Lake City Personal Injury Law Firm
Our Lake City personal injury attorneys understand the stress, anxiety, pain, and confusion you may be experiencing after you have been injured due to another’s negligence in a car accident, slip and fall, dog attack, or any other type of incident involving careless, reckless or intentional wrongful acts. We compassionately represent our clients to ease this stress and anxiety so that our clients are free to concentrate on their physical and emotional recovery. We also endeavor to ease any confusion and help navigate our clients through an often complex and obscure legal system.
Since Montlick and Associates was established in 1984, our Lake City personal injury law firm has successfully represented those who experience injury because of careless, reckless, and intentional harm inflicted by third parties. As legal counsel, we relieve the stress, confusion and often-aggravating burden our clients face when dealing with complicated legal and insurance issues. We educate our clients on the substantive law and legal process and provide reasonably timely answers to our clients’ questions or concerns to demystify the personal injury legal process. Our Lake City personal injury attorneys have built our law firm’s reputation on our commitment to delivering personal service, diligent legal representation and the ethical practice of law.
We have effectively and successfully represented victims in a wide variety of cases, such as car collisions, injuries from defective products, on-the-job injuries, construction accidents, slip and falls, and a wide variety of other Lake City personal injury claims. Specifically, our Lake City personal injury attorneys typically handle the following types of cases:
Lake City Auto Accidents: It is no surprise that there are many diverse causes of motor vehicle accidents. Lake City auto accidents may result from careless, distracted, or impaired drivers, defective vehicles on the road, and unsafe or poorly maintained roadways. For almost three decades, we have successfully represented auto accident victims in all forms of Lake City auto accidents, such as: SUV rollovers, trucking collisions, bus crashes, bicycle accidents, motorcycle collisions, pedestrian accidents, distracted driver crashes, impaired or intoxicated driving collisions, road departure accidents, crashes because of excessive speed, and many other causes. We invite you or anyone you may know who was seriously injured in an auto accident to speak with one of our experienced Lake City auto accident attorneys for a free case evaluation.
Lake City Dog Bites and Animal Attacks: Even though dogs are considered man’s best friend, some people improperly train them or may breed large and aggressive dogs for security purposes against intruders. However, these dogs often lack the ability to differentiate friend from foe. Unfortunately, the most common victims in dog bite incidents that cause permanent disfiguring injury or a fatal mauling are children. Our experienced Lake City dog bite attorneys at Montlick and Associates compassionately and diligently represent innocent victims harmed by dogs and other animals to recover the compensation our clients need to ease the financial difficulties which can impair their physical and emotional recovery.
Lake City Wrongful Death Actions: The loss of life is always traumatic for loved ones left behind, particularly when it results from the negligent or intentional misconduct of another. The death of a spouse, child, or parent is emotionally devastating for family members. Our Lake City wrongful death attorneys understand the difficulty and pain faced by families that lose a loved one in a fatal accident or violent crime and help alleviate the burden of navigating the complex legal system alone. Our experienced Lake City wrongful death lawyers will aggressively pursue the maximum recovery possible for clients in the wake of fatal tragedies suffered at the hands of a negligent, reckless, or intentional third party.
Lake City Defective Products: Under Georgia and federal product liability law, a consumer who is injured as a result of an unsafe or defective product may pursue a claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, and retailer of the sub-par or unsafe product. For a claim to be successful, it must be shown that the product was defectively manufactured and/or designed, or that it lacked adequate warnings or instructions. The plaintiff must also establish that the defect was present when the product left the defendant’s control, and the product was used in a foreseeable manner. This area of law is complex and pursuing product liability cases can involve an enormous investment in resources. When pursuing a claim based on injuries caused by a poorly made or dangerous product, our Lake City defective products liability attorneys have a proven track record for holding companies accountable for the injuries caused by their shoddy products.
Lake City Workers' Compensation Claims: Workers' compensation claims can be fairly complex with a fairly limited scope of recovery. This is because workers' compensation uses a “no fault approach” to providing compensation to injured workers while providing only medical care, partial compensation for wage loss, and recovery for permanent partial or total disability. Workers' compensation claims may cover a wide variety of work-related injuries and occupational illnesses, such as construction accidents, car collisions, defective products and/or machinery, chemical injuries, exposure to toxic chemicals, repetitive motion injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome) and many others. Under certain circumstances, an injured employee may be able to avoid the limited nature of recovery available in workers' compensation claims and file a personal injury claim against a third party.
Lake City Slip and Fall (Premises Liability Actions): All landowners owe some level of legal duty of care to individuals on their property. The degree of care owed is generally reasonable care under the circumstances to avoid foreseeable harm, but there are other considerations. For example, business owners typically owe the highest duty of care to patrons on their property while residential property owners typically owe the lowest duty of care to unknown and unanticipated trespassers. Common Lake City premises liability claims are slip and falls, pool drowning, animal or dog bites, construction site accidents, and many others. Because there are so many types of premises liability claims and so many different factors to consider, you need an experienced legal team to successfully and competently advocate for your rights.
