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.
