Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorneys
For almost thirty years, our experienced Alpharetta personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates has been dedicated to providing Alpharetta injury victims with effective, experienced legal representation and advocacy in all types of personal injury claims. Our Alpharetta personal injury attorneys and support staff continue to work diligently toward securing the best possible settlements or verdicts for our Alpharetta clients, whether experiencing personal injury through the intentional, indifferent or inattentive misconduct of a third party. Our legal strategies are tailored to the unique qualities of each client’s circumstances, and our firm is committed to securing compensation for significant injury or loss and to providing an avenue for injured parties to help overcome the physical, financial and psychological burdens often associated with such injury.
Since our founding in 1984, Montlick and Associates has recovered millions of dollars for thousands of clients, spanning a wide range of types of injury cases including motor vehicle collisions, falls, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse/neglect, defective products and a host of others. For our Alpharetta clients, the most common of these personal injury claims have included:
Alpharetta Auto Accidents: The most frequently occurring cause of personal injury claims is motor vehicle accidents. Such occurrences may involve any type of motorized vehicles as well as pedestrians, bicycles and other entities. Auto accidents are the leading cause of accident-related injury and wrongful death in Alpharetta and may be caused by many types of unsafe conduct, including speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, tailgating, or failure to properly acknowledge posted traffic signs or signals among others. Severe injuries are often suffered by motor vehicle accident victims, and these often entail very substantial financial obstacles and medical treatment. While our clients focus on their physical recovery, our Alpharetta auto accident team pursue our clients’ Alpharetta car accident claim and handle their insurance and legal issues.
Alpharetta Commercial Trucking Collisions: Tractor-trailer accidents present a specialized set of challenges for personal injury attorneys and the victims of these motor vehicle accidents. When transporting a full load of cargo, a commercial tractor-trailer may weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which highly compounds the potential force and effects involved in a collision and substantially increase the risk of wrongful death. Although the interstate and intrastate trucking industries are heavily regulated, trucking companies are sometimes motivated by increased revenues to disregard safety regulations and procedures, including the proper screening, training or supervision of their drivers. Extensive knowledge of trucking regulations and industry practices is required to effectively represent our Alpharetta clients in these matters, and our experienced trucking accident attorneys also are well versed in the various liability-avoidance practices of companies within the industry.
Alpharetta Motorcycle Accidents: While severe injury may result from any motor vehicle accident, motorcycles are much less stable vehicles and provide little physical protection in a collision, resulting in significantly higher fatality rates and/or catastrophic injuries often requiring extended rehabilitative care. Therewith, our Alpharetta accident attorneys engaging in motorcycle injury settlements and lawsuits always pursue the fullest extent of compensation possible.
Alpharetta Wrongful Death Claims: When losing someone you love in a motor vehicle or other serious accident, you may face heavy financial burdens and intense emotional loss. It is a fundamental tenet of law which prescribes that victims of injury due to unsafe or intentional misconduct of others should be compensated, even if they die as a result of their injuries. Our Alpharetta wrongful death legal team understands the complex challenges families encounter when they lose a loved one. Wrongful death actions can provide compensation that accident victims would have received had they survived; they may also provide to family members compensation for their own losses incurred because a loved one has been taken from them prematurely. Our dedicated team at Montlick and Associates is vigilant in pursuing the compensation our clients need.
Alpharetta Slips, Trips & Falls: The extent to which serious injuries can result from a slip/trip and fall accident continues to go largely unrecognized by many until it happens to them. As a patron of a Alpharetta business, it is reasonable to expect that a business proprietor will utilize reasonable safeguards and inspections for potential hazards and either correct those conditions or warn patrons of dangers which may not be readily apparent. Our attorneys have the experience necessary to investigate and identify hazards such as improper lighting, uneven flooring and other conditions which may increase the risk of a falling accident. If you are the victim of such an accident, you should not hesitate to contact us.
Alpharetta Construction Site Injuries: Alpharetta construction sites, as with such sites elsewhere, are often danger-filled workplaces with abundant in injury risks, including falls from ladders, roofs and scaffolding as well as accidents involving heavy machinery, such as loaders, backhoes, excavators, cranes and booms. Injuries may also result from exposure to hazardous substances or from fire or electrocution. Construction accident claims pose specialized issues such as identifying viable defendants for personal injury claims and preventing the disappearance of critical evidence from a site which may be in constant flux. Our Alpharetta construction accident attorneys understand the complexity of obstacles that must be navigated to pursue a construction accident claim effectively.
Alpharetta Workers’ Compensation Claims: A workers’ compensation claim in Alpharetta generally entails a no-fault basis for seeking workplace injury compensation. When an employee suffers a workplace injury, it can result in the need for significant medical care and disability from employment. While the workers’ compensation system does not require that one prove the negligence of an employer, it fails to provide certain substantive damages which may be available in a personal injury claim, such as impaired quality of life, pain and suffering, and punitive damages. Because it may provide the most comprehensive scope of recovery, our Alpharetta workers’ compensation attorneys at Montlick and Associates often pursue both a workers’ compensation claim against our client’s employer and a personal injury claim against a third party.
Alpharetta Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Claims: The strain on resources to care for our elderly love ones continues to grow as the baby boomer generation ages. Many nursing home facilities are already understaffed or staffed with under-qualified employees, and when Alpharetta nursing homes prioritize cutting costs above their residents’ care, the result can be physical, emotional and financial abuse or chronic neglect. If your vulnerable loved one has been injured by nursing home neglect and abuse, our firm is committed to holding nursing homes accountable for providing the care they have promised. We invite you to contact us to see how we can help.
Alpharetta Dog Attacks (Dog Bite Claims): Each year, millions of people are bitten in dog attacks with nearly 800,000 of those victims suffering injuries severe enough to require medical treatment. The seriousness and magnitude of dog bite injuries is reflected in the fact that nearly one billion dollars in insurance claims are generated each year resulting from dog bite injuries. If you have been injured as the result of an aggressive dog whose owner has failed to properly contain or restrain it, contact us. Our attorneys have obtained compensation for victims of dog mauling who have suffered serious injury, including the need for reconstructive surgery.
Alpharetta Pedestrian Accidents: With the growing nationwide emphasis on health issues, many people are prompted to negotiate the streets and roads of Alpharetta by jogging, running or walking. An unfortunate reality is that many drivers fail to pay attention or drive safely, providing a potential formula for causing serious injury to unsuspecting pedestrians. As pedestrians have no physical protection when struck by a motor vehicle, “minor” pedestrian accidents are unusual, and pedestrian accidents frequently involve life-altering injuries. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to attempt to shift the responsibility for such accidents to the pedestrian victim. Our experienced pedestrian accident attorneys are aggressive in opposing such tactics.
Alpharetta Premises Liability: A property owner is obligated to keep his/her property reasonably safe or warn of potential hidden dangers for those coming onto the property for legitimate purposes. Injuries such as animal attacks, trips and falls and other injuries caused by unsafe conditions on the property of others may warrant the effective legal advice and representation of our exceptional staff of attorneys experienced in premises liability.
