Decatur Car Accident Attorneys

Founded in 1822, the city of Decatur, Georgia, has its county seat in DeKalb County. The friendly place posits as its motto, “A city of homes, schools, and places of worship.” With a population of just under 20,000, 224 full-time teachers and 2,519 students, the motto adequately describes the city. Once the site of Sherman’s campaign during the Civil War, Decatur now boasts a reputation for being a progressive and trendy mixed-use district. Despite its proximity to bustling Atlanta and the national attention the city has garnered for its economic development, it has managed to maintain its small, hometown feel. This is due in part to Decatur’s preservation of historically significant buildings.

Decatur’s Unique Issues with Car Accidents, Traffic Congestion and Construction

Although it is relatively small in relation to the neighboring city of Atlanta, Decatur is host to its own unique set of traffic problems, especially in the downtown area. The completion of several long-term downtown developments allowed the city to flourish (and subsequently attracted tourism), while simultaneously making its streets ripe for car accidents, particularly if drivers’ fail to exercise proper caution. In fact, in efforts to discourage through traffic, the city encourages the use of MARTA, bicycling and walking as alternatives to driving, and has installed a number of pedestrian crosswalks on the city’s busiest streets.

Many residents take advantage of these recommendations. For those who do not, increased construction and ensuing road closures continue to cause problems on Decatur’s pedestrian-ridden streets. Combine the overcrowded streets with impatient drivers, and car crashes are all too common in DeKalb’s county seat.

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)
After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Personal Injury Lawyers. 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 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.
