Bell & Washington’s personal injury lawyers are experienced in cases involving injury including motor vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, bus, and taxicab accidents, as well as plane crashes, train collisions, boating accidents, and rollover accidents), construction and work site injuries, defective products, dog bites, pedestrian and bike accidents, premises liability, and nursing home abuse. We have successfully recovered large settlements and verdicts for victims of catastrophic injuries such as brain injury, back, neck and spinal cord injury, and burn and smoke inhalation injury, as well as for those who have lost family members to wrongful death.
In order for damages to be sought, an injury is not limited to physical ones. Being subjected to extreme emotional distress or verbal abuse may also entitle you to damages. In a case of death within a family, surviving family members may recover damages through Georgia’s wrongful death laws & litigation.
Mediation for Resolving Personal Injury Claims
Over the past several years this process has become one of the most prefered methods of arriving at a reasonable compromise settlement in an personal injury or wrongful death claim, especially in claims resulting in expensive and difficult to litigate to a jury verdict.

An Atlanta personal injury attorney at the firm can evaluate your case to determine if you have a valid case under Georgia personal injury law. In a personal injury case, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more.

Property owners are required to provide a reasonably safe environment for guests, visitors, patrons, customers, and anyone else invited onto the premises. If a hazardous condition exists which the property owner fails to correct in a timely fashion, he or she may be held accountable for injuries that result from the neglected hazard.
