A FORMULA FOR WINNING RESULTS
Atlanta’s Injury & Accident Lawyer
Our legal system is based on the idea that everyone deserves justice. When someone is injured because of another’s negligence, the law affords them the opportunity to file a personal injury claim to receive compensation for the damages they have suffered. We believe that you should never have to pay the costs of someone else’s carelessness, and we fight to make sure you are treated fairly and given the payment you deserve.
A serious injury has ripple effects that reach far into a victim’s life, impacting their families, careers and quality of life. While a personal injury claim doesn’t heal wounds, it offers justice through compensation. A successful personal injury claim can ensure that medical bills, lost income and other expenses are covered, so the injured person can focus on healing and rebuilding their life.
When we agree to handle a case, we devote our full resources toward getting results for clients. Building a successful case is dependent on the commitment of an attorney to investigate all the facts and tell their client’s story.
We intentionally handle a lower volume of cases than many other firms. This allows us to invest time and money in our clients’ cases. By keeping our caseload lower, we make sure our clients get personalized, dedicated legal representation.
Because we are discerning about the cases we handle, you can count on the Stoddard Law Firm to be straight-forward about the chances of your case. If we don’t believe we are the right fit for your case, we’ll tell you. This lets our clients know that once we take on their case, we are prepared to go all the way with it.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have a case?
If you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you could have a personal injury case. Every situation is different, so there’s no way to know if you have a case without consulting with a qualified personal injury attorney. If you are badly injured or a loved one has died, we are happy to speak with you and investigate the matter at no charge.
What does negligence mean?
When someone fails to take reasonable care when performing a certain task, they are being negligent. The term might apply to drivers, apartment management companies, doctors, store owners, product manufacturers, or any other party that has a responsibility to behave or conduct themselves in a certain way. When someone is careless or reckless, they could be found negligent if their mistakes injured someone else, caused someone else harm, or caused the death of someone else.
How long does a lawsuit take?
Lawsuits can last as short as a few months to as long as a few years – it really depends on several different factors. To ensure your claim goes as quickly as possible, it’s best to consult an attorney and begin the process soon after an injury. After hearing the details of your case, an attorney might be able to give you a clearer picture of your case’s timeframe.
What do your services cost?
A consultation with the Stoddard Law Firm is free. In most circumstances, we earn no fee unless we win your case. If your claim is successful, we take a percentage of the recovered amount.
How much is my case worth?
There’s no way for us to know how much your case is worth until we hear the details of your case. Be wary of any lawyer who gives you an amount without first evaluating your case. After evaluating the facts, an attorney should be able to determine how much to seek in damages, i.e., the amount of compensation you are owed for your injuries.
