Ponton Law handles a variety of personal injury cases, including the following:
Accidental Drowning. Families across Georgia enjoy water activities to escape the heat and stay active. Still, pools should be kept safe for you and your children. A pool that fails to have proper safety features is a danger to all swimmers and if you have been harmed, contact us immediately.
Airport Injuries. Airports can be congested and sometimes dangerous places. Each airport should take steps to make sure that occupants are safe when getting to and from airplane terminals. Slip-and-falls can occur when pathways are not maintained properly.
Auto Accidents. Reckless drivers are a danger to us all. If you have been injured by someone, seek medical attention and contact us. Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and unnatural death in this country. Ponton Law has the experience to help you after an accident.
Brain Injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can have lifelong repercussions. A brain injury can cause memory and cognitive function loss. Those suffering from a brain injury can also suffer from:
- vision loss
- hearing impairment
- debilitating headaches
An experienced injury lawyer can help you get the full compensation you deserve for the brain injury you have suffered.
Burn Injuries. Burn injuries can happen when others have acted negligently. A burn can take significant time to heal, cause serious pain and suffering and leave lasting scarring. Treatment for burns can be expensive and you shouldn’t go through recovery alone.
Construction Accidents. Developers have an obligation to ensure that construction sites are safe and secure. Corporate profits should not be put in front of worker and bystander safety. If you have been injured while on the job, or while visiting or near a worksite, contact Ponton Law so we can work to ensure that the proper entity or person is held accountable.
Dog Bites. People are responsible for the actions of their pets. This means that a dog owner is responsible for any injuries caused by their dog. This is especially so when the dog owner knows their pet is dangerous to other people. Let us help to make sure that pet owners are held accountable for the actions of their aggressive animals.
DUI Injuries. Drinking and driving is a danger to us all. Driving impaired significantly decreases a driver’s reaction times and risk appreciation. While there are serious criminal consequences attached to drinking and driving, you will want to contact us to help you through the civil process.
MARTA Injuries. Ponton Law can also help you if you have been injured by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). For example, if you have been injured by a MARTA bus or train, or while at the bus stop or train station, James Ponton and his team can help ensure that MARTA is held accountable for those injuries.
Motorcycle Accidents. Most people are aware of how dangerous driving a motorcycle can be. If you have been injured while driving your motorcycle, contact us. All drivers need to take steps to ensure the safety of other drives, especially those operating motorcycles. Ponton Law has the experience to get you through the legal process and back on the road after an injury.
Negligent Security. Businesses and other associations have a responsibility to protect visitors. If there is a security risk, visitors must be warned and steps must be taken to limit those risks. Ponton Law can work to determine who should be held accountable for injuries suffered after a business has failed to protect its guests from known dangers.
Premises Liability. Businesses have a duty to inspect their premises and protect customers from known dangers. If you have been injured while shopping at or visiting a place of business, contact Ponton Law so we can help identify the responsible party and make sure you get complete compensation for your injuries.
Spinal Cord Injuries. Like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries can be permanently debilitating. Pain and suffering can be extreme when the spine has become injured. These types of injuries can occur in all types of situations including car accidents and slip and falls. Seek competent medical attention and then call James T. Ponton to get the professional legal service you deserve.
Trucking Accidents. Trucking is a stressful and difficult job. However, commercial truckers must exercise care when behind the wheel. Often, an employer can be held liable for the harm caused by the driver when he or she drivers recklessly. Ponton Law has dealt with truckers and trucking companies and we know how to manage your claim.
