Atlanta Georgia Personal Injury Lawyer
When a person suffers serious injury or the loss of a loved one, it is essential to consult a Atlanta Georgia personal injury lawyer promptly because pursuing a personal injury claim is time sensitive. There are many issues that must be dealt with promptly, including obtaining medical diagnosis and treatment, preserving key evidence, securing the identity of witnesses, and dealing with the insurance company in a way that does not compromise your Atlanta personal injury case. An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your legal claim, advise you of your options, and take actions to preserve your legal right to financial compensation.
Personal injuries are virtually any form of mental or physical injury caused by the wrongful actions of another. These wrongful forms of conduct may be negligent acts, such as car accidents or intentional acts like rape or physical assault. When you suffer a personal injury, it can be extremely difficult to establish a value in dollars for your injuries and resulting accident claim. There are many factors that may impact the value of your personal injury claim, such as the severity and permanence of your injuries, the amount of your medical bills, lost wages and income, future lost earning capacity, the nature of the wrongful conduct and other factors. There is no formula that a court uses to determine your damages so it is important to have an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney who can persuasively advocate on your behalf regarding the relevant considerations in determining your damages. Our experienced Atlanta personal injury attorneys often can estimate the potential value of a client’s case based on handling many prior cases as well as researching other similar past cases.
Atlanta Auto Accidents (Motor Vehicle Collisions): When you are injured by a driver who is intoxicated, tailgating, speeding, texting or otherwise failing to comply with traffic safety laws, you may suffer permanent life-changing injuries. Insurance carriers handle thousands of claims each year so they are adept at stonewalling, refusing to pay the full value of a claim, and attempting to shift the responsibility for a car accident case to the injury victim. Whether you are involved in a car accident, truck accident (i.e. tractor-trailer accident), motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, busing accident, SUV rollover or pedestrian accident, the dedicated Atlanta motor vehicle accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand you may be experiencing physical and emotional hardships that make it difficult to focus on complying with legal and insurance matters. We handle these pragmatic matters so that our clients can devote their efforts and attention to a full and prompt recovery.
Atlanta Wrongful Death Actions: When your loved one is taken from you because of the negligent or intentional act of an individual, corporation or public entity, the impact can shatter a family both emotionally and financially. When a person dies because of the unreasonably careless conduct or intentional misconduct of another, it is considered a wrongful death under Georgia law. While a legal claim for damages will not bring back the companionship and affection of a lost loved one, the law provides certain closely related family members with a process to seek financial compensation that can ease the financial burden of losing a family member and provide for a families’ future financial needs. Our compassionate and dedicated Atlanta wrongful death attorneys at Montlick and Associates are committed to helping families cope with the permanent loss of a loved one by seeking financial relief and holding wrongful parties accountable for their actions.
Atlanta Dog Bite Claims (Mauling and Dog Attack Incidents): Dog attacks, particularly those involving vicious breeds of dogs, account for some of the most horrific and traumatic injuries, especially when the victim of the attack is a young child. There are four and a half million people in the U.S. that suffer dog bites annually. Two in every ten people that are bitten require some form of medical attention while tens of thousands need reconstructive surgery to repair the damage. There are multiple liability theories for holding dog owners accountable for failing to prevent others from being injured by their dog, including negligence, knowledge of prior viciousness and leash law violations. At Montlick and Associates, our experienced Atlanta dog bite lawyers understand the deep physical and emotional scars that can result from an Atlanta dog attack, and we are committed to seeking the compensation dog mauling victims need to recover.
Atlanta Dangerous Product Claims: Although most consumers that purchase products never contemplate the possibility that the product will cause serious injury once they get it home, many products are rushed to the market by manufacturers in the U.S. and overseas without adequate quality control or testing. There are many types of defective products that have caused severe injuries and even wrongful death, including motor vehicles like SUVs prone to rollover, defective drugs, medical products like defibrillators and artificial hips, and toxic substances like toys with lead paint. If you experience an injury caused by a defective product, you may have a right to seek compensation for your injuries in an Atlanta product liability claim. It is important to preserve all parts and packaging when you call our Atlanta dangerous product injury attorneys.
Atlanta Slip, Trip and Fall – Premises Liability Cases: The area of law called premises liability defines the legal duty that landowners and tenants have to those who are injured in accidents or intentional incidents on their property. The most common form of premises liability claim by far is an Atlanta slip and fall or trip and fall accident. However, there are other types of premises liability claims, including injuries from machinery, attacks resulting from negligent security, false imprisonment by overzealous security guards and other incidents resulting in physical injury on the property of another. Our experienced Atlanta slip and fall attorneys investigate and analyze critical issues, such as whether the property owner was aware or should have been aware of the hazard, measures taken by the property owner to discover hazards, and remedial actions undertaken to remove hazards caused by unsafe conditions. Our Atlanta slip and fall attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand the careful, factual inquiry and analysis that must be conducted to define the scope of the duty of a property owner to make hazards safe and to determine if the property owner complied with that legal duty.

Whether you were injured in a workplace accident or a family member has suffered an occupational illness, we are committed to guiding clients through the workers' compensation process.

We may also file a personal injury claim to seek more extensive damages depending on the facts of your case.
Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse & Chronic Neglect: Nursing home care is expensive so most families presume that an Atlanta nursing home will provide their loved one with the promised level of care. Because seniors may become more physically frail, they may not have the physical strength to fight off physical assaults or sexual abuse. Those that prey on seniors also may exploit declining vision, hearing or mental faculties to commit acts of financial exploitation against elderly Atlanta nursing home residents. If you believe that your elderly loved one has been neglected or abused in a nursing home, our experienced Atlanta nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys are committed advocates for the right to financial compensation for victims of elder abuse.
