Car accidents quickly come to mind when people think of personal injury attorneys. The fact of the matter, however, is that there are many other ways in which people may have been injured through no fault of their own. Such accidents can leave a victim with extensive medical bills, the inability to earn a living, and in a state of chronic pain. Fortunately, the victims and families of such accidents have options. Richard Summers is an Atlanta personal injury attorney who handles a wide range of matters. If you or a loved one have been injured through no fault of your own then contact our office today to speak with a lawyer. We handle matters throughout the state of Georgia.
Lawyer assisting the Atlanta victims of serious injuries
There are a variety of ways, not involving car accidents, in which individuals may find themselves injured. Examples of such situations include:
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability or “slip and fall” cases
- Dog bites
- Workplace injuries caused by third-parties
- Nursing home abuse
Such situations can result in current and future lost wages, current and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and even punitive damages in extreme situations. Fortunately, Georgia law allows for a victim to be compensated for such harm and generally allows for a lawsuit to be filed within two years of the time of the accident. The types of cases listed above can often involve complicated legal issues and large corporate entities as defendants. It is important that you retain an attorney who is experienced in handling such matters.
Richard Summers is an Atlanta lawyer who has been practicing law since 1978. Prior to your initial consultation he will have reviewed any available records which relate to your case. He will then use your consultation to give you an honest evaluation and to help you understand what it is you should expect from the process. He will conduct a full investigation into the matter. This investigation will include, if necessary, a private investigator and expert witnesses. We will work to earn you the highest possible settlement but, if an agreement cannot be reached, then we will not hesitate to take your case to trial. We will make sure that you are prepared for the case to go forward and that your rights are protected from beginning to end. Contact us today.
Attorney providing regular communication to Atlanta accident victims
One is already frustrated and angry if they have suffered an injury due to another’s negligence. Such a victim does not need the added stress of having a lawyer who does not return phone calls. Richard understands that one of the most common complaints against attorneys is that they fail to communicate with their clients and he strives to be different in this regard. His efforts at communication include regularly providing clients with his cell phone number, promptly returning phone calls, quickly replying to emails, and making himself available to answer questions which you may have. We understand that this is a stressful time in your life. Our firm focuses on this area of law so that you may focus on the most important thing – your future. Contact us today.
