Bass Law handles personal injury cases in all counties throughout the States of Georgia and Florida. Our Georgia practice is currently focused in and around Savannah. In addition, we often affiliate with attorneys to represent clients in other states. If you or a family member has suffered a bodily injury because of someone else’s negligence or reckless actions, you may be entitled to file a claim against the at-fault party.
It is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to avoid jeopardizing your case. These cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay any fees unless we recover a settlement for you. At Bass Law, we believe that the foundation of our success is the hard work, compassion, expertise and attention to detail which we inject into each client’s case.
We are committed to achieving excellent results for our clients. As a small firm, we are able to devote extensive time and attention to each case that we handle and to promptly respond to each client’s needs. We develop relationships with our clients, taking the time to truly understand their injuries and the effects that the injuries have had on their lives.
Because these cases often involve complex legal issues, it is critical that you hire an attorney who is experienced in this area of law. Many attorneys hold themselves out as personal injury attorneys, yet they refer their clients’ cases to outside counsel if they are unable to settle their cases without having to go to court. You can be assured that we will handle your case until its resolution, whether it is settled pre-suit or resolved at any point up through and including trial.

Automobile AccidentsThere are over 10 million motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. each year. On average, 37,000 people die in car accidents each year, and Georgia averages over 1,200 fatalities per year. Being injured in an automobile accident often results not only in physical pain but in a great deal of stress. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced and compassionate automobile accident attorney to represent you.
Bicycle AccidentsThere is a growing number of cyclists as a result of individuals seeking healthier lifestyles and hoping to avoid rising gas costs by depending on their bicycles rather than automobiles for daily transportation. Bicycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries or death to cyclists because they ride with no physical protection except a helmet. An injured rider may face months or even years of medical treatment, lost wages, rehabilitation and permanent disability. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced bicycle accident attorney to represent you.
Boating AccidentsIn the coastal areas of Georgia, many devastating injuries occur each year on both large and small boats, as well as on jet skis, kayaks and canoes. Often, the accident is caused by the negligent conduct of an inexperienced boater or of a boater who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. As an avid boater herself, Dondra understands the complexity of boating accident cases and is well-versed in the local navigational laws and rules which are critical to handling these types of cases. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced boating accident attorney to represent you.
Bus AccidentsPublic buses, shuttles, private motor coaches, airport passenger vans and commercial buses shuttle passengers over nearly 1 billion miles of road and highway each year in the United States. According to NHTSA, an average of 18 school-age children die in school transportation-related crashes each year, and thousands of other school age children are injured in bus accidents annually. Bus accidents tend to be particularly catastrophic due to the fact that buses tend not to have seat belts and passenger buses have high centers of gravity, thereby making them more susceptible to roll-over accidents. Bus accident cases can be legally complicated, as they may involve both private and public defendants. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced bus accident attorney to represent you.
Childhood Sexual AbuseChildhood sexual abuse is a terrible tragedy that can have a long-lasting effect on the victim. Often, children are reluctant to discuss the abuse and may not tell anyone about it for some time. Few victims and their families are aware that, apart from criminal prosecution of the aggressor, there may be civil compensation available to them in these horrific instances. Childhood sexual abuse lawsuits give abuse victims the right to make a claim for damages against an organization or entity that tragically allowed abuse, looked the other way or put an abuser in a position to do wrong. Most states, including Georgia and Florida, allow longer periods of time for these claims to be brought due to their unique circumstances so do not hesitate to contact an attorney even if the abuse occurred many years ago. With Bass Law, you are guaranteed a compassionate representation which often helps an abuse victim find his voice and regain some sense of control of his life. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced child sexual abuse attorney to represent you.
Dog BitesDog bites and animal attacks can cause emotional trauma, infection, painful lacerations, punctures, abrasions, crush injuries and permanent scars. Victims of an animal attack may incur substantial medical bills for immediate care and treatment of their injuries. Years after an attack, they may need plastic or cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of scars. Information related to the dog’s history must often be gathered in order for a person injured by a dog bite to have any chance to recover damages. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced dog bite attorney to represent you.
Motorcycle AccidentsIt is evident that riding a motorcycle carries its own unique injury risks. From susceptibility to road and weather conditions to lack of collision protection, there are many causes of motorcycle accidents that are specific to riders. Furthermore, motorcycle accidents regularly occur because automobile drivers are not vigilant in maintaining a lookout for motorcycles. The investigation of these accidents is made more complicated by the inherent bias that often exists with members of law enforcement and the public against motorcycles. Therefore, it is critical to consult an attorney as soon as possible after you are involved in a motorcycle accident. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to represent you.
Nursing Home AbuseWhen nursing home neglect or abuse occurs, the victim is often helpless to prevent it and to communicate concerns to someone who can do something about it. Some signs of nursing home neglect or abuse include dehydration, bed sores, inadequate clothing, malnutrition and weight loss, frequent falls and a delay between an incident causing an injury and notifying a doctor. Nursing home abuse does not always involve physical abuse, but may also involve sexual abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse and general medical neglect. If you suspect nursing home neglect or abuse, you will want to consult an attorney to investigate the matter, to make sure that needed care is immediately provided to the victim and to make sure that the victim and the family receive the full and fair compensation they need and deserve. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced nursing home abuse attorney to represent you.
Pedestrian AccidentsGeorgia’s pedestrian death rate is 25 percent higher than the national rate and, according to recent statistics published by the Georgia Department of Transportation, the number of pedestrians struck and killed by motor vehicles is on the rise. Savannah is known as a “walking city” and it is not uncommon to see large numbers of tourists exploring the city on foot. Typical injuries in these cases include broken bones, spinal cord injuries and head injuries. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced pedestrian accident attorney to represent you.
Premises LiabilityPremises liability cases encompass a wide range of situations, but the most common are inadequate or negligent security and slips and falls. Serious accidents related to premises liability and inadequate security can involve improperly built stairs, flaws in new construction, wet floors, uneven walkways and poorly lit parking lots on properties such as hotels, apartments, bars and restaurants, supermarkets, office buildings, hospitals and sports stadiums. Because the site of the accident is often changed shortly after the accident through repairs, upgrades or cleaning, it is crucial that you consult an attorney shortly after the accident. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced premises liability attorney to represent you.
Traumatic Brain InjuryTraumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs anytime there is trauma or force to the brain causing injury. It does not always involve a direct blow to the head. A TBI can be fatal, and it can cause very obvious physical and mental impairment, but it is often referred to as an invisible disability because the consequences are not always obvious to the observer, even when they radically change the victim’s life. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney to represent you.
Truck AccidentsOne of the most terrifying experiences that an automobile driver can face is an accident with a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler or semi truck. Due to the fact that these accidents often occur on highways or other major roadways, a significant number of these accidents result in the driver being seriously injured or killed. As Dondra spent many years representing truck drivers in these types of accidents, she has an inside view of how trucking companies defend these claims, as well as a thorough understanding of the federal regulations that govern the trucking industry. When you hire Bass Law, you can ensure your legal rights are protected while relying on an experienced truck accident attorney to represent you.
