Accident and Injury Case Help With You in Mind

Our mission is simple: our clients are not strangers to us – you become family. Most of our car accident and personal injury clients are referred to us by your Atlanta neighbors, former satisfied clients, other lawyers and even Judges who have seen our work.

Money doesn’t mean happiness will be restored after a car accident – but you need it to get back on your feet. We help with that and keep you informed and involved every step of the way toward your recovery. And, some of our clients have received quite a lot of money at the end of their case.

Most automobile accident injuries come with serious financial consequences – we can help!

Car Accidents never come at a convenient time. We can help and advise you about how to deal with these common questions and issues:

  • How do I pay my hospital and medical bills after a crash?
  • Can I recover past and future lost pay?
  • What should I do to get my car repaired and recover diminished value?
  • If I don’t have medical insurance, how do I keep paying for medical care?
  • I need surgery or physical therapy… how can I pay for that?

Our attorneys have over 75 years combined personal injury experience. Most members of our support staff have over 20 years legal experience, each. Very few Georgia law firms have our depth of experience. Chances are, no matter what you come up against, we have seen it before and can give you immediate expert advice.

We have built our firm and our careers around the core values of personal service, continuous improvement, commitment and professionalism. As a valued client we welcome you to come in at any time for a meeting with your lawyer – try that at a high-volume television or billboard law firm. Call or contact us, and you will immediately see we are serious about our core values.

FAQ's

What types of personal injury cases do you accept?

At The Millar Law Firm we are selective about the case we accept. Our firm never accepts or files frivolous or nuisance cases with made-up or exaggerated claims. Common car accident cases we handle include serious back and neck injuries, torn and herniated disc cases, broken bones, torn knees and shoulders, head and brain trauma and injuries requiring physical therapy or surgery. We work closely with you and carefully document your medical condition and care to ensure that your injuries are proven, your medical bills are paid, and that you receive the full and fair settlement or verdict you deserve.

Will my case settle quickly, or go to trial?

We will work fast to get you a fair settlement but unlike some lawyers you may have hear about, we will never put ourselves ahead of you to make a quick legal fee.  Most cases do settle without a lawsuit being filed.  We will work together to decide whether a lawsuit should be filed or a settlement accepted.

We don’t let the insurance company get away with making you a low-ball or unfair offer. Our interest and passion is helping all of our clients receive fair compensation, whether through settlement or trial.

How much is my case worth?

We are asked this question a lot. The value of your case is determined by how serious your injuries are and, to some degree, what the at-fault driver did to harm you. As you may imagine, a sprain or strain is worth far less than a devastating injury caused by a drunk driver.

Each case is different. Once we learn the details of what happened, how serious your injuries are and what your condition may be like after you are medically stable, we can start to determine the value of your injury claim.

Call us with any questions you have about how personal injury cases work or are valued. You will be able to speak to one of our friendly Atlanta Georgia personal injury attorneys right away – at no charge.

How long does a car accident injury case take to settle?

Usually the best time to settle a car accident injury case is when you have completed your medical care. At that point, your injury attorney will evaluate your case and make a demand for payment to the insurance company.

How much is demanded usually depends on the amount of your medical bills or the severity of your injury. The settlement negotiation process usually takes place after you have completed your medical treatment and all of the records and reports have been received from your doctors.

Who is responsible to pay for my medical care in a car accident case?

In the end, the insurance company for the driver who caused your injury usually pays for your past and future medical bills and expenses. While your are treating, your own health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare most often pays the bills. Those insurers are then repaid at the conclusion of your case.

If you have no medical insurance and are not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare, many medical providers will give you medical care on a lien basis, meaning that the doctor, chiropractor or therapist is paid when your case settles or resolves. In Georgia, clients and attorneys can sign letters of protection, indicating, on your behalf, that our office will repay the medical bills when the case settles or a verdict is paid.

Will the insurance company offer a fair settlement?

The answer to this question may depend on a number of factors, but also largely upon what kind of injury you have, the quality and ability of your personal injury attorney, and the amount of insurance available.

In Georgia, an injury victim is entitled to be compensated for the harms and losses suffered. This usually means your past and future medical expenses, your lost pay, and your pain and suffering – including future limitation caused by your injury.

“Fair” may also depend on your expectations and the conduct of the at-fault driver. If you are seeking a huge amount of money in “revenge” for a small negligent act, you are likely to be disappointed (and you would not be a good fit for our law firm). The law does not usually entitle you to punish and at fault driver unless he or she did something outrageous, such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, hit and run, or reckless driving.

Our firm will discuss with your what other injury victims have received for similar injuries and under similar circumstances. If the insurance company is making you an offer below that range, we will discuss your options of making a counter-offer and continuing to negotiate, or filling a lawsuit. Insurance adjusters often make better and larger settlement offers to attorney and law firms that have a reputation for filing suit against low-ball offers.

When deciding which law firm to hire, be sure to ask how many trials the firm has had recently. Most strong personal injury firms go to trial several times each year.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer with your law firm?

There is no upfront cost to hire our law firm, and no charge to consult with us. We will discuss the facts and potential value of your case when we first discuss your case, by telephone or in person. We do not accept every case we are consulted about and you would not want us to do so as we would be too busy to help you if we did.

If our law firm can and does accept your case, you won’t pay us anything unless we recover money in your injury case.

How do I hire a personal injury lawyer with your law firm?

Once we have spoken about your case, either by telephone or in person, and we have decided we are a good fit to work together, you will sign our new client forms. We can do this electronically through email, or in person. It is very easy and convenient. Once we receive your signed forms, we will immediately start working on your case so that you can focus on feeling better.

Frequently Asked Questions

Car Accident FAQs

What should I do if I am in an accident with another automobile, motorcycle or truck?

We recommend that, if possible, you collect certain information at the scene. Obtain all you can from the at-fault driver, such as name address and home and cellular phone numbers.  Get the license plate number and the driver’s automobile or commercial truck insurance policy information and number. Get the contact information of all witnesses. Take cell phone pictures of the vehicles and the scene.

If you have been hurt at all, seek medical care at the ER or your primary doctor immediately or shortly following the accident, no more than a few days.  Taking each of these steps will help ensure that if you do need or choose to hire a car accident attorney, your case is off to the best possible start.  If you have any questions, call the Atlanta car and truck accident lawyers of The Millar Law Firm, our telephone consultations are free.  770-400-0000 (770-“4 Million”).

What should I do if my car was damaged or totaled, but I was not hurt?

When your car is damaged by an at-fault negligent driver, in a hit-and-run, or in another type of incident, even if you are not hurt you must report the accident (damage) to your insurance company, or you risk losing your insurance coverage.  The driver who caused the collision’s insurance policy should cover your damage, but if that driver is not insured, under your policy, if you have collision coverage, you may be entitled to repairs, diminished value or total loss.  Review your insurance policy to see if you have collision coverage.
