Macon, GA Personal Injury LawyerPersonal injuries happen every day and in every situation – on the road, at work, at home, and in the hospital, grocery store or shopping mall. An injured person might recover over a period of weeks, months or longer while not being able to work to pay for such expenses as primary medical care, medicine, therapy and rehabilitation, in-home care, a wheelchair, and property damage, such as to repair or replace a car after a wreck. People who are injured by others deserve to be compensated for their losses, but aggressive legal help is usually required to realize that goal.

Help Investigating Your Case

Georgia law allows for a personal injury lawsuit to be filed as a way to seek relief and provide compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. One of the most important ways our personal injury lawyers can assist you is during the investigation of the accident. Whether the incident occurred in a vehicle wreck, while on-the-job or in a public space there are sometimes multiple at-fault parties and overlapping insurance policies. Our thorough investigation can help you more fully understand what happened, what went wrong, and who may be liable.

Help Protecting Your Interests

When it comes to handling injuries and accidents, it is important to remember that the police are neutral and not in a position to investigate or protect your individual circumstances. Employers are often pressured to do the least to resolve a work injury – wanting to wrap it up quickly in order to get back to business-as-usual. And, insurance companies are already ‘lawyered-up’, working hard to protect their bottom-line. You need an advocate working on your side.

Help With the Insurance Companies

Macon, GA personal injury lawyer David Mann is involved in every case. David left larger firms, including work as a lawyer for a large insurance company, to join his family law firm. This work with insurance companies provided invaluable insight about their defense strategies that helps us better serve our clients.

“It really helps to know what the tactics are on the defense side. Once you file a lawsuit, it helps to know both sides of the fence; it helps you to know what’s coming before it comes and to better plan for it.”

Help Securing Compensation

Aggressive Driving Laws Plus a Few Safety Tips

Aggressive Driving Laws Plus a Few Safety Tips

Readers probably recall hearing back in the 1990s about ‘road rage,’ the new term for aggressive driving. An increasing trend of reckless, aggressive driving in the U.S. caused Georgia and other states to pass laws targeting ‘road rage.’ Since those days, the issue has faded from headlines. Aggressive driving is of course still common across Georgia; who doesn’t recall another driver flashing their lights at them, ‘flipping them the bird,’ or tailgating? Most of these incidents do not escalate beyond words and gestures, but things have been known to get out of hand. Sometimes ‘road rage’ can even lead to the use of weapons, as happened last month in Columbus, Georgia. Three men were involved in a two-vehicle road rage incident that started at approximately 8 p.m. on JR Allen Parkway near at the state line. The men started shouting at each other, tailgating and giving hand gestures. Family met the two cars at a gas station ahead and shots were fired, injuring two people. Georgia and Aggressive Driving Laws The law against aggressive driving in Georgia makes it a six-point penalty, with a possible license suspension when one accrues 15 points or more in a 24-month period. The aggressive driving law states that a driver commits aggressive driving when he operates a motor vehicle with the intent to harass, annoy, molest, injure or intimidate another person. It is charged as a misdemeanor of ‘a high and aggravated nature.’ The police do not usually charge drivers with aggressive driving in Georgia. Instead, they tend to issue them a citation for the specific violation that stemmed from the aggressive driving, such as reckless driving or speeding. If the illegal conduct gets to the point that the aggressive driver attempts to injure another person with their vehicle, that can be charged in Georgia as aggravated assault. Avoiding Aggressive Drivers If you come across an aggressive driver in Georgia, it is important that you not engage with him or her. One never knows what could happen if you make an aggressive driver even more angry than they already are. recommends the following tips to avoid road rage: If someone is tailgating you, move over, even if you are traveling well above the speed limit. Wave with an ‘I’m sorry’ gesture to try to defuse the aggressive driver. Plan ahead. Allow for more time for potential delays in your trip so you do not become an aggressive driver yourself. Determine whether you are doing something in your driving that is irritating other drivers. Are you not using turn signals? Going below the speed limit in the left lane? Then adjust your driving accordingly. Listen to music you like as you drive to keep you calm. Do not use your horn unless necessary. Do not make eye contact with aggressive drivers, and give them as much room as you can. Some of the common reasons for aggressive driving include fighting over parking spots, being cut off, not being allowed to pass, getting ‘the finger,’ annoyance at excessive honking, and being tailgated. If you are ever in an accident with an aggressive driver and are injured, do not engage in any way with the other driver. Call 911 and stay in your vehicle. After the police arrive and the scene is secure, consider calling a Georgia personal injury attorney. Get Legal Help from a Georgia Personal Injury Attorney Today Were you or a loved... read more
Will Sidewalks Make Hollingsworth Road Safer for Pedestrians?

Will Sidewalks Make Hollingsworth Road Safer for Pedestrians?

If you are a pedestrian around Macon’s Hollingsworth Road, you know this can be a hazardous spot. Fortunately, new sidewalks are coming to the road to increase public safety. Bibb County, Georgia, commissioners recently approved addition of a sidewalk on the busy road between Log Cabin Drive and Robinson Road. At least one local resident is glad of the coming change. Marcus Thomas stated in a recent newspaper article that he depends on his bike to get around Macon. But Hollingsworth Road has been a problem because there is no sidewalk there currently. Thomas lives off the busy road, and whenever he leaves home, he must ride in the street with traffic. Thomas said the cars are numerous and travel very fast. Another local resident, Christopher Fields also lives near Hollingsworth Road.  He said that cars at night are traveling very fast and he cannot hear them coming until they are past him. Fields said that the new sidewalk will be a welcome change and could prevent serious pedestrian accidents. According to Bibb Commissioner Al Tillman, many children use the road to access Filmore Thomas Park and New Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church. He is relieved the sidewalk will be constructed soon to ensure local children are safe from the busy roads. Tillman stated that the county is using $280,000 of taxpayer money to add sidewalks, and engineers are creating the plans for the new safety additions this month. Hopefully, the added sidewalk will reduce the chance of serious pedestrian accidents in the region. Across the U.S., 5,376 pedestrians died in traffic accidents in 2015. Any safety improvement that can reduce that number is a good thing. Important Safety Tips for Macon Pedestrians Traffic is getting heavier and heavier in this thriving city south of Atlanta. If you are a pedestrian and must walk in an area with limited sidewalks, remember the following tips: Wear clothes that are bright and light colored, with reflective materials if possible. Have a flashlight with you if you are walking at night. If you are crossing the street at night, use a crosswalk in a well-lit area. Stand away from hedges, parked cars, buses, etc., before you cross the street so drivers can see you. If there is no sidewalk, walk against traffic so you can see the cars coming. Never drink and go for a walk. Walking while impaired always increases the chance of an accident. Never assume vehicles will stop. Make careful eye contact with drivers before attempting to cross the street, even at a crosswalk. Be on the look-out for drivers on cell phones who are distracted.
