How Can Your Accident Lawyers Help Me Today?

Call now and speak to a lawyer. Our phones are answered 24/7 and an injury lawyer can speak to you today to answer your questions and evaluate your case.  We believe in providing great service, communication, and satisfied clients.

We handle car, truck and motorcycle accident cases, drunk driving and road rage accidents, dog bites and animal attacks, and premises liability claims such as sexual assaults and slip and fall claims.

Your injury case is special and unique. Our legal representation begins with listening carefully to you!  Your case is unique and we seek to understand your injuries, your special needs for medical care, and the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Fast and detailed investigation.  We will investigate what happened at the accident scene.  Most Clayton County cities such as Jonesboro, College Park, Forest Park, Riverdale and others have their own police departments.  Our law firm will obtain the police or incident report, interview officers and eyewitnesses, get car and body cam video, 911 audio recordings.

Your medical needs. On the medical side, our accident attorneys will gather information about your injuries and provide solutions if you need care but do not have medical insurance.  We will obtain ambulance reports, ER and medical records and we will meet your doctors to better understand and prove your injuries to the insurance company.

Your Injury Settlement. Insurance adjusters fight hard to pay the least amount of settlement compensation.  Once you recover, we will first seek to negotiate a full and fair settlement.  We are well-known to the insurance industry as injury attorneys who will file lawsuits and try cases to verdict at the Courthouse located in Clayton County, near Jonesboro.

Strong relationships. Over the years, we have established relationships with local law enforcement agencies, accident reconstruction experts, medical offices and other professionals.  We regularly employ a support network of legal and medical professionals to put your case together.

Additionally, because our personal injury law firm has been in Clayton County for 28 years, our injury lawyers and office staff are familiar with the local city and county government and court system in ways that attorneys from distant parts of the state or Metro area may not be.

Your Personal Injury Case Is Unique and Different

At The Millar Law Firm, your injury case is special and different.  We understand that you want personal attention and that you deserve the most possible compensation in your accident claim.

Unlike the giant law firms you may see advertising on television, our lawyers handle only a small number of cases at a time.  We do this so that we can focus on giving your claim the attention and investigation it needs.

Additionally, all of our attorneys specialize full-time in personal injury law.   Our lawyers do not handle car accident cases one day and family the next.  This gives us an edge over many law firms in the Atlanta area.

Negligent companies, drivers or homeowners may owe you compensation for:

1
Past and future hospital bills, medical bills and surgery expenses
2
Lost or missed income from being unable to work
3
Loss of vehicle, or auto body shop expenses
4
Losses to enjoyment of life, affecting you and your loved ones

Is Jonesboro or Clayton County, GA a good place to have an injury case? (Yes).

Can I get a great personal injury settlement in South Atlanta?  The fact is that most injury cases in Georgia settle without the need to file a lawsuit.  However, when lawsuits are necessary, Georgia law requires that you bring your lawsuit in either the jurisdiction in which the accident occurred or in the county in which the defendant lives, does business or is incorporated.

Why should you hire our Jonesboro attorneys? If you have been injured by a Clayton County resident or a business owned or operated in Clayton County, this is a good reason to hire a law firm located in Jonesboro in Clayton County.  Recent history shows that even the threat of filing a lawsuit in Clayton County may help your case to settle fairly.

Insurance companies and defense lawyers fear Clayton County.  Why?  In recent years, Clayton County has gained a reputation as County that Insurance Companies fear.  This is because the citizens of our county understand the need to stand up for Justice in today’s society.  And, because our firm regularly files and takes cases to trial in Jonesboro and Clayton County, we believe this gives our clients an edge.

Great injury settlements come from preparation.  Cases that are carefully investigated and properly presented to the Insurance Company often settle, because the adjuster is convinced that the Plaintiff’s lawyer (your attorney) has put together a strong case.

Fair Settlement Compensation. Our Jonesboro personal injury lawyers will prepare your case as if it is going to trial before suit is even ready to be filed.  We send a message to the insurance company that if  you are not offered a fair settlement, we are prepared to file suit and continue to fight for you.

Our Local Experience is in Demand

Large national firms may have an “army of lawyers” or advertise that “bigger is better.”  In our experience this doesn’t always mean they can provide you with the best service and resolution of your claim. Huge law firms may have a large number of clients to service.  Also, you should be wary of hiring lawyers from outside the state, because they may not have much experience with the local court system and other services that can help prove your case.

For more than twenty-eight years the attorneys of the Millar Law Firm have been trying injury cases in Atlanta and Jonesboro and in all courts around the metro area: Fulton, Dekalb, Clayton, Cobb, Gwinnett, Henry, and other counties. Lawyers from outside of Georgia regularly refer to us as local counsel to handle their cases here in Georgia. In the legal profession, Local Experience rules.

A Few Examples of Atlanta and Jonesboro Injury Cases We Accept:

1

Jonesboro Car Accident Cases and Claims:

You can count on our Jonesboro Car Accident Lawyers.  The Millar Law Firm has been recovering compensation in auto and motor vehicle injury cases and claims for your Clayton County neighbors since 1993.

Few, if any, law offices have the depth of experience and knowledge that it takes to consistently win cases in Jonesboro and Clayton County, Georgia.  Our attorneys and staff are among the most experienced in the State of Georgia.

Our law firm specializes in just a few areas of law, including car accident cases.  Insurance companies know which law firms settle cheap and which ones will file lawsuits.

Because we have tried to verdict many automobile accident injury cases in Clayton County, this has helped us receive many excellent settlement results for our clients.

2

Jonesboro Truck Accident Cases and Claims:

Many personal injury law firms handle truck accident cases “once in a while.” However, our firm can truly call ourselves “truck accident lawyers.”  In just the past five years, our truck accident lawyers have handled serious semi-truck and commercial truck crash cases all over the South Metro-Atlanta area, including Atlanta, College Park, Hapeville, Jonesboro, McDonough, Riverdale, Stockbridge, Forest Park, Conley, Rex, Clayton County, Henry County, Fayette County, Macon, Bibb County, and more.

South-Atlanta is a hot bed for large truck and semi accident cases, as we have several interstate highways, I-285, I-75 and I-85 and heavy traffic.

In truck accident cases not only can the driver be at-fault, the trucking company is almost always liable, and you may also be able to sue the trucking insurance company in a direct action under O.C.G.A. 40-2-140.  Being able to name the trucking company and its insurer can give you a major advantage in a trucking or commercial vehicle accident case.

Jonesboro Motorcycle Accident Cases and Claims:

Our Jonesboro injury lawyers have handled dozens of motorcycle accident claims throughout South Atlanta, Jonesboro, and the Clayton County area.

Motorcycle accident claims are another specialty of our law firm.

Motorcycle injury cases are different, because at-fault drivers frequently do not see the biker they hit, but will then try to blame the rider for causing the collision anyway.

Drivers and their insurance companies also often try to diminish the value of motorcycle accident cases by blaming the biker for driving recklessly, even if you were obeying all rules of the road.

Careful investigation and knowing how the rules of the road apply to motorcycle accident cases are the keys to success in these claims.

Our Jonesboro, Georgia Motorcycle accident lawyers will review your case at no charge.

4

Jonesboro Drunk Driving Injury Cases and Claims:

The Millar Law Firm only accepts personal injury cases. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not defend criminal drunk drivers one day and represent their victims the next.

Criminal penalties under DUI laws are not enough to fully compensate you and your family. You and your family may be entitled to compensation above and beyond the criminal liability imposed upon drunk drivers. Such compensation is recoverable in a civil claim. Compensation can include things like payment of medical bills and money for car repairs or replacements, compensation for pain and suffering and punitive damages (to punish the drunk driver).

Additionally, we investigate all drunk driving accident claims to see whether there are any third-party negligence claims, such as a case against a bar, restaurant or store who may have sold alcohol to a noticeably intoxicated driver.

5

Jonesboro Dog Bite and Attack Cases and Claims:

Atlanta has a high number of dog bite and dog attack incidents. Over the past ten years The Millar Law Firm’s attorneys have gained a reputation as being among Atlanta’s best dog bite lawyers.

We have tried many dog bite cases (including cases of pit bull attacks) to successful verdicts, and recovered millions of dollars in settlements—often for amounts equal to the homeowner’s insurance policy limits.

In Jonesboro, as in many other Georgia cities and counties, a dog owner may be liable for carelessly managing their family dog, resulting in the dog bite or attack.  Dog bite claims may often be proven by evidence that the dog was previously vicious or was roaming loose in violation of a local ordinance when the attack happened.

6

Jonesboro Negligent Security and Sexual Assault Cases:

In Georgia, businesses such as apartment complexes, shopping centers, convenience stores and retailers may be liable if they allow criminal activity to take place on their property due to the negligence of the owner or management.  Our Clayton County premises liability lawyers have handled and proven many negligent security and assault cases, including cases involving well-known boys and girls organizations, large retailers, and shopping plazas.

Negligent security, assault and premises liability cases tend to be complex and expensive.  Our law firm has both the experience and the resources necessary to properly investigate, hire top experts, and take the discovery and depositions necessary to win these cases.

Our South-side Atlanta Office is located near downtown Jonesboro in Clayton County, Georgia.  We are just 15 minutes from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and just minutes from downtown Atlanta.   For Atlanta residents, we also have a convenient office located on Peachtree Street in the heart of Buckhead.
