Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting for Atlanta
Atlanta is a big, busy metro area full of people who are in a hurry, and injuries due to things like auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls and workplace accidents can happen all too easily in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Being injured is always an annoying, unpleasant inconvenience that disrupts your life, but suffering a preventable injury that was caused by a person or business’s negligence adds an additional unpleasant layer to an already bad situation.
Knowing that the only reason you have medical bills piling up, you are unable to work and your day-to-day responsibilities are going unfulfilled because someone else was being irresponsible or inconsiderate is truly frustrating. Maybe most importantly, many people find themselves saddled with deepening debt and no feasible way to pay it off since their income may have been cut off by their injury.
In these situations, calling skilled and experienced personal injury attorneys is often the best course of action. The Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga have extensive experience representing people in situations like yours.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Represent in Atlanta
Some of the most common personal injury claims we see involve car accidents of some type, including truck accident, pedestrian and bicycle involved auto accidents and injury accidents caused by drunk drivers.
There are also many injuries caused by dangerous and improperly maintained properties. We have helped many clients injured in their rental residences – including rental home and apartments – because the landlord hasn’t safely maintained the property.
People also suffer slip and fall injuries going about their day-to-day lives, like tripping over a pothole in a retail parking lot or slipping on a wet floor in a grocery store.
We also see far too many cases where dog owners do not adequately protect others from their pets. Dogs are great companions, but if a dog is aggressive, dog owners have a duty to prevent their pet from injuring other people.
Although the physical safety of workplaces doesn’t always get as much attention as some other modern issues affecting today’s workers, unsafe work environments are still a major problem in the United States, including Atlanta. Our attorneys have represented many workers who have been injured on the job and aren’t receiving the compensation they need from their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance to help them recover physical and financially.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Fight for Atlanta Area Clients
Winning the compensation an injured party deserves takes a lot of legwork and determination. You may know what caused your injury better than anyone, but in order to get the compensation you need it requires being able to prove it in a court of law to people who are completely unfamiliar with your situation. This means gathering evidence, building a case, attempting to negotiate a settlement before court and being willing to go to trial if necessary.
- Every personal injury case is won on the back of evidence, and it takes effective investigation to gather all the necessary evidence. Some of the evidence, such as your medical records and receipts, doctor’s assessments and police reports are relatively easy to get. Getting ahold of accident photos, surveillance footage and witness testimony can sometimes be a bit more difficult. Our experienced investigators work tirelessly to gather as much information as possible so we can enter into negotiations with an airtight case that shows how someone else’s negligence led to your accident, what the resulting injuries were and what the impact will be for your future.
- Once we have a strong case, we begin negotiating with the culpable parties’ insurance companies and their attorneys. When we’re able to clearly show the insurance company that their client’s negligence led to your injury and what the expected costs are for your recovery, long-term care, lost wages and other damages, they often decide it’s better to offer a fair settlement rather than drag the case out in a court of law in front of a judge and jury. Personal injury trials can be long and expensive, and if it’s clear that you were wronged by the negligent party, they will often prefer to offer a fair settlement rather than fight a losing battle in court.
- If the insurance company and their attorneys decide they’d prefer to take your personal injury case to court, our Atlanta trial attorneys will aggressively make your case before a judge and jury. We’ll put forth compelling arguments and irrefutable evidence to show the court how you were injured, who caused the injury and the negative physical and monetary impact those injuries had, have and will continue having on your life. The end goal is to get a verdict that awards you as much compensation as possible for your injury.
