Welcome to Morgan & Morgan’s Atlanta homepage. Here, you will find information about our Atlanta personal injury lawyers, their practice areas, and what you should know when hiring a lawyer. It is our goal to provide high-quality legal representation to each and every one of our clients.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, you should contact an attorney immediately. Time is of the essence in every Atlanta personal injury case. To protect your rights, your attorney needs to act quickly and preserve valuable evidence. Quick action can minimize attempts by the person that caused your injury, or their insurance company, to avoid responsibility for his or her actions. Gathering this time-sensitive evidence will help us ensure that those responsible for your injuries are held fully accountable.

What Do Personal Injury Attorneys Do?

A personal injury lawsuit is the result of a “tort,” or a civil wrong. An Atlanta personal injury lawyer attempts to right this wrong through the civil justice system. An experienced attorney understands how to effectively represent a client’s rights to obtain compensation for his or her losses. Our lawyers will educate the defense attorney and the insurance company about the injuries you have sustained, the circumstances of the accident, and other related losses. By telling your story, our lawyers work to establish the fault of the defendant.

Trial Lawyers

Some accident cases are settled without a trial. Other personal injury lawsuits have to be resolved in court. Every case is different. The personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are trial lawyers; we are expected to take cases to court if a fair and appropriate settlement is not offered. Many of our attorneys are in trial multiple times each year. If a settlement offer is not fair and will not adequately compensate you for your injuries, we are ready, willing, and able to go into the courtroom and fight for your rights. Our reputation in the courtroom precedes us. Other lawyers and the insurance companies know that we are not afraid of a trial and that we will fight for our clients.

Steps in the Personal Injury Lawsuit Process

Once a client hires us to represent them, we will immediately start working on their case. Below is a general overview of some of the steps involved in a personal injury lawsuit.

  • The attorney will contact the defendants and any insurance companies involved to discuss the case. In some cases, they may advise that a lawsuit be filed immediately.
  • An investigation of the events surrounding the accident or event will be conducted. Evidence will be collected. This may include witness testimony, surveillance video, or police reports.
  • All relevant medical records will be obtained. This includes progress reports and records. Usually, a final report from the medical provider will be obtained after the client completes his or her treatment. This information is used to determine the extent of the damages.
  • After analyzing the client’s losses, the attorneys will put together a “demand package” or “demand letter,” generally within 30 days of the end of the client’s treatment. This document will detail the extent of the injuries and the facts surrounding the accident, as well as itemize the monetary damages.
  • If the attorneys cannot reach a reasonable pre-suit resolution (settlement), they will proceed with a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Additional experts may be hired to support the client’s claims for trial.
  • Witnesses and evidence will be prepared for trial.
  • The case goes to court.

At Morgan & Morgan we treat each client with personal care. This level of care is absolutely necessary to achieve the best results for you and your loved ones.

How Long Does a Lawsuit Take?

Not every Atlanta accident lawsuit will strictly follow the steps outlined above. The entire process can take considerable time and in some cases may take years. A client only has one opportunity to pursue an injury claim and seek a fair recovery. Patience combined with the right lawyer are the keys to success in an Atlanta personal injury case.

Common Concerns

What If I Don’t Have Enough Money to Hire a Lawyer?

All of the work we do related to personal injuries is based on a contingency fee, also called “no win, no fee.” In other words, our clients don’t pay anything unless we obtain a recovery for them through a settlement or verdict. We are happy to address any financial concerns with our clients.

Who Do I Talk to First?

After seeking medical attention, it is important that victims contact an attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster.

Why Can’t I Sue Someone On My Own?

The short answer is: you can. But, remember that tort law can be extremely complex. A personal injury lawyer is a professional trained to handle these types of cases. Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure you are adequately compensated.
