“Professional, caring and easy! Mr. Ponton represented me when I was involved in a car wreck with a drunk driver. He explained how the process works, kept me informed while the case was pending, and ultimately got me way more than I expected. I would definitely use him again.”

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.

When is a Business Liable for Negligent Security in Atlanta?

There are countless businesses across Atlanta, and many of these establishments welcome members of the public onto their premises. Shoppers and patrons deserve to feel safe at all times, but sometimes businesses fail to provide an adequate level of security. In some cases, members of the public can be seriously harmed due to violent, criminal acts that occur on business premises. These individuals can then file a negligent security lawsuit against businesses. If you have been injured or harmed in any way due to negligent security, it’s important to know when a business is actually liable for your damages. The best way to figure this out is to get in touch with a qualified, experienced negligent security attorney in Atlanta. Our legal professionals can review your situation carefully before determining whether the business in question was actually negligent. If you have a strong case, your attorney can then guide you…

Grocery Store Liability in Atlanta After Slipping on a Spill

When you take a trip to the grocery store, you generally expect to come home with bags of meat, tasty vegetables, snacks, and beverages to enjoy for the next few weeks. One thing no one expects to come home with is a serious, potentially life-altering injury. Unfortunately, even a small spill can cause a shopper to slip and fall. This can result in a range of injuries, including hip fractures, brain injuries, spinal injuries, wrist sprains, broken fingers, and much more. In some cases, the complications of these injuries can even lead to death. In the face of missed wages and medical expenses, injured victims may be desperately in need of financial compensation.  So how do you hold a grocery store liable for this kind of negligence? The first step is always to get in touch with a qualified, experienced Atlanta premises liability attorney. These legal professionals can help you…

Get The Help You Need

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.
