WE KNOW FLORIDA AND GEORGIA PERSONAL INJURY LAW
- Are you a Georgia resident injured in Florida?The laws are different in each state and can make a big difference in your case. You need an attorney who understands both Georgia and Florida law to make sure those laws protect your rights and work to your advantage.
- Are You a Florida resident injured in Georgia?Georgia laws will govern and there are some important advantages in accident cases. Disadvantages, however, include a much shorter time period for bringing your claim, including as short as six months to bring a claim against a municipality. The trial lawyers of Barnes & Cohen, P.A., are knowledgeable and experienced in Georgia and Florida laws, and we know how the laws of each state can be best applied to our client’s benefit.
- Military personnel: We work with TRICARE, the VA and Navy legal on many of our cases for servicemen and servicewomen. Barnes & Cohen cares about our men and women in the military. If you or your loved one has suffered a tragic injury, we are here to help.
- If you were bit by a dog, you should know that Florida has strict liability laws regarding dog bites, while Georgia law effectively gives dog owners “one free bite” if the owner did not know that the dog posed a danger to others. The owner can claim ignorance the first time around. You need an experienced law firm to investigate and help you get the compensation you deserve.
