Happy Independence Day from Ashenden & Associates

This July 4th, we at Ashenden & Associates reflect on the history, sacrifices, and of course the people who make our nation the very best. On the 243rd Independence Day, we are reminded of a quote from one of our Founding Fathers:

“The tree of liberty, from time to time, must be replenished with the blood of patriots.”
Thomas Jefferson

Thank you to our servicemen and women who paved the way for all of us, and we hope you all enjoy a wonderful holiday.


Happy Father’s Day

My father was a big part of me becoming a lawyer because he was a lawyer. He lived until he was 92 and he practiced well into his 70s.

I saw the virtue of being a lawyer in my dad. He was a hero to me so of course he influenced me.

Happy Father’s Day from our family to yours.

Pedestrian injuries rising across state

It seems like in Atlanta every morning when I’m getting ready to come to the office, there’s some horrible story about a pedestrian being hit.

The number of pedestrians hit or killed in Georgia and throughout the country is rising at a disturbing rate. Our firm has handled, with great success, a lot of them.

Our clients are everything

I’m Tom Ashenden, I’m a trial lawyer here in Atlanta, Georgia. I like to fight for people who think they are at a disadvantage, so I can level the playing field for them.

We really care for the people we represent and it’s easy because they’re caring people.

I find if you just sit down with them, give them the time, give them the respect that they deserve, because you’re representing them things work out.

We Are Dedicated to Our Clients and Their Cases

At Ashenden & Associates, each personal injury attorney in our firm is dedicated solely to the representation of the injured or deceased person and his or her family. Ashenden & Associates has handled cases in states other than Georgia and is fully equipped to do so. A significant amount of our cases are referred from other lawyers around the country. Our clients come from satisfied former and current clients, and other attorneys.


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.

Contact a Georgia bus accident attorney today.

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.
