Bicycle Accidents

Motorcycles come with a certain amount of inherent risk, but when you follow the rules and use caution but are injured through someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be fairly compensated. Although motorcycles account for just 3% of vehicles on the road, they are responsible for as much as 14% of fatalities due to collisions on the roadway. Once more, the injuries caused by motorcycle accidents are typically more severe and debilitating.

When on the road, motorists have a certain standard of care that they must exercise when motorcyclists are present, and when they do not and are at fault, it is their responsibility to reimburse a motorcyclist for their injuries, pain and suffering, and any impending disability. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident, whether you are at fault or not, you deserve to be fairly compensated.


Drunk Driving Lawyer

When you think of drunk driving, you typically have visions of someone getting out of a car and stumbling around, but there are often times when those accused of wrongdoing were not intentionally doing wrong. If you are accused of drunk driving, the consequences can be severe; if convicted, they can completely alter your way of life, your reputation, and your future. Don’t leave your fate to chance. At Califf Law Firm, we understand that every action you take will affect the outcome of your case.

Before you take any other steps, step one is to contact our office to minimize the fallout of what comes next.

Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyer

You have the right to assume when you seek care from a medical professional that the advice and diagnosis are reasonably accurate and correct. It is believed that anywhere from 10 to 15% of patients will be wrongly diagnosed each year in the US. That is a staggering percentage when you consider the devastation that can result from an improper diagnosis. Being improperly diagnosed can lead to not receiving the medical treatment necessary to mitigate the negative consequences of illness, or it can mean that someone is subject to treatments and procedures that they did not need and that can have devastating prognoses for their future. If you believe that you or someone you love have been the victim of medical misdiagnosis, then acting quickly is of the essence. If you are concerned that your medical care has been substandard, then you have the right to file a claim to receive fair compensation.

Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

When you find a nursing home to care for your aging loved one, you have the right to assume that the nursing home will provide appropriate and proper care – but unfortunately, that might not always be the case. According to recent statistics, more than 40% of nursing home patients will at some point report abuse, and 90% of those who do claim neglect. Since you can’t always be there to protect your loved one, it is critical to find someone in your corner who can and will. At Califf Law Firm, we are experts in nursing home neglect litigation in Augusta, GA. We understand that it is challenging to prove, so the steps that you take following an incident and how you document things are of the utmost importance.

If you suspect that your elderly parent has fallen prey, contact us immediately so that we can take steps to get the reimbursement that you are not only entitled to -that you deserve.

Slip and Fall

Not many home- and property owners understand that they have a legal obligation to take reasonable care to ensure that their premises are safe for passersby. If someone is injured and suffers a slip and fall injury, the owner of the property may be held accountable for physical and emotional injuries. In the same respect, when you enter someone else’s property, you have the legal right to expect that the conditions of the property are safe, and if they are not, the property owner can be held legally responsible for your injuries. When you suffer a fall due to the negligence of someone else, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your injuries, pain and suffering, and any resulting disabilities that may arise. At Califf Law Firm, we have the experience and education to make sure that our clients receive all that they are entitled to. We carefully guide our clients to take the proper steps necessary to protect themselves and their claims. If you are the victim of a slip and fall accident in Augusta, GA, time is of the essence.

Wrongful Death
