Rowen & Klonoski, P.C. Atlanta personal injury lawyers have maintained a presence in downtown Atlanta since 1978. Rowen & Klonoski's Atlanta based personal injury attorneys have been winning substantive monetary compensation for Atlanta and Georgia personal injury victims for almost three decades. In that time, R&K personal injury attorneys have earned a reputation in the Atlanta legal and insurance community for getting top dollar for each personal injury client. In 2006-2007 alone, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers have resolved or are currently fighting for the families of 5 separate wrongful death victims, numerous catastrophic injury victims, (permanent paralysis) and countless personal injury victims whose futures have been completely recast as a result of serious personal injuries. The efforts of our personal injury lawyers have produced results beyond monetary remuneration. Rowen & Klonoski injury attorneys recently obtained the largest settlement ever paid by the State of Georgia for the family of a Georgia State mental patient. Our case was featured on the front page of the Sunday Atlanta Journal Constitution on January 14, 2007. This victory by our Atlanta personal injury lawyers was reported on National Public Radio (NPR) and has led to calls for a Federal investigation into the status of all Georgia State mental institutions. (The link to the AJC is www.ajc.com. "Part 3, A Fatal Struggle - But No Punishment" features R&K client Rusty Wingo). The work our Atlanta lawyers accomplished against the State of Georgia will improve the lives of countless Georgia mental health patients.
From our offices on Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta, R&K personal injury lawyers continue to fight for injury victims of all kinds. The nature and cause of these personal injuries are as varied as our clients' human endeavors. "Personal Injury" does not just mean "auto accident", "truck accident" or "motorcycle accident", though given Atlanta residents' love affair with speed and the absolute need for a car, motorcycle, or truck just to live and work in the Atlanta metro area, our personal injury auto accident attorneys see a large contingent of auto accident victims each year. However, R&K Atlanta personal injury attorneys help all personal injury victims. Below is a sample of the types of personal injury claims our personal injury attorneys would be glad to review with you by telephone, email, or in person, at no cost to you. All personal injury attorney consultations for all types of personal injury accidents are free. If R&K decides to accept your case, there is no charge unless our personal injury lawyer obtains a verdict or settlement for you.
