Personal Injury Lawyer for Roswell and Surrounding Areas
Roswell is one of the top ten most populated cities in Georgia. Roswell lies just north of Atlanta. It shares its borders with the cities of Milton, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Peachtree Corners, and Sandy Springs.
Roswell residents are fortunate to live in a city that has easy and fast access to everything outdoors. The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a vast forest with 127 acres. It offers hikers and cyclists four nature trails to explore. The nature trails travel across wetlands and woodlands. With trails like the Big Creek Greenway, and rivers including the Chattahoochee River, Roswell residents take advantage of what nature offers.
In 2010 CNN named Roswell number 76 in its list of Top 100 Places to Live in the US. And there’s good reason for that: Roswell has 22 parks with 918 acres of active and passive parkland and facilities.
It has been ranked one of the safest cities to live in the US according to City Crime Rankings, and Atlanta Magazine has twice chosen Roswell as the best place to live in the Metro-Atlanta area.
For all of these reasons we chose Roswell to open our Roswell personal injury law firm.

Hire a Fighter
Before you hire a personal injury lawyer, make sure you do your research. You want a fighter who knows what it takes to build your case. Below are three video clips of our Roswell trial lawyers that either show what our lawyers do to build a case for trial, or what we do to fight for victims of crime.
Darren reviewed all of the medical records ahead of time so that there would be no surprises at the orthopedic surgeon’s deposition.
Jeb traveled to New York to depose a security guard who had failed to provide proper security at an apartment complex.
Our firm fights for victims of sexual assault. Jeb was asked to speak at the Georgia General Assembly on the importance of laws that help victims of abuse.
Roswell Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents are what we informally call “wheels accidents.” It doesn’t matter what kind of wheels accident it is, the results are usually the same–serious injuries and serious pain.
Our Roswell personal injury lawyers have helped hundreds of victims of wheels accidents. Our experience and our results is what sets us apart. We have won cases in the courtroom, and have also settled cases when the circumstances called for settlement.
We understand how car insurance companies operate, and we know the tricks that insurance companies use to minimize what they should pay. We also know how to find additional insurance that other lawyers may not know about. We pursue liability insurance policies, underinsured motorist insurance policies, and resident relative polices—and we often find insurance that our clients didn’t even know they had.
Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents all involve vehicles and our lawyers know which laws to cite depending on what kind of wheels case it is. We take the time to craft the right strategy in each case so that we can lay the foundation for a successful resolution. Part of that strategy includes thinking about what questions to ask doctors and key witnesses, and deciding what documents to file with the court.
At our firm we like to say that it is a client’s job to focus on getting better; it is our job to focus on the rest.
Roswell Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Nature trails, rivers, and highly-rated restaurants make Roswell a pedestrian friendly city. It’s not uncommon to see residents and tourists walking on Canton Street and around the city.
Pedestrians are supposed to cross the street in the crosswalk. But even when pedestrians do what they’re supposed to do, drivers don’t always see them.
The Uniform Rules of the Road set out rules that govern all drivers. Some of the rules that govern motorists and pedestrians include:
- O.C.G.A. § 40-6-91: motorists must stop their cars and yield to pedestrians who are walking in a crosswalk;
- O.C.G.A. § 40-6-93: motorists must exercise due care for pedestrians who are walking on the road;
- O.C.G.A. § 40-6-180: motorists must drive at a reasonable and prudent speed;
- O.C.G..A § 40-6-390: motorists must not drive recklessly.
At a minimum, all motorists must always keep a proper lookout ahead.
Unfortunately, motorists don’t always follow these rules. When they don’t, pedestrians suffer the consequences. Our Roswell injury lawyers know which laws to apply and how to make insurance companies pay so that our clients can make the best possible recovery.
Roswell Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Many Roswell residents enjoy spending time in the beautiful outdoors that Roswell offers. For that reason it’s common to see outdoor enthusiasts cycling on Roswell’s roads and on trails.
Cycling providers a healthy and enjoyable exercise, and it gives people the chance to experience nature.
Unfortunately, cycling is not without its risks. While cycling is supposed to be safe, that isn’t always the case. Our Roswell injury lawyers understand the risks that bicycle riders face. We understand that cyclists and motorists have rights. When those rights are violated we know how to hold the offending parties and their insurance companies accountable.
Drivers owe a duty of care to bicyclists just as they do to anyone on the road. However, bicycling near motor vehicles carries risks. When a motorist doesn’t see a bicycle, the motorist may violate the bicyclist’s right of way. Common causes of bicycle crashes occur when a motorist pulls in front of the bicyclist, swerves into the bicycle’s lane, illegally turns in front of the bicyclist or tries driving around a cyclist. Even when a motorist sees a bicycle, they may not respect their right to the roadway. Just because Georgia law requires motor vehicles to give bicyclists three feet when passing under O.C.G.A § 40-6-56, doesn’t mean everyone obeys the rules of the road.
If a motorist is responsible for your injuries when you are in a bicycle accident, you have a legal right to be compensated for your medical expenses and other losses. When you consult with our Roswell bicycle accident attorneys, we’ll give you advice and explain what options are available.
Getting compensated for your injuries is important. Compensation for your injuries includes:
- Your medical expenses: You are entitled to get reimbursed for all of your past as well as your future medical costs.
- Interference with normal living: You are entitled to compensation for injuries that prevent you from enjoying the activities you used to enjoy before the accident.
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages: If the other party was so reckless that their behavior warrants special damages, then under O.C.G.A. § 51-12-5.1 you can ask for “punitive damages.”
If you find yourself in a bicycle accident, the first priority is getting medical help. If while at the scene of the accident you are able to speak with the driver who struck you then call 911 and get the driver’s insurance information. After you have spoken with police and gotten yourself checked out by the right medical professionals, consider consulting with a Roswell bicycle accident lawyer. Even if you decide not to hire a lawyer its in your interest to first speak with a lawyer who can prepare you for what you will likely be asked by the other driver’s insurance company’s representatives.
