Voted Best Personal Injury Law Firm By Georgia Lawyers
Atlanta Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
I called Matt after several people recommended him. He was very kind and did a very good job on my son’s case. We are very thankful for the work he did. Most importantly, he was never hard to reach and answered every question we had while going through the process. Matt is the only attorney I will ever call in the future.
My husband is a cyclist that did not fair well against an SUV recently. Matt and his team took phenomenal care of us, allowing us not to stress out (too much) about the little things. Matt and his team handled everything with professionalism. We know we made the right call.
So glad I hired this firm after my rearend car accident. Matt embodies the skill set and values I was looking for. He treats every case like a mini war, and was a zealous advocate on my behalf. And he did so in the most competent and skillful manner. He listened, was empathetic and understood my legal and nonlegal problems.
My 85-year old mom was in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist. His love, thoroughness and commitment to her case helped us through this accident and her cancer treatment. She underwent successful lobectomy and chemotherapy and is doing exceptionally well. We are immensely grateful.
It was important to me to get the maximum money I could for my broken neck and arm. After getting jerked around for months by State Farm, I interviewed several firms and chose Mr. Wetherington. I’m glad I did. He forced the insurance company to pay twenty times their last offer to me.
It is an honor to share my experience with Mr. Wetherington. He was able to get answers about what happened in my son’s wreck that other attorney’s were not able to do. I am so thankful for the work that he did and he was very thorough in his explanation of why the vehicle had a “defect.”
My case did not settle. The person that hit me only had minimal policy limits. Fortunately, I had my own insurance, which should have provided more money. My insurance company, Allstate, treated me like garbage. We had to sue them and go all the way to trial, which we won.

Matt Wetherington is the attorney who is suing the booting companies. We need to do everything we can as a community to help him succeed. God bless you, Mr. Wetherington!
The best! Great people and always friendly.

Distracted Driving is Dangerous Driving
Distracted driving has become one of the primary safety threats on our roadways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 3,142 people were killed in distracted driving crashes in 2020 alone. Many thousands more innocent people suffered severe injuries. Distracted driving is negligence in Georgia. All motorists in our state have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner—including paying full attention to the road. Distracted driving comes in many forms. Some common examples are:
- Talking on the phone and driving;
- Texting while driving;
- Using a handheld device and driving;
- Talking to a passenger while driving; and
- Eating while driving.
In Georgia, a distracted driver can be held at fault for an accident. As Georgia is a fault-based auto accident liability state, it is imperative that injured victims have the evidence that they need to prove fault. All distracted driving crashes should be investigated by an Atlanta car accident lawyer. In some cases, distracted drivers will be cited for a violation by law enforcement, but even if that does not occur, you can still build a case to hold a distracted driver (and their insurer) legally responsible.

Following a serious collision with a distracted driver, you need money to pay bills, support yourself, and provide for your family.
