July 21, 2021 at 15:59

Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. - Columbus, a firm based in Columbus, GA, is pleased to announce that they are ready to provide legal assistance after a personal injury incident. Various kinds of incidents can result into a personal injury, such as car accident, bicycle accident, slip and fall accident, workplace accident, harm from defective products, dog bite, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, or construction accident. When injury befalls an individual, there will be medical bills to pay, lost wages while the victim was in the hospital and recuperating, and stress and anxiety.

Tim Derrickson, a spokesperson for Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. - Columbus, says, “If you have been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, it is normal to feel overwhelmed by your situation. You may also be receiving calls from an insurance adjuster wanting to settle your case quickly. You should never accept the insurance company’s offer and instead, should consult with a Columbus personal injury attorney right away. At Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C., our law firm will not let you accept a lowball offer. We have a team of experienced attorneys and outside experts who will take a look at your case and value it for what it is worth.”

They want to warn personal injury victims that the goal of an insurance adjuster is to save money for the insurance company. The well-being of the injured is never their concern, and their settlement offer will typically be significantly lower than the actual value of the claim. With the experience and knowledge of their attorneys, they are not intimidated by insurance firms, and they can promise not to back down from a formidable opponent to fight the legal rights of their client. Overall, the lawyers in the firm have a combined experience of 350 years and they are ready to provide free consultation for personal injury victims to find out if they have a case.

They are ready to provide legal services to victims of vehicular accidents, involving a car, motorcycle, bus, or 18-wheeler, including pedestrians. They will help their clients in pursuing compensation from all possible insurance policies. In the event that the driver who is at-fault doesn’t have sufficient insurance to adequately compensate the victim, the personal injury lawyers will make claims against the uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance policies to make sure that the clients will get the full compensation they deserve.

Meanwhile, slip and fall accidents are one of the most common personal injury claims that the lawyers encounter. This type of accident usually occurs in a building or property where uneven surfaces and wet and slippery floors can cause people to slip and then fall, resulting into an injury. Victims of such accidents will need to properly document the scene of the accident, for instance, by taking photos of the conditions of the floor and surfaces that caused the slip and fall. It is also advisable for the victim to get medical treatment as early as possible and avoid speaking with a representative of the company or an insurance adjuster.

With regards to workplace accidents, Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws offer coverage for medical bills and lost wages. In some instances, victims of workplace accidents may also be compensated for the pain and suffering that they experienced. While pain and suffering are not covered by the workers’ compensation laws, they can be claimed against third parties, such as co-workers, who negligently or intentionally caused such injuries.

Products, if defective, may also cause harm or injury to people. These may be due to: design defects, improper warning or usage levels, or manufacturing defects. Those who believe they have been harmed by a defective product can request for a free case evaluation from the firm.

When in need of a personal injury attorney Columbus GA residents can check out the Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. - Columbus website or contact them on the telephone or through email. Their offices are open from Monday to Friday, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm; and on Saturdays and Sundays, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
