Georgia Accident Attorney


What is a personal injury?

When you or a loved one has suffered due to the recklessness or carelessness of an individual or company, you qualify for a personal injury claim. It does not matter if the harm done was psychological rather than physical. If you have been harmed in any way, you can contact an Atlanta accident attorney to discuss filing a suit against the person who caused you and your family to suffer.

What kinds of cases do you take?

We handle all types of personal injury cases, including car accidents, slip and falls, negligent security, construction site injuries and wrongful death. If you don’t see the type of accident you have suffered from on our practice page, please call our offices and an Atlanta accident lawyer will be happy to tell you if we could accept your case.

How do contingency fees work?

When you pay with a contingency fee, you agree to pay your lawyer a certain percentage of your winnings from the case. If you lose your case, you will not have to pay anything.

Can I work directly with the insurance company after an accident?

You could, but the chances are that your settlement will be significantly less than you may deserve for your injuries, property damages and suffering. An Atlanta accident lawyer can help you maximize your compensation.

What are statutes of limitations?

These are legal deadlines regarding how long you have to file a lawsuit after you learn that you have been wronged. If you did not immediately learn about the wrongful behavior, the time period does not start until you have recognized it.

Someone told me I took an assumption of risk and can’t sue, is that right?

No. An assumption of risk means that you were aware something was dangerous but you chose to do it anyway. The thing is, you can still generally sue someone if you took an assumption of risk, but your chances of winning are much lower depending on the situation.

In many cases, business owners will try to ward people from filing a lawsuit by claiming they took an assumption of risk. But often, the assumption of risk applied to doing the activity in the safest possible situation. If, for example, a ski resort failed to mark off a completely defunct trail, the assumption of risk would not apply.

If you have any questions, please contact an Atlanta accident attorney.
