Auto Accidents

When your life has been turned upside down, or your loved ones injured because another driver was negligent, not paying attention, or deliberately doing something wrong and the big insurance companies become your enemy instead of a good neighbor, you need the help of an experienced law firm to transition you through the process and obtain fair and just compensation for you. We can help you fight the big insurance companies and maximize your settlement or verdict.

Trucking Accidents

We all know what it is like to drive on a major highway with big trucks. We see them weaving from lane to lane from lack of sleep, tailgating or speeding to make a deadline. When a big truck causes a collision, people can be hurt and many times die due to the size difference between the two vehicles. If you have been injured or have a loved one who was injured or killed in a collision with a big truck, you need to call a lawyer immediately. There is evidence that can be destroyed, and many times purposefully destroyed, that is essential to your case such as log sheets, black box records, GPS records, phone records, driver files and many other important pieces of evidence.

Please don’t wait. Seek legal assistance now to maximize the value of your claim and protect the evidence needed to prosecute your claim.

Personal Injury

Are you injured and feeling powerless? Did you know that there are rights for injury victims that only a lawyer can help secure? Don't be in the dark - contact us today to understand your entitlements and determine the next steps. Let us hold the insurance company accountable so you can get back on track quickly.

If you have unfortunately experienced an injury on someone else's property, such as a store or hotel, the owner of that space is responsible for providing a safe environment. According to Georgia law, they are liable to provide compensation, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Sexton Law Firm can help you understand what you are entitled to and how to get it.

Wrongful Death

Sadly, many times the negligence of others causes the death of a loved one either in a car accident, on the job injury, medical malpractice, or through intentional harmful conduct. When that happens, you need a firm that is experienced in not just handling the litigation to right the wrong that has been committed to the full extent that the law allows, but a firm that is skilled in paving the way to bring such action including opening estates, knowledgeable about who can bring the action, the damages recoverable and the best way to recover them.

Our firm has years of experience in handling these types of claims. You can rest assured, your family's case will be zealously represented. Call us now for assistance with your claim for the wrongful death or your loved one.

Workers Compensation

When you are injured on the job, it doesn't matter how long you have worked for your employer and how much your employer likes you. The insurance company is in the driver’s seat and many times will dictate how your employer reacts with you.

Employers and the insurance company may try to force you to go to a particular doctor and get particular treatments and may deny you the pay that you deserve. You have rights that many times only a lawyer can secure for you.

Get in touch with us now to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.

Criminal Defense

We all make mistakes and things aren't always as they appear. Don't let your pending criminal matter limit your future success. Let our firm help you with your criminal charges. Jacob Weldon has years of experience handling criminal matters including everything from DUI to complex felony cases.
