Vehicle Accidents

Car Wrecks

Every year in Georgia, there are around 330,000 vehicle crashes on our roads. Those crashes lead to around 16,500 serious injuries and 1,200 deaths. These statistics point to the fact that vehicle crashes are an unfortunate part of life in Georgia, but what the numbers don’t illustrate is just how devastating they can be for the people involved.

Tractor-Trailer Wrecks

Ethical tractor-trailer companies enforce policies that value safety over these short-term economic incentives, but not all tractor-trailer companies are ethical. We share the roads with these tractor-trailer companies, and, unfortunately, when their drivers cause a wreck it almost always leads to a serious injury or wrongful death. READ MORE

Premises Liability

Companies that manage property must follow certain protocol that includes inspecting for property hazards and using reasonable care to fix those hazards. If you or a loved one was seriously injured because a company chose to violate these rules, the Stoddard Firm can help. READ MORE

Negligent Security

Most people are no stranger to fact that the threat of violence is an ever-present fact of life. We secure our homes and avoid places that we know to be more dangerous. But what happens when we suffer a violent attack on someone else’s property, a place that we trusted to be safe? READ MORE

Product Liability

Consumers have a right to certain expectations when using a product. These expectations are violated when manufacturers employ dangerous designs, fail to test for product weaknesses or defects, construct products with unsafe materials, or market products without effective warnings. READ MORE

Human Trafficking

Human trafficking might sound like a problem that exists exclusively in developing countries that lack a strong, centralized government and adequate worker protection laws, but unfortunately, both sex and labor trafficking are problems in Georgia and elsewhere in the U.S. As a result, it is important that victims of trafficking be aware that they have legal options available.

Sex Trafficking

People tend to have misconceptions about sex trafficking. One assumption is that sex trafficking is rare in the United States. This is not true. While the true scope of the problem is unknown and many cases go unreported, largely due to the illegal and secretive nature of the trade, it is known that sex trafficking is well-established in the United States. In Atlanta alone, sex trafficking is an industry that generates nearly $300 million annually. READ MORE

Catastrophic Injury

Not all injuries are created equally. While some accidents lead only to minor pain, others lead to serious and/or debilitating injuries. “Catastrophic injury” is a term used to describe the most serious injuries a person can suffer. These injuries are the most painful, costly and inhibiting of all injury types. READ MORE

Electrical Injuries

Electrocution and electric shock might not loom large in public consciousness as a cause of serious injury and death, but statistics indicate that these events should be a more frequent topic of discussion. Every year, there are approximately 70 electrocution fatalities related to consumer products. READ MORE

Wrongful Death
