The metro Atlanta area is a fast-paced environment, and it can be difficult to find Atlanta injury lawyers who can provide the level of personal service that your case deserves. At Butler Law Firm, our most important priority is you. Ensuring that you achieve the best result possible is what drives our decisions. We accomplish this by both providing an unmatched level of personal service and by preparing every case to present to a jury. Many of our cases ultimately settle before we ever walk into a courtroom. However, the reason these cases often settle is because insurance companies know we are ready. Top Atlanta injury lawyers prepare cases for trial, not settlement. Insurance companies know the better injury lawyers from the lawyers who just settle. And when that happens, i.e. when the insurance companies see our names on the documents, it yields better outcomes for the men, women, children and families we represent. The cases that we don’t settle, we win in courts.

In Atlanta, the unfortunate truth is that serious injuries happen. The city’s heavy traffic means that we see many car accidents, and the intersection of multiple major interstates in Atlanta means that every year, we will hear about tractor-trailer accidents in and around the metro area. The city’s growing population also means that residents of Fulton, DeKalb, and Cobb County may be the victims of crime in Atlanta’s many apartment complexes, restaurants, or other commercial establishments. As 5 star rated Atlanta injury lawyers, we help the victims of these misfortunes.
You Only Have One Chance for Justice
With a devastating injury, you only get one chance to seek justice for your loss. Having the right personal injury attorney can make the difference between winning and losing your case. You want a law firm that isn’t all talk—you want a firm that has handled and won other cases just like yours. No two cases are identical because no two humans are identical. But, experience, hard work, and practice does make a real difference. And we have that. Our Atlanta injury lawyers understand that you only have once chance; we promise we will do everything we can to make that one chance count. For example, in 2015 our firm won a jury verdict of $150,000,000 ($150 million dollars) for the wrongful death of a young boy.

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer News Updates
Around 1:30am on March 16, a woman was killed while walking on I-75. The unidentified woman was going across the interstate when she was hit by a pickup truck. The driver immediately swerved to avoid her, but didn’t see the woman in time. According to officers, it appears that a number of other vehicles struck the woman as well, but no one stopped. That part of the highway was very dark and investigators think the other vehicles might not have known what they hit. Police are still investigating the case and say it’s too early to know if there will be any charges against the truck driver.
A search is underway to find witnesses who may have seen recent shootings around the Atlanta area. The Fulton County District Attorney is looking for witnesses who saw a shooting around midnight on March the 13th between Moreland Avenue and Arkwright Place. This first shooting involved four SWAT members who fired at a father and son duo – Kenneth Gilbert Sr. and Jr. The second shooting involved a supposed car thief and member of Mayer Keisha Bottims’ security. The third shooting took place on I-285 S between Washington Road and Camp Creek Parkway where a car thief was chased down, shot, and is now paralyzed. The district attorney is urging the public to speak out if they saw something; they are no longer simply taking the stories of officers, but holding law enforcement accountable. The District Attorney’s office and the GBI have purchased billboards around the city asking civilians to call the number provided if they did witness any of these tragic events.
On May 15, a woman was walking around Cobb County Park when a stranger assaulted her. The woman said the man aggressively grabbed her neck and tried to kiss her. She was able to fight him off, ran away, and immediately called 911. While the woman was waiting for police to show up, she saw the man staring at the children in the nearby playground. However, this time, he had on a different colored shirt. She boldly approached him and asked if he was the same guy. Once he confirmed, she immediately started taking pictures of him and gave it to Cobb County Police to put online. Police are asking the local community to be on the lookout.
Police are searching for the leader of a sex-trafficking ring in Carroll County. 50-year-old Jeffery Earl Cook and a partner frequently brought underage girls from a home on Lovvorn Mill Road to a room at a Carrollton motel to get them ready for customers. The men had “pimped” and solicited business by exploiting teenage girls for years before the group was busted. Cook’s partner and three others have been arrested and the four teenagers are safe. Police are still looking for Cook who they believe is hiding in the area.
Last week, Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed the “Heart Beat Bill” into law. Governor Kemp signed a bill that makes abortion illegal once a fetal heart beat is detected. The bill has some exemptions including an exemption for mothers who are at-risk or have serious health problems. A heart beat can be detected around 6 weeks. The bill has recently caused an outrage and even caught the attention of Hollywood celebrities and several film industries. Over the years, Georgia has become a popular location to film movies and TV shows. Three film production companies are boycotting filming in Georgia until the bill is reversed.
On the morning of May 6th, an Atlanta mother of two was on her way to work when a loose wheel flew off a northbound pick-up truck and killed her. Julieanna Shedrawy didn’t know what hit her when a pick-up truck carrying a trailer lost a wheel that flew into the air, and slammed into the roof and windshield of her car. Shedrawy was pronounced dead upon impact. The National Transportation Safety Board says that loose wheels cause about 3 crashes every year on U.S. highways. For just .65 cents, both the NTSB and 11 Alive News recommend drivers, especially truck and bus drivers, buy “Wheel Check”. Wheel Check is a small piece of plastic that slides over each lug nut after they’re been tightened. This ensures that tires are securely fastened and it is easy to detect when nuts are loose.
Atlanta Public Schools fight to have a say in a local tax bill. Fulton County and Atlanta Public Schools (APS) have to pay a hefty portion of property tax each year. So when the Fulton County Development Authority gives out tax abatements for economic development projects, they are unable to pay for improvements to its school systems and local communities. As it stands, school districts with the current process have no way to determine if they can fund construction projects or how it is going to affect their budget ahead of time. Every dollar that is abated to development projects is a dollar that is taken away from students and teachers in the Fulton County school system.
Fulton County leaders propose bus rapid transit on I-285. Fulton County recently submitted a proposal to bring bus rapid transit across the county on GA 400 and South Fulton Parkway. The $1.3 billion referendum set for next year is to expand the current public transportation system which currently does not have bus rapid transit. The technology behind this fast public transportation system will allow busses to have the ability to change traffic lights and avoid traffic without the dedicated bus lanes. The vote is set to take place in 2020.
In April, a swarm of protestors with Southerners on New Ground (SONG) asked the County to close South Fulton Municipal Region Jail in Union City. The group claimed the jail was in a state of emergency and said the women there are suffering. The jail has a reputation of overcrowding, black mold, little to no phone access for prisoners, and harsh policies that prevent inmates from going outdoors. County Commissioner, Robb Pitts told the organization that he would meet with them later this month and gave them his commitment to help improve the prison. However, there are many obstacles to overcome. Each year the County Commissioners gives the sheriff a budget for maintaining the jail and the sheriff has the authority to use the money as he sees best.
