Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer
Mitchell & Shapiro LLP is known in Atlanta and throughout Georgia as a firm that is at the forefront of personal injury law. Since our firm was founded in 1997, we have provided honest legal advice and personalized representation to each of our injured clients.
Our firm is led by attorneys Richard Mitchell and Ken Shapiro. Richard and Ken worked for many years at large Atlanta law firms, but now use the knowledge they gained at these firms to the benefit of our firm’s clients. Their more than 60 combined years of legal experience give our clients the edge they need when seeking compensation following an accident or other injury-causing event.
Medical malpractice cases are nearly impossible to win without a lawyer who understands how to interpret medical evidence and work with expert witnesses. We have this understanding, and have helped numerous clients receive compensation when they were harmed by surgical errors, misdiagnosis, substandard care, nursing home abuse or any other type of medical malpractice.
We handle all types of auto accidents, including cars, motorcycles, bike and pedestrian accidents. However, we are especially well versed in matters involving trucks, tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles. These cases carry an added layer of complexity, because of the tangle of federal and state regulations and insurance rules that govern the operation of these vehicles. Often, the driver, the trucking company and the insurance carrier can all be held responsible for the driver’s negligence.
Catastrophic Accidents And Injuries
Cases involving life-altering injuries can become exceedingly complicated very quickly. Extensive medical documentation is necessary, and lengthy depositions and investigations — not to mention delay tactics by the other side — can cause these cases to last for months and even years. With our experience, we can streamline this process and push the case forward towards a favorable result for our clients. And, no matter how long it takes, we are in the fight for our clients’ rights for the duration.
Few attorneys have the skills and legal knowledge needed to successfully pursue claims associated with aviation accidents. At Mitchell & Shapiro LLP, our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience handling aviation accident claims. This lengthy involvement in the field of injury law allows us to represent clients in aviation-related cases ranging from commercial airplane crashes to injuries caused in an airport jetway.
Our Atlanta personal injury attorneys also have experience in many other areas of personal injury law, including construction accidents, product liability, premises liability and workplace injuries. No matter what caused your injury, we have the experience, proven trial strategies and history of results that you need to protect your rights.
