They never returned calls, their staff couldn't fill out forms right leaving me to retrieve my medical records for... them. When they couldn't complete the case they said that another one of their lawyers would take over my case but didn't inform me he was not associated with them . So I had 2 separate lawyer fees taken out of my settlement. Just bad service all around. Not to mention it took just shy of two years to complete. I implore any who reads this do not use them for your case.read more

Top notch firm who helped us navigate our first and very stressful and frightening personal injury suit resulting from... a car wreck. Once everything got into their hands, the stress on my end totally went away. They handle everything, and they keep you informed. They are powerhouse workers, kind, patient, and compassionate with clients (I had lots of questions and often needed clarification, which was always given thoroughly and understandingly.) Lisa was the greatest advocate I could ever ask for. I felt like she was on my side and aggressively but respectfully fought for what we thought was right while at the same time being realistic with expectations and advising me well. I will say, though, the experience you get is probably dependent on how available you make yourself to answer phone calls, etc., so it maybe would not have been as efficient if I were not able to pick up every time she called. But that is on the client and not them. And it was not excessive by any means. Even with COVID they were timely. They are working to help you, so the least you can do is help them help you. All staff are professional, organized, communicative, timely, and make you feel like you are the only one they are working with. Highly recommend!read more

Frequently Asked Questions - Douglasville Auto Accident Attorney

The moments right after a car crash can feel like a blur – do you know what to do at the scene after an accident? When I talk to my clients about these situations, it is often too late, as they may have already made many of the mistakes that could hinder their Douglas County car accident case. It is essential to know what to do before an accident happens so that you can avoid mistakes and try to have the best outcome possible with your claim.

Here are our top 5 steps to take after a car accident in Douglasville:

  • Stop! Stay at the scene of the accident. If it is safe, move your vehicle to the side, out of the way of traffic, and turn on your hazard lights.
  • Call the police right away (911).
  • Collect driver and witness information, and take photos of the damage to cars and your injuries.
  • Seek immediate medical attention.
  • Call an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible.

Just as importantly, here are some mistakes NOT to make after a Douglas County car accident:

  • Do not admit fault.
  • Do not discuss your insurance policy.
  • Do not argue or debate the cause of the accident.
  • Do not accept “road-side” settlements.
  • Do not move an injured victim unless they are in danger.
  • Do not assume that you are not injured just because you don’t immediately feel pain.

If you or someone you know was injured in a car accident, do not delay seeking legal help to protect your rights. Give me a call today. I will be happy to discuss the facts of your case with you for free. 770-577-3020

Usually, your case will include nearly all of your expenses and losses. The most common costs are:

  • Medical bills
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Lost wages or time away from work
  • Medication to treat your condition

Some collisions have critical consequences, like severe physical pain, permanent injury, disability, or even a loved one’s death. If this is the case, you may be able to win a much larger financial settlement. We know that no amount of money could ever make up for a tragic loss, but it can help ease your financial trouble when things are difficult for you. 

Regrettably, many injured victims talk themselves out of a claim before they even speak with a lawyer. They suppose that the collision was just that—an accident. They may even blame themselves for what happened, even though they didn’t cause the accident. However, that’s not how the law sees it: car accidents occur because someone wasn’t paying attention, was reckless, or worse yet, broke the law. This is referred to as “negligence,” and the truth is, if the other driver was negligent, you have a valid case.

At Murphy Law Firm, we’ve helped injured victims win compensation in all kinds of auto accidents:

  • Rear-end crashes
  • “T-bone” accidents
  • Defective tires
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Head-on crashes
  • Distracted driving accidents (texting & driving)
  • Dangerous road conditions (fog, rain, etc.)
  • Drunk or intoxicated driving accidents

If the other driver doesn’t have insurance or fled the scene after a hit-and-run accident—we may still be able to help you win money. Call today for a free case evaluation in Douglasville.

Five Tips On What to Do If a Workmate Gets Hurt On the Job

Seeing someone injured on the job is scary and can leave you feeling confused about what to do. If that happens, here are a few tips on what to do next:

1. Give aid if you can, and call for medical help.
2. Shut down machinery, if necessary.
3. Report the incident to a Supervisor immediately.
4. Attempt to make the accident site as safe as possible.
5. Do not move anything, if possible. Do not clean the scene. Make a mental note of details such as where you were, what you were doing, and any accident details.

If you witnessed someone get hurt in the workplace, you will be interviewed, and it is important to gather your thoughts before giving a statement. Consider exactly what you saw and the circumstances surrounding the accident. Remember that accident investigations are fact-finding missions, not fault-finding ones. The goal is to learn how to prevent similar accidents in the future. When you are interviewed, give your complete version of what happened. Even small details can fill the gaps and lead to a safer workplace. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a workplace accident, give me a call. Murphy Law Firm offers free consultations so you can get the advice you need to protect your rights.
