Roswell Auto Accident Attorneys
Although car accidents comprise a substantial portion of the personal injury cases we handle at Montlick and Associates, these cases are anything but routine. Each Roswell car accident case poses unique factual questions regarding liability, severity of injuries and the causal relationship between the negligence of a third party and your injuries. Our experienced Roswell car accident lawyers have been providing legal advice and representation to Roswell car accident victims for almost three decades.
Our Roswell car accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have extensive experience providing effective representation in Roswell car accident claims. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to analyze the physical dynamics and fault of a car accident, the medical evidence used to evaluate injuries and the accounting and economic principles to accurately calculate losses. The insurance industry is a billion dollar industry, but this enormous revenue is not made by paying claims. Insurance companies have a massive war chest of financial resources, a stable of savvy insurance adjusters and a team of defense attorneys that develop strategies to deny, delay or reduce the compensation they pay on claims. It is important to understand that insurance companies handle so many car accident claims that it is virtually impossible to fully protect your interest without the benefit of an experienced Roswell car accident attorneys behind you.
The legal basis for pursuing a claim for compensation arising out of a Roswell car accident is usually based on some form of negligence. Negligence in the context of a car accident is really just a legal term to describe unreasonably unsafe behavior that causes injuries or property loss because of an auto collision. While in most cases the negligent conduct will be unsafe driving by another motorist, this is not always the case. Sometimes Roswell car accidents may be caused by a vehicle defect, such as an SUV being top heavy and prone to rollover when sudden evasive steering maneuvers are performed. Some Roswell car accidents are even caused by unsafe design features, inadequate maintenance or failure to make appropriate road alterations that result in a road that poses a hazard to motorists. While there are many causes of Roswell car accidents, some examples include the following:
- Drivers multi-tasking while driving (i.e. texting or talking on cell phones)
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving at an unsafe speed
- Executing illegal turns
- Driving when tired or fatigued
- Failure to perform vehicle maintenance (i.e. old tires or worn brake pads)
- Roadway defects in design or maintenance
- Insufficient following distance
- Non-compliance with traffic lights and stop or yield signs
- Violation of right of way rules
While there are many other types of hazardous conduct that may cause a Roswell auto accident, these are some of the more frequent types of negligent or reckless conduct. If you are involved in an auto accident in Roswell, you should avoid speaking with the potential at-fault parties or their insurance companies. These communications should be conducted by an experienced Rowell car accident lawyer at Montlick and Associates so that you do not compromise your case by making statements that may later be misconstrued to undermine your Roswell car accident claim.
The other party’s insurance company may also try to persuade you to sign documents and even offer a check. It is essential that you not sign any paperwork or accept a check from the insurance company until you have obtained legal advice. Insurance companies are not in the business of “giving away money” so if they are attempting to give you a check and asking you to sign documents it is fairly safe to assume that your Roswell auto accident claim may be worth far more than the check being offered. Our Roswell car accident attorneys provide a free consultation so you have nothing to lose by having us evaluate your claim and advise you regarding the wisdom of accepting the insurance company’s settlement.
When someone is injured in a Roswell auto collision, they may suffer a wide range of injuries ranging from less serious injuries like lacerations, hyperextensions, dislocations, whiplash and broken bones to permanent injuries like amputation of limbs, spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries and even wrongful death. Our experienced Roswell auto accident attorneys may be able to seek many varieties of economic and non-economic damages depending on the specific facts of your Roswell car accident case, including but not limited to the following:
- Property or vehicle damage
