Atlanta Automobile Accident Attorneys

Our Atlanta automobile accident attorneys understand that car accidents are an unavoidable and extremely frequent occurrence impacting the lives of millions of Americans every day across the country. When you are involved in a sudden, unexpected car accident, it can impact every aspect of your life, including your family relationships, work, and overall quality of life. Atlanta, GA drivers face the challenges of heavy traffic, impatient drivers, and a system of freeways and roads that are struggling to keep up with our population.

Anyone who experiences any type of injury in a car accident should see their doctor. There are many injuries ranging from whiplash injuries to traumatic brain injuries which are common in car accidents that are not obvious for some period after the collision. Delays in seeking medical care for a brain injury can be particularly serious because sometimes bleeding in the space between the brain and skull can cause permanent brain damage, loss of physical and mental functioning or speech capability, and even death. Even with less severe injuries, prompt medical attention can mean a substantially more favorable medical outcome. A supplemental advantage of prompt medical attention is that it will discourage the other driver’s insurance company from claiming that your injuries were not caused by the collision or were not serious enough to compel you to obtain medical attention.

There is a virtually limitless variation of Atlanta car accidents that involve different types of vehicles and types of impact, such as the following:

  • Head-On Collisions
  • Drunk Driving Accidents
  • Side Impact Crashes
  • Bus Crashes
  • Multi-Car Collisions
  • Distracted Driving Crashes
  • Rollover Collisions
  • Motorcycle Collisions
    Rear-Enders
  • Back Over Accidents
  • Bicycle Collision
  • Uninsured or unlicensed driving accidents
  • Sideswipe Collisions
  • Single Vehicle Road Departure Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Hit and Run Crashes
  • Fatigued Driver Accidents
  • Chain Reaction Wrecks

Whether you are involved in any of these types of collisions or another type of accident, your Atlanta automobile accident attorneys will have the experience to pursue legal action based most typically on the legal theory of negligence. Negligence is generally expressed as an act or omission that creates a foreseeable risk of harm to another. In the context of a car accident, negligence effectively refers to unreasonably unsafe driving conduct that creates a foreseeable risk of harm. This may include actual traffic violations but need not constitute a violation of traffic safety laws. An Atlanta car accident attorney must also establish that your injuries were actually caused by the collision. This may include aggravation of a pre-existing condition. While it is impossible to list all the various types of driver negligence that may form the basis of an Atlanta auto accident case, some of the most typical causes include the following:

  • Not allowing sufficient following distance
  • Failing to stop at red lights or stop signs
  • Ignoring yield signs or right-of-way rules
  • Driving while impaired by legal medications, illegal drugs or alcohol
  • Exceeding the speed limit or failing to adjust one’s speed to account for weather conditions
  • Illegal or unsafe turns
  • Failure to conduct maintenance like checking tire tread and pressure
  • Not checking blind spots when merging or changing lanes
  • Aggressive driving practices
  • Drivers that are distracted mentally, visually, or physically

One of the sad realities of car accidents in Atlanta or throughout Georgia is that drivers who are thoughtlessly inconsiderate or careless often cause them. These accidents can often result in injuries that are debilitating, require long-term care, and cause permanent incapacity of varying degrees. Injuries that most often inflict permanent disability and incapacity include damage to the spinal cord, brain injuries, amputation injuries, quadriplegia and paraplegia. Other injuries that may cause intense pain and require a significant period of recovery include broken bones, whiplash injuries, severe burns, and torn tendons and ligaments.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious Atlanta car accident, you may be eligible to receive monetary recovery for a wide range of losses including:

  • Missed wages or other forms of income
  • Any medical or treatment-related expenses
  • Property damage
  • Loss of spousal services or companionship
  • Adverse impact on quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Damages related to disfigurement or permanent disability
  • Burial or funeral expenses in the case of wrongful death
  • Exemplary damages (i.e. punitive damages)

Time is of the essence for anyone who is involved in an Atlanta car accident because there are critical time limits that apply. If you fail to comply with this timing requirement, you may be barred from pursuing damages for your injuries or loss. The sooner you contact an experienced Atlanta auto accident attorney, the earlier the attorney can begin investigating your claim and developing a strategy for the successful resolution of your Atlanta car accident case.

Milton Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have been injured in a car accident, slip and fall or other type of incident caused by the negligence of another person, we understand how much stress and anxiety you are experiencing. Our experienced Milton personal injury attorneys are committed to easing the stress of our clients by providing effective legal representation with our clients’ personal injury claims which enables our clients to concentrate on their physical and emotional recovery.

Our Milton personal injury law firm has been successfully advocating for those injured by the unreasonably careless, reckless and intentional misconduct of third parties since our law firm was established in 1984. We work diligently to answer our clients’ questions, explain their legal options and shoulder the burden of dealing with insurance and legal issues. We have built our law firm’s reputation based on diligence, commitment and personal service. For almost 30 years, we have effectively advocated for those injured in a broad spectrum of cases, such as car accidents, complex defective product litigation, construction accidents and many other types of Milton personal injury claims. Some of the types of personal injury claims that our Milton personal injury attorneys handle include the following:

Milton Car Accidents (Motor Vehicle Collisions): There are many reasons that car accidents occur, including careless or distracted drivers, companies that produce defective vehicles and public roadways that are not safely constructed or maintained. Our experienced Milton car accident attorneys have almost three decades of experience representing personal injury victims involved in all forms of motor vehicle accidents including: trucking accidents (tractor-trailer crashes), SUV and 15-passenger van rollovers, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, bus accidents, road departure accidents, distracted driving accidents, drunken driving accidents, speeding accidents and many more. If you or someone you love suffers serious injury or a loved one dies in a Milton car accident, we invite you to speak to an experienced Milton car accident attorney for a case evaluation.

Milton Animal Attacks (Dog Bite): While most dogs are loving companions, some homeowners intentionally select large and aggressive breeds for security and to intimidate potential intruders. Sometimes these dogs are intentionally made more vicious but do not receive appropriate training to differentiate innocent visitors from those who are engaged in wrongful conduct. When homeowners use this form of indiscriminate and non-discerning security, innocent people may be seriously injured or disfigured. Tragically, children are the most common victims of such attacks. Our Milton dog bite attorneys have represented those attacked by vicious dogs like Pit Bulls, Rottweilers and other vicious dog breeds. When dogs cause injury to innocent victims, our experienced Milton dog bite attorneys at Montlick and Associates are committed to holding homeowners responsible for the injuries caused by their dogs.

Milton Wrongful Actions: When a spouse, parent, child or domestic partner is taken from you in a motor vehicle accident or other sudden traumatic event, the sense of loss can be overwhelming and debilitating. Families who lose someone because of the negligent, reckless or intentional misconduct of another face not only extreme emotional hardships but also the financial difficulties that come with medical bills, death-related expenses (funeral/burial) and loss of household income. Our Milton wrongful death attorneys understand these challenges so we effectively navigate insurance hassles and legal procedures so that you can focus on supporting your family and recovering from your loss.

Milton Defective Products: Legal claims for injuries and wrongful death caused by defective or inherently dangerous products are covered by product liability law. Product liability law often permits a consumer who is injured by an unsafe product to pursue a claim for financial compensation against the manufacturer or supplier of the product as long as it left the entity’s control with defects or deficiencies that made it unsafe for its intended use, which includes foreseeable misuse of the product. Many times those who produce or distribute defective products may be liable on a strict liability basis so that they are effectively guarantors of the safety of their product. If you are injured by a defective product, our Milton defective products attorneys have extensive resources and three decades of experience taking on large corporations whose products endanger the public.

Milton Workers' Compensation Claims: There are many types of hazards that may result in an on-the-job injury, including construction accidents, defective machinery, motor vehicle accidents and falls from elevations. While workers' compensation provides a no-fault approach to obtaining compensation for your work-related injuries, the process can be complex, and the recovery is fairly limited. Our experienced Milton workers' compensation attorneys investigate our clients’ cases to determine the viability of a third party personal injury lawsuit, which may provide substantially more recovery. We invite you to contact us to us learn about your rights and options.

Milton Premises Liability (Slip and Fall Accidents): If you or someone close to you is injured on the property of another because of an unsafe condition or hazard, you may have the right to pursue a claim for damages based on premises liability law. A Milton premises liability claim, such as a slip and fall, pool drowning, spa entrapment accident, construction site accident, dog attack or negligent security claim may be brought when the accident occurs on private, public or commercial setting. However the liability rules, scope of the property owner’s duty and procedural requirements for pursuing a claim may differ significantly based on a number of factors. If you have suffered serious injury or a loved one has died because of a hazard on another’s property, our experienced Milton premises liability attorneys at Montlick and Associates offer a free consultation so that we can evaluate potential claims and explain our clients’ options.

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