Atlanta Automobile Accident Lawyer

The vast network of roads that blankets the U.S. that includes highways, freeways, city streets and obscure country roads cover a cumulative distance of 4 million miles. A quarter of million vehicles drive trillions of miles each year on these roadways. The enormous number of vehicles traveling this vast pathway of roads results in a mind boggling number of car accidents – 6 million per year. The high volume of car accidents means that there is a high risk that you will be involved in a collision that may cause serious injury or the death of a love one.

If you are involved in a serious car accident, you may be shaken, traumatized and suffering intense pain. Unfortunately, the evidence to substantiate you claim for monetary compensation for your injuries or loss of someone you love can disappear if you do not take prompt steps to preserve your Atlanta auto accident claim. Further, the legal issues and insurance obstacles cannot be put on hold while you are recovering and trying to get back on your feet. This is why you should contact our proven Atlanta automobile accident lawyer at Montlick and Associates if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. We have been aggressively pursuing the rights of car accident victims to be compensated by negligent drivers since our law firm was founded in 1984.

Because of our long tenure representing those injured in all variety of motor vehicle accidents we are qualified to handle virtually any type of motor vehicle accident including:

  • Single Car Crashes
  • Run Off the Road Collisions
  • Head-On Impact Accidents
  • Rear-End Impact Crashes

While the legal basis upon which virtually all Atlanta car accidents settlements and lawsuits are based is negligence by the other driver, there are many forms of unsafe driving that may constitute negligent driving. Negligence in the broadest sense means an act or omission that constitutes a departure from ordinary care resulting in foreseeable injury to others. A victim of driver negligence involved in a motor vehicle collision may include the driver of a passenger vehicle, motorcyclist, bicyclist or even a pedestrian. The act or omission that constitute the negligent conduct in a Atlanta car accident case may range from failing to stop at a red light to driving while intoxicated. The litany of mistakes and poor driving practices that may form the basis for a Atlanta car accident claim may include the following types of conduct and more:

  • Traveling faster than the speed limit
  • Disregard traffic signs
  • Tailgating another vehicle
  • Illegal turns
  • Changing lanes without checking one’s blind spot
  • Texting or talking on a mobile phone
  • Alcohol impaired driving
  • Failure to adhere to right of way rules
  • Reckless or aggressive driving practices
  • Driver inattention

 

Serious Car Accident Injuries May Have a Dramatic Impact on One’s Quality of Life

While the examples above represent only a small sampling of the types of poor driving or driver indifference that may cause a serious Atlanta car accident that may result in catastrophic life-changing injuries. Many people involved in motor vehicle collisions suffer the permanent loss of mental function, physical abilities and lifelong emotional trauma. At Montlick and Associates, each experienced Atlanta automobile accident lawyer understands that serious injuries can derail your life and work diligently to seek the compensation our clients need to get their lives back on track.

  • Traumatic injury to the brain
  • Sever damage to the back or spinal cord
  • Loss of an extremity
  • Decapitation
  • Severe full thickness burns
  • Whiplash of the neck and head
  • Concussions
  • Soft tissue injuries like torn ligaments or tendons
  • Dislocation of joints
  • Wrongful death

Our dedicated team of automobile accident lawyers understand that most car accidents are avoidable if the other party exercises just a little more care and caution. Most unsafe driving behavior by a motorist that leads to a collision involves the conscious decision by a driver to engage in an unsafe driving practice. Our Atlanta auto accident legal team provides legal representation for a broad range of damages, including economic losses like treatment related costs, ongoing physical or emotional therapy, lost present and future income as well as intangible losses for enduring excruciating pain and extreme stress. While the exact types of damages available in your car accident case may differ, the best way to learn about the financial compensation to which you may be entitled is to contact our law firm for an initial case evaluation.

Our Stockbridge personal injury attorneys strive to provide exemplary legal representation and have extensive experience as injury lawyers. While our reputation as a proven and successful personal injury law firm motivates many insurance carriers to settle, we have built our reputation on a willingness to take cases to trial and prevail. We handle the full gamut of personal injury cases from accidents involving construction sites, motor vehicles, slip and fall hazards, and medical malpractice to intentional acts that cause injury, such as violent attacks, road rage and sexual assaults.

The Stockbridge personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand that injury victims experience a diverse spectrum of challenges, such as enduring physical pain, struggling with financial hardships, and overcoming emotional distress and concerns about the future. Our Stockbridge personal injury lawyers exercise skill, experience and compassion when representing those who have been injured by third parties. We have been zealous advocates for the rights of injury victims since our Stockbridge personal injury law firm was established in 1984. The chaos that a serious accident can create in the lives of accident victims can be paralyzing when they are already coping with trying to recover from physical and emotional injuries. Our Stockbridge personal injury lawyers can handle negotiations with insurance companies and navigating legal obstacles so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. While we have handled a long list of types of personal injury settlements and lawsuits during our almost three decades of serving Stockbridge clients, some of the most common cases we handle include:

Stockbridge Auto Accidents: When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may suffer severe debilitating injuries or the loss of a loved one. Our Stockbridge motor vehicle accident attorneys handle all types of vehicle related collision claims, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents (tractor-trailer collisions), pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and all other types of vehicle accidents. Liability in motor vehicle accidents is typically based on the unreasonably unsafe conduct of a third party (e.g. negligence). Some of the most typical forms of negligence that cause Stockbridge car accidents or other motor vehicle accidents include intoxicated drivers, distracted drivers, violations of the Georgia Rules of the Road, speeding and similar types of unsafe driving practices. If you are injured in an auto accident, motorcycle collision, trucking collision or other form of motor vehicle accident, our experienced and dedicated team of motor vehicle accident attorneys investigates our clients’ accidents and provides aggressive advocacy.

Stockbridge Tractor-Trailer Accidents (Trucking Accidents): When you are injured in a tractor-trailer crash in Stockbridge or the surrounding area, you face unique issues in pursuing a commercial trucking accident claim. Legal claims involving trucking accidents in Stockbridge entail dealing with trucking insurance providers that have enormous resources, navigating a complex myriad of trucking industry regulations, and working diligently to prevent destruction or manipulation of evidence. Our experienced tractor-trailer accident attorneys have the resources and experience to provide effective legal representation in these complex motor vehicle accident claims.

Stockbridge Motorcycle Collisions: When riding a motorcycle, the rider has virtually no protection from injury when careless or inattentive drivers cause a rider to lay their bike down. While a helmet can substantially reduce the risk of serious head injuries and prevent fatalities, there is no real effective way to provide much physical protection to motorcyclists. If you are involved in a Stockbridge motorcycle collision, it can result in astronomical medical bills and extended periods of time off work. We understand the challenge of trying to overcome these financial hardships while you are dealing with the pain of your injuries and potentially grueling physical therapy. We are passionate about seeking the monetary recovery motorcycle accident victims typically need to move past serious injuries.

Stockbridge Dog Bites (Dog Attacks & Dog Maulings): Dog bites and other dog attack injuries often result in much more than a minor puncture of the skin. Stockbridge dog attacks involving aggressive dogs may result in broken bones, disfigurement, internal injuries and even wrongful death. Georgia law imposes a legal duty on dog owners to properly restrain or enclose their dog if they have reason to know it is aggressive or violent. Even if the owner lacks such knowledge, the owner is still required to exercise ordinary care to prevent injury to others and to comply with leash law ordinances. When a Stockbridge dog owner fails to comply with these legal duties, their homeowner’s insurance may provide monetary compensation for your injuries.

Stockbridge Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries: Many people think Stockbridge slip, trip or fall accidents are relatively minor incidents that cannot result in serious injury. The reality is that many dangerous falls result in serious injury, including broken bones, fractures, spinal cord injuries, head injuries and even wrongful death. In fact, slip, trip and fall accidents are a leading cause of fatalities among senior citizens. Property owner that are conducting a business on their premises have an obligation to conduct reasonable maintenance and either warn of hidden hazards or make them safe depending on the specific circumstances. The successful pursuit of a Stockbridge slip and fall claim requires an intense fact based inquiry so it is important to seek legal advice promptly before critical evidence disappears.

Stockbridge Wrongful Death Actions: When you lose someone you love because of the negligent or intentional acts of another, it can be an enormous burden to cope with the grief of one’s loss and the financial challenges that such a loss may cause. Dealing with insurance adjusters and legal procedures can distract from the emotional process of grieving for your loved one. Our experienced Stockbridge wrongful death attorneys have pursued financial recovery for many wrongful death victims and families just like you. We invite you to contact us because we handle the legal and insurance issues for our clients so they can focus on their emotional recovery.

Stockbridge Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse: We have represented many families that have discovered that an elderly loved one is being victimized by a caregiver in their home of a nursing home facility. Our Stockbridge nursing home neglect and abuse attorneys are committed to advocating for the safe and proper care of seniors and obtaining monetary recovery for those who are victimized by poorly screened and trained staff as well as indifferent management or hiring practices by nursing home management. Whether your elderly loved one has suffered physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse, our experienced Stockbridge nursing home abuse and neglect law firm investigates such claims for our clients and works diligently to hold those who commit elder abuse and neglect accountable for their actions.

Stockbridge Construction Industry Accidents: Construction workers face an extremely dangerous work environment on an almost daily basis. The varied hazards on Stockbridge construction sites include heavy equipment accidents, falls from defective scaffoldings or ladders, electrocution accidents from power lines, trenches with improper shoring and other construction site hazards. While most construction workers in Stockbridge recognize that they may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, they do not know that they may also be able to seek more extensive compensation in a personal injury claim. If you contact our experienced Stockbridge construction accident lawyers, we can analyze the facts involved in your accident and advise you regarding whether we can seek workers’ compensation benefits and personal injury damages.

Stockbridge Workers’ Compensation Claims: If you are injured on the job, the financial hardships of medical expenses and missed work can be challenging. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand the complex legal procedures involved in successful pursuit of the full measure of workers’ compensation benefits. We assist our clients injured in workplace injuries or while engaged in services on behalf of their employer so that our clients have the ability to support their family and recover fully.

Stockbridge Pedestrian Injuries: When the human body is struck by thousands of pounds of steel moving at high rates of speed, the results are typically permanent injuries and far too frequently fatalities. Pedestrian accidents often are caused by drivers that fail to pay attention, drive while under the influence of alcohol, drive at high rates of speed near intersections or school zones or otherwise drive unsafely. If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, the experienced Stockbridge pedestrian accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates may be able to represent you in pursuing compensation for your injuries. In some cases, we may even pursue a claim against a public entity when the design of the roadway contributes to a Stockbridge pedestrian accident.

Stockbridge Product Liability Claims: Thousands of people are injured throughout the U.S. every year by defective or unsafe products. The legal rules for imposing liability on a company that is responsible for placing a defective or dangerous product on the market is product liability law. The law makes it easier to make a product liability claim for injuries than many other types of personal injury claims. Product liability law does not necessarily require that you prove the specific substandard conduct that caused the defect nor which entity in the chain of manufacturing or distribution is the party that created the hazard. Responsibility lies with every entity in the chain of production and distribution. If you are injured by a dangerous or defective product, you should save all of the parts of the product, packaging and instructions and call Montlick and Associates so we can evaluate your claim.
