College Park Personal Injury Attorneys
An unexpected accident that results in severe injury can cause extreme anxiety and the disruption of one’s life. The emotional challenges that one faces when suffering injury caused by the unsafe or intentional misconduct of a third party is compounded by the pain and disability that may be caused by the accident. When you are in the emergency room obtaining treatment or participating in rehabilitation, financial issues may not be your primary concern. However, as household expenses and medical bills mount while you are recovering, these financial hardships may begin to escalate the stress and anxiety with which you are trying to cope.
Our experienced and proven College Park personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been representing personal injury victims in many types of personal injury cases since our law firm was established in 1984. We understand that the mental anguish and stress that affects accident victims may make it difficult to respond to inquiries from insurance company adjusters and to navigate legal procedures and timelines. Our caring and diligent team of College Park personal injury attorneys handles these pragmatic issues for our clients so that our clients can devote all of their energy and efforts toward their recovery. We have handled a vast array of personal injury cases during our nearly three decades representing personal injury victims, including auto accident claims, slip and fall claims, defective product claims, construction accidents and a broad spectrum of other personal injury cases. We invite you to contact us to discuss how we can be of assistance if you have any type of College Park personal injury claim, such as the following:
College Park Car Crashes (Motor Vehicle Accident Claims): Motor vehicle accidents involving all types of vehicles are the most common type of personal injury case. Car accident claims also frequently result in permanent injury or wrongful death. The notion that an auto collision is actually an “accident” is somewhat misleading. Most motor vehicle accidents, such as motorcycle accidents, passenger car collisions, semi-truck crashes (trucking accidents), pedestrian accidents and other collisions would never occur if drivers did not elect to drive carelessly or recklessly. Speeding, running stop signs, drunk driving and distracted driving involves a decision to engage in conduct that puts others in danger. Our College Park auto accident attorneys are committed to representing victims of such collisions to recover and rebuild their lives.
College Dog Maulings and Bites: Dog bites are one of the most common forms of personal injury cases because so many dog owners do not exercise appropriate care to protect others from their dog. Many dogs that end up biting or attacking an innocent child or other victim have displayed a tendency to be aggressive in the past. A homeowner that has reason to know that his or her dog is capable of being vicious because of past behavior may be liable for failure to prevent the dog from biting or attacking an injury victim. Liability for dogs that attack or bite others may also be based on the violation of laws that govern proper restraint or confinement of a dog behind a fence or on a dog leash. If you or someone close to you suffers a dog bite, mauling or other injury caused by an aggressive dog, our experienced College Park dog bite lawyers at Montlick and Associates provide compassionate but aggressive legal representation to dog attack victims.
College Park Wrongful Death: Our College Park wrongful death attorneys recognize that no amount of monetary recovery can truly compensate a family for the needless loss of a loved one. While monetary compensation is not the first concern for most families coping with the death of a loved one caused by the inattentive, careless or criminal conduct of a third party, the loss of a family breadwinner and medical expenses mean that financial challenges cannot be ignored. Georgia’s wrongful death statute provides that a party whose misconduct causes the death of another may be liable to pay financial compensation both for fiscal losses to the estate of the party who dies and the decedent’s family. Our College Park wrongful death attorneys represent wrongful death victims and their families with empathy, compassion and diligence.
College Park Workers' Compensation (Construction Accidents – Industrial Accidents): When employees work hard and fulfill their obligations to an employer, they have a right to expect that they will be compensated if they are injured during the scope of their employment. Most employers in Georgia will have workers' compensation insurance that will provide medical treatment, partial income replacement and in some cases compensation for permanent disability. There is no obligation to prove negligence by your employer because the workers' comp system is a no-fault basis for compensation. If you are able to prove fault by an entity other than your employer, you may also be able to supplement your workers' compensation benefits with a personal injury claim. Whether you are injured by exposure to asbestos, a fall from a scaffolding on a construction site or defective machinery in an industrial plant, our experienced College Park workers' compensation attorneys may be able to represent you in both a workers' compensation and personal injury claim.
College Park Premises Liability: When a person is injured on the premises of another, the area of law that provides a basis for imposing liability is Georgia premises liability law. Premises liability law defines the obligation of a commercial, residential or public property owner to maintain property free from hazards that cause injuries to those who come on the property. The obligation varies depending on the type of property owner, character of the hazard, rationale for coming on the property and other factors. Generally, commercial property owners that invite consumers to conduct business on their property, such as owners of grocery stores, department stores, restaurants, bars and other businesses open to the public, have an obligation to make their premises safe from hazards. Because the corrective measures and duty to warn can vary substantially based on the specific facts of a premises liability case, our experienced College Park premises liability attorneys invite you to contact us if you have been injured by any of the following hazards: improperly fenced swimming pool, poorly maintained stairway, uneven pavement or walkway, lack of security, spa with a missing drain cover or other manmade hazard.
College Park Defective Products: When companies market products to consumers, they have a legal obligation to conduct adequate product testing and implement quality control measures to prevent exposing consumers to dangerous or defective products. Because the ability to make products safe and identify potential hazards before consumers are injured rests exclusively with the companies in the manufacturing and distribution chain of a product, they may be liable for injuries caused by their products. Depending on the case, the product manufacturer may even be compelled to compensate an injury victim based on strict liability if a defect was present when the product left the manufacturer’s control. If you or someone you love has experienced a significant injury caused by a defective product, we invite you to contact us because we have been taking on large corporations and their insurance companies for decades.
