Atlanta
Personal Injury Attorneys

The attorneys at Simon Bridgers Spires have litigated thousands of injury and wrongful death cases. Our firm is a close knit organization with a sterling reputation in the industry and the skillset to deliver results in every type of injury case from complex trucking crashes to wrongful death case, from premises liability cases to arcane insurance coverage issues. Our team is here to listen to your dilemma and make sure we are doing everything possible to achieve your goals.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE A GOOD PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN ATLANTA?

Personal injury lawyers are a dime a dozen in this state and the one you choose will be handling the largest financial transaction you will ever have, outside of a home purchase.  Being unfamiliar with the legal process and how to choose a good attorney can make the decision nigh impossible.

If you are looking for a lawyer, you are already stressed and worried about making a bad situation worse. You are dealing with a serious injury, or God forbid, a death in the family. How do you pick amongst a sea of lawyers posing in suits in front of the skyline of Atlanta?

  • Do you read reviews?
  • Are the reviews real?
  • What “awards” are phony?(Hint: Most Are)
  • Should I shop based on price? No for the same reason you don’t buy cheap used tires.

We are here to answer your questions and help you work through the process. We  have a thorough legal library available to you above so you can become an expert on your own case and ask the lawyers better questions.

Each type of injury case involves unique facts and the lawyer you choose has to be more than a general car wreck lawyer. Premises liability slip and fall cases differ drastically from tractor trailer cases. The laws that apply and the type of experts you may need are diverse. While we realize that no two accidents are the same, we apply the same level of skill and dedication to every case we take on.

Securing Your Legal Rights

The costs of dealing with a serious injury can be burdensome from a financial, emotional, and physical standpoint. Helping collision victims overcome such a distressing time in their lives and get back on track is vitally important to our firm.

Many types of damages such as increasing medical bills, lost income due to time away from work, and pain and suffering can be very overwhelming. Our personal injury lawyers understand these frustrations and know how to reduce your stress and bring you back to the life you had before.

Our Atlanta Personal Injury lawyers are at your side to help support and provide you with the legal counsel necessary to help you regain your full recovery and loss.

We promise that on Day 1, you will have real legal answers as to whether you have a workable case and if not, why not. No BS.

"Excellent client service and will treat you with respect"

Mr. Simon has excellent client service and will treat you with respect. Prior to working with him, I had a very bad experience with my former attorney, so was thrilled when I found Chris! He and his staff are always available to help and answer questions you have about the process. I would highly recommend his services, you will not be disappointed!

Chris Simon has been a great injury attorney for Atlanta clients of mine with personal injury claims in addition to their workers’ comp claims. I recommend him for auto accidents, wrongful death, and other injury or accident claims in Georgia.

Comparative Negligence Laws In Atlanta, GA

Another law of which to be aware when filing a personal injury claim in Atlanta is Georgia’s comparative negligence law. In Georgia, a claimant cannot recover compensation when they are found to be more than 49 percent at fault for an accident. In the event that a claimant is found to be less than 49 percent at fault for a personal injury, they are allowed to recover compensation. However, the defendant named in their suit will only be liable for the defendant’s percentage of damages. For example, in a personal injury slip and fall case in which the owner of a property is found to be 60 percent at fault, the property owner is only liable for 60 percent of the claimant’s damages.

Types Of Compensation Recoverable In A Personal Injury Suit

When you are injured and need financial compensation to help you move forward in life, our attorneys at Christopher Simon Attorney at Law will advocate for your full recovery amount. You have the right to seek compensation for all losses, including:

  • Economic damages, which are the damages for your actual financial losses, such as property damage, lost wages, and medical expenses; and
  • Noneconomic damages, which are damages for immeasurable, intangible losses, such as the value of your pain and suffering, disability, loss of quality of life, etc.

In some cases, punitive damages may also be allowed. Punitive damages are damages that are awarded solely to punish the defendant in the case for willful misconduct, malice, or fraud. Punitive damages in Georgia are capped at $250,000, per Section 51-12-5.1of Georgia Code.

Is It Really Necessary I Have A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Sorting through the sad cast of characters can be as frustrating as reading a foreign menu because it is just not a world most people ever have to deal with. Do you choose between them based on a nice suit, a good photoshop job, a picture of an impressive building or skyline? Do you read reviews, are they real, what “awards” are phony? Personal injury lawyers are a dime a dozen in this city and having one all depends on the circumstances of your case.

So When Do I Need To Call A Personal Injury Attorney?

You can choose to represent yourself in a personal injury case. However, the victim involved usually lacks the proper training and experience needed to negotiate with the insurance carriers and resolve important issues that arise in any personal injury case. We have over 20 years of legal experience and know what it takes to be on the side of our clients when things are not fair and the unjust need defending against insurance companies or negligent individuals. Chris Simon Law Firm will be able to educate you on your rights, give you a reasonable timeline and strategy for your case, and keep you informed as important developments arise.

Will I Be Speaking With An Attorney Or Someone Else When I Call?

We don’t believe in not talking to our clients directly so when you call, you will speak specifically to one of the firm’s three Atlanta personal injury lawyers. Having multiple offices, we have the capability of helping many in the state of Georgia. With strong traditional ethical and Christian values, we are very clear when giving you your options before you have to make a decision. Because we care a great deal about our clients you must understand that we are selective about the cases we accept to make sure we are a good fit for each other. We pride ourselves in caring for our clients and are not like most Atlanta personal injury attorneys who will just take any case that comes in the door.

A Few Things To Consider When Deciding To Hire A Personal Injury Attorney

  • Not sure who is at fault: If you were involved in an accident and it is not clear who’s fault it is, you should consider talking to an attorney. The insurance companies will try hard to blame you for damages in situations like this. An attorney can defend you from counterclaims and cross-claims and help protect your rights.
  • Experienced a serious injury or permanent disability: You cannot take your chances when a lifetime of suffering, pain and bills are at stake. Preventing lifelong financial stress is the job of a personal injury attorney
  • Being denied or have a claim delayed by the insurance company: The complicated laws and procedures involved in a personal injury claim are something insurance companies know individuals lack knowledge in. A Lawyer can assist you in this area.
