According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there were approximately 28 million unintentional, non-fatal injuries in the United States in 2017 (the latest year for which data are currently available).
The same research shows that there were nearly 170,000 deaths caused by unintentional injuries that same year. While many of these injuries and deaths may have been unintentional, that does not mean negligence was not involved.

When you are injured you need a team who will fight for you. Hire our firm and you will get a family of individuals who are dedicated to you recovery.
In the wake of a serious accident or injury, you need someone on your side who can help you take on the insurance company and hold the negligent party accountable for the harm they have caused you. The goal of the insurance company is to pay injured victims as little as possible and then move on.
Often, this leads to victims unknowingly accepting lowball settlements that do not even begin to cover their expenses and total lifetime costs. Having a legal advocate fighting for you can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
Choosing an attorney with the right experience matters. At Adams, Jordan & Herrington, P.C., we have successfully helped numerous clients receive the compensation they were owed, securing millions of dollars on behalf of injured victims and the families of those wrongfully killed.

Do I need to hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?
While you are not required by law to have a lawyer represent you in your personal injury case, your success rate goes up significantly when you have a trained attorney on your side who can help present the facts of your case in a compelling manner. Additionally, in the case of serious injuries, when you have a lawyer representing your case, this allows you to focus on recovery rather than your lawsuit.
How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?
Again, the amount of time it takes to reach a settlement varies from case to case. Your personal injury lawsuit may take anywhere from several months to several years. Contact our office today to discuss your situation with our team.
Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me?
No! In fact, we encourage you to discuss your injury and your case with a skilled lawyer before giving either your insurance company or someone else's a final answer regarding settlement amounts. In fact, it is in your best interests to avoid speaking to insurance adjusters altogether until you have discussed your rights with an attorney. Until you have considered every angle, you can't be sure that you're receiving fair compensation.
Is there a time limit for filing an injury lawsuit?
Yes; this law is referred to as the statute of limitations, and it varies from state to state. In Georgia, you are allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit for up to two years after the date of your injury, but the amount of time can vary depending on the circumstances of your case. Always consult a legal professional to confirm the statute of limitations for your case.
What kind of damages can I receive for my personal injury claim?
As your representation, we seek the maximum amount of compensation possible to help you to fully recover from your injuries and move on with your life. Some of the available damages we pursue include current and future medical expenses, property damage, lost income and opportunity, permanent disability, loss of consortium for clients who lost their spouses, and pain and suffering. We may also seek punitive damages when circumstances allow.
How does the personal injury lawsuit process work?
As your personal injury lawyers, we will help guide you step by step through the lawsuit process. In general, these are the steps that make up that process: 1. You are injured and hire a lawyer to represent you. 2. We will examine your case and determine whether or not we believe you have grounds for a claim and a case we can win. 3. We will serve a notice of claim on the defendant (the party that injured you) and their insurance company. 4. We will begin the pre-trial litigation process in which we will gather evidence and build your case while also dealing with the defendant and their attorney. 5. If the defendant offers a fair settlement, we will walk through the negotiation and settlement process with you. 6. If the defendant refuses to settle or offer a fair settlement, we will take your case to court and fight for your fair compensation.
