Sign of The law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C.

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.
