Put Our Attorneys in Your Corner
After an accident leaves you or a loved one injured, your primary concern is getting back your health. However, medical expenses quickly add up and regular bills still need to be paid. When the insurance company offers you a settlement, it may be tempting to accept their offer, even if you recognize it to be lower than you deserve, just because you have more important things to worry about than the hassle of dealing with the paperwork and technical details of fighting for a fair settlement. Unfortunately, accepting a low settlement offer may leave you with expensive medical bills long after the settlement check has run out.

Douglasville Has a Unique Location
Sitting just west of Atlanta, Douglasville occupies an important location in Georgia. Stationed right along I-20, it occupies a main corridor for trade and commerce into Georgia and going out to the western states beyond. State Highway 78, on the north side of town, also provides an important artery for travel throughout the state. Situated so close to Atlanta, it takes part in much of the cultural and entertainment options offered by the larger city, while being far enough away to have its own unique identity.
As the county seat for Douglas County, Douglasville plays an important role in the political and judicial decisions being made that affect all the residents of the city and county. The city’s median age of 34 years makes it somewhat younger than Georgia overall. This is a growing city with many growing families.
Almost 60% of people in Douglasville identify as African American, with Caucasians, Hispanics, and Asians filling most of the rest of population. This gives Douglasville a multicultural identity, with a wide diversity of needs and perspectives.
Areas of Practice
Kaufman Law, P.C. focuses only on practicing personal injury law, because we believe that having a great deal of experience in one area of the law is better for our clients. For personal injury cases, we handle a wide variety of issues. If you’ve been injured in an accident, we have the experience in law that you need to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
Georgia is no stranger to car accidents. In 2014, the latest year with full data for Douglas County, there were over 333,000 car accidents throughout the state and over 4,200 in Douglas County alone. Out of those accidents in Douglas County, there were over 1,600 injuries and 12 fatalities. In almost every car accident, however, someone was negligent in taking the proper precautions to ensure the safety of the drivers with whom they share the road.
Car accidents often result in expensive medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages due to missed time at work. As the victim of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t be required to shoulder the financial burden imposed by an accident. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of those who have been injured in car accidents and have helped our clients meet the expenses of their injuries, so they can focus on healing.
Trucks are a common sight, not only on I-20, but also along State Highway 78. Truck drivers are professionals who care deeply about safety and usually practice their trade with care. However, when drivers are negligent in operating their trucks safely, the results are often tragic for those involved in a collision with them.
Even when the drivers are conscientious about their driving, the company they drive for may not perform the needed maintenance to ensure their vehicles are safe to travel the many miles required for their task. Truck manufacturers may also contribute to accidents with dangerous products that lead to injuries for other motorists.
Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents
Those who ride a bicycle or motorcycle are entitled to share the roads just as much as any car or truck. However, their smaller profile means that inattentive drivers often fail to spot them and that negligence often leads to accidents and serious injuries.
Bicycles and motorcycles are not more prone to being involved in an accident. However, when a rider is in a wreck, they are more vulnerable to injury, even serious injury, than those riding in the protection of a passenger vehicle. This can mean expensive medical bills, years of rehab and recovery, and months or even years of missed work and lost wages.
In some cases, recovery after an accident is not as simple as wearing a cast for several weeks as a broken bone mends. Injuries to the brain or spine can leave victims paralyzed or lacking basic motor skills. They may require assistance with ordinary tasks like feeding themselves or carrying out basic hygiene tasks. Sufferers of catastrophic injuries may face amputations or serious damage to internal organs that require extensive medical intervention. In any of these cases, the victims may never regain the normal life they experienced before the accident.
While no compensation can restore what these victims have lost, medical expenses and the special care they require can easily add up beyond what most people are able to pay without assistance. They may require modifications to their home or car and need specialized medical equipment in their homes. Serious injuries deserve compensation to meet the expensive demands their new condition makes necessary.
Perhaps nothing is so bitter to family members as knowing that their loved one’s death was unnecessary and may not have occurred were it not for another’s negligence. In some cases, though a person has been killed through negligence, no criminal charges are sought or are not successful. In these cases especially, family members often want the closure of hearing someone admit that what happened to their loved one was wrong or to have a verdict say that this should not have happened.
Loved ones of those who have been killed through negligence are entitled to compensation for the lost support they could have expected from their loved one, as well as compensation for the lack of companionship. Compensation can help meet final expenses as well as provide for the family after the death of their loved one.
