"After my car accident I finally called James Ponton and I've NEVER had a problem since.

He handled my case very professionally, always was more than happy to answer any question and would call back no later than 48 hours, and that was the longest it ever took. My case was settled about two years ago, but James still calls to check how everything is going."

Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney

At Ponton Law, we specialize in the litigation and trial of catastrophic personal injury cases.  We bring all of our resources to bear on each case we handle because we believe that you deserve the best representation possible.  We handle only a limited number of cases at any given time.  Our team includes paralegals, private investigators, nurse consultants, liability expert witnesses and medical experts designed to maximize the recovery in every case we handle.     

Our track record speaks for itself.  Over the past five years, we have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients who have trusted us with their cases.  Because of this success, James has been recognized as one of the top young lawyers in Georgia and named a Georgia Rising Star by Atlanta Magazine and the Super Lawyers Magazine in 2010, 2014-2016.  No more than 2.5% of the total lawyers in Georgia are selected as a Rising Star.       

We prepare every case from start to finish for trial and appellate review.  In addition to serving as lead counsel in numerous trials, James has successfully litigated numerous times in the Georgia Court of Appeals, Georgia Supreme Court, and the 11th Circuit.            

We Don't Get Paid Unless We Win

Some attorneys charge by the hour, and you pay whether you win or lose.  Some attorneys ask their clients to advance the case expenses, which can run into the tens of thousands of dollars.  We don’t.  We provide a free initial case evaluation, and all cases are handled on a contingency fee basis.  This means that our firm does not recover a penny unless we win.  It also means our interests our aligned-the more we recover for you, the bigger our fee is.  We do not require any payment from you unless we obtain a verdict or settlement.

Our agreement with you also includes representation with your health insurance provider, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other entity that has paid for accident related medical bills.  We also assist you in finding a medical provider in the event that you do not have any medical insurance.

Medicare and Medicaid have statutory rights of recovery in the event that they pay for medical bills and you obtain a settlement.  It’s important that Medicare or Medicaid is contacted immediately in order to set up the reimbursement claim, which can otherwise delay the progress of the case and ultimately any potential settlement.  If Medicare has paid for any of your bills, then steps can be taken to minimize the amount that is ultimately reimbursed. For example, after we receive a “Conditional Payment” letter from Medicare, we line item every charge to determine whether it is trauma related.  


Since 2010, there has been a big push from health insurance carriers to recover for the medical treatment that is related to an accident in the event you obtain a settlement.  Based upon the medical CPT codes which you see on your itemized statement at discharge, the insurance carrier will almost certainly generate a questionnaire and send it to you directly to see if they might be able to recover from the settlement.  If your health insurance carrier has paid for any of your bills, then we work to reduce or eliminate any reimbursement, depending upon the language of your plan.  We don’t charge any extra for this service.


It’s important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.  The sooner we are involved, the better we can prepare your case.  As time passes, evidence is lost and witnesses forget what happened.  Emails and videos are purged.  For example, large big box retailers routinely destroy surveillance videos after thirty days, which might have caught your fall at the grocery store on camera.  Georgia law provides for sanctions in the event that a company destroys video evidence, but only after it receives “notice of litigation.”  Call the Atlanta Personal Injury attorney today at 404-418-8507, or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
