Compassionate Advocacy After An Accident

When the negligence of another causes you serious injuries, you are entitled to pursue compensation for your injuries and other damages. At William Long Whitesell, L.L.C., we are experienced advocates who have been helping injury victims in southern Georgia and northern Florida for nearly 20 years.

We understand Georgia’s laws and statutes of limitations on personal injury cases, which means we also understand the timelines in which paperwork needs to be handled and submitted as well as the expectations of the courts hearing these cases. Whether you have questions about the validity of your claim, you need help reviewing your case or you’re in the throws of litigation and need strong advocacy, we are here to help.

Equipped To Handle Any Injury Claim

We represent people who have been affected by a variety of accidents and injuries, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks and motorcycles
  • Boating and recreational accidents
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Premises liability/slip-and-fall accidents
  • Wrongful death
  • Work-related injuries

It’s important to know that Georgia has a statute of limitations of two years on personal injury claims. This means that within two years of suffering injuries, you may file a claim against the responsible party and hold them accountable for damages you suffered. Once this window elapses, you may no longer file a claim and seek compensation.

We can help you establish a correct timeline to better understand eligibility in your case as well as establish a timeline in which we should file a claim in the event you are eligible.

An Experienced Attorney You Can Trust

Helping people is our favorite part of practicing law. Personal injury lawyer William Long Whitesell represented insurance companies in accident cases early in his career, developing the skills and nearly 20 years of experience it takes to succeed. Now, by knowing the other side, he combines that nearly 20 years of experience with a genuine concern for clients and a strong desire to help them succeed.

We understand that a serious injury can catch you and your loved ones off guard – physically, financially and emotionally. We are here to support you throughout the duration of your case and beyond, whether that involves helping you secure the proper medical care, ensuring you can get to work after your car is totaled or getting you the fair compensation for your pain and suffering.

Consult With An Experienced Lawyer

If you have questions about your options after an accident, or if you feel an insurance company is not treating you fairly, we are prepared to assist you. We handle personal injury matters on a contingency fee basis, which means we collect a fee only if we successfully secure compensation for you.
