We Handle all Personal Injury Cases in Georgia

Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers will sit with you to discuss your case. We will listen to your side of the story, get a full understanding of the extent of your injuries, and take a full account of your overall situation. We’ll work on a sound strategy to get payment for your property damage, medical expenses, hospital bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Remaining at the scene of an accident is crucial. If you are involved in an accident, do not leave the scene before speaking with emergency responders - police or ambulance paramedics. If you are the one to call emergency services, tell the operator your name, location, how many people appear to be injured, and how many vehicles are involved. Our firm handles a wide variety of cases including:

Auto Accidents

We represent clients in auto accidents, helping them to get compensation for injuries from the responsible party. We will look for potential issues in your case, such as possible manufacturing defects that contributed to the accident or worsened injuries and whether poor road conditions played a role. Even if your actions did contribute to the accident, you may still be compensated for a percentage of the injuries caused by someone else. If a third party shares responsibility in the accident, they may also have to contribute to your compensation.

Boating Accident

A boating accident can cause major, expensive bodily injuries that can limit your ability to live and work as you see fit. Boating accidents can be caused by equipment failure, defective products, and operator error. This means that providing liability in your case can be difficult if you don't have legal experience. We can help you ensure that those responsible will pay for damages.

Truck Accident

Companies that hire truck drivers expect them to obey the rules of the road and drive safely. However, truck drivers are also expected to deliver their cargo on time, regardless of delays. This can cause a truck driver to drive recklessly, resulting in truck crashes. If you are injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer, semi-truck or company vehicle, the company employing the driver may attempt to avoid liability. We will make every effort to recover damages from the company.

Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries are usually classified as injuries that result in disabilities, lifelong complications or a shortened life expectancy. They place individuals and entire families under massive amounts of stress, emotional pain, and financial hardship. If you do not get adequate compensation early on, medical bills will often snowball into a debt you can't recover from.

Spinal Cord Injury

An injury to the spinal cord can cause lasting emotional and physical pain, along with the need for expensive long-term care. It is often a struggle to regain basic function after a spinal cord injury. You will need an experienced lawyer committed to getting you proper compensation for your suffering.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when an external force causes damage to the brain. TBIs can cause various long-term medical problems. This can include dizziness, memory loss, and constant headaches. A TBI can cause you or a loved one to miss a significant amount of time from work. The costs of the resulting medical bills, rehabilitation, and physical or mental therapy can be immense. We can get you compensated for your suffering.

Motorcycle Accident

If you or a loved one are injured while riding your motorcycle, your first call should be to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. We will get to work right away on your case and provide a sound strategy to take care of your bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Juries have a prejudice against motorcycle riders - that's why you need a lawyer on your side. Click here to download my legal guide to motorcycle injury compensation.

Uninsured Drivers

Most of the time, when you’re in an accident and the other driver is at fault, then his or her insurance will pay for the medical bills and damages. However, over 1.16 million people in Georgia do not carry liability insurance. This means you have a one in ten chance of getting into an accident with a motorist without liability insurance. In other instances, the driver might be insured but only carry the minimum $25,000 coverage. If you are in a severe accident, it is very likely that you will need far more coverage than that. The only way for you to be able to recover the rest of your medical bills is to either go through your insurance if you have underinsured or uninsured insurance coverage or to sue the other driver.

Personal Injury Protection Insurance

Personal Injury Protection, aka PIP will entitle you to cover more than just your medical expenses. It is an extension of your car insurance that allows you to recover lost wages and transportation to medical appointments. If you have Personal Injury Protection coverage, we can assist you in recovering the amount your policy allows.

Med Pay Coverage

Medical Payment Coverage or MedPay Coverage can protect you regardless of who caused the accident. MedPay can pay for medical expenses for you and passengers in your car at the time of the accident. MedPay is not a substitute for your car or health insurance. Instead, it is added to your car or health insurance if you are involved in an accident. Our firm is experienced in helping our clients get compensation through this coverage.

Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one can cause pain and suffering for an entire family. You can imagine how much worse the experience would be if you knew it was caused by someone else’s negligence or intentional harm. Nothing can fully compensate the loss of a family member, but we can lessen the hardship. If you are seeking a claim against the party responsible for wrongful death, don’t try to go through it alone. You need assistance from an experienced wrongful death attorney who can guide you through the process and ensure your case reaches a satisfactory conclusion.

Hit and Run Accident

You may believe that if you are involved in an accident when the driver who collided with you leaves the scene, you have no means of recovering damages from the responsible person. However, there are steps you can take with law enforcement to locate the other driver. If law enforcement locates the hit and run driver, we may be able to help you get compensation that your insurance does not cover using the evidence you’ve collected. This can include lost wages, payment of medical bills and other damages related to the accident or your injuries.
