Do I Need a Millen Personal Injury Attorney?
A serious accident can change your life in a split second. Although you may be entitled to compensation, insurance companies do not make the process easy. After an accident, the insurance company may send an adjuster to speak with you.
Adjusters often try to act as if they want to be your friend, but their job is to disprove your claim. They may want to ask you questions or request that you give them a recorded statement. You are within your rights to refuse to answer questions unless you have your attorney present.
The Millen personal injury attorneys from Chris Hudson Law Group have years of experience working with insurance companies and can help prevent you from saying something inadvertently that negatively affects your claim.
Attorney Chris Hudson is a former insurance defense lawyer. He knows how to present claims effectively to insurance companies. Over the years, he has learned the strategies that insurance companies use to discredit injury victims and thus avoid paying the full value of the claim.
Insurance companies have experienced attorneys and adjusters representing their rights and protecting their financial interests. You should have a compassionate and experienced lawyer working for you, too.

Injury Lawsuits Have a Time Limit
Georgia law limits the amount of time a person has to file a personal injury lawsuit. This time limit is defined in the statute of limitations. In Georgia, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
If you fail to file a lawsuit within that year, you may relinquish your right to seek justice and compensation in court. Georgia law allows the exception when the accident results in loss of consortium. In this case, the time limit is four years from the date of the accident. Your lawyer can help you determine the correct time frame for your situation.
Types of Compensation Available
After an accident-related injury, you may have questions about the amount of compensation that may be available. When you work with the experienced attorneys on our team, they will give you an estimate of how much your claim may be worth.
If negotiations with the insurance company are successful, you may receive compensation for special and general losses in your settlement. Special losses are verifiable and objective costs. For example, this could include medical expenses, lost wages, or lost future earnings.
General losses are subjective costs. For example, this could include disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering. If negotiations are not successful, you may choose to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit.
If the judge finds in your favor, you will be awarded special and general damages. In rare cases, the judge or jury may award punitive damages. This is not compensation for you. Rather, an award of this kind is punishment for a defendant’s malicious or intentional behavior.
