Personal injury lawyers help with many kinds of accidental injury cases and help you get the compensation you need from the responsible parties. Trying to handle an injury case by simply filing an insurance claim can quickly reach a dead end when those insurance companies refuse to acknowledge your injuries or fail to pay the full value you are owed.
To maximize your compensation, work with an experienced injury lawyer. Our attorneys can help you track your damages, gather evidence to prove your claim, and negotiate with the insurance companies and at-fault parties. We can also calculate damages for you so that you know what your case should be worth and whether the settlement offers you receive are fair or not.

Areas of Personal Injury Law Our Milton, GA Attorneys Practice
“Personal injury” cases refer to any case – accidental or otherwise – that results in bodily injury. That can be something as simple as a few cuts, scrapes, or bruises or something as serious as traumatic brain injury or paralysis. No matter what kind of injury you suffered and no matter the cause, our personal injury lawyers can help you with your case, including in any of the following areas of personal injury law:
Whether you were injured in a crash while in a car, truck, or SUV or you were hit while riding a bike, motorcycle, scooter, or other vehicle, our lawyers can help you seek compensation from the responsible parties. In most cases, that will be another driver of a car, truck, or SUV, but our lawyers can also help you hold trucking companies, taxi companies, delivery drivers, and Uber/Lyft drivers liable for the injuries they caused you in a crash.
Proving your case can often be complex, and insurance companies are quick to deny cases when there is an argument that you might be partially at fault. Our lawyers can help argue against partial fault and seek to get 100% of your damages paid.
Slip and Falls and Other Premises Liability Accidents
When you fall down because you tripped or slipped on a danger on someone else’s property, you can often hold them responsible for your injuries. Property owners are also liable to injury victims for other dangers on their property, such as collapsing balconies, broken handrails, unlit stairs, and fire hazards.
These accidents – even simple fall-down accidents – can often result in lasting injuries that can leave you with sometimes permanent effects. Pain and suffering from these injuries are often severe, and these injuries can interfere with your ability to work, raising the economic damages as well.
Injuries from improper medical care and negligence in the operating room can leave patients with additional injuries that need more surgeries, more treatment, and more time to heal than the initial procedure would have. Patients can also be misdiagnosed or have their illness go undiagnosed entirely, which can leave them to get worse and potentially miss out on recovery.
This is also a common cause of death, leaving families bereaved. Talk to our attorneys any time you suspect you or a loved one was the victim of medical malpractice, improper care, or negligent care.
Work Injuries and Construction Accidents
Accidents in the workplace can leave workers with injuries that make it hard to return to work, either for a limited time or on a permanent basis. At the same time, they will also face injuries that need medical care, and they will continue to face bills for rent and mortgages and daily expenses like groceries and gas. Getting all of these damages compensated is important.
Some work injury cases must be filed through your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance instead of a lawsuit against your employer, but many workplace accident victims can sue other parties and get damages beyond what insurance would pay them.
People can pass away from all kinds of accidents. Most of the accidents and injuries listed above are the kinds that can, in the worst cases, become fatal. Our injury attorneys are prepared to help with injury cases, but we can also help your family pursue damages in the event of a loved one’s death.
It is especially important to work with an attorney in a wrongful death case for two major reasons. First, these cases are often high-dollar cases, and you can usually rely on insurance companies and defendants – especially businesses – to put up a strong legal fight to avoid paying you. Second, because these damages can be worth so much to your family, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to avoid low payouts or losses in court.
Process of Filing an Injury Case in Milton, GA
Cases start by filing them with the court. This initial filing lays out the facts of the case and details how you were injured and what the defendant did wrong to cause the accident. You also have to list the damages you are claiming and provide some kind of proof of their cost. From there, both sides will take depositions and exchange evidence. Throughout the case, you will negotiate with the defense and try to reach a settlement, which can shorten your case and lower the court fees and legal costs. If your case cannot be settled fairly, we can take the case all the way to trial and fight to get you compensation from a judge and jury.
