Protecting the Rights of the Injured in Georgia

If you or a member of your family have suffered a serious injury or death, don't let yourself be intimidated by an insurance company, an employer or by a medical provider. Your health and your future are too important. Every day, severely injured people are forced into a system that is not designed to protect their rights unless they have legal representation. To get the compensation to which you are entitled by law, contact The law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C.

The law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C. has a track record of positive case results resulting in millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. We provide a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Serious Injury and Wrongful Death Claims

We handle personal injury, workers' compensation, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. We represent the families of loved ones killed by the negligence of others and people who have suffered life-changing injuries that may require months or years of medical treatment and rehabilitation to return to the lives they had before suffering their injuries. Many of our clients have suffered permanent injuries, for which they need compensation for future medical expenses, loss of earning capacity and lost enjoyment of life.

Unlike many lawyers, we don't seek the quick settlement of injury claims. In serious injury cases, reaching a quick settlement may only benefit the law firm and the insurance company, and the injured may not receive enough money to pay the medical bills, much less compensate them for everything they have lost.

At The law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C., we are willing to take your case as far as it needs to go to help you obtain fair and full compensation. We have experience obtaining justice for our clients in the Georgia and federal court systems.

Frank, I want to thank you for all your help in assisting me with my case. If it had not been for you intervening on my behalf, I do not believe I would have gotten anywhere with [my employer]. Your staff was always there for my questions and concerns. They were kind, professional and showed a genuine concern for me as an individual. You have a wonderful team! I would especially like to thank Jeanne for putting up with me with my many calls and questions and rants. She is a wonderful person. It came as no surprise to S. and I when we recently saw your name as one of "Georgia's Top Rated Lawyers" in the 2012 edition. In closing, I would like to thank you personally for everything you did handling my case. [My husband] and I feel very fortunate that you represented me.
