Augusta Personal Injury Lawyers Pursue Full Compensation for Victims

Assertive Georgia firm takes on negligent individuals and businesses

Though you might be legally entitled to full compensation when you’re hurt due to someone else’s negligence, defendants and their insurance companies don’t just hand the money over. An aggressive attorney who is familiar with Georgia personal injury law can help you secure the payment you deserve to cover medical bills, lost wages and the pain and suffering you endured. Joseph T. Rhodes Law Firm in Augusta is a respected member of the area’s legal community, and our lawyers make sure that people hurt in vehicle accidents, falls and other incidents have the support they need to hold liable parties accountable.

Experienced attorneys handle litigation relating to car accidents, falls and unsafe products

For clients in Richmond, Columbia and Burke counties as well as other locations within the state, our firm handles a full range of personal injury litigation cases, including matters arising from:

  • Motor vehicle accidents — Under Georgia’s fault-based auto insurance system, it’s important to retain an attorney who knows how to demonstrate who was responsible for a car or truck accident.
  • Slip and fall incidents — Property owners and others with control over premises must take reasonable measures to ensure that their premises are safe. If you’ve fallen and been injured because of a slippery floor, cracked sidewalk or some other hazard that should have been marked or remedied, we’ll make every legal effort to hold the negligent party or parties accountable.
  • Defective products — Our firm takes on the makers of products that injure users and bystanders due to flaws in design, manufacture or labeling. When necessary, we bring in experts to pinpoint where the problem occurred.
  • Injuries caused by drunk drivers — Along with facing potential criminal liability, drivers who cause crashes due to intoxication or drug use can be required to pay victims for the damage they caused.

You have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit under Georgia’s statute of limitations. No matter what type of injury occurred, it’s important to remember that hesitating increases the likelihood that key witnesses or evidence will be lost. By offering negligence victims a free initial consultation, we give them the chance to start the process of obtaining justice right away.

Knowledgeable advisers guide plaintiffs through the injury claim process

Whether the liable party in your case is a careless driver or a major corporation that failed to honor safety standards, their interests will usually be represented by an insurance company. These carriers focus on reducing costs rather than fully compensating people who have been harmed by their policyholders. Our firm is determined to even the odds in these cases by developing a complete perspective on what occurred and accurately assessing the value of a potential claim. We don’t let clients get bullied into unfair settlements and press for maximum reimbursement during settlement negotiations and trials.
