At Tovar-Hastings Law, we focus on the following areas of our personal injury practice:
A fellow driver who operates a car while impaired or distracted can cause tragedy on the roads. From soft tissue injuries to spinal cord damage, victims need representation from an Atlanta car accident attorney who provides dedicated and aggressive representation. If you have been in a car accident, your priority should be to care for your injuries and obtain immediate medical assistance. Your health and safety always come first. Having to deal with an insurance company, while important, is not the priority at this critical time. Our knowledgeable and caring attorneys are here to help you through this difficult time.
Let the Tovar-Hastings Act help you get through this challenging event by addressing issues like:
Truck drivers and their employers must comply with strict federal regulations governing their industry. When those mandates are ignored, truckers operate their massive vehicles fatigued or under the influence. Your negligence puts other drivers at risk of serious and fatal injuries.
The physics of a car or truck hitting a motorcycle is simple. The motorcyclist is likely to suffer more serious injuries. With or without the protection of a helmet, the physical damage caused to an accident victim is life-changing, disabling and potentially fatal.
Riding a bike is a great way to enjoy exercise and some fresh air, not to mention environmental protection and mobility. However, it is important to know the laws that keep everyone safe when sharing the road, and what to do if you are involved in an accident while riding a bicycle.
Determination of fault in an accident
Determining who is at fault and to what extent has a large impact on who receives compensation. There are many factors to consider, and many times multiple parties contribute to the accident to a greater or lesser degree.
Uninsured Motorist Claims
All Georgia drivers must have auto insurance to comply with state laws. This does not mean that everyone has adequate insurance because some drivers purchase the minimum required coverage, while others take their chances and do not purchase any insurance.
Nursing home abuse
When you place an elderly or disabled family member in a nursing home, you are establishing a bond of trust with that facility. When neglect or abuse is discovered, you need the help of an experienced attorney to protect the victim's rights and seek justice on your behalf. People spend a lot of their hard-earned money to put their parents in a nursing facility. They expect their mother or father to be treated with the utmost care, respect and dignity. When that doesn't happen, the best way to counter it is through legal action and class action lawsuits. Abuse in nursing homes manifests itself in many cases. Some include abusive treatment, neglect, or incompetent care.
When a product fails, most people don't realize that they have the right to go after the manufacturer; however, it is your responsibility to produce and sell tested products safely. Products such as food, medicines, tires, vehicles, children's toys, stairs, etc. can cause serious damage or injury. Call us today to learn your rights when it comes to product safety.
Mesothelioma and asbestos
Most people are unaware of what mesothelioma is until it affects them or a loved one. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that is a direct result of exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a material that has been used for years in various building materials, auto parts, fabrics, and much more. People who have worked in factories or warehouses have been especially affected by this disease. Asbestos particles have a carcinogenic effect on the lungs which is known to cause mesothelioma. Treatment for this disease usually results in surgery, radiation treatments, or even chemotherapy. If you or a loved one has encountered this terrible disease, you have rights and deserve to be compensated.
