If you’ve incurred a personal injury due to the fault or negligence of another person or business entity, you are entitled to file a personal injury claim for compensation of your damages. Damages typically include pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost wages. Most personal injury cases fall under tort law and include car accidents, medical malpractice and products liability. Attorney David Crawford is an experienced personal injury lawyer who has won many awards for his clients. As a matter of fact, most personal injury cases reach settlement before ever going to trial.

Although many legal matters are resolved solely through the decision of a judge or a small panel of judges, jury trials remain common for certain types of criminal and personal injury cases. This type of trial can prove beneficial for those dealing with deeply emotional cases in which prejudicial evidence may be ignored by a judge. If your current legal situation involves a jury trial, it is in your best interest to work with a lawyer who boasts a history of success with this type of legal proceeding. Feel free to get in touch with David S. Crawford, an Atlanta-based criminal defense and personal injury attorney with an impressive background in jury trials.
