North Georgia Personal Injury Attorney
Fighting for Your Rights in Northern Georgia
It is an unfortunate fact of life that accidents happen and people get hurt. Whenever an accident is preventable, that is, it occurred because of specific entity's actions which were either negligent or reckless, the law provides recourse for victims of the accident. A personal injury claim is a civil suit that determines, on the basis of a preponderance of evidence, whether a person or entity was responsible for the accident and, if so, how much he or she should be held liable for. At the Law Offices of Steven Leibel, our North Georgia personal injury lawyers are committed to making sure that victims get the money that they need to take care of their medical bills, their families, and their future. We also represent families of those who have been killed in preventable accidents; compensation can be obtained for related medical bills, funeral expenses, and pain and suffering.
We have successfully fought for our clients who were hurt in the following types of accidents or who sustained the following types of injuries:
Each year thousands of victims across Georgia are injured in car accidents, many of which could have been prevented. If you were harmed in an auto accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries and losses by filing a claim.

Injuries to workers are unfortunately very common on construction sites, but if the injuries are the result of negligence, the responsible party can be held liable. If you were harmed because of the negligent actions of another party, it is important to learn your rights and available options to pursue compensation.
Day Care Injuries
Parents trust their children's day care teachers and staff to keep their little ones safe, and if they violate this duty of care they can be held responsible for any injuries that result under personal injury law. If your child was harmed because of negligence at their day care, our team can help you pursue justice and hold the facility liable for their damaging actions.
Medical negligence leads to serious and life-altering injuries and illnesses each year, and if you are a victim you can pursue compensation for your losses and suffering through a medical malpractice claim.

Asbestos was used in all types of industries until its harmful properties were discovered in the late 1970s. Exposure to asbestos has caused thousands to develop mesothelioma, a rare and costly form of cancer. If you have mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure, our team can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycles offer little protection to riders, and when they are involved in collisions with larger passenger vehicles the results can be disastrous. If you sustained serious injuries after being hit by a negligent driver, you can seek a fair settlement and hold them liable for their actions through a personal injury claim.
Nursing Home Negligence
When you placed your elderly relative in a nursing home or assisted living facility you expected that they would receive the attentive care and respect they deserve. If the home violated their responsibility in any way and your loved one has suffered neglect or abuse, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
The law holds property owners responsible to keep their premises free of any potential hazards. If they fail to take reasonable precautions to prevent harm to visitors or patrons, they could be held liable for any resulting injuries under premises liability law.

Manufacturers must ensure that their products are reasonably safe for consumers, and if they failed to do so, you may be entitled to compensation.

Damage to the spine can seriously impact victims' capabilities and even leave them partially or fully paralyzed.

Swimming Pool Accidents
The owners of both private and public pools have a responsibility to take reasonable precautions to prevent injury or fatality at their facilities. If you or a loved one was harmed because of unsafe conditions or a lack of supervision at a swimming pool, you may be able to seek a settlement for your injuries and financial losses.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic injury to the brain is often the result of car accidents, truck accidents, accidents on the job and other preventable accidents. The damage from these injuries often has extensive and lifelong impacts upon the victims, but they can seek rightful compensation through a personal injury claim.
Truck drivers are held to very high standards and must abide by numerous regulations when operating their vehicles. If they are negligent and make reckless or careless choices on the job, they and their trucking companies could be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages sustained by victims.
There is nothing more tragic and painful than losing a loved one, and if your loss was caused by the negligence of another person, we can help you take legal action.
