After a car accident in Atlanta, you may think your most pressing financial issue will be medical bills.

Whether you’re driving to the mall to get some Christmas gifts, you’re coming into town to visit family or you’re heading to the airport to catch a flight, traffic in Atlanta during the holiday season is wild, to say the least. Trying to get around the city is only made worse by the fact that public transportation is completely unreliable.
When the Atlanta Braves first moved to Suntrust Stadium in Cobb County, there was a lot of worry about traffic in the area, as well as rideshare costs and wait times. In the first couple of seasons, traveling to and from the stadium was a relatively easy task.
Now, it seems those initial worries were well-founded. This baseball season, trying to get an Uber or Lyft outside of Suntrust Park has become a nightmare. There are reports of people waiting for hours on end for their ride, and some fans have even walked out into the busy roads surrounding the stadium in order to find their ride.
Truck accidents cause devastating injuries that can have lifelong effects. The costs of treating these injuries can be astronomical. Without a way to pay for medical bills, injury victims may be saddled with cumbersome medical debt in addition to a painful recovery period. Those who are injured in a truck accident, therefore, have a strong motivation to hold negligent parties accountable and, thereby, liable for their injury costs and other damages.
But how do most truck accident injury lawyers go about proving negligence? Sometimes, showing that a truck driver or trucking company was negligent is easy, such as pointing to a faulty hitch or a driver under the influence of amphetamines. Other times, establishing negligence in a truck accident case can be incredibly difficult, depending largely on obscure facts of law or prior case rulings.
Anyone who has driven through Atlanta, whether they live in the City or are just visiting, knows how terrible the traffic can be in our City. Highways are congested at just about all hours of the day, and intersections can be incredibly dangerous.
Our Atlanta car accident attorneys have seen firsthand how dangerous these intersections can. Knowing which intersections are most dangerous can help you plan your routes and take extra precautions if you can’t avoid these areas.
Choosing a daycare in Atlanta can be a daunting task. You don’t want to leave your children in a potentially dangerous situation, and trusting reviews on Yelp and other sites can be risky.
As Atlanta daycare injury lawyers, we know these risks all too well. That’s why we want to help you find the best daycare for your child. The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning’s Bright from the Start provides Quality Ratings, with 3 being the highest quality.
Here are some daycares in the Atlanta area which achieved a three star rating, as defined by Bright From The Start, along with maps from the daycare to our offices if anything ever goes wrong and you need to speak with a daycare injury lawyer.
When a parent or guardian drops their child off at daycare, they often do so assuming that the child is in good, trained, and reliable hands. They trust that the people behind the door are professionals with appropriate training. Parents believe that their children will be safe.
Sadly, as Atlanta daycare injury lawyers, we know that this isn’t always the case:
Our Atlanta car accident lawyers know that Uber and Lyft have become increasingly popular in the city and throughout the state. The use of these two services, and others like it, has boomed in the last few years. Just a decade ago, no one uttered “Call an Uber” as often as they do now. Getting in a car with an Uber or a Lyft driver has become more convenient than ever.
They may be popular, but popularity does not negate the risk. They are still vehicles, after all. When you climb into a car driven by someone else, you are essentially putting your life in their hands.
If you are injured in an accident while riding in an Uber or Lyft, you may not be covered. There are obstacles that are unique to the circumstances surrounding this type of accident.
