Hampton Personal Injury Attorneys

When you are injured in a motorcycle accident or a fall on a slippery floor in a grocery store, the injuries that you suffer can prevent you from working or engaging in everyday activities. The physical pain and emotional angst that results from such injuries is often exacerbated by the financial hardship created by medical expenses spiraling out of control and the disruption in the flow of your household income. While our Hampton personal injury attorneys provide insightful legal counsel and effective legal representation to personal injury victims, we know that the families of those who suffer serious injuries and wrongful death on construction sites or in hospital emergency rooms because of negligence also experience severe hardships. At Montlick and Associates, our Hampton personal injury attorneys have built our reputation on obtaining successful results for our clients since we were founded in 1984.

Our Hampton personal injury law firm provides legal representation in a wide range of injury cases, such as:

Hampton Tractor-Trailer Accidents: The massive size of commercial trucks often means that trucking accidents cause severe injury to those in the other vehicle. These cases necessitate retaining a law firm that is experienced in the unique regulatory structure and evidentiary issues involved in big-rig accidents. Our Hampton trucking accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have extensive knowledge of trucking regulations and familiarity with trucking industry practices involving the destruction or altering of evidence to avoid liability for tractor-trailer accidents.

Hampton Car Accidents: Car accidents remain the leading cause of accidental injury in the U.S. The impact of thousands of pounds of steel colliding with another vehicle can result in permanent injury. Tragically, negligent driving practices, such as speeding, tailgating, distracted driving and driving while intoxicated continues to claim tens of thousands of lives annually throughout the U.S. Our Hampton car accident attorneys take care of our clients’ legal and insurance issues while they recover from their injuries.

Hampton Motorcycle Accidents: Few motorists are as vulnerable to the negligence of others as those riding motorcycles. Motorcycles are less stable and responsive when riders are forced to engage in emergency maneuvers when responding to errors made by other drivers. Because motorcycles are also completely devoid of safety features to reduce the severity of injuries in a collision, a motorcyclist is much more likely to suffer serious injury in a Hampton motorcycle accident. At Montlick and Associates, our experienced Hampton motorcycle accident attorneys understand the unique challenges faced by those injured by drivers who fail to take care to avoid cutting off or colliding into motorcyclists because many of us also ride to commute to work or for pleasure.

Hampton Bicycle Accidents & Hampton Pedestrian Accidents: When motor vehicles made of thousands of pounds of metal collide with pedestrians and bicyclists who are unprotected, the results often lead to catastrophic injuries. These cases may involve traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, damage to vital organs and other significant injuries. At Montlick and Associates, our experienced personal injury attorneys recognize the importance of maximizing our clients’ recovery given the severity of their injuries.

Hampton Animal Attacks: A dog bite or attack involving any animal can cause severe injuries, permanent physical scarring and impairment, as well as long-term psychological trauma. Georgia law imposes a duty on those that own dogs to protect others from their dog if the owner has reason to know the dog has vicious tendencies. Dog owners may also be subject to strict liability (i.e. liability without proving negligence) if the dog owner violates a law or ordinance regarding proper containment or control of their dog. Dog owners also may be financially responsible for failure to exercise reasonable care in preventing injury to others caused by a canine.

Hampton Workers' Compensation Benefits: Whether employees fall from a scaffolding on a construction project or suffer carpel tunnel while working in an office, they generally are protected by the workers' compensation system, which provides benefits to those injured at the job site or while performing duties that benefit their employer. These benefits include medical treatment, short term disability pay and compensation for any permanent disability. Our experienced Hampton workers' compensation attorneys protect our clients’ interests to ensure that they are not the victims of a prognosis that is not supported by medical evidence. We also can take steps to ensure that procedural requirements are met in a timely manner. It may even be possible to pursue a personal injury claim against another responsible party to increase your total recovery.

Hampton Premises Liability Claims: There are many types of accidents that may occur when you are visiting a local business or attending a state college. From falls caused by foreign matter on ceramic tile to violent assaults caused by the failure to lock doors or provide adequate lighting, the legal standards governing financial recovery for injuries suffered as a result of hazards on another’s land or property is premises liability law. The specific obligation of a land or property owner to make property safe or warn of hazards is based on a wide range of considerations. Our experienced Hampton premises liability attorneys offer a free case evaluation so that we can determine whether you have a viable Hampton premises liability claim.

Hampton Product Liability: When consumers suffer serious injury or wrongful death caused by a hazardous or defective product, it can be difficult for a consumer to know how or why the defects arose. Product liability law shifts this obligation onto the manufacturer, designer or retailer of the product by imposing strict liability if the product was defective when it left the entity’s control. While a premises liability claim may be based on strict liability (i.e. meaning no negligence needs to be established), the companies involved often invest enormous sums to defend product liability cases. Our Hampton product liability attorneys understand that to successfully prevail in product liability claims an extensive understanding of the manufacturing process and industry may be necessary so we work with widely acknowledged experts so that we can strive for a desirable outcome for our clients.

Hampton Wrongful Death Claims: When a loved one dies in a motor vehicle accident caused by a driver who is impaired by alcohol, the grief of a family member’s loss may be accompanied by grief and anger. It is a tragic reality that despite the many laws designed to prevent wrongful death caused by conduct that is clearly unsafe many people continue to engage in negligent, reckless or intentional conduct that may cause the tragic death of an innocent victim. Our compassionate Hampton wrongful death attorneys diligently pursue the compensation surviving family members need to secure their future. We understand the difficult emotional challenges you are facing so let us focus on the insurance and legal issues while you take care of yourself and your family.

Car Accident Attorneys Atlanta

Unexpected things can happen on the roadways whenever you climb behind the wheel and pull out of your driveway. Auto accidents are one of the most disruptive events that can occur as you navigate the streets of Atlanta; they can create havoc in your daily life and cause severe hardships. Accidents involving all types of motor vehicles can result in intense physical and emotional suffering as well as financial hardships. Many Atlanta car accidents inflict excruciating pain and permanent injuries on auto collision victims, which makes it difficult for them to focus on legal and insurance issues surrounding their mishap.

At Montlick and Associates, car accident attorneys Atlanta are committed to holding those who are negligent or reckless accountable for any injury or loss of life that occurs in a serious roadway collision. We have passionate lawyers who fight for the rights of our car accident injury clients so that our clients can recover fair compensation for their losses and injuries. Our Atlanta car accident law firm has been obtaining successful results for our clients since our law firm was first established in 1984.

When car accidents happen, it is usually because one or both of the drivers are negligent. However, insurance companies typically deny the fault of their client, even when it is very clear that their insured is indeed liable. Our experienced Atlanta car accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates review accident reports, conduct witness interviews, and screen video footage when available in order to develop a compelling narration of events that supports a persuasive legal claim for damages.

Establishing the Legal Basis to Claim Liability in Atlanta Car Accidents

Car manufacturers have been making considerable improvements in the safety features of their vehicles. However, accidents resulting in serious injuries are unavoidable when drivers consciously neglect road safety rules and regulations. Most accidents involving vehicles are not really accidents; rather, they are a product of the driver's conscious failure to exercise reasonable caution, obey Georgia traffic laws, and focus one's attention on his or her driving. Statistics reveal that most accidents in Atlanta are due to drivers that do not follow basic traffic safety laws or common sense safe driving practices. When drivers fail to exercise the care and prudence of a reasonable person, they may be held accountable for the physical injuries and wrongful deaths suffered by innocent victims.

Negligence is the legal basis for claiming damages arising from virtually all vehicle crashes. Negligence is a legal term that in the context of a motor vehicle crash refers to a driver who does not demonstrate the care of a reasonable driver under similar circumstances which causes foreseeable injury. In Atlanta car accident cases involving negligence, the burden of proof is on the personal injury victim. While there are many forms of negligent driving that may be relevant in a Atlanta auto accident, common examples include:

• Tailgating

• Driving under the influence of illicit drugs, prescription medications or over-the-counter medications

• Aggressive driving

• Distracted driving, such as using a cell phone while on the road

• Failing to yield or stop as directed by traffic signals or signs

• Speeding

• Unsafe turns or lane changes

• Failing to adapt driving to weather and traffic conditions

• Driving when tired or fatigued

When you are a driver, passenger or pedestrian who is involved in a Atlanta auto accident, you may be exposed to the risk of suffering a wide range of injuries. These injuries may include:

• Head injuries, including skull fractures

• Back and neck injuries

• Disk injuries or other spinal damage

• Trauma to the brain

• Extensive internal bleeding

• Damage to vital organs

• Severe burn injuries

• Amputation of extremities

• Wrongful death

If you suffer any form of injury in a Atlanta car accident, it is prudent to seek immediate medical attention. This is true no matter how minor your injuries may seem in the immediate aftermath of a collision. When a person is involved in a car accident, an accident victim generally will be shaken and may even be in shock. It is extremely difficult to make assessments about your physical well being when coping with the extreme emotional reaction that is common when one is involved in a motor vehicle collision. There are also some injuries, including head injuries, that result in bleeding and pressure on the brain that may exhibit only minor symptoms at the time but can become life threatening if immediate medical attention is not sought.
