Anytime someone you know or love has been injured it is important to first be there for them. Secondly, do your due diligence when looking for an attorney. We want to inform the family on the process of these cases and allow them to have an open line of communication on a daily basis. No dropped calls or telemarketers. We fight for the community and enjoy helping you.
Personal Injury happens at a moments notice and typically blindsides an individual or family. Whether it be a Car Wreck, Slip and Fall or Workers Compensation you need someone close by, to be there throughout the process. We pride ourselves in being local and available for our clients whenever they need us. We know the streets of Columbus Ga, the businesses, and the inner workings of the corporate community.
It is important to remember that your attorney works for you. From the moment you retain our office to represent you, we are actively working to reach the best result for you, our client.
Car wrecks are one of the most common events that can cause serious injuries. Almost everyone drives or rides in a car on a regular basis. We never know when another driver may be careless and cause an accident. We have handled hundreds of cases for clients injured in car accidents. Our cases have ranged from soft tissue cases to serious, disabling injuries and death. Every case is different, and deserves specific, individual attention.
Slip and fall
Sometimes people get injured with no warning, while simply walking around. You may slip in water, or trip on an obstacle or step in a hole. The owner of the premises where you are injured may be liable for your injuries. These are often called "slip and fall" cases. However, these cases are very legitimate and often are associated with serious injuries.
There is special protection in the law for workers who are injured while acting in the business of their employer. This is called workers compensation benefits. Your employers insurance will have to cover your medical bills and pay for your temporary total disability. However, if you have a permanent disability you may be entitled to a settlement. That is where your lawyer can help protect your rights. Let us evaluate your work injury and make sure your rights are protected.
Today, people are inundated with legal advertising from lawyers who want to handle your case. The lawyer who represents you is totally up to you. No lawyer is "your lawyer" until you say so! We hope you will give us the chance to earn that special privilege.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our ultimate goal is to see that you receive full justice in any verdict or settlement.
Q. CAN I RECOVER EVEN IF I HAD A PRIOR INJURY?
