To the uninitiated, a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim may look the same, which is quite understandable because both are about compensation for injuries. However, the two are not exactly the same; there are differences between them. The main difference is that fault (on the part of the defendant) is required in a personal injury case, while it is not required in a workers’ compensation case. Let’s examine the differences in more detail.
Thousands of pedestrians are severely injured and hundreds more are killed every year in the streets of America. While pedestrians themselves are often at fault (such as texting when walking), a majority of them are injured or killed by negligent, drowsy or intoxicated drivers. Clearly, rules and regulations are not enough to prevent accidents; the answer lies in the use of advanced technologies. If you are injured in an accident, only skilled pedestrian accident attorneys can help you.

Since the news had surfaced that the Georgia Bar had mis-graded bar exams from 2015 and 2016, telling 90 students they’d failed the test when in reality they’d passed, people were expecting litigation to follow the incident. A lot of the victims suffered both professionally and personally (and as hopeful members of the legal profession) one would expect for them to seek after remedies.
The legal world was in for a shock yesterday when the Georgia Board of Bar Examiners announced that 90 test-takers were mistakenly told they had failed when they, in fact, had passed. This incident altered the career trajectory of many promising lawyers, and the victims could potentially sue for special damages (such as loss of income or loss earning capacity). If you have been in a situation where you experienced a loss of income (or a loss of earning capacity) due to the negligence or errors of someone else, call Brogdon Champion, LLC today.

It seems shocking that Georgia law could protect school districts and their employees when their negligence results in serious injury or death. When we send our kids of to school, we expect, and hope, that they will be cared for and that nothing will happen to them. Unless the legislature changes the law, parents whose children suffer serious injuries or deaths and school will continue to find the courthouse doors locked when they try to seek justice for their children
