Athens-Clarke County, Georgia Injury Lawyer
With one of the most diverse, progressive and fun-loving populations in North Georgia, Athens is aptly named the "Classic City." Athens-Clarke County, the name of the unified city-county is most associated with the University of Georgia, home of the Bulldogs.
Athens was granted a charter in 1785, and construction on the University of Georgia started in 1801. The town of Athens, which was officially founded in 1806, grew up around it. Athens-Clarke County has a rich history, a creative, artistic atmosphere and a thriving music scene which has produced some of the most recognized bands in the world, including REM and the B52s.
Situated in the northeastern part of the state, Athens-Clarke County is located at the junction of US Highways 29, 78, 129 and 441. Georgia Highway 316 is also a major thoroughfare which runs from Gwinnett County in metro-Atlanta to Athens. These intersecting highways are the source of many traffic accidents involving cars and tractor trailers. Athens is not served by any interstates, and most of these egress highways are two-lane roads. These thoroughfares can be dangerous because of the mix of congestion, inexperienced student drivers and, unfortunately, drunk drivers.
Charles Scholle has represented many Athens injury victims who have been the victims of drunk drivers, tractor trailers collisions and motorcycle accidents. In fact, Athens is his hometown. His office is only forty-five minutes from Athens, near the intersection of 316 and Sugarloaf Parkway. He has family members in Athens and makes many trips there during a typical month. Charles recently represented a driver and passenger who were seriously injured by a drunk driver when they were hit head-on on 441 following a UGA football game. Since 1995, he has helped people who have suffered a loss in the family or a serious injury get the financial compensation to which they are legally entitled.
