Determining the appropriate value of a claim for personal injury is complicated. It involves evaluating the nature and extent of the injury, the current and future economic losses that are recoverable, and determining which parties are responsible for the accident and to what degree.
Since insurance companies will often seek to obtain the lowest settlement possible, it is important to have an assertive attorney on your side. With nearly 20 years of personal injury and insurance law experience, Atlanta lawyer Greg Shurman can help you recover compensation for the costs of your injuries.
Attorney with extensive experience in a broad range of traffic accidents
Attorney Shurman represents plaintiffs in all kinds of motor vehicle collisions, including:
Tens of thousands of injuries occur on Atlanta’s roadways each year. Fortunately, most of us have automobile insurance in the event such a disaster strikes. However, insurance companies aren’t always generous when it comes to paying on a claim. In fact, they have teams of adjusters, investigators and attorneys whose objective is to minimize what they pay to accident victims. This is a multi-billion dollar industry, and they take their jobs very seriously.
Insurance companies handle the claims of accident victims every day. They have come to know the tricks needed to get a case settled for less than its full value. Pressuring accident victims to settle within days of their injury and making the claims process difficult and time consuming are just a couple of their tactics. They prey on the fact that accident victims don’t know “the game” insurance companies play every day, and on the fact that injuries usually make it difficult for accident victims to fight back, especially if they have a family to feed and are unable to work.
This places accident victims at a tremendous disadvantage when it comes to getting their claim handled fairly. Without an experienced, competent attorney on their side, many accident victims simply “give up” and take what is being offered them, playing right into the hands of the insurance company.
Mr. Shurman and his staff know the games insurance companies play, and know how to effectively fight back. From 1994 - 2000, Mr. Shurman worked on the side of the insurance industry and learned first-hand the lengths it will go to minimize the money it must pay. Since then, he has been fighting insurance companies on behalf of accident victims.
Attorney Greg Shurman knows the complexity of truck accident law. Truck drivers in Georgia are under the oversight of both Georgia state laws and federal regulations. Agencies including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) come into play after a trucking accident occurs in Georgia. Because trucking companies have to adhere to numerous strict federal guidelines and have an experienced team of lawyers who defend truckers from injury cases, you need a strong attorney by your side.
Attorney Shurman uses his experience and knowledge of trucking laws and insurance regulations to help you pursue a truck accident claim. Gregory Shurman, LLC will bring in expert investigators who will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover contributing factors including driver fatigue, road conditions, weather, potential manufacturing defects and the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Motorcycle accidents cause a much higher incidence of death and injury per accident than do car accidents. Motorcyclists are still at far greater risk of death or injury than people in passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle riders face a social stigma as reckless individuals. Insurance companies play upon this to help pin blame for the accident on the rider, when it's often times the driver who is at fault, either by failing to look before turning or changing lanes, following too close and by engaging in other reckless behavior. Personal injury attorney Greg Shurman knows the dangers riders and their passengers face and has experience effectively fighting on behalf of motorcyclists.
