Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney
Victims of accidents resulting in personal injury suffer severe physical, emotional, and financial difficulties. Each Atlanta personal injury attorney at Montlick and Associates actively fight for victims of intentional or accidental misconduct to ease these burdens. We employ proven legal strategies and effective advocacy in pursuit of the best possible settlement that we can obtain for personal injury victims while seeking to impose consequences on those whose misconduct harms others. For over thirty years, our zealous Atlanta personal injury lawyers have played a vital role in collecting millions upon millions of dollars to facilitate the financial recovery of our clients following car accidents, workplace accidents, animal attacks, falls on wet floors, and more. While our long tenure has prepared us for virtually any personal injury case with which we might be presented, some of our most common personal injury cases include:
Atlanta Motor Vehicle Accidents: It is often difficult to prove who is at-fault in many car accident cases. While there may be cases where one party clearly violated a vehicle safety statute, such as a stoplight violation that causes an intersection collision, insurance companies will typically even dispute liability in these cases by arguing that both parties were at-fault. This strategy, if successful, generally will only mitigate the amount of damages. Most collisions in Atlanta happen because a driver neglects road safety rules, fails to exercise reasonable caution while behind the steering wheel, or decides not to focus his or her attention on the road. The at-fault driver may be drunk, stoned, distracted, or fatigued. Our Atlanta personal injury attorneys have successfully represented injury victims with life-altering injuries due to motorcycle accidents, Atlanta pedestrian accidents, and truck accidents.
Atlanta Dog Bites and Animal Attacks: Animals may attack unsuspecting victims anytime. Animal attacks can be traumatic experiences that cause severe injuries, both physical and emotional. While animal owners may be strictly liable for an animal attack, the victim must generally establish negligence, violation of law, or constructive knowledge of the dog’s past dangerous behavior. Our experienced Atlanta dog attack attorneys frequently interview witnesses, conduct extensive discovery, take depositions and engage in other fact finding procedures to build a firm foundation for our clients’ Atlanta dog bite claims.
Atlanta Wrongful Death Action: The Georgia Wrongful Death Statute provides a mechanism to compensate a fatality victim’s estate and the victim’s family for the losses suffered by both the decedent and his or her family as a direct consequence of a fatal accident or intentional wrongful conduct. If someone close to you has died because of the negligent act of another, you are likely to have many questions and concerns at an emotionally trying time. Our experienced Atlanta wrongful death attorneys at Montlick and Associates offer a free consultation so that we can assess your claim and explain such issues as who may bring a wrongful death claim and what specific compensation is available for losses suffered by the estate and close family members.
Atlanta Premise Liability Accidents: Injuries that occur to victims because of unsafe conditions on another person’s property is what the law calls a “premises liability claim.” These types of personal injury claims encompass many types of cases, such as slips and falls, violent crimes caused by inadequate security, construction accidents, falls from staircases or balconies in disrepair, spa drain entrapment accidents, and many others. When injuries occur on the premises of another, the owner generally has some degree of legal duty to keep his property safe and warn visitors of non-obvious hazards. The precise nature of this duty depends on many factors so a careful factual analysis is usually appropriate in such cases. Other persons who may be held liable in a premises liability claim include the manager of the property, contractors, and tenants. Given the intensive nature of premises liability claims, our dedicated Atlanta premises liability attorneys invite you to contact us for a free case analysis.
Atlanta Defective Products Claim: Products sold to consumers must be safe for the intended use, which also includes foreseeable misuse. If the product causes personal injury, the injured individual may have legal recourse against the company that sold, designed, or manufactured the product. Pharmaceutical companies, automakers, and medical product companies make billions of dollars on their products. A recall or consumer warning may not be provided or delayed to avoid the cost of putting consumers on notice of potential safety hazards. Businesses that manufacture and distribute defective products vigorously defend these cases because they can open the floodgates for similar claims. Large corporations are prepared to spend substantial resources defending these cases so you should put the experienced Atlanta defective products attorneys of Montlick and Associates on your side.
Atlanta Workers' Compensation Claims: Injured workers or those that suffer an occupational illness should contact a dedicated Atlanta workers' compensation attorney for assistance in identifying all potential sources of monetary recovery and benefits when an employee is incapacitated by a work-related illness or injury. When an employee is injured at work, the worker may be faced with painful medical procedures, the burden of lost income, and intense emotional turmoil. At Montlick and Associates, our Atlanta workers' compensation lawyers can assess both your rights to pursue a personal injury claim against a party other than your employer and a claim against your employer’s workers' compensation insurance.
