Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) April 18, 2012 – Bikers need to also be aware of what is going on around them. In this case, the motorcyclist made a bad judgment call. “Typically, when a motorcycle and another vehicle are involved in an accident, it was the vehicle that caused the accident. This is usually because the driver did not see the biker or the cycle. In some cases like this one the biker made a bad judgment call, and the result was the death of his passenger,” remarked Stephen Ozcomert, an Atlanta injury lawyer who practices personal injury, accidents […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) March 9, 2012 – Tasers have their place in law enforcement. However, they must be used responsibly. “This is a troubling case from many angles,” says Stephen Ozcomert, an Atlanta injury lawyer who practices personal injury, accidents and malpractice law. “It is troubling from the point of view that the police officer who used a Taser on a mentally distressed man did so twice, despite being told the man would not harm anyone and was not armed. The man was off his bipolar drugs.” As a result of the man dying later in the hospital, […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) February 9, 2012 – Being flattened by a tractor-trailer typically does not guarantee one survives.

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) December 2, 2011 – Driving while distracted is taking far too many lives. It is not necessary to text or talk and drive at the same time. “We never used to have cell phones in vehicles, and we always got to where we were going, where there was a phone, and if we needed to use it, we did,” commented Robert Webb, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer with Webb & D’Orazio, a law firm specializing in personal injury, malpractice, criminal defense, and business law. “We paid attention to the road and others traveling around us.

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) November 18, 2011 – Blinking traffic lights often cause confusion. In this case, they caused a death. “While cities may have their reasons for reverting some traffic lights to blinking status after a certain designated hour, they can be confusing. This reported case is a clear example,” explained Robert Webb, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer with Webb & D’Orazio, a law firm specializing in personal injury, malpractice, criminal defense, and business law. “The young teen in this reported case, a 17-year-old, was a passenger in a car with his mother, when they were T-boned by […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) October 6, 2011 – It is hard to imagine a man freezing to death in his house, but it happened in this shocking case. “It simply defies logic,” said Robert Webb, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer with Webb & D’Orazio, a law firm specializing in personal injury, malpractice, criminal defense, and business law. “Why would a utility company limit the gas or electric to the home of a senior or low income housing resident in the winter? For money? To make the resident involuntarily reduce their power consumption? Something is drastically wrong with that picture.” […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) September 1, 2011 – Some cases involving a death may involve a breach of implied warranty. No two cases are ever alike, making the outcome unpredictable. “In this reported case, a driller was killed after the drill he was operating, a 380,000 pound Pit Viper 351, toppled over, throwing him from the cab,” said Stephen Ozcomert, an Atlanta injury lawyer who practices personal injury, accident and malpractice law. “The worker was dead on impact.

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) August 18, 2011 – If the car in this case had not been traveling so close to the cyclist, the man would not have suffered traumatic brain injury. “The cyclist in this reported case was severely injured by a car turning into a school driveway.

He sustained severe trauma to his head,” said Robert […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) August 10, 2011 – This wrongful death lawsuit had its origins in medical malpractice. Many wrongful death lawsuits are often associated with med mal. “This case had a bit of an unusual twist.

Ozcomert, an injury lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia, who practices personal injury, accidents and […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) July 7, 2011 – Following too close on the highway is obviously a terrible idea. In this case, both truckers involved in this crash were charged. “These two rigs were on the highway, one of them carrying a heavy load of steel beams and the other carrying an unknown cargo, when the unthinkable happened.

You have rights and those rights need to be protected. Most of all, you have the right to claim for compensation for your injuries, more […]

Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) May 23, 2011 – Offline paper contracts are based on established case law. Unfortunately, the Internet has changed things drastically when it comes to online contracts. “There is a whole history of established precedent for contract law; the kind of law based on a written contract, when both parties signed it and agreed to what was in the four corners of the document. They is also such a thing as verbal contracts, but they’re harder to prove if one of the parties denies the existence of a verbal contract,” said Robert Webb, an Atlanta personal […]
