Personal Injury & Car Accident Lawyers in Macon Georgia
Over 35 Years of Experience
When you are involved in a serious car accident or you are the victim of a violent crime, you may face difficult circumstances, including a long course of physical recovery, difficulty managing your bills and extreme stress that may interfere with your family interactions. Most people never think that they will need to hire Macon personal injury attorneys because they do not anticipate being the victim of a negligent driver or criminal assailant. When a Macon injury victim experiences the challenges of trying to pay the bills while off work, the process of fighting with an insurance company for fair compensation can be even more stressful. Because many injury victims have never had to deal with an insurance company, they are unfamiliar with the sharp practices used by insurance companies to avoid liability on claims. Our experienced Macon personal injury lawyers at Montlick and Associates have been providing effective legal representation to victims of accidents and criminal attacks in Macon for nearly three decades.
While our Macon personal injury law firm has a long history of effectively representing hundreds of personal injury victims, we are founded on the principle that the legal profession is a service oriented profession so we do not treat our clients with the indifference of a mega-law firm or employ a cookie cutter approach to the practice of law. Our law firm has built its reputation on innovative legal strategies and persuasive presentation of the facts. We are qualified to handle virtually all types of Macon personal injury cases, including but not limited to the following:
Macon Auto Accident Claims: Any type of motor vehicle accident can result in serious injury or the loss of someone you love. Almost 33,000 people per year die in fatal motor vehicle accidents. Many of these accidents are caused by drivers who fail to take reasonable care to obey traffic laws, pay attention to the road or abstain from consuming alcohol before driving. When drivers fail to show the courtesy and responsibility to make Macon roadways safe, our Macon motor vehicle accident law firm is committed to holding negligent Macon drivers accountable for the injuries they cause.
Macon Slip and Fall Accidents: During tough economic times, commercial business owners often cut costs to increase profits. Sometimes these cost-cutting measures result in lax maintenance or insufficient employees to ensure that the premises are kept safe. When a patron slips on a spilled liquid that has been left on the floor because no one bothered to periodically investigate the store for hazards, or an employee decided to disregard the spill, an unsuspecting customer may be entitled to compensation for injuries when they experience a Macon slip and fall accident caused by this easily remedied hazard. Whether you are injured on a residential, commercial or public property, the Macon slip and fall attorneys at Montlick and Associates may be able obtain the compensation you need so that you can focus on your recovery.
Macon Dog Maulings (Dog Bites): It is a common perception that a dog bite incident is an insignificant injury that hardly ever requires medical attention. This false sense of security is simply not supported by the statistics regarding dog attacks. Approximately a thousand people a day are sent to emergency rooms throughout the U.S. because of dog attack incidents. A dog attack can leave deep physical and emotional scares that may take years to heal. Our Macon dog bite attorneys understand that dog bite incidents can cause major injuries; we are committed to diligently seeking the compensation that our clients need to obtain reconstructive surgery, psychological counseling and more.
Macon Nursing Home Abuse Neglect Victims: When your loved one is the victim of abuse in a nursing home, or the nursing home fails to provide for your loved ones basic needs, the nursing home may be liable for mistreatment of nursing home residents. The thought of our elderly loved ones being mistreated is disturbing. Unfortunately, industry surveys of nursing home staff members reveal that even they know that abuse of the elderly in residential facilities is a serious problem. Seniors are among societies most vulnerable because their living situation makes it difficult to defend themselves against the caregivers that are paid to provide for their needs. If your elderly loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect while in a Macon elderly residential facility, our experienced Macon nursing home law firm has been fighting for nursing home victims for almost three decades.
Macon Tractor-Trailer (Macon Trucking Accidents): The trucking industry has recently undergone extensive regulatory changes covering such issues as cell phone use while driving, anti-fatigue rules and mandatory screening prior to hiring a driver. A Macon trucking accident lawyer must pay careful attention to these ever changing regulations, trucking industry practices and the preservation of evidence in Macon tractor-trailer accidents. Our Macon tractor-trailer accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates are well aware that the massive size of tractor-trailer combinations poses unique risk to passenger vehicle drivers, motorcycle riders, bicyclists and pedestrians. Our Macon trucking accident law firm has the experience to handle the most sophisticated Macon trucking accident collision claims.
Macon Wrongful Death Claims: Wrongful death law in Macon and elsewhere throughout the state is a specialized form of recovery. Georgia’s wrongful death statute is the legal tool used by our Macon wrongful death attorneys to seek money for Macon families who lose a loved one to the willful, negligent or reckless conduct of others. A wrongful death lawsuit may be based on many types of wrongful actions that result in fatalities, including but not limited to car crashes caused by drunk or distracted drivers, trucking companies that fail to properly train their truck driver, anesthesiologists who commit medical malpractice or virtually any other kind of malfeasance or non-feasance. If someone you love has died because of the wrongful conduct of another, our experienced Macon wrongful death lawyers may be able to help you obtain money for you and your family.
Macon on the Job Injuries (Workers Compensation): If you suffer a job related injury, it can be one of the most difficult experiences in your life. A Macon injury victim must navigate a workers’ compensation system where insurance carriers frequently deny legitimate claims, stall paying income replacement benefits, deny approval of essential medical care and attempt to settle claims for pennies on the dollar to unrepresented workers. Our experienced Macon workers’ compensation attorneys understand the tactics used by insurance companies to avoid paying the full value of your claim. We are dedicated to fighting for the full value of our clients’ workers’ compensation claims and may even be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party to obtain additional compensation.
Macon Motorcycle Collisions: Motorcycle riders often are unfairly stereotyped as daredevils or reckless gang members who fail to conduct themselves in a safe prudent manner. Despite the lack of truth to these characterizations, many insurance companies try to shift the blame for a Macon motorcycle accident to the rider. The reality is that many motorcyclists on Macon roads are injured by inattentive drivers. The injuries suffered in a Macon motorcycle crash can be devastating and have a permanent impact on your mobility, verbal ability, cognitive skills and other basic functions. Our Macon motorcycle accident lawyers understand the enormous costs of medical and rehabilitative care associated with such serious injuries and zealously pursue the money recovery that victims of serious injuries will need to rebuild their lives.
Macon Product Liability Attorneys: The manufacturers, distributors and retailers of consumer products have a legal duty to ensure that the products they place on the market are reasonably safe for consumers. Sometimes companies that produce products do not conduct adequate safety tests or take shortcuts in the manufacturing process that can result in serious injury or wrongful death to consumers. A Macon product liability claim is the most effective way to hold those responsible accountable and prevent future injuries caused by unsafe products. If you or a family member has been injured by a faulty product, our experienced Macon product liability attorneys may be able to seek money damages from the manufacturer, distributer or retailer.
Macon Construction Injuries: Construction projects in Macon can be hazardous places to work, visit or even pass by. The broad range of potential dangers on a Macon construction site include falls from scaffoldings and ladders, electrocution from exposed electrical wires, injuries from defective power tools, falling objects and negligently operated heavy equipment. If you suffer injury on a Macon construction project, our experienced Macon construction accident lawyers typically investigate the viability of both a workers’ compensation claim against our client’s employer and a personal injury claim against third parties.
Macon Pedestrian Accidents: When drivers text on an iPod or talk on a cell phone and run down a pedestrian in an intersection, the result can be life-threatening injuries. Drivers have a legal duty to exercise reasonable care in crowded areas, intersections and school zones where there is a high probability that pedestrians will enter the roadway. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include disregarding a pedestrian in a cross walk, driving while intoxicated or distracted, failing to obey traffic signals or stop signs and speeding. If you or a close family member is injured or dies because of the lack of care shown by the driver of a motor vehicle, the Macon pedestrian accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates may be able to investigate your accident to determine the best strategy for obtaining a fair monetary recovery.
