Marietta, Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers
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)
Van Sant’s law firm is a very professional group of people. They made me feel confident and provided me with the utmost respect during my process with them. I highly recommend this group, very knowledgeable and well experienced in relation to my case. Thank you so much for your services!

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.
- 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.
The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- A motorist turns left in front of you
- Texting while driving
- A motorist merges into you
- Intoxicated driving

Even then, our legal fees will be proportionate to the amount you win, to make sure you come out ahead.
