North Georgia Personal Injury Attorney
Serving Individuals and Families in Sandy Springs & Atlanta
At Douglas F. Kaleita, P.C., our Atlanta injury attorney takes a different
approach to claims than many other firms in the area. We have found that
it is far more productive to negotiate in a friendly, respectful manner
with the insurance companies and their lawyers than to be contentious,
argumentative and aggressive. Our history of success in getting settlements
for our clients is based upon our willingness to set aside the lawyer
egos and work with the "other side" on a friendly basis.

The most common and dangerous type of accidents are vehicle related. Speeding,
reckless or drunk drivers can ruin a life in a second. Whether you were
injured in rear end, side impact or head on collision, or there were other
circumstances that led to your injuries, you could be eligible to be compensated
for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and more.
Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severe burns and other
types of permanent injuries are termed "catastrophic," as the
impact on the individual will last a lifetime. Any catastrophic injury
claim should be carefully managed, as the victim may never again be able
to function in life, or in their profession, or even with their loved ones.
The statistics regarding motorcycle accidents and serious injury are frightening.
Even a collision at a slow speed can lead to permanent damage, or injuries
that can take months or even years to resolve. Ranging from severe abrasions
to broken shoulders, knees and elbows through to permanent brain damage,
these claims must be managed professionally.
Any injury that takes place on the property of another person, on government
property, public property or in any type of commercial property is addressed
through a premises liability claim. Every property is insured in some
way, including private homes. It is important to have a case evaluation
if you or your loved one has been injured.
There is a great deal of commercial truck activity between Atlanta and
the northern part of the state. Trucks moving chickens, meat, poultry
and goods for commercial outlets are constantly on the move on highway
75, 23, 85, and other roads and streets. Accidents involving commercial
trucks usually lead to devastating injuries or death.
When a loved one has lost their lives through a negligent act, the law
allows for a wrongful death claim to be filed by certain close family
members. The situation is so devastating emotionally that it can be difficult
to consider the financial ramifications. We take this problem and help
families get it resolved with the goal of helping them move forward.
If you were injured while engaged in your employment duties, you have
a right to file a claim for workers' compensation. It is there to
protect you—but it can be more difficult than expected. When our
firm gets involved, we make sure that your claim is submitted correctly,
and that every possible form of compensation is sought for you or your
loved one. We represent workers in all types of work accidents and all
types of workplace injuries.
