Personal Injury Lawyers Handling Injury Cases in Cumming, Atlanta, Alpharetta and all of Georgia

Rather than provide you with just enough information to get you to call us, we at Van Sant Law, LLC have compiled a thorough list of the criteria that we use in deciding whether or not to take on a case. You can compare your case against the criteria listed below, and then decide if it is advantageous for you to contact us. This will enable you to avoid making pointless phone calls that waste valuable time in your case.

We typically only represent individuals in cases that involve the following:

  • The accident was not your fault – When your accident has been caused by someone else, this is referred to as “liability,” and liability is crucial to the success of your case. We must be able to prove liability, otherwise you will have a very small chance of securing any kind of compensation.
  • Your vehicle is visibly damaged – Simply put, the damage needs to be significant enough to convince a jury that you are injured. While we know better, most defense attorneys will point to a lack of vehicle damage as proof that you are not injured.
  • Medical treatment – We need to be able to provide proof of your injuries. That means being able to call a doctor into the court who will explain to the jury about the severity of your injuries. If you have only received minor treatment, from a chiropractor for example, that may not be enough to convince a jury to award you compensation.
  • Your accident should have taken place less than two years ago – If we have roughly a year in between taking your case and filing a lawsuit, we will be able to prepare the case to the fullest extent.

Should your case not match these criteria, we can refer you to a reputable Cumming personal injury lawyer who will be able to provide you with representation.

The Benefits of Specific Case Criteria

Our criteria for case acceptance may seem very specific, and even exclusive. The reason we employ these criteria is to avoid taking up a person’s time and money in a case that has a small chance of success. It also allows us to give full attention to the cases we do address. By being selective regarding who we represent, we are able to work harder for you.
