Experienced Savannah Personal Injury Law Firm
Accidents happen every day. Innocent people in Georgia end up with injuries that cause them pain, emotional distress, time away from work, and a wide range of other damages. A severe injury can completely turn your world upside down, and even more, moderate damages can cause real hardship in your everyday life.
Personal injury is the body of law that allows accident victims to recover financial compensation for their pain, suffering, and other losses related to the injury.
Under Georgia law, accident victims are entitled to compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence (i.e. careless, unreasonable, or unlawful behavior).
Common examples of accidents include:
- Auto accidents
- Commercial trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian injuries
- Hit and run
- Slip and fall
- Injuries caused by defective products or dangerous medications
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Burn injuries
- Dangerous property conditions
- Workplace injuries
- Dog bites & animal attacks
- Any other injury caused by another party’s negligence
Demonstrating liability in these cases isn’t always easy. The defendants on the other side are often represented by insurance companies, which fight hard to pay as little as possible in any given accident claim. They will attempt to reduce your compensation as much as they can, and they might even deny your claim altogether.
Lowball payouts and wrongful denials are common practice for insurance companies. You need an experienced and aggressive Savannah personal injury law firm to step in and hold them accountable.
At The Law Offices of B. Clarke Nash, P.C., we will relentlessly pursue every single penny available to you under Georgia law. With years of experience under our belts, we know how to maximize the value of our clients’ claims and vigorously insist that the insurers toe the line.
You can count on us to go after the money you deserve.

Will I Have to Go to Court?
Most injury cases ultimately involve an insurance company or some other large corporation. These organizations are sophisticated, and they understand their obligations under the law. Nevertheless, they give innocent victims a hard time until an experienced and aggressive law firm gets involved — then they know their plaintiff means business.
Our injury lawyers have a spectacular record of success in procuring favorable out-of-court settlements for our clients.
In most cases, an out-of-court settlement is very much to your advantage. It gets you your money faster and spares you the considerable time, stress, and expense of a formal court proceeding. There are many ways to approach an out-of-court settlement, and our firm’s unique litigation strategies have proven effective.
Once the defendants know that you have our law firm fighting for you, they are more likely to consider a settlement in your favor.
If, however, the other side refuses a fair settlement offer, we are always ready and willing to take each case all the way to court, where we will make a passionate and compelling case for the judge and jury.
In either scenario, you can count on us to do the heavy lifting. We’ll work hard to make sure your lawsuit requires the least possible amount of your time or worry. The burden belongs on our shoulders.
