Being injured can put your entire life on hold, resulting in substantial medical bills and sometimes a negative impact on your ability to work and earn. If you have been injured in an accident or incident caused by someone or something else, you could be entitled to compensation for the costs and damages associated with your injuries. The best way to ensure that you collect the full amount you are entitled to is by working with an attorney.

Areas of Practice – featuring Personal Injury and Car Accidents
Our primary focus is helping injured clients to collect the compensation they deserve to be “made whole”, a legal term that means covering all of the costs and damages associated with your accident. When you are injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of someone or something else, the negligent party and often their insurance company will be liable for the damages associated with your injuries.
Collecting the full amount of compensation that you deserve requires that you gather evidence to prove and accurately measure the damages associated with your injuries. We have been helping clients injured in Georgia collect the best possible settlement from insurance companies for decades for a broad variety of injuries, including:
Motor Vehicle Collisions
- Car accidents
- Large truck and bus wrecks – accidents involving large truck and buses are especially dangerous, and led to over 121,000 injuries in 2019 and over 5,000 fatal crashes
- Rideshare accidents – if you’ve been injured in an accident with an Uber/Lyft driver, or while a passenger, you could be entitled to damages
- Motorcycle accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Rollover accidents
- Pedestrian car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death
- Nursing home/elder abuse
- Negligent security
- Burn injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Sexual assault
If you have lost a loved one in an accident or incident caused by someone or something else, you could be entitled to compensation for the loss of their financial and emotional contribution to your household. These damages are collected through what is known as a wrongful death action. We understand that the loss of a loved one is a difficult time, and we will step into your shoes and handle the claims process on your behalf. You should not also have to experience financial hardship due to death costs like the funeral, as well as the loss of your loved one’s financial contribution to your household.
To convict you of a DUI, the state must prove each and every element of the crime. We have years of experience successfully challenging DUI cases, or negotiating the best possible outcome given the facts and circumstances of the case.

When Should I Contact a Personal Injury Attorney?
If you have been injured, it is important to immediately seek out emergency medical attention. The excitement and adrenaline associated with an accident can lead to you overlooking injuries, or mistaking a headache as a minor discomfort as opposed to a symptom of traumatic brain injury. The best way to ensure that you do not have unidentified injuries, or might not notice something until the excitement wears away in time, is to seek out emergency medical attention as soon as possible following the accident or incident that injured you.
Once you’ve received emergency medical care, it is time to reach out to a personal injury attorney. We will help you schedule follow-up appointments from medical and occupational experts in our network to accurately measure not only the present costs of your injuries, but also what they will cost in the future. It is also essential to determine whether your injuries might impact your ability to work and earn for yourself and your family, and to incorporate that into your settlement.
