How Do You Find A Lawyer To Trust?

Are you tired of reading through webpages spouting empty statements about lawyer competency and skills? Have you called TV firms and spoken with numerous assistants but no one really gives you answers? We operate differently. If you call you speak to one of our three accident lawyers today. We will give you real advice and value estimates that you can bank on.

There are several things you want to know about the process going in:

  1. Every single lawyer handling accidents works on a commission basis only. Folks on TV trumpeting “No Attorneys Fees unless we win!” are just restating that. Great. Every single injury lawyer does that.
  2. This leads a smart client to the next question which is; “Well, should I price shop and see if I can get the commission percentage down?” That would seem to make sense and it doesn’t hurt to ask but that’s not the way that you should interview lawyers. There are enormous differences between law firms.
  3. The real question should be; “I would like to do an in person or video interview with you to discuss the case, when can we schedule that?”

Why is this? Because if a lawyer does not have the time to meet with you about the case in the beginning, they certainly won’t take the time to work the case up correctly later on in the process.

How Do You Know What Your Car Accident Case Is Worth?

The most useful thing we can tell you is this. All settlement values derive ultimately from what a hypothetical jury would do with the case down the road. Insurance companies are profit businesses who want to settle claims if they are getting good value relative to what would happen at trial. What we as the client or plaintiff wants can be important but our expectations need to be based on real world probabilities.

There are exceptions to every rule but the key issues are;

  1. How bad is the damage to the vehicles
  2. What county does the defendant live in as some juries are more generous depending on the County they are in.
  3. Does the client have prior medical care for the body parts that were injured.
  4. Did the medical care start soon after the crash and has it been consistent.
  5. The nature of the medical care, no chiropractic care is not taken very seriously by most juries or insurers because the doctors pad the bills.
  6. The likeability of the client or Plaintiff. Nice people are taken care of by juries. Whiny people are not.
  7. Are there facts that increase value like, a commercial vehicle, DUI, Speeding, Cell phone use or an unsafe driving history.

If you have the answers to these questions, we guarantee we can give you a reliable estimate on the value of your case. Don’t forget to order a copy of our book so we can do a deep dive together and educate you on your claim.

Our initial free consult is just one way our company demonstrates its commitment towards solving customers’ problems related to getting their house or car repaired after an accident at less cost than what they were expecting before talking with us today.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Car Accident Lawyer?

All car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee. For cases resolved without having to file a lawsuit that is typically 33% of the gross amount recovered for the client. For cases in suit it is 39% of the gross. If there is more than one client involved in the same wreck, there is a bulk discount pre-suit at a 28% rate.

The firm advances costs of litigation until such time as the case is tried to a jury or resolved through settlement. If the client loses the case, there is no charge and no bill. We take the risk right along with you.

Do I Need An Atlanta Auto Accident Lawyer?

Not always. Our general advice for personal injury cases involving less than a month of medical care or bills totaling $4,000 or under is to handle it yourself because you will have better net outcomes that way—you won’t have to pay attorney fees. However, if your case involves DUI’s, Commercial vehicles, and contests over liability then we suggest consulting an attorney right away so they can help work out how much compensation (if any) should be awarded in this situation.

What Could I Be Compensated For?

Personal injury law in Georgia allows you to pursue a variety of damages. Your compensation would include amounts for economic and non-economic losses, which means the money is yours regardless.

  • Medical bills
  • Income losses
  • Lost capacity to earn in the future
  • Lost quality of life
  • Long-term disabilities
  • Pain and suffering

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For An Accident?

The most important thing to know about the statute of limitations in Georgia is that it’s two years from the date of the injury whether that is from a collision, a dog bite or any other type of negligence.

There are some exceptions;

Tolling Of Statute Due To Traffic Ticket

If the Defendant received a traffic ticket for the crash, then you get the the two years from the date of the crash plus the number of days it took for the Defendant to resolve the ticket. In the case of DUI crashes where the ticket can go on for years, that means the statute or deadline is extended for that period of time!

Who Will I Actually Talk To When I Call?

When you call the number above, you will speak directly with one of the three car accident attorneys from our firm. We have multiple offices and accept cases all over the state of Georgia – but we only choose those that are a good match for both parties involved in an auto collision case.

Most other attorneys would take any client who walks through their door; however this leads to some sloppy work on behalf of inexperienced or poorly trained legal professionals with little knowledge about what they should do when faced by challenging situations.

what our clients say
Chris Simon and his team handled my accident case, and were fantastic to work with. Chris personally came out to meet me and spent a half hour discussing my case before I even signed with his firm. Chris and his assistants, Alicia and Laynie, were professional, courteous and efficient, and responded quickly (and patiently) to my every question and concern. My case was resolved fairly and with minimal stress on my end, the importance of which cannot be overstated, especially when dealing with the pain and frustration of a car accident. I highly recommend the Simon law firm.
Michelle C. GOOGLE REVIEW
I originally contacted the Simon Law firm based on the great reviews I read when searching for a lawyer to handle my case after a car accident. Let me just say that I am happy I found this firm and can attest to the fact that my experience with both Tyler and Laynie have been nothing short than amazing.
