Just one moment of inattention can transform your life – a driver takes his eyes off the road, a physician forgets to check a chart, or a grocery store fails to clean up a spill. However, one small moment is all it takes for a terrible accident to occur and leave you unable to work, facing stacks of bills, and suffering from chronic pain and trauma. If someone else’s negligence has led to your pain and suffering, the leading personal injury attorneys at The Fitzpatrick Firm are on your side and ready to fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Personal Injury Lawyers Standing Up to Insurance Companies
After a serious accident, you’re facing a long, difficult recovery process. Being unable to work and facing medical bills only compounds the strain you’re under. Often, this strain and worry lead victims to accept settlements from insurance companies that are far less than what their cases are worth or are even told they don’t have a case. They want to fight back, but the idea of navigating the legal system alone is overwhelming.
However, you don’t have to face this challenge alone. The Fitzpatrick Firm is Atlanta’s premier personal injury law firm that is dedicated to standing up to the insurance companies to secure fair compensation for our clients and hold those responsible accountable for their negligence. When we take on your case, we’re with you every step of the way, answering your questions, guiding you through the complex legal process, and advocating fully for your rights.
Who Is Liable in a Personal Injury Case?
In the state of Georgia, you can receive compensation if you are less than 50 percent at fault for the accident. This is called the legal doctrine of modified comparative negligence. Our team will fully investigate your accident to determine what you are entitled to. While we strive for a fair settlement, we are certainly not afraid to take your case in front of a jury if that’s what it takes.
Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases
A statute of limitations is the length of time you have to file a personal injury claim. In Georgia, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim with few exceptions. Once that time has passed, you are unable to move forward legally with your case. That’s why we highly recommend you reach out to us as soon after your accident as possible so we can discuss your case and file with plenty of time.
Our Personal Injury Practice Areas
We work with clients in and around Atlanta who have been injured by someone else’s negligence. Our practice areas include:
Car accidents happen every day around the Metro area and can be devastating. Whether the other driver was texting while driving, speeding, driving while intoxicated, or was otherwise at fault, we will hold them accountable.
Even though we rely on commercial trucking, these semi-trucks are responsible for over 100,000 injuries a year. We stand up to the insurance and trucking companies to secure your fair compensation.
Drivers don’t show the same care for motorcycles as they do for traditional vehicles, making motorcycle riders particularly vulnerable to injury. You need a strong attorney to take up your case.
We rely on healthcare workers to take the proper care of us when we’re sick or injured, but too often, simple mistakes and inattention can lead to serious injury. Our personal injury attorneys in Atlanta will hold negligent doctors and healthcare providers accountable for your pain and suffering.
Property owners and caretakers have the legal duty to ensure their property is safe for proper use. Whether you slipped on a spill at a restaurant or were bitten by an unsecured dog, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury.
If you were seriously injured at work and your employer is failing to provide proper compensation, we are on your side. Our lawyers will help you fight for your benefits when an employer disputes a legitimate claim or you aren’t receiving the full amount you’re entitled to.
Wrongful death is any personal injury case in which the victim died as a result of their injuries or trauma.
