Forest Park Auto Accident Attorneys

If you are involved in a serious Forest Park car crash, you may be incapacitated so that you cannot work or engage in daily life activities. Motor vehicle accidents may involve all types of vehicles, including passenger cars, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, SUVs, bicycles and even pedestrians. When a person is injured in a car accident, the challenges a personal injury victim faces can seem insurmountable. When you are suffering from the pain of serious injuries, the emotional trauma of suffering serious injury and the financial complications of being unable to pay your household bills can make it difficult to focus on pragmatic considerations.

Our Forest Park auto accident attorneys at Montlick & Associates know that insurance adjusters often take advantage of the vulnerability of car accident victims. Insurance adjusters recognize that you may be feeling financial pressure and/or anxiety and may try to persuade you to settle your Forest Park car accident claim before you have completely recovered and the value of your claim is apparent. Our Forest Park car accident lawyers have represented many people injured in serious motor vehicle collisions and protected their interest against insurance adjusters with no objective other than to deny or minimize their claim. If you or someone you love suffers serious injury in a car accident, our Forest Park car accident law firm has been providing diligent legal representation to personal injury victims since 1984.

The Basis for a Forest Park Car Accident Claim

The basis for imposing liability in virtually all car accident cases in Forest Park is the legal theory of negligence. Negligence refers to an act or omission that fails to comply with the standard of reasonable care to prevent foreseeable injury to others. The most common form of negligence behind Forest Park car accidents is driver error, including the following:

  • Traveling faster than the speed limit
  • Aggressive driving, such as tailgating or driving on the shoulder to pass
  • DUI/DWI
  • Using a cell phone to carry on a conversation or text while driving
  • Operating a motor vehicle while fatigued or sleepy
  • Driving while manually, visually or physically distracted
  • Failing to verify it is clear before turning or changing lanes
  • Driving while under the influence of prescription, over-the-counter or illegal drugs

When reviewing this list, it should be apparent that most of these causes are not “accidental” at all. They involve decisions by drivers to engage in driving conduct that increases the risk of a serious car accident resulting in devastating injuries or wrongful death. While negligent driving is the most common cause of Forest Park car accidents, they may also be caused by public entities that fail to maintain safe streets and highways as well as vehicle manufacturers that produce vehicles with defective parts.

Types of Forest Park Car Accidents

There are many types of vehicle collisions that can cause serious injury. Because there are a wide variety of vehicles and types of collisions, each Forest Park car accident case must be investigated and analyzed to determine the best strategy for pursuing a car accident personal injury claim.

Forest Park Personal Injury Attorneys

Our experienced Forest Park personal injury attorneys at Montlick & Associates are well known among insurance carriers, the civil defense bar and local courts as experienced, dedicated and compassionate personal injury attorneys who work aggressively for their clients. We are committed to providing the expertise, skill and resources of a big Georgia law firm with a small firm’s personal service. The experienced personal injury attorneys at our law firm understand that when you are suffering from the trauma and pain of a car accident, construction accident, slip and fall, motorcycle accident or any other incident resulting in serious injury, you need a law firm that passionately pursues the best outcome for its clients and provides timely communications.

The immediate aftermath of a serious accident like a motor vehicle collision is a critical time for preserving a personal injury claim. Accident victims should seek prompt medical attention and follow through on any diagnostic procedures ordered by their doctor or emergency room personnel. It is also important to have someone close to you gather evidence, including pictures of injuries, vehicle damage, the accident scene and obstructions or other factors that may have contributed to the collision. If there are witnesses present, the names and contact information for the witnesses is also valuable information. The law enforcement officer may try to talk to you at the accident scene, but you should explain that you are not feeling well if you are not really up to the interview. If you do feel like you can talk to the officer, you should communicate any facts that you think support that the other driver caused the accident.

The Forest Park personal injury legal team at Montlick & Associates has been providing effective legal representation since our law firm was founded nearly thirty years ago. We are qualified to handle virtually all types of personal injury claims, including but not limited to the following:

Forest Park Wrongful Death Cases: When a family loses someone they love in a fatal accident because of a lack of reasonable care, the pain and grief can be overwhelming. Our Forest Park personal injury attorneys at Montlick & Associates are committed to easing the financial burdens that confront family members that have had a loved one taken from them prematurely. We provide compassionate but aggressive representation so that family members left behind have the financial resources to provide for their family’s needs.

Forest Park Auto Accident Claims: One of the most tragic aspects of car accidents is that most of the time they are not accidents at all. Most collisions involving motor vehicles are the product of a driver or other party deciding to engage in unsafe conduct like speeding, driving under the influence, text messaging, calling on a cell phone, tailgating or otherwise engaging in unsafe driving practices. If all drivers would make a commitment to drive safely and obey traffic laws, the majority of tragic collisions could be prevented. Our Forest Park motor vehicle accident attorneys handle all types of motor vehicle collisions including: car accidents, trucking accidents (i.e. tractor-trailer crashes), motorcycle crashes, bicycle accidents, bus collisions, public transit accidents and pedestrians struck by motor vehicles. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, our experienced Forest Park car accident attorneys have built their reputation on diligent, compassionate and ethical representation of car accident victims in Forest Park and throughout Georgia.

Forest Park Dangerous and Defective Product Injuries: When consumers are injured or lose someone they love because a company rushed a poorly designed, shabbily constructed or inadequately tested product to the market, the manufacturers of such products should be held accountable. When you suffer injury because of a hazardous or defective product, you may have a right to seek damages from anyone in the manufacturing, distribution or retail chain. Our experienced Forest Park dangerous and defective products attorneys have the experience and resources to take on large corporations that endanger consumers with their unsafe products.

Forest Park Dog Attacks (Dog Bites & Maulings): While dogs can be loving pets, they are animals and subject to unpredictable behavior. Because dog owners are in the best position to know if their dog is dangerous and take precautions to protect others from a dog attack, the law provides several avenues for establishing the liability of dog owners for injuries caused by their dog. Our experienced team of Forest Park dog attack attorneys may employ legal theories based on a dog’s past vicious tendencies, failure to comply with leash laws or the negligence of a dog owner when seeking compensation for our clients.

Forest Park Workers’ Compensation Claims (Construction Accidents): Our Forest Park workers’ compensation law firm represents those injured in a wide range of industries including construction trades, heavy and light industry, agriculture and other occupations. Some of the types of workplace accidents we see most frequently include slip and falls, falls from elevations, objects colliding with workers, motor vehicle collisions, heavy equipment accidents, repetitive motion injuries (carpal tunnel) and workplace assaults. If you are injured in a workplace accident, our experienced Forest Park workers’ compensation attorneys can protect your interest when pursuing workers’ compensation benefits. Because a personal injury claim typically results in a more generous recovery, we often explore the feasibility of such a claim against responsible third parties.

Forest Park Premises Liability Claims (Slip and Fall): Premises liability law governs the responsibility of property owners to those who are injured on their property. There are many types of premises liability claims, such as slip and falls, falls from ladders or unsafe stairways, dog bites or attacks, drowning accidents, spa drain entrapment accidents, violent crimes because of insufficient security measures, machinery accidents and more. These cases require a careful analysis of the specific facts and circumstances of the incident to determine whether a property owner is liable for injuries to a person that comes on their property. Our experienced Forest Park premises liability attorneys offer a free case evaluation so that we can advise you of your rights and options.
