An Atlanta Injury Law Firm Whose First Concern Is Victims
Our Atlanta personal injury attorney knows from experience that victims and their families often are most vulnerable in the immediate aftermath of the devastating injury that has turned their lives inside out. As overwhelmed as you may feel, you can’t sit back and rely on the insurance company to do what’s right for you.
Insurance companies have their own financial interests at stake, making it very unlikely that they will offer you a settlement that covers all of your and your family’s damages related to the accident, including intangibles like pain and suffering. Having an Atlanta attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve can help you move forward with your life.
Depend on Our Expertise to Handle the Insurance Company
Don’t be a victim twice. If you or a family member experiences a serious accident with personal injuries, obtain prompt medical care first, and then consult with a proven Georgia trial lawyer at the personal injury law firm of James M. Poe, P.C., who can protect your interests. Avoid the temptation to move on and put the accident behind you by taking an insurance company’s offer of a fast settlement. Never sign any agreement relating to your collision claim without the benefit of legal advice. You could be signing away important rights.
Our interest is in protecting you and your family, ensuring that you recover all the compensation provided by law. From the moment we start working for you, we’re here to help you recover the maximum fair compensation on your claim.
