuring you’re aware of the relevant statute of limitations and other rules that could have significant impacts on your claim.

Understanding Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases arise when injuries occur on someone else’s property due to the owner’s negligence. Common types of these cases include:

  • Slip/trip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Elevator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Falling object accidents

These claims can get complex. Having the support of a skilled premises liability attorney can add much-needed clarity to what can be a confusing process. With over 20 years of legal experience, I am ready to guide you and seek the justice you deserve.

What To Know About Negligent Security

Negligent security claims hold property owners accountable when their lack of adequate security measures leads to injuries. Such cases can involve:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Lack of security cameras
  • Insufficient locks
  • Failure to vet visitors and employees properly
  • Not employing enough security guards

If you’ve been harmed by such carelessness, put a negligent security lawyer in your corner who is committed to your well-being. I will work tirelessly to address your concerns and help you pursue fair compensation.
