John Hurst’s practice focuses on plaintiff’s personal injury, including car accidents, wrongful death, trucking accidents, premises liability, and general tort law. He represents victims of accidents throughout the State of Georgia. In addition to his personal injury practice, he also represents injured workers in workers’ compensation cases.
After graduating from Emory University School of Law in 2005, he spent nearly half a decade as an insurance defense lawyer, defending insurance companies in personal injury lawsuits and workers’ compensation cases. During this time, he worked on hundreds of cases and learned the insurance industry’s defense tactics and strategies. Working as an insurance defense attorney gave John the experience and perspective to know how insurance companies evaluate and defend personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. After years on the defense side, John decided to make a switch, taking his knowledge and experience and using it to help the injured. His knowledge of the tactics used by insurance companies to deny or limit the value of your case is invaluable during negotiations, mediations, and litigation. Having this knowledge is why he’s so effective in representing the cases he accepts. In other words, Mr. Hurst knows how to fight insurance companies on their own terms.
