Sawyer Injury Law handles every type of motor vehicle collision involving an automobile, motorcycle or truck and another vehicle, bicycle or pedestrian. Mr. Sawyer has almost two decades of experience handling motor vehicle accidents for both plaintiffs and defendants. As a defense lawyer, Mr. Sawyer served as staff counsel for multiple major insurance companies defending automobile collision lawsuits all over the metro Atlanta area and nationwide, including conducting many jury trials.
For most workplace accidents, injured workers can get workers’ compensation benefits without having to prove negligence or fault, but they cannot sue for the full amount of damages. However, the law permits the employee to collect workers’ compensation benefits and also sue whoever is responsible for the injury when the negligent party is not an employer or co-worker. Sawyer Injury Law handles these “third-party liability” cases from accidents on construction sites and factory floors, as well as work-related automobile collisions.
When property owners fail to provide a reasonably safe premises for their customers, guests or others lawfully on their property, they can be liable for injuries that result from a slip and fall or other accident. Property owners must exercise ordinary care for the safety of people they invite on their property and cannot “willfully or wantonly” injure others with a license to enter the property for various lawful purposes. Norm Sawyer has handled premises liability matters for plaintiffs and defendants throughout the Atlanta metro area and nationwide, and he knows how to build a strong case proving the defendant’s liability and the plaintiff’s damages.
When a state or local government is the defendant in a personal liability case, such as a collision involving a government vehicle or a slip and fall on government property, the claim must be handled differently than a case against a private defendant. Failure to know about and follow special procedural rules can cause injury victims to lose out on their claims before they ever start. Mr. Sawyer handled a nationwide insurance company practice defending governments in trucking accidents, premises liability and other civil claims. He even trained the company’s entire claims department on Georgia government liability laws and rules at the insurance company’s municipal claims headquarters in Texas.
Norman Sawyer is deeply experienced in municipal liability claims, and Sawyer Injury Law is the perfect law firm to represent you if you have been hurt by a government employee, a government vehicle, or on government property in Atlanta.
Accidents that result in severe injury are typically more complex when it comes to issues of both liability and damages. Catastrophic injury victims may be disabled for the long term or permanently, living with functional limitations or cognitive impairments that significantly disrupt their ability to lead a normal and fulfilling life. Placing a dollar value on these claims may require the use of financial experts and life care planners, and putting these figures together in a compelling fashion for an insurance company, judge or jury requires skill and know-how based on experience. Sawyer Injury Law takes on cases involving the most severe and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, burn injuries, amputation, and others.
The most tragic accidents result in the needless and preventable death of a loved one. Sawyer Injury Law puts more than twenty years of experience behind developing a case that proves the responsible party’s liability and fault while putting together a persuasive and comprehensive argument for a damages award that represents the “full value of the decedent’s life” according to Georgia’s wrongful death statute. Wrongful death lawsuits provide much-needed compensation to struggling families as well as some sense that justice has been done, and Sawyer Injury Law is committed to pursuing both of these principles for family members who lost a loved one because of another’s negligence or misconduct.
