Lilburn Auto Accident Attorneys

Auto accidents are unanticipated and disruptive events that can force those injured to suffer intense physical pain, difficult emotional challenges, and burdensome financial hardships. When you are struggling to overcome the physical pain caused by a motor vehicle collision, it can be difficult to focus on legal and insurance issues that must be navigated to obtain monetary compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and vehicle repair. These losses do not even include less tangible but important damages like pain and suffering, impaired quality of life, loss of consortium, extreme emotional distress and other damages. Many Lilburn auto accidents leave injury victims unable to walk, work or care for their family.

At Montlick and Associates, our Lilburn auto accident attorneys are committed to imposing the costs of serious injury on the negligent and indifferent drivers who are responsible for causing car accidents in Lilburn. While sometimes the facts that determine who is responsible for a motor vehicle collision are clear, this is the exception and not the rule. Insurance companies typically take aggressive positions denying the fault of their client. Even when the fault of a driver is fairly obvious, the insurance carrier for the other driver may try to claim that your own unsafe driving also played a significant role in causing the Lilburn car accident. Our experienced Lilburn car accident lawyers’ investigation of our clients’ car accidents may include reviewing accident reports; interviewing witnesses; screening video footage; as well as examining photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage and/or surrounding area.

Common Varieties of Lilburn Motor Vehicle Accidents

Our Lilburn auto accident attorneys represent clients injured in collisions involving all types of vehicles and accidents, such as:

  • Rear impact collisions
  • Bicycle collisions with passenger vehicles
  • Chain reaction or multi-car pileup accidents
  • Pedestrians run over by motor vehicles
  • Vehicle malfunction accidents caused by product defects
  • Trucking accidents (jackknifes, rollovers, carriage under-ride accidents and other tractor-trailer accidents)
  • Driveway and parking lot backup accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents

Legal Principles Involved in Proving Liability for Lilburn Car Accidents

Most Lilburn car accidents occur because drivers do not obey basic traffic laws or otherwise drive in an inattentive manner. While some motor vehicle collisions really are accidental events caused by drivers who are at less than their best because they are tired or upset, the vast majority of car crashes are caused by conscious decisions to take risks. When a driver climbs behind the steering wheel after a night of drinking, drives with one hand while text messaging, or drives ninety miles per hour or more, car accidents that result can hardly be characterized as an “accident.” Drivers that choose to engage in unsafe driving should be held accountable for the injuries or wrongful deaths that they cause to other innocent vehicle occupants and pedestrians.

If you are involved in a car accident in Lilburn, the legal principle that constitutes the focus of most car accident cases is negligence. Negligence is a legal term of art that basically refers to the failure to exercise ordinary care to prevent foreseeable injury to others. The burden of proof is on the injury victim in a Lilburn auto accident case to establish that the defendant’s unsafe conduct caused the accident and that the accident was responsible for the victim’s injuries. Some of the types of negligence that cause Lilburn car accidents include the following:

  • Alcohol-impaired driving (drunken drivers)
  • Improper following distance (tailgating)
  • Using a cell phone to text or call while driving (distracted driving)
  • Weaving through traffic while speeding (aggressive driving)
  • Failing to stop or yield as directed by Georgia law and traffic signals/signs
  • Violating the speed limit
  • Motor vehicle defects
  • Driving while fatigued or drowsy
  • Unsafe road design or faulty road maintenance
  • Failure to adjust driving to traffic and weather conditions

Although this is hardly a comprehensive list of the types of dangerous driving that can cause a serious Lilburn auto accident, these are some of the more common forms of negligence that contribute to car accidents. When you are involved in a car accident you may suffer a wide range of injuries from less serious injuries like soft tissue injuries, torn tendons or ligaments and whiplash to severe injuries that can permanently influence your quality of life, such as:

  • Head trauma resulting in brain injuries
  • Loss of use or amputation of extremities
  • Damage to the spinal column impairing sensation or mobility
  • Severe fractures, crushed and broken bones
  • Wrongful death

Lilburn Personal Injury Attorneys

While drivers frequently pass motor vehicle crash scenes, including tractor-trailer collisions, motorcycle accidents, rollover accidents and other types of collisions, these accidents often seem far removed from the daily life of the driver passing by. However, this sense that serious accidents only happen to “the other guy” flies in the face of personal injury accident statistics. There are over 118, 000 people per year that die because of unintentional injuries while tens of millions more are treated in emergency rooms for injuries suffered in falls, motor vehicle accidents, assaults and other forms of negligent and intentional conduct according to the CDC.

When it is suddenly you involved in a car crash or fall on a construction project, the financial obstacles that accompany unanticipated medical bills and lost wages due to time off work only make the physical recovery process more difficult and stressful. At Montlick and Associates, our Lilburn personal injury attorneys understand the difficult challenges faced by those who suffer injury because of the negligent or intentional misconduct of others. We have been providing legal representation to Lilburn injury victims based on diligence and genuine compassion for our clients since our Lilburn personal injury law firm was founded in 1984. Because we have handled so many accident cases, we are qualified to offer legal representation in a multitude of personal injury claims including the following:

Lilburn Motor Vehicle Accidents (Motor Vehicle Crashes): Motor vehicle crashes involving vehicle rollovers, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, vehicle ejections, high rates of speed, and pedestrians frequently are the most likely to cause severe, debilitating injuries and wrongful death. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of serious accidental injury. When you are involved in a crash involving a drunken driver, inattentive driver or driver engaged in other forms of unlawful or hazardous driving, our experienced car accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates investigate our clients' claims to determine the basis for imposing liability and potential damages so that we can obtain the compensation our clients need and deserve.

Lilburn Canine Bite Injuries (Dog Attacks): Georgia law provides a number of legal theories for imposing liability on the owner of a dog or other animal when the dog causes a canine attack or mauling incident. Many owners have observed behavior from their dog, such as growling and lunging, attempted biting and other actions such that put an owner on notice that their dog may have a vicious potential to bite, attack or maul others. Dog owners may be liable for dog bites that occur when owners have reason to know about this type of aggressive behavior by their dog. Many homeowner claims for injuries caused by dog bites also are based on the violation of ordinances requiring owners to keep their dogs leashed or fenced, as well as negligence claims.

Lilburn Wrongful Death Verdicts and Settlements: While it is common for people to express sentiments like “We know what you are going through” when you lose a loved one, the truth is that they do not know. The pain you experience when you lose someone you love is both intense and extremely personal. While our Lilburn wrongful death attorneys cannot take away your pain, we can help you obtain the monetary recovery that will ease the financial challenges that can complicate your efforts to cope with your emotional pain and grief. We work diligently to hold those whose careless or intentional behavior robs a family of a beloved parent, child or spouse responsible for the deaths that they cause.

Lilburn Workers' Compensation Benefits Claims: There are many reasons that injuries and occupational illnesses occur in a work environment. Some injuries are the result of dangerous accidents while others are caused by repetitive motion or exposure to asbestos and other hazardous substances. The workers' compensation system and personal injury law can be skillfully coordinated to provide the best benefits and remedies each offers. An employee’s workers' compensation claim may be filed by our Lilburn workers' compensation attorneys to obtain medical care, income reimbursement and compensation for disabilities from your employer’s workers' compensation insurance company. When someone other than your employer is at least partially responsible for your injury, the responsible party may be subject to civil liability, which typically entails more extensive monetary recovery.

Lilburn Premises Liability Lawsuits or Settlements: The owner or manager of real property cannot simply turn a blind eye to hazards on their premises that could cause injury to others. Business owners have an affirmative responsibility not only to take precautions to protect customers and others who come on their property but also to conduct reasonable inspections and maintenance to unveil manmade dangerous conditions. Whether you are injured or have lost a loved one because of a lack of security, failure to restrain a dog, fall in an open trench, drowning incident in a swimming pool, or slip and fall on a wet floor, our experienced Lilburn premises liability attorneys provide effective legal representation to those injured because of the lack of reasonable care by property owners.

Lilburn Product Defect Settlements and Judgments: Product liability law is designed to facilitate compensation to those who are injured because a business that produces and sells a product does not carefully design and manufacture their product, or the business fails to provide accurate warning and instructions to protect consumers. Legal claims brought by victims of unsafe and defective products are one of the most valuable public safety tools. Imposing the cost of physical, economic and emotional damages suffered by an accident victim on the company that produces the defective product is an invaluable way to encourage companies not to skimp on the cost of product testing and quality control. If you are injured by a dangerous or defective product, our dedicated team of Lilburn product defect lawyers have been taking on businesses that injure consumers with their products since we were founded almost thirty years ago.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one has died, our experienced Lilburn personal injury lawyers are committed to representing personal injury and wrongful death victims in obtaining compensation to rebuild their lives and support their families.
