Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer

If you’re dealing with the aftermath of an accident someone else caused, they should pay for the harm they caused. Contact Steinger, Greene & Feiner today to get the legal representation you deserve. An Atlanta personal injury lawyer will fight tooth and nail to get you justice and maximum compensation.

Personal Injury Cases We Represent in Atlanta

As a personal injury law firm, we represent all kinds of personal injury cases, including:

Auto Accidents

Whether you were involved in a fender bender or a multi-car collision, our car accident lawyers will secure compensation to cover the cost of medical bills, car repairs, and more.

Bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents can have lifelong effects, such as the loss of a limb or permanent disfigurement. Our team will hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Birth Injuries

One unfortunate mistake can turn a joyous occasion into a tragedy. Get justice for your child with help from our personal injury lawyers.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accident victims often suffer more severe injuries than car accident victims because motorcycles offer less protection. If you were injured while riding your motorcycle, we’ll help you get justice.

Truck Accidents

18-wheelers and other large trucks pose safety risks to other drivers. One wrong move can cause major property damage and life-changing injuries. Protect yourself against greedy trucking companies by contacting us for legal representation.

Boating Accidents

If you were swimming or operating a boat and another boat collided with you, the operator is legally obligated to pay for any injuries or damages you sustained as a result. We’ll investigate the accident to establish negligence and hold them accountable.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries range from mild to severe and can require long-term or even lifelong rehabilitative care—which is costly. We’ll secure the compensation you need to get the best 

Defective Products

Manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers must make sure their products are safe for use or consumption. If a product is defective and harms you in some way, we’ll help prove they were negligent.

Dog Bites

If someone else’s dog bit you, you shouldn’t have to pay for the damages. We’ll gather evidence to prove the dog owner’s liability so you can get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals must care for their patients, but sometimes they make mistakes that cause harm. Our team will prove that they acted negligently and get the money you need to recover financially.

Drug Injuries

We all know prescription and over-the-counter drugs have side effects, but some side effects end up being more serious than what the manufacturer communicated. If you experience unexpected complications after taking a medication, we’ll help you fight back against the pharmaceutical company.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians often sustain severe and even life-threatening injuries when struck by a vehicle or motorcycle. Our lawyers will fight for your rights and maximum compensation while you focus on recovering.

Slips and Fall Accidents

Property owners have a responsibility to keep residents and guests safe by maintaining their properties. If an icy patch of sidewalk or loose stair railing causes you to slip and fall, the property owner is liable for your injuries. We’ll build a case against them to secure maximum compensation.

Social Security Disability

If you’re disabled, you qualify for Social Security benefits. Unfortunately, these benefits are denied to many people. Our attorneys will fight for your right to these benefits so you get the financial support you need.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can have lifelong ramifications that cost thousands of dollars in medical treatments, rehabilitative care, and mobility equipment. Whoever caused the accident that resulted in your spinal cord injury should pay for the damages, not you. We’ll prove their negligence so you’re not paying out-of-pocket.

Workers’ Compensation

If you were injured in the workplace due to a hazard your employer knew or should have known about, you have a right to certain benefits. If your employer denies those benefits, our lawyers will help you get the money you deserve.

Wrongful Death

Some accidents tragically result in the death of a loved one. If you lose a family member due to someone else’s actions, they must be held accountable. While no amount of money will change what happened, our compassionate lawyers will get justice for your loved one and compensation to ease your financial burden.

“I had the best experience with my attorney. He was always available to answer any questions I had. He is kind and thoughtful, and has the best personality, even if a question I had was silly. He always reassured me everything was going to be alright, and it was. I will be referring him and your law firm to anyone who needs an excellent personal injury attorney.” – Denise Morales

“From beginning to end, my attorney was so attentive and on top of every detail of the process. It isn’t something that you can do on your own, and Steinger, Greene, and Feiner is a great option.

Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

Compensation Available

If you were injured or lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intent to harm, you’re entitled to financial compensation. You can seek compensation from the responsible party for two types of damages: economic and non-economic. Here’s what these terms mean, along with some examples.


Economic damages are calculable financial losses such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Prescription medication
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Property damage
  • Medical devices or equipment


Non-economic damages are incalculable losses that may or may not have a financial impact. Examples include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Psychological distress
  • Emotional trauma

Factors That Influence Settlement Amounts

Settlement amounts can increase or decrease depending on a few factors.


Liability must be determined before any compensation can be awarded. In states that have comparative negligence laws—which award compensation to partially at-fault plaintiffs—compensation can be split between the plaintiff and the defendant. The degree of fault each party shares determines how much compensation they receive.

Extent of Damages

More severe injuries and more extensive property damage typically warrant a higher payout. That’s because the victim needs more money to cover the cost of their accident-related losses.

Willingness to Settle

The first settlement offer is often lower than what the plaintiff deserves. We advise our clients not to accept the first offer for this very reason. Clients who are willing to wait for a higher settlement typically get one.

FAQs About Atlanta Personal Injury Law

1. How much does it cost to hire you as my personal injury lawyer?

Our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay any legal fees unless we win your case. This process ensures your needs are prioritized above everything else. If you have questions about what legal fees to anticipate, give us a call. We’d be happy to discuss this matter with you.

2. What are damages?

Damages are any kind of physical or financial harm or financial loss you experience because of someone else’s actions. In Georgia, personal injury victims can seek restitution for economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.

  • Economic Damages: Also called special damages, economic damages are quantifiable losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and car repairs.
  • Non-Economic Damages: Also called general damages, non-economic damages are intangible losses such as pain and suffering, scarring, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are only awarded if the wrongdoer’s actions were particularly egregious. These damages do not award financial compensation to the victim but punish the wrongdoer for their actions and deter them from taking similar actions in the future. Punitive damages might be awarded in cases involving a drunk driver or hit-and-run driver.

3. How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia?

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is two years from the date of the incident. There are some exceptions to this rule.

  • If the victim is a minor, the statute of limitations doesn’t begin until they turn 18. However, if the child’s parents file a lawsuit on their behalf, the two-year limit still applies.
  • If the at-fault driver gets a traffic ticket, the statute of limitations doesn’t begin until the ticket has been paid.

4. How long will my case take?

Every personal injury case is different and, therefore, takes a different amount of time to resolve. We resolve some cases within weeks while others take months or even years to resolve. Factors like liability and the extent of damage impact a case’s timeline.

5. What does “negligence” mean in a personal injury case?

Negligence is the failure to exercise proper care which results in the harm of another person. The plaintiff in a personal injury case must prove the defendant acted negligently to recover damages. These four criteria must be met to establish negligence:

  • Duty: The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care.
  • Breach: The defendant breached this duty of care.
  • Causation: The breach caused the plaintiff’s injuries or property damage.
  • Damages: The plaintiff suffered some form of identifiable harm—whether physical, psychological, or financial—because of their losses.

6. How much is my personal injury lawsuit worth?

The amount your case is worth depends on factors like liability,  severity of injuries, and the settlement process. Speak with your lawyer to discuss how much compensation you need to cover all your expenses. They will calculate your losses to pursue the maximum amount of compensation.

7. Will my personal injury case go to trial?

You and your lawyer should take every measure possible to settle your case outside of court. If you and the defendant can’t reach a satisfactory settlement, your lawyer will take your case to trial to fight for maximum compensation.

8. Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

While you can represent yourself in a personal injury case, we highly discourage it. Personal injury lawyers have the skills, experience, and resources it takes to win a case and get the compensation you need. Don’t risk getting less than you deserve or losing out on compensation entirely. Hire a personal injury lawyer at Steinger, Greene & Feiner to achieve the outcome you want.
