Columbus Personal Injury Lawyers

Put 40+ Years of Combined Experience in Your Corner

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer who does the kind of work we do. No one chooses to suffer a loss that leaves his or her family searching for justice. Nevertheless, such situations occur. When they do, turn to Crawford & Brown Law Firm LLP. We help people and businesses in Columbus and throughout the surrounding areas who have been harmed because of others' careless conduct. We regularly represent individuals injured due to car crashes and the negligence of motor vehicle operators.

Our success is due to taking cases to court. To confront a powerful business or insurance company in any civil litigation case, you need an advocate and counselor who knows how to build a strong case and bring it to a successful conclusion, while still providing the personal attention you deserve.

Our Columbus personal injury lawyers can provide this level of representation. Because of our firm's success in pursuing cases in the courtroom, we are often able to obtain settlements for clients well in advance of trial or even before filing suit.

We Are a Comprehensive Personal Injury Practice

Our lawyers are known throughout Georgia and the southeastern United States for their experience in a wide array of personal injury cases.

We can assist you with:

  • Motor vehicle crashes — Our lawyers have extensive experience with car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle collisions, uninsured/underinsured motorist claims, and more.
  • Auto defects and other product liability cases — From faulty car parts to defective water heaters, we thoroughly investigate defective products and can help you obtain a recovery.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect — If an elderly relative suffered from bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration or other negligence, we can pursue legal claims for your family.
  • Fatal accidents — We have helped many families that have lost loved ones, and we will guide you through your wrongful death case with compassion.

We are available to answer all your personal injury questions, such as, "What is my case worth?" and "Do I need to get a lawyer involved?"

Answering Your Georgia Personal Injury Questions:

What's the Difference Between a Claim and a Lawsuit? A personal injury claim is typically filed against an insurance company following an accident. This process will be negotiated through a claims adjuster and can sometimes be handled without an attorney. However, in the case of serious injury or monetary damage, having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side can be the key to ensuring you receive proper compensation for your injuries. If your personal injury claim is denied by the insurance company, or they fail to provide you with the compensation that you've asked for, you may pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

What is Georgia's statute of limitations for personal injury cases? If you fail to file a lawsuit within 2 years of your accident, you give up your right to pursue compensation, according to the Georgia Statute of Limitations found in Georgia Code § 9-3-33.

What is the average settlement for personal injury lawsuits? It's impossible to estimate how much you may be eligible to receive for your injury without knowing the details of your accident, as there are several variables that may affect the monetary outcome. If you would like to discuss your situation with us contact our injury lawyers to schedule a free consultation!

Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me? No! No one can force you to accept a settlement that is being offered (whether by your own insurance company or someone else's). It's very important that you discuss your case with a professional before accepting any settlements, because without having all the facts about your recovery or any permanent damage done, it's impossible to know whether or not you are receiving a fair offer. Don't risk settling without discussing your case with an injury attorney first.

How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer? At Crawford & Brown, we work with each of our clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that we don't get paid unless we successfully resolve your case. Contact us today for more information!

Verdicts & Settlements:

  • $75,000 Insurance Claim
    Our firm provided the insurance company for an at-fault driver with a policy limits demand within days of being retained by our client. The insurance company tendered its policy limits promptly in response, which provided our client the funds needed to help move forward with recovery.
  • $3,000,000 Nursing Home Abuse
    in combined settlements for mistreatment of patients in assisted care homes.
  • $650,000 Physical trauma
    Our client sustained physical trauma that was relatively unnoticeable, but the client was diagnosed with chronic regional pain syndrome as a result of the trauma. We ushered testimony to help prove our client’s claims, which led to a settlement of $650,000 with the insurance company in advance of trial.
  • $575,000 Wrongful Death
    We represented the parents of an underage child who was served alcoholic beverages and then died in a motor vehicle accident. Our firm pursued claims under a Georgia statute that provides a right of action to a parent whose child is furnished alcohol without the parent’s consent, which led to a settlement with the insurance companies for the persons who served the minor child.
  • $250,000 Car Accident
    We represented a hard-working heating-and-air contractor who suffered a herniated disc in a low-impact collision of less than 5 miles per hour. The defense claimed that our client’s morbid obesity was the cause of his problems, but our firm did not give in and instead tracked down witnesses to help prove the wreck caused the injuries. Our lawyers tracked down a pivotal scene-witness who had moved to Okinawa, Japan from Columbus, Georgia since the time of the wreck.
  • $122,630 Insurance Claim
    Jury verdict and payment in full. The insurance company had offered less than 10 percent of this amount in advance of trial, and our lawyers refused to accept less than a fair amount to resolve our client’s claims. The jury’s verdict was paid in full which allowed our client to receive funds helpful to moving forward with life.
  • $125,000 Car Accident
    We obtained the entire liability insurance coverage and under insured motorist coverage for our client injured in a car wreck in Phenix City, Alabama.
