Personal injury law encompasses any injury caused by the negligence of another person or entity. Further, personal injury claims can involve anything from a broken bone or whiplash to more serious conditions, such as paralysis and even wrongful death. Automobile accidents are the No. 1 cause of personal injury claims, with an accident occurring every 10 seconds in the United States.
Other types of personal injury cases include:
- Slips and falls
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Daycare injuries
- Wrongful death
- Unsafe products liability
- Amusement park accidents
- Swimming pool and waterpark accidents
- Pharmacy prescription errors
If you have been injured due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, you may have a right to compensation for your losses and damages. Unfortunately, though, insurance companies make every effort to pay as little as possible to personal injury victims. Furthermore, in some cases, you may be entitled to more compensation than you know. That's why it's so important to talk with a legal expert who knows the ins and outs of personal injury law in Georgia.
To ensure that you get the compensation you deserve, contact McAleer Law today.

Settling or Going to Trial for a Personal Injury Claim
Not all personal injury cases are settled in court. In many cases, an agreeable settlement can be reached out of court. However, in some cases, a settlement cannot be agreed upon, and the case must be settled in trial. With this in mind, you should ensure that your personal injury attorney has trial experience and will be willing to go to court with you to get the compensation you are owed.
As an illustration of this, in 2011 our firm was able to get a client more than $100,000 for a dog bite that required surgery.

“After my case was turned down by several firms, I asked Mr. McAleer to review my case. He did, and he thought he could win it. The insurance company did not offer me one dime, even at trial and after the jury was deliberating. The Gwinnett jury returned a verdict in my favor for $300,000. I was in tears. I will always be thankful to Mr. McAleer for believing in my case and in me.”
