With decades of experience, we handle complex, catastrophic, and significant cases for our deserving clients.

When clients choose to work with us, we commit to being there for them for life. Our service often begins at the most challenging moment, when a catastrophic injury attorney’s experience can help them secure a settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance provider.

Negotiating a settlement in a Georgia personal injury case can be a complex and involved process. Although all personal injury claims are unique, we provide an overview of the typical steps involved.

Settlement in Georgia Personal Injury

Partnering with a Skilled Personal Injury Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia

The process usually begins with a free consultation with a personal injury attorney.

During this initial meeting, our Atlanta attorneys will review the details of your case, assess the strength of your claim, and advise you on your legal rights and options.

If you have a viable claim and choose our law firm to pursue the liable party on your behalf, we will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your injury. This may involve obtaining police reports, medical records, witness statements, and other relevant evidence to support your claim.

Once we have gathered sufficient evidence, we will prepare a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company. The letter will outline the case facts, the extent of your injuries and damages, and the compensation you seek to settle the claim.

The insurance company typically responds to the demand letter with a counteroffer. Negotiations ensue between our law firm and the insurance company’s representatives, with each party arguing and presenting evidence to support their position. This negotiation process may involve multiple rounds of back-and-forth discussions.

We will carefully evaluate any settlement offers from the insurance company, considering factors like the strength of your case, the extent of your injuries, future medical needs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages, when determining whether a settlement offer is fair and reasonable.

If a settlement is reached, we will draft a settlement agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the settlement. Once both parties sign the agreement, the case is resolved, our agreed-upon legal fees are deducted from the total, and you receive the agreed-upon compensation.

While 90-95% of all personal injury claims in the U.S. are settled during the negotiation stage, if negotiations are unsuccessful and a fair settlement cannot be reached, we may advise you to file a lawsuit and pursue your claim through the court system.
