Personal Injury Lawyer in Decatur

I started my personal injury law firm in Atlanta because I have seen first-hand the challenges injured parties face getting the compensation they deserve. Before becoming a lawyer, I worked at an insurance company as a claims adjuster.

Now, as a personal injury lawyer in Decatur, I use the knowledge I gained as an adjuster to help those whose rights the insurance companies were actively trying to deny.

Let me put my experience and resources to work for you. Fighting for the rights of injury victims is more than just my career; it is my life's calling. I offer a free consultation during which we will go over the details of your case. I can answer all your questions and advise you on how to proceed with your case. Call today for an appointment: 404-842-7838.

The Team at S. Burke Law Fights for Your Rights as an Injury Victim

No matter how your injury occurred, our team will fight for your rights and for maximum compensation. The first step is investigating the circumstances surrounding your injury. We do this no matter what happened because, often, there are potentially responsible parties you may not have thought of. Once we identify all parties that could bear liability, we begin gathering evidence and building our case against them.

We have helped clients with the following types of injuries and more:

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents are a leading cause of injuries in Georgia. Unfortunately, getting compensation after an auto accident almost always involves dealing with the insurance company — a process that can be highly fraught with frustration and difficulty.

Fortunately, my experience as an insurance adjuster armed me with insider knowledge on how to fight the insurance companies and win big settlements for my clients. I have seen — and know how to counter — every tactic they might use to pay you less than what you deserve.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents differ from traditional car accidents in a couple of ways. One, due to the sheer size and weight of a tractor-trailer, these accidents usually involve more property damage and worse injuries.

Also, there are more moving parts involved when pursuing damages after the crash. We often go after the trucking company, rather than the driver, under the laws of vicarious liability. These laws hold employers liable for their employees’ actions committed within the scope of employment.

While this might mean a bigger payout, it also means dealing with a large, experienced insurance company. This is where my knowledge and experience can benefit you.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are all too common in Decatur and all over the state. It can seem impossible to deal with your serious injuries, mounting bills, and a greedy insurance company that wants to give you as little as possible. Our team will do what it takes to get the insurer to pay you what you deserve.

Slip and Fall Accidents

It does not matter if you slipped and fell at a grocery store or your friend’s apartment complex. If another party could have prevented your injury from occurring, you may be entitled to compensation. We will determine your liable party(s) and stand up to the insurer on your behalf.

Wrongful Death

The worst kind of personal injury case involves a loss of life. If another party’s negligence caused the death of your loved one, you can file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and pain and suffering.

Other Personal Injuries

In addition to the common types of personal injury cases listed above, we have also helped our clients win compensation for:

  • Workplace accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Incidents resulting from inadequate security
  • Motorcycle accidents

‚ÄčThis list is not exhaustive. If you suffered ANY type of injury in the Decatur area, call S. Burke Law at 404-842-7838 to see how we can help.

Talk to S. Burke Law Before Speaking with the Insurance Company

When another party is clearly responsible for your injury, you will likely receive a call from that party’s insurance company.

You never want to take these calls if you have not spoken with an attorney first. The reason is simple — the other party and the insurance company are looking out for themselves, not you. The purpose of this call is to pressure you into a quick settlement that pays you much less than you deserve. Or, it might attempt to obtain a recorded statement from you. The insurer will use anything you say in this recorded statement to reduce or deny your claim.

Before you talk to anyone else, speak with my team at S. Burke Law. We can advise you on how to proceed and, if you decide to move forward, we will take over all correspondence with the other side. This can help keep you from jeopardizing your right to the compensation you deserve for the damages you suffered.
