We accept cases from clients and referring attorneys anywhere in the country. We are not a general practice firm; we are trial lawyers who only accept cases where an individual has been seriously injured or killed by the actions of others. We do not represent defendants or insurance companies.
We are here when you need us most, twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week.
Whether caused by an automobile accident, trucking wreck, or other negligent or reckless conduct, we will continue fighting until you get justice. Our goal is to alleviate all of your worries so you can put 100% of your attention on getting better and spending time doing the things you love again.
Our first priority is you. While most cases settle, we prepare each case as if it is going to trial. This is the reason Insurance companies know that if they are being unreasonable, they will have to most likely pay more once the case goes to a jury. While many law firms talk a big game, we have the verdicts and settlements to prove that we will not settle for less.

The Top Verdicts in Georgia
Largest Amputation Settlement in the State of Georgia, if not the Country. Plaintiff was fixing a broken down vehicle on the side of the road when a commercial vehicle driver who had been ignoring the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations veered out of the right lane, entered the shoulder striking our client.
What we believe
After a catastrophic wreck, insurance companies, product manufacturers, and/or company representatives will send a team of experts to the scene of the wreck to look at the vehicles, interview witnesses, collect evidence, and shape the opinions of the investigating authorities. These teams are on 24-hour standby and can often get to the scene before the vehicles have even been towed away. These teams have one goal in mind: shifting responsibility to you, the victim.
We believe that you have a right to your own response team that is only looking out for your best interests. Werner works with top experts, throughout the country, in accident reconstruction, biomechanics, kinesiology, product engineering, economists, and/or human factors. We conduct a thorough investigation from every angle. If we accept your case, you will never pay us a penny unless we win for you.
Most cases settle before trial. However, to receive the maximum award for your claim, your case needs to be prepared for trial. We work from day one to get your case ready for trial. Insurance companies know that we are prepared to try a case to verdict and that we have the skills to obtain record-breaking verdicts. Our results speak for themselves.
Finally, we believe in serving our community and country. The Georgia trial lawyers at the Werner Law Firm give back at every opportunity and have a proud record of service to our community.

The Werner Process
When a person or corporation refuses to accept responsibility, a bad situation becomes worse. Even when fault is admitted, powerful corporations and insurance companies often use their superior financial and legal position to take advantage of victims. That is where we come in. Our firm has the resources and ability to win any case against any wrongdoer anywhere in the country. It’s personal.
Cases We Accept
We represent individuals who have been seriously injured or killed by the actions of others. In Georgia and around the country, the plaintiff must prove every element of his or her case. The following are some examples of the types of cases we may bring on your behalf:
• Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care. Negligence is present when an individual’s careless act or failure to act has caused injury. While the act may be unintentional, the defendant may still be liable for damages. There is often liability insurance for acts of negligence, provided by auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, or another general liability insurance policy. A common example of negligence is a tractor-trailer driver causing an accident by following too closely to another vehicle and/or driving too fast.
• Strict liability generally applies to a product liability claim, which is filed against a manufacturer or product supplier for a dangerous product that causes injury. Corporations carry large insurance policies and/or self-insured retention policies to compensate victims of defective and dangerous products. A common example of a strict liability claim is a tire manufacturer failing to use a safer design in its tires.
• Punitive damages often arise due to intentional or reckless misconduct that results in an injury or death. If the misconduct results in death, the family of the victim may recover punitive damages under some circumstances that are intended to deter other wrongdoers from engaging in similar conduct.
• Wrongful Death claims arise from the death of a family member who has been killed by the negligence or misconduct of another. Under Georgia law, individuals have the right to recover “the full value of the life of the decedent without deducting for any of the necessary or personal expenses of the decedent had he lived.” The “full value” of a life in Georgia is not limited to those items having proven monetary value, such as lost earnings, but include the loss of enjoyment the deceased person has experienced. We have handled wrongful deaths claims with respect and compassion for over a decade.
