What Sets Us Apart from Other Personal Injury Law Firms in Atlanta?
Law firms often let their clients down by failing to conduct thorough investigations, failing to listen to their clients’ needs, and failing to obtain maximum compensation from the insurance companies who represent the person who caused your injury. Too many firms consistently seek quick settlements in order to make easy money without expending the time and energy required to achieve the best outcome for their client.
At Ross & Pines, LLC, we see personal injury representation differently. We are not looking to make quick and easy money on your case. Instead, we are looking to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries. We will not stop working for you until you are fully satisfied. By taking your case, our team of Atlanta personal injury attorneys is committing to be in it for the long haul.

How Do I Get Compensation from an Injury Claim?
The first step is seeking the counsel of the Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Ross & Pines. Every personal injury claim is different, which is why we recommend hiring representation for your claim as soon as possible. We will help you navigate through the demands of insurance companies.
Types of Personal Injury Damages
Settlements in personal injury are determined by specific type of damages that are applied to your situation. Damages is a legal term referring to the compensation an injured person receives after an accident. Generally speaking, there are three categories of damages the injured party can seek compensation for: economic, non- economic, and punitive.
Together the first two are known as compensatory damages, since their main purpose is to compensate the injury victim for a specific loss. Punitive damages on the other hand, seek to punish the negligent party for their reckless behavior. As such, punitive damages are not often awarded.
Compensatory damages are awarded the most often and include:
- Economic Damages: Economic damages are also known as special damages. These types of losses are measured by the amount of money that you have lost or will continue to lose as a result of your negligent accident.
- Non-Economic Damages: Non-economic damages are also known as general damages. These types of losses are not as tangible as special damages and usually signify what you have endured and will continue to endure as a result of your accident. Non-economic damages can include pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
Georgia Has a Statute of Limitations for Injury Cases — Don’t Wait to File a Claim!
According to the Georgia Code section 9-3-33, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is only two years. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to pursue compensation. Georgia does recognize some exceptions to this two-year rule, an attorney from our firm can let you know if any of them apply to your specific case.
A Record of Success in the Courtroom
At Ross & Pines, LLC, we believe that experience makes the difference. Every personal injury case involves hundreds of variables, which is why you need a lawyer with the experience and knowledge necessary to think quickly and to address complications as they arise. While plenty of attorneys call themselves "trial lawyers" many simply do not have the courtroom experience to validate their claim. That is not the case at our firm.
Our proven legal team has a successful track record that includes hundreds of jury trials. Our lawyers are in the courtroom so regularly that the people who work there are familiar with them and can attest to their widespread reputation throughout the Atlanta area as attorneys who fight doggedly for every single client. Our team knows how to capably deal with unexpected case complications that inevitably come up in a jury trial. They have the skill and the experience necessary to handle your case in court and to successfully advocate for the compensation you deserve.
We Prepare Every Case for Trial
Knowledge is power. Preparation is key. We begin every personal injury case with a thorough investigation, believing that it is always essential to know more than the other side.
Prior to the investigative process, we sit down with our clients for the following:
- To discuss every applicable aspect of their situation
- To review all pertinent details and facts that could influence the outcome of the case
- To examine evidence and documentation
We take this approach because we believe every case that comes to our firm should be treated as if it is heading to court. This strategy gives us a distinct edge because it allows us to always be a step ahead of the opposing side.
We believe in outworking our opposition and in being creative in our approach to every case. For this reason, we design a strategy for every case that involves more than one course of action. In this way, we are sure to have a backup plan in the event that our first plan encounters obstacles.
