Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
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 deserves our maximum attention.
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!

Many law offices charge extensive legal fees before they will begin any work for the client. This will often cause added financial pressure 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 fair settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance provider.
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 accept the offer.

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 Do 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 future treatments.
– Always follow the recommendation of the doctor.
Hire a Personal Injury Attorney as Quickly as Possible
The 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. In South Carolina, it’s three years.
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.
- 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 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 financial 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 Georgia and South Carolina, 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 motor vehicle 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 car accident lawyers have many years of experience handling these types of cases.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Many nursing home residents are especially vulnerable to neglect and elder abuse because they rely on staff to meet their needs. There are state and federal laws in place to protect nursing home residents.
If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of nursing home’s negligence, you can count on us to represent you with compassion.
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 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 liable party. Our passionate team of attorneys, can review your offer and fight for you if you need to settle for more.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law
After an accident, it’s normal to have a lot of questions. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to get clear, honest information from the insurance company.
Here, our personal injury lawyers answer some of your most common questions.
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.
Whiplash occurs when the body moves forward and backward at high speeds causing the muscles and ligaments to stretch.
Symptoms of whiplash may include pain in the neck, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, fatigue, muscle weakness, numbness in the arms or legs, tingling sensations, loss of balance, memory problems, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and even paralysis.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries occur when there is trauma to the spinal column.
Symptoms of spinal cord injury may include weakness, numbness, tingling, burning sensation, pain, paresthesia, bowel and bladder dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, spasticity, sleep disturbance, cognitive impairment, seizures, and coma.
Brain damage is the third most common type of injury, following neck and back injuries. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are also a result of these types of accidents.
There are many different types of TBI, including contusions, lacerations, fractures, hematomas, edema, hemorrhages, and traumatic brain swelling. These devastating injuries are generally associated with blunt force trauma, falls, and motor vehicle crashes.
Common symptoms of brain damage include headache, confusion, disorientation, difficulty thinking, slurred speech, inability to remember things, lack of coordination, visual impairments, and hearing loss.
A concussion occurs when the brain moves inside the skull after being hit by an external force.
Most people who suffer from concussions have no symptoms at first. However, if left untreated, it may cause permanent damage to the brain.
Symptoms of concussion include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, fatigue, irritability, memory loss, confusion, depression, and difficulty concentrating.
A broken bone or fracture is any break in the continuity of a bone. Fractures occur when the body experiences extreme trauma, such as a car accident.
If not treated properly, these bodily injuries can lead to serious complications, including infection, deformity, and disability.
Common types of fractured bones include wrist, ankle, elbow, hip, knee, ribs, and shoulders.
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are injuries caused by the sudden twisting motion of joints. These injuries often result in pain and swelling.
Sprains and strains usually happen in the ankles, wrists, elbows, knees, neck, back, shoulders, and fingers.
Burns are injuries where the skin is damaged by heat.
Skin burns can range from superficial to deep, depending on how long they last and what type of burn they are. Superficial burns involve only the top layer of the skin, while deep burns go deeper than the skin.
Medical expenses, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, burial expenses, and punitive damages are some of the types of damages that you can claim after a personal injury accident.
In Georgia, the statute of limitations for civil cases such as car accidents, wrongful death, and other personal injury claims is two years. In South Carolina, you have three years from the date of the injury. You must file a personal injury claim by then, or your case will not be valid.
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.
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 what you can and cannot say to the insurance company.
Hiring one of our 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.
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.
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 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.
Low 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 attorneys are straightforward and will provide you with all pertinent information regarding the case.
