Construction is dangerous. There is no way around this fact. Construction workers are injured at more than twice the rate that many other workers in other industries, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Construction workers know the dangers of the job, and so do their employers. As such, employees and employers usually follow all state and federal laws when it comes to workplace safety.

  • Slip and Fall
  • Trip and Fall
  • Falling Object

Premises liability cases, also known as slip and fall cases, happen when a person is injured because of a dangerously unsafe condition on someone else’s property. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition for those lawfully on the property. Premises liability law includes so-called “slip and fall” cases, but there are also many other ways a person can get injured because of a defect on the premises, including a trip and fall, being struck by a falling object, assaults that occur because of negligent security, and more.

  • Georgia Governmantal Liability
  • Cobb County
  • Fulton County
  • Atlanta Municipal Liability

Municipal injury claims refer to personal injury or wrongful death claims made against the state of Georgia or any of its respective cities or counties. The government could be the proper defendant in a personal injury when a government employer or government agency is responsible for the injury. The most common examples include a vehicular collision with a government vehicle driven by a negligent government employee or a slip and fall on government property.

  • Legal Briefing
  • Case Auditing
  • Courtroom Work

Sawyer Injury Law offers its services as a litigation consultant to lawyers who have not developed sufficient experience or expertise in trial yet find themselves embroiled in litigation or who are stressed with a large caseload and could use an extra set of skilled eyes to consult on their case. Atlanta personal injury attorney Norman Sawyer has provided consultancy services in the past and is pleased to continue to provide these services to lawyers who need them. Below are some of the areas where Sawyer Injury Law can be of particular service.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Burn Injuries
  • Amputation Injuries

All traffic collisions are bad, but some are much, much worse than others. The most serious type of traffic collision is called a catastrophic accident, which leaves the victim with debilitating and life-threatening injuries and pain. If you were involved in such a collision, you have the opportunity to sue the at-fault party for substantial compensation, which usually means maxing out that party’s insurance policy, and potentially going beyond their policy limits.

  • Fatal Automobile Accidents
  • Fatal Semi-truck Crashes
  • Fatal Motorcycle Wrecks

At Sawyer Injury Law, we have worked with individuals who have suffered the most severe and catastrophic injuries in vehicular collisions, construction accidents and other tragic incidents, but worst of all is a fatal crash or fall that takes the life of a loved one. Family members left behind are often devastated by the fact that they lost a beloved member of the family merely because some driver wasn’t driving carefully or attentively, or because a property owner failed to clean up a spill or fix a dangerous hazard before somebody got hurt.

Vehicular Collisions

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.

Workplace Accidents

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.

Premises Liability

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.

Municipal Claims

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.

Catastrophic Accidents

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.

Wrongful Death

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.
