Norcross, Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers

Experienced Injury Attorneys Fighting for the Rights of Victims in the Norcross, Georgia Area

Norcross , Georgia doesn’t bill itself as “a place to imagine” for no reason. Fortunately for us, we don’t have to imagine Norcross, because we are frequent visitors. The attractions of Norcross range from the pastoral to the personal – we find the people to be the friendliest in Georgia, for example. The Norcross Historic District makes the town a fine place to stroll, weather permitting.

The drive back to Atlanta can be treacherous. While none of us have ever been involved in an accident on this route, some of our clients have suffered serious injuries this way. Unfortunately, a car accident is not the only way that the human body can be injured. When it is someone else’s misconduct that causes your injury, though, it is time to take action.

The Opposing Party Is Not Your Friend

Most personal injury claims are paid out, if at all, by insurance companies who make their money by collecting premiums and lose money by paying claims. The typical insurance company has hired an army of professional negotiators to find any excuse to deny or minimize the claims of injured victims like you. It is profit, not compassion, that motivates them – so don’t expect to be treated fairly.

You Pay Only If You Win Compensation

At Van Sant Law, , the situation is different, because our interests are in harmony with your interests. Under our fee structure, our fees are taken out of your eventual compensation. If you make nothing, we make nothing – and the more you make, the more we make. In other words, it is in our interest to make sure you win as big as possible. And it means we will not allow you to be bullied by greedy insurers.

Types of Cases We Handle

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The Defendant Has No Insurance and No Financial Resources. Could Another Party Be Held Liable for My Injury?

Depending on the facts of your case, the following parties might be liable:

  • The defendant’s employer.
  • The manufacturer of a defective product.
  • Your healthcare provider, if medical malpractice worsened your injury.
  • Your insurance carrier.
A Long-Distance Trucker Injured Me in an Accident. Can I Sue the Trucking Company?

In most cases you can not, because most long-distance truckers are considered independent contractors rather than employees of the trucking companies they work for. If the trucking company was itself at fault – by hiring a driver with a bad driving history, for example – you might win a claim against it.

How Does Comparative Fault Work in Georgia?

Under Georgia’s comparative fault system , you can win a certain amount of damages even if the accident was partly your fault, as long as the defendant’s fault was greater than yours. If so, your damages will be reduced in exact proportion to your fault.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Pursue an Out-of-Court Settlement?

Yes, for several reasons, including:

  • Determining the value of your claim.
  • Negotiating against an insurance company’s professional claims negotiators.
  • Advising you against certain mistakes that could damage your claim.
  • Filing a lawsuit to pressure the opposing party into settling.
