Settlement Negotiation

Our attorneys won’t settle for less than you deserve.

Once we have an idea of the value of your case, we will attempt to resolve it at your direction. We will present your story to the insurance company, requesting compensation for what we think your damages are worth. This can occur at any stage of your case.
Most clients want to attempt resolution without filing a lawsuit, and in those cases we will present a demand to the insurance company and negotiate to determine what they are willing to pay. If you choose to accept this amount to settle the case, that is always your decision. If not, we will file a lawsuit and go as far as necessary to get you the result you deserve.

One thing to keep in mind is that the word “settlement” implies that you are taking less than your case might be worth. Making this decision can make sense, as it spares you potentially years of litigation and allows you to move on with your life. However, getting anything close to full compensation for your damages usually requires filing a lawsuit, and many times requires going to trial.

That doesn’t mean every case goes to trial – far from it. But showing the other side the strength of your case, and your willingness to go to trial if necessary, can sometimes change what they are willing to pay. You always have the power to resolve your case at any time. Cases can be settled before a lawsuit, during a lawsuit, on the courthouse steps the morning of trial, and even after a trial while the jury is deliberating.

We know how to win trials.

For those who want to achieve justice for what they’ve been through, going to trial is sometimes necessary. We are happy to see a case to trial, if that’s what’s best for you. We are confident because we have two powerful things on our side in every case:

  • The law — Georgia law is fair to injured victims, and provides us the opportunity to prove what your damages are worth to a jury of your peers.
  • The truth — We only represent clients we believe, and believe in. The truth matters, and no matter what the other side tries to do, if you’re truly hurt, and it’s someone else’s fault, you deserve to be made whole. Juries usually see through all the fancy lawyering and simply see the truth—that you are really hurt, that it’s the other side’s fault, and that they just don’t want to pay for it.

We are here for you and will listen to your needs during every step of this process.

My real satisfaction is making a difference in somebody’s life.
