Atlanta Stabbing Victim Attorney

While gun crimes and shootings get ample press and media attention, violence from stabbing is also very real and prevalent. If you or a loved one have been injured in a stabbing, and this occurred on a business property, you likely have a lot of questions and concerns. Stabbing injuries can be serious and life-threatening, even fatal, and for those who survive a stabbing, the recovery can be just as long and difficult as in the case of a shooting.

As a stabbing victim, you may be worried about how you’ll pay the medical bills and potential lost wages from the missed time away from work that will come along with your recovery. To understand the full legal implications of your assault, discuss the issue with an experienced Atlanta stabbing victim attorney.

What to Do If You Are Injured in a Stabbing in Georgia

Medical professionals generally classify stab wounds as traumatic injuries. They can be extremely debilitating or life-threatening. If you are injured in a stabbing, seek medical attention immediately. Depending on the severity of the wound, call 911 and wait for an ambulance or rush to the nearest emergency room for treatment. Remember to get documentation from the doctors who treat you for your injuries, as full and immediate documentation can be helpful in pursuing damages. And as soon as you’re able, let the business owner know you were stabbed while on its property.

You should also contact the police right away. Stabbings are nearly always the result of someone perpetrating a violent crime. No matter the context of the assault and stabbing, it’s important to get a full and complete police report as soon as possible. This will aid law enforcement officials in apprehending the perpetrator and serve as evidence in civil court should you file a suit for damages or negligence.

The next step for a stabbing victim is to find an accomplished Atlanta stabbing victim attorney who can advocate for your rights in court. Financial compensation from the perpetrator of the stabbing – or from the business that did not provide adequate security – can help set your mind at ease regarding paying for medical bills and making up for lost earnings.

Negligence in Stabbing Cases

If you’ve been injured in a stabbing, the person who attacked you committed a crime and – if found guilty – can be liable for damages. Also, if you were lawfully on the property of a business at the time you were stabbed, the business or premises owner can also be liable for failing to provide adequate security. This is why it’s important to ensure the police officers who respond to the stabbing file a thorough report. You want to verify that the person who stabbed you is apprehended and brought to justice.

In many cases, owners or administrators of the property where the stabbing occurred can be found negligent if they failed to provide adequate security and these lapses led to the stabbing that caused your injuries. For example, if there is a drunk and disorderly patron at a bar or restaurant who is causing problems and the staff or management does not make this person leave, the establishment can be held liable if that same patron later attacks and stabs someone on the premises. The same may be found true for establishments that fail to provide adequate security cameras in parking lots or other areas or in places that fail to provide adequate supervision, such as schools or prisons. Witness accounts, as well as an investigation into the conditions at the facility where the stabbing occurred, often reveal less-than-adequate security precautions.

If you have ever experienced injury from a car accident then you are aware of how it can change your life physically and financially. I was so relieved to have Troy Kiber represent me. He treated me like a friend and not just another case on his calendar. He explained the process to me clearly and allowed me to make decisions based on what was best for me not just what would quickly resolve the case. I truly appreciate him for his thoroughness. I was very satisfied with the service I received and pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

I highly recommend the Dixon Firm

I have to say I am very impressed with The Dixon Firm. My case was very different then most injury cases because it involved my son and an injury at school. Most lawyers I looked into hiring were too afraid to take on my case. But not the Dixon firm! I was given a chance to be heard and Rod and his amazing staff and lawyers took on my case. Daniel Adamson was my lawyer and he communicated with me through it all! I was a little concerned with the pandemic that I’d be waiting forever but this was not the case, Daniel stayed on my case and worked diligently and kept in contact with me every step of the way. I highly recommend the Dixon Firm and ask for Daniel, he will not disappoint! Thanks Daniel for everything you did for me and my son!
