In many cases, though, the physical scarring or other permanent reminders of the accident can be just as damaging on an emotional level. If you have suffered any kind of disfigurement due to injuries in an accident you did not cause, you may have a claim for additional damages.

Loss Of Limb

The loss of a limb will permanently change the victim’s life. The people who suffer these serious injuries know all too well just how difficult it is to adjust to life after the loss. While prosthetics may be available in some cases, they are expensive and even the most advanced is not the same as the real thing.

Spinal Cord Injury

Serious spinal cord injuries mean that communication with the brain is lost completely—typically forever. Victims of spinal cord injuries can also suffer from paralysis, paraplegia (paralysis of the body’s lower extremities) or quadriplegia (paralysis of the body’s limbs and torso). The spinal cord cannot heal itself as other tissues in the body can. Spinal cord injuries can also lead to a variety of long-term health issues, including numbness in the extremities, pressure sores, pneumonia and genitourinary problems.

The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm strives to manage your case with respect and sensitivity, as we understand that a spinal cord injury is life-changing and difficult to recover from both physically and emotionally. We can help you during this challenging time by providing you with the most aggressive approach to obtaining the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Among the benefits injury victims are entitled to seek are:

  • Current and future medical care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Psychological care
  • Lost wages and earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Altered mobility needs, such as wheelchairs and handicapped vehicles

Broken Bones

Depending on their severity, broken bones can change a victim’s life forever. In some cases, even a seemingly minor break can turn out to be a very serious injury and lead to a lifetime of pain and decreased usability of the injured body part.

Burn Injury

Burn injuries can be among the most painful you will ever experience, and they can often take the most time to heal. Whether it is 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree burns, the long-term damage from serious burns can affect victims for a lifetime. If you have suffered a serious first, second or third degree burn injury, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney to determine if you may have access to compensation.

The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm has the experience and understanding necessary to successfully evaluate and handle any of these types of personal injury cases, and more.

Representing Georgia Accident Injury Victims

The Briggs Law Firm specializes in representing people and the families of people injured or killed due to the carelessness and recklessness of others. Our founder, W. Winston Briggs, has tried more than 200 jury trials in his 30 year career. Mr. Briggs is a skilled trial lawyer well known for his ability and willingness to try cases. That results in higher settlements to our clients because insurance companies recognize that Mr. Briggs is a seasoned and fearless litigator who will try cases if they don’t pay the full value of the claim. If the case must be tried, there is no better firm to have on your side.

Winston and his team were the best I’ve ever dealt with. Honestly, I’ve hired many law firms in the past 10 years and no other law firm made me feel as important as Winston Briggs. To them I wasn’t just another case, I was family and for that I’m forever grateful. They got me a settlement that I deserved and they fought tooth and nails to make sure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Nicole, kept me updated with my case’s progress and anytime I had a question she was on it! I felt like I was the only client because of how personalized they made it feel. Best of the best hands down. Thank you once again for everything you did for my family and I!
EM Watson, Former Client
After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney because he seemed to have the best grasp of my situation and because, of the attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim of my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
Tom Erdmanczyk, Former Client
The case required Mr. Briggs to make numerous trips to Virginia to take on the responsible parties on their home turf. Although it required significant effort, at the end of the day, Mr. Briggs successfully forced the responsible companies to accept responsibility for my husband’s death and to pay a settlement that will take care of my son and me over the course of our lives. The event was tragic but I am very pleased that I hired Winston to represent me and my son in the case.”
Mary Ann Garrard, Former Client
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest. Without having to go through a lawsuit, Mr. Briggs convinced the hotel’s insurance company to pay more than six times the amount they had offered me to settle the claim before I hired Mr. Briggs. I hope I never need his services again but, if I do, I wouldn’t think of hiring any other attorney to represent me.
Ed Dietzel, Former Client
I am extremely pleased I hired The Briggs Law Firm and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, and particularly, one who has been injured in a bicycle accident. Once the insurance carriers learned Mr. Briggs was my lawyer, they accepted responsibility for the accident and compensated me for my injuries.
Bruce Fernald, Former Client
To those injured; I’m writing to show everyone out there that Mr.Winston Briggs is here to help you. As he listened to my story I realized that he sincerely cared and knew that, even though the injury occurred, he was able to see forward and find ways to help. Winston through the years has demonstrated that he is on the cutting edge of injury recovery. He makes a painful process turn into a more profitable and emotional reward...
Brandon Johnson, Former Client
Attorney Briggs accepted my case, within a month the defendant was served, and less than a year my case was settled. To him I am indebted for his enthusiastic, encouragement and support he and his staff offered throughout the handling of my case. Unlike any other law firm, they continue to keep me in the loop on how my case progressed. I highly recommend Winston Briggs Law Firm to anyone looking for an attorney in Atlanta who cares and have integrity in his work getting the case settled, without a doubt, he’s the Best!
