Peachtree Corners Car Accident Attorneys

Peachtree Corners is a beautiful planned community in Gwinnett County located to the northeast of Metro Atlanta. For each of its nearly 40,000 residents that need to commute, before they walk out the door, it is best that they locate the traffic tie-ups. This valuable information can allow them to avoid sitting in a traffic jam and improve their commute. Commute times spent on Metro Atlanta roads can reach nearly two hours every day. Peachtree Corners residents face a real risk of having an auto accident despite the fact that they are only 15 miles from downtown Atlanta due to the high number of autos and trucks on the road.

Georgia state statistics reveal an increasing numbers of arrests for both drunk driving (DUI/DWI) and alcohol involved fatal traffic accidents. There are also more people that text message while driving on the road. The increasing concern about the dangers of text messaging while driving has resulted in the practice being prohibited, but the penalties are relatively lax and enforcement poses a serious issue. It is presumed that many drivers in Peachtree Corners and throughout Georgia continue to text and drive. Further, adult non-commercial drivers are still allowed to use a cell phone for other uses when driving, including making cell phone calls.

It is unfortunate but highly likely that a Peachtree Corners driver will eventually be involved in an auto accident. This problem is not just limited to Peachtree Corners, but to all communities that comprise Metro Atlanta. Georgia Highway Patrol data reflecting a rise in traffic accidents reinforces the danger posed to Peachtree Corners motorists by unsafe and distracted drivers. The experienced Peachtree Corners car accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand the intense physical, financial and emotional toll experienced by auto collision victims.

Peachtree Corners Auto Accident Injury Recovery Attorney: Negligence Explained

Auto accident legal claims are most often based on the law of negligence. The legal theory of negligence regards unreasonably careless behavior that causes foreseeable injury to another. As noted, drunk driving and distracted (texting) driving are two of the most common and important types of negligent driving. It is common knowledge that people are aware of the hazards posed by drunk drivers on the road. For a criminal conviction of drunk driving, admissible evidence must establish impaired mental or physical driving skills or a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that exceeds 0.08 percent. The reality is that any amount of alcohol in one’s system may contribute to a serious Peachtree Corners car accident.

A growing body of research, including a study conducted by the University of Utah, suggest that drivers who text while driving exhibit as much impairment of their driving ability as a driver with a BAC of 0.08 percent. It is important to note that any measureable amount of alcohol may decrease driving abilities and contribute to an auto accident.

A sampling from the long list of causes of auto accidents and factors that may be the basis for fault in cases handled by our Peachtree car accident attorneys include:

  • Limited safe roads provided for public driving
  • Autos drivers not allowing bicycle right-of-way
  • Blowouts of tire causing SUV and passenger van rollovers
  • Drivers excessive speed
  • Drunk drivers, distracted or confused drivers in head on collisions
  • Blindly exiting driveways so that one runs over pedestrians
  • Drivers not focusing their attention or eyes on the road
  • Improper lane changes causing auto and motorcycle accidents
  • Bus drivers on the road without proper training, screening or supervision
  • Accidents caused by fatigued trucks drivers
  • Ignoring stop signs/signals when driving through intersections
  • Driving if sleepy and not pulling off the road
  • Staying at least 2-seconds from the car directly ahead
  • Aggressive driving (e.g. engaging in multiple unsafe traffic violations simultaneously)
  • Ignoring proper right of way

Our experienced Peachtree Corners traffic accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates aggressively negotiate with insurance companies and do not stop working for our clients until their case is resolved. Our Peachtree Corners car accident lawyers endeavor to provide our clients with an appropriate investigation of the facts, thoughtful analysis of the law and theories of liability, effective negotiation and compelling advocacy in court.

Have the Right Partner to Protect Your Quality of Life after a Peachtree Corners Car Accident

Insurance companies work diligently to minimize the amount they payout on claims. The economic reality is that insurance companies do not make billions of dollars annually by rushing to offer fair and full settlements. With the use of various experts, the insurance company may look to develop evidence and legal theories supporting the position that their insured did not cause the car accident. Where this claim cannot be supported by the evidence, the insurance company will generally dispute whether the car accident caused your injuries. The insurance company also may hire medical experts to dispute the extent or severity of any injuries.

There are many types of injuries that can disrupt your life, including so-called “soft tissue” injuries, which can be intensely painful injuries, but also broken ribs or fractures that take time to heal. Regardless, either of these varieties of injuries can still force victims to take time off from work. Accident also can cause catastrophic injury, including loss of limbs, brain damage, spinal cord damage, disfigurement from burns, paralysis and even death.

Peachtree Corners Dog Bites: Many Peachtree Corners residents have had the unpleasant experience of being on a walk only to encounter a snarling animal that decides to charge at you and attack you. While dogs can be loving pets, they can cause serious injury in a biting or mauling incident if they are not properly restrained or contained in a fenced enclosure. The injuries sustained from these attacks should not be trivialized because they are often serious and necessitate reconstructive surgery, long term treatments, and psychological counseling. As our clients’ Peachtree Corners dog attack attorneys, we investigate to develop an effective strategy based of each client’s individual case.

Peachtree Corners Premises Liability: Property owners that hold their premises open to the public generally have a legal obligation to keep the premises safe and clear of hazards. This area of law that defines the scope of the duty owed by property owners to those who come on their land is premises liability law. Premises liability law turns on a number of complex factors, such as the type of property, reason that the injury victim is on the property, nature of the hazardous condition, and other factors. There are many types of incidents that may give rise to a premises liability claim, including sidewalk slip and fall incidents, accidents in and around swimming pools, dog attack injuries, faulty security, and many other incidents.

Peachtree Corners Trucking Accidents: When trucking companies focus almost solely on profits, important safety regulations and safe driving practices may be cast aside. Our Peachtree Corners trucking accident attorneys are qualified to handle many varieties of tractor-trailer accidents, such as overloaded truck accidents, jackknife collisions, carriage under-ride accidents, fatigued driver collisions, tire blowout rollover accidents and many others.

Peachtree Corners Wrongful Death: When a loved one dies prematurely because someone failed to act in a reasonably safe fashion or a loved one is a victim of a violent crime, the impact on those left behind can be devastating. Our experienced Peachtree Corners wrongful death attorneys know that when you are dealing with the emotional loss of someone you love, the financial hardships of diminished household income can make the situation overwhelming. We know that we cannot give you back what you have lost, but we can help ease the financial pressures for our clients by seeking financial compensation to care for you and your family.

Peachtree Corners Motorcycle Accidents: The most unforgiving motor vehicles may be motorcycles. The careless and lackadaisical tendencies of many motorists in passenger vehicles can be extremely dangerous for smaller motorcycles. Because motorcycle riders have no protection from injury, these types of collisions are far more likely than other motor vehicle accidents to result in devastating permanent injuries.

Peachtree Corners Nursing Home Abuse (Nursing Home Neglect): If you suspect that a staff member of a nursing home is abusing, exploiting or neglecting your elderly loved one, we invite you to contact our Peachtree Corners nursing home attorneys at Montlick and Associates. Our Peachtree Corners nursing home abuse attorneys handle all forms of mistreatment of seniors including financial exploitation, sexual abuse, rape, physical assaults, failure to provide nutrition or hydration, and other forms of mistreatment.

Peachtree Corners Pedestrian Accidents: Although drivers are expected to respect the right of way of pedestrians, drivers often violate traffic safety laws or drive while distracted or intoxicated. Tragically, small children who have less experience at judging speed and distance, and seniors who may need more time to cross the street are disproportionately the victims of pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians have no ability to evade vehicles speeding directly toward them so they are generally at the mercy of motorists. Because of the high probability that pedestrian accidents will result in life-changing injuries, our experienced Peachtree Corners pedestrian accident lawyers are zealous advocates for injury victim.

Peachtree Corners Construction Accidents: Many construction job sites are riddled with unsafe working conditions, potential safety violations, defective equipment and improperly trained workers. Construction industry employees are consistently at the greatest risk of being involved in a fatal workplace accident. If you suffer a severe injury while working in the construction trades, our experienced Peachtree Corners construction accident attorneys may be able to pursue a workers’ compensation claim against your employer and personal injury claim against other negligent parties.

Peachtree Corners Product Liability Attorneys: Product liability claims require an understanding of the manufacturing process, the complex body of product liability law, and the resources to take on multi-national corporate entities. Any dangerous or defective product that causes injury to a consumer may give rise to a claim for money damages. Sometimes a company involved in the production, distribution or marketing of a product may be held legally responsible for injuries caused by their product even if the exact cause of the defect is not known. Because our Peachtree Corners product liability lawyers have been handling product liability cases for nearly three decades, we have the resources and experience to effectively represent our clients in these complex cases.

Peachtree Corners Workers’ Compensation Attorneys: If you are injured at work or while performing duties that benefit your employer, you typically will be entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim. Worker’s compensation benefits are provided by your employer’s insurer may provide medical care free of charge, replacement for lost wages, and sometimes payment for any permanent disabilities. Workers’ compensation claims can be based on physical injury, occupational illness, and mental stress. Because workers’ compensation claims do not provide the full measure of damages available in a personal injury action, we often pursue both types of claims for our clients.
