Atlanta Auto Accident Lawyer - Over 30 Years of Experience

Motor vehicle accidents that involve passenger cars, trucks, SUVs and other vehicles often cause significant injuries and even fatalities. Poorly designed roads, defective vehicles and bad drivers cause the death of tens of thousands of innocent victims annually. These factors also cause serious injury in 1.5 million collisions per year. Many of those injured in Atlanta auto accidents suffer permanent injuries that impact their quality of life and ability to continue in their occupation. If you suffer this type of life-altering injury in a Atlanta car accident, the financial recovery you obtain in a car accident settlement or verdict can play a vital role in providing for your family and preserving the highest quality of life possible given your injuries.

Our experienced Atlanta auto accident lawyer at Montlick and Associates understand that no amount of money can restore a person’s ability to walk or give back the love and affection of a family member. However, monetary recovery from a car accident claim can alleviate the financial hardships created by escalating medical expenses and prolonged time away from work. The other driver’s auto insurance provider may compound these financial hardships by dragging out the settlement process or refusing to pay a valid claim.

Insurance carriers often engage in this type of conduct to increase the financial pressure on car accident victims and their families. This is just one of many tactics insurance companies may use to deprive personal injury victims of the full value of the damages suffered in a serious auto collision. Our Atlanta auto accident law firm has been effectively countering such tactics while aggressively pursuing our clients’ best interest against insurance providers since our founding in 1984.

Negligent Causes of Atlanta Car Accidents

The basic legal theory that is at the heart of the majority of Atlanta car accident claims is negligence. This is a legal term of art that describes the failure of a party to take reasonable care to avoid causing foreseeable injury or death to another. When a negligent driver causes a Atlanta auto accident, the key issues that must be proved to establish negligence are that the other driver engaged in some form of unreasonably unsafe conduct that was the actual cause of injury to another. While DUI, excessive speed and inattentive driving are the most common causes of driver error that result in car accidents in Atlanta, there are many other forms of driver error that may cause serious auto collisions including:

  • Violations of Georgia traffic laws
  • Tailgating or not allowing sufficient following distance based on speed
  • Inattentive or distracted driving
  • Illegal or unsafe U-turns or left turns
  • Passing when not safe (i.e. on hills, curves, etc.)
  • Blowing through traffic controls at intersections
  • Driver inexperience
  • Failure to slow down and pay attention in construction zones
  • Drivers that fail to turn their head to check blind spots

There are certainly many other types of unsafe driving conduct that may cause a Atlanta car accident, but unsafe driving is not the sole cause of serious collisions in Atlanta. Sometimes public entities do not design or construct roadways or traffic controls so that roadways and intersections are safe. Public entities also may fail to respond promptly to maintenance issues, such as objects that fall in roadways or traffic lights that malfunction. When public entities fail to design, build or maintain safe roadways, injured motorists may be able to pursue a claim against the public entity. Since public entities have sovereign immunity, personal injury claims against a public entity in Georgia must meet with special procedural and timing requirements. If a public entity may have contributed to your Georgia car accident, time is of the essence in seeking legal advice.

If your vehicle has defective components that contribute to a Atlanta car accident, the vehicle or component manufacturer may also be liable for your injuries. One of the most widely publicized types of collisions involving vehicle defects in recent years is sudden unintended acceleration accidents. Atlanta car accidents may be caused by defects in many different auto systems including brakes, steering, acceleration, fuel and others. When a defective component or vehicle contributes to your car accident, our experienced Atlanta car accident attorneys may be able pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer, distributor or retailer.

Serious Atlanta Car Accident Attorneys for Serious Injuries

Car accidents in Atlanta can result in injuries ranging in severity from minor lacerations, abrasions and soft tissue injuries to permanent, life-altering injuries and wrongful death. The compensation that may be sought in a Atlanta auto accident is related at least to some degree to the severity of one’s injuries. While calculating the value of a car accident claim is complex, two of the most significant factors are the cost of medical and/or rehabilitation expenses and the length of disability from one’s injuries. Injuries with high medical costs or those that never heal will typically result in more extensive recovery than injuries that heal relatively quickly with non-invasive medical procedures. Some of the kinds of injuries that we frequently see in Atlanta car accidents include:

  • Severe brain injuries resulting in loss of cognitive functioning
  • Injuries to the back and spinal cord that may impair mobility and sensation in the extremities
  • Amputation of extremities or decapitation
  • Fractures, broken bones and bone crush injuries
  • Internal injury to vital organs
  • Severe internal bleeding
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Dislocation or torn ligaments and tendons
  • Whiplash
  • Wrongful death

Severe injuries suffered in Atlanta car accidents mean not only physical pain but also extensive costs associated with medical treatment, rehabilitation and disruption in employment. These costs can intensify your anxiety and distract you from focusing on your physical and emotional recovery. The specific types of compensation that our dedicated and compassionate Atlanta car accident attorneys may be able to pursue for our clients depends on the specific facts and circumstances of their collision but may include:

  • Hospital bills and other expenses related to diagnosis and treatment
  • Compensation for mental anguish and physical pain and suffering
  • Income lost while you are recovering
  • Impaired earning ability
  • Vehicle repair and other property damage
  • Negative impact on marital relationship
  • Costs associated with wrongful death
  • Exemplary or punitive damages

Mableton Personal Injury Attorneys

The Mableton personal injury attorneys of Montlick and Associates are committed to providing quality legal representation to our clients. Montlick and Associates has provided legal services to those who suffer from serious injuries or the loss of a loved one due to the accidental or intentional conduct of a third party for almost three decades. We understand that accident victims struggling with the pain and financial hardships caused by a reckless driver or other negligent conduct need dedicated advocates that provide reasonable updates about the progress of their personal injury claim. Our Mableton personal injury lawyers provide legal representation in most injury cases including:

Mableton Auto Accident Claims: Each Mableton resident that commutes is at a risk of being involved in an auto accident because of the high volume of traffic on Mableton streets and highways. Any type of vehicle may be involved in a serious Mableton collision, including pickup trucks, cars, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, SUVs, and bicycles. Our experienced Mableton auto accident attorneys have extensive experience investigating motor vehicle collisions, analyzing the factors that contributed to such accidents, and building a strong theory of liability. We also recognize the importance of identifying all possible sources of financial compensation for our clients. Whether you are involved in a trucking accident, motorcycle accident or pedestrian accident, our experienced team has successfully obtained millions in damages for motor vehicle accident victims.

Mableton Dog Bites: Vicious and painful dog attacks result in physical scaring and disfigurement, permanent disability and severe psychological trauma. Many dog owners know they own vicious breeds of dogs or dogs that have been trained to attack. When dog owners fail to restrain their dog on a leash, keep the dog safely secured behind a fence or otherwise protect innocent third parties, they may face financial liability for the injuries to dog bite victims. While many may presume that a dog bite is a relatively minor injury, there are people who suffer severe and even fatal injuries from dogs every year.

Mableton Premises Liability: Property ownership comes with a certain level of responsibility to repair hazardous conditions. This responsibility is particularly acute for those that hold their property open to the public for commercial purposes. Many accidents can happen on a commercial property, including people slipping and falling on a foreign substance on the ground, accidents involving spas and pools, and more. Property owners have a duty to exercise reasonable care to protect visitors from harm and to keep their premises reasonably hazard free. While the exact scope of a property owner’s obligations to prevent injury may vary, our experienced Mableton premises liability attorneys offer a free consultation so that we can evaluate your case.

Mableton Wrongful Death: The loss of a parent, spouse or especially a child is an intense emotional experience that no family wants to endure. When the death of a family member is caused by a third party’s careless or thoughtless actions, it makes the loss that much more difficult. We understand the profound grief that accompanies the loss of a loved one to a terrible accident or act of violence, and our Mableton wrongful death attorneys are committed to seeking justice and financial compensation for family member that are left behind.

Mableton Nursing Home Abuse (Nursing Home Neglect): Nursing home abuse and neglect of seniors frequently goes unreported even in severe cases. Nursing homes frequently cut corners by understaffing the facility or failing to provide adequate training to the staff members. While sometimes symptoms of nursing home abuse or neglect may be obvious in the form of obvious bruising, bed sore, broken bones, drastic weight loss and other factors, other times it can be hard to identify. Staff members sometimes feel they are immune from consequences for sexual assault, physical attacks, isolation of seniors, denial of basic needs, or even theft of a senior’s assets or money because seniors may not be able to voice complaints or to ward of attacks. Our experienced Mableton nursing home attorneys are prepared to be the voice and advocate for exploited, abused or neglected seniors.

Mableton Construction Accidents: Despite a slowdown in the construction industry, those in all types of construction trades, such as heavy machinery operator, scaffolder, welding, high voltage electricians, and many others continue to suffer catastrophic and even fatal injuries. Construction sites may change quickly so that critical evidence is destroyed, lost or altered. While employees who suffer a construction accident injury generally will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, our experienced Mableton construction accident attorneys may also be able to seek personal injury damages if others contributed to your injury.

Mableton Product Liability Attorneys: When a product that is defective in its design, fabrication or marketing process injures you, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Companies that market products may be held financially accountable for the injuries or damages caused by their defective products. Product liability claims can be complicated because the defendants often are large corporations with substantial financial resources to defend against personal injury claims. Our experienced Mableton product liability attorneys have the experience and resources to take on large corporations who fail to properly test their products to protect consumers from injury.

Mableton Workers’ Compensation Attorneys: Our experienced Mableton workers’ compensation attorneys have a proven history of representing injured employees in obtaining medical care and financial compensation often necessitated by a serious job related injury. If you suffer a job related injury or occupational illness, you should consult our experienced Mableton workers’ compensation attorneys promptly so that you can inquire about applicable deadlines and the required documentation to protect your claim. We can also explore whether you have the basis for a personal injury claim against some party other than your employer.
