Car accidents are a common cause of personal injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 2 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle accidents.
A slip and fall accident can happen virtually anywhere: at a store or restaurant, on the street, at a sports stadium, or in a parking lot. Property owners and municipalities have a duty to keep their premises safe.
A car or passenger truck is no match in an accident with a semi-truck. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), in crashes that involved a large truck and a passenger vehicle, 97% of the fatalities were occupants of the passenger vehicle.
A wrongful death case can leave surviving family members in a tough spot financially. No one should have to worry about money after their loved one’s untimely death.
An accident can result in serious and life-altering injuries.
Whiplash is a painful soft tissue injury of the neck. Collisions often cause whiplash because sudden deceleration forces the head forwards or backward.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating personal injuries. Individuals can experience vision problems, mood and personality changes, and issues with memory and executive functioning. A severe brain injury can leave someone needing around-the-clock care.
A broken arm, wrist, or leg bone can keep you out of work for a long time. Some broken bones will require surgery and extensive physical therapy.
An accident can cause internal injuries such as organ damage, a ruptured spleen, and hemorrhaging.
Very good, very professional attorney. When he says he will work for you, he does just that. Gives you weekly updates and is always willing to talk to you. Very impressed by this man.
Awesome service. Did a great job on my case. I have used him several times and would recommend him.
It’s possible that the insurance company will reach out to you right after your accident. They’ll offer you a settlement and maybe even ask you to sign some documents. While they seem sympathetic, they only have their best interests in mind—not yours.
An initial settlement offer is often just a fraction of what you could be entitled to. If you take this amount, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit in the future.
Even if you’re ready to stand up to the insurance company, this quickly becomes a David versus Goliath situation. The insurance company will say that you are responsible for your injuries, when in fact you may not be. Proving that another party was negligent is difficult, if not impossible, without the resources that a personal injury law firm has.
When you hire our personal injury attorneys, you won’t have to worry about your case. We take over the phone calls, letters, and negotiations. You can focus your energy on recovering from your injuries.
For many people, a personal injury case is the first time they’ve been involved in any type of lawsuit. It is helpful to understand the personal injury process.
At some law firms, personal injury cases represent only a fraction of all cases handled. But our practice is devoted to these types of cases. Let us put our expertise and experience to work for you.
As needed, we interview witnesses, obtain any video footage, and review your medical records. Our personal injury law firm may also consult with other professionals to recreate your accident scene and further investigate what happened.
The Demand for Settlement is the letter that we send to the insurance company. Our attorneys work hard to determine an appropriate settlement amount. Your future and current medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering are all taken into account.
If we can’t work out a fair settlement amount with the insurance company, we will file a personal injury lawsuit.
During the discovery phase, attorneys for both sides can request information from one another. This phase may also involve a deposition, which is an out-of-court question and answer session that takes place under oath.
Many personal injury cases are resolved during the mediation process. However, we won’t accept a settlement if it doesn’t adequately cover your damages. When needed, we will go to trial.
We prepare every case as if it’s going to trial. However, many personal injury cases are settled out of court. If your case does go to court, we’ll prepare you for the trial process so you can feel confident.
Time is of the essence. When your medical bills are piling up, mortgage payments are due or you can’t work, it’s important to contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney who can help you restore financial stability in your life.
