Meet Harry Brown, Jr., DC, JD
Harry Brown isn’t your average trial lawyer. Besides graduating from John Marshall Law School and passing the bar in Georgia, he earned a Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker College of Chiropractic. He was a practicing chiropractor for 10 years.
Chiropractors don’t just learn how bodies work and respond to trauma—they’re also specially trained to see things holistically. This unique perspective helps Harry and his team uncover the truth when investigating cases and understand what their clients really need.
Harry sees accident injuries and the healthcare industry in a way most personal injury lawyers don’t. He brings that empathy to his practice.

Frequently Asked Questions About Georgia Personal Injury Law
After a car accident or another injury accident, it’s normal to have a lot of questions. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to get clear, honest information from the insurance company.
Here, our personal injury lawyers answer some of your most common questions.
Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
If you were injured because of someone else's behavior, the answer is yes. The most important thing is that you get better, and now is the time to focus on healing. While you do that, a good personal injury attorney will take care of the rest. Further, an experienced attorney may secure three times the settlement or jury award you might get on your own.
What Is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury refers to legal cases that involve someone who was injured physically, mentally, or emotionally. This can also include property damage. You can demand compensation for these losses, either through a settlement or a jury award.
You might have a personal injury claim if someone else’s negligence or recklessness caused your injuries. For example, if you are injured in a car accident because another driver ran a red light, you likely have a personal injury case.
Typical personal injury cases arise from:
How Long Will My Personal Injury Claim Take?
This depends on your specific case. The more complicated it is, the longer it will take to organize the evidence and conduct negotiations.
In some cases, the insurance company agrees to a fair settlement quickly and there’s no need for a lawsuit or trial.
Unfortunately, most of the time, the insurance companies do not agree with plaintiffs’ demands right away, and they end up filing a lawsuit.
In our experience, the average time to close a case is eight months to one year. However, we can't make timeline guarantees on any case.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth in Georgia?
Every case is different, and your best bet is to discuss your claim’s strength with an experienced Savannah personal injury lawyer to know for sure. In general, you may have a strong case if:
- Someone else’s action (or inaction) caused your injury
- That injury negatively affected your life (in terms of health, finances, and quality)
- You have bills, statements, or other ways to show the other party’s fault and your losses
- The at-fault party has adequate insurance coverage to compensate you for your losses
You’ll also need to calculate your damages, or the financial and emotional losses associated with your claim. Your damages might include:
- Medical and health care costs (now and in the future)
- Lost income and wage-earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Punitive damages (in rare cases)
In Georgia, drivers must carry a liability insurance policy that’s at least $25,000 for the injury or death of one person and $50,000 for the injury or death of more than one person in a single accident. Some drivers have policies with higher limits.
When you schedule a free consultation, our team will start calculating your damages and investigating your case.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Georgia?
In most Georgia personal injury cases, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. This time limit is called the statute of limitations. If you try to file or negotiate with the insurance company after two years, you may lose your legal rights and be forever barred from seeking compensation.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost in Georgia or South Carolina?
Hiring a South Carolina or Georgia personal injury attorney will not cost you anything up-front. We take our fee as a percentage of your settlement.
That means there are zero charges up front and zero charges if we do not recover compensation or win in your case. You have no risk! Our goal is to get every client as much money as we can, as quickly as we can.
We have an experienced team of dedicated legal professionals who are at your service: our attorneys, investigators, and legal assistants. They are all trained to fight on your behalf and get you fair compensation for your losses.
We take the time to:
- Interview you carefully
- Answer your questions about your case and legal options
- Talk to your medical team about your conditions
- Gather police reports, medical records, and other evidence
- Visit the crash scene and talk to eyewitnesses
What Does an Insurance Adjuster Do?
An adjuster is a specially trained employee at an insurance company or claims management service. They investigate claims and negotiate with the injured person—trying to resolve these issues as quickly and cheaply as possible. They may also be called a claims specialist, independent claims analyst, or claims representative.
No matter what they are called, the insurance adjuster is not on your side and cannot provide legal advice. Sometimes, they will even pressure you to settle, arguing that your case isn’t worth much or that an attorney is a waste of money. These are red flags—and you should immediately call a lawyer for practical, honest advice.
What Should I Bring to a Free Consultation at The Brown Law Firm?
During your free consultation, our team will want to learn as much as possible about your claim and injuries. The following information can help speed up our investigation:
- A written account of the incident as you remember it
- The police report
