Personal Injury Defense Attorney Atlanta
If another person was injured in an accident in or around Atlanta and they’re filing a lawsuit against you, we could help. Here at Van Sant Law, we have a lot of experience when it comes to dealing with a wide range of legal issues. We are here to help you get your point of view across.
We can help you prove that you were not to blame for the accident or we could help you to raise specific legal defenses. These legal defenses could make a real difference to the case.
When someone files a lawsuit there are usually at least two parties that are involved in the process. The two parties are the plaintiff and the defendant. The plaintiff is the person who is filing the claim or lawsuit. The defendant is the person who is being sued. If you have been handed a summons it means that another person or party is attempting to make a claim against you.
How We Can Help
If you have been served a summons we can help you deal with it. We can help you to understand what the summons says and what you need to do next. We can also advise you as to whether we think you should admit or deny any of the statements that are involved in the claim. The answer that you give also allows you to raise some legal defenses. This is why you should contact us as soon as you can. We can ensure you have as much legal help and information as you need. Talk to us today.
When you are given a summons, you will also be given a deadline to respond. It is vital that you do not ignore this deadline. If you were to ignore the deadline the court could find in favor of the plaintiff. This could be the case even if you were not involved or you are not liable for the accident.
The good news is that most people have insurance that can cover any of the allegations that have been made against you. Here at Van Sant Law, we understand how insurance companies work and how they can be used to your advantage. For example, your insurance company might pay for the damage that was caused to the plaintiff’s vehicle.
If you do not contact your insurance company about the complaint, they will not be aware that they need to pay. If you do not have any insurance please contact us right away. We can help to protect your interests should the case end up in court.
