Product Liability Attorneys Athens Trusts

The Law You Need, The Lawyers You Trust

When we purchase a product from a store, we are generally trusting that the product is safe to use. But, sometimes the products that we buy are flawed in harmful ways. When these flaws lead to injury, you may have a personal injury claim.

Defective product injuries are frightening. Our attorneys understand the immense physical and financial toll they can take on an individual and their family. The last thing you need during this time is more worry and stress trying to get the compensation you deserve. The attorneys at Montlick fight for our clients so they can focus on healing.

I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!

Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter

On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.

I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.

Athens Dangerous or Defective Product Attorneys

What Makes A Product Defective?

Product defects are typically divided into three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to provide adequate warnings.

  • Design defects: These occur when the actual design for the product contains a flaw that makes the product dangerous. For example, If a designer develops a toy meant for very young children and babies, but the toy has small parts that present a choking hazard, then the defect is in the design.
  • Manufacturing defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when a product that is designed properly is built in such a way that makes it dangerous. For example, if a company developed a sunscreen that was perfectly effective and safe, but a manufacturer failed to include an active ingredient when mixing the sunscreen, making the product ineffective when used in the sun, the result would be a manufacturing defect.
  • Warnings: A failure to warn can also result in a dangerous product. This is the case when a product is designed and manufactured properly, but where a person could foreseeably use the product in such a way as to make it dangerous. An example would be a cleaning product that could cause injuries if it makes contact with someone’s skin. If the product did not adequately warn of the risk, the company could be found liable for the resulting injuries.

Proving Liability

Standing Out from the Rest

Montlick has the knowledge and experience you need. We have a qualified staff of legal professionals ready to fight fiercely for your rights after an injury caused by a defective or dangerous product.
Speak With Us

To prove liability in a product liability case, one must be able to demonstrate:

  • That the product was defective at the time it left the manufacturer
  • That the product was used as intended
  • That the defect directly caused harm
  • That the plaintiff can be compensated

In Georgia, a person who is injured by a product can file a suit under strict liability, or under the theory of negligence. Strict liability claims do not require that the defendant was negligent.

Who can be held responsible?
