Types of Injury Cases We Handle

Atlanta Car Accident Attorneys
Fighting for Injured Individuals Across Tucker

Unfortunately, traffic accidents are common occurrences, especially in large metropolitan areas like Atlanta. Almost everyone has either been in an auto accident or knows someone who has gone through this frightening experience. Injuries from car accidents can take a devastating toll, putting you out of work while in pain and facing all of the expenses associated with such an event. Seeking fair and just compensation from an insurance company may seem like the easy answer, but those companies are never fully on your side.

In the wake of any car accident, you need a tough, experienced car accident attorney to fight for your best interests, which are never the best interests of an insurance company. At Buddoo and Associates, P.C., that is what we do and have done for our injured clients since 2003. Our Atlanta car accident lawyers have handled all kinds of accident cases, both large and small. We have negotiated satisfactory settlements and taken many cases to court. We can pursue the best possible outcome for you through thorough investigation and preparation, building your case for any eventuality.

Pursue Compensation for Your Car Accident Case
You may be entitled to pursue fair and just compensation for your damages, such as:
• Damage to your vehicle resulting from the accident
• Physical injuries resulting from the accident
• Lost wages due to time missed from work
• Medical expenses that are a result of the accident
• Long-term pain and suffering due to injuries received in the accident
When seeking these damages, insurance companies will be quick to try to settle the case for the smallest amount possible and will try to persuade you to avoid the services of a law firm to fight for that compensation. Though the insurance company will try to convince you that they have your best interests as their primary concern, their profitability demands that they pay you as little as possible.

Persuading you to take a quick settlement is their top priority. Due to this and the large teams of attorneys backing them up, the assistance of an Atlanta car accident lawyer from Buddoo and Associates, P.C. is indispensable to your claim.

How Can a Car Accident Attorney Help Me?
Having a competent car accident lawyer on your side is the most important step when dealing with the legal process after a car accident. An attorney can help you through each step of the process and be your guide toward full financial recovery. Here are some ways our firm’s Atlanta car accident lawyer can be the assistant you need during this difficult time:

Investigating Your Case
As soon as you begin working with our team, we will start researching your case. This may involve conducting a full investigation of the scene of the accident and analyzing your medical records. Although every person’s case will look slightly different and require a unique approach, our team utilizes a method that has resulted in substantial success for past accident victims.

There are ways that you can assist with the investigation. We suggest taking the following initiatives to improve the opportunity of a successful case:
• Take photos of the accident before you leave the scene if you are able
• Obtain contact information of any witnesses of the accident
• Keep copies of your medical records
• Maintain a journal of your injuries, doctor visits, and all of your losses related to your case.

Calculating the Damages
In every successful personal injury case, damages are obtained on behalf of the plaintiff who has been injured or lost a loved one. There are two types of damages that we can pursue after you have lost damages in a personal injury case:
• Economic damages - including lost wages, car repairs, etc.
• Non-economic damages - any losses that don’t involve financial costs, such as pain and suffering.

Creating an Injury Claim for Your Damages
An injury attorney can also assist by helping you seek what you actually deserve and are owed from the liable party’s insurance company. We can help you build a comprehensive claim and pursue your best interest.

In the wake of your car accident injuries, we can get to work investigating, gathering, and preserving evidence, documenting your injuries, and engaging in all of the legal methods and tools for building a compelling case in seeking a fair settlement or taking your claim to court.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Atlanta
Holding Negligent Motorists Across Tucker Accountable
Cases involving injuries to motorcycle riders require the attention of vehicle accident lawyers who understand the often-complex nature of motorcycle accidents. Motorcycling is very popular in Atlanta, and the number of riders grows every day. Though Atlanta’s well-maintained roads are very inviting to a motorcyclist, riders frequently encounter many other types of vehicles, and all of these vehicles have the potential to do harm to the motorcyclist.

Were You Injured by the Driver of a Car or Truck?
The sad fact is that most motorcycle accidents are caused by the driver of a passenger car that either does not see or fails to yield the right of way to the motorcycle rider. According to the findings in the Hurt Report, almost 75 percent of motorcycle accidents involve a collision with another vehicle, and most of these were passenger vehicles.

The report goes on to state that, in most of the motorcycle accidents researched in this comprehensive study, it was the automobile driver’s failure to see or recognize the motorcyclist that led to the accident, that most common motorcycle accidents involve the failure to yield the right of way and often occur at intersections, and that 98 percent of all collisions involving motorcycles result in injury to the rider.

Motorcycle accidents, regardless of the protective gear worn by the motorcyclist, put riders at a much greater risk of serious injury. Atlanta roadways—with wide thoroughfares and heavy passenger and commercial traffic—and the popularity of motorcycling, can present challenges in uncovering the true cause of a motorcycle accident. The lawyers at Buddoo and Associates, P.C. are adept at navigating the complex issues that can lead to a motorcycle accident and can work diligently for a successful outcome to your injury case.

Truck Accident Attorneys in Atlanta
Helping Clients Across Tucker Recover Maximum Compensation

The truck accident attorneys at Buddoo and Associates, P.C. understand that Atlanta’s status as a transportation hub and its well-documented traffic congestion often bring passenger vehicles into close contact with large commercial trucks. Motor vehicle accidents involving large trucks can be devastating to passenger cars, usually resulting in major damage to the vehicle and serious injury to the occupants. Truck drivers have very demanding schedules, and as the number of hours they spend on the road increases, so do the chances that they will be involved in an accident.

To learn more about your situation, call Buddoo and Associates, P.C. today at (404) 800-3755 to schedule a free initial consultation with our truck accident lawyers in Atlanta.

Determining Your Commercial Vehicle Accident Settlement
If you’ve suffered an injury in a truck accident case, your primary concern is likely how much you will be able to settle the case for. There are a number of factors that will be factored into the value of your settlement in a commercial truck accident case. They include:
• Liability - Who is at fault in this case? There could be a number of players, including the truck driver, the trucking company, or the maintenance company.
• Property Damage - If your vehicle was hit by a semitruck, it will likely be totaled. In that case, you will likely receive the blue book value of your car during the process.
• Cost of Medical Expenses - The cost of your medical bills associated with the accident will also be considered. There is no guaranteed amount that you will receive for these damages, it will heavily depend on the treatment you received and the costs you accrued.
• Lost Wages - In many truck accident cases, the victim suffers substantial injury and other damages, which results in an impaired earning capacity and loss of wages. You can be compensated for the hours missed at work as well as future losses related to your paycheck.
• Pain and Suffering - An appropriate amount for the pain and suffering you undergo will also be taken into consideration as “noneconomic damages.” In addition, if you are the provider of the family, your attorney will also take your amount of loss into consideration.

Please Do Not Accept a Lower Settlement Than You Deserve
In any accident involving a large truck, the one thing you can rely on is that the truck driver’s insurance company, their employer, and their employer’s insurance company will waste no time trying to reach a quick settlement for any injury claims resulting from the accident. They will ask victims to make a statement regarding the specifics of the accident and then put their heads together to try to find some legal way to deny the claim.

Too often, injured parties accept these early settlement offers only to find out later that their injuries are more severe than they first appeared, or that their medical bills exceed the amount of compensation they received in the settlement. Our accident lawyers focus on the needs of the client. We defend injured victims against powerful and well-funded trucking and insurance companies.

We Spare No Effort in Seeking the Maximum Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents involving large trucks require special attention in order to ensure that the full spectrum of injuries to the victim and damage to their property are taken into account when any settlement offer is considered. If the settlement offered is not fair enough to compensate a victim, the case must go to court for litigation and the situation becomes even more complex.

The trucking accident lawyer you choose must be able to skillfully navigate the obstacles that the attorneys representing the negligent party will place between the victim and their fair and just compensation.

Some common examples of truck driver negligence include:
• Driver fatigue
• Operating the vehicle in an unsafe manner
• Poor vehicle maintenance
• Non-adherence to DOT regulations regarding safety equipment and practices
• Driver distraction or careless operation of the vehicle
It is not always easy to prove negligence in these types of accidents, and it will take the skills of an experienced truck accident attorney to help you to recover damages from a collision with a large truck.

Georgia Trucking Regulations
Experts contend that Georgia regulations regarding the ownership and operation of a trucking company need to be tougher. The current regulations allow an individual to start a trucking company with a small fee and online registration, allow the trucks to be on the road for up to a year-and-a-half before a safety review, and allow trucking companies accused of safety violations to simply shut down and re-open under a different name. Due to these soft regulations, Atlanta drivers face a serious risk of injury from trucking accidents.

Long-Term Effects of Broken Bones

A fracture, compared to a broken bone, is not just a one-time event. The discomfort can linger and it can cause substantial frustrations to your life. It will likely be an injury that you have to return to and of which you have to handle the aftereffects. After your bone has healed, a number of complications might continue to trouble you, depending on the severity of your injury and the care you received afterward.

These complications include the following:

Bacteria may settle into the crevice between your displaced bones.

Your surrounding nerves and blood vessels may also suffer long-term damage.

Arthritis may result years later.

A serious injury is a traumatic event. In order to provide for yourself and your family after such an injury, you will need fair financial compensation. The entire staff at Buddoo and Associates, P.C. is dedicated to making sure you get this compensation.
