Accidents can happen almost anytime, anywhere, when businesses and organizations are careless in the execution of their duties and responsibilities. In addition to automobile and truck accidents, Josh Tucker has successful litigation experience handling ATV, four-wheeler, motorcycle, maritime, boat, and jet ski accidents, as well as sporting injuries.
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common type of accidents, and one of the most easily preventable-it is the responsibility of businesses and organizations to ensure that the spaces they open to the public are safe for the public to occupy. When someone you rely on for your safety and welfare neglects their duties and causes you harm or injury, it is their responsibility to make things right with you and your health and wellbeing.
People with animals are responsible for managing them in a way that prevents injury to other people or animals. It is not simply enough for a pet owner to have a pet on a leash or in a home-pets must be controlled in a way that they cannot cause injury to others. If you or your pet have been injured by someone else's animal, Josh has experience with these cases and can help you repair the damage, whether it is a dog bite, cat scratch, or injury from any kind of domesticated animal.
Medical professionals and facilities do not just have moral and ethical codes that guide the treatment they provide, they operate under strict legal guidelines that are in place to make certain their patients receive the appropriate care, at the right time, using the right tools and medications, with the proper medical staff. If you have suffered unnecessarily or received additional injury as the result of poor, untimely, or otherwise negligent care from a medical professional, it is your right and responsibility to make certain that justice is served, to help prevent future patients from needless discomfort.
Nursing homes are also very heavily regulated because abuse and neglect in them are so common. While abuse and neglect are not the everyday occurrences they once were, in large part because of regulations, it is still too common to find cases of dehydration, bedsores, malnutrition, fall injuries, and even assault cases in the elder care of most every community. Josh Tucker believes that the true measure of a society is how it cares for its weakest and most vulnerable members. If you or a member of your family has suffered while in the care of a nursing home, or at the hands of a home health care worker, give us a call.
Many people believe that because of the notoriety of asbestos litigation that has been going on since the 1970s, harm from asbestos must also be a thing of the past, but that is far from true. Indeed, because of the significant expense of the disposal of hazardous asbestos materials, which were common in buildings built anytime between the late 1800s and the 1970s, many contractors will simply ignore the presence of asbestos in buildings, or choose not to look for it at all. The simple act of replacing flooring from a home built in 1960 can cause asbestos fibers to become loose in the air, and cause or be partially responsible for illnesses such as malignant lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis, all of which are extraordinarily painful to suffer from, and extremely expensive to treat. But there are legal remedies available to anyone who has suffered from exposure to asbestos at any point in their lives, and Josh Tucker is ready to guide you through that legal process.
There are none who should be more honored and cared for in our nation than the men and women who fight so valiantly and selflessly to protect the rest of us. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The headlines from the past several years of the dangerous neglect at Veterans Administration hospitals across our country is unfortunately just the tip of the iceberg, and highlighted spectacular cases of the everyday battles our soldiers have to face once they finally make it home from war. Our Statesboro veterans drive to Augusta time and time again to be turned around and sent home to fill out paperwork that was lost, for appointments that were cancelled, and without necessary medications or prosthetics or necessary referrals-it is unconscionable, unjust, and un-American. Josh Tucker can advocate for you to get you the services you need, and that you deserve. You were there for us, and we can be there for you.
Employers fight workers' compensation claims because for every claim that is paid out, the insurance premium the employer must pay typically increases. At many companies, there is even a person who receives a bonus for keeping down workers' compensation claims (regardless of whether workplace injuries are correspondingly low). Georgia was one of the first states to give workers the right to sue their employers for creating or maintaining unsafe work environments, and Josh Tucker is proud to represent workers that have suffered workplace injury through accidents, negligence, or design flaws.
