If you were injured in a car accident and believe the other driver was distracted, you can hold that driver liable for your injuries and any other accident-related costs. Unfortunately, proving distraction can be difficult. A distracted driving accident lawyer in Atlanta can help.
In business for more than 20 years, S. Burke Law has established a long track record of winning compensation for car accident victims, especially those injured in distracted driving crashes. We know the elements of a winning claim and how to build one; we also have unique experience with insurance companies.
Before starting her career as a personal injury lawyer, our firm's founder worked for an insurance company as a claims adjuster. Her time there exposed her to many of the tactics commonly used by insurers to deny or reduce accident victims' claims. When representing clients, our team draws on this experience to anticipate and counter any scheme to pay you less than you deserve.

We Hold Distracted Drivers Accountable and Fight to Win You a Fair Settlement
Distracted driving is unquestionably a problem in Georgia and across the country. The accidents it causes can be catastrophic or even deadly. While compensation may be available, unfortunately, proving the driver who hit you was distracted can be a difficult job. The team at S. Burke Law has handled countless distracted driving accident claims and we know how to approach these cases.
To win you the compensation you need, we must prove the driver was distracted and that distraction was the proximate cause of your accident.
The success of your claim hinges on the strength of our evidence, which is why we conduct a thorough investigation into your accident. The following evidence can often convince a jury that distracted driving caused or contributed to your accident:
- Police reports;
- Cell phone records;
- Witness statements;
- Photo and video surveillance;
- Smartphone app usage logs;
- Accident reconstruction;
- Expert witness statements;
- And more.
Count on the S. Burke Law team to be thorough and precise in our investigation, gathering the evidence we need to show the insurance company — and, if necessary, a jury — that you deserve the full compensation that we are seeking.
We Take On the Insurance Company and Never Accept Less Than You Deserve
Insurance should protect you during times of need, covering your property damage and bodily injuries after a distracted driving accident.
Unfortunately, it does not always work that way in practice. Insurance companies are businesses, and, as such, will do what they can to keep their bottom line low. This often means finding ways to give accident victims less than they deserve.
Sheryl Burke’s unique experience working as an insurance adjuster allows her to anticipate the tactics insurance adjusters might use to deny your claim. It also allows her to stand against the insurance companies without fear, fighting to protect you and your claim and getting you the compensation you deserve.
The Aftermath of a Car Accident Is Stressful — Let Us Take That Stress Off Your Shoulders
After a distracted driving accident, stress comes at you from many sources — the need for compensation to cover your medical bills and lost wages are among the most pressing troubles you face. But there is also a lot of minutiae to deal with that can amount to a substantial headache. This includes:
- Getting your car fixed, finding a suitable replacement if it is totaled, and securing a rental vehicle in the meantime;
- Scheduling doctor appointments and finding specialists who work with your health insurance;
- Finding doctors who can help if you do not have health insurance;
- Fielding calls from the insurance company and handling related paperwork; and
- Finding support groups or mental health counseling, if necessary.
