Our Practice Areas



Car Wrecks/

Every year in Georgia, there are around 330,000 vehicle crashes on our roads. Those crashes lead to around 16,500 serious injuries and 1,200 deaths. These statistics point to the fact that vehicle crashes are an unfortunate part of life in Georgia, but what the numbers don’t illustrate is just how devastating they can be for the people involved.

Tractor-Trailer Wrecks/

Ethical tractor-trailer companies enforce policies that value safety over these short-term economic incentives, but not all tractor-trailer companies are ethical.  We share the roads with these tractor-trailer companies, and, unfortunately, when their drivers cause a wreck it almost always leads to a serious injury or wrongful death.

Premises Liability/

Companies that manage property must follow certain protocol that includes inspecting for property hazards and using reasonable care to fix those hazards.  If you or a loved one was seriously injured because a company chose to violate these rules, the Stoddard Firm can help.

Negligent Security/

Most people are no stranger to fact that the threat of violence is an ever-present fact of life. We secure our homes and avoid places that we know to be more dangerous. But what happens when we suffer a violent attack on someone else’s property, a place that we trusted to be safe?

Human Trafficking /

Human trafficking might sound like a problem that exists exclusively in developing countries that lack a strong, centralized government and adequate worker protection laws, but unfortunately, both sex and labor trafficking are problems in Georgia and elsewhere in the U.S.  As a result, it is important that victims of trafficking be aware that they have legal options available.

Sex Trafficking/

People tend to have misconceptions about sex trafficking. One assumption is that sex trafficking is rare in the United States. This is not true. While the true scope of the problem is unknown and many cases go unreported, largely due to the illegal and secretive nature of the trade, it is known that sex trafficking is well-established in the United States. In Atlanta alone, sex trafficking is an industry that generates nearly $300 million annually.

Catastrophic Injury/

Not all injuries are created equally. While some accidents lead only to minor pain, others lead to serious and/or debilitating injuries. “Catastrophic injury” is a term used to describe the most serious injuries a person can suffer. These injuries are the most painful, costly and inhibiting of all injury types.

Electrical Injuries/

Electrocution and electric shock might not loom large in public consciousness as a cause of serious injury and death, but statistics indicate that these events should be a more frequent topic of discussion. Every year, there are approximately 70 electrocution fatalities related to consumer products.

Wrongful Death/

Unintentional injuries are often preventable and typically the result of a careless or negligent act. When someone’s negligence leads to another person’s death, surviving family members can seek compensation through both wrongful death claims and related estate based claims.


Top Accident Questions, Answered.

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.
