We Can Identify Your Damages and Pursue the Compensation You Deserve
When seeking a car accident settlement, you want to ensure your settlement reflects your past and future accident-related expenses. To do this, you need to understand the full scope of your current and expected medical care, as well as the value of your out-of-pocket expenses and pain and suffering.
We will review your bills, receipts, wage records, and other relevant documents to identify every dollar you are owed. If necessary, we will enlist the help of medical professionals, economists, psychologists, and therapists who can testify to your damages and necessary future costs.
Depending on the specifics of your accident and injuries, our attorneys can pursue compensation for:
- Doctors’ bills
- Hospital fees
- Emergency department treatment
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Prescription drugs
- Mobility aids and medical equipment
- Lost income, bonuses, benefits, and tips
- Loss of future earning potential
- Household services
- Stress, anxiety, and mental anguish
- Reduced quality of life
If you lost a loved one in a car accident, their surviving family members may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Wrongful death awards may include the deceased’s medical bills, burial and funeral costs, lost wages, and the loss of their care, counsel, and companionship.

Negligent Drivers Should Pay for Their Actions
A driver is negligent when they fail to operate their vehicle with a reasonable duty of care. Examples of negligence include:
- Texting and driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Disobeying traffic lights and signs
- Driving in the wrong lane
- Reckless or aggressive driving
To secure compensation for your losses, you must build a case proving negligence. Our lawyers can establish these four essential elements:
- Duty of care. All drivers have a responsibility to keep others on the road safe.
- Breach of duty. When a driver engages in one of the behaviors mentioned above (or acts irresponsibly behind the wheel), they breach their duty of care.
- We will establish that the at-fault driver’s breach of duty resulted in your accident and injuries.
- We will show that your accident and injuries led to financial losses and pain and suffering.
Other Potentially Liable Parties
Not all car accidents are caused by motorists. For instance, if you were hit by a commercial vehicle, you could hold the driver’s employer liable for their actions. Additionally, problems with an involved vehicle or even the roadway can cause collisions.
We can assist with cases involving:
- Vehicle recalls
- Faulty tires
- Defective brakes
- Negligent road maintenance
- Broken traffic signals
- Dangerous intersection design
- Trucking companies
- Government entities
- Rideshare vehicles (such as Uber and Lyft)
- Buses and taxis

We Can Determine Fault for Your College Park Car Accident
In Georgia, if you bear more than 50 percent responsibility for your accident, the court will bar you from seeking compensation, according to O.C.G.A. § 51-12-33.
Additionally, any amount of fault below 50 percent that the court assigns you will diminish your awards by that percentage. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to prove another party caused your injuries and protect you from allegations that you are at fault.
We Will File Your Case Within Georgia’s Car Accident Statute of Limitations
According to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, you must file your personal injury or wrongful death case within two years of the time of your accident or your family member’s passing. However, circumstances exist that could shorten this window of time. For example, if your case is against a government entity, you may only have one year to file your case.
Our lawyers can tell you more about how the statute of limitations may affect your lawsuit.
