Helping Accident Victims Recover Financially And Physically

Brow and Associates, LLC, is proud to help injury victims and their families seek the compensation they need and deserve after an accident caused by negligence. Our primary focuses in personal injury law are auto accidents and slip-and-fall injuries.

Car And Truck Accidents

Auto accidents are an unfortunate reality across the country, and there are times when they cannot be predicted or avoided. But most of the time, accidents are caused by driver negligence. If you or a loved one was seriously injured (or worse) by a negligent and dangerous driver, our firm is ready to help you seek justice and compensation.

We represent victims of nearly all types of auto accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents (semis and 18-wheelers)
  • Commercial and municipal vehicle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Crashes caused by distracted, drunk or aggressive drivers

The cause or causes of an accident are not always immediately clear. If you were involved in a crash and suspect that another driver may be at fault, please contact our firm to discuss your legal options with an attorney.

Seeking Compensation After A Slip-And-Fall Accident

Litigation related to slip-and-fall injuries belongs to a subset of personal injury law known as premises liability. In essence, you can sue for damages if you were injured on someone else's property and those injuries were caused by dangerous conditions or property owner negligence.

Common slip-and-fall scenarios include:

  • Slipping on spilled products at a grocery store that were not cleaned up quickly enough
  • Slipping on a freshly mopped floor at a coffee shop because employees did not put out a "caution: wet floor" sign
  • Slipping on an icy or snowy sidewalk because the property owner failed to remove snow and salt the concrete
  • Slipping on slick floors at someone's home due to a water leak that was not adequately addressed

Even though you may not have fallen from any significant height, a slip-and-fall accident can result in bruises, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and even back/spine injuries. By filing a lawsuit, you can seek compensation for medical bills, lost work time, pain and suffering and personal property damage.

Two Considerations In Any Personal Injury Case

No matter how you were injured, you should know that you generally have two years from the date of the accident in which to file a lawsuit. This may seem like plenty of time, but it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer quickly to preserve evidence and give yourself the best chance of holding the at-fault party accountable.

You should also know that Georgia is a comparative negligence state, a doctrine recognizing that fault for an accident is sometimes shared between the plaintiff and the defendant(s). This means that you can recover damages if you were less than 50 percent responsible for your injuries, but your award may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.
