Newnan Personal Injury Attorneys

For nearly three decades, our dedicated Newnan personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have provided legal representation to thousands of clients facing serious injury or the wrongful death of a loved one due to the careless or intentional wrongful action of third parties. With our firm commitment to our clients’ satisfaction as a foundation; we take great pride in providing compassionate and effective legal representation to personal injury victims in Newnan. At our Newnan personal injury law firm, we know that a car accident, fall on a construction site or injury from a defective product can disrupt your life and force you to overcome physical pain, extreme emotional hardships and difficult financial challenges.

Our experienced Newnan personal injury lawyers have been representing injury victims in the full range of personal injury cases throughout Georgia since the firm was founded in 1984. Our law firm employs the necessary tools in our pursuit of our goal of obtain the best recovery for our clients including investigation of the facts, analysis of the law, artfully drafted pleadings and motions, productive negotiations and persuasive advocacy. Montlick and Associates has represented clients in a vast array of personal injury cases including:

Newnan Auto Accidents: When our clients suffer injury caused by a negligent driver, including impaired (drunk drivers, drugged drivers, etc.) and distracted drivers (calling or texting), we are committed to seeking compensation for our clients to aid their recovery and discouraging such unsafe driving practices by holding inattentive, careless or indifferent drivers accountable.

Newnan Dog Bites: When a person is attacked by any animal not properly restrained by their owner or that has a history of aggressiveness, our team of Newnan dog bite lawyers at Montlick and Associates pursue the financial compensation our clients need for psychiatric counseling, plastic surgery and other medical treatment. There are several legal theories we may employ to establish liability of a dog owner. Most homeowner’s policies will cover injuries caused by the homeowner’s dog. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to claim that dog bite victims, particularly small children, antagonized the dog. Our Newnan dog bite attorneys understand the importance of effectively diffusing such claims.

Newnan Premises Liability: Our team of Newnan premises liability attorneys represents those injured by the failure of property owners to adequately address unsafe conditions on their premises, such as slip and fall hazards, animal bites, faulty security, swimming pool accidents and other potential dangers. While business owners that hold their property open to the public generally have a duty to make their premises safe, the scope and nature of a property owner’s duty to those who come on their property varies based on the reason for the visit, nature of the property, type of hazard and other factors. Our experienced Newnan premises liability attorneys can analyze the facts of your case and advise you regarding whether we can represent you in a premises liability case.

Newnan Trucking Accidents: Due to the overall size of commercial trucks, serious injury often results when you are involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer. Even though there is an extensive scheme of regulations in effect on both the federal and state levels, it is not uncommon that trucking firms neglect the issues of safety to garner higher profits. Our Newnan tractor-trailer accident attorneys understand trucking industry regulations and customary practices so we know how to identify violations, including when a trucking company attempts to hide incriminating evidence.

Newnan Wrongful Death: When the intentional or negligent behavior of a third party results in the death of someone close to your heart, the loss is overwhelming and emotionally devastating. At Montlick and Associates, our Newnan wrongful death attorneys provide effective legal assistance delivered with sensitivity to the emotional challenges faced by the surviving family members of a fatal accident or criminal act. We can seek compensation for injuries and loss suffered by both the decedent and the decedent’s family, which may provide critical financial support in the wake of the loss of a family breadwinner.

Newnan Motorcycle Accidents: If you regularly ride a motorcycle, you are keenly aware of the tendency of many drivers to show a lack of consideration to motorcyclists or simply fail to pay attention. While drivers of passenger vehicles have a reasonable window within which to respond when another driver makes an error, a motorcyclist may have a virtually non-existent margin for error. When motorcycle accidents occur, the result is typically significant injuries or even wrongful death because of the rider’s lack of protection. Out Newnan motorcycle accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates put our best efforts to obtain the compensation our compensation need when suffering this type of life-altering injuries.

Newnan Nursing Home Neglect (Abuse): With the baby boomers reaching retirement age, there is increased strain on our financial resources to provide the necessary care for our older generation. Due to limited resources and the desire to increase profits, many nursing homes provide insufficient care and skeleton staffing. Many elderly residents are exploited financially, physically or mentally. When a nursing home fails to fulfill its obligation to provide care and protection from abuse to elderly residents, this may be the basis for financial compensation.

Newnan Pedestrian Accidents: If a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, such as a car, truck or SUV, it can result in traumatic injury and even a potential fatality. Serious pedestrian accidents most commonly impact those who have less maturity or mobility, such as young children and older individuals. It is not uncommon for insurance representatives to claim that a pedestrian caused an accident by using defenses like the “darting child defense.” Our dedicated pedestrian accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have a track record for successfully representing injured pedestrians against both negligent drivers and public entities that fail to implement reasonable safety precautions to protect pedestrians.

Newnan Slip and Fall Accidents: Business owners have a general obligation to make their store or business free of non-obvious hazards like wet or slippery surfaces. Many people presume that Newnan slip and fall accidents are relative minor accidents. However, many slip and fall victims suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and even wrongful death. When we evaluate a Newnan slip and fall claim, we may consider the inspection and maintenance policies of the business, the duration and obviousness of the hazard, opportunities that employees had to correct the hazard, and other relevant facts.

Newnan Auto Accident Attorneys

Car accidents happen every single day, every hour of the day, across United States; and the reality is that every year more car accidents are happening in smaller cities outside the Atlanta metro area. Newnan has become one of the fastest growing cities in Georgia and serves as the county seat of Coweta County. Unfortunately, the Newnan’s population growth has taxed the ability of public entities to improve infrastructure and expand roads and highways. This mix of more cars on the road without an accompanying increase in infrastructure development means more Newnan car accidents resulting in significant injuries and even the loss of loved ones.

If you were recently injured in a Newnan car accident, our experienced Newnan auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates may be able to represent you in seeking compensation for chronic pain, emotional distress, loss of wages and other losses that may contribute to long-term financial hardships. Our experienced Newnan car accident lawyers help Newnan car accident victims pursue compensation for rehabilitation and medical care so they can maintain a high quality of life while recovering physically and emotionally.

Our experienced Newnan car accident attorneys have experience dealing with unscrupulous insurance company adjusters who may use dishonest strategies to trick accident victims to sign away their rights and deny legitimate Newnan car accident claims. Some of the tactics that auto accident insurance companies may use against a car accident lawyer may include the following:

Encouraging Compromising Victim Statements: If you are contacted by an insurance adjuster after your Newnan car accident, the accident victim should direct the adjuster to the victim’s Newnan car accident attorney. Why is a step important? Insurance companies are well known to use an accident victim’s statement against them in court as evidence, which can minimize or deny the accident victim’s claim. You should never discuss your car accident with an insurance company adjuster unless you have an experience car accident lawyer present to protect your interests.

Delays: Time is of the essence after a car accident; insurance companies know this. A typical insurance company adjuster may delay the settlement process for as long as possible to promote anxiety from a car accident victim. The adjuster knows that the accumulation of medical bills combined with a loss of income may motivate a Newnan car accident victim to sign a settlement that is far less than the true value of the car accident claim.

Sham Settlements with Release of Liability: Because insurance companies know that time is on their side, insurance companies have also been known to exploit accident victims by getting them to sign a release of liability in exchange for a settlement that is far less than what they deserve. Any car accident victim who signs a release of liability without consulting an experienced Newnan car accident lawyer at Montlick and Associates risks signing away any future claims to injuries that have not yet been discovered, especially if the accident is very recent.

More Delays: In Georgia, car accident victims are legally required to file a claim for a car accident claim within a certain period of time. This time limit is also known as the statute of limitations. It is very important because failure to comply with this timing restriction will typically bar even valid claims for recovery. Insurance company adjusters know this and may drag out negotiations with the accident victim for as long as possible so that the accident victim runs afoul of the statute of limitations.

These are just a few potential challenges that car accident victims face, but our experienced Newnan car accident attorneys stand up for our clients rights and provide effective assistance in dealing with the unscrupulous practices often employed by insurance companies. Insurance companies will also be far more hesitant to engage in these sharp practices if they know that you are represented by one of our Newnan car accident attorneys. Our Newnan car accident law firm can handle all types of car accidents including those involving the following:

  • Distractions like talking on a cell phone, texting, working on a computer, sending an e-mail or talking with a friend
  • Lack of vehicle care or proper maintenance
  • Traffic violations like tailgating, speeding, aggressive driving, driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
  • Unlicensed or under aged driver
  • Accidents caused by not check blind spots or unsafe lane changes
  • Run off the road or rollover collisions
  • Collisions caused by the failure to modify driving to current weather conditions

One of the sad realities of car accidents is that they are often caused by drivers who were inconsiderate or unsafe. These accidents can often result in injuries that are debilitating and require long-term care. Some of the most serious injuries that may be caused by a Newnan car accident are injuries involving the spinal cord or injuries to the brain that can permanently impair an individual’s mental and physical abilities.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious auto collision, our experienced Newnan car accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates may be able to seek a wide range of damages to compensate your for your injuries including:

  • Lost salary, commission, or tips
  • Any income that will be lost in the future due to ongoing rehabilitation or medical disability
  • Ongoing expenses that are related to hospitalization, medical care and or ongoing medical treatment
  • Damages for suffering, emotional distress and pain that were the result of the accident
  • Expenses related to wrongful death
  • Negative impact on your marital relationship
  • Property damage

Time is of the essence for anyone who was involved in a Newnan car accident because critical time limits apply and evidence can disappear. The longer you try to handle your claim without the benefit of an experienced Newnan car accident attorney, the greater the possibility that you will fall into litigation traps set by the other driver’s insurance company. Be aware of your legal rights! If you have been injured because of the negligence, intentional misconduct, or recklessness of a third party, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
