Ten Convincing Reasons Why You Should Consider Our McDonough DUI Injury Lawyer

We never defend drunk drivers.

In our three decades of law practice we have not defended even one drunk driver. Our services are and always have been focused on helping the victims who have been harmed – we’ve never helped bad actors escape punishment. 

We don’t settle for less.

 Insurance companies will try hard to get you to settle for less than your claim is worth. If you’re working on your own, or have an inexperienced lawyer, attorneys for the defense will try to overwhelm you. They will attempt to convince you that your claim has no hope of winning and push you to settle. We know better than that, and, more importantly, the insurance lawyers know that we know better.  

We work to provide superior customer service.

The Millar Law Firm is not a huge one. As such we work to give our clients the same customer service we would provide to our own families. We work on clear and concise communications. Your calls and questions matter to us. This mean we work to reduce reducing telephone hold times, calling our clients back quickly, and supplying you with frequent case updates. We know there are lots of law firms to choose from. If you choose us to represent you we aim to make you happy you chose us. 

We collect essential evidence.

Proving that the at-fault driver was drunk can be difficult. Fortunately, we know where and how to find the necessary evidence to demonstrate the facts. We have access to all the important reports and documentation that will help you win in the end. We go after, police reports, body cam footage, witness statements, and toxicology reports that serve to remove all doubt that you were victimized.  

We invest in DUI injury claims.

It sometimes happens that cases require the testimony of expert witnesses. When it’s necessary, we make the financial investment to pay for experts who can solidify your case. For example, if it’s necessary to hire outside, accident reconstruction specialists we make that happen.

We assign a minimum of two staff members to each case.

We recognize that your case can be processed more efficiently, effectively, and successfully when we provide ample human resources to get the job done. This way we can provide continuity and personally focused attention to the details of your claim. 

We treat DUI accident victims like family.

Following a DUI accident, you’ll need a support system that extends beyond your own family. We provide that to our clients. We can better help you when you know you are not alone or feeling overwhelmed. That way we can help you get back to the business of living life sooner. 

We don’t charge our clients unless we win money for them.

Handling a DUI injury case is not as effective when you do it alone. When you’re worried about legal fees, you can’t concentrate on finding and presenting the evidence in order to win. We take the financial worry out of DUI accident injury cases for our clients. This helps them weather the storm of the accident better, and helps them to win the maximum compensation possible. Everybody wins.

What to Watch Out for When Hiring a DUI Injury Lawyer 

  • Some cases can take time. If you are with a firm that doesn’t care about you and your family, you can feel lost. If you don’t feel actively involved in your case, you can become even more discouraged. Look for a law firm that is committed to keeping you ‘in the loop.’ 
  • Some law firms lack specific DUI claim experience. Because our focus is and has been strictly on personal injury and DUI claims for decades, we have the edge over most other firms. 
  • Some law firms take on every single case that comes their way. This volume of cases may pay off in legal fees to that firm, but it can mean that some cases get treated as “disposable” or less important. Each of our cases has staff members who are dedicated and focused specifically on your claim. This gives you the attention your claim requires. 

What Our DUI Injury Lawyers Can Do for You 

  • We focus on building a convincing case through extensive evidence gathering and bold negotiation 
  • We take pride in accurately identifying the correct and total cost of the accident so that you can reclaim what is rightfully yours 
  • We offer helpful personal attention and support to you and your family in what is a very traumatic situation 
  • We are experts at communicating the strengths of your case to insurance companies.  When they know they are up against The Millar Law Firm, they already know they can’t get away with low-balling your claim. 

Partnering with The Millar Law Firm 

When you call The Millar Law Firm for your free first consultation, you’ll begin the process of arming yourself for the battle ahead. You’ll speak to an intake specialist who will take a brief history of your claim. It’s possible that you may speak with an attorney immediately, however a methodical approach toward getting all the information in place for that first consultation is usually best. 

The intake specialist will then schedule a consultation for you with members of our legal team. At that meeting you will explore not only the facts around your claim, but also the options you have for proceeding. You’ll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your claim, as well as learn about timelines and possible compensation. Our goal for that meeting is to provide you with a roadmap of the journey to your settlement so that you’ll know what’s ahead when you leave that first consultation. 

Experience and Focus: The Personal Injury Cases Handled by Our McDonough Attorneys

Victims of Drunk Drivers Should Aim for Maximum Compensation 

Your claim is important to us, so we naturally seek all possible compensable damages. Not only do you deserve to be paid for all of your financial and quality of life losses, but you may also be in a position to ask the court for punitive damages.  

Punitive damages are extra reparation awarded to a plaintiff over and above the usual compensatory damages. They are intended to punish the defendant for their wrongful conduct and to deter them from engaging in similar conduct in the future. 

In Georgia, punitive damages are available in DUI accident cases if the defendant’s conduct was “willful and wanton.” This means that the defendant must have acted with a conscious disregard for the safety of others. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is considered to be willful and wanton conduct in Georgia. 

The amount of punitive damages that can be awarded in a DUI accident case is capped at $250,000. However, there are a few exceptions to this cap. For example, punitive damages are not capped if the defendant was convicted of a felony DUI. 

If you have been injured in a DUI accident, you may be able to recover punitive damages from the defendant. However, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your case and determine if punitive damages are a possibility. 

Partnering with The Millar Law Firm can mean the difference between winning and losing your claim for settlement. By claiming every possible compensable item and working aggressively to collect for you, we can help you recoup all that you lost when you were victimized by an impaired driver. Our mission is to serve our clients and our community with our expansive knowledge and practical experience. Call us today. You’ll be glad you did.
