Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers

No one ever sees an accident coming. You may be driving through an intersection when, suddenly, a truck plows into your side. You may be walking through your neighborhood when a vicious dog comes out of nowhere and attacks. Or you may be receiving medical treatment when a professional whose skills and experience you trust makes a devastating error. All it takes is one act of carelessness to change your life and your family’s life forever.

At Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., our personal injury lawyers understand the tremendous physical pain, emotional anguish and financial burdens that can result from an accident caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of other individuals, professionals and companies. We believe they should be held fully responsible, and that you and your family should be fairly compensated for your losses. We want to help you.

If you or a family member has suffered a personal injury, call us today at (866) 354-3544 or use our online form to receive a free consultation at one of our Northeast Georgia offices in Athens or Lake Oconee. We represent injury clients from across Georgia in the cities of Atlanta, Augusta, Macon, Columbus, Bainbridge, Brunswick and Savannah, as well as Athens, Lake Oconee, Wintersville, Hull, Watkinsville, Bogart and surrounding Northeast Georgia communities in Clarke, Oconee, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Walton and Oglethorpe counties.

Types of Personal Injury Actions

A personal injury case may involve minor injuries and slight property damage or significant catastrophic injuries, including paralysis, burns, brain damage or harm to the neck and spinal cord. Our law firm has experience representing victims and families in personal injury cases such as:

At Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., we dedicate the full extent of our talented staff, highly qualified experts and cutting-edge technology into developing personal injury cases for our clients and arriving at solutions that will help them to move on with their lives. We believe our firm’s skill, size and resources allows us to level the playing field against well-funded, well-organized opponents, including hospitals, corporations and insurance companies.

Keep in mind: Under Georgia’s statute of limitations, you can be barred from bringing most personal injury claims if you wait more than two years from the date of your injury (or the date you discovered your injury) before you bring a claim. Under Georgia’s statute of repose, in fact, you can be prevented from filing a medical malpractice lawsuit if five years pass from the date of injury, regardless of when you detected it.

Delivering Results for Personal Injury Victims

Through the hard work and dedication we give to each case, our Georgia personal injury lawyers have been able to secure numerous successful results for our clients, including:

  • $12.4 million settlement of a chemical pollution case in Fulton County.
  • $9 million settlement with a hospital and doctors for failing to secure a child’s endotracheal tube, resulting in the child suffering severe brain damage.
  • $5.5 million settlement for a patient who suffered brain damage following a hypoxic episode in a hospital operating room.
  • $3.5 million jury verdict against General Motors Corporation in a lawsuit alleging instability/rollover claims.
  • $2.75 million settlement in a truck collision case litigated in a West Virginia federal court.
  • $2.2 million verdict against a physician for failing to use a particular neurosurgical system, which resulted in the patient’s substantial neurological impairment.
  • $1 million settlement with a government agency due to police chase that left an innocent motorist with quadriplegia.

Our personal injury clients prefer a settlement, which provides timely closure to a painful chapter in their lives. However, we are always prepared to take a case to court when a reasonable settlement cannot be reached. The key is that we focus on our client’s unique needs and goals, and we tailor our strategy to meet them.

Our ultimate goal is to secure a recovery that will compensate our clients for any property repair or replacement, medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, emotional distress and other economic and non-economic damages they suffer. In many cases, we will pursue punitive damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
