How Do You Get Justice And Compensation After An Injury?
If you or a family member has been injured in an accident, your familiar routines may have been disrupted due to many new concerns: doctor’s appointments, insurance issues and worries about returning to work and paying the bills. How will you get compensation to cover your losses from the accident when the insurance company seems to have all the power?
I am attorney Steven Harrell, and I can protect your right to collect compensation from the negligent party’s insurance company. For over 36 years, I’ve devoted a large part of my practice to helping clients win compensation that enables them to persevere through hardship, recover financially and redress the injustice of their losses. From my office in Perry, I represent Georgia injury victims and their families.
You Are Not To Blame For The Injury
Every day, people are seriously injured through no fault of their own. If you have been harmed or have lost a loved one because someone else was careless, reckless or negligent, you have a right to receive financial compensation for your losses. This often includes damages for past, current and future lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, you may be entitled to additional compensation for funeral and burial expenses, the personal loss of a family member and more.
I represent clients in a wide range of injury claims, including:
- Vehicle accidents
- Tractor-trailer accidents, including food service, garbage and utility trucks, buses, etc.
- Negligent security, slip-and-falls and other premises liability claims
- Wrongful death
- Negligent construction
- Property damage liability suits
- Bicycle and motorcycle accidents
Mediation Can Get Swifter, Less Stressful Results
Mediation is a less costly way to resolve a lawsuit than a trial, often resulting in a higher net settlement to the injured party, and gets results far more quickly. It is typically less stressful than a trial as well. Mediation offers you, the plaintiff, some degree of control and predictability over the outcome. At mediation, you are an active participant and have real power in effecting an acceptable outcome.
Work With A Georgia-Registered Mediator
I have negotiated countless settlements with insurance companies using mediation. As a Georgia-registered neutral in mediation and arbitration with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution, I can represent you before a mediator, affording you the benefit of a lawyer’s counsel in all decisions, or act as the neutral third party.
My skills as a trial attorney apply equally well in mediation. When mediation does not yield a resolution, however, I am always prepared to take the case to trial.

Be prepared to bring these things to our first meeting:

The sooner I get these documents, the sooner I can start on your case.
