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.

Can Tesla be held liable for a car accident caused by the Autopilot?

In almost every town, accidents occur regularly and unexpectedly. No one causes an accident willingly. Accidents differ depending on the vehicles involved and their effects. When an accident occurs, it can change your life completely. One time you could be traveling along the road heading to the city or your home, and within seconds, a truck hits your vehicle and leads to a fatal accident. The recovery process from such an accident could be very complicated and costly. When such befalls you, an Atlanta car accident attorney should be your first resort. Below, we outline different types of truck accidents and their causes, which is the article’s central focus. Some of these accidents include: Underride accidents Rollover truck accidents Jackknife accidents Underride Truck Accidents This accident involves a smaller vehicle and a tractor-trailer whereby the smaller vehicle gets trapped under the tractor-trailer trailer.

What Do You Do When the Insurance Company Takes Too Long?

When you suffer a personal injury in an auto accident, you understandably expect your insurance company will pay your claim promptly. Of course, that is often not how the system actually works. Insurance companies are not exactly in business to make your life better. They are in business to make money for their shareholders.

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.

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.
