How do you choose a good Personal Injury Attorney in Atlanta?

Personal injury lawyers are a dime a dozen in this city and the one you choose will be handling the largest financial transaction you will ever have, outside of a home purchase. Scary right?

Sorting through the sad cast of characters can be as frustrating as reading a foreign menu because it is just not a world most people ever have to deal with. Do you choose between them based on a nice suit, a good photoshop job, a picture of an impressive building or skyline? Do you read reviews, are they real, what “awards” are phony? We will work through some good criteria here together.

Our Personal Injury Practice Areas

We are highly skilled at representing members of our community who have been injured in a number of different accident types. While we realize that no two accidents are the same, we apply the same level of skill and dedication to every case we take on. Our personal injury practice areas include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents. Because of Georgia’s tort liability system and fault laws, recovering the compensation that you think you deserve after a car accident is not always as straightforward as it should be. We help you prove fault, gather evidence for your claim, and handle negotiations with an insurance adjuster.
  • Dog bite claims. The owner of a dog that bites another person in Georgia should be held liable for damages, and Georgia maintains strict liability rules for dog bites. We can help you to prove liability and recover your full compensation amount.
  • Wrongful death. There are few things more difficult than losing a loved one, especially when you know that the loss of life could have been prevented but for someone else’s reckless or wrongful actions. When a wrongful act leads to death, Georgia’s law allows the personal representative of the deceased to file a claim for damages for beneficiaries.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents. When a pedestrian or cyclist is struck by a motor vehicle, their damages are often severe and devastating. We want to help those who are recovering from tragic injuries recover the compensation that they need to pay for their medical treatment and address their lost wages and suffering.
  • Premises liability accidents. All property owners in Georgia have a legal duty – that duty is to maintain their property in a manner that is reasonably free from hazards and dangers for those who may enter the property. When a property is not reasonably maintained, an injury, such as one caused by a slip and fall accident, may occur. If it does, the property owner can be held liable.
  • Product liability accidents. Just like property owners, manufacturers of goods and products also have a duty to ensure products are reasonably free from hazards, and that warning labels make known any hazards that are inherent in the design (i.e. risk of electrocution, side effects of medication, etc.). When a product is defective in its design, manufacture, or label, and such defect leads to a consumer’s injury, the manufacturer may be held liable.

If you have been injured in an accident that you do not see listed above, please call our law offices.

Comparative Negligence Laws in Atlanta, GA

Another law of which to be aware when filing a personal injury claim in Atlanta is Georgia’s comparative negligence law. In Georgia, a claimant cannot recover compensation when they are found to be more than 49 percent at fault for an accident. In the event that a claimant is found to be less than 49 percent at fault for a personal injury, they are allowed to recover compensation. However, the defendant named in their suit will only be liable for the defendant’s percentage of damages. For example, in a personal injury slip and fall case in which the owner of a property is found to be 60 percent at fault, the property owner is only liable for 60 percent of the claimant’s damages.

Types of Compensation Recoverable in a Personal Injury Suit

When you are injured and need financial compensation to help you move forward in life, our attorneys at Christopher Simon Attorney at Law will advocate for your full recovery amount. You have the right to seek compensation for all losses, including:

  • Economic damages, which are the damages for your actual financial losses, such as property damage, lost wages, and medical expenses; and
  • Noneconomic damages, which are damages for immeasurable, intangible losses, such as the value of your pain and suffering, disability, loss of quality of life, etc.

In some cases, punitive damages may also be allowed. Punitive damages are damages that are awarded solely to punish the defendant in the case for willful misconduct, malice, or fraud. Punitive damages in Georgia are capped at $250,000, per Section 51-12-5.1of Georgia Code.

Is It Really Necessary I Have A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Sorting through the sad cast of characters can be as frustrating as reading a foreign menu because it is just not a world most people ever have to deal with. Do you choose between them based on a nice suit, a good photoshop job, a picture of an impressive building or skyline? Do you read reviews, are they real, what “awards” are phony? Personal injury lawyers are a dime a dozen in this city and having one all depends on the circumstances of your case.

A few things to consider when deciding to hire a Personal injury Attorney

  • Not sure who is at fault: If you were involved in an accident and it is not clear who’s fault it is, you should consider talking to an attorney. The insurance companys will try hard to blame you for damages in situations like this. An attorney can defend you from counterclaims and cross-claims and help protect your rights.
  • Experienced a serious injury or permanent disability: You cannot take your chances when a lifetime of suffering, pain and bills are at stake. Preventing lifelong financial stress is the job of a personal injury attorney
  • Being denied or have a claim delayed by the insurance company: The complicated laws and procedures involved in a personal injury claim are something insurance companies know individuals lack knowledge in. A Lawyer can assist you in this area.

So when do I need to call a Personal Injury Attorney?

You can choose to represent yourself in a personal injury case. However, the victim involved usually lacks the proper training and experience needed to negotiate with the insurance carriers and resolve important issues that arise in any personal injury case. We have over 20 years of legal experience and know what it takes to be on the side of our clients when things are not fair and the unjust need defending against insurance companies or negligent individuals. Chris Simon Law Firm will be able to educate you on your rights, give you a reasonable timeline and strategy for your case, and keep you informed as important developments arise.

Will I be speaking with an attorney or someone else when I call?

We don’t believe in not talking to our clients directly so when you call, you will speak specifically to one of the firm’s three Atlanta personal injury lawyers. Having multiple offices, we have the capability of helping many in the state of Georgia. With strong traditional ethical and Christian values, we are very clear when giving you your options before you have to make a decision. Because we care a great deal about our clients you must understand that we are selective about the cases we accept to make sure we are a good fit for each other. We pride ourselves in caring for our clients and are not like most Atlanta personal injury attorneys who will just take any case that comes in the door.

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.
