Leveling the playing field for our clients

We’re here to level the playing field for the victims of these cases. These victims tend to be victims because the insurance companies don’t recognize what the law recognizes.

That’s when we have to go to court. That’s when we have to file suit and protect those rights of those individuals who are truly the David’s going after the Goliath’s.

Representing clients hurt in bus accidents

200 people die every year in bus crashes and many more are injured.

At Ashenden & Associates we have sued MARTA many times. MARTA is jus one example because there are transportation companies that take people on vacation, church groups, and I’ve represented people in all those areas.

The law is in its wisdom says they have an extraordinary duty of due care that understandably creates a standard for them that they have to abide by to make their mode of transportation safer.

So when we go to court for one of those victims who has been in a bus and suffered a life-threatening injury, the court is going to recognize and the jury is going to recognize.

Georgia’s Hands-Free law nears year anniversary

Texting and driving is so unacceptable. I think what the bill, the law, the change in the law has done is really increase our awareness of how important it is not to do that.

Do everything you can to just keep that phone away from you because it truly is a horrible distraction.

Insurance companies are not always on your side

It’s definitely important for people to realize that insurance companies can sometimes work against you. They have a responsibility to their insured, they don’t have a responsibility to you.

Their insured may be the person who hit you and therefore you’re the adverse party. They will make you offers that they think will make you go away and you won’t fight it because it looks like good money because it has a lot of zeros.

A lot of time those are not their top offer and there’s money left on the table. What we’re able to do is work with these insurance companies, present evidence showing why a case is what it’s worth

The standard lay person does not handle insurance claims on a day-to-day basis and that’s why you need a lawyer. These things can be complicated and that’s what we’re here for.

Video Blog: Understanding traumatic brain injuries

I have been handling traumatic brain injury cases ever since I started doing personal injury work. So I studied it and I understand the science and medicine.

When somebody has a cognitive deficit that means they are suffering from short-term memory loss, blurry vision, forgetting where they’re driving.

The number one hurdle is the plaintiff looks fine. My job is to show the jury how the plaintiff’s life has changed because of the traumatic head injury.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Result in Medical Expenses & More

Over five million Americans live with life-long debilitating brain injuries requiring intensive medical care which creates many expenses. For these people, the money recovered through their personal injury lawsuits can mean the difference between life and death. An Atlanta brain injury attorney can help you recover damages for your injuries, including:

  • Past and continuing medical expenses
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Lost Wages
  • Punitive damages

Why you need an attorney after a car wreck

Here at Ashenden & Associates, we handle cases against drunk drivers, drivers who were texting when they got into a collision, people who were on drugs when they got into collisions.

This conduct is unacceptable and it hurts people. It’s a risk to everyone on the streets of Atlanta and the streets of Georgia. I think it’s important to do the work that we do to make sure the people who are doing something wrong pay for it.

You should never be hurt by someone else’s negligence and it fall on you. Somebody has to be held responsible and I like that aspect of my job.

Speak to an attorney

Insurance companies may propose a settlement early on, in order to close the claim quickly and without further expense on their part. Never accept an offer like this without first receiving professional legal consultation.

Remember, the insurance companies are not on your side. It’s nothing personal, just business – they don’t make their money by doling out huge payments all over the place. Personal injury attorneys understand your rights and the true value of your damages, so you can meet the insurance provider/s on a level playing field and get what’s owed to you.

The law firm of Ashenden & Associates serves the Atlanta area with professional legal services, especially in the field of personal injury. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Don’t be a distracted driver

The victim of a distracted driving case is feeling like the victim of a drunk driving case. It’s the same insult. It’s the same trauma.

Just think of how that person now faces life-threatening injuries, life-altering injuries is feeling knowing they’re that way because somebody was violating the law and looking at their phone and that’s what led to their current physical condition.

It’s a powerful part of the damages that we get to argue in-front of a jury and the juries recognize it.
