Marietta, Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers

Legal Experience and Expertise Serving Injury Victims in Marietta, Georgia

The location of Marietta, Georgia is ideal – a stone’s throw from Atlanta, yet a world of its own that bustling Atlanta cannot match in terms of friendly people and relaxing lifestyle. That must have been one of the reasons why CNN Money named it one of the top 25 U.S. retirement destinations in 2011. On any given weekend, you might find one of us enjoying the Strand Theatre or the weekly farmer’s market.

Living within a major metropolitan area has its drawbacks, of course. Traffic on the Marietta Parkway can get congested and dangerous, as can I-75 leading to Atlanta. Although car accidents are all too common on these thoroughfares, they are far from rare elsewhere in Marietta. Traffic accidents aren’t the only dangers that face you, however – the human body can be injured in any number of ways.

A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help If You Have Been Injured by Someone Else’s Misconduct 

Naturally, the Georgia legal system has prepared a remedy for those who have been injured through the misconduct of another party – a careless doctor, an intoxicated driver, or even an abusive security guard. A legal claim for personal injury damages, however, is worth less than an I.O.U. unless it is effectively enforced, usually with the help of an experienced car accident lawyer or other injury attorney. Only when that happens will your claim turn into money in the bank.

At Van Sant Law, enforcing the claims of personal injury victims is our mission – and it is our only mission. We have been so successful over the last few years that our peers have showered us with honors:

  • A BBB “A+” rating
  • Georgia Super Lawyers – 60 percent of our lawyers versus 2.5 percent of all Georgia Lawyers
  • A lifetime membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum (founder David Van Sant)
  • One of Georgia’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers (founder David Van Sant)

Learn More About Marietta

If you are injured in an accident, you will likely need to seek medical treatment before you contact a car crash lawyer. 

The emergency department at the Wellstar Kennestone Regional Medical Center in Marietta, GA, one of the largest emergency departments in the United States, provides a range of specialized care to accident victims and others who need medical attention for illnesses or injuries. In fact, the experienced physicians and staff at Wellstar Kennestone are highly trained and use state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and other medical technologies to treat all types of conditions including (but not limited to): 

  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes

  • Lacerations/cuts
  • Trauma from falls
  • Acute mental distress

In addition to providing trusted, compassionate care for adults, the Wellstar Kennestone Emergency Department is also well equipped to treat children of all ages and can provide casts for children, child-sized blood-pressure cuffs, smaller-sized crutches, and more. Separate entrances, care zones, and dedicated treatment rooms for pediatric patients and adults are designed to reduce time spent waiting for care, improve the patient experience, and reduce some of the stress that can come with obtaining medical treatment — regardless of the patient’s age. 

Open 24/7, the Wellstar Kennestone Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department provides the same, expert level of care to all in the community, regardless of a patient’s financial situation. The hospital has been recognized as an American College of Surgeons’ Level II Trauma Center, one of five Georgia Comprehensive Stroke Centers, and the state’s first Certified Comprehensive Cardiac Care Center.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How Do Your Previous Clients Feel About the Services You Offered Them?

Very positively, of course – for example, our founding partner, David Van Sant, won the Avvo Client’s Choice Awardthree years in a row. Avvo is a prestigious national lawyer rating service that is well-respected in the legal industry.

Will All of the Information I Provide You Be Held in Strict Confidence?

Yes, absolutely. Attorney/client privilege, a lawyer’s obligation to keep his client’s communications confidential, is a sacred principle for a lawyer, and any lawyer who violates this principle risks losing his license to practice law. Additionally, our own ethical standards absolutely prohibit this.

What Are the Main Types of Damages Available Under Georgia Personal Injury Law?
  • Economic: Easily countable losses such as medical expenses, lost earnings and incidental expenses.
  • Noneconomic: The aftermath of a car accident or other personal injury can also come with intangible damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the like. Noneconomic damages often amount to much more than medical expenses.
  • Punitive damages are occasionally awarded to punish a defendant for outrageous behavior.
What Are Some of the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Lane-splitting
  • A motorist turns left in front of you
  • Texting while driving
  • A motorist merges into you
  • Intoxicated driving
Don’t Worry About the Money

At Van Sant Law, it is the quality of your claim that matters, not the number of zeros in your bank statement. If we take your case, we will not charge you a dime until it is all over and your compensation is in the bank. Even then, our legal fees will be proportionate to the amount you win, to make sure you come out ahead. And if we don’t win, you won’t owe us anything at all.
