The effects of a personal injury caused by the negligence or carelessness of another can be devastating, both to the victim and their families.

Our personal injury lawyers in Atlanta use their years of experience to assist you and your family in fighting to receive the compensation you deserve to help restore your quality of life.Personal Injury Lawyers Dedicated to Fighting for Your Rights
Our Atlanta personal injury law firm has the unique qualification of having worked for years defending many of the largest employers and insurance companies in the nation. We know, therefore, how they operate and what they will try to do to deny a person the full financial settlement they are due. Insurance companies commonly work on the basis of paying as little as possible on claims. They utilize many tactics to reach that goal. David Van Sant and each of our personal injury attorneys in Atlanta operate on the principle that through hard work and diligence, we will work to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible.
We represent injured clients in Metro Atlanta and throughout Georgia with offices in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Cumming, Duluth, and Lawrenceville.Car Accidents
Across the nation, one of the most prevalent types of accidents remains car accidents. Due to the congested roadways and our large dependence on motor vehicles to get us from one area to the next, we spend a huge portion of our time in automobiles. When we get into an accident, we can sustain painful and life-threatening injuries.
With an experienced Atlanta attorney by your side, you can fight for the compensation you will need to recover from your injuries. Our car accident attorneys represent injured victims of car accidents throughout Georgia and can help you protect your right to a fair recovery.Truck Accidents
Due to the large size and speed of the truck, accidents involving large commercial trucks are some of the most devastating that occur. If you are looking to file a claim, it is important to keep in mind that you will not only be facing an individual driver, you will be facing the trucking company that backs him. You will need a law firm on your side with experience taking on the trucking industry–and winning.
The truck accident injury lawyers at Van Sant Law, LLC, are prepared to help you even the playing field when you are forced to take on a trucker and his employer.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!Motorcycle Accidents
As a motorcyclist, you are putting yourself in a vulnerable position. This, however, does not excuse the negligence of drivers who fail to operate safely around you. If they do not look out for you and do not drive in a manner that promotes your safety, they should be held liable for any injuries you incurred.
Police officers, insurance companies, and judges often make assumptions about motorcyclists being reckless and side with the driver of a car involved in a collision. This makes it very hard for bikers who were hurt by a driver’s negligence or carelessness to hold the driver accountable and get the compensation they deserve. We protect the rights of motorcyclists in Georgia and will fight for you when you have been seriously injured. Contact us today.Wrongful Death
“Not every personal injury claim involves the injured themselves seeking legal recourse. In some cases, if the accident was fatal, the surviving family can seek compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, the loss of future income, and even the loss of companionship. Your injury attorneys in Atlanta know how emotionally difficult it can be to handle these types of cases – you can rest easier knowing that we will fight tooth and nail to defend you.
If you lost a loved one because of another person’s carelessness, negligence, or willful intention, you may be able to hold that person accountable through a wrongful death action. Contact one of our Metro Atlanta law offices to talk to an attorney about Georgia wrongful death lawsuits. We want to help you protect and provide for the family that was so tragically torn apart by a negligent or careless person.Workers Comp

Workers’ compensation was created to protect the rights of workers as a no-fault type of insurance coverage.

If you have experienced any resistance from your employer following a work injury, you should talk to one of our workers’ comp attorneys as soon as possible.

Contact one of our Atlanta-area offices as soon as possible after your ordeal. We will get to work right away.Food Poisoning
When we go to a restaurant or food establishment, we are not typically concerned about the food itself. Unfortunately, due to poor hygiene or poorly handled food, food poisoning can occur. If you have sustained serious illness from contamination, we encourage you to consult with our personal injury law firm in Atlanta as soon as possible.
Salmonella, e. coli, and listeria are a few of the harmful contaminates that could be in the food you eat in a restaurant or school cafeteria or buy in a grocery store. Exposure to these kinds of toxins can be fatal in young children and older adults and those with compromised immune systems. If you or a loved one ends up in the hospital after exposure to contaminated food anywhere in Georgia, talk to our Metro Atlanta attorneys as soon as possible.Medical Malpractice
When we become ill or are injured in an accident, we trust doctors, hospitals, or other medical professionals to take care of us. When they behave in a manner that does not uphold the highest of safety regulations, serious injury and illness can occur. In these cases, they should be held liable for damages that have been incurred.
If you suspect that a doctor or hospital made a mistake that left you or a family member worse off after treatment, contact our medical malpractice attorneys in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Gainesville, or Sandy Springs. In a free consultation, we will take a look at your case and let you know if we can help. We take medical malpractice cases on a contingency basis, so you will not owe us a fee until we win for you.Nursing Home Abuse
In many situations, our elderly loved ones go to facilities to be sure that they are cared for. While many of these facilities uphold the best of standards, in some cases they can be negligent or flat-out abusive. Fortunately, there are laws in place that protect your loved one from such treatment.
If you suspect nursing home abuse, give us a call. Our personal injury attorneys in Atlanta can investigate the situation and determine if you have a case or not. If we think there is enough evidence to prove that a nursing home or assisted living facility abused or neglected your loved one, we will be able to help you seek financial compensation.Premises Liability
Were you injured on property that belonged to a third party? If so, and if the injury could have been prevented through better maintenance or better safety features, you could have grounds to file a premises liability claim. We recognize just how daunting it can be to deal with circumstances of this nature and our personal injury lawyers in Atlanta will do everything we can to help our clients protect their legal rights.
Premises liability claims are not easy to prove and many personal injury lawyers are not willing to put in the work it takes to win them. At Van Sant Law, LCC, however, we want to hear your story. If our experienced attorneys believe you have a valid claim, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve from the negligent property owner or occupier. The clock is ticking on your claim, so contact one of our Metro Atlanta offices to talk to an attorney today.Defective Products
In some cases, manufacturers are in such a hurry to get a product on the market that they do not adequately test it. This can result in a product that has unknown dangers or dangers that are known by the manufacturer but not revealed to consumers in the form of safety warnings. One example of prevalent defective products involves defective tires. We recognize these types of dangers and are prepared to help our clients protect their legal rights to the full extent of the law.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product–such as the DePuy hip implant or another medical device–contact our attorneys in any one of our eight Atlanta-area offices. We are committed to holding manufacturers responsible when they release dangerous products. Call us for a free case evaluation. As with all of our personal injury cases, you only pay if we win for you, so you have nothing to lose.Diminution in Value Claims
Following a car accident, it is possible that your vehicle lost a lot of its value. If this is the case, it can be confusing to move forward through the car accident claim. Our personal injury law firm in Atlanta is prepared to fight to give you the best chance of success at getting your full financial compensation – regardless of the diminished value.
Insurance companies know they owe you the full value of your car, not just what it is worth after the accident, but they will try their best to avoid paying you what you are owed. When you work with our attorneys on a diminished value claim, you can be sure your right to a fair recovery will be protected. Schedule a free consultation in one of our Metro Atlanta offices to find out if you have a claim against an insurance company.
