The following are examples of the types of cases we handle:
People Injured In Auto Accidents
If you have been injured in a car accident, you may hear from the insurance company of the other driver. A friendly claims adjuster may ask you to make a recorded statement about the accident. He or she may ask you to sign a permission form to obtain your medical records.
Doing either of these things could do serious harm to your personal injury case. Before you say anything or sign anything, call the law firm of Salata Law, LLP, at 678-942-6937 for a free initial consultation. Whether you hire us to represent you or not, we will take the time to explain your rights and answer your questions. We represent individuals and families in Alpharetta, Roswell and other communities in north Fulton County.
Attorney J Thomas Salata is a former claims investigator who used to work in the insurance industry. He understands how insurance companies think and what they will do to diminish the value of your claim.
Why You Need To Be Wary Of Insurance Companies
The insurance company of the other driver does not have your best interests at heart. Its only concern is minimizing the amount it has to pay you. By providing a recorded statement, you are giving the insurance company evidence it can use to challenge you claim. Your words can be twisted around to mean things you never intended. By signing over your medical records, you are giving the insurance company ammunition it can use to claim your injuries were pre-existing.
A serious auto accident can result in chronic pain that can reduce your enjoyment of life and affect your ability to work. To ensure you receive full compensation, seek a lawyer’s help as soon as possible.
Compensating Victims Of Truck Accidents
Tractor-trailers are massive vehicles that can cause devastating injuries or death in the hands of a careless operator. In the aftermath of a serious accident, however, trucking companies rarely admit that they did anything wrong. Instead, they will try to shift blame to the other driver.
At the law firm of Salata Law, LLP, our lawyers are here to hold negligent drivers and their insurance companies financially accountable for the harm they cause. The civil justice system can provide a strong motivation to truckers to put safety first. Call 770-408-7004 for a free initial consultation. We represent injured people as well as family members of fatal accident victims in Alpharetta, Roswell and other communities in north Fulton County.

Holding Truck Drivers And Their Employers Accountable
The trucking industry is subject to strict state and federal regulations to keep our roads as safe as possible. Prompt investigation of a serious accident may uncover evidence that a driver or a trucking company violated one or more of these safety regulations.
Here are a few examples of safety violations that can lead to truck accidents:
- Driving too long without taking a rest break
- Driving an overweight truck
- Failing to properly secure a load
- Unsafe passing
- Improper maintenance
- Hiring an qualified driver
- Drug use
If a trucking company or driver violated safety violations, our lawyers will uncover it to build the strongest possible case of negligence against the trucking company.
Were You Injured On Someone Else’s Property?
Owners of stores, hotels, apartment complexes and even private homes are responsible for correcting unsafe conditions on their property so guests are not injured. If you are injured due to dangerous conditions that the property owner knew about or should have known about, you have the right to seek compensation for medical bills and other losses.
The lawyers at Salata Law, represent people in Alpharetta, Roswell and other communities in north Fulton County who are injured due to unsafe property conditions. Call 770-408-7004 for a free initial consultation.
Why You Need A Lawyer’s Help
Just because you were injured on someone else’s property does not mean the property owner’s insurance company will pay. Insurance companies often refuse to pay personal injury claims regardless of merit. To recover compensation, you will need to prove that the property owner was negligent. That can be hard to do without a lawyer’s help.
As your lawyers, we can build a strong case of negligence against the property owner and prepare the case for trial. Insurance companies often are not willing to pay a reasonable settlement unless they know that you are represented by an attorney who is prepared to try the case.
This area of law is known as premises liability. We represent people in all types of premises liability cases, including:
- Assaults and rapes in hotels or apartment complexes caused by negligent security
- Slip-and-fall injuries caused by spilled substances or other unsafe conditions
- Falls on uneven or cracked sidewalks
- Falls on unsafe stairs
