An Even Match Against the Insurance Companies

When injured in an accident, you may need to go up against the insurance companies in court in order to obtain the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies have virtually endless resources and will be sure to retain skilled defense on their side. If so, it is vital that you retain an attorney with significant trial experience who will aggressively pursue your rights. Both Tony and Bryan have tried dozens of cases throughout Georgia and are no strangers to the courtroom. If you have been injured in an accident of any kind, contact Kalka & Baer LLC for experienced and capable representation.

Free Consultation

Your initial consultation with our firm is free of charge, so don't hesitate to contact us today and schedule an appointment. You could speak with an attorney directly and discuss what options are available to fight for a full recovery of your damages. Medical bills for personal injuries can be extremely high and unaffordable; lost wages can cause severe financial hardship for you and your family. If your injury was caused by someone else, you should not pay out of pocket for these losses.

We have four convenient office locations throughout Georgia and we are also happy to travel to you!
