Auto Accident News

Serving Georgia For Over 36 Years

Our Georgia Auto Accident Lawyers at Montlick and Associates know that those who are involved in a car accident while traveling the streets and highways of Georgia typically have many questions about their options and remedies. Motor vehicles accidents can cause life-altering injuries or the loss of a loved one, regardless of whether you are a driver, passenger, motorcyclist or pedestrian. We have provided this blog to provide information about common causes of auto accidents as part of our 36-year commitment to helping families prevent injuries. It is our hope that reading about these real life experiences will help new drivers better understand the serious responsibilities and obligations that come with driving any car, truck, SUV, ATV, boat or other motor vehicle, and provide food for thought, including for discussions with family, as to steps that can be taken to avoid causing injuries or being injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. *

Montlick & Associates has a long history of public service through our Award Winning Public Service Programs, that fall under two main umbrellas: helping families prevent injuries and supporting our troops and their families. As personal injury lawyers we get to see first-hand the devastation caused by negligent drivers. We also often get to see how so many accidents can be avoided or injuries lessened by taking certain precautions. That was the impetus in 1987 for the development of our first safety program- Help Keep Kids Safe. Research shows that most accidents can be prevented through safety education and a little extra care. Over the years our safety efforts to help families prevent injuries have included weekly two minute family safety tip news segments broadcast on WSB-TV News in Atlanta, our Don’t Text and Drive Campaign, our Don’t Drink & Drive Campaign (started in 1984), our Child Passenger Safety Programs, an annual Teen Driver Academy as part of our partnership with the Safe America Foundation, our Booster Seat Campaign, Prom Safety events, Free Car Safety Checks, bringing driving simulators to teens, proactively supporting and lobbying for the passage of a law in Georgia to help prevent distracted driving, and our one of our newest programs that covers all aspects of vehicle safety and provides extensive videos on the proper use of car and booster seats.
