About the Firm
Ragland Law Firm, LLC is a preeminent Atlanta law firm of civil trial attorneys who specialize in handling personal injury, wrongful death, insurance disputes and other complex litigation. We are not a general practice law firm trying to do a host of things adequately. Instead, Ragland Law Firm, LLC is a specialized civil litigation law firm focused upon a limited number of areas in which we have developed considerable expertise and can provide superior legal services. The law firm has earned a state-wide reputation for providing vigorous legal representation of its clients with the highest of ethical and professional standards.Georgia Lawyers Focused on Car & Trucking Accidents, Drunk Driving,
Medical Malpractice & Defective Products Which Lead to
Serious Injury or Wrongful Death

These cases can arise from a variety of tragic circumstances such as automobile accidents, collisions involving 18-wheeler trucks or other commercial vehicles, crashes caused by drunk drivers, boating accidents, the negligent or illegal service of alcohol to an underaged driver, negligently prepared or contaminated foods leading to food poisoning, medical malpractice by a physician or hospital, unsafe prescription drugs or medical devices, defective machines or toys, construction accidents, and inadequate security which fails to prevent a criminal assault. It is these and similar types of cases which we handle every day throughout all areas of Georgia.

Despite the advance of technology and society, it is tragic that these situations still cause thousands of innocent people to be killed or suffer crippling injuries every year. When death or catastrophic injury occurs, the victims need serious, high quality legal representation from experienced trial attorneys who have particular expertise in that area of the law, the resources and determination necessary to battle large corporations and other powerful entities, and the skills and courage required to take a case to trial. Rest assured, that type of legal representation is exactly what you will find at Ragland Law Firm, LLC.
Violation of Civil Rights and Other Intentional Tort Cases
We also regularly handle other types of individual tort cases which involve great personal harm even though no actual bodily injury has been sustained. Negligent, criminal and other wrongful conduct can cause financial loss, severe emotional distress, psychological harm, loss of liberty, violation of civil rights, injury to reputation and other non-physical injury. When this occurs, we are prepared to pursue civil claims for invasion of privacy, false arrest, malicious prosecution, assault and battery, defamation, sexual harassment and/or intentional infliction of emotional distress. Some examples of these type cases would include:
- video voyeurism through the use of hidden cameras in bathrooms, locker rooms, changing areas, hotel rooms, or similar areas where persons would have an expectation of privacy
- apprehension and wrongful accusations of shoplifting by a retailer’s store security
- malicious prosecution of individuals wrongfully accused of crimes they did not commit
- improper advances or sexual misconduct by a doctor, dentist, psychologist, counselor or other professional
- sexual molestation of a child or teenager by a day care worker, teacher, minister, coach, club leader, babysitter, caregiver or other adult
- constant sexual harassment at work or having one’s job or promotion made dependent upon performing sexual favors
- unlawful disclosure of privileged medical information
- unauthorized use or publication of someone’s photograph, work product, or graphic creations.
Some of our clients ask us to get involved when they are having problems with one of their insurance companies. Attorneys at Ragland Law Firm, LLC handle cases involving the denial of a claim for disability benefits against disability insurers, as well as cases involving the wrongful denial of a claim for death benefits under a life insurance policy. We can also assert bad faith claims against automobile, homeowners, CGL or other liability carriers when they unjustifiably refuse to settle a liability claim or wrongfully deny coverage to their policyholder. We also handle cases involving the denial or mishandling of a claim for property damages submitted by the insured under their homeowners, fire, commercial or other property insurance policy.
The attorneys at Ragland Law Firm, LLC are also available to handle a variety of business or commercial disputes on behalf of individuals or companies. We are ready to get involved if you or your business has suffered a monetary loss or incurred damage to your financial or business interests due to the fraud, breach of contract, or unfair business practices of another individual or company.Atlanta Lawyers Preparing Cases for Trial and Handling Appeals
We are, first and foremost, courtroom lawyers. Attorneys at Ragland Law Firm, LLC have track records of achieving superior results because they have the skills, resources and willingness to file lawsuits, prepare cases for trial, conduct hearings and jury trials in the courtroom, and handle any appeals before the Georgia Court of Appeals or Georgia Supreme Court. Most of our cases settle before they go to trial and most of these settlements are achieved because the case has been well prepared and the defendants are concerned about what verdict might await them at trial. Our formula for success is thorough preparation which either leads to a good settlement or gives us the best chance for a favorable outcome at trial. Visit our Case Results page to learn more about some of the particular cases successfully handled by attorneys at Ragland Law Firm, LLC.Selecting Fewer Cases Yields Superior Results
We are very selective in the cases we choose to accept. We cannot represent everyone who contacts us and the law firm declines many of the potential cases submitted for review. The attorneys at Ragland Law Firm, LLC undertake only those cases where (i) they have trust in the prospective client and faith that their motives are proper; (ii) after some review, they conclude that the case is meritorious based upon the available evidence and the law of the jurisdiction which will apply, and (iii) they see that the individual or business has suffered significant damages. Of course, there are many other factors which the firm takes into consideration when deciding whether to accept or decline a case. We accept fewer cases so that we can give each case the time, attention and resources needed to properly prepare and try that case, if necessary. It is not our goal to obtain some recovery in many cases. Rather, we strive to achieve superior results in the select few cases we undertake.A Reliance on Reputation – Not Advertisements
We are not a high volume law firm. We do no advertising. Instead, we rely solely upon our reputation and the quality of our work to generate referrals to our firm. All of our clients are referred to us by other attorneys, our former clients, or other people aware of our reputation for outstanding legal work. Every case undertaken by Ragland Law Firm, LLC is handled directly by an attorney. Our cases are not given to paralegals or other staff who perform most of the work with minimal involvement by the lawyer. Our highly trained paralegals provide valuable assistance, but they never assume primary responsibility over a case.Civil Trial Attorneys Handling Accident and Injury Lawsuits Throughout Georgia
