Why Hire The Millar Law Firm for Your Car Accident Case
Headquartered in neighboring Jonesboro, The Millar Law Firm has been assisting Riverdale residents who have been injured in car accidents since 1993.
If you were involved in a crash caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be made whole through compensation. Our firm has recovered over $100 million in compensation for car accident victims.
While there are plenty of big firms in Atlanta flashing similar numbers, bigger is not always better when it comes to injury law cases. Throughout the years, we have remained a small firm committed to helping residents in our local community of Clayton County, Georgia, with a focused, personalized approach to legal representation.
Unlike some law firms, we have focused solely on injury law cases since our establishment in 1993. Because The Millar Law Firm has concentrated on only one area of law for almost 29 years, we have developed the expertise to delve deeply into each case to provide the best possible outcome for our clients.
The big law firms you see advertised on TV must often use a “one size fits all” approach to deal with their large volume of cases and clients, but this isn’t always effective because no two vehicle accidents are exactly alike. Your case needs individualized attention, and you need an attorney who can take the time to focus on you and your needs.
At The Millar Law Firm, we have stayed small so that we can give each client the attention they deserve. The more we get to know our clients and learn about their cases, the more compensation we can recover for their accidents.
And we don’t just practice law in Riverdale and surrounding areas; we also give back to the community. We know that we could never have become successful without the Clayton County community, so we work on strengthening our relationship with residents and proudly support local businesses, charities, and other organizations.
How a Riverdale Car Accident Lawyer Can Help You
Whether your accident was minor or severe, you may incur high costs for a variety of reasons, and those costs only seem to be rising in the Atlanta area. These expenses may include body shop repairs, paying out the car’s value, a rental car, an ambulance ride, an ER visit, surgery, follow-up care, and more. And that doesn’t even include noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering and the negative effect on your quality of life.
If the insurance company doesn’t compensate you for everything, you end up paying out of your own pocket. But insurance companies are never looking to pay the full cost of an accident because it’s not in their best interests, which is why you need someone looking out for you.
An experienced Riverdale car accident lawyer can build a strong legal claim by collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, proving the other driver’s fault, and consulting experts to
calculate an accurate total cost of the crash. Armed with this information, our attorneys can negotiate with the insurance company from a position of strength to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Other Important Reasons to Hire a Riverdale Car Accident Lawyer
Car accident cases may involve disputes over which driver’s actions caused the collision. Georgia is a comparative negligence state, which means that you can still seek compensation even if you were partly at fault. How much you receive depends on your degree, or percentage, of fault. If your degree of fault is found to be 50 percent or higher, you cannot recover monetary damages.
Hiring a lawyer to prove your claim can help reduce the percentage of negligence you are assessed. By showing reduced negligence, there’s also a chance of removing a traffic ticket connected to the accident.
In addition, reducing your percentage of fault decreases the likelihood of your insurance premiums going up. In the rare case that your carrier seeks to cancel your insurance because of an accident, proving you were not at fault can save your coverage.
Common Vehicle Accidents That We Cover
Since 1993, The Millar Law Firm has handled a wide range of vehicle accidents, including:
Many large trucks pass through Atlanta on the interstate system, and their size and limited braking capability can cause accidents with devastating injuries for those driving smaller vehicles.
Motorcycle drivers are particularly vulnerable to accidents caused by high speeds and low visibility, and there is a wide variety in the type of injuries sustained and compensation received in these cases.
When a car flips over during an accident, there is a greater chance of serious injuries or paralysis that may entitle the victim to significant compensation.
In hit-and-run cases, drivers often flee the scene of the accident or claim someone else was driving the car. If the driver is located, they may be responsible for punitive damages; if the driver is not found, you may pursue an uninsured motorist claim.
When a person is hit by a car while walking or running, the driver is often at fault; however, if a pedestrian is found partly to blame for the accident, their compensation may be limited by their at-fault percentage.
Though victims sometimes report feeling “fine” after a fender bender, these types of collisions often cause delayed symptoms from concussions, spinal injuries, and traumatic brain injuries.
Intersection cases can be problematic because many at-fault drivers claim they had a green light or cast blame on the victim, so an investigation into traffic signal or vehicle data is usually needed to prove fault.
When drivers pull out in front of an oncoming car, drift into another lane, or turn illegally, they can be held liable for any damage caused by the resulting crash.
These types of accidents can produce a range of costs, from minor car damage caused by a simple mistake to severe injuries caused by angry drivers who may be punished with punitive verdicts.
A large number of car accidents are caused by speeding and reckless driving, and we prove these drivers are at fault through evidence such as eyewitness testimony, police reports, and accident reconstruction.
This type of accident is often caused by reckless driving or someone driving while drunk or distracted and can result in fatal or serious injuries.
To ensure full compensation for the family of the victim, a negligent death claim must be proven using an established network of experts.
When a crash causes the victim to suffer catastrophic spinal injuries, we gather evidence that proves fault and establishes the current and future value of losses through expert witnesses, medical providers, life-care planners, and vocational and economic specialists.
Riverdale is close to I-75, so accidents caused by heavy traffic, high speeds, and large vehicles on the interstate are a common occurrence for its residents.
Our firm has handled many other kinds of accident cases, including multiple car pileups, T-bone collisions, road rage attacks, and wrecks caused by defective vehicle parts.
