Akin & Tate is a leading personal injury law firm in Georgia. For over 186 years, has provided outstanding legal representation and helped countless victims get the justice they deserve for all personal injury cases. 

Our clients come to us from all over Georgia for representation. Our attorneys have extensive experience in personal injury cases, including car, truck, SUV, and motorcycle accidents, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, workplace injuries, injury from defective products, and wrongful death accidents, to name a few examples.

Get the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of others, you may be entitled to compensation for damages and injuries you have suffered. This could include medical expenses, loss of income, mental anguish, and pain and suffering, to name a few. Our attorneys work with you to aggressively pursue and secure the maximum compensation for your personal injury case. 

Compensation from insurance companies or providers may consider future expenses such as diminished earning capacity and all medical bills for surgery that may not be incurred or needed until several years after the severe or catastrophic personal injury. Additionally, replacement or repair expenses for damaged property (car, truck, van, vehicle), lost wages, pain, suffering, and punitive damages also will be considered.

How much is your case worth?

Call us for a free consultation – you might be surprised to hear what your case is worth. We work on a contingency basis; we get paid only if you win. We take great care to understand your particular case and to give you our professional assessment – and our first case consultation is free.

We’ll gather evidence and investigate your claim.

In many cases, an insurance company has a team of professionals working against you almost from the moment an accident occurs. They may be working to obtain police reports, witness statements, photographs, camera footage, medical records, and other evidence that may establish liability. Call us immediately following an accident to discuss the next steps. Let us help guide and protect your interest during this stressful time so you can focus on rehabilitating and getting your life back to normal.

Let us negotiate with the insurance company.

Many people are uncomfortable negotiating. Our team of personal injury specialists has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. We’ll review the case, do the research, check the insurance policy details, and determine the maximum level of compensation that is available related to the specific facts involved in your particular case. If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we may prepare a complaint against the defendant in your case. The complaint states the amount of damages that we are seeking for injuries that the defendant caused.
