The right Atlanta truck accident lawyers for your case.

If you were involved in a truck accident in Atlanta, you deserve support. Not hidden fees or sketchy billboard lawyers.

In 2020, urban areas accounted for 57% of motor vehicle fatalities, with one in four deaths involving a large truck. The statistics might be frightening, but one thing is clear: if you've been involved in a semi-truck accident in Atlanta, you aren't alone. With the city's dense streets, pedestrian traffic, and numerous road signs, it can be difficult to understand what happened or how to recover.

Hiring an Atlantic truck accident lawyer can help you sift through the evidence and discover the information that will help you advocate for a fair, fresh start.

Share the details of your case with Mighty Law today. Our expert Atlanta truck accident attorneys bring the facts out into the open and fight hard to champion your case. We say no to all quotas, quid-pro-quos, or conflicts of interest—in short, anything that doesn't help you get back to your life as quickly as possible.

The Right (and Wrong) Reasons to Get Medical Treatment After An Accident

If you’re hurt in an accident, the most obvious course of action is to get medical treatment. But getting treatment after an accident has implications that go beyond just your physical health. People get pressure from their attorney to get treatment, even though their attorney may not disclose that often medical treatment from an accident isn’t covered by health insurance, and your legal settlement may depend on the treatment you get.

FAQ

What should I do if I get in a truck accident in Atlanta?

If you've been involved in a truck accident in Atlanta, call 911 to report the incident and request any medical attention you need. Once first responders and law enforcement arrive on the scene, they'll help you write an official accident report. Gather as much information as possible, including driver's license and insurance information, photographic evidence, witness reports, and contact information.

The more information you have on hand, the more empowered you'll feel to begin your search for the best truck accident lawyer in Atlanta.

Is Atlanta located in a no-fault state for trucking accidents?

Georgia is an at-fault state, meaning at-fault laws apply to all trucking accidents in Atlanta. In short, the responsible driver will cover all damages incurred in the accident. Large trucking companies often hire top-tier legal representation, so working with an expert Atlanta truck accident lawyer can help you make your voice heard. This is where Mighty Law's team of expert lawyers comes in.

What is the average settlement for a semi-truck accident in Atlanta?

Unfortunately, there is no clear answer for the average truck accident settlement in Atlanta. Some cases settle for less than $100,000 while others reach into the millions. Your settlement will depend on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and medical costs, lost income, the presence of commercial truck safety violations, and more.

When you work with Mighty Law, our expert legal team will help you value the accident and advocate for the compensation you deserve.

Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in Atlanta necessary?

No, you do not have to hire an Atlanta truck accident attorney following the incident. However, truck crashes can become very complicated, and recovering from an accident can take up valuable time and energy.

You shouldn't have to worry about building a strong case, proving truck safety violations, or disputing negligence. Your Mighty Law team will look closely at your evidence and find the best way to present the information so that you can rest, recover, and reclaim your life.

How much does a truck accident lawyer in Atlanta cost through Mighty Law?

Our Atlanta, GA, truck accident lawyers work on a contingency basis, so you only pay if and when you win your case. For cases that settle directly before a lawsuit is filed, we charge a pre-suit fee of 30% or less of the gross settlement. Cases requiring a lawsuit come with a post-suit fee of just 36% or less - both legal fees are 10% or more below the industry average.

What does the Mighty Law process look like?

We know that it can be tough to build a support system after a life-changing event, so we strive to make it simple.

Start the Mighty Law process by filling out our easy online contact form or giving us a call. Then, we'll conduct a screening to learn the basic facts of your case and, if we think you have a case, you'll sign a retainer allowing us to represent you. Not only is there no payment needed upfront, we only get paid when we win. Once you're a client, we'll assign you a case manager to collect documents such as insurance information, medical expenses, trucking accident reports, and more.

You'll also receive a unique treatment plan during this time to help you recover. Then, your Mighty legal team will file a demand letter with the insurance company to begin negotiations. If you aren't satisfied with the payout, we may proceed with a lawsuit.

How long will it take to investigate a truck accident claim in Atlanta?

The average time to payout for a personal injury case is 1.5 years. That being said, the length of your specific case will vary depending on the insurance company, the complexity of the accident, and the negotiation process. Mighty Law will start building your case from the moment you reach out to ensure you receive compensation as soon as possible.

Who pays for medical bills in a truck accident in Atlanta, GA?

If you have health insurance, you can likely use that to pay for your medical bills. If you don't, many medical providers in Georgia will provide you with medical treatment in exchange for a lien on your case. A lien allows them to collect payment if your case is successful. Most lien providers require you to be represented by an attorney in order to accept payment on the lien. Your Mighty Law team will sign any medical providers' paperwork to ensure you get the treatment you need.
