Personal Injury Legal Services

Have you been injured? If you have been, oftentimes, the insurance company is in the driver’s seat. But did you know that you have rights that, in many cases, only a lawyer can secure for you? You can contact us today and we will help you understand what those are and provide you with the course of action to take.

There is also the possibility that you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property. Property owners have a duty to keep their property safe. If you have been injured on someone else’s property, perhaps a store, hotel or some other commercial establishment, and their negligence caused the injury, you have rights under Georgia law including compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.

We also provide legal services for:
  • Civil Rights including Police Misconduct & Employment Discrimination
  • Product Liability (injuries caused by products)
  • Workers Compensation
  • Medical Malpractice

Legal Services For Wrongful Death

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 an 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 that your family's case will be zealously represented.

Get in touch with us today for assistance with your claim for the wrongful death or your loved one.
