Our Personal Injury Law Firm in Atlanta is Fighting for the Rights of Injury Victims
An accident can transform your life in a moment. One moment you are going about your life, driving to work or shopping at the grocery store, and then, due to someone else’s negligence, you are in tremendous pain and need medical attention. From that moment, life becomes uncertain as you struggle to pay medical bills even while you’re unable to work, often while battling chronic pain and a long road to recovery.
When this happens, you need someone to advocate for you and help you recover damages for your pain, suffering, and lost income. Our highly-rated personal injury law firm can help you navigate the challenges of your case while fighting to get you the settlement you deserve so you can move forward with confidence.
Understanding Personal Injury Law
When an injury or death occurs because someone was negligent or because they failed to act in a way that would prevent an accident, they can be held accountable for their actions. Often, insurance companies are responsible for providing a settlement or damages, and their goal is to minimize their payout and keep their profits high. Rather than offering a fair settlement, they will offer a fraction of what the case is worth, often implying the injuries aren’t severe or the victim is really to blame for the accident.
Having a personal injury attorney to advocate for you improves your likelihood of getting the compensation you are owed. At The Fitzpatrick Law Firm, LLC, we will investigate the case, dig into accident reports and photos, and speak with witnesses and medical experts to get a comprehensive understanding of the accident. Using this information, we can get a clear look at what a case is worth and the strategy we need to build to get the best practical outcomes.
While we strive to settle out of court in order to get your settlement to you more quickly, we aren’t afraid to take a court to the jury in order to secure a fair amount in your favor.
