The Premier Personal Injury Lawyers in Gainesville, GA

Stewart Melvin & Frost’s newest trial team is far from a traditional law practice. Attorneys Mark Alexander and Andrew Gould have introduced a new and innovative approach to North Georgia, combining leading-edge trial practices and technology with expertise and a proven track record.  Just as unique, however, is their loyalty, devotion and responsiveness to their clients.

An Uncommon Trial Team – Bringing the Best to North Georgia

Longtime partner Mark Alexander honed his trial skills as a former prosecutor in North Georgia. Mark recently secured one of the largest civil trial verdicts in Hall County history – an $11.5 million dollar jury verdict in a case involving pedestrians who were struck by a vehicle.

Mark is joined by his Stewart Melvin & Frost colleague Andrew Gould, who brings a national perspective to their legal team. Andrew has been closely involved with several high-profile personal injury cases across the country through his former association with The Kennan Law Firm.  During his time there, Andrew conducted hundreds of jury focus groups.  Mark and Andrew incorporate the use of focus groups into their uncommon, innovative and thorough approach to case preparation.

Their trial team is further strengthened with the support of Stewart Melvin & Frost’s extensive legal staff and resources of one of the region’s largest law firms.

Responsive. Professional. Prepared.

The biggest complaint by clients today is their inability to speak with or hear from their lawyer. Recognizing the importance of accessibility, Mark and Andrew have developed  a “client-first” law practice built on professionalism, responsiveness and respect.

This uncommon trial team accepts a limited number of cases to always allow focused time for the people they represent and their cases.  They listen.  They are thorough.  They prepare.  And most of all, they are available and responsive.

Simply put:  Nothing is more important than the relationships we have and the trust we earn from each of our clients and their families.

Have You Been Injured in an Accident in or around Gainesville, GA?

If you’ve been injured in a car accident or suffered injury at the hands of another, you have legal options. It’s important to follow these instructions to secure the compensation you deserve.

Don’t speak to an insurance company. Insurance companies are not your friend, and often ask questions designed to get you to say things they will use against you in the future. Get documentation of your injuries from the hospital. Keep a copy on hand.

Do not accept compensation directly without speaking to a lawyer. If you settle out of court, it’ll be harder for you to get the amount that you would otherwise be awarded.

Get legal help with your case as soon as possible. We offer a no-cost, no-obligation consultation to help cases like yours. Give us a call at 770-536-0101.

FAQs for Personal Injury Lawyers in Gainesville

How long do I have to file a personal injury case?
Generally, you are required to file a personal injury claim within two years after the date of your injury. However, there are exceptions to the general rule, such as pursuing a claim against a city, county, or municipality, where you are required to send the city, county or municipality an Ante Litem Notice prior to filing the lawsuit. It’s important that you keep extensive records of what happened as a result of the incident in order to make sure your case is properly assessed. We recommend that you secure legal counsel as soon as possible.
What damages are available in a personal injury case?
In Georgia, there are three different types of damages that you can be awarded in a personal injury case. There are special damages, also known as economic damages, which are the direct and indirect financial costs that you sustained from the accident. General damages are awarded on a non-economic basis and can be awarded on the basis of pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other factors. Punitive damages are used for punishing defendants for reckless conduct.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
Every personal injury case is different, and we want to do our best to help you get the compensation you deserve. However, we cannot give you an accurate estimate of how much your case is worth until we know every detail of your case. Not only that, the amount you’re awarded depends on several factors, many of which are outside your control. We will use our experience in helping people with cases like yours in order to help you figure out how much your case is really worth. Then, we will put all our energy into making sure that you are compensated fully and fairly.
How long will it take to settle my claim?
It depends on how you decide to proceed. It may be preferable for you to settle out of court, in which your claim could go through in a few short months. However, if you decide to take your matter to court, or if your claim involves more complex legal or factual issues, it could take a longer time before you’re able to resolve your claim.
How much does it cost to discuss my case?
We will provide a no-cost initial review of your case with an honest evaluation – from beginning to end. If your case is accepted on a contingency basis, there are no fees until the case is resolved.
