Why Do You Need A Lawyer After An Accident?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, especially a motor vehicle accident, there’s likely an insurance company involved. Insurance companies, despite their funny commercials we are used to seeing on TV (featuring friendly athletes and celebrities), are like any other business that wants to make as much profit as possible.
One of the ways it does this is by paying injured folks like yourself as little as they can get away with.
This is where Spaulding Injury Law can help. We are highly experienced in fighting the insurance companies and have time and time again been able to get justice for our clients in Alpharetta who have been injured.
Another benefit of our services is that we work on a contingency basis which means if we don’t get you a recovery in your personal injury case, you don’t pay us a single dollar. We only get paid if we get a successful outcome.*
What is the process for an Alpharetta Personal Injury Lawsuit?
1. An injury has occurred and an attorney is searched for.
The first thing that has to happen is you or someone you know has suffered an injury as the result of another negligent party. The next thing to do is to contact us for a free consultation. We will meet and discuss the details of how the injury occurred. If, after the initial consultation, it appears that you might have a case, we would agree to conduct an exploratory investigation and determine if the other party has applicable insurance and/or sufficient assets to cover any settlement or judgment. If the consultation and investigation lead us to conclude that the case is viable, a fee agreement will be signed and the attorney-client relationship will be official.
2. A complaint is filed and served
After establishing that a legitimate case exists, the plaintiff’s attorney will file a personal injury complaint. After the complaint is filed, we will have a month or more to locate the defendant and “serve” the complaint on him or her. All this means is that we physically deliver the complaint to the defendant in a way that can be verified, ensuring the defendant cannot later claim to not know about the lawsuit.
3. Pre-Trial and Discovery
Discovery is a pre-trial procedure where we and the other party, through the law of civil procedure, can obtain evidence from the other party or parties by means of discovery devices such as interrogatories, requests for production of documents, requests for admissions, and depositions. The purpose of discovery is to encourage parties to reach a resolution of disputes on their own, without resort to a full trial by the court. The free flow of information between the parties to a lawsuit is intended to enable each side to better assess the case, including the strengths and weaknesses of both sides, thereby promoting a more realistic view of likely outcomes that will lead to settlement.
It’s possible for a case to go to trial but most personal injury cases will end in a settlement. At any point in the process described above, the parties can settle and end the case, even before the complaint is filed.

When Should You Hire An Alpharetta Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you have been injured because of another person’s negligence, get in touch with an Alpharetta personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
If you wait to contact an attorney, you may make mistakes when talking to the insurance company, receiving medical treatment, or documenting evidence that could affect the outcome of your case. Consult with an attorney immediately after you sustain your injuries so you know exactly what to do to strengthen your case and improve your chances of recovering compensation.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Many people are under the impression that paying for an Alpharetta personal injury lawyer is something that they cannot afford, so they end up never hiring an attorney to represent them after they have been injured.
We work on a Contingency Fee basis. We don’t ask for money upfront and only collect a fee if we successfully recover compensation. Not only does this mean that you won’t have to pay anything right away, but it also means we will be even more motivated to reach a favorable outcome in your case.
What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
I was in a not-at-fault car accident in August of 2021. Having called Spaulding Injury Law to handle my case, I never had to deal with the other parties insurance and was able to focus on recovery. Ted was fantastic to work with, he answered all my questions, took time to explain the procedures and next steps, and keep me up to date with what was happening. They took all the stress of dealing with this major event off my shoulders. I have no reservations about recommending them and would use them again right away if I need to.
