As the preeminent law practice in Athens, GA, Burnside Law Firm has significant experience with helping people throughout our region get the justice they deserve. Our talented and skilled Georgia attorneys are effective negotiators and vigorous litigators who serve our clients with integrity and excellence. We use our education, knowledge, skills and experience to serve clients with needs in the following areas.

Car Accidents
With the proximity of the University of Georgia, booming industry, tourism and being a popular retirement location, Athens, GA, and Clarke County are steadily growing. With a growing population comes an increased risk of car accidents. Some of the most severe injuries are incurred through car accidents, leaving victims with huge medical bills. The Burnside Law Firm can diligently defend your rights and pursue your right to compensation after a car accident.

Medical Malpractice
Georgia residents have every right to expect superior-level care from their healthcare providers, and that is the case most of the time. But when accidents or negligence cause innocent patients to suffer injury or death, the responsible parties must be held accountable. The Burnside Law Firm works hard to protect our clients and win them just and fair compensation when negligent medical practitioners have harmed them.

Nursing Home
Nursing homes often struggle to provide adequate care because of inadequate numbers of trained staff and other cost-cutting measures. As a result, family members must closely watch their loved ones for any signs of abuse or neglect. If you believe a loved one is suffering abuse or neglect in an Athens nursing home, Burnside Law can investigate and pursue your claim against the responsible parties for adequate compensation.

Product Liability
Proving a product liability claim can be difficult, and companies have many lawyers on retainer to protect their interests. Burnside Law is your experienced team that can investigate and gather evidence to prove a product was defective and dangerous to the public, especially if you were injured through its proper use. We handle these types of claims for residents of Athens and the surrounding communities.

Serious Injury
Serious injuries are classified separately from other types of injury due to their permanently disabling nature. Anyone can suffer a serious injury at any time, whether at work, home or play. These types of injuries will require monumental changes in a family’s life to perpetually care for the victim, and possibly struggle to replace income if they were the breadwinner. Burnside Law attorneys can pursue your right to compensation to help offset these and other resulting expenses.

Truck Accidents
American commerce rides on the trucking industry. Large trucks are everywhere, carrying virtually everything to consumers. These heavy vehicles are held to stricter standards because of the inherent risk of accidents and the likelihood of catastrophic injuries. In a truck accident, assessing liability can become complicated, involving the driver, truck owner and other parties. Burnside Law can sort through the legal morass to defend your rights and pursue compensation if you were injured in a large truck accident.

Vehicle Accidents
The state of Georgia is a busy hub of transportation that encompasses almost 60,000 square miles and is crisscrossed by around 124,000 miles of paved roads and over 5,000 miles of commercial rail. Every type of vehicle traverses Georgia roadways daily, and Athens is a popular destination. When you are involved in a vehicle accident, The Burnside Law Firm is ready to fight for your rights and investigate your claim for compensation.

Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ Compensation laws in Georgia are designed to protect workers who become injured on the job. However, workers’ comp insurance companies will always work to protect their bottom line and fight claims. You need an experienced team of attorneys from Burnside Law to fight for your right to fair and just compensation when you become injured on the job.

After my car accident they helped me every step of the way! They were up front and answered any questions I had! They negotiated the insurance and got a higher settlement than was offered! I would definitely use them again!

Terri Hawkins

My husband and I had an awesome experience in dealing with Attorney Mark Williamson and the entire staff at the Burnside Law Firm. We received exceptional service and was very pleased with the outcome. Mr. Williamson and his colleagues were very helpful and assisted us from the beginning to the end. We highly recommend the Burnside Law Firm.

Damien Lanclos

I have known Thomas Burnside and his family for years as I grew up with Thomas. I have recently had the pleasure of meeting his partner, Mark Williamson. There is an aphorism that I have found to be universally true, "A company is known by its people." Thomas, Mark and their staff are great people. I have leaned on Thomas for legal advice not related to his expertise and he has referred me to others who have taken good care of my personal and business interests.

Debbie Walker

In November 2017, I was in a car accident and I decided to seek out legal assistance. I chose to go with Burnside Law Firm, LLP because of their five star rating. My inital consultation was with attorney, Mr. Garon Muller. I knew immediately that I wanted Mr. Muller to take my case. His professionalism and expertise in personal injury made my decision easy. Mr. Muller maintained his professionalism throughout my case. He kept me updated on a regular basis via telephone or email. He was always available to me when I call. I did not have to wait 24 hours to get a call back from him. I would greatly recommend Mr. Muller and the Burnside Law Firm, LLP.

Rick Estep

Burnside Law Firm is who you want to represent you. Mr. Muller came to our house for a free consultation without hesitation. He guided us and overcame every obstacle we encountered. He secured the maximum insurance limits for us and we couldn't be more happy. If you are injured, DO NOT attempt to recoup compensation without the expertise of a trusted, skilled and able law firm to be your voice. THANK YOU MR. MULLER!!!

Jennifer Malonjao

Burnside Law Firm LLP is one of the best law firms in Augusta. Before starting my lawsuit I checked out a few places and Burnside felt to be the best. They did not let me down. Mr. Mark Williamson was my attorney and throughout my entire case he was extremely easy to talk to and I felt like I was treated like a person, and not just a check. He worked very hard on my case and I feel as if I could not have received the settlement I did with anyone else. He made sure my husband and I knew everything that was going on throughout the entire process. I will always recommend Burnside to anyone that needs legal assistance. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming from your first step in the door on day one to your last step out the door when your case is complete. I am beyond satisfied.
