Car Accidents – To recover damages in a car accident, you have to prove the other driver was at fault and that your injuries are due to their negligence. You also need to understand the full extent of damages that flow from the accident and be able to present a compelling case for maximum compensation. Marietta car accident lawyer Ryan T. Strickland has the skills and experience to guide you through your accident claim and deal with the insurance company on your behalf. We handle all manner of car accidents, including those caused by drunk or distracted drivers, as well as truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, and more.
Bus Accidents – Whether you are an injured passenger or the driver of another vehicle struck by a city bus, you’ll need to move quickly to preserve your rights to make a claim. Strict procedures and timelines must be followed, and if litigation is required, you’ll find yourself up against powerful city or county governments. The Strickland Firm is with you at every step for the success of your claim.
Rideshare Accidents – What are your rights if you are injured as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft? What if you are driving your vehicle and are struck by a driver carrying passengers for hire? Do you make a claim against the driver’s insurance company or the ridesharing service? The Strickland Firm knows the answers to these questions and will pursue your claim against the proper entities, so your claim for compensation concludes successfully and without undue delay.
Uninsured Drivers – Twelve percent of Georgia drivers are uninsured, making it not unlikely that the driver who hits you won’t have insurance. You can sue the driver directly, or you can make a claim with your insurance company under your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. UM claims pit you against your insurer, so don’t just expect they will take care of you. An experienced car accident lawyer will negotiate a settlement that adequately compensates you for your injuries.
Scooter Accidents – Electric scooter companies have invaded Atlanta, and the resulting rise in injury rates shows how dangerous they can be. One Atlanta hospital alone has been consistently seeing 25 scooter injuries a month, mostly from falls but also from pedestrians injured in scooter collisions. Marietta banned scooters before the companies could get a foothold in the city, but Atlanta continues to grapple the problem.
Hit and Run Accidents – Hit and run crashes, including fatal accidents, are on the rise and increasing at an alarming rate, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. After a hit and run, you can still get compensation for your injuries through your uninsured motorist coverage, but you’ll need a lawyer fighting on your behalf for full compensation.
Slip and Fall – Georgia property owners have a duty to maintain the premises in a safe condition, including warning the public about known dangers and promptly cleaning up spills or fixing other hazards. Your ability to recover compensation from the store owner can depend on your legal status as an invitee or licensee, as well as other complicated issues such as whether the property owner had actual or constructive notice of the danger and a reasonable opportunity to correct it. We understand all the complexities and nuances of Georgia premises liability law, and we’ll help you recover compensation after a slip and fall injury in a Marietta grocery store, restaurant or department store.
Assault Victims – The attacker is ultimately to blame for sexual assaults and attacks, but building owners may bear some responsibility when their lack of basic security features played a role in enabling the attack to occur. Apartment building managers and owners are responsible for keeping common areas adequately lit, including hallways, stairwells and parking garages or carports. In some places, remote access gates and locked entries may be appropriate, as well as security cameras or personnel. Marietta personal injury attorney Ryan Strickland won a huge judgment for an assault victim based on the negligent security failings of the apartment building owner.
Brain and Spinal Injuries – Brain and spinal injuries in a car, truck or motorcycle accident can cause a lifetime of costly and difficult challenges, including cognitive impairments and paralysis. You’ll need an attorney who fully understands all aspects of these injuries and the full measure of the costs involved. The Strickland Firm will fight to achieve maximum compensation for these most severe injuries.
Wrongful Death – Georgia law allows a surviving spouse to recover compensation on behalf of the spouse and minor children when a car accident or other negligence ended in death. Family members are entitled to recover the full value of the life of the deceased. Surviving parents or the personal representative of the estate may also make a claim, and the estate can recover for financial losses and harm suffered by the deceased. These cases are difficult and emotional; The Strickland Firm is here for you with sound advice and professional representation to help you through this time.
