Our Team Provides Representation for Atlanta Personal Injury Victims
If you regularly drive in Atlanta traffic (whether you are ITP or OTP), you know that the number of cars on the road exceeds the capacity of both surface streets and interstates. The infrastructure grew as the city exploded, but not at a fast enough rate. So many vehicles driving through the city daily increase the chances of a collision exponentially.
If you were hurt in a traffic accident, our attorneys can help.
The primary focus of our personal injury practice is representing victims injured in:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle versus car collisions
- Drunk driving crashes
- Rideshare accidents, including Uber and Lyft
- Wrongful death cases
We understand how accidents occur and know how to build a case. We can investigate your crash and prove the other driver violated traffic laws and caused the collision. Under Georgia law, we can hold that driver legally responsible for your injuries. We know how to navigate this process, present a solid case to support our clients’ claims, and take the necessary actions to help them seek compensation.
Since 1977, Buckhead Law Saxton Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., has helped crash victims hold the at-fault driver legally responsible. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to handle your insurance claim or lawsuit while you focus on rest and recovery.
We are a contingency fee law firm. We can go to work on your case without any upfront fees. We never ask for a retainer or charge anything before a settlement or verdict in your case. If we win and you obtain compensation, our attorneys take their fees out of a percentage of your total settlement package. You don’t owe us anything if we don’t secure your payment.
Recovering Damages After an Atlanta Personal Injury Accident
At Buckhead Law Saxton Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., our attorneys handle accident injuries covering a broad spectrum. Some clients have fractures, joint injuries, or soft tissue injuries. They recover completely in a few weeks or months, return to work, and put the whole thing behind them after their settlement.
Others suffer catastrophic, life-altering injuries. The second the accident occurred, their life changed entirely. They will require ongoing monitoring, treatment, care, and support for the rest of their lives. Some may return to work in a different capacity or relearn their job despite their new disabilities. Others may never work again.
After more than 40 years of handling injury cases, we know how to document injuries, care costs, and future medical needs and expenses. We can work with experts so insurers consider our clients’ future care costs.
We have experience handling many types of injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Significant injuries to limbs
- Burns and scarring
- Crush injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Severe lacerations
- Internal injuries
- Loss of limb injuries
When we pursue compensation for our injured clients, we consider their current expenses, losses, future costs, and non-economic damages. We document their damages and determine a fair settlement value for their claim. This serves as the target for our settlement negotiations with the insurer.
Types of recoverable damages in a personal injury case include:
The economic damages in a personal injury claim or lawsuit include any actual expenses or losses you experienced or will likely experience because of your injuries. Medical bills are often at the top of this list.
You can also pursue compensation for your lost income. This is recoverable if you once earned income and now can’t work because of your injuries. This is true regardless of whether you earn a salary, hourly wages, tips, commissions, gig work, or another source. If your injuries prevent you from returning to your career or force you to take on a lesser-paid job, diminished earning capacity may also be available.
Lastly, you can turn in receipts for related expenses, property damages, and other out-of-pocket costs. Parking at the hospital and other seemingly small expenses can add up quickly when you have to pay them regularly. Keep copies of all such documentation. Having a personal injury attorney could also benefit you as a lawyer could assist in the documentation.
Non-economic damages include the pain and suffering you endured and other intangible costs. While they do not have a direct monetary value, we can assign a value to them and pursue compensation for them in your case.
Punitive damages are rare in personal injury cases, but Georgia law allows a jury to award them when the liable party acted with willful misconduct, extreme recklessness, or malice. If we believe a case could support punitive damages, we may recommend filing a lawsuit and including this request in the complaint. The court will then likely recommend the case for trial.
When a personal injury victim dies from their injuries, Georgia law allows immediate family members and other loved ones to seek wrongful death damages. This includes medical care costs, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, loss of services, and more.
RECENT BUCKHEAD LAW CASE RESULTS
Who Is Liable for My Atlanta Personal Injury Damages?
Our personal injury attorneys at Buckhead Law Saxton Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., understand how negligence and liability work under Georgia law. We can help you pursue compensation by proving what happened, who was responsible, and the damages you endured.
Under Georgia law, victims can hold the negligent party responsible for their expenses and losses. To this end, documenting negligence is key to recovering damages. Without documenting negligence, you cannot win a personal injury case.
We investigate the injuries and gather evidence that could include:
- The police report
- Eyewitness statements
- Photographs or video
- Accident reconstruction
- A survey of the accident scene
- Your relevant medical records
- Documentation of damages
We use this evidence to create a clear picture of what happened and who was legally responsible. The four elements of negligence must be present.
- The accused party had an obligation to act in a certain way
- They breached this duty
- Their breach caused the accident
- You suffered injuries and other damages
For example, imagine a collision on I-285 near the Chamblee Dunwoody Road exit. A driver suddenly changed lanes without signaling and sideswiped you.
Showing that the driver was negligent would require documentation that:
- The driver was legally obligated to signal and check the adjacent lane before moving over
- They failed to do so properly
- This caused them to merge into your lane and sideswipe you
- You suffered injuries and financial damages
Usually, the negligent party is also the legally liable one. Some cases may involve other liable parties. For example, Georgia law recognizes a vicarious liability for employers. If the driver who caused the above accident was a commercial truck driver behind the wheel of their big rig, their employer might also be liable for your accident and injuries.
Our attorneys know how to determine fault, negligence, and liability in Atlanta personal injury accidents. We can build a case against the liable parties and seek compensation for you based on your injury or accident.
Recovering Compensation for Atlanta Personal Injuries
Because we have extensive experience handling personal injury cases in Atlanta, our personal injury attorney team at Buckhead Law Saxton Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., can often quickly determine the best way to approach these cases. During your initial case assessment, we can review your case, answer all your questions, and outline your possible options for pursuing compensation.
While we base these recommendations on the circumstances in your unique case, a few options include:
- Filing an insurance claim based on the at-fault party’s coverage and negotiating for a fair settlement
- Suing the at-fault party in court and negotiating for a settlement
- Suing in a Fulton County court and seeking an agreement through mediation
- Suing and taking the case to trial, where we ask the jury for a verdict in your favor
We often agree with the insurance company without needing to file a lawsuit. In others, we negotiate a settlement after filing a suit. These cases rarely go to trial, but we will not back down if it’s necessary in your case.
Even in cases when we sue the liable party or parties, we often begin with trying to settle the case through an insurance claim alone.
This process requires us to:
- Identify the insurance coverage available (usually a liability policy held by the liable party)
- Gather evidence and build strong support for the claim
- Send a demand letter to the insurer asking for fair compensation
- Respond to their counteroffer and begin negotiations
Insurers want to protect their bottom line by only paying out as much as necessary in a case. This can make it challenging to get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and cover other costs. We fight for a fair and just settlement and refuse to accept less than we believe your case is worth.
You shouldn’t have to pay for expenses caused by someone else’s negligence. Our team can fight for your justice, including fair compensation. If necessary, we can sue and take your case to trial.
Deadlines for Suing the At-Fault Party With Your Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney
Regarding how long you can wait to pursue compensation in your case, we recommend acting as soon as your injuries allow. At Buckhead Law Saxton Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., our lawyers can begin working on your case quickly after we agree to work together. We know that the sooner we begin our investigation, the sooner we can identify, gather, analyze, and compile crucial evidence.
We must meet state deadlines if we need to sue the at-fault party in a Fulton County court to recover compensation. Under Georgia law, we generally only have two years from the injury date to begin this process by filing the initial complaint. This is true in every county in Georgia, including those in the greater metro Atlanta area.
Some exceptions to the rule give you even less time to act. We can discuss the possible timeline for your case during your free case review.
