WHY CHOOSE MONTLICK FOR YOUR TRUCK ACCIDENT ATTORNEY?

More than 40 years of experience.

Montlick has a strong reputation for a reason. Over the years, we’ve earned it as the firm that WINS for our clients and puts their needs first.

Billions of dollars recovered for clients.

We can’t stop car accidents from happening, but we can minimize their long-term impact. Montlick’s attorneys have recovered billions of dollars for clients just like you who need support after an injury.

Due to their sheer size, large trucks are among the most dangerous vehicles on the roadways. If you’ve been involved in an accident with one, you may be facing critical or life-threatening injuries. If the accident with a large truck was not your fault, you may be entitled to money to cover your medical expenses and more.

After your accident, a long and complex legal battle lies ahead. Large truck corporations have teams of lawyers and insurance agents who know every loophole there is to get out of paying you. Trucking corporations want to pay you the lowest amount possible.

You deserve more than that. You deserve Montlick.

Real Legal Help Begins Here.

The Representation You Need
We take on the corporations and work aggressively to recover the compensation you need for your medical treatments, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. We’ve been providing this service to our clients for decades–let us help you next.

The Empathy You Deserve
Nothing is more challenging than trusting someone else with your case. The most common complaint of people who hire other firms is that they are left in the dark on their case. Their lawyers don’t call them back, they don’t answer their questions fully, they fast-talk and don’t take the time to explain what’s happening —and that’s assuming these firms even bother to call their clients back. This isn’t how we do things at Montlick. We communicate compassionately, frequently, and transparently. We work for you.

We Are Your Advocates When:

  • You’re unable to work
  • Your injuries are keeping you from daily tasks
  • You’re unsure of where to turn
  • Your insurance company offers a lowball settlement

We Don't Settle for Less. Neither Should You.

Get the money you deserve after a truck accident.

Do I Need an Attorney?

Generally speaking, getting a Montlick truck accident attorney in Conyers is worth it. With a Montlick attorney, you can be sure that years of experience, knowledge and legal expertise are fighting for you at every turn, always with your best interest in mind. Plus, there is ZERO upfront cost to you. Montlick is on your side after an accident. Even minor accidents can cause injuries that have the potential to be a problem for years to come. And trust us, that’s worth pursuing a claim.

Evidence is Everything. We Take Steps to Protect It.

It’s essential to act quickly after an accident involving a big rig. Trucking companies have insurance agents who will do everything possible to minimize your payment. Insurance companies will even go as far as to send their own investigators to the active crash scene, compromising evidence and causing some to be lost for good– sometimes accidentally, sometimes intentionally. After the trauma of an accident, the last injustice you need is to receive less money than you deserve because the trucking company responsible for your injuries did a lousy job preserving evidence.

When you contact Montlick Injury Attorneys immediately after your accident, we will do everything possible to ensure the evidence you need to win is preserved, safeguarded, and leveraged. Trucking companies work fast, but our Conyers personal injury attorneys work faster.

You can count on Montlick Injury Attorneys to safeguard critical evidence by:

  • Evidence Preservation Notice: When you become a Montlick client after a trucking accident, one of our most important and immediate acts is to send legal demands to the trucking company that the truck in question is needed for evidence, and they cannot tamper with it until our own investigators have had a chance to inspect it.
  • Capturing footage of the scene as soon as possible: Our investigators will document any visible damage to the vehicles involved in the crash and any skid marks left on the road. If applicable, we’ll even take photos of weather conditions that might have contributed to the accident. When applicable, our investigators also track down security camera footage or police body cam footage that can help to prove a case.
  • Speaking with witnesses: Your attorney will work hard to track down valuable witnesses to your accident. This could include other motorists involved and first responders.
  • Collecting all relevant medical records: Medical records are essential for establishing damages in a personal injury lawsuit. We ensure they’re preserved promptly to remain valid throughout your legal proceedings.
  • Capturing black box data: The information in a truck’s black box can be precious in helping to prove the cause of the accident and assign responsibility. Reconstruction experts rely heavily on the black box data to piece together the events that led to the accident. We’ll fight to ensure this data doesn’t get deleted.

Who Could Be Held Responsible for Your Conyers Trucking Accident?

Determining negligence and liability is essential. There are countless ways that the truck accident that caused your injuries could have happened, meaning multiple parties could share the blame for your damages. For instance, suppose the trucker was forced to drive by their employer in a way that violated Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. You might have a claim against the trucking company as well.

Trucking companies often feel pressured to overwork their drivers. Combine long hours with the poor sleep quality of resting on the road, and you get thousands of fatigued truck drivers on Georgia’s highways daily. Sleep deprived drivers pose severe risks to others on the road. A study published by the National Sleep Foundation reported that 21% of all fatal crashes involved a drowsy driver.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator has sponsored studies to determine the severity of truck driver fatigue. Multiple studies have revealed that:

Other ways trucking companies could potentially be responsible for Conyers truck accidents include:

  • Hiring untrained drivers or failing to properly train drivers
  • Failure to ensure a driver has the proper professional driver’s license and clean driving record
  • Hiring drivers with disqualifying criminal records
  • Lack of screening of drivers for alcohol or drug use
  • Failure to ensure drivers are physically fit to handle long driving shifts
  • Violations of weight and load requirements
  • Poor adherence to hours of service (HOS) rules
  • Failure to properly maintain trucks
  • Failure to accurately log all HOS hours for drivers

Our injury lawyers understand how to navigate and litigate trucking accident cases and are experienced at handling all aspects of a trucking injury case. We hold negligent drivers and trucking companies accountable when they contribute to an accident and injury.

What to do After Being Injured in a Truck Accident in Conyers

The most important thing following a truck accident is your safety. If you can, check yourself and others for injuries, then get to a safe place away from the crash, such as the sidewalk. Call 911 and request medical attention immediately. Even if you are not severely injured, injuries that are initially invisible to the naked eye may present later.

If able, make sure to:

  • Take pictures of the scene of the accident
  • Get contact information from witnesses
  • File a police report
  • Tell your insurance company
  • Get in touch with a Montlick attorney for your free consultation

In the days following the accident, there are a few things that you can do to help your Montlick attorney with the process of filing your claim:

  • Go to a follow-up doctor’s appointment and make sure they know the injury was caused by an accident
  • Save all receipts, bills and documents related to your accident
  • Tell your insurance company

Remember that both your and the other party’s insurance company will try to speak with you after your accident. Only do so with your attorney present.

Time is of The Essence in a Truck Accident Case.

Act quickly to obtain legal representation. Without it, the insurance companies will likely send you a lowball offer, since their concern is keeping money in their own pockets and not your well-being. We’ll work tirelessly to get you fair compensation. A Montlick accident lawyer will use their negotiating power and years of knowledge and experience to help you obtain substantially greater compensation than they would if you tried to take on the powerful trucking and insurance companies alone.

Since claims against trucking companies and commercial insurance carriers can be complicated issues of state and federal law, you need a trial-tested attorney you can trust. At Montlick, our lawyers are willing to go the distance to win the total value of our client’s claim.
