Biography

Kathy McArthur is a top-rated personal injury attorney, trucking accident attorney, and medical malpractice attorney near me & has obtained multiple successful MULTI-million dollar recoveries for clients.

Her firm ONLY handles SERIOUS bodily injury cases, wrongful death claims, medical misdiagnosis in GA and other states. The Firm limits its INJURY cases to: death cases, serious bodily injuries, like scarring, burn injuries, dislocated or broken bones, blindness, loss of hearing, organic brain damage, spinal cord injury or neck fracture.

Very substantial awards have also been obtained by her law firm (at trials or being settled just before trial started) for 7-figure & 8-figure amounts [$10,000,000 or higher].

While most recoveries for clients have been in Georgia, other substantial verdicts (at trial) obtained in cases in over a dozen other states, too.

Another type of civil litigation our legal team handles are product liability cases. These lawsuits provide for financial recovery for injury or death caused by a defective or dangerous product, tool, vehicle, or device. A variety of different theories can be alleged, such as failure to warn (when the bottle's label was not clear or complete) or the product later is shown (over time) that it kills or disables (e.g., vaginal mesh, Roundup brand weed control).

Motor vehicle deaths or grievous injury cases in GA are sometimes caused by unsafe and defective design, such as (in car accidents) a single lap seat belt, without a shoulder strap being also added. In Atlanta GA, Macon GA, Warner Robins, GA, and Gainesville GA.

The personal injury attorney has helped people harmed by nursing home abuse or extended care facilities. The post-COVID era brought nursing home abuse, nursing home neglect (mistreatment, beatings or other negligence) have grown.

Negligent security claims like hotel or apartment security lapses or failures, leading to rape or assault, or a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Can my adopted Mom kick me out since I’m 19 now?
A: In order to get an answer, look up you nearest Legal Aid office, where indigent citizens can obtain legal advice on certain types of legal matters. Most states have law that allow a parent to no longer support an able-bodied adult, after a statutorily fixed age, which is usually 18. If a special law covers ALL adopted children, only a New York attorney should be answering that question.
Q. I was injured on a piece of playground equipment. Unaware of what it did it collapsed and was injured seriously.
A: Cases like this have many criteria for being a viable case. The brief description you gave seems to indicate that you were on an apparatus, and then JUMPED off (or out of) the seat. When you landed, you believe that this triggered the fracture or vertebral compression in your back. Each state has laws that control whether or not a person who is partially or mostly at fault for injuries suffered, which might preclude you being able to sue.

First, all states set forth a time period for which a claim must be asserted. You need to look up personal injury lawyers in the State where this occurred and get a free consultation. In addition, all states generally have special rules that may shield a municipality (city or county) from being sued, or (if suit is possible) then will have a cap (limit) for which they will pay.

Additionally, you hopefully have other witnesses who can verify the time, date and how the injury was incurred.
