Our firm is not a "general law practice." Rather, for over a decade we have dedicated ourselves to developing experience and expertise in one area: representing people and businesses that have been killed, significantly injured or financially harmed by the negligent or wrongful conduct of others.
Within that specific area, over the years we have evaluated factual scenarios of virtually every type and pursued cases under many different legal theories. If you or a friend or family member has suffered serious injury or significant financial harm for any reason that was the fault of someone else, we stand ready and equipped to speak with you about your situation at no cost, consider your potential case, and if merited, pursue it aggressively.
That said, there are some types of cases that we have handled more often than others in the last decade. Through these cases we have developed particularized areas of expertise within our already limited field. If you think you may have a potential case in one of these areas, please contact us immediately so we can bring our experience to bear for you.
PRODUCT FAILURES, MALFUNCTIONS OR DEFECTS
Have you suffered a tire blowout or tread separation that led to a crash? Did your seat belt fail to protect you or a loved one in a collision? Did one of your child's toys or safety equipment malfunction and result in injury to them? Did you have a medical device that failed, or take a prescription drug, that led to a catastrophic result? These are just a few examples of what we call "products liability" cases, and our firm has been dedicated to helping clients in such cases since the day we were formed. Not every firm is equipped handle products liability cases because of their complexity and expense, but ours is. If you believe a product of any kind failed, malfunctioned or was defective and a serious injury or death occurred, please contact us to see if we can help you or your family.
WRECKS INVOLVING TRACTOR-TRAILERS OR COMMERCIAL VANS OR TRUCKS
Were you or a loved one seriously injured because of a collision with a tractor-trailer, dumptruck, garbage truck, commercial van, work truck or other driver who was "on the job"? Many lawyers claim to be equipped to handle such cases, but to maximize the value, you need a firm with specific experience navigating the many federal and state rules and regulations that govern commercial vehicles. Conley Griggs Partin LLP is such a firm. We have tried or settled many types of commercial vehicle cases over the years and from that experience, developed the experience to get into the details that makes these cases from different from other automobile collision cases.
BAD REPAIRS AT A VEHICLE OR TIRE REPAIR SHOP THAT LEAD TO A WRECK
Did you or a family member have a vehicle serviced or repaired at a tire shop, auto care facility, or automobile dealer and after the service was done, experienced a vehicle malfunction or failure that led to a serious crash or injuries? Our firm has handled a number of cases involving situations in which negligent repairs or shoddy inspections at such facilities led to serious injuries, and we are one of the few firms in Georgia that we are aware of that have developed emphasis and expertise in the these types of cases. If you believe this situation occurred to you or a family member, contact us immediately.
INJURIES OR DEATH ON A CONSTRUCTION SITE OR WORKSITE
Our firm does not handle classic "workers' compensation" cases -- cases against employers for recovery under Georgia workers' compensation laws. On a number of occasions, however, we have evaluated cases that happened on a construction site or worksite and discovered that a case existed because someone other than your employer caused the injury or death. These cases include situations where another contractor on the job was negligent and caused an injury, or a product located on the job failed or was defective and resulted in injury or death. If you or a family member or friend were injured or killed while on the job but believe someone other than the employer was negligent in causing the incident or that a dangerous product was the cause, please contact us for a further evaluation.
BUSINESS FRAUD OR BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY CASES
Dating back to involvement in the Six Flags v. Time Warner case in 1998 while at another firm (a $454 million verdict based on breach of fiduciary duty which was upheld by the Georgia Court of Appeals), our lawyers have been involved in commercial disputes in which a business partner, joint venturer or professional in a position of trust with a client has violated duties of trust and fair dealing with the client, causing significant financial losses to the client. If you have a case in which any person placed in a position of trust (or fiduciary role) has treated you fraudulently or unfairly, please call upon us and our experience in such cases to help you evaluate the situation and, if merited, work with you to pursue a claim.
