How are Clayton County, Georgia Accidents Handled?

Fast and detailed investigation.  Usually, the process begins with investigating what happened at the accident scene.  Most Clayton County cities such as Jonesboro, College Park, Forest Park, Riverdale and others have their own police departments.  In addition, Clayton County has its own Police and Sheriff’s Departments.  Our office usually begins an accident investigation by obtaining the police report, interviewing police officers and eyewitnesses, getting patrol car video and 911 audio recordings.  On the medical side, we will obtain ambulance/EMS reports and emergency room records.  All of these are important and valuable sources of information.

Strong relationships.  Over the years, we have established relationships with local law enforcement agencies, accident reconstruction experts, medical offices and other professionals.  We regularly employ a support network of legal and medical professionals to put your case together.  Additionally, because we have been in Clayton County for 27 years, our attorneys and office staff are familiar with the local city and county government and court system in ways that attorneys from distant parts of the state or Metro area may not be.

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

Is Jonesboro or Clayton County, GA a good place to have an injury case? (Yes).

Can I get a great settlement in South Atlanta?  The fact is that most injury cases in Georgia settle without the need to file a lawsuit.  However, when lawsuits are necessary, Georgia law requires that you bring your lawsuit in either the jurisdiction in which the accident occurred or in the county in which the defendant lives, does business or is incorporated.  If you have been injured by a Clayton County resident or a business owned or operated in Clayton County, this is a good reason to hire a law firm located in Jonesboro in Clayton County, because recent history shows that even the threat of filing a lawsuit in Clayton County can help your case to settle fairly.

Insurance companies and defense lawyers fear Clayton County.  Why?  In recent years, Clayton County has gained a reputation as County that Insurance Companies fear.  This is because the citizens of our county understand the need to stand up for Justice in today’s society.  And, because our firm regularly files and takes cases to trial in Jonesboro and Clayton County, we believe this gives our clients an edge.

Great injury settlements come from preparation.  Cases that are carefully investigated and properly presented to the Insurance Company often settle, because the adjuster is convinced that the Plaintiff’s lawyer (your attorney) has put together a strong case.  Our Jonesboro personal injury lawyers will prepare your case as if it is going to trial before suit is even ready to be filed.  We send a message to the insurance company that if  you are not offered a fair settlement, we are prepared to file suit and continue to fight for you.
