Client-Focused Litigation Counsel
Our legal team views litigation as a partnership between a lawyer and their
client. Your goals and best interests should be at the forefront of your
attorney's mind as they handle your case. You both have interest in
the result of your case and should therefore work together to achieve
the best possible outcome.
At Buckley Beal, each of our Atlanta litigation lawyers makes a personal
commitment to their client and stays by their side, fighting for the client's
best interests through each step of the legal process.
Types of litigation cases we handle:
Personal Injury: The most common type of general litigation is personal injury. When an
innocent individual is injured in an accident, the liable party should
be held responsible for the damages. Personal injury damages range from
medical bills and loss of income to emotional trauma, pain and suffering.
Motor vehicle accidents: Motor vehicle accidents are the top cause of personal injury in the nation,
and our firm can litigate skillfully for the results fair compensation
in these and all other cases. Common accidents include car accidents,
motorcycle accidents and truck accidents.
Real estate litigation: Whether you are facing a commercial lease dispute, a breach of contract,
ownership disputes, complaints of improper use of land or any other real
estate matter, our firm can help. We have the experience and knowledge
that is needed to represent your case accurately.
Trust & estate litigation: Our firm handles litigation in cases where your loved one has passed
away and there is a dispute regarding their trust or estate. We can fight
to defend your loved one's last wishes, as well as your best interests.
You can rest assured knowing our team can assist you throughout the process.
Will contests: Similar to estate litigation, our firm also handles will contests as
well. These types of cases are specifically the result of disputes over
the terms or the execution of a decedent's last will. Our attorneys
can represent your interests in the matter and reach a final solution.
Statutes of Limitation in Civil Cases
After someone has caused you harm, either financial or physical, you only
have a certain amount of time to actually create a lawsuit in pursuit
of damages. Each state has its own set of rules and regulations regarding
this time limit, which is known as a statute of limitation. If the statute
of limitation expires for your case type, you can still file a lawsuit
but the defendant has the right to ask the court to throw it out, which
will be done before any review.
In Georgia, statutes of limitations that may apply to your case are:
- 2 years for personal injury
- 2 years for financial loss due to fraud
- 1 year for libel or slander
- 4 years for damage to personal property
- 2 years for medical malpractice (possible extension to 5 years)
When you are in doubt, it is smart to speak with your litigation attorney
and ask them if your case’s statute of limitation is drawing near.
Although it is important to fully prepare your case for court and not
rush into any decisions, sometimes it is in your best interest to file
a claim quickly before the statute ends.
The Importance of Courtroom Litigation
You may be understandably hesitant to bring your case to court through
an official lawsuit. The media and entertainment industries often present
the courtroom as an intimidating place of legalese and high stakes. While
this may be true, more or less, you have nothing to fear when you have
our Atlanta litigation attorneys by your side. With our guidance, you
will see that litigation can be incredibly beneficial.
When you take your case to court, you are helping yourself by bringing
a solid conclusion to the end of a troubling matter. The importance of
litigation goes beyond your own case, though. By bringing a legal matter
to court, you are forcing the legal system to reevaluate itself and the
laws it creates. Through your individual litigation, you can help people
all around the country in similar situations.
