What Does a Newnan Car Accident Lawyer Do?
Simply put, the purpose of a car accident attorney is to assist harmed individuals in seeking a fair and rightful financial compensation amount for the bills (and suffering) that the person has incurred. Despite a common confusion, the party normally being “sued” is not an actual negligent person, but the insurance company of that person.
These insurance companies attempt to intimidate innocent victims of car accidents by making them feel undervalued. They will try to settle as low and as quickly as you allow them to. Don’t allow them to. Consult with a Newnan car accident lawyer who knows what is best and can provide the legal advice you need in a situation like this. Contact us now.

At our Newnan personal injury law firm, we know that a car accident, fall on a construction site or injury from a defective product can disrupt your life and force you to overcome physical pain, extreme emotional hardships, and difficult financial challenges.
Our experienced Newnan personal injury lawyers have been representing injury victims in the full range of personal injury cases throughout Georgia since the firm was founded in 1984. Our law firm employs the necessary tools in the pursuit of our goal of obtaining the best recovery for our clients including investigation of the facts, analysis of the law, artfully drafted pleadings and motions, productive negotiations and persuasive advocacy. Montlick and Associates have represented clients in a vast array of personal injury cases including:
Newnan Auto Accidents: When our clients suffer injury caused by a negligent driver, including impaired (drunk drivers, drugged drivers, etc.) and distracted drivers (calling or texting), we are committed to seeking compensation for our clients to aid their recovery and discouraging such unsafe driving practices by holding inattentive, careless or indifferent drivers accountable.
Newnan Dog Bites: When a person is attacked by any animal not properly restrained by their owner or that has a history of aggressiveness, our team of Newnan dog bite lawyers at Montlick and Associates pursue the financial compensation our clients need for psychiatric counseling, plastic surgery, and other medical treatment. There are several legal theories we may employ to establish the liability of a dog owner. Most homeowner’s policies will cover injuries caused by the homeowner’s dog. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to claim that dog bite victims, particularly small children, antagonized the dog. Our Newnan dog bite attorneys understand the importance of effectively diffusing such claims.
Newnan Premises Liability: Our team of Newnan premises liability attorneys represent those injured by the failure of property owners to adequately address unsafe conditions on their premises, such as slip and fall hazards, animal bites, faulty security, swimming pool accidents, and other potential dangers. While business owners that hold their property open to the public generally have a duty to make their premises safe, the scope and nature of a property owner’s duty to those who come on their property varies based on the reason for the visit, nature of the property, type of hazard and other factors. Our experienced Newnan premises liability attorneys can analyze the facts of your case and advise you regarding whether we can represent you in a premises liability case.
Newnan Trucking Accidents: Due to the overall size of commercial trucks, the serious injury often results when you are involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer. Even though there is an extensive scheme of regulations in effect on both the federal and state levels, it is not uncommon that trucking firms neglect the issues of safety to garner higher profits. Our Newnan tractor-trailer accident attorneys understand trucking industry regulations and customary practices so we know how to identify violations, including when a trucking company attempts to hide incriminating evidence.
Newnan Wrongful Death: When the intentional or negligent behavior of a third party results in the death of someone close to your heart, the loss is overwhelming and emotionally devastating. At Montlick and Associates, our Newnan wrongful death attorneys provide effective legal assistance delivered with sensitivity to the emotional challenges faced by the surviving family members of a fatal accident or criminal act. We can seek compensation for injuries and loss suffered by both the decedent and the decedent’s family, which may provide critical financial support in the wake of the loss of a family breadwinner.
Newnan Motorcycle Accidents: If you regularly ride a motorcycle, you are keenly aware of the tendency of many drivers to show a lack of consideration to motorcyclists or simply fail to pay attention. While drivers of passenger vehicles have a reasonable window within which to respond when another driver makes an error, a motorcyclist may have a virtually non-existent margin for error. When motorcycle accidents occur, the result is typically significant injuries or even wrongful death because of the rider’s lack of protection. Out Newnan motorcycle accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates put our best efforts to obtain the compensation our compensation need when suffering this type of life-altering injuries.
Newnan Nursing Home Neglect (Abuse): With the baby boomers reaching retirement age, there is increased strain on our financial resources to provide the necessary care for our older generation. Due to limited resources and the desire to increase profits, many nursing homes provide insufficient care and skeleton staffing. Many elderly residents are exploited financially, physically or mentally. When a nursing home fails to fulfill its obligation to provide care and protection from abuse to elderly residents, this may be the basis for financial compensation.
Newnan Pedestrian Accidents: If a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, such as a car, truck or SUV, it can result in traumatic injury and even a potential fatality. Serious pedestrian accidents most commonly impact those who have less maturity or mobility, such as young children and older individuals. It is not uncommon for insurance representatives to claim that a pedestrian caused an accident by using defenses like the “darting child defense.” Our dedicated pedestrian accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have a track record for successfully representing injured pedestrians against both negligent drivers and public entities that fail to implement reasonable safety precautions to protect pedestrians.
Newnan Slip and Fall Accidents: Business owners have a general obligation to make their store or business free of non-obvious hazards like wet or slippery surfaces. Many people presume that Newnan slip and fall accidents are relatively minor accidents. However, many slips and fall victims suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and even wrongful death. When we evaluate a Newnan slip and fall claim, we may consider the inspection and maintenance policies of the business, the duration and obviousness of the hazard, opportunities that employees had to correct the hazard, and other relevant facts.
Be aware of your legal rights! If you have been injured because of the negligence, intentional misconduct, or recklessness of a third party, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Call now for a FREE CONSULTATION with Montlick and Associates experienced Newnan personal injury attorneys.
