Civil Rights/Governmental Liability

The attorneys at Eshman Begnaud Trial Lawyers are devoted to protecting the civil rights of all Georgians. When the government crosses the line – when police officers use excessive force or conduct an illegal search or arrest, or when inmates or prisoners have their constitutional rights violated – the attorneys at Eshman Begnaud Trial Lawyers step in to investigate cases and file suit to hold the government accountable for its actions. We handle police brutality/excessive force, illegal detention, police pursuit, First Amendment, inmate/prisoner cases, and others.

Construction/Workplace Liability

When workers are seriously injured or killed in a construction accident, industrial accident, or other work place accident, the injured workers, their families, and other lawyers turn to Eshman Begnaud Trial Lawyers to help investigate and litigate product liability claims, third party claims, and other avenues of recovery to ensure that injured workers and their families are as fully compensated for their losses as possible. We handle construction fall cases, crane accident cases, forklift accident cases, aerial work platform accident cases, other heavy equipment accident cases, inadequate machine guard cases, general OSHA violation cases, and others.

Serious Injury/Wrongful Death

The attorneys at Eshman Begnaud have successfully handled wrongful death cases, brain injury cases, spinal cord injury cases, amputation cases, and other types of serious injuries. Our clients and their families turn to us as aggressive advocates and trusted counselors to help them through these devastating circumstances. We focus on a case strategy that is specific and sensitive to each of our clients and their circumstances and that seeks to maximize the value of our clients’ cases to help compensate them for their injuries and losses.

Representative Results
