Smyrna Auto Accident Attorneys

Serious auto accidents resulting in critical injuries frequently occur in Smyrna and throughout Georgia due to the negligence of another driver. People suffering injuries requiring medical attention and long-term care as a result of a driver's inattentiveness, bad driving habits may have a personal injury claim based on the concept of damages. If you or a loved one has been involved in such a car accident through no fault of your own, the experienced Smyrna auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been representing Smyrna car accident victims since our law firm was founded in 1984.

Smyrna Vehicle Accidents and Negligence

The majority of Smyrna auto accident claims are based on the legal concept of negligence. As a legal term, negligence means in essence that someone (the defendant) has caused injury and harm to another (the plaintiff) due to unreasonably careless behavior. Driving drunk is a classic example of negligent driving behavior. Distracted drivers who insist on texting, fiddling with the radio or arguing with someone in the car represent another major source of accident claims in Smyrna.

Factors that may constitute negligence when they contribute to Smyrna car accident include the following:

  • Speeding and/or violation of traffic regulations
  • Overworked truck drivers falling asleep at the wheel
  • Vans and SUVs experiencing rollover crashes due to defective tires
  • Unsafe lane changes, especially on busy interstates
  • Aggressive drivers and road rage incidents
  • Crashing into the back of another automobile because the driver was not paying attention

Injuries that result from driver negligence may justify compensation that covers all present and future medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, disability or disfigurement, impaired enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and other damages. Our Smyrna auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates are experienced in conducting investigations of auto accidents. Because of our success in handling hundreds of accident cases since our Smyrna car accident law firm was founded in 1984, we often are able to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, bypassing the lengthy trial process and providing clients with fair compensation without the delay and hassle of trial.

Smyrna Auto Accident Attorneys and Insurance Companies

Insurance companies do not want to pay out anything if they can avoid doing so, regardless of whether their client was at fault. Insurance companies employ experienced defense lawyers, extensive financial resources and experts who will do everything in their power to dispute and delay your case in an attempt to prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve. Our Smyrna auto accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates handle all forms of motor vehicle accidents including trucking accidents, drunk driving accidents, distracted driving accidents, hit-and-run accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and the full spectrum of other accidents.

Injuries such as broken bones, internal injuries, concussions and severe whiplash incurred as a result of negligent drivers necessitate adequate financial compensation so that you can seek the best medical care and protect your family’s financial standard of living. If you or a loved one have lost the ability to earn a living, the Smyrna auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates offer legal representation founded on the principles of diligence, high ethical standards and personalized attention.

Smyrna Personal Injury Attorneys

Montlick and Associates has been providing effective legal representation to those of Smyrna who are injured by the unreasonably unsafe and intentional misconduct of individuals, businesses and public entities since our Georgia personal injury law firm was founded in 1984. Our experienced Smyrna personal injury attorneys understand that when you are involved in an accident because of the failure of a property owner to safely maintain their property, a trucking company's refusal to adequately screen and train drivers or a motorist's choice to drive while intoxicated, your life can change dramatically in an instant. Montlick and Associates is committed to representing injury victims and those who lose loved ones seek the financial compensation necessary to rebuild their lives in the wake of a serious accident or violent crime. Our law firm handles the full scope of injury cases including the following:

Smyrna Motor Vehicle Accidents: Thousands of innocent individuals are seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents each day. Many suffer needlessly due to another driver speeding, not paying attention, or drinking and driving. This type of unreasonably unsafe conduct (i.e. negligence) is compensable by law and can provide the funds necessary for you to pay medical bills for short or long-term care as well as cover your other forms of tangible and intangible loss.

Smyrna Trucking Collisions: Victims involved in truck collisions tend to suffer life-long, permanent injuries requiring expensive medical care. However, some tractor-trailer accident victims who are injured in truck collisions fight a losing battle to receive compensation because trucking businesses routinely employ vast resources to avoid paying trucking accident claims. Victims sustaining injuries resulting from trucking collisions should seek out an experienced trucking lawyer at Montlick and Associates who will have knowledge of trucking regulations and practices.

Abuse/Neglect in Smyrna Nursing Homes: It is a sad fact that neglect and abuse frequently occur in nursing homes. Malnutrition, dehydration, physical/emotional abuse, financial exploitation, and medication errors are just some of the issues documented repeatedly in cases involving nursing home abuse cases in Smyrna and throughout the country. Fortunately, victims and their loved ones can seek justice by using the legal process to obtain fair compensation and punish those at fault.

Smyrna Slip and Fall Accidents: Businesses that turn a blind eye to dangerous conditions on their premises can result in slips and falls that often cause serious injury. Whether the hazardous condition is untreated ice, improper lighting, badly broken sidewalks or wet floors, accidents caused by these businesses or even government entities may be compensable under premises liability law.

Smyrna Wrongful Death Actions: Wrongful death sometimes occurs due to the misconduct or willful negligence of a third party. An individual who causes death to another because of indifferent, unsafe, or violent acts may be a potential defendant in a wrongful death suit. Wrongful death suits frequently involve construction site accidents, assaults resulting from inadequate security or auto accident deaths stemming from the actions of negligent drivers.

Smyrna Construction Accidents: Because construction sites are rife with hazardous chemicals, heavy machinery, flimsy scaffoldings and exposed electrical wires, serious accidents that could have been prevented occur every day to innocent people. Suffering bodily harm on a Smyrna construction site means you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits as well as compensation from negligent third parties.

Smyrna Dog Bites: Negligent owners, who neglect to keep vicious dogs properly restrained, place innocent children and others in danger of being injured in a dog mauling or biting incident. Violation of leash laws, negligence in preventing a dog attack or owning an aggressive dog that bites someone may justify a personal injury lawsuit seeking damages for injuries including reconstructive surgery as well as other forms of loss.

Smyrna Pedestrian Accidents: Each year, distracted, careless and drunk drivers elect to operate motor vehicles. Smyrna city streets can be treacherous for people who chose to walk or run for physical fitness purposes. In addition, unsafe road designs and lack of sufficient crosswalks heighten unsafe conditions in downtown Smyrna. When you are injured in a pedestrian accident, you may suffer life-altering injuries, which cause daunting medical bills and long periods of disability from employment.

Smyrna Motorcycle Accidents: Statistically motorcyclists are more prone to be injured by a negligent driver in a motor vehicle accident than any other type of motorist. Drivers who do not exercise safe driving practices often fail to see motorcyclists because they are distracted or impaired. As a result, motorcyclists repeatedly suffer from serious or permanently debilitating injuries, such as skull fractures and spinal distress that make compensation for present and future medical bills critical to obtaining the fullest physical recovery.

Smyrna Workers' Compensation Claims: Work related injuries occur in any type of industry and can prevent one from working and entail significant medical treatment. Injuries such as repetitive motion injuries, occupational exposure to hazardous substances or stress claims caused by unfair treatment may provide a basis for a workers' compensation claim. Our successful workers' compensation attorneys may be able to seek medical benefits, wage replacement and compensation for disability from employment. Depending on the specific circumstances of your situation, we may even be able to initiate a personal injury claim against parties' other than your employer who contributed to your work related accident.

Smyrna Product Liability (Defective Products): Companies are responsible for providing safe and defect-free merchandise to Smyrna consumers. Injuries caused by defective items may be compensable under laws safeguarding consumers from defective design, manufacturing or marketing practices.
