Motorcycle accidents are all too common in Augusta, Georgia. These accidents can result in serious injuries and even death.

At Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, our motorcycle accident attorneys can examine your case and advise you on the necessary steps to protect your rights.
Our firm has handled thousands of motorcycle and automobile accident claims involving negligence. Compensation for injured motorcycle accident victims can include:
Any monetary recovery will depend on the extent of your injury, the strength of your case, the relevant law that applies to your situation, the location of your accident and other factors. If you have been in any accident that you believe involved negligence, contact an attorney at Montlick and Associates for a consultation as to what options you may have to pursue compensation.
If another driver caused your accident, you will need to prove that the other party failed to exercise reasonable care in the operation of his/her vehicle or, in other words, was negligent. Further, the injured person must establish that the lack of care was the cause of the injury Proving negligence is not always easy – accident scenes can be cleared, witnesses may leave and the injured person may not yet realize how the crash occurred. That is why it is important to take action as soon as possible. Our motorcycle accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, work quickly on behalf of our clients to find out what happened in their accident, to preserve evidence, and meet the legal deadlines that are part of any personal injury case.
In some instances, a defect in your motorcycle or the other party’s vehicle can be the cause of your accident. It is possible that a part did not work as it was supposed to or just did not work at all and the result was a motor vehicle crash. It is not unusual for multiple vehicles to be involved with several people injured. In these cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the maker of the motorcycle or car, or the manufacturer of the defective part. Once again, early and complete investigation and preservation of the vehicles can be critical to proving what caused the accident.
Georgia is a modified comparative fault state, meaning that you can seek coverage for your accident-related losses so long as you were less than 50 percent at fault for the crash. If you were partially at fault for your accident, your monetary recovery may be reduced by your percentage of fault. In other situations, an insurance company may allege that you are at fault for your accident when you were not.
Our attorneys at Montlick & Associates routinely obtain and preserve evidence, interview witnesses in cases where liability is in dispute, track down accident reports, and recover other documentation in an effort to prove fault of other drivers or companies who caused injuries to our clients. Doing so helps us maximize the value of our clients’ cases within the bounds of the law and based on the circumstances of what happened.
