Cases Our Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys Handle:
In Georgia, at-fault drivers are liable for injuries or property damage they cause. Georgia drivers are required, by law, to carry the following type of insurance:
- Bodily Injury Liability coverage, with limits of at least $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident.
- Property Damage Liability coverage of $25,000 per accident.
In the unfortunate event you are in an accident, pull off out of traffic’s way if possible. Assess if anyone is injured and if so, call 911. Do not admit fault. Exchange insurance information and take photos, if possible. We recommend you consult with an experienced attorney without delay if you are having any sort of pain or discomfort following a crash.

Motorcycle accidents can be very serious, so it is important to carry the proper insurance coverage to protect yourself. Georgia requires the same insurance for motorcycle drivers as it does for those driving cars.
- $25,000 in Bodily Injury liability coverage for the injuries or death of one person in a single accident, and $50,000 limits for all persons in a single accident
- $25,000 in property damage coverage, to fix the damage you cause to another person’s car
However, in any motor vehicle crash, especially motorcycle accidents, $25,000 may barely cover any medical bills, let alone pain and suffering or lost wages. We highly recommend you consider Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist insurance to help further protect yourself. UM allows you to make a claim against your own insurance company.
Uber, Lyft, and other Rideshare Accidents
The Ruth Law Team has experience in handling cases for both Uber and Lyft drivers as well as Uber and Lyft passengers. If you were injured while driving or riding for a rideshare company, we may be able to help. Speak to an attorney who is familiar with the various coverage types that rideshare companies hold, and protect your rights.
Slip and Fall Accidents in Georgia, FL and Surrounding Areas
If you were injured at a commercial facility or someone’s home, we may be able to help. However, you must prove property owners were negligent in maintaining the property. Injuries could occur due to uneven floors, poor lighting, slippery floors, or hazards in the walkway. There are many factors involved in determining if a property owner is negligent, so consult with a personal injury attorney. We offer free consultations at (912) 378-3525.
Other Premise Liability
Not all premise liability cases involve a trip or a slip and fall. If you were hurt on a person or party's property, consider speaking to an attorney. However, keep in mind, the plaintiff must prove a person or party was negligent and failed to exercise a required duty of care.
Nursing Home Abuse
When the Covid-10 pandemic hit, families were barred from checking in on their loved ones. We are seeing more and more neglect cases since nursing home and ALF doors have reopened. Please contact us if you suspect your loved one may have been neglected or abused in a nursing home, memory care, or assisted living facility.
Signs of abuse or neglect may include:
- Bedsores or pressure ulcers
- Sudden changes in mood or appearance
- Urinary tract infections
- Positive test for Covid-19
We are committed to helping the elderly and those with physical or mental disabilities who are abused or neglected in a care facility.
