Alpharetta Car Accident Lawyers

Alpharetta, Georgia began decades ago as a tiny village called New Prospect Camp Ground that ran adjacent to a Cherokee Indian trail. Officially chartered on December 11 of 1858, Alpharetta, merged with Fulton County during the Great Depression in order to avoid bankruptcy. Since then, the city has remained relatively small in size in comparison to other, larger cities located in the state, which has enabled it to retain its quaint, hometown atmosphere.

Several local attractions contribute to Alpharetta’s slightly old-world feel, making it a respite from some of Georgia’s more crowded cities:

  • The ever-popular Taste of Alpharetta is a yearly food festival featuring food from local restaurants, live music, and art exhibits.
  • The Milton Log Cabin, which is currently available for scheduled tours, was built by Future Farmers of America students in the 1930s.
  • The historic Mansell House and Gardens is a 1912 Queen Anne-style home that (very appropriately) serves as the headquarters for the Alpharetta Historical Society.

Despite the popularity of the city in its current state, it boasts high hopes of further economic expansion. In May 2011, Alpharetta unveiled a plan to redevelop approximately 22-acres of property Downtown Alpharetta. By 2014, the city hopes to realize a vision characterized by scenic parks and civic space that will attract both businesses and investors.

Car Accident Prevention and Traffic Calming Devices in the City of Alpharetta

Integral to this vision of expansion is the perpetuation of a safe environment, especially in regards to traffic safety and car accident reduction. To decrease the number of car accidents occurring within city limits, the City’s Department of Engineering and Public Works has established several traffic calming guidelines. Traffic calming devices, like speed humps/cushions, raised crosswalks, and traffic islands have been put in place in neighborhoods in accordance with these guidelines.

With such safety devices in place and operating as a reasonably successful deterrent, car accident lawyers in Alpharetta, Georgia know that car collisions often involve some form of negligence. In car accidents, negligence often occurs when a motorist fails to exercise reasonable care while operating a vehicle.

In order to show negligence, plaintiffs in personal injury cases must prove the four elements of negligence:

  1. The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty to exercise reasonable care
  2. The defendant breached that duty
  3. The defendant’s breach of that duty caused the accident, and
  4. The plaintiff suffered personal or property (or both) damage from the accident.

Oftentimes, several theories of negligence may be involved in a particular case, especially where the issues might become a bit more complicated. In such cases, it is best to have a car accident attorney on your side, working for you.

Client Reviews
I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident. I was glad I called Briant because he always did what he said he would do and kept me informed. We settled with the insurance company and I'm happy with the result. If someone I know needs an attorney, I will tell them to call Briant because he will get the job done. Michael G.
After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this firm so I talked to Briant Mildenhall about handling the case. I was at ease from the get–go. Briant kept me informed all the way through, was always reassuring and did everything he said he would do. He helped us get the money we needed to get the treatment we needed. Briant was fantastic! Ronda W. (Car Accident)
I was in a car accident that was complicated from the start. I looked on the internet and called a few different lawyers but they turned me down after they heard my story. When I called this firm Lyn Dodson asked me to talk to her in person. I met with Lyn and Rob Katz and after hearing my story they were confident I had a case. They vigorously pursued my case and over time we built a trusting relationship. Lyn even took time to help me with the traffic issues and other aspects of the case. They were always on my side and talked to me about the advantages and disadvantages of my options... Robert W. (Car Accident)
After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Wright Fleming & Dodson, LLC. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me. He was very clear and honest about my options. As the case went forward, Briant and the staff at the law office always answered my questions right away. I was very confident in Briant's legal ability. He kept me informed every step of the way. I would recommend Mr. Mildenhall and the firm to anyone who needs an attorney. Antonio J. (Car Accident)
I would recommend the law firm of Katz Wright Fleming & Dodson, LLC. Lyn Dodson was my attorney after my auto accident. I had confidence in her legal abilities and experience. She did a very good job for me. She was always there to answer the many questions I asked. The firm is very professional. Lyn always gave you her undivided attention. The firm, especially Lyn, worked with you like a long time friend. Joe B. (Auto Accident)
I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. Steve H.
Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't. Timothy W. (Trucking Accident)
I have nothing but good and positive things to say about Rob. One of the unique things about my case was that I was involved in a bicycle accident with another biker. He took an unorthodox case between two bicycle riders and he could see the logic and liability in it. I was very happy with the result. Rodney H. (Bicycle Accident)
We just loved him to death. He acted like he cared about us, not just our case. He kept us posted on everything. He even called us on Sundays to update us. My case involved a rear-end collision where I had herniated disks and I had had a prior back injury. Complicated as it was, we were very happy with the outcome. Kathy H. (Car accident)
Throughout the course of my case, Mr. Katz kept me informed about its status, returned my telephone calls and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. Simply put, he cared not just about my case, but about me. Joseph B.
I was, and still am, extremely satisfied with Rob's work and with the outcome of my case. Rob strives to be there for his clients, and I was no exception...I would happily recommend Rob to anyone who is seeking legal assistance after suffering a severe injury. Joey E.
