We provide legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.

We have an ultimate professional responsibility to help you obtain the justice and compensation you deserve for your loss and suffering.
In Georgia, there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury, fraud, and medical malpractice claims; but personal property, trespassing, and debt collection claims have a four-year limit. It may take up to 2-3 years after the Complaint is filed to get finalized.
