Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer

The personal injury lawyers at Simon Bridgers Spires have litigated thousands of personal injury cases. Our firm is a close-knit organization with a stellar reputation in the industry and the skill set to deliver results in every type of injury case from car accidents to wrongful death cases, from complex trucking 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. Have other attorneys turned you down and said there is no case? If the damages are serious, we go the extra mile in detective work and if there is hidden evidence, we will find it. For example, two prior attorneys turned down our 2023 case with a $32.5 million dollar verdict! We see what others don’t.

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

With the array of lawyers available, it can be challenging to select the most suitable one.

Why You Should Choose Us For Your Personal Injury Case

We have a wide range of knowledge in dealing with clients who have suffered various kinds of injuries due to the negligence of someone else. We understand that no two accidents are alike, yet we put the same amount of expertise and effort into handling each case. Our practice areas of personal injury include:

Car Accidents: In Georgia, fault laws and the tort liability system simplify the process, but securing the compensation you deserve after a car accident can be challenging. Our Atlanta car accident attorney assists you in negotiating with insurance adjusters and proving fault to move your case forward.

Dog Bite Claims: Atlanta enforces strict liability for dog bites, holding dog owners responsible for their pets’ actions. With our help, you can establish liability and secure full compensation for your injuries.

Wrongful Death: Losing a loved one is devastating, especially when the death was preventable. Georgia law allows the representatives of a deceased individual to bring a wrongful death action. We are here to help you navigate this difficult process and seek justice on behalf of your loved one.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents: Collisions between pedestrians or cyclists and motor vehicles often result in serious or fatal injuries. We assist victims in obtaining the compensation they need for medical expenses, financial losses, and other considerations.

If you are injured in an accident not mentioned above and believe someone else is at fault, contact our Atlanta personal injury lawyer for a free consultation. We can help determine whether to pursue your claim and strive to obtain the maximum compensation you deserve.

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers

We listen to your concerns and make sure you know all of the options before you make a decision on your case.

Comparative Negligence Laws In Atlanta, GA

An important law to consider when filing a personal injury claim in Atlanta is comparative negligence. In Georgia, you cannot claim damages if you are found to be more than 49 percent responsible for the accident. If you are less than 51 percent at fault, you can still receive compensation for your personal injury. However, the defendant will only be liable for damages proportional to their percentage of fault. For example, in a slip and fall case, if the injured person was determined to be 40 percent at fault, they could still recover damages, but the defendant would only be responsible for 60 percent of the total damages.

Types Of Compensation Recoverable In A Personal Injury Case

In cases where compensation for injuries helps to let people carry on with their lives, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Simon Bridgers Spires will fight hard to collect the maximum amount possible. You have the right to seek compensation for all losses, including:

  • Economic damages: Damages for your actual financial losses such as property damage, lost wages and medical expenses
  • Noneconomic damages: losses that you can't put a price tag on--pain and suffering, disability, loss of your quality of life, etc.

Punitive damages may also be awarded in appropriate cases. Punitive damages are those that aim to punish the defendant in a case for willful misconduct, malice or fraud. In Georgia, punitive damages have been limited to $250,000 under Section 51-8 of the Code.

Is It Really Necessary That I Have A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Having an experienced personal injury lawyer is so important. They not only understand the legal nuances of your case but also work to maximize the compensation you are entitled to. Their assistance is particularly important in cases of negligence, accidents, or disputes where legal representation significantly increases the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Ultimately, a personal injury lawyer is essential in securing the best possible result and helping you start a journey toward recovery and comfort.

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

  • Not sure who is at fault? If you are in an accident that might be caused by someone else, then it is worth discussing the matter with a personal injury attorney. In cases like this, the insurance companies will do their best to shift responsibility onto you. Your attorney can file counterclaims and cross-claims to protect you.
  • Experienced a serious injury or permanent disability? You can't gamble with a lifetime of suffering, pain and bills. One job of a personal injury attorney is to prevent lifelong financial stress.
  • Being denied or have a claim delayed by the insurance company? The insurance companies are well aware that people have no understanding of the complex laws and procedures related to a personal injury claim. Our Atlanta personal injury lawyer can help you in this regard.

When Do I Need To Call A Personal Injury Attorney?

In situations involving personal injury, you can choose to represent yourself, but it’s often not advisable unless you have legal training and experience. Handling negotiations with insurance companies and navigating legal complexities can be daunting without professional guidance. With over two decades of legal experience, we recognize the importance of advocating for individuals against insurance giants and negligent parties when fairness is at stake. At Simon Bridgers Spires, we prioritize explaining your rights, establishing a realistic timeline for your case, and keeping you informed about significant developments. Our team understands that personal injury cases can be emotionally and financially draining, which is why we provide compassionate support and strategic legal guidance every step of the way.

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

We prioritize direct communication with our clients, so when you reach out to us, you'll speak directly with one of our three experienced personal injury attorneys based in Atlanta. Our multiple office locations allow us to serve clients across Georgia effectively. Upholding strong traditional, ethical, and Christian values, we provide clear insights into your legal options before expecting you to make any decisions. Our commitment to client care means we carefully select cases to ensure a good fit between us and our clients. Unlike some firms that take on any case, we take pride in our personalized approach and dedication to serving our clients' best interests. Additionally, our team conducts thorough assessments of each case to determine the best course of action, whether it involves negotiating settlements or pursuing litigation. We believe in transparent communication, keeping you updated on the progress of your case and addressing any concerns you may have promptly.
