Auto Accidents

With more than 11.1 million residents, Georgia is the eighth most populous state, yet it consistently ranks in the top five for the number of fatal road accidents, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Whether you’ve been involved in a car, motorcycle or pedestrian accident, we have the experience and resources to pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

Truck Accidents

Collisions involving commercial trucks often result in severe injuries and complex legal issues. Studies show that 86 percent of crashes that involved large trucks on Georgia’s roadways were multi-vehicle crashes. They caused 92 percent of serious injuries and 86 percent of all fatalities. What’s more, among all the traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries involving large trucks, the vast majority (76 percent) were occupants of other vehicles. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of trucking regulations and industry standards, allowing us to effectively advocate for truck accident victims.

My case started off with Mr. Farrar and when he retired, Matt Hennesey took over. They fought for my case for over 4 years and Matt stuck with it. They were really good to me and still are.

Mr. Farrar is the best. He will guide you every step of the way! I was very pleased. Hopefully, I won't have to use him again, but if so, I most definitely will.

Mr. Matt Hennesy, I have to say, is one of the best lawyers you will ever have. Mr. Hennesy went above and beyond to make sure me and my wife were taken care of. I could never be grateful enough for what he did for us. And their office staff is just as caring. Thank you so much.
