July 01, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Kenneth S. Nugent, an Atlanta personal injury attorney, has announced that he is offering his services to people in Atlanta, Georgia. He explains that they can help people determine whether their injury was due to the negligence of another person or business entity. Because there are many forms of personal injuries, each injury has to be addressed on a personal level. The Law Offices of Ken Nugent has several professional lawyers on hand to give such personal attention for each client.
Tim Derrickson, spokesperson for The Law Offices of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C., says, “Our law offices are spread across the entire state of Georgia to provide access to clients in the major cities and in the rural areas as well. One primary law office that we have is located in the city of Atlanta. We are ready to accept inquiries from people who believe that they have been injured as a result of negligence of a person or company.”
According to Tim Derrickson, the areas where the personal injury lawyer can help are in medical malpractice, wrongful death, slips & falls, workers’ compensation, and nursing home abuse.
The number of people who have been killed by medical malpractice is an average of more than 1,500 every year, just in the state of Georgia. The medical malpractice lawyers at The Law Offices of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. have represented clients and family members injured due to: errors by the anesthesiologist, physician, nurse, and other health care specialists; surgeon errors; misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and failure to inform; nursing home neglect and abuse; emergency room and hospital negligence; medication errors; serious infections, staph infection, and gangrene; wrongful death; breach of accepted medical standard of care; and failure to follow advanced medical directives and living wills.
Meanwhile, the wrongful death lawyers from the firm can help the families of wrongful death victims to recover compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and other financial obligations that they may have in the future. Wrongful death can be cause by motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, nursing home abuse, unsafe premises, and inadequate or faulty security.
Slip & fall cases, meanwhile, have to do with people slipping or falling in a particular area such as office buildings, restaurants, shopping centers, government buildings, apartment complexes, hotels, or even parking lots or the park. This is because business and property owners and managers are responsible for keeping their property safe from slip and fall accidents. Slip & fall injuries may be due to: objects that have not been stored properly; stairways that are not properly maintained; parking lots that are not well lit; wet floors that are not marked; ice and snow that has not been removed; elevators and escalators that do not work; and construction areas that are not protected.
The workers’ compensation attorney helps employees who have been injured at work. Such employees are often unable to work while they are healing. Workers’ compensation insurance is paid for by employers in order to provide workers with a means of support and the ability to pay for medical treatment. However, when the employees suffer a serious or permanent injury, they need to consult a workers’ compensation attorney to make sure that proper compensation will be provided. This is because they often encounter insurance claims adjusters who: undervalue lost wages; refuse legitimate claims; force injured workers to return to work too soon; deny substantial claims for scarring, permanent injuries, and emotional damage; refuse to accept responsibility for conditions resulting in multiple injuries; and discourage workers from seeking a second medical opinion.
