Skilled Legal Help After A Serious Personal Injury
When someone is injured or killed because of negligence, there are two key elements that the victim must prove. The first is liability, meaning that an entity or individual is legally responsible. The second part is damages, meaning the physical, financial and personal harm you have suffered.
Standing between you and your compensation is the insurance company and their defense lawyers. The The Houghton Law Firm, LLC is your voice and your advocate in a legal process that can feel stacked against you. We have recovered many millions of dollars for personal injury and wrongful death in cases across Georgia.

Maximizing Your Personal Injury Compensation
The Houghton Law Firm, LLC is not a settlement mill. We handle a limited number of cases at a time so that we can help our clients get full value for their claims. It takes time to fully document the extent of injury and the impact on your life. We work to recover damages for medical bills and future medical care, lost wages and future earnings and property damage. We also pursue compensation for your pain and suffering, for loss of enjoyment of life and (when applicable) punitive damages.
When John Houghton takes your case, he considers you a friend for life. He gives his personal cellphone number to clients to be accessible throughout the legal process and stays in touch with all his clients long after the case is concluded. It’s important that your lawyer has the skill to secure your rightful compensation. You also want to feel comfortable that the attorney cares about your ordeal and has your best interests at heart.
