Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The Problem

All too often, lawyers want you to settle your case as quickly as possible so they can get paid fast, and it doesn’t require much effort on their part. At The Brown Firm, we believe that each case and each family deserves our maximum attention.


Why Us?

See as both an attorney and a chiropractor, Harry Brown has seen how injuries can impact your quality of life both physically and financially. Also, he has seen the ugly side of how insurance companies take advantage of people! By treating patients and dealing with the healthcare and insurance industries, Harry realized he could bring that experience and knowledge to personal injury law for people like you.

Many law offices charge extensive legal fees before they will begin any work for the client. This will often cause added financial stress to an already stressful time. 

The Brown Firm does not charge any up-front fees to begin legal work. All of the attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid when you receive a settlement from the other party’s insurance company. 

Our lawyers work for you.
We provide open communication with our clients and 24/7 availability to answer any of your questions and concerns. We represent your best interests, and your needs are our priority.

All discussions remain confidential.
All details and discussions about your case are kept confidential. If you wish for your lawyer to disclose any information to your spouse or other relatives, you must give us permission to do so. 

We will always ask permission before settling your case.
If a settlement offer is received, we will contact you and review the offer, providing our recommendation on whether you should or should not accept the offer.

Still need more information?

Let’s go through some specifics about Personal Injury Law that you need to know and the particular practice areas we serve.

What You Need to File a Personal Injury Claim


Get Medical Treatment After Your Accident

After you are involved in an accident, it’s crucial to your health and a potential lawsuit to be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible. 

Regardless of how you feel immediately after the accident, it’s still important to seek medical care. The doctor will be able to find out if you suffered any severe injuries, even if you are not in any immediate pain. They will also provide your attorney with the necessary documentation of your injuries to help with the lawsuit. 

It’s important to keep the following in mind:

– Immediately seek medical attention after an accident.

– Do not miss appointments.

– Always follow the recommendation of the doctor.


Hire a Personal Injury Attorney as Quickly as Possible

Georgia’s Personal Injury System allows the injured to be compensated financially after suffering harm because of another’s careless or negligent actions.  

Personal Injury cases in Georgia allow for a two-year statute of limitations before you can begin a lawsuit. 

It’s important to contact an attorney as quickly as possible after an accident occurs so they can begin the investigation process for your case.

There are a wide variety of people who will wait to hire an attorney because they think they will owe extensive legal fees. While in some cases that might be true, it is not true for The Brown Firm. 

  • The Brown Firm operates on a contingency basis. This means we do not ask for any money up-front, we will fight diligently to win your case. Otherwise we do not get paid. When you receive a settlement, that’s when our attorneys receive their compensation as well. 
  • Studies show that injured victims who are represented by a personal injury lawyer receive an average settlement more than three times higher than those who are not represented.
  • Negotiating a settlement is a complicated process. Consider an insurance adjuster’s full-time job dealing with accidents and injury cases. He or she is backed by professional investigators, medical experts, vocational specialists, etc.


The faster you speak with an experienced Personal Injury Attorney, the better chance you will have at receiving the maximum amount of compensation that you are owed for your losses. 

The lawyers at our firm will complete a thorough investigation into your accident, and if they need to, they will hire medical experts to review your injuries and medical records. 

It will be up to your attorney to handle all of the negotiations with the other person’s insurance company. If for some reason, an agreement cannot be met, your attorney will be prepared to take your case to trial. 

If the case does go to trial, it will then be up to a judge or jury to determine the amount of compensation that you should receive from the party responsible for your losses.


Personal Injury Cases We Handle


Whether you have been in a car accident or suffered medical malpractice, our legal team represents clients during their most stressful times. For more than a decade, we have represented the injured in Athens, and we can put that experience to work for you.


In some cases, car accidents result in long-term, life-altering injuries. Some people may be affected by the consequences of a car accident for the rest of their lives, with a disfiguring scar or throbbing pain serving as a constant reminder of the traumatic event that occurred.

Our Athens car accident lawyers have many years of experience handling these types of cases.


If you or a loved one has been hit by a vehicle while crossing the street, you should seek legal counsel from The Brown Firm before accepting any offer from the other party. Our passionate team of attorneys, backed by a proven track record of success, can review your offer and fight for you if you need to settle for more.


Workplace injuries may range from minor cuts that heal in a few days to traumatic brain injuries that may never fully heal. It may be crucial for you and your dependents to secure enough money to meet your needs. Our attorneys can help you get a favorable outcome.


Many nursing home residents are especially vulnerable to neglect and abuse because they rely on staff to meet their needs. There are state and federal laws in place to protect nursing home residents. Residents are expected to treat each other with dignity and respect.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of a nursing home’s negligence, you can count on us to represent you with compassion. We understand the feelings of fear and betrayal that frequently accompany injuries in nursing homes, and we will work tirelessly to help you get the justice that you deserve.


An accident involving semi-truck can be a devastating experience for the driver. Cars, SUVs, and even pickup trucks are dwarfed by large tractor-trailers, which means that collisions between the two rarely end well. Their sheer size, when combined with tired, overworked drivers, can spell disaster for motorists.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident that was someone else’s fault, contact The Brown Firm for legal advice and representation.


Accidents involving motor vehicles and bicycles are unfortunately common in Athens.

Bicycle accidents can cause devastating injuries and many fatalities due to a variety of factors ranging from failure to respect the right-of-way to driving while distracted. Some of these damages can result in large medical bills, property damage, and months of lost wages for victims.

The Brown Firm can help you get the compensation you need after a bicycle accident. 


Medical malpractice can come in a variety of forms, including birth injuries, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, medication errors, and surgical errors.

You may need to demonstrate that the health care provider was “grossly negligent,” so contact The Brown Firm for an initial consultation and let our legal staff do the work for you.


In the United States, motorcycle riders are more likely to be involved in accidents and suffer serious injuries. It’s simply not fair that you or a loved one must endure motorcycle accident injuries while also battling insurance matters or being offered a far lower settlement than you deserve.

Contact our injury firm if you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle wreck.

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, the negligent property owner may be held financially liable for your injuries, including medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages.

Seek out our skilled representation if you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident due to the negligence of others. 

It is never easy to lose a loved one. It’s even more difficult to deal with your own grief while also fighting for justice in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Don’t try to handle it alone if you intend to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one. It is in your best interests to work with a skilled wrongful death attorney who understands your pain and can provide compassionate legal counsel.

If you were bitten by a dog in the Athens area as a result of negligence, you may be unaware that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, medical costs, and damages. The Brown Firm has skilled attorneys who can assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Athens Personal Injury Law

After an 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.


What Damages Can You Claim for Personal Injury?

Medical expense, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium are some of the types of injury damages that you can claim after a personal injury accident.


How Long Do You Have to Sue for Personal Injury?

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for civil cases such as car accidents, wrongful death, and other personal injury claims is two years. You must file a personal injury claim by then, or your case will not be valid. 


How Is Settlement Value Calculated?

The settlement value is basically what a jury would award you for what you went through because of your injuries. That number is the sum of your pain, suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.


What Should I Say if an Insurance Adjuster Contacts Me After My Accident?

Nothing! If an insurance company contacts you, you should not respond until you have spoken with your attorney. The primary reason why the insurance company contacts accident victims, is to obtain a statement that can be used to reduce the value of compensation.

Although you may eventually be required to communicate with them, you should always contact an expert legal team first. In order to protect the value of your case, they will explain precisely what you may and cannot say to the insurance company.


How Long Does It Take To Negotiate a Settlement?

Negotiations typically take several weeks or months and usually come to a conclusion when both parties agree on a number that has been offered. Throughout the negotiation process, both parties will typically make counteroffers in different amounts. 


How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Hiring one of our Athens personal injury lawyers will not cost you any upfront legal fees because we offer our clients a free consultation and work on a contingency fee basis. Only a small amount of your final payment goes to your lawyer.

Because your attorney is paid on a contingency fee basis, you may rest assured that they will do everything possible to maximize your settlement and ensure that you win your claim.


How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

You will need proof that you were injured as a result of someone else’s negligent actions. This will show through medical records. If you can show that another party’s negligent actions caused you harm, then you have a personal injury claim. 


What Qualities Should a Personal Injury Lawyer Possess?

Communication - You can determine the competence of an attorney based on how they interact with their clients. Our attorneys at The Brown Firm will keep you informed about every aspect of the case. Additionally, they will treat you with the utmost respect.

Experience - A personal injury attorney with experience has a greater chance of winning the case than a novice. Our Athens attorneys are experienced and licensed to represent clients in personal injury cases.

Availability - You can contact our legal staff outside of normal business hours if you have questions regarding your lawsuit.

Legal Fees - Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they are not paid unless you are compensated. Additionally, The Brown Firm ensures that your legal fees are not wasted.

Honesty - There is always the possibility that you will lose the lawsuit. Our Athens attorneys are straightforward and will provide you with all pertinent information regarding the case.
