A Georgia Personal Injury Law Firm
Davis Adams is a law firm exclusively dedicated to representing personal injury victims in Atlanta, Columbus, and throughout Georgia. With a single-minded focus on excellence in personal injury litigation, we have recovered more than $40 million for our deserving clients. And while $40 million in verdicts and settlements validates our firm’s hard work and guiding principles, the real success stories belong to the people we represent—men, women and children who have persevered through devastating (and preventable) injuries, who have partnered with our firm to demand and obtain justice, and who have rebuilt their lives and dreams. It’s our great privilege to be part of their stories.
Award-Winning Personal Injury Trial Lawyers
Jess Davis and Chad Adams were top performers in law school and began their legal careers as litigators at one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the country. But representing Fortune 500 companies in complex lawsuits did not satisfy their need to make a difference in the lives of real people. In 2007 they surprised their friends and colleagues by doing what few lawyers ever do: they walked away from their coveted, big firm jobs to represent personal injury victims, and they never looked back. Eight years later, having recovered tens of millions of dollars for those injured in auto and truck accidents, or through medical negligence, and after winning nearly every type of honor or award presented to trial lawyers, they are no less passionate about changing the lives of the people they represent.

Trending Personal Injury Topics for April 2015
Our firm reviews more than 1000 potential personal injury cases each year, the vast majority of which are referred to us by other lawyers seeking our expertise in understanding complex injuries. The following types of cases are those that we are seeing most frequently this month, and those for which we have a track record of obtaining favorable recoveries for our clients:
Our firm’s most recent bedsore case: $1,000,000 recovery (Fulton County, Ga.)
Davis Adams is routinely called upon to handle serious bedsore cases given our significant track record of success in this area. Bedsores occur when skin (and the tissue just under the skin) is subjected to prolonged pressure. Generally, if a healthcare provider at a hospital, assisted living facility, rehabilitation center, skilled nursing facility, or nursing home follows the medical safety rules related to bedsore prevention, bedsores do not occur. Patients most at risk for bedsores are those with a medical condition that restricts their ability to move freely and/or change positions. Most bedsores occur on bony areas of the body, including the heels, ankles, hips and tailbone. When any patient develops a bedsore, a medical malpractice law firm with experience handling bedsore cases, like Davis Adams, should promptly review the medical records to determine whether legal action is appropriate.
Our firm’s most recent chiropractic stroke case: $1,000,000 recovery (Fulton County, Ga.)
Although most chiropractic care is harmless for the majority of patients, too many chiropractors perform risky “cervical manipulations” (twisting of the neck) linked to arterial dissections and strokes. Sadly, most chiropractors choose not to even disclose to their patients the risk of chiropractic stroke. We diligently analyze every detail of the chiropractic care provided, consult with treating neurologists and neurosurgeons, retain world-class chiropractic and neurological expert witnesses, and methodically prepare chiropractic stroke cases for trial in a way that maximizes the opportunity for a verdict that provides justice for our client. When any patient suffers a stroke during or soon after being treated by a chiropractor, a medical malpractice law firm with experience handling chiropractic stroke cases, like Davis Adams, should promptly review the medical records to determine whether legal action is appropriate.
Necrotizing Fasciitis: Misdiagnosis/Delayed Diagnosis
Our firm’s most recent necrotizing fasciitis case: $2,250,000 recovery (Fulton County, Ga.)
Few, if any, law firms in the United States have successfully handled more necrotizing fasciitis cases than Davis Adams in recent years. We have obtained multiple seven-figure recoveries for necrotizing fasciitis victims, and are typically handling between three and five necrotizing fasciitis lawsuits at any given time.
Necrotizing fasciitis is a progressive, rapidly spreading infection located in the deep fascia that is often missed by physicians who are not exercising proper diligence. Once the disease begins to progress, necrotizing fasciitis requires speedy and aggressive surgical intervention, often leading to amputation and sometimes death. These cases are among the most complex in all of medical malpractice litigation, and are replete with opportunities for negligent parties to avoid taking responsibility. But we know what to look for, what to avoid, and how to win (much more often than not). When any patient is diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, we respectfully submit that Davis Adams should promptly review the medical file to determine whether legal action is appropriate.
