Top-Rated Personal Injury Lawyers in Gainesville, GA

Unfortunately, even the most careful and well-prepared individuals cannot predict an accident. Many personal injury accidents cause physical and emotional trauma that can severely alter the victim’s life. Personal injuries can also result in extended hospital stays, physical therapy, and the need for various prescription medications. Medical costs can add up quickly and be financially debilitating for personal injury victims. If you have suffered an injury from an accident in Gainesville, Georgia, Hall County or the surrounding Northeast Georgia area, an experienced lawyer can help you hold the negligent folks accountable for what they did to you.

The Trial Team of Stewart Melvin & Frost is an Uncommon Practice. Our attorneys, Mark Alexander and Andrew Gould, have introduced north Georgia to a new and innovative approach to practicing law. Our Trial Team combines cutting-edge trial practices and technology with expertise and a proven track record of success, to provide a high level of service to each client. Additionally, their loyalty, devotion, and responsiveness to their clients are just as unique.

“We have a 24-hour rule for all client communication,” says Andrew Gould. “If a client calls, texts or emails, we respond within 24 hours, even if we are in trial. For us, it is about the Golden Rule: Treat each client as you would want your family to be treated. It is why we are always responsive, professional and prepared.”

An Uncommon Trial Team – Bringing the Best to North Georgia

One of the many things that sets the Trial Team of Stewart Melvin & Frost apart is the dedication and expertise our attorneys bring to each case. Long-time 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 jury verdict in a case involving pedestrians who were struck by a vehicle.

Mark is joined by his Stewart Melvin & Frost partner, 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 Keenan Law Firm. During his time there, Andrew conducted hundreds of cutting-edge jury focus groups, an innovative way to maximize his preparedness for trial. Those focus groups were key in securing several seven- and eight-figure results for the Keenan Law Firm’s clients. Mark and Andrew incorporate the use of focus groups into their uncommon, groundbreaking, and thorough approach to case preparation.

The Trial Team is further strengthened with the support of Stewart Melvin & Frost’s extensive legal staff and resources as one of the region’s largest law firms.

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.
