If you have been a victim of negligent driving it is imperative that you contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible. But how should you know which car accident lawyer to choose? The consequences of serious car accidents are physically trying and emotionally draining. You deserve an advocate who thinks of you like family.

What Should You Expect When You Choose Marc Brown Law Firm to Seek Compensation For Your Car Accident Injury?

Whenever a lawsuit is filed, there are plenty of complex issues to address. The attorneys at Marc Brown Law Firm serve as your tireless advocates and most loyal counsel. They will provide you with the best legal advice available while navigating the procedural labyrinths of the American courts.

After your lawsuit is filed, the case will move forward toward a resolution in the following stages:


This is the first thing step toward recovering compensation for your car accident injuries. At this stage, the attorneys at Marc Brown Law Firm will start the lawsuit by drafting and filing a complaint with the court on your behalf. After the complaint is filed, the defendants will respond with either an answer or a motion to dismiss.


Discovery begins shortly after the complaint is filed and the defendants have responded to it. Discovery takes the form of paper discovery and—typically after that process is completed—each side will have the opportunity to depose the other side’s witnesses. Discovery is a crucial stage of the case because it helps Marc Brown Law Firm attorneys develop evidence for your case while learning more about the other side’s case.

Dispositive Motions:

After discovery, parties may file what is known as a “Motion for Summary Judgment.” This is a legal motion that basically says, “The facts of what happened are not in dispute, and our side wins because of how the law works on these facts.”


Trials are rare, for most cases that are filed settle long before they get to trial. However, if the case does get to this point then the attorneys at Marc Brown Law Firm will have the evidence ready to tell your story to the jury.

Generally, these four steps are how cases proceed through the courts, but there are occasional exceptions.

Are Car Accident Suits Always Straightforward?

Put simply, no, lawsuits often veer from the linear path that was described above due to the procedural rules instituted by legislatures and courts. The procedural

rules that Marc Brown Law Firm attorneys navigate every day are major issues in lawsuits alleging injuries caused by negligent driving.

For example, § 9-3-33 of the Georgia Code sets forth the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits, and it requires every person filing a lawsuit alleging personal injuries–which is alleged in almost every car accident suit–to be filed within two years.  Failing to file within two years of the injury can mean the death of an injured person’s right to recover.  However, our attorneys at Marc Brown Law Firm know Georgia law allows the injured person’s spouse to bring his or her loss of consortium claim even though the underlying injury is no longer legally compensable.  

In the unfortunate event of a fatal accident, the complexities of legal proceedings increase significantly. Atlanta wrongful death claims arise when an individual dies as a result of another party’s negligence or intentional actions. These claims are unique and distinct from personal injury claims, and they involve specific procedural rules and requirements.

Another legal complexity commonly addressed by Marc Brown Law Firm attorneys is proving direct damages.  Georgia law defines direct damages as damages that were “proximately” caused by a defendant’s negligence. Damages are proximately caused by a defendant’s negligence are damages that were foreseeable results of the defendant’s negligence at the time that the defendant acted negligently to cause the injury.  Our attorneys understand how crucial it is to develop strong theories about how it was foreseeable that defendant’s negligence would cause your injuries, and they are clever and creative in arguing that foreseeability.
