How We Are Able To Help You

When you or a loved one have been injured by the negligence of another person or business, compensation is NOT automatic.
The burden is on you to prove the case. Insurance companies and defendants may deny or minimize your claim unless they know that you have the legal power to beat them in court.

Studies show that victims who hire an attorney generally end up taking home more after the law firm is paid than what insurance companies will typically pay in total to those who are without lawyers.

What the Negligent Person or Company Should Pay You

1
Medical expenses for past and future treatment and care
2
Lost pay, including time missed from work
3
Damage to your vehicle, home, or other property
4
Harms caused to your quality of life, current and future
5
Permanent injury, disability, and scars
6
Past and future pain and suffering
7
Any other damages that are caused by the injury

Time Limit to File an Injury Case or Claim in Atlanta

In most injury cases arising in Georgia you have two years to file a lawsuit in State or Federal Court. This is known as the statute of limitations. However, this does not mean you should delay in taking action. After an injury caused by negligence, it is wise to make a claim against the at-fault business or individual as soon as possible. This allows the defendant or his or her insurance company to begin the process of evaluating the case and setting aside proper and adequate insurance reserves. Often the case is settled before the statute of limitations expires.

Can My Case Be Settled Without Going to Court?

A good personal injury attorney prepares each case as if it were going to court. Statistically, our firm— like almost every injury law office—is able to settle the vast majority of cases without filing a lawsuit. Even cases that are filed in court often settle before they reach trial. However, the difference between a great settlement and a small or below-average result often comes down to preparation and the reputation of the law firm. Adjusters and insurance defense lawyers rarely offer top dollar—unless policy limits are reached—until and unless the insurance company is convinced you and your attorneys can take them to court and win. Our aim is to prepare every case to be courtroom ready. This allows us to settle when a fair offer is made, while being ready to fight for you if justice is not being served-up.

How Long Does It Take To Receive a Settlement Check?

In a personal injury case, the answer to this question often depends on several factors, such as how severe your injuries are, whether the insurance company has decided to fight liability (fault) or the amount of the insurance policy. As a rule of thumb, after a negotiated settlement is reached, most settlement check arrive within several weeks to a month after your case settles with the insurance company.

A Few Examples of Atlanta Legal Cases We Accept:

1

Car Accident Injury Cases:

Our firm regularly handles car accident claims. Many of these accidents happen due to rear-end collisions, head- on crashes, failures to yield, speeding or driving too fast for conditions, or distracted or reckless driving. In most of these cases, an attorney can help you immediately by offering advice about what to do first after an accident and how to avoid common errors and legal pitfalls, such as giving an un-represented recorded statement to the at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster.

2

Truck Accident Claims:

Large truck accidents involving semi-trucks and 18- wheelers in or near Atlanta should be investigated immediately, before evidence can disappear. Call an attorney experienced in trucking cases as soon as possible. Even if your truck wreck happened weeks or months ago, there is still much that can be done to investigate and prove the fault of the truck driver or the carrier. Very few Atlanta law firms can match the twenty years of experience we have in handling catastrophic injuries and wrongful death trucking cases.

3

Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Injuries:

Motorcycle accidents are not simply two-wheeled car accidents. Many motorists do not see the bike-riding victims they injure or kill, and then try to blame the biker. To make matters worse, the injuries suffered in motorcycle crashes are often much worse than other motor-vehicle accidents due to the lack of protection surrounding the motorcyclist. We have recovered multi- million dollar settlements and verdicts for head injuries, paralysis, and serious back and neck injuries resulting from motorcycle and car or truck collisions.

4

Intoxicated Driving Injury Cases:

We specialize in handling car and truck and pedestrian accident cases caused by drunk, drugged, and intoxicated drivers. Cases we have handled include both drivers and pedestrians hit by drunk or high drivers. In many cases, claims are also investigated and brought against taverns, bars, or restaurants that may have contributed to the accident by over-serving alcohol.

5
