Wrongful Death
“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.
Mary Ann Garrarde, Atlanta, GA
“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.
Cyclist Tom Erdmanczyk, Roswell, GA
I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
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.
Ed Dietzel, Atlanta, GA
I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
