Civil law is an area of law which seeks to compensate an individual who has been injured by another person or a business. In civil cases, it does not matter if the at-fault party intentionally harmed the victim or not: they are still liable for all related expenses including:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

When a victim of an accident such as a car accident, premises liability case, motor vehicle crash, nursing home abuse, a birth injury, class actions, legal malpractice, or workplace injury wants to sue for compensation, they often seek the help of a civil attorney or personal injury lawyer in Atlanta.


We can help you get what you are owed.

Aside from personal injury, civil law also includes wills, trusts and estates, tort law, business transactions/litigation, construction law, property law, and matters of civil rights and liberties. At
