During hurricane Irma in 2017, a tree fell on our client’s home causing injuries. After an investigation, it was discovered that the tree was dead prior to the hurricane and several requests were made for it to be removed from a neighboring yard.
Our client was jogging when a vehicle struck them, running over their foot. The incident required surgery and left lasting damages.
On New Year’s Eve, our client was sitting in the passenger seat on an Atlanta interstate when an individual began shooting a firearm into the vehicle. They were taken to a nearby hospital after suffering injuries and made a full recovery.
Our attorneys successfully negotiated a settlement for a 2-year-old boy who suffered head injuries in an accident. The injuries were relatively minor, given his very young age, and after periodic monitoring for six months with a doctor he was fully discharged.
The aftermath of the accident was that our client went to the hospital with a broken leg that required surgical repair. He had no health insurance and big, outstanding medical bills. He was also credited with causing the accident and charged with reckless driving by the officer who arrived at the accident and conducted the investigation.
Shortly after we sent the video and screen capture along with a revised demand letter, we were able to force a settlement for enough money to satisfy the outstanding medical billings, the client’s lost wages and money for his pain and suffering. In this case a photo was worth not only a thousand words, but instead also worth many thousands and thousands of dollars.
In a case that was recently covered by one of the local newspapers, our lawyers were instrumental in tracking down a witness to an accident caused when a truck backed into our client’s lane of travel.
We were able to settle the case for $275k and you can read about it in the article published by the Fulton County Daily Report.
In a case involving an intrastate carrier, a truck that operates only within the State of Georgia, our attorneys were successful in reaching a recovery worth several hundred thousand dollars for a client who had suffered a head injury after she was struck by a custom-built electrical contractor company’s truck early one evening in traffic.
Once we were able to prove this chain of events, which was done without an expert, we were able to settle our client’s case for an appropriate value given the nature of her injuries for an amount that was more than fair given the nature of her injuries and the conduct of the driver in calling into question or client’s correct version of events.
Our attorneys, believe it or not, were have been successful in forcing an insurance policy insuring a golf cart to make a payment to one of our clients injured in an accident while riding his motorcycle.
This is one of our most favorite cases to tell people about because of the successful result we were able to obtain for our client and because it illustrates our legal creativity and willingness to explore it for the good of our clients.
Our attorneys settled a case that began when a gentleman on a motorcycle was forced to lay his bike down on the road when a bus made an illegal left-hand turn in front of our client, who had the right-of-way.
We were able to, quickly, show the insurance company the appropriate law in Georgia that would govern their conduct and, quickly, thereafter, were able to settle our client’s case.
We were contacted by an active duty Army sergeant who was injured when a truck cut off his motorcycle and he, too, sustained serious injuries to his leg. He was required to undergo a number of surgical procedures and, when he contacted us, the military was in the process of assessing whether he needed to be medically discharged seven months shy of 20 years in service and retirement.
When we met this sergeant we, again, reviewed his entire case and, again, were able to find an additional insurance policy, worth $100,000.00, that he was unaware of that had liability to make payment for his injuries and accident.
