Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys Protect Clients’ Legal Rights
Helping injured individuals to obtain full and fair compensation
For more than 25 years, Rumsey & Ramsey has helped injury victims receive a just recovery by holding responsible parties accountable. Our experience has shown that in cases involving serious injuries or death, insurers and representatives of the liable parties often have a head start investigating the claim. That is why it is important to contact an attorney immediately if you have been seriously injured or a loved one has died. We can help ensure that important evidence is preserved and witnesses are located. With quick action and strong advocacy from our attorneys, you will have the best chance at achieving justice for the harm you’ve suffered.
Dedicated advocates for victims in motor vehicle accident cases
If you have been hurt in an auto accident, Rumsey & Ramsey applies the highest professional standards in handling every aspect of your case, including:
- Insurer communications — Georgia insurance law requires injury and property damage to be paid by the party held to be at fault for the accident. We will help you pursue compensation in the manner most favorable to your claim whether through your insurer or the other driver’s.
- Settlement negotiations — Most auto accident disputes are eventually resolved through settlement discussions. By gathering all of the relevant information and presenting it effectively to the adversaries, we can negotiate from a position of strength to improve your chances for a favorable outcome.
- Injury litigation — If no settlement can be reached, we are accomplished trial advocates who will aggressively pursue your legal rights so that you can be made whole.
While there are a number of factors that affect how much compensation you should receive for your injuries or the death of a loved one, we will meet with you to discuss your case during the free initial consultation we provide for injury claimants so you understand your options going forward.
Providing knowledgeable advice to people hurt in slip and fall incidents
For most personal injuries resulting from falls, Georgia law requires a suit to be filed within two years of the date that the claim accrues. If the negligent party is a city or county, special statutory notice requirements can be as short as six months, so it is imperative you contact an attorney promptly to see what timeline applies to you. If you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident, Rumsey & Ramsey will explain whether a duty of care was violated that might allow for the recovery of damages. Even if you are partly to blame for the accident, you can be awarded compensation under the state’s modified comparative negligence standard. That standard will set the percentage of your award based on the percentage of fault assigned to you.
