Customer Reviews


  •         "Would highly recommend! Very knowledgable and helpful in guiding me in my pursuit. Took the time to explain my situation from the legal stand point. He gave me important information that I would need to file my claim when other attorneys I had spoke with did not. The best and most convenient part of our consultation is that I spoke with him the first time I called with no delays."

Car Accident Attorney

        Have you been hurt in an automobile or truck accident and it is not your fault? What do you do?

Car Accident
  1. Determine if anyone else is hurt and call 911 for police and ambulance.
  2. Do not move vehicles unless instructed to do so by the police. Moving the vehicles makes it more difficult to determine who was at fault or caused the accident. Take pictures on your cell phone.
  3. Cooperate with police and emergency responders. The police will ask for driver’s license and insurance information of all drivers.
  4. If you are hurt in a major collision, allow the EMT’s to transfer you to the ER for examination and treatment. This could be important to your case later to document the seriousness of your injuries. Many individuals do not realize how serious they have been hurt until later. Insurance usually places a higher value on cases where the injured person is taken from the accident scene by ambulance. If that is not practical then obtain an examination and treatment as soon as possible.
  5. Do not discuss your case with the at-fault party’s insurance adjuster. The adjuster works for the insurance company and is motivated to pay as little as possible on your claim. Insurance adjusters often use what you initially tell them about the accident to build a case to deny liability or minimize what they ultimately have to pay. Let Pardue Law handle all communications with the insurance company to protect your interests.

How much is my car accident injury worth?

Car Accident Victim

Every case is unique. Since 1986 Pardue Law has collected for our clients over 1,000 personal injury recoveries which ranged from a few thousand dollars to over 3 million dollars. Recoveries for Pardue Law clients depend on the negligence of the at-fault party, seriousness of injuries, amount of medical bills, lost wages, and available insurance or assets of the at-fault driver. Pardue Law maximizes net recoveries (the amount our clients receive at the conclusion of the case). In many cases to increase the net recovery for a client we negotiate with medical providers and health insurance companies, including Tricare, and Medicare, to reduce required medical reimbursements from settlements. This frees up more funds for our clients. Although we cannot guarantee a recovery, our job is to maximize recoveries, whereas an insurance adjuster’s job is to minimize your cash settlement. All of our car accident cases are on a contingency basis (if we do obtain a recovery for you, then you owe us nothing).


How long does it take to finish my car accident case?

Settlement Cash

Time to finish a case varies. Some cases with simple non serious injuries are resolved in a few months (4-6 months). However, serious injury cases requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation may take several years. Lawsuits in Georgia, if the case is not settled before then, have to be filed within two years of the date of injury. Lawsuits often add one to three years to the process. Pardue Law resolves approximately 95% of the car accident cases without a lawsuit being filed. When an insurance company is unreasonable on the issue of who is at fault or how much has to be paid, after discussions with our clients we then file a lawsuit. A typical case involves waiting until all major medical treatment is completed or the physicians state the client has reached “maximum medical improvement.” Thereafter, it normally takes approximately 30 days for the medical providers to forward their bills and records to Pardue Law. Routine cases are settled in about 8 weeks later after we send all of the required documentation to the insurance company. No cases are settled without client approval.
