Atlanta Automobile Accident Law Firm

Although there are approximately six million car accidents annually, most people neither anticipate that they will be the victim of a motor vehicle accident nor prepare for the possibility of such a collision. Most drivers are stressed out and in extreme pain in the aftermath of a car crash. The emotional and physical impact of a car accident can pose a serious disruption of your life, which may be increased exponentially by financial challenges created by the costs of medical bills, hospitalization and rehabilitation. If you are physically unable to work, these medical expenses can be overwhelming. Our experienced Atlanta automobile accident law firm at Montlick and Associates provide persuasive legal representation to those who suffer serious injury or lose a loved one in a motor vehicle accident.

The human body was not designed to withstand the force of impact resulting from thousands of pounds of steel so many auto accidents cause injuries that result in permanent debilitating injuries, including impairment of mental functions, limitation of mobility, loss of sensation and inability to engage in one’s occupation. Our Atlanta automobile accident law firm are committed to providing persuasive advocacy and effective legal representation to those who are the victims of drunk, fatigued, drowsy, speeding or otherwise unsafe drivers. Our car accident lawyers have been representing victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents since 1984, including the following:

  • Chain reaction collisions
  • T-bone collisions at intersections
  • Back-over accidents in driveways or parking lots
  • Defective motor vehicle accidents
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Road departure accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Drunk driving crashes
  • Rollover accidents involving SUVs and other vehicles
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Trucking accidents including jack-knife, undercarriage and rollover crashes
  • Dangerous head-on freeway crashes
  • Bicycle collisions with cars, trucks and SUVs

There are many dangerous or unlawful driving practices that may cause a car accident. Our Atlanta automobile accident law firm works diligently to investigate our clients' claims and identify all responsible parties and causes of an accident. We have handled a vast array of motor vehicle accidents involving all varieties of vehicles, including cars, trucks, SUVs, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, bicycles, vans and other vehicles. Some of the types of negligent driving that may be the basis of liability in a car accident case include:

  • Exceeding the speed limit
  • Tailgating (following too closely)
  • Unsafe passing and lane change maneuvers
  • Drug or alcohol-impaired driving
  • Driving while distracted
  • Disregarding traffic signs or signals
  • Failure to yield
  • Drowsy driving
  • Negligence in designing and maintaining roads
  • Lack of care when manufacturing a vehicle

Regardless of the form of negligent conduct that causes a car accident, the result is often serious injury. The financial compensation available in car accident claims depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to the type of injury, severity of injury, cost of out-of-pocket expenses, extent of misconduct by the defendant and other factors. Injuries that require more invasive medical procedures or take longer to heal generally will result in more financial compensation than soft tissue injuries that heal on their own within a reasonably short time. If you suffer injuries that will have permanent effects, such as injuries limiting physical or mental functioning, these types of injuries often will justify more substantial financial recovery. When the behavior of the at-fault driver is particularly reckless, the judge or jury may award punitive damages. Punitive damages are a special type of damages that may be awarded in cases involving drunken driving, street racing and other extremely unsafe driving practices. Some common types of injuries that occur in a car accident include:

  • Fractures or broken bones
  • Dislocations and tears of tendons/ligaments
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Paralysis (quadriplegia/paraplegia)
  • Injuries to the spinal cord
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries

If you or someone you love has suffered injuries in a motor vehicle collision, you may recover a wide array of damages including lost wages, medical costs, vehicle damage, pain and suffering, diminished enjoyment of life and loss of consortium. Burial and funeral costs along with punitive damages may also be awarded based on the specific facts of the case.

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

Monroe Personal Injury Attorneys

Our Monroe Personal Injury Attorneys deliver effective legal representation and aggressive advocacy to those who have the quality of their life disrupted and suffer painful injuries caused by those who are careless or indifferent to the consequences of their actions. When injury victims suffer injuries caused by the misconduct of others, they often face formidable opposition when seeking financial compensation and a sense of justice. At Montlick and Associates, our experienced Monroe personal injury attorneys are committed to balancing the scales of justice when our clients must take on major corporations, large insurance companies, government entities, medical professionals or hospitals and other politically powerful entities with deep financial pockets.

While our principle objective is to obtain the financial recovery that our clients need to rebuild their lives following serious injury or the wrongful death of someone they love, we also understand the importance of holding negligent businesses, governmental entities and private individuals accountable for their actions. Although we understand that many people are uncomfortable engaging in litigation, civil liability can discourage unsafe behavior and prevent future injuries and loss of life. Our Monroe personal injury attorneys are dedicated to the principle that wrongdoers who cause needless injury or wrongful death because of a single-minded focus on profits, indifference or criminal acts should be held accountable for their actions. We have been fighting for justice for injury victims for almost three decades so we have the expertise and experience to handle virtually all personal injury and wrongful death claims, which includes the following:

Monroe Auto Accident Attorneys: Whether you are involved in a collision caused by a driver text messaging on a cell phone, swerving into an adjacent lane while alcohol-impaired or driving a hundred miles an hour while weaving through traffic, your entire quality of life can change instantly in a collision. While you may be reassured by the fact the other driver has insurance, insurance companies do not make billions in profits by being proactive about paying valid car accident claims. Insurance companies spend millions of dollars so that they can evade their obligation to pay valid car accident claims or pay pennies on the dollar. Our Monroe car accident attorneys understand that financial and emotional stress, combined with severe pain, can make motor vehicle accident victims vulnerable to exploitation by unethical insurance companies. Our experienced Monroe auto accident lawyers have been committed to anticipating these tactics and developing effective strategies so that our clients can obtain the financial compensation they deserve since our law firm was founded in 1984.

Monroe Dog Bite Attorneys: There are millions of people attacked by dogs each year that necessitate treatment in emergency rooms. The majority of dog bite attacks, particularly those that cause devastating physical and emotional injuries requiring re-constructive surgery or that result in fatalities, involve young children. While many may assume that dog bite injuries are minor incidents, the statistics do not support this conclusion. The average cost of a hospital stay resulting from a dog bite is in excess of $18,000, which is double the cost of the average hospital stay related to other accident-related injuries. Many dog owners make a conscious decision to own breeds of dogs that are more inclined to be vicious. One study found sixty percent of all fatal dog maulings involve pit bulls. When dog owners choose to turn a blind eye to the vicious propensities of their dog or elect not to comply with ordinances or state law that impose an obligation to maintain a dog in an enclosure or on a leash, they may be held responsible for their indifference.

Monroe Wrongful Death Attorneys: Our experienced Monroe wrongful death lawyers at Montlick and Associates understand that there is no sum of money that is going to give you back what you have lost when a loved one dies in a fatal accident or as a victim of a violent crime. Although the emotional pain of losing a close family member can be incapacitating, financial pressure may build as medical bills mount and income stops coming in. We are dedicated to representing those who die in construction accidents, car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, defective product accidents, drowning accidents or other accidents caused by negligent, reckless or intentional wrongful acts. Under Georgia law, a wrongful death claim may provide compensation both to the estate of the victim and to immediate family members for their personal damages.

Monroe Workers' Compensation Attorneys: Almost all Georgia workers are entitled to benefits under Georgia workers' compensation law. The scope of these benefits include free medical treatment, lost wages and sometimes lump sum payments for permanent disability based on the extent of one’s long-term physical disabilities. While employers are required to provide safe working conditions under OSHA and state regulations, no amount of caution can completely prevent injuries in any work environment. Whether you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, industrial accident, fall from an elevation on a construction site or you suffer a repetitive motion injury or occupational injury from exposure to toxic chemicals, our experienced Monroe workers' compensation attorneys represent clients in navigating the procedural complexities and timing requirements of the workers' compensation system. Since the recovery available under the Georgia Workers' Compensation Statute generally is far more limited than what is available in a personal injury claim, we often pursue both types of claims.

Monroe Premises Liability Attorneys: There are an overwhelming number of hazards on the premises of others that may cause injury to guests, including swimming pools, dilapidated stairs, debris in walkways, foreign substances on floors, vicious dogs and inadequate security. Generally, the law imposes a legal obligation on property owners to schedule routine inspections and correct unsafe conditions. Even when the business owner has no actual knowledge of the hazard, this does not necessarily matter if the property owner reasonably should have discovered the condition with proper scheduled maintenance practices. When you are injured on residential property, the responsibility of a property owner may be more limited. Premises liability law turns on the specific facts of the case, which can radically impact the legal duty of the property owner. Our Monroe premises liability attorneys at Montlick and Associates provide an initial evaluation so that we can determine whether you have the basis for a premises liability claim.

Monroe Defective Products Attorneys: There are millions upon millions of products, and most products are safe because the companies that produce them take care to ensure they do not expose consumers to avoidable injury. Unfortunately, some product manufacturers cut corners to reduce cost and increase revenue. While many times corporations are not aware of product defects when the product leaves their possession, this does not mean that they cannot be held liable for the defect. These types of product defects may be the result of inadequate investment in quality control procedures. In more egregious product defect cases, manufacturers or retailers may be aware of the hazard but choose to take their chances rather than incur the cost of warning the public and recalling the product. Because the businesses that design, manufacture and distribute products are in a unique position to know of product defects, they may be strictly liable for injuries caused by such flaws in the design or production of the product. If you or someone you love is injured or dies because of a defective product, our Monroe product defect attorneys have the experience and expertise to hold companies accountable for the injuries that they cause to the public.

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