Frenquently Asked Questions

Determining How Much Your Car Accident Case Is Worth

Assessing the value of your claim requires full knowledge and investigation of the facts, the law, and your medical condition. This starts with totaling medical bills, property damage, lost pay, and taking stock of the seriousness and permanency of your injuries.

Georgia law allows an accident victim to be compensated for economic losses, including past and future expenses caused by the wreck and current and future pain. Cases with a short recovery time may not have a value as high as instances of permanent injury.

An experienced lawyer can often estimate the value of an injury case during a free consultation. But remember, this is not exact. It is not always possible to provide an accurate figure until more is known. The extent of your recovery, the amount of available insurance, and the driving history of the at-fault driver will all impact your case’s value.

At a free consultation, our attorneys can share if we think it’s necessary for you to hire a lawyer. We can also give you an idea of your case’s value. The Millar Law Firm takes pride in only accepting cases we know will provide a good experience and outcome for injured clients.

Car Accident Injuries We Handle

Types of Car Accident Injuries The Millar Law Firm Handles and How We Prove Them:

Car accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries. At The Millar Law Firm, we can and do handle any injury proven to have been caused (known as “proximate cause”) by a crash. Insurance companies are known to put up a fight to avoid paying maximum compensation, but we’re here to help.

Your Damages: How Maximum Compensation Can Be Recovered

According to Georgia law, you’re legally entitled to recover damages after a car accident. This includes current, past, and future medical bills and other legal damages, like pain and suffering. You may be entitled to reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses for your medical bills, even if health insurance paid for your care (subject to certain subrogation requirements).

Often, a case can be resolved and damages can be recovered through settlement. If, however, settlement is not possible, all of your damages are available through legal action.

To receive maximum compensation, all medical and economic evidence should be presented to an insurance adjuster in a settlement demand. If the case cannot be resolved through negotiation, you may choose to file a lawsuit.

How much compensation you are entitled to will depend on your past and future medical bills and suffering from your injury. Cases involving permanent injury or an impairment rating from a doctor will generally have a higher projected value than those where complete recovery is expected. If you believe you are permanently injured, an AMA disability rating may be needed to receive the highest level of compensation.

What Can a Person Recover After a Car Accident?

If another driver is proven to be at-fault for your accident injury, you are usually entitled to recover damages. You may be entitled to special, general, and in some instances, punitive damages. Special damages mean your financial harms, such as medical bills, final expenses (funeral), and past and future lost pay.

General damages are mental and physical in nature. They may include pain and trauma, scars, distress, or even the loss of the comfort and companionship of your spouse.

Punitive or exemplary damages are possible in certain cases, such as reckless driving, racing, or impaired driving incidents. Under Georgia’s public policy, these damages are meant as a punishment or to deter the defendant from doing something similar again.

How Much Will It Cost to Hire an Attorney to Handle Your Auto Accident Case?

Most reputable personal injury law offices provide a free initial case consultation and operate on a “contingent fee” or contingency agreement. This means you are not charged legal fees unless the firm actually recovers money for you or your family through settlement, a jury verdict, or Judgment.

Personal Injury legal fees in Georgia generally range from one-third for most settlements to forty-percent when a lawsuit must be filed. In rare instances, fees can vary. Our lawyers will evaluate your case by telephone or in-person at no charge and discuss the fee arrangement with no obligation or pressure to retain us.

How Much Legal Experience Do You Have in Handling Car Accidents?

The Millar Law Firm has been handling car accident cases for almost three decades. We specialize solely in personal injury law, which is a very specialized area of law. It requires knowing and understanding insurance legalities, how to interact and negotiate with adjusters effectively, how to discover all of the available insurance coverage information, and how to collect the damages you deserve.

We know the Atlanta area’s local laws, local legal system, and local roadways and highways – and just as importantly, we know how to combat the tactics of insurance companies and adjusters.

The Millar Law Firm has been independently rated among the best lawyers in Atlanta. Please take a look at the reviews posted to this website and Google My Business for the law firm’s Atlanta and South Atlanta office locations. There are well over 100 five-star reviews. Some of our best cases have even been referred to us by judges who have seen our work in their courtrooms.

Our firm and attorneys have also been awarded top “AV” and SuperLawyer ratings. These ratings are done by anonymous surveys of other lawyers to ensure the results are genuine.

How Do I Repair or Replace My Car After an Accident in Atlanta?

If your car is totaled in a car accident, you are entitled to recover its fair market value. This is known as the replacement cost. Unfortunately, this does not mean you’ll get what you paid for it or what you owe.

You must look at the value of cars in or near your area, versus what it’s worth in other locations. Further, the value will be affected by the mileage, overall condition, and options on the car.

The at-fault driver’s insurance company may be required to pay for your repairs or total loss. Otherwise, you may go through your own insurance company and pay a deductible. If you did not cause the accident, your insurance company would usually attempt to recover your deductible from the at-fault insurance carrier and refund it to you. In Georgia, this process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

Insurance Subrogation Claims

Most likely, your medical care was paid for by a health insurance company or workers’ compensation carrier. If so, they may try to claim a portion of your settlement, as a right to subrogation or reimbursement. However, not all medical health care plans must be reimbursed.

Knowing which plans have an enforceable lien on your settlement is key to keeping as much of your money as possible. For example, a plan that is subject to Georgia’s “made whole doctrine” may not be entitled to any of your claim. Likewise, workers’ compensation liens may also not be enforceable against your settlement either.

But, don’t count on the insurance companies to tell you whether their lien is strong. You need an experienced attorney to fight off unfair subrogation claims.
