When it comes to receiving the full reward deserved in your workers' compensation or personal injury case, time is of the essence. Do not damage your chances of securing full, deserved reimbursement by waiting too long to hire an Atlanta injury attorney. Our respected team at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Gilbert is dedicated to working relentlessly for your rights to ensure that you receive the payout to which you are entitled. We have focused our practice on helping clients recover damages owed for catastrophic work injuries and have achieved noteworthy case results in situations involving injuries ranging from blindness to traumatic brain damage. In addition, our firm has helped many personal injury victims in the state of Georgia obtain the restitution they deserve. We can help in a variety of injury situations including, but not limited to, the following:

Catastrophic Work Injury Cases

Amputations
Whether you have lost a finger, a hand, a leg, or any other part of your body due to a crushing or de-gloving incident or a traumatic or surgical amputation, our firm can ensure that you receive the workers' compensation that you deserve.

Back Injuries
From slip and fall accidents to repetitive stress damage, back injuries are all too common in the workplace. If you have a spinal cord injury, fracture, or you potentially require surgery, our firm can help you establish the full extent of your back injury so that you are fairly compensated through a workers' compensation claim.

Blindness or Eye Injuries
Shrapnel from machinery, chemical exposure, bright flashes, and other workplace dangers can cause blindness or catastrophic eye injuries at your place of employment. You have the right to file a workers' comp claim if a workplace hazard caused your blindness or eye injury.

Broken Bones
Catastrophic workplace accidents can result in fractures to the leg, arm, shoulder, hip, vertebrae, and other major bones and bone structures. These injuries can cause long-term damage, so be sure to fight for compensation to cover the related expenses.

Burn Injuries
Hot machinery, exposed wires, chemicals, and other hazardous conditions can cause serious burn injuries on the job. Catastrophic burns often require surgery and skin grafting and will likely result in scarring or even loss of feeling or mobility. Our firm can make sure that you are properly compensated for such injuries.

PTSD from These Injuries
Every serious injury has an emotional impact, and traumatic workplace accidents can have a lasting effect on the mental and emotional health of the victim. If you are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following a serious workplace accident, our firm can help. We will work to pursue fair compensation and assist you with finding the professional help you need to begin on the road to recovery.

RSD (CRPS)
Serious workplace injuries often cause a painful neurological condition called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). Also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), this chronic syndrome is characterized by intense burning pain, swollen tissue, abnormal swearing, and extreme sensitivity. If your work-related injury has resulted in Type I or Type II CRPS, our firm can ensure that you are fully compensated for any and all damages experienced both now and in the future.

Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries that affect the spinal cord are among the most serious and life-altering injuries that a person can endure. The spinal cord is a main part of the central nervous system, and serious damage can result in temporary or permanent paralysis. Not only will our firm fight tirelessly to recover compensation for the full medical expenses, we also have connections with hands-on professionals who help spinal cord injury victims outside of the legal context.

Third-Party Actions
Perhaps you have filed for workers' compensation but you also are eligible to file a personal injury claim against a third party. Our firm can represent you in a lawsuit to win the compensation that you deserve - not only from your employer, but also from the third party involved in your accident. Failing to identify and establish third-party liability is a common example of lawyer malpractice, but at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Gilbert, we evaluate this potential in every case!

Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injury that results in severe motor, communication, or consciousness disturbances, or in severe episodic neurological disorders is considered catastrophic. Even short episodes of lost consciousness can cause traumatic brain injury. Call our firm today to learn more about these types of injuries and how to obtain the benefits you deserve.

Personal Injury Cases

Car Accidents
Injures caused by motor vehicle collisions contribute to more personal injury claims in the United States than any other type of accident. Were you injured in a crash that was not your fault? The personal injury attorney at our firm can help gather necessary evidence, establish negligence, and present a strong case in order to recover fair compensation. We have handled everything from rear-end accidents to rollover and T-bone collisions involving all kinds of vehicles.

Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents usually cause catastrophic injury to the motorcyclist. Our firm can help establish the liability of the other motorist so that your serious injuries are fairly compensated by the negligent driver who hit you. As an expert rider who races high-performance motorcycles, Attorney Jeffrey Gilbert can offer unique insight into these cases that other lawyers - even those dubbing themselves "motorcycle lawyers" - cannot offer.

Truck Accidents
When it comes to the rights and well-being of our clients, we never back down from a fight. Our firm has the aggressive trial skills necessary to take on the big trucking companies. Commercial drivers and their bosses should be held responsible for your damages if you were injured in a highway accident caused by their negligence. These cases are different from routine motor vehicle accidents and require quick action and aggressive handling. Mr. Gilbert has even established the law in this area.

Wrongful Death
Speak with the attorney from our firm immediately if you lost a family member in an accident. You are entitled to recover the full value of the life of the deceased from the deceased's perspective - a nuance that can be extremely powerful.
