The Strickland Firm
Negligent drivers and their insurance companies don’t always accept responsibility after an accident. They are just as likely to blame you for causing most or all of the accident so they won’t have to pay. Even when their liability is clear, they’ll still try to pay as little as possible by downplaying your injuries and saying the accident wasn’t very serious. This is why you need to have an experienced attorney represent you after a car accident or other injury.
Why The Strickland Firm is Your Choice for Personal Injury Law in Marietta
Ryan T. Strickland has over 15 years of experience handling personal injury matters for Georgia accident victims. Before focusing his law practice exclusively on representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases, Ryan worked for years as a partner in a major insurance defense firm representing all the largest automobile and trucking insurers in the state. With this knowledge and understanding, Ryan is intimately familiar with the strategies and tactics insurance companies employ when settling or defending an insurance claim. Lots of personal injury attorneys boast experience on the defense side, but few plaintiffs’ lawyers have the level of defense experience of a partner in a major firm. This expertise proves invaluable in helping you get the best result in your personal injury claim.
At The Strickland Firm, personal injury law is all we do. When you make a claim with an insurance company, even if it’s your own insurance company, your interests and theirs conflict. Insurance companies may make it seem like they are making it quick and easy to process your claim and get you paid. Their real goal is to settle as quickly as possible and release your claim before you call a lawyer. The reason for this is simple; insurance companies settle claims for far lower amounts when the injury victim doesn’t have a lawyer. You may have a sense of your property damage and immediate medical needs, but have you considered what further treatment you may require? Do you have a handle on the full extent of your injury and the different types of money damages available in a personal injury claim?
Handling a wide range of personal injury claims in Marietta
Insurance company lawyers and claims adjusters spend all day trying to settle claims for as little as possible. You need an attorney on your side with the knowledge, skill and experience to take on the insurance company and let them know you won’t be taken advantage of, and you won’t accept less than what you are owed. The Strickland Firm handles a wide range of personal injury claims, including especially all types of motor vehicle accidents, premises liability and wrongful death.
Motor Vehicle Accidents – The insurance company’s first move is to say you were at fault in the accident and not the other driver. If this tactic is successful, it reduces the amount they have to pay or may relieve them of responsibility altogether. If that play fails, they then move to claiming the accident wasn’t very serious, and you couldn’t possibly be seriously hurt. We know all their tricks, and we know how to build a case that proves their liability and the extent of your injury. Our office is capable of handling any motor vehicle accident, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents, accidents caused by drunk driving or distracted driving, and more.
Premises Liability – Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for customers, guests, delivery persons and the general public. This duty may include making regular inspections of the property and promptly fixing a dangerous condition or warning people about the hazard. Our premises liability practice includes representing slip & fall victims in grocery stores, restaurants, retail stores, shopping malls and public property. We also have experience successfully representing victims of sexual assaults or attacks that happened in part because of insufficient security measures in apartment buildings or other spaces.
Wrongful Death – The most severe accidents and injuries require special attention and diligence to recover much-need compensation. Our firm handles brain and spinal injuries and other catastrophic injuries, as well as wrongful death claims. Georgia law spells out different procedures for wrongful death claims than other civil negligence claims, including different timelines on when to file a complaint, who can recover and what types of damages are recoverable. We devote our energies to helping families find justice, closure and compensation after a needless tragedy has taken a loved one away from them.
