Gainesville Personal Injury Attorney

Accident lawyer helps Georgians collect substantial financial recoveries

Personal injuries can happen on the road, at work or even at home, often with devastating consequences. When you are hurt due to somebody else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and emotional distress. Since 1995, The Brownell Law Office in Gainesville has successfully employed an assertive, methodical approach to helping accident victims recover generous financial compensation.

Personal injury attorney William M. (Bill) Brownell, Jr. seeks to maximize recovery for clients by consulting top experts, including trauma doctors, neurologists, orthopedists and other medical specialists, economists, forensics engineers and accident reconstruction analysts. We utilize the latest technologies in trial advocacy, such as professional reenactment videos, medical illustrations and PowerPoint presentations. Drawing on more than three decades of legal practice, Mr. Brownell will marshal these resources in developing clear, compelling arguments to help jurors understand the facts of your case and the extent of your injuries.

Firm handles cases related to vehicle crashes, falls and workplace incidents

Our firm represents plaintiffs in numerous types of injury cases, such as those arising from the following:

  • Vehicle accidents — We champion the rights of Georgia residents who have been hurt in auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and bus accidents.
  • Slip and fall injuries — Mr. Brownell litigates premises liability claims when an individual suffers a serious slip and fall on property owned by someone else.
  • Workplace injuries — When negligence by someone other than an employer or co-worker is responsible for your workplace injury, you might be able to recover payment from that third party in addition to workers’ compensation benefits.

Even if you are partially responsible for your injuries, Georgia’s modified comparative negligence law gives you the opportunity to collect some measure of damages as long as the greater share of the fault is attributable to the defendant.

Speak with a lawyer immediately after you’ve suffered an injury

Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations in personal injury cases. You should consult an attorney as soon as possible after an accident, when witnesses’ recollections are fresh and evidence remains available. Taking photos of your wrecked vehicle or the area where you were injured can bolster your claim, especially if conditions change before you go to trial or your case is settled. Insurance adjusters will try to get information from you and try to settle your case for considerably less than the compensation you might be entitled to. We strongly advise not discussing your case with the other party’s insurance company before discussing it with your attorney.

You don’t pay attorneys’ fees unless you receive a financial recovery

Our firm handles personal injury claims on a contingency basis so that legal bills do not compound the financial stress that resulted from your injuries. You don’t pay us until we collect compensation for you through a judgment or settlement. Mr. Brownell has represented more than 300 personal injury clients and has recovered millions of dollars in damages for them, so you can trust that your case is in good hands.
