Tractor Trailer T-boned our client at an intersection who suffered multiple orthopedic and internal injuries. During litigation, client underwent multiple surgeries to treat his internal injuries and ultimately ended up with a colostomy. Tractor Trailer driver and company admitted fault, but disputed damages. We proved our case by using Plaintiff’s treating general surgeon as our expert.
A truck ran a red light hitting our client. At the scene, the truck driver blamed our client for running the light. We quickly proved he was lying after filing suit and litigating. Once we proved the Defendant was at fault for causing the wreck, Defense claimed the traffic light was malfunctioning. Ultimately, we won the case.
Tractor Trailer driving on GA 316 turned left in front of our client who was going straight. Our client suffered multiple orthopedic injuries, including a broken leg and two broken ankles. She also required multiple surgeries in the past and future. We received a verdict of just over $15 million.
Our client was attempting to turn left when a tractor-trailer struck him. The Truck company and driver said that our client ran a red light and that they had the right-of-way. The question was who had the right of way at the intersection, the truck going straight or our client turning left? The jury agreed with us, the truck driver ran the red light.

When our client sustained a severe brain injury after a Conway Tractor Trailer slammed into his vehicle, the trucking company blamed our driver. Even the witnesses blamed our driver. However, the physical evidence did not support their stories, so we went to work. Through experts and reconstruction, we were able to prove that the Conway Truck ran a red light causing the collision. Top offer prior to trial: $125,000 to settle. We received a verdict of $11.7 million.
Our Client was riding a motorcycle when an emergency vehicle pulled out in front of him failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. Defense claimed that our Client was speeding.

Highest verdict or settlement for a broken finger in the State of Georgia if not the country. Plaintiff was involved in a collision and broken his fourth finger.

Our client was riding a motorcycle through an intersection when a truck pulled out in front of him. Our client swerved to avoid the collision, but unfortunately, the bumper of the truck struck his lower leg and his leg could not be saved. The commercial vehicle had a stop sign and claimed he never saw our client and that our client must have been speeding. After two years of litigation, the truck driver’s company and truck driver admitted liability.
Our Client was rear ended in a tractor trailer while traveling on I-16. He died on the scene. On behalf of the family, we began negotiating in hopes to avoid a lawsuit.
