Because we have been effectively representing Savannah auto accident victims for almost three decades, our experienced Savannah auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand that a serious auto collision can turn one’s life upside down. If you are involved in a Savannah auto accident that causes significant injuries, it may impact every aspect of your life including your family dynamics, job performance and enjoyment of ordinary daily activities. The task of coping with excruciating pain, lost income and anxiety about the future can be extremely daunting. The stress of fielding inquiries from insurance adjusters and complying with legal procedures can quickly overwhelm you. Our experienced Savannah auto accident attorneys have been providing effective legal representation while pursuing the best interests of our clients since our firm was founded in 1984.

If you drive the roads of Savannah on a regular basis, you know that there are many different varieties of Savannah auto accidents involving cars, sports utility vehicles, motorcycles, commercial trucks and buses just to name a few examples. Regardless of the type of vehicle that someone is operating, those that navigate Savannah roadways have a legal obligation to take reasonable care to avoid causing an auto accident. This obligation includes compliance with traffic laws, concentrating on one’s driving and other driving conduct designed to avoid causing a serious Savannah auto accident. While most motor vehicle accidents are caused by unsafe drivers, they may also occur when public entities fail to provide safe roads or vehicle manufacturers produce defective vehicles or vehicle components.

It is not the case that every Savannah auto accident necessarily entitles you to recover damages in a personal injury settlement or judgment. Successfully pursuing a personal injury claim based on a Savannah auto accident entails establishing that another party has caused the accident and your resulting injuries because of negligent or reckless conduct. Negligent conduct in this context is basically conduct that poses an unreasonable risk of harm to others, which may include violating traffic safety laws like exceeding the speed limit, driving while intoxicated, ignoring traffic signals and other forms of unsafe driving. If a judge or jury determines that a defendant’s driving is extremely unsafe and dangerous (i.e. reckless), this may result in an award of punitive damages to punish the driver and provide a deterrent to engaging in similar conduct in the future. Punitive damages are common in cases involving drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol and may exceed all other forms of damages combined.
