Boldly Pursuing MAXIMUM RECOVERY for Your Injuries
Personal Injury & Accident Attorney Representation
Focused, Experienced, Dedicated, Compassionate, Fierce
When you need a Fighter.
We serve the following areas:
Personal Injury Negligence
A Personal Injury Attorney pursues the negligent actions of a defendant when seeking recovery for the injured. The plaintiff must have proof the defendant owed them a duty of care, but failed to exercise reasonable precautions causing bodily trauma. Duty of Care is the standard responsibility of a reasonable person in a similar situation in keeping others from being harmed. A breach of that duty may cause another to be hurt for failing to keep people protected from injuries or death in an Atlanta accident or other type of case.
The plaintiff's lawyer brings forth the results for damages caused by negligence in breaching their responsibility for reasonable Duty of Care in Georgia. Providing proof that the at fault party was unreasonable in protecting others and causing harm is outlined through:
Duty of Care - Duty owed to others to keep them free from personal injury. It's ordinary care that any standard reasonable person would use to avoid harming others. It should be established that the defendant owed the plaintiff such a duty.
Breach of Care - Proof the defendant failed to provide or failed to exercise reasonable and standard duty of care.
Causation - The breach of care is what caused the plaintiff to be afflicted with injuries or death.
Damages - The attorney brings forth wrongful damages and losses that were suffered due to the breach.
Personal Injury Attorney ADVANTAGE
There are several CRUCIAL ADVANTAGES in having legal representation from a Personal Injury Lawyer. Most people have no idea what their case is worth or how to deal with an unfair insurance company in negotiating a claim settlement. After an Atlanta accident, victims unknowingly allow the insurer to decide the amount of compensation they will provide, not realizing they are being shorted a substantial amount of money. Having no knowledge of tactics insurers use to provide minimal settlements, the injured party is completely taken advantage of by an unfair adjuster trained to reduce payouts.
ADVANTAGES of having legal intervention from a lawyer are numerous after being injured by a negligent party which includes:
An experienced and qualified Personal Injury Attorney understands what a case is really worth and can pursue it on your behalf.
A legal advocate knows how to battle and overcome unfair insurer tactics used to short change victim claims.
Skillfully negotiates on your behalf, removing the struggle, the stress and battle of trying to recover what is rightfully owed you.
Knowledgeable in Georgia injury law, the legal process and how to successfully pursue what is owed the victim.
Often allows you to receive a substantially larger offer than without having a lawyer.
Having legal representation alerts the insurer you are prepared to file a lawsuit, which they want to avoid at all costs.

Atlanta Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury attorney accident cases all around Atlanta are common, being the largest metropolitan area in Georgia. Bodily harm may come from a vehicle collision, work accident, premises liability, nursing home abuse, or medical malpractice claim or lawsuit. Catastrophic injuries can affect the whole family for a very long period of time, leaving victims severely harmed or permanently disabled. Wrongful death is a tragic and horrific ending in some cases where family members lose a loved one due to death. Here are some of the many types of cases the Nick Schnyder Law Firm, LLC handles:
Auto Accident - Car crash is the most common type. Drivers become careless and irresponsible causing injuries from mild to severe to absolutely catastrophic. Even with seat belts, cars nor passengers can withstand the brutal impact of a crash. Many end up in the hospital, with some suffering long-term devastation and disability and others death.
Truck Collision - Large oversized vehicles on the roads include cement, garbage and dump trucks, semis, tankers, and 18 wheelers that can flatten a car in a moment. Truck accident injuries can be tragic and long-standing when a smaller vehicle meets the enormous size and weight of a large vehicle on Atlanta roads.
Motorcycle Wreck - Due to the small size, with no body protection, a rider can sustain life threatening affliction, if not death, due to the impact and speed of another vehicle. Even with a protective helmet, the result can be substantial causing life-long health problems. Due harm being so common and severe due to negligence, it is important to seek a lawyer as soon as possible.
Drunk Driving - Drunk driving continues to cause horrific personal injury and wrongful death in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, affecting our families and loved ones who have been affected by a DUI accident. The battle continues as attorneys pursue insurance companies who must take on the burden of having to cover the enormous expenses for damage and loss compensation of those who injured others through negligent and illegal behavior.
Pedestrian - People walking onto the road, in a crosswalk at intersections, along sidewalks or maybe in a parking lot. An impact can be severe if a victim is hit by a vehicle no matter what the size. Being struck by any moving car can cause immense loss and damage to a human body that has nothing standing between them and a moving vehicle.
Premises Liability - Being on someone's property, people become subject to unsafe circumstances causing personal injury. The premises could be a retail store, a home, grocery store, shopping mall, airport, hotel or construction site. Owners or those in control of the property have a legal duty to keep others safe, but often carelessly fail to uphold that duty.
Construction Accident - The construction industry experiences frequent negligent accidents on job sites where employees, subcontractors and visitors alike are exposed to moving equipment, cranes, falling objects, collapsing structures, unsafe ladders, under-trained employees and faulty machinery. Securing a Personal Injury Attorney may be common for legal intervention due to dangerous Atlanta job sites.
Nursing Home Abuse - Elderly victims can experience abuse and severe neglect while they are under the care of a Georgia nursing home facility or in long-term care. Nurses, assistants and employees can inflict harm to residents by abusing or neglecting their needs. Injuries can result from falling, malnutrition, medication errors, bruises, cuts or bed sores.
Medical Malpractice - Health care professionals including Atlanta doctors, surgeons, nurses, assistants or technicians can cause devastation to a patient through negligence or carelessness. This can include surgical errors, misdiagnosing a patient, child birth trauma, or prescription error. Serious harm, loss and damage can afflict victims of malpractice, including the loss and death of a patient.
Wrongful Death - The worst result of an accident is death. These victims don't get a chance to move on with their life. Injuries leading to wrongful death is permanent. No lawsuit and no amount of restitution is able to bring them back. Surviving members of the family and the decedent's estate file a lawsuit.
Statute of Limitations in Georgia typically requires cases be filed within two years from the date of injury, otherwise no claim for restitution and compensation can be made. The time limit for government, such as city, county and state entities throughout Georgia can be as little as six months.

Personal Injury Claim
Nick Schnyder, Personal Injury Lawyer, investigates, reviews and compiles accident damages to seek claim compensation for Atlanta victims. A claim is initiated by the victim seeking monetary recovery for negligence. Taken into account are medical expenses incurred, lost wages and income, property damage and loss, along with pain and suffering endured. Expenses and values incorporated into your claim for restitution and compensation may include the following:
Medical Expenses - Expenses incurred along with future medical care expenses needed due to injuries
Lost Wages & Earnings - Claim from wage loss from being unable to work, in addition to future earnings affected
Property Damage - Compensation for damage to property such as a car, truck or motorcycle
Pain & Suffering - Physical pain and emotional suffering from injuries affecting your life

Personal Injury at Atlanta Hospitals
Personal Injury Attorney intervention may be required for negligent accidents treated at Atlanta area hospitals. Bodily harm may include wounds, gashes, broken bones, back, face or head trauma, burns, or loss of limbs. Incidents affecting the back can cause pain for any amount of time, depending on the severity. Lawyer Nick Schnyder knows that harm to the face, eyes or ears are a tragedy for anyone who has been gashed or disfigured with scarring, or lost their eyesight or hearing from an accident. These can be temporary or long-lasting issues with longer-term recovery periods, but unfortunately some may be permanent, and yet sadly for others and their loved ones, the result can end in death.
Gashes & Skin Laceration - Any type of trauma to the skin from gashes and lacerations will likely require medical assistance at an Atlanta hospital emergency center to close the wound. In many instances, this will cause scarring from a deep gash. Presenting itself from injuries anywhere on the body, it is usually worse when it affects the facial area and the features of the victim.
Burns - Burns cause skin cells to die, due to severe heat, fire, scalds, chemical hazard or an explosion from flammable material resulting in injury or fatal death. This can be caused by a building fire, defective product, a premises liability, or an Atlanta car accident. A first degree burn is the least harmful which involves the first skin layer with pain and swelling. A second degree burn goes deeper to the second layer of skin with pain, blisters and thickened skin surface. A third degree burn can be quite severe that affects up to the third layer of skin causing a possible infection, along with extreme scarring and pain.
Facial Wounds Including Eyes, Ears and Mouth - Wounds to a victim's face can cause shame, sensitivity and intense stress. Any trauma to the face or harm to eyes, ears or mouth are of concern to a Personal Injury Attorney due to long-term consequences. It may include deformity, nose damage, loss of teeth or end in permanent scarring. The face is a person's identity, so facial issues can be extremely concerning and sensitive for the injured. Wounds to the eyes, ears or mouth can tragically affect senses, especially if it results in sight or hearing loss.
Broken Bones & Fractures - Any broken bone is an emergency situation that needs to be attended to. Fractures and broken bones stem from an object impacting the body from colliding with something. This is common in car accidents requiring lawyer assistance in Atlanta, and can be due to a fall, a falling object, or anything that causes the body to compress hard against the bones. Depending on the extent, this can present future issues, depending on the body part that took the blow. Broken back or neck injuries are extremely serious and can result in long-term disability, paralysis or even death.
Abdomen & Organ Injury - Blunt force to the abdomen can result in devastation to major and vital organs. A forceful blow directed at the abdomen where organs are housed can cause extensive damage to a body. Whether it was a pedestrian or vehicle accident, a very hard fall or an object hitting at high speed can cause a violent blow with extreme trauma. Any penetrating object can damage the inside of a human body that may rupture vital organs such as a liver, spleen, stomach or lungs and may include hospitalization and surgery.
Head Trauma - With head trauma, the brain can sustain severe damage depending on the force used. This may be caused by a strong impact to the head by a fall, being hit violently, or a vehicle collision. We handle traumatic brain injuries that can result in catastrophic damage to a victim. Personal injury attorney intervention is important for dangerous Atlanta wrecks that result in a fractured skull, a concussion, cause a hemorrhage, seizure or coma. Recovery can be slow with manifesting symptoms such as coordination problems, poor memory issues, or unusual change in behavior that can affect a victim's future and ability to function normally. Head trauma causing the brain to be injured can have catastrophic and severe effects.
Spinal Cord Injury - Another catastrophic accident cause is spinal cord damage that affects the cord or nerves running down the center part of a back. Any blow to the vertebrae or discs can seriously affect the nerves that cause the brain and body to function correctly. This can be temporary or permanent involving hospital or intensive care. Depending on the seriousness of the trauma, the nerve signals can become injured and cause paralysis leaving the victim unable to walk or move, with loss of sensation. Paraplegia results in loss of movement without affecting the arms. Quadriplegia results in partial or total loss of the torso and all limbs.

Catastrophic Personal Injury
In any type of catastrophic accident, it is crucial to secure a Personal Injury Attorney for serious life-altering legal representation in Atlanta. This is a life-changing event which is extremely severe and, for some, can result in permanent disability or fatality. Major and severe long-term consequences affect the victim's ability to work or earn any type of living, which can also affect the whole family in regards to their financial well-being. We understand those who have been injured from encountering this type of trauma can suffer immeasurable damage, not only physically but emotionally. This can cause the victim unimaginable pain and suffering that will likely never be restored to normal. For some, it can turn fatal resulting in wrongful death. Extreme bodily injuries have become catastrophic to the victim, family members and loved ones alike. While some heal after an accident, others with various types of catastrophic injury may never recover. Some may be long-term processes, yet for others, several surgeries and long-term or lifetime medical care may be required, with possible nursing home assistance. Severe impact may result in total permanent disability or even wrongful death. It is critical to have a Personal Injury Attorney represent any case in Atlanta or in the state of Georgia that results in:
Traumatic brain or skull injury
Spine & spinal cord damage
Loss of movement and paralysis
Dismemberment or amputation of legs or arms
Coma and intensive care
Loss of sight or hearing
Serious multiple bone fractures
Severe skin burns or scarring
Securing strong legal counsel from a catastrophic injury lawyer is absolutely crucial due to the severity of this type of lawsuit. The negligent or willful party (or parties) who caused and are responsible for the accident will be liable to make the victim financially whole again. Although no amount of money can restore what has been lost, nor a lawsuit, every possible source of compensation will be located from the liable parties involved.
