What is Full Justice?

Injured person walking into The Millar Law Firm
After an injury or the wrongful death of a family member in Jonesboro, you will have questions:  what is the value of my case?  How will I pay for medical care?  What happens if I can’t work now, or in the future?

Serious injuries can and will change your life in many ways. At-fault persons, companies and insurers will try to resist making you “whole” again.  As an accident victim, Georgia law gives you the right to receive full justice.  To our firm and dedicated staff, full justice means fighting for you to recover complete and fair compensation for your injuries, lost pay, past and future medical and surgical expenses, and current and long-term reduced quality of life.

The Mission of The Millar Law Firm:  Our mission is to return to you what you have lost when you were injured by others’ negligent and irresponsible actions.  This is why, since 1993, we have been here to help you recover the money you need to get back on your feet.

More About Our Jonesboro Practice Areas:

Car Accidents:  Our law firm regularly handles and files automobile accident claims.  We are experts in insurance law and proving the extent of injury caused in various types of collisions, including head-on crashes, rear-end collisions, failures to yield, reckless driving and more.

Intoxicated Driving Accidents:  Unfortunately, DUI accidents are a common occurrence in Jonesboro and Clayton.  Our personal injury attorneys have handled many serious cases against drunk or drugged drivers, including claims against business that served or sold alcohol to noticeably intoxicated persons, known as ‘dram shop’ cases.  Cases involving drunk or drugged drivers can lead to large punitive damages awards.

Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents:  Every trucking accident, or crash involving a van, bus, or commercial vehicle needs to be investigated in a different way than a typical car accident.  The Jonesboro and Clayton County is a major transportation hub.  Truck and business vehicle cases often have multiple causes or begin with improperly trained drivers or poorly maintained vehicles.  Maximizing value in such cases is one of our specialties.

Motorcycle Accident Cases:  These accidents can be severe or catastrophic because, unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles give little or no protection to riders.  To make matters worse, drivers in South Atlanta and their insurance companies often try to place the blame on the biker.  If you have been hurt in a motorcycle wreck anywhere in Atlanta or Clayton County, don’t wait.  You should hire a personal injury lawyer to investigate as soon as possible.

Wrongful Death Cases:  The Millar Law Firm is recognized as a premier South Atlanta wrongful death law firm.  We routinely handle wrongful death cases referred to The Firm by other attorneys and former satisfied clients.  Our wrongful death practice includes fire and burn death cases, medical malpractice, products liability, vehicle roll-over and other car and truck defects, dangerous drugs and products, construction accidents, and other types of negligence.

Negligent Security Cases:  Were you or a loved one assaulted, shot, or robbed at a local business, store or apartment complex?  Many businesses have a duty to provide a safe and crime-free space for customers and business invitees.   Our firm regularly handles cases in and around Clayton County representing victims of crime that happened due to the failure to provide proper or enough security.

We Offer Protection from Unfair Insurance Adjusters and Companies

Keeping them honest:  Adjusters may seem friendly when they speak with you, but their job is really to pay you as little as possible.  Adjusters may ask you for a recorded statement to “evaluate” your case, but they are looking for you to make a mistake that may weaken your case.  This is why we recommend that you do not give a statement to an adjuster until you have spoken with an injury attorney.

Early Settlement Offers:  If an adjuster does make you an early settlement offer, he or she will likely offer reasons why your case has little or no value – at least not what you were expecting. Very low settlement offers are common when you are not represented by an attorney.  This is because the insurance company believes you lack the skill to take the negligent person or company to court and win.

One of our main jobs, as your lawyers, is to keep the insurance company honest.  We know what cases in Jonesboro, Clayton County and South Atlanta are worth.  We know the local court system and what local Juries have awarded in cases like yours.  You need a local legal advocate on your side.

How much are your attorneys fees?
