We Don’t Get Paid Unless We Win

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.

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.
