Law Firm Overview

The McAleer Law Firm, PC, provides thorough legal representation and personalized service for accident victims. Our clients are regular people who have suffered life-changing injuries caused by car and workplace accidents, falls, and doctor errors.
Some have lost loved ones from an accident that should never have happened.

The injuries that people suffer can be severe and permanent. Some people have spinal cord or back injuries and can no longer work; others have soft tissue injuries that insurers are unwilling to accept as a valid injury; others suffer from complex regional pain syndrome; and still others are dealing with the grievous loss of a family member in an accident.

Our personal injury law office has a proven track record of results on behalf of our clients. We use our experience, understanding of accident law, and our legal skills to seek compensation for our clients including lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, psychological injury, and lost quality of life.

At The McAleer Law Firm, P.C., you work with a lawyer who gives your case the time, diligence, and personal attention that it deserves. This means that a qualified attorney handles your case from start to finish. When you need to talk to us, we will be there for you. No matter how difficult or "small" your case may seem, we will fight vigorously and knowledgeably on your behalf. Your phone calls will be answered promptly, and your attorney will handle other legal matters that may affect you, like workers’ compensation, Social Security disability, unfair debt collection, or business litigation matters.

Areas of Law Description

The McAleer Law Firm, P.C. offers legal representation on the following areas of practice:

- Personal Injury

Personal injury cases often involve claims of negligence, recklessness or even intentional conduct. Common injuries in personal injury include head injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, broken bones, knee injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, shoulder injuries, muscle and ligament injuries, herniated or bulging disks, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and death if an accident results in a fatality. The McAleer Law Firm, P.C., in Atlanta, Georgia, represents injured clients in personal injury accidents and wrongful death litigation in Georgia and throughout the United States.

- Motor Vehicle Accident Injury

A motor vehicle accident case can involve cars, trucks, motorcycles or any other kind of motor vehicle. A pedestrian struck by an oncoming vehicle with serious debilitating injuries or a motor vehicle that enters an intersection against the light causing an auto accident is a typical case. Our Atlanta auto accident attorneys can evaluate your claim and let you know what to expect from such a claim. The McAleer Law Firm, P.C. has recovered millions of dollars for our clients. Our auto accident attorneys in Atlanta have years of experience in litigating motor vehicle accident cases.

- Workers' Compensation

If you are injured on the job in Georgia, and if your employer is required to have workers’ compensation insurance coverage, then you are entitled to certain benefits to compensate you for your medical care, some allowable expenses, and lost time while you recover from your injury. While there are exceptions for certain types of businesses based on either the size or type of business, most employers in Georgia are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance and are required to compensate you for medical treatment, lost income, and related expenses through their workers’ compensation insurance.

- Social Security Disability

If you have filed a Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, or are considering filing for benefits because of a debilitating disorder or injury, there is something very important you have to keep in mind: Do not give up. Attorneys of The McAleer Law Firm, P.C. have helped hundreds of injured and disabled people successfully process initial claims and successfully appeal a claims denial. If you are considering filing a Social Security Disability, Disability Insurance Benefit (DIB) or Social Security Insurance (SSI) claim, or if you have had your initial claim denied, let us help you get the benefits you have coming to you.

- Products Liability

Countless personal injuries arise from the use of defective products that are proven to be unreasonably dangerous to consumers. Products liability is an area of the law which holds a product manufacturer and sellers or distributors of that product liable for injury caused by such a negligently manufactured, designed, or product with inadequate warnings. Our experienced consumer product injury claims attorneys will assist the injured victims with their potential injury claims and recover damages they are entitled to under the law.

- Inadequate Premises Liability

Property owners, whether they are hotel, grocery store or nightclub owners, are required by law to take reasonable care to keep their premises safe or to warn people of known dangers that are not obvious. When this does not happen and you are injured in an accident or in a crime because of unsafe premises or inadequate security, the law gives people the right to seek compensation against the property owner. This is premises liability law.

 Soft Tissue Injuries after an Automobile Accident

Many people believe that the seriousness of a passenger's injuries in an automobile accident may be discerned from the extent to which the automobile has been damaged. That is, if the damage to the car is minimal, then the injuries suffered by the passengers must be minimal, too.
