Posted by on May 31, 2018 in Blog, personal injury

In 2015, five nursing students from Georgia Southern University were killed when their cars were hit by a tractor-trailer. The truck driver, who was charged with homicide for these senseless deaths, was texting at the time of the collision and completely failed to stop before rear-ending the students.

Why You Should NEVER Negotiate With a Car Insurance Company Without a Lawyer

Posted by on January 31, 2018 in Blog

Car insurance companies spend tens of millions of dollars every year on ads designed to convince you that they are your “good neighbors,” that you will be “in good hands” with them, or that they are “on your side.” But if you’ve been injured in a car accident and have to deal with the other driver’s insurance company, all of those statements are as believable as a talking gecko. Too many car accident victims place too much faith in the insurance company’s good faith and try to negotiate their claim by themselves, without the assistance of an...

Alpharetta Residents Want to Know: Why Do Some Car Accident Lawsuits Take So Long?

Posted by on October 31, 2017 in Blog, personal injury

Picture it: You’re riding along in Alpharetta when you come to a stop light. The other driver runs the light and T-bones your car. Perhaps he or she was texting when the accident occurred. Maybe the other driver was drunk well past the legal limit when they swerved into your lane and caused your wreck. They even said “I’m so sorry! This is all my fault!”

If you were hurt in such an accident, you’d probably think that your personal injury suit to recover compensation for your losses was a “slam dunk” that should be resolved with money in your pocket in a matter of weeks. In personal injury suits, however, there is no such thing as a “slam dunk.” Even with a skilled and aggressive Alpharetta accident attorney doing everything he or she can to move the case forward, seemingly simple cases can take months, if not years, to resolve. This is understandably frustrating for injury victims who need their compensation as soon as possible. But why do some personal injury suits like that take so long? We’ll explain it here.
