When I was involved in a Automobile accident, my wife said you have to called Montlick & Associates. That was the best called I have ever made. Attorney Jason took my case and he did an exceptional Job from start to finish. He kept me informed throughout the process. Thanks Montlick & Associates for providing excellent service.
This is my second time using Montlick & Associates. I was referred to them by my brother who had previously used them for an accident he was involved in. After hiring them for my first accident case I was very impressed. They made sure I understood the whole process and was willing to answer any questions I had. My first accident case settled for 50k and my second case was for 80k. My attorney was Aaron Monick. He’s truly one of the best attorneys in the business. Needless to say, I was very happy with both outcomes. If u need an accident attorney, do yourself a huge favor and contact Montlick & Associates, I guarantee u that you won’t regret it. Their customer service and professionalism and A1!

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.

My experience with Montlick and having Ms. Sara Root alongside her team member went above the call of duty to assist me and daughter after our accident a few months. I'm very grateful to have them on my side the whole step of the way.Thanks again Ms. Sara Root, Chris Gladys and the rest of Montlick & Associates.

Jason and Kalena took great care of me! This was my second experience with Jason and his team and I truly feel seen and heard every time. This time around, the accident was extremely rough. My life was in shambles and I am still baffled at how reassuring everyone was consistently. I trust his expertise wholeheartedly. I am always satisfied with his communication and overall results. I hope I don't have to deal with an accident ever again but if I had to deal, I know where I am headed. I appreciate you all!!
I had an amazing experience with Montlick & Associates. I had my first car accident and never had to go through anything like this before. Cate and Amy were extremely helpful, reassuring, and answered any questions I had in a timely manner whether it be email or a phone call. Great communication and very friendly, satisfied with my settlement as well. If I ever have another accident I would love to get Cate and Amy again! Thank you.

Athens Slip, Trip & Fall Injury Lawyers

We Take Slips, Trips, and Falls Seriously 

We all know that mildly embarrassing feeling of tripping over our own feet. Sometimes, a trip-and-fall is simply an accident that isn’t anyone’s fault. However, the story changes when hazardous conditions on a property cause injury and pain. 

A dangerous condition on someone’s property that results in an injury to someone else can be grounds for a personal injury claim. These types of claims fall under the category known as “premises liability.” The world of product liability is extremely complicated. That’s where we come in. We can fight on your behalf so you can receive the money you deserve to heal from your injury.

Athens, GA Premises Liability Injury Attorneys

Who is Responsible?

In Georgia, an “owner or occupier” of land can be liable for damages to an injured person if they fail to “exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe.” This protection applies to anyone entering the land for a “lawful purpose” including, by way of example, visitors or customers in a shop or tenants in an apartment building. If a person is trespassing, the landowner owes a much lower standard of care, although there are exceptions. For example, minors trespass can be treated differently than adults depending on the circumstances.

A rule referred to as “superior knowledge” creates liability in cases where the owner has more knowledge about a dangerous condition than people entering the property would, and yet fails to remedy the dangerous condition or warn people of its existence.

Some examples of premises liability claims include a person falling because of a slippery floor or a broken stair. The property owner also has a duty to warn of high voltage areas, and to prevent heavy objects, such as light fixtures or pieces of ceiling, from falling on someone’s head. In what are known as “negligent security” cases, a property owner can be held liable for the violent criminal actions of other people on the property. For example, a hotel located in an area where violent crimes are frequently committed normally has a duty to take safety precautions for its guests.

You May Have Options

Even if you’re partially at fault, you could still be entitled to compensation.

Find Out Your Options

Could I Be At Fault for Not Being Careful Enough?

Often, there is more than one cause of an accident. Perhaps the floor was slippery, but you were in a hurry and that was part of the reason that you did not notice the state of the floor. Even further, your speed contributed to the severity of your injuries.

In Georgia, if you were part of the cause of your own injuries, you can still recover from a negligent property owner so long as a court finds you to be less than 50% at fault. This is because Georgia practices a modified form of what is called “comparative negligence.” Under the modified comparative negligence doctrine, an injured person who is 20% responsible for his or her injuries can still collect 80% of the damages. In a claim worth $100,000, this would mean you could collect $80,000 from the property owner. However, if you are 50% or more liable for your own injury, you cannot collect anything under Georgia law.

Experience is Everything

Our attorneys have been handling premises liability claims in Athens, Georgia for 39 years, and we know how quickly evidence disappears in these types of cases. For example, camera footage can be erased, witnesses may move out of the state, and negligent employees of property owners may change jobs. This is why immediate preservation of evidence in such cases is so important. Our premises liability attorneys work hard on behalf of each injured client in order to document their injuries and pursue their claims. Injured victims can be entitled to medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, punitive damages in some cases, and more.

Georgia’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

In Georgia, the statute of limitations generally gives injured individuals two years to file a claim following the accident that caused the injuries. If a slip and fall leads to a death, then the family is normally allowed two years following the death of the individual to file a claim. However, there are exceptions to these deadlines, making them potentially longer or shorter, so a free consultation with a Montlick attorney is always your best way forward.
