Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys in Atlanta and Decatur

If you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence or carelessness of another person or a corporation, the law entitles you to seek compensation for the damages caused by this careless conduct. Of all the Georgia personal injury cases that our firm has handled over the years, approximately ninety percent (90%) involve a car wreck in Atlanta, a work injury in Atlanta, or a slip or trip and fall in Atlanta. Understandably, the Atlanta metro area is the most prevalent city for injuries such as these simply because of its large population.


If you have been involved in a car accident in Georgia, you can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, psychological injury and pain suffered from the accident. Sadly, many Georgians lose their lives in car accidents on Atlanta roads and highways and this may give rise to a wrongful death claim. Our diligent and experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyers will get you and your loved ones full compensation when you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another driver. Often, car wrecks are caused when a driver:

  • Follows too close and hits you from behind
  • Runs a red light or stop sign
  • Turns left into oncoming traffic that has the right of way
  • Fails to maintain their lane
  • Crosses the center line or attempts to pass in a no passing zone
  • Is intoxicated (DUI) and causes a crash due to impaired reaction time, impaired attention, or impaired perception
  • Fails to properly maintain his vehicle or tractor trailer in proper working order
  • Is a tractor trailer driver that drives too fast for conditions or fails to take rests or breaks as he is required to take by law
  • Is on his cell phone or texting and not paying attention to traffic

Seeking justice and financial compensation for injured parties is the definition of personal injury law. At McAleer Law, we believe everyone should have equal access to justice. Our firm’s priority is to get our clients the money they deserve. Charles McAleer and his associates at McAleer Law have extensive experience in personal injury law and workers compensation law in Georgia.


Another very common way folks in Georgia are injured is at work. Many of the Atlanta workers compensation clients we represent are injured doing some type of medium to heavy duty work. In these cases, spinal injuries, especially lower back injuries, are common. We have represented numerous office, clerical, or trade workers such as iron workers and electricians, who are injured by some sort of fall on the work property, or when travelling for work, or simply just doing their everyday job, for example, typing which can lead to carpel tunnel syndrome.

If you’ve been injured on the job in Georgia, you are entitled to medical treatment, income benefits and compensation if you are left with a permanent impairment from your injuries. In addition to these benefits, you are also entitled to some out of pocket expenses, travel expenses, and, if you have a catastrophic injury, you may also be entitled to housing expenses and rehabilitation benefits. Talk to an Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer today to find out if you are getting all of the benefits you are entitled to receive under the law.

One thing that sets the McAleer Law Firm apart from most other personal injury law firms in Atlanta is that when you call about your personal injury or workers compensation case, you will be immediately connected with a Georgia personal injury attorney. The “mega firms” will put you through a call center staffed by non-lawyers who cannot immediately address your important questions, such as:

  • “Do I have a case?”
  • “Am I responsible for my medical bills if I’ve been in a car accident or if I’ve been injured in a work accident?
  • “Why does the insurance company want to record my statement?”
  • “Do I have to give an insurance company a recorded statement?”
  • “How much is my case worth?”
  • “What if I can’t work – can I recoup my lost wages?”
  • “What is a fair settlement in my workers compensation case?”
  • “What is a fair settlement in my car accident case?”

These, and many other questions, can be addressed only by an experienced Georgia injury attorney. Why spend hours of your day speaking to call center workers that cannot address your concern or spend even more time repeating yourself to the multitude of other people you might talk to in a “mega firm” before you can speak to an attorney.

Instead, call the McAleer Law Firm now and talk directly to an Atlanta personal injury attorney. Charles McAleer and his team of attorneys have over 25 years of experience handling personal injury and workers compensation cases in Georgia. If we cannot speak to you immediately, we promise a quick call back.

The McAleer Law Firm Will Stand by You

Another word of caution about the “mega firms”: if your case has to go to trial, most of the mega firms will withdraw from your case because the attorneys who work in these firms are not trial attorneys. This not only means that you will have to start all over with another firm but, even worse, the mega firm likely did a very poor job preparing your case in the event it will have to go to trial. Evidence is lost and memories have faded and your case will not be prepared in a manner that will achieve full compensation for your injuries.

Another important advantage when working with the McAleer law Firm is that because we are willing to go to trial on even small cases, the insurance companies know we will not settle for less than a case is really worth which in turn leads to higher settlements. The mega firms have a reputation within the insurance industry for accepting pennies on the dollar because the only way they can generate revenue is to settle. The only way to keep the mega firm afloat is by settling cases (not trying cases). The insurance companies know this. Our firm has gotten involved in countless cases where our clients were not willing to accept low-ball offers with their mega firm and, with us, were able to see substantially better results because we are trial attorneys willing to go the distance.
