Could there be a Wrongful Death Claim from the recent Braves Fan Fall?

Tragedy occurred on Monday when a Braves fan flipped over a railing and fell 65 feet to his death.  Whenever a death occurs it is important for the authorities to investigate for potential foul play, for a safety investigation to occur to prevent similar accidents, and for the surviving a spouse and family to have the facts reviewed for a potential wrongful death claim.  In the recent fall and death at the Braves game, the police do not believe anyone caused the young man to fall because witnesses saw him alone just before the fall.

Attorney Richard Griffin specializes in Georgia wrongful death claims. For a wrongful death claim to arise from this terrible fall there would have to be negligence that caused the fall. This negligence could include a defective rail or a slippery floor, but from the initial reports neither of these possibilities has been mentioned. The police have not released any information regarding alcohol being involved in this fall, but intoxication or any unsafe actions taken by the man that contributed to his fall would be possible defenses raised in any wrongful death lawsuit.

The Griffin Law Firm will gladly provide a free consultation for anyone who has a personal injury, wrongful death, workers compensation, or social security disability. For your consultation call 877-PAIN-LAW (877-724-6529).

New Worker’s Compensation Settlement Calculator tells you what your claim is worth.

ImageAtlanta worker’s compensation lawyer Richard Griffin of the Griffin Law Firm is asked this question by almost every potential worker’s compensation client that calls.  Now you can use our new Worker’s Compensation Settlement Calculator to have a projection of the settlement value of your claim. 

However, even though it helps a lot to know that settlement range, this is only the first step towards a fair settlement.  Hiring our PAIN LAW attorneys for your worker’s compensation claim will allow us to fight to get you all of the medical benefits and income benefits that you are entitled to receive.  Adjusters often will play the no game and refuse to authorize the medical treatment and testing that the doctors say you need.  The adjusters also will often delay or refuse to start the weekly checks you need to survive.

Attorney Richard Griffin knows Georgia worker’s compensation law and is here to even the playing field for injured worker’s.  Call us today at 877-PAIN-LAW (877-724-6529) or submit your claim to us at [Free Worker’s Compensation Settlement Calculator].

Griffin Law Firm Launches a new PAIN LAW website

If you are in pain, then you need the law.  I recommend you call 877-PAIN-LAW.

Who is PAIN LAW?  PAIN LAW references the new marketing campaign from attorney Richard Griffin and the Griffin Law Firm.  Our PAIN LAW campaign is centered around our new website at which provides extensive and helpful information about personal injury, wrongful death, worker’s compensation, or social security disability claims.  We also use an easy to remember phone number of 877-PAIN-LAW (877-724-6529).

Why do we call ourselves PAIN LAW?  “PAIN LAW” best describes our clients and potential clients.  They are in pain, and they need the law to help them be compensated for their damages.  The Griffin Law Firm has successfully helping people with their auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, dog bite, slip and fall, or on the job accident for nearly 20 years.  Our focus has always been to help injured people and their families fully recover for their injury claim so they can put their lives back together.

How is PAIN LAW different?  The PAIN LAW attorneys at the Griffin Law Firm provide the best possible customer service while delivering the best possible results.  Many attorneys are reluctant to provide a lot of information to their potential clients in their free consultations and websites.  I, attorney Richard Griffin, have a different approach.  I believe that I should provide you with as much information as possible in my legal consultations and on my website to accomplish the following:

  1. It establishes that I am an expert in personal injury, wrongful death, worker’s comp, and social security disability.
  2. It allows you to know the complexity of the process so you know you need the help of a good attorney.
  3. I want you to know that your claim could be worth a lot of money and that you really need to make sure you have an attorney to fight for you.

Which attorney should I hire?   Hiring the right attorney is the most important decision you will make about your claim.  This decision will determine how smoothly the claim process will go, as well as, how much money you will recover.  The legal skill, the customer service, and the ability to deliver outstanding results differs greatly from attorney to attorney.

I believe that you should always read and review the reviews, the firm awards, and the firm settlements and verdicts before hiring any attorney.  This is why I created a “How do you decide?”  page on our new PAIN LAW website that allows you to quickly review these vital areas when you are considering hiring the Griffin Law Firm.  If the attorney that you are considering doesn’t have these three areas fully documented for your review, then I would recommend you keep looking.

Free Consultation or Case Evaluation:  A great website can be extremely helpful, but nothing beats a phone call with our PAIN LAW attorneys at 877-PAIN-LAW (877-724-6529).  You can also send us an email about your case to [Case Evaluation]
