Car Accidents

Gardner Trial Attorneys is a leading plaintiffs’ law firm in metro Atlanta that advocates for clients who have suffered an injury in car accidents.

Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury in Georgia. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, or otherwise through the negligence or recklessness of someone else, Gardner Trial Attorneys can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for the damages you have suffered.

Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye. Operating a motor vehicle is statistically much more dangerous than any other form of travel. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, there were 1550 fatalities on Georgia roads in 2017 alone.

Even if you do everything you can to stay safe on the road, serious accidents and highway fatalities can still occur. When someone’s actions, whether accidental or intentional, lead to the death of another, the deceased’s loved ones may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death. Many factors can lead to auto accident wrongful death liability; the negligence or recklessness of another driver, criminal activity, even a manufacturing defect in a vehicle that the auto company has not addressed.

Gardner Trial Attorneys sometimes represents the families of people who have suffered grave injury or a wrongful death through no fault of their own. We pursue the best possible financial outcome for these clients by maintaining our focus and professionalism as they struggle with their bereavement. We keep them informed of all progress in their case and are responsive to any questions they may have. We take care of the legal work that needs to be done and help them by being the most effective advocate possible, leading them through the challenging litigation process to the compensation they deserve.

If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, particularly if you’ve been injured, the experience can be scary and disorienting. It is crucial to stay calm, both for your immediate safety and because the things you do or don’t do after an accident can have important consequences in how a claim is eventually resolved.


Our experience representing insurance companies sets us apart from other personal injury firms. Expert knowledge of insurance industry practices, differing types of coverages, and the law covering insurance companies allows Gardner Trial Lawyers to identify all possible avenues for insurance recovery.

Many law firms leave money on the table, either because they’re uncomfortable with the law at issue or because they don’t know some policies are available. We are creative in seeking to maximize financial compensation for clients.

Insurance policies are issued with maximum payouts. This means that the total amount that can be recovered for people who have suffered personal injury or a wrongful death remains the same regardless of the number of claimants for an accident. Payouts can be made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Cases sometimes must be prepared quickly because multiple competing claims can severely limit your recovery.

Establishing negligence or fault in a car accident is crucial to determining insurance settlements. You should be aware that insurance carriers have teams of adjusters and lawyers who begin assessing possible claims as soon as accidents occur. Insurance companies maximize their own profits by limiting their liability to car accident claims.

The police should be called any time there is an auto accident injury. If possible, you should take pictures of the scene and the vehicles involved. You should exchange contact and insurance information with every driver involved. It is also important that you or a lawyer notify your insurance company as soon as possible. You could forfeit certain benefits under your policy if you fail to contact them in a timely manner. Many insurance companies have provisions that require notification within 30 days or less of the accident.

If you have been injured in an automobile accident, you need a skilled attorney looking out for your interests as soon as possible. The most important thing you can do to ensure a fair recovery is to speak to an attorney before making any statement to insurance company representatives. We can communicate with your insurance carrier as well as the insurers of other involved parties in a way that will not compromise the strength of your claim. Insurance companies’ adjusters are not impartial. They are trained to minimize their companies’ financial exposure.



Gardner Trial Attorneys litigate aggressively and represent injured people and their families with compassion. We use our knowledge of insurance industry practices to determine the full value of your case and prepare for trial.

We take pride in the fact that many cases are referred to us by current and former clients. Insurance companies and opposing counsel know that Gardner Trial Attorneys prepare all cases as if they are going to trial. That is the only way to ensure the highest possible recovery in a car accident case.

We are very selective in the cases we accept. When you retain Gardner Trial Attorneys, you get our full attention and a long-term commitment to your welfare. We advocate for our clients by devoting all the resources of our firm to their case, maximizing financial results.

It costs nothing to speak to an experienced attorney. Call for a free case evaluation and find out what your case is worth today.
