Dade County Personal Injury Practice Areas

Accidents usually happen in the blink of any eye, but their consequences can span months, years, or even a lifetime. If you are the victim of any type of personal injury accident caused by another’s negligence or bad judgment, you deserve justice. The best way to obtain that justice is by speaking to a knowledgeable Dade County, GA personal injury lawyer from Dennis and King.

Our Dade County personal injury attorneys handle all types of personal injury cases, but the most common include:

  • Car accidents are the most common source of personal injury claims. According to gahighwaysafety.org, there were 1,797 fatal car accidents in Georgia in 2021, which translates to 149 fatalities per every 100 million vehicle miles driven. As the number of vehicles on Georgia roadways increases, the number of accidents is likely to increase as well.
  • Motorcycle Accidents tend to result in much more severe injuries to the motorcyclist than to those in the vehicle, simply because the motorcyclist has little to no protection. Victims of motorcycle accidents may face years—or even a lifetime—of pain and ongoing medical procedures following a Dade County motorcycle accident.
  • Truck Accidents often leave those in the smaller passenger vehicles with severe, even permanently disabling injuries. The sheer size disparity between a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle creates a crash environment that can leave victims with catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Boating Accidents – Between the years 2012 and 2021, there were 43,552 boating accidents across the United States (5,837 of those included fatalities). Of these boating accidents, 1,005 occurred in the state of Georgia. Boating accidents can leave victims with serious injuries. If the injuries were caused by another person’s negligence, then a personal injury claim could be warranted.
  • Premises Liability accidents mean that the accident occurred on another person’s property as the result of negligence. Premises liability claims arise after a property owner failed to correct a known hazard. Dog bites are one type of premises liability claim, in addition to environmental hazards and toxins, inadequate maintenance or security, etc.
  • Slip and Fall Injuries most often occur in public places like grocery stores, parking lots, sidewalks, restaurants, bars, restrooms, stairways, hotels, and more. If a slip and fall accident was the result of negligence, you have the right to hold the property owner accountable for your damages.
  • Brain Injuries can result from automobile accidents (particularly semi-truck and motorcycle accidents), or can be caused by a boating accident, a slip and fall accident, or another type of premises liability accident. Severe brain injuries can result in a lifetime of medical interventions, and can even cause significant changes in the victim’s personality.
  • Bicycle Accidents like motorcycle accidents, often cause severe or catastrophic injuries to the bicyclist. Often, a bicyclist has virtually no protection—other than possibly a helmet—and can collide with other vehicles, hard pavement, or other objects as he or she is thrown from their bicycle.
  • Nursing Home Abuse is heartbreaking and horrifying to family members and victims alike. You expect that your elderly loved one will be treated with kindness, care, and respect. If that turns out not to be true, you do have options for seeking justice.
  • Burn Injuries are among the most painful injuries resulting from auto accidents, workplace injuries, and hazardous conditions on the properties of others. They can cause emotional suffering in addition to physical pain. Burn injuries can be difficult to treat and can result in months—or even years—of recovery.
  • Wrongful Death occurs when the negligent actions of another result in a death. Each state determines who can file a wrongful death claim—in the state of Georgia, that includes surviving spouses, children, and parents of the decedent.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage claims result when the negligent actions of one driver result in an accident and injuries to others. If that driver is uninsured or underinsured, the plaintiff may be forced to file a claim against their own insurance company.

Motor vehicle and car wreck accidents are among the most common causes of accidental injury, and neck and back injuries are frequent in these accidents. Injuries to the neck and back often require more time to heal, which means more medical treatment, more pain and suffering, and more time out of work. In these cases, it’s always in your best interest to hire a Dade County personal injury attorneys without delay.

About Motorcycle Accidents >

ATV Accidents

Under both Tennessee and Georgia law, ATVs are not authorized for use on paved road, but children continue to bring ATVs on to our roads and highways. Georgia and Tennessee laws also prohibit the carrying of passengers on most ATVs, require children below the age of 16 to take approved ATV training courses, and require kids younger than 16 to wear helmets, eye protection, and over-the-ankle boots when operating ATVs. However, these requirements apply only when ATVs are operated on public lands, leaving kids essentially without protection when riding ATVs on private property.

About ATV Accidents >

Bicycle Accidents

The most tragic type of bicycle crash is a bike-car collision. Cyclists are completely defenseless traveling on 30-pound bikes when they’re surrounded by 3,000-pound cars and trucks racing by them. Pedestrians, defective bike parts, recalled bike helmets, and other ineffective bicycle safety equipment can also cause bicycle accidents. Bike accidents can result in wrongful death or serious injuries such as broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.

About Bicycle Accidents >

Boating Accidents

One of three factors usually cause boat accidents: an inexperienced boater, an intoxicated operator, or a boat malfunction. More than a third of both fatal and non-fatal boat accidents are alcohol-related. It is estimated that boat operators with a blood alcohol content of .10 or higher are 10 times more likely to be injured or killed in a boat accident than sober operators.
