Roswell, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta with 103,711 residents is located in northern Fulton County. At Millar & Mixon, LLC, we focus our practice on representing persons seriously injured in car accidents in the Roswell and Fulton County area.
Located twenty miles north of Atlanta on the Chattahoochee River, Roswell has evolved from being a sleepy textile mill town on the river to the sixth largest city in Georgia. Roswell’s strategic location on Georgia Highway 400 has attracted light industry, high-tech businesses, and several corporate headquarters.
As with all cities experiencing commercial and residential growth, Roswell is seeing increased traffic volume. The City of Roswell is preparing to begin construction on Roswell’s first roundabout at the intersection of Grimes Bridge Road and Norcross Street/Warsaw Road. The five-leg roundabout will allow for the removal of the traffic signal and has been designed to allow traffic to move freely through the intersection. According to the city government, 20 accidents occurred at this intersection in 2008, half of which were rear-end collisions. Those drivers involved in minor accidents without serious personal injuries would likely only have to appear at the Roswell Municipal Court, which is located at 38 Hill Street, Suite 200, Roswell. The Municipal Court hears traffic violations and violations of city ordinances.
Roswell utilizes the State Court of Fulton County, located at 185 Central Avenue, #T1605, Atlanta and the Fulton County Superior Court at 136 Pryor Street SW, Atlanta. Roswell residents involved in a car, pedestrian, motorcycle, or bicycle accident involving a Fulton County resident typically have their personal injury case heard at the State Court of Fulton County, where the car accident lawyers of Millar & Mixon, LLC have experience helping clients recover what they are owed.
The State Court hears all criminal cases below the grade of felony and all civil actions regardless of the amount in controversy. The Magistrate Court of Fulton County, a division of the State Court of Fulton County, hears civil actions involving $15,000 or less in damages. The Fulton County Superior Court, Georgia’s busiest trial court of general jurisdiction, presides over administrative appeals and civil, major criminal, and domestic relations cases.
The car accident attorneys of Millar & Mixon, LLC have already helped hundreds of clients throughout the state of Georgia who were seriously injured in an accident. An investigation into what caused the accident or the severity and extent of your injuries may be harmed by any delay in obtaining legal counsel. Residents of Roswell have the advantage of excellent healthcare with 24-hour emergency care available at the North Fulton Hospital, a state-designated Level II Trauma Center in Roswell.
