As I said, my office doesn’t take every case.  We operate solely on plaintiffs’ personal injury work, meaning you have to be an injured party from an accident that wasn’t your fault. 

 1. If you have minimal property damage to your vehicle, you and I need to discuss whether your case is appropriate for my law firm and whether we’ll be able to support and document your injuries.

 2. If you had a significant delay in seeking medical care, several weeks without going to the doctor, you and I need to discuss how we can best protect you and whether we can proceed with your case in an appropriate fashion.

 3. Did the accident happen less than 18 months ago?  Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations, meaning you have to file a lawsuit within two years.  I am not able to drop everything to file a lawsuit if you come to me at the last couple of days before your claim expires.

 4. Do you have a personal injury case where it’s not your fault? 

     These are the types of cases we normally handle on a day-to-day basis in my office.  If you have something else and you need a referral to another lawyer, call us. I maintain an extensive network of lawyers.  I stay in contact with them.  I’d be happy to refer you to someone who is qualified to help you.
