Car accidents are by far the most common type of case we handle. You may think a car or auto accident claim is simple enough. No matter how small or severe your car accident injuries, it can be hard to get a fair and reasonable settlement from insurance adjusters.
Insurance companies spend a lot of time aggressively lowering settlement offers on car accident claims because these are the majority of their claims. Their interest is in their bottom line, not helping you. That is why you need someone like us protecting your interests and making sure they do not take advantage of you.

About Atlanta, GA
With a 2013 population of approximately 448,000 and an average age of 33.1 years, this lively city is also known for its heavy commuter traffic and complex road systems.
Atlanta is the largest city in the state and if you look at a map of our highways, it really is the "heart" of Georgia. Nearly all of Georgia's major highways run through or around Atlanta, including I-20, I-85, I-75, I-285, US 78, SR 316, SR 200, SR 154/166/Langford Parkway, GA 400, and so many more. Atlanta is a primary transit hub for many national companies, and a popular pass-through to many of Georgia's other major cities, which may be why the roads in the city see so many crashes.
Even with public transit options like MARTA in place, Atlanta is largely a driving city. Commuters are constantly coming in from the metro areas such as Lawrenceville, Duluth, Cummings, Marietta, Suwanee, Decatur, and beyond. With a bustling city like Atlanta, we see our fair share of tourists and business conventions, adding to the congestion downtown as people try to reach unfamiliar destinations. If you have ever driven through downtown Atlanta during rush hour, you know the dangers of our everyday traffic.

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers at Brauns Law Help You File Your Injury Claim
It is normal to not want to call a lawyer because you do not want to sue somebody or have to go to court. Most people are also afraid they will have to pay huge attorney fees. But that is not how it works. Bringing a claim is different from filing a lawsuit. We build your claim’s evidence like we are going to file a lawsuit, but then negotiate with the insurance company to try to settle your case without having to do so. We are able to settle most of our cases before trial, but are not afraid to take a case to trial when we know a better settlement is warranted.
