Atlanta, GA Bike Accident Lawyer
If you have been injured by a negligent driver while riding a bike in Georgia, you need the best possible legal representation. Even if it is clear who was at fault, an insurance company may try to offer a settlement check for less than your case is worth.
Our attorneys handle bicycle accident cases throughout the state of Georgia and we are happy to evaluate your claim at no charge or obligation. Our experience may help you get the best possible compensation for your injury.
Highly experienced legal representation makes a big difference. We know what it takes to win favorable verdicts and large settlements. Review our case results and attorney review pages and you will see that one key to our success is the fact that we focus our client, and what makes each and every case special.
You are more than just a number to us. We work hard to educate insurance adjusters, jurors, and the courts about the unique value of your case. Let us put our legal and professional experience in handling Georgia bicycle accident cases to work for you.
Our Focus for the Last Twenty-Six Years
There are many lawyers working in many areas of law. Very few law firms in Georgia can say that their practice is dedicated to handling only injury cases. We can.
This matters when you are looking for an experienced law firm. Simply because a lawyer has had success in one other area of law, does not automatically mean they are the best fit for a personal injury case. At the Millar Law Firm, we have focused on injury law for the last twenty-six years. When considering a lawyer for your bike accident case, research and ask them about their experience. Then hire a law firm that focuses on injury law only—it will make a difference.
Personal Injury Law Firms vs. General Practice Firms
We are a law practice that specializes in injury claims and cases. We are selective in the cases we accept, and work hard to achieve top results. This has allowed our lawyers and staff to become true experts when it comes to providing the detailed legal service an injured victim needs to get the best possible result.
Unfortunately, some large law firms that advertise heavily treat clients as just another number. When you hire The Millar Law Firm, you can expect:
- Attorneys who are not overwhelmed with a large number of cases
- Lawyers and staff who will consider every detail to fully understand and prove your bike accident case
- Lawyers and staff that return calls promptly
- A dedicated team that strives to always give first class customer service
- Communication and case updates throughout the process
Even if you are just seeking legal information and advice and have not yet made the decision to hire a bicycle accident injury lawyer, we encourage you to take advantage of a free consultation, in person or by telephone, with one of our attorneys. We can answer your questions and educate you about your options; we’ll let you know what to expect from handling your case on your own versus hiring a lawyer to take on your case.
In the consultation we will review the facts, get to know you and how the accident and injury have affected you, and advise you on the best ways to proceed and options for recovering compensation for your injuries. There will be no pressure or obligation to hire our firm. If you have a case, you can decide if you’d like to hire our law firm, handle the case yourself, or keep looking for another attorney.
We Work While You Heal
When you hire us, we work for you. Not only are you hiring our expertise, we will do the hard work so that you don’t have to. We collect the evidence, gather witness statements, and put the case together for you so that you may focus on recovering from your injuries. And, we do not charge any attorneys’ fees until and unless we win a financial recovery for you.
No Win, No Cost
Unlike other law firms in this or any other area of law, we are a personal injury law firm that will not charge you any legal fees unless we recover money for you. That means you pay a legal fee only if you walk away with money.
Settlement or Judgment Amounts
Settlement and Judgment (Verdict) amounts vary from case to case. Most cases are able to be resolved through settlement negotiations. Factors such as your age, the severity of your injuries, and whether or not you will fully recover, all matter.
Personal injury attorneys for plaintiffs (injury victims) usually first attempt to negotiate with the insurance company’s representatives to come up with a suitable settlement figure. This will include compensation for medical bills (both present and future), pain and suffering, and any special needs the victim may have in the future.
If the victim suffers an injury that will not resolve in time and will permanently affect the quality of his/her life, a settlement will be larger than one for a broken arm that will heal in eight weeks. These kinds of damages are called compensatory damages.
If the at-fault driver—or other negligent party—was drunk or doing something else that is reckless, such as driving aggressively or leaves the scene of the accident (hit and run), Georgia allows you to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages can be recovered up to $250,000 in most cases, such as when the negligent party was acting with reckless disregard for others, but can be unlimited if the driver was intoxicated.
The Law Firm with Answers
Finding help after the terrifying experience of a bicycle accident can seem overwhelming. It makes no sense to hire a lawyer who handles divorce or custody cases one day, and personal injury claims the next. Like doctors, we specialize. When a lawyer handles only personal injury cases, he or she is better equipped to know how to win those claims.
The more experienced your attorney, the better. At The Millar Law Firm, our attorneys have decades of combined experience handling personal injury cases and are prepared to answer your every question as we prosecute your case to the fullest.
