- Pain and suffering
After investigating the details of your case, we will determine how much your case could be worth and negotiate a settlement for you.

How We Work for You
We not only represent you – we manage your whole case. The ways we work for you include:
- Filing your claim and handling all communication with the insurance company
- Negotiating with the claims adjuster if necessary
- Taking your case to court if we cannot reach an agreement on your payout with your insurer
- Making in-person appearances in court on your behalf
- Collecting evidence, such as pictures and the police report
- Obtaining your medical records
- Calculating your damages and determining how much compensation you are owed
- Establishing negligence on the other party’s end

You Have Little Time to Pursue Compensation
According to O.C.G.A § 9-3-33, personal injury victims generally have two years to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages someone else is responsible for. It may seem like there is no rush to get the ball rolling, but there is plenty of work for one of our lawyers to accomplish, and it is best for them to get started on your case as soon as possible.
If you wait too long to file a lawsuit, you may be barred from seeking the compensation you deserve, and we do not want that to happen to you. We know what you have been through and will take care of everything for you once you make the call to us.
You Pay No Fees Unless You Win
At Kaine Law, we work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning you pay nothing up front for our legal services. You only pay if we obtain compensation on your behalf, and we take our fees from your winnings.
If we are unable to secure a settlement or judgment in your drunk driving case, we do not get paid. Our Atlanta car accident lawyers protect our accident clients in many ways, including financially.

Take the Following Steps If You’ve Been Injured in an Auto Accident
The aftermath of a car accident can be chaotic. However, you can take important steps for your case immediately following the crash and in days and weeks to come.
Seek Medical Attention
If you or a loved one is seriously injured, your first priority should be to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. You may be able to wait if your injuries are not severe, but you should still visit a hospital relatively quickly to obtain treatment and to document your injuries.
Some injuries take time to manifest, but it is important to get medical care right away. Also, if you wait too long to see a doctor, an insurance company may argue that your injuries are not connected to the accident to avoid paying you.
Collect the Other Driver’s Information
Be sure to get thorough contact and insurance information from any other drivers involved in the accident, even if they were not at fault. During this process, never admit any degree of blame for the car wreck.
Speak with Witnesses
If any bystanders witnessed the accident, speak with them and get their contact information. We may wish to speak with these witnesses if you later need to seek compensation for your injuries or property damage.
Notify Your Insurer
Notify your insurance company of the accident, even if you were not at fault. Your insurance company will attempt to obtain compensation from the responsible driver’s insurer.
Consider Connecting with Our Firm
We encourage you to reach out to our team immediately after your accident, especially if you sustained significant injuries or property damage. We can help you seek money damages to cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. We can handle every other aspect of your case as well.
The aforementioned steps are crucial to take following a drunk driving accident. There is little for you to do before you hand your case over to us. We want you to protect your rights before we take over doing that for you. While you focus on recuperating, we fight for you to get the financial award you deserve after an accident someone else caused.
