Gilmer County Tour Bus and Tractor-Trailer Accident

October 31, 2016

Gilmer County Tour Bus and Tractor-Trailer Accident Leaves One Man Dead and Others Injured

It is not every day that you see a trucking accident that involves both a tractor-trailer and a tour bus. A recent Gilmer County accident demonstrated that two extremely large vehicles have the potential to do a lot of damage and cause severe and sometimes fatal injuries. As a tour bus was traveling northbound on Whitestone Road in the northern Georgia county of Gilmer, a tractor trailer attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Georgia state road 515. As the truck driver attempted to turn left, he had to stop to allow oncoming traffic to pass before completing his turn. The truck was stationary in the northbound lane of Whitestone Road while it waited for traffic to pass, and was directly in the path of the northbound tour bus.

Teenage Brothers Suffer Fatal Injuries Following South Fulton County Car Accident

Teenage Brothers Suffer Fatal Injuries Following South Fulton County Car Accident

Many car accidents will bring more questions than answers. Some accidents can seem inexplicable, and it may be extremely difficult to know what went wrong. It can take months if not years to fully understand how and why an accident has occurred. A recent accident in South Fulton County has left three College Park teens dead. Two of the three victims were brothers, and all of the teenagers had been celebrating Homecoming at their former high school shortly before the accident occurred. There are very few details known about the accident, but what is clear is that the young men who lost their lives too soon had bright futures ahead of them.

Proposal to Allow Self-Driven Vehicles without a Licensed Driver in the Vehicle

October 29, 2016

Atlanta Defective Auto Accident Attorneys Consider Proposal to Allow Self-Driven Vehicles without a Licensed Driver in the Vehicle

Commercial airlines currently are equipped with an auto-pilot feature that can take control of the aircraft and fly the plane without input from the pilots. Despite this capability, passengers might be more apprehensive about flying if they knew the plane was not equipped with a qualified pilot ready to take control in the event of an emergency. It probably is reasonable to assume that many people would have the same hesitancy about car, trucks, and SUVs traveling the roads of Atlanta and the surrounding areas of Georgia without a licensed driver in the vehicle. Although self-driven vehicles have been a forgone conclusion for some time, many traffic safety experts assumed a licensed driver would be required to sit behind the wheel. In this blog article, our Atlanta defective auto accident attorneys examine a new proposal that could have vehicles without drivers occupying U.S. roadways.

Alarming Trend of Uber Asking Patrons to Waive Liability for Injury or Death

Atlanta Auto Collision Lawyers Analyze Alarming Trend of Uber Asking Patrons to Waive Liability for Injury or Death

Our Atlanta auto collision lawyers recently wrote a blog about Uber using driverless vehicles to provide rides in certain test markets.

The Importance of a Vehicle Door Latch During a Collision

October 27, 2016

Georgia Car Accident Lawyers Discuss the Importance of a Vehicle Door Latch during a Collision

While any serious motor vehicle accident poses a risk of causing severe injury, this danger is magnified when a vehicle occupant is ejected. There is a much higher probability of suffering catastrophic injuries if someone is ejected from a car, truck, or SUV. More than three out of four people ejected in a fatal crash die because of their injuries, according to the CDC. Some vehicle ejections are the product of faulty car door latches. Manufacturers of motor vehicles consider vehicle doors to be an essential part of the overall structural strength of the vehicle. It is reasonable to assume that car doors would be designed and manufactured to ensure that they are capable of withstanding the pressure and impact of a typical car accident. Unfortunately, many car door latching mechanisms are not designed to withstand the impact of a typical car crash. In this article, our Georgia car accident lawyers analyze the risk posed by substandard door latches.

The Duty of Care Auto Repair Facilities Owe Customers

October 26, 2016

Atlanta Car Accident Lawyers Discuss the Duty of Care Auto Repair Facilities Owe Customers

Although most people associate car accidents with careless and inattentive drivers, sometimes collisions occur because of a vehicle malfunctions. When a tire blowout or brake failure results in a collision, an auto repair facility can be liable for injuries caused by inadequate repair work or a failure to notify the customer of unsafe conditions. A fundamental issue in evaluating the potential liability of a vehicle repair station is the appropriate standard of care owed to the customer. In this blog article, our Atlanta car accident lawyers provide an overview of the nature and scope of the standard of care owed by a business that performs mechanical repairs for a vehicle owner. There are three primary issues that must be considered when investigating the liability of an auto service center:

The Hoboken Train Accident and What May Have Gone Wrong

October 25, 2016

Georgia Train Accident Attorney Discusses Hoboken Train Accident and What May Have Gone Wrong

Train accidents seem to be occurring with more frequency over the past few years. While many of the train accidents do not involve injuries, a few train accidents have resulted in significant injuries and deaths. A recent transit train accident in Hoboken, New Jersey has reminded us yet again how catastrophic train accidents can be. On a seemingly normal Monday morning, a transit train came barreling into the Hoboken terminal at 21 miles per hour, twice the speed limit. The train slammed into the station's platform, and part of the roof collapsed onto the train. The accident left one person dead and hundreds more injured.

While the cause of the Hoboken accident is yet to be determined, many people will agree that something must have gone horribly wrong for such a tragic accident to occur.

Georgia Auto Collision Injury Lawyers Review Disturbing Report Revealing a Substantial Rise in Traffic Fatalities

Our Georgia auto collision injury lawyers laud traffic safety improvements, such as roadways with safer designs and vehicles equipped with more safety equipment. These types of innovations have contributed to significant declines in traffic fatalities in recent years, but a new report indicates a sharp increase in auto accident fatalities during the first six months of 2016.

Short-Term Leased Truck Collision Risks in Georgia

October 20, 2016

Atlanta Rental Truck Accident Lawyer Analyzes Short-Term Leased Truck Collision Risks

The constant influx of people relocating throughout the Atlanta-Metro area results in many families renting moving trucks to facilitate their relocation. When renting a moving truck or trailer, most customers presume that the vehicles are properly maintained and safe. However, the failure of truck rental companies to conduct proper maintenance can lead to tires that exhibit excessive wear, dry rot, or improper tire pressure; deteriorated brakes that fail or malfunction; and other dangerous forms of equipment failure. In other situations, companies that rent large trucks for moving or transportation of cargo fail to adequately screen lessees, so these massive vehicles are entrusted to drivers with a history of motor vehicle accidents and moving violations.

Rise in Traffic Fatalities in Early 2016

October 19, 2016

Georgia Trucking and Car Accident Attorney Discusses the Rise in Traffic Fatalities in Early 2016

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently released alarming information that all drivers and passengers should be aware of. While traffic accidents are a daily occurrence across the United States, many of us still feel pretty safe when traveling this country's roadways. However, according to the NHTSA, the number of traffic fatalities increased significantly from January to June of this year as compared to the first six months of 2015. Additionally, 2015 recorded the largest increase in traffic fatalities in 50 years, demonstrating that traffic fatalities are on the rise when they should be on the decline.

October 18, 2016

Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, Answer FAQs about SUVs and Rollovers

Today, many cars are equipped with various safety features to reduce the likelihood of injury and death to passengers in the event of an accident. However, there are some vehicles, especially SUVs, that are still dangerous even though they are touted as being more safe than other cars. Why? Because some SUVs are prone to rollover accidents, meaning that they are more susceptible than other vehicles to tipping over and landing either on their side or roof. With this in mind, our Atlanta Car Accident Attorneys at Montlick & Associates have put together a list of most frequently asked questions regarding SUVs and rollover accidents.

Overview of Preventable Infections and Surgical Errors

October 17, 2016

Atlanta Medical Malpractice and Negligence Attorneys Provide Overview of Preventable Infections and Surgical Errors

Many people throughout Atlanta and the surrounding areas of Georgia place their faith in surgical teams and hospitals on a daily basis. Surgical patients presume that their surgeon and the rest of their medical team will exercise a high level of skill and expertise. Most surgeons rise to the standard of care expected in their profession. However, surgical mistakes and preventable infections are much more common than most surgical patients realize. Despite efforts to reduce the number of surgical errors in recent years, surgical mistakes and infections in and out of the operating room remain a serious problem. According to the Archives of Surgery, five to ten surgical errors occur in the U.S. each and every day.

Answer to Questions About Back-Up Accident Claims in Georgia

October 16, 2016

Georgia Auto Collision Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Regarding Back-Up Accidents

Many people underestimate the frequency and risk posed by motor vehicles that are backing up, but these types of collisions can be fatal for small children. While any vehicle blind spot is dangerous because it limits a driver's ability to perceive and respond to hazards, blind spots behind the rear of a vehicle are particularly problematic. Most motorists only think about blind spots adjacent to a motor vehicle, but those blind spots can at least be visually checked if a driver turns and looks through the windows of the vehicle. Blind spots directly behind a vehicle cannot be checked either by turning and looking or through the use of a mirror. The popularity of lifted trucks and SUVs with larger rear blind spots has only increased the danger to small children. In this blog article, our experienced Atlanta auto collision lawyers have provided answers to common questions about back-up accidents.

Motorcycle Helmets That Fail to Meet DOT Safety Standards Can Pose Serious Safety Risks

October 15, 2016

Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Remind Riders Motorcycle Helmets That Fail to Meet DOT Safety Standards Can Pose Serious Safety Risks

If you have ever been involved in a motorcycle accident or had a near miss, you know the importance of having a helmet. When you lay your bike down, the probability of your head impacting the roadway is extremely high. A helmet can prevent traumatic brain injuries and fatalities. Head injuries are the leading cause of wrongful death in motorcycle collisions. However, novelty helmets that do not meet Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards have become increasingly popular. While these helmets may be aesthetically appealing, riders who prioritize a stylish appearance often pay a high price in terms of safety.

Train Safety in Wake of the Hoboken, New Jersey Train Crash

October 14, 2016

Our Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers Discuss Train Safety in Wake of Hoboken, NJ Train Crash

Recently, a busy commuter train, as it was pulling into the historic Hoboken, New Jersey train station, was unable to stop, crashing full speed into the platform and tragically killing one person while injuring over 100 others. An investigation remains underway as to the underlying cause of this tragedy. While this accident is extremely tragic, it does serve as a stark reminder of some of the measures we all can take to remain safe around trains and train tracks.

What Causes Train Accidents?

There are several causes of train accidents that occur each year in the U.S. These include, among others:

• Human factors
• Defective or broken tracks
• Equipment defects
• Signal defects
• Operator error

How Can You Stay Safe Around Trains?

In the United States, several thousand people are injured and hundreds die each year due to train accidents. Unfortunately, these numbers continue to be on the rise. In fact, nationwide statistics suggest that approximately every two hours, a railroad-related accident occurs in the United States. With this in mind, our Atlanta train accident attorneys encourage you to consider the following lifesaving train safety tips, among others:

  • Always be careful and watch your step as you enter or exit a train.
  • Be sure to watch the gap between the platform edge and the train and be mindful of it as you enter and exit the train.
  • Stand away from the edges of a platform at all times.
  • Always cross train tracks at designated pedestrian crossings.
  • Stay alert around trains. Do not text, use headphones or engage in any other types of distractions that can prevent you from hearing an oncoming train.
  • Remember that trains cannot stop as quickly as cars and other lighter vehicles. Be sure to yield the right of way to a train when in your car since a train engineer cannot immediately yield to you.
  • Always use handholds when standing on a moving train.
  • Never cross train tracks when the signals are down.
  • Do not walk on tracks except at designated crossings.

October 08, 2016

Atlanta Car Accident Lawyers Discuss How Defective Airbags Can Turn a Minor Collision into a Serious Accident

While there have been enormous safety improvements in recent years aimed at reducing the number of motor vehicle accidents and the severity of injuries, sometimes defective safety equipment in passenger cars, SUVs and pickup trucks can increase the risk of serious injury. Airbags are a vital safety component of most vehicles and provide supplemental protection to seatbelts when drivers are involved in a collision. However, defective airbags can increase the extent of the injury suffered in a collision or even cause permanent brain injuries in a low-impact collision.

Important Answers Regarding Georgia Tractor-Trailer Accidents

October 07, 2016

Georgia Trucking Accident Lawyers Provide Important Answers Regarding Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Tractor-trailer or commercial trucking accidents are unique among traffic collisions because of the degree of carnage caused and the complexity involved in trucking accident claims. Victims of trucking collisions sometimes assume that these claims, which involve a large vehicle, are more or less akin to any other motor vehicle claim. This mistaken assumption can adversely impact a trucking accident claim.

Dishonest Tactics Auto Insurance Companies Use to Minimize Claims

October 05, 2016

Georgia Auto Collision Injury Lawyers Discuss Unfair and Dishonest Tactics Auto Insurance Companies Use to Minimize Claims

If you are involved in a car accident in Atlanta or the surrounding areas of Georgia, you could suffer serious injuries or even the tragic loss of a loved one. When you suffer injury in a serious auto collision caused by a negligent driver, you can normally pursue a claim against the at fault driver to obtain compensation for your injuries. The other driver's insurance company usually defends its insured against the claim and indemnifies its insured within policy limits. It is important to understand the incentives of the other driver's insurance company. The carrier's objective is to pay the minimum number of claims and the smallest amount of compensation possible in order to increase insurance company profits. Insurance companies have teams of attorneys, accident reconstruction experts, and a wealth of resources that they use to minimize the recovery of accident victims. They handle tens of thousands of claims each year, so they have an enormous wealth of experience in avoiding or minimizing liability claims.

Man Fleeing Police Crashing Killing One Person on I-85

October 05, 2016

Date Published: October, 5, 2016
By: Jason Saltzman, Associate Attorney

Jackson County, Ga., (JacksonHeraldToday) - A fatal accident on I-85 South occurred after a person who was stopped for a traffic violation attempted to flee police. The driver of an Audi A4 was pulled over near mile point 145.5.

Initially, the vehicle left the interstate at the Jefferson exit. It then entered onto Hwy. 129 North, but then got on Interstate I-85 once more, driving in the wrong direction on the southbound side. Police made every attempt to warn on-coming vehicles of the dangers in front of them to in order to help them avoid serious accidents.

Officers found the driver of the Audi had perished after the car collided with a Subaru. A resident of Newport News, Virginia, he was not strapped in his seatbelt, and was tragically killed. The 23-year old had a license that was revoked and several warrants out for his arrest and apprehension in his home state. The warrants were all for miscellaneous traffic charges.

Deputies also identified illegal drugs and a handgun that was stolen in the car.

The man who was driving the Subaru, a resident of Alto, was taken to a Gainesville medical center for what were thankfully deemed non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation is underway, and a blood test will be performed on the driver of the Audi to determine whether or not he was under the influence at the time of the accident.

A southbound lane of I-85 was closed to traffic for almost three hours while the investigation took place.

October 04, 2016

Georgia Auto Accident Attorneys Discuss Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim Against a Business Owner for a Car Accident Caused by a Negligent Worker

If you are involved in a collision with a delivery driver or anyone else engaged in employment related functions, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation from both the motorist and the driver's employer. Respondeat superior is the legal principle that authorizes holding an employer liable for the negligent acts of employees. The Latin term translates into "let the employer answer." This legal doctrine refers to a form of vicarious liability imposed on employers for the negligent acts of employees. This legal principle may facilitate naming a corporation or other business entity as a defendant in a case involving a negligent car accident caused by the company's employee. In this blog article, our auto collision attorneys discuss the liability of employers for injuries caused by the driving of their careless or inattentive employees.

How Georgia's Move-Over Law Prevents Many Serious Car Accidents

October 03, 2016

Georgia Car Accident Lawyers Explain How Georgia's Move-Over Law Prevents Many Serious Car Accidents

If you travel the streets of Atlanta or Georgia freeways, you have almost certainly experienced the sudden traffic slowdowns that occur when there are emergency vehicles with flashing lights on the side of the roadway. These interruptions in the flow of traffic often result from traffic accidents, vehicles pulled over for traffic violations, vehicle breakdowns, or roadwork. When emergency responders, law enforcement officers, and construction workers exit their vehicles on the side of the roadway, they are extremely vulnerable to negligent drivers. Our car accident lawyers explain the importance of obeying Georgia's move-over law to prevent deadly collisions, involving officers, tow truck drivers, and others performing job-related functions by the side of the road.

Tire Issues That Could Cause Serious Auto Accidents

October 02, 2016

Car Accident Lawyers in Georgia Remind Motorists That Tire Issues Can Cause Serious Auto Accidents

Most collisions in Atlanta involving cars, trucks, and SUVs are the result of drivers who are negligent. This negligence may take the form of violating traffic safety laws, driver inattention, or otherwise unsafe driving conduct. However, there are other motor vehicle collisions in the Atlanta metro region caused by poor vehicle maintenance or defective vehicle equipment. Tire blowouts because of inadequate tire maintenance or defective tires are responsible for many serious car accidents. Our Gwinnett County car accident lawyers have provided an overview of some basic tire maintenance issues, among others, that can cause a serious traffic collision.

Benefits of Passenger Restrictions to Prevent Teen Traffic Fatalities

October 01, 2016

Georgia Car Accident Lawyers Note the Benefits of Passenger Restrictions to Prevent Teen Traffic Fatalities

There are a growing number of states, such as Georgia, that impose limits on the ability of inexperienced teen drivers to transport friends in their vehicle. These restrictions are designed to prevent a key driving distraction that might contribute to car accidents involving teenage drivers. The restrictions apply to teen drivers who receive a provisional driver's license in Georgia. The other purpose of these restrictions is to discourage groups of teenagers from consuming alcohol and then climbing into a motor vehicle together. This type of restriction is increasingly common in many states, and a study offers compelling evidence that the limitation imposed on new teen drivers saves lives.
