When we founded our law firm in 1993, the Georgia personal injury lawyers of Millar & Mixon, LLC, decided that we would represent only accident victims – not insurance companies. If you have been injured by another person’s intentional or negligent acts, we want to be in your corner and stand up for your right to be compensated for your losses.
By focusing in this area of the law, our law firm has developed a high level of expertise. We know how to investigate and develop cases, and we know how to secure the funds our clients need and deserve. Above all, we understand the difficult challenges that accident victims and their families face. We’re willing to work closely with them to achieve their goals.

What To Expect in a Georgia Personal Injury Case
A personal injury claim can arise in many different circumstances. At Millar & Mixon, LLC, we focus on helping those who have been injured or lost loved ones in car, truck and motorcycle accidents. Our cases include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Passenger Injuries
- DUI Victims / Accidents (persons hit by drunk or drugged drivers)
- Single Car Accidents (roll overs, tire blow outs, defective vehicles)
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death
First, we will determine what happened in your accident. An experienced attorney will evaluate and investigate your car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident claim.
If needed, we will hire investigators and consult with highly qualified accident reconstruction experts to determine what caused the accident and who was at fault.
In some cases, the company who employs a negligent driver or a bar, restaurant or tavern that serves a noticeably intoxicated driver (this is known as a dram shop case) can also be held responsible for an injury claim.
Often, we are able to settle your injury case without filing a lawsuit. We work hard to achieve a fair settlement from the insurance company and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
We will search for all possible sources to recover money for you. If the at-fault party’s insurance coverage is not enough to cover our client’s losses, we will explore whether uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM / UIM) coverage or umbrella insurance may help you recover additional money.
Sometimes, a lawsuit is necessary. No one likes to go to Court. Although we will try to reach a fair settlement before filing suit that includes reasonable compensation for your injuries, medical bills and lost wages, insurance companies are not always interested in being fair.
The monetary damages that may be sought in the lawsuit include:
- Special damages – Economic losses, such as past and future medical expenses, funeral costs, and lost past and future wages
- General damages – Non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement or the loss of society and companionship of a loved one
- Punitive damages – The amount awarded to punish and deter a defendant and others from engaging in willful misconduct that endangers others. Under Georgia law, this amount can be capped at $250,000 unless the accident involves a drunk driver. Because intoxicated driving is so egregious, there is no punitive damages cap in such personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
During a lawsuit, we are able to engage in a process that is called “discovery.” This allows us to subpoena documents and witnesses, take depositions, and discover important evidence about the at-fault person or Company and our attorneys often work with other professionals who specialize in car, truck and motorcycle accidents, such as accident reconstruction and law enforcement experts. For instance, in a recent case, we discovered that a driver had a history of DUI convictions, which helped us to secure a substantial settlement during the discovery process.
From our experience, we know that insurance companies will try to pay the least amount possible. Because we prepare each case as if it is going to trial, we often resolve cases prior to trial by showing the Insurance Company we are willing to fight hard. If we are not able to reach a settlement, our aggressive approach to the discovery process allows us to be ready for trial.
Once a verdict or settlement is reached, our office will help resolve any other issues that may exist. For example, in many cases, a healthcare provider may seek to recover unpaid medical bills or an insurance company may place a lien on your settlement.
Because our law practice is devoted to personal injury and insurance matters, we are often able to negotiate a substantial reduction in the amounts that must be repaid against medical insurance liens, hospital liens, physician and chiropractic liens, and government liens such as Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements.
We will do our best to ensure that you keep as much of your settlement money as possible.
