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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Car Accident FAQs

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

If you have not been seriously injured, you should collect as much information as you can at the scene. You should collect the driver’s name, address and phone number, as well as his license plate number, name of his insurance company and policy number. You can also get the names and contact information for any witnesses. If you have a camera or cell phone, take photos of the cars and other shots of the accident scene, including car damage, skid marks, debris and bodily injuries. Later on, you should obtain the police report.

Even if you haven’t been seriously injured, you should still go to the emergency room and receive follow-up medical treatment within a few days after the accident. Although you have no cuts, scrapes, bruises or broken bones, you may have internal organ, head brain or soft tissue injuries that aren’t immediately apparent that will need to be examined and treated.

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

If your car was damaged in a collision, a hit-and-run, or in some other way. You may have to deal with your insurance company or the at-fault driver’s insurance company. You may be entitled to have your car fixed or payment for a total loss. This can be a frustrating and complex situation. Fortunately, we prepared a guide on how deal with property damage claims on your own. Click here to read our guide.

Have a Question about your Case? Take a look at our FAQs or call us today at (404) 271-3555

What information do I need for a case evaluation or consultation?

Fortunately, you don’t need anything to call or talk with us. Our attorneys are highly experienced and it is likely that we can tell you whether you have a case that we may be able to accept by telephone or meeting with us. Of course, to begin working on your case, or to fully evaluate your claim, it is likely we will need some additional information.

And whether you hire an attorney or just want to do a thorough job of documenting your injury claim, here are some things we recommend that you do after a car accident:

  • Scene photographs. If you are not seriously injured and it is safe to do so, take lots of photographs of the accident scene, of the damage to all vehicles involved. Once the at-fault vehicle leaves the scene, it may be difficult to prove the amount of damage to it. Also, take many photographs from various distances and angles of your own car, truck or motorcycle before the insurance company repairs it.
  • Injury photographs. We hope that all of our clients fully recover from their injuries. However, this also means that many of your injuries – cuts, bruises, swelling – disappear over time. Take photographs of your injuries and the time you spend at the hospital and recovering at home. Pictures of your scrapes, contusions, bruises, your cast and stitches, and time spent in the hospital and in bed are invaluable in proving your injuries later on.
  • Notify your insurance company, even if the accident was not your fault. This is because your insurance policy probably requires that you provide such notice, but also to trigger your own coverage in the event that the driver that hit you is un-insured or under-insured. It is estimated that as many as 20% of people driving in Georgia and in the United States are un-insured. And, a much larger percentage than that are under-insured, meaning they are driving around with minimal insurance limits. Failing to promptly notify your insurance company can mean losing out of recovering money after an accident.
  • Bring copies of your automobile and health insurance cards to your meeting with us. We will need this information to fully document your file. But if you are meeting with us electronically, don’t worry! You can scan and email us this information, or even take pictures with your phone’s camera and send it to us that way.
  • Police report. It is a good idea to get a copy of the police report as soon as possible. However, we understand that it is not always possible or convenient due to your injuries or work schedule. One of the first things our office will do is get the police report for your case, and we are glad to provide you a copy for your own records.

What will your firm do once you start working on my case?

First, we will reach out to the insurance companies, the police, medical providers, experts, and witnesses to start putting your case together. Your case will be assigned to at least two paralegals and two attorneys in our office. We are available to answer any questions you may have while you recover. Our office will routinely check in with you during your recovery period to see how you are doing and to make sure you are getting the best medical care possible.

What will The Millar Law Firm do to negotiate and settle my case?

Once you have completed your medical care and we have received the necessary records, reports and medical bills from your doctors and other care givers, we will send a demand letter to the insurance company. Our demand letter sets out all of the facts and details of your injury case, and asks the insurance company to pay a fair amount in settlement of your case.

Our firm will stay in close contact with you during settlement negotiations. We will never settle your case without your approval, and only after we agree upon an amount that you are satisfied with.

What happens after settlement of an injury case?

After your case has been settled, our team will also negotiate and pay your medical bills from the settlement funds. In many cases, medical bills must be paid from the amount of your settlement. However, medical providers and medical insurance companies can be tough, demanding a significant cut of your settlement recovery. We will negotiate with these companies and providers, and any money we save will go directly into your pocket.

Once the medical bills are handled, we will distribute the settlement funds, paying you and our legal fees and expenses. We will handle all of this post-settlement work, so that you do not have to.
