Pursuing Justice With You in Mind
Why are we so passionate about our work as car accident lawyers? Because we like people and we care deeply about helping people who are injured. Our mission is simple: our clients are not strangers to us – they become family. Most of our clients are referred to us by your Atlanta neighbors, former satisfied clients, other lawyers and even Judges who have seen our work.
Being in a car accident is a life changing event. 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.
What types of cases do we accept?
At The Millar Law Firm we are selective about the cases we accept. Our firm never accepts or files frivolous or nuisance cases with made-up or exaggerated claims. Are we a good fit for your case? Read on to find out!
Injury claims we handle
Common car accident injuries 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 settlement you need or trial result you deserve.
Worried that your case will take a long time and hope to avoid going to trial?
We will work fast to get you a fair settlement, but unlike some lawyers you may have heard about, we will never put ourselves ahead of you to make a quick legal fee.
We understand that most clients want to avoid going to trial. Car accident trials can be stressful and getting a court date can take a long time. We will work closely with you to document your injury claim and present a complete picture of your damages and losses and the value of your pain and suffering to the insurance company. Most cases are successfully settled and resolved in this way.
But, if the insurance company is being unfair and making an unreasonably low offer, or no offer at all, we will speak with you about filing suit and taking your case to trial. Our interest and passion is helping all of our clients receive fair compensation, whether through settlement or trial.
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 sudden and unexpected expenses, including:
- How to pay your hospital bill
- Recovering your lost pay
- Dealing with your car repair and diminished value
- How to pay for current and future medical treatment
- How to pay for surgical costs
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.
How we are different from other car accident lawyers in Atlanta?
Atlanta has many personal injury lawyers advertising for car accident cases on Television and Radio. You have seen the advertisements: “Had a wreck, get your check!” or “Turn your crash into cash!”
Frankly, we are embarrassed by lawyers who treat your injury merely as an opportunity to cash-in on your misery.
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.
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 only a few weeks 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 your 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 you 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, 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 limitations 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 an 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 you 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 filing a lawsuit. Insurance adjusters often make better and larger settlement offers to attorneys 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. We would be too busy to help you!
If our firm can accept your case, you won’t pay us anything unless we win.
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.
