Doraville Personal Injury Attorneys
The emotional, financial and physical impact of a severe accident that causes debilitating and painful injuries or the tragic loss of a family member can be devastating. There are millions of people each year who are sent to emergency rooms with severe injuries because of careless drivers, unsafe construction projects, poorly maintained commercial property, medical errors and other unsafe behavior. While it is always frustrating to suffer injuries, the anxiety resulting from being involved in an incident that causes you to suffer injury may be exponentially worse when the cause of your injury is negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of a third party. At Montlick and Associates, we are committed to providing aggressive legal representation to those who suffer injury or the wrongful death of a loved one caused by the unsafe actions of others.
Because our Doraville personal injury attorneys have been advocating for injury victims in Doraville and throughout Georgia since 1984, we have the resources, network of experts and proven results to put insurance companies on notice that we are prepared to zealously seek the full measure of damages that our clients are entitled to receive. The insurance industry is a billion dollar industry because it works feverously to delay, deny and underpay claims. Because of the massive volume of insurance claims that insurance companies handle, an accident victim should avoid confronting the virtually unlimited resources and experience of an insurance provider without an experienced Doraville personal injury attorney. Our team of Doraville personal injury lawyers represents clients in a wide range of personal injury cases including:
Doraville Auto Accident Cases: While motor vehicles of all types may be involved in serious collisions, these collisions are typically the result of drivers that fail to exercise reasonable safe driving practices. Although approximately 30,000 people die each year in motor vehicle accidents, most of these accidents could be prevented if drivers abided by Georgia traffic laws and engaged in safe driving practices. The preventable nature of motor vehicle accidents is revealed by some of the most prevalent causes of these accidents including speeding, intoxicated driving, distracted driving, running traffic lights or stop signs and similar negligent driving practices. Our Doraville auto accident attorneys are committed to seeking full financial recovery for victims of collisions involving all types of vehicles, such as trucking (tractor-trailer) accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and more.
Doraville Dog Bite Cases (Dog Attacks/Dog Maulings): Dog bites can result in serious injuries causing permanent disfigurement and permanent disability. While there are multiple legal theories for imposing liability on dog owners for the injuries caused by their dogs, a dog owner generally has a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent injury to others. The duty imposed on dog owners to protect others from dog attacks is even more exacting if the dog owner has reason to know that the dog has vicious tendencies. The dog owner may even face strict liability for a dog attack if the dog owner fails to comply with local ordinances regarding confining dogs on leashes and behind fence enclosures. If you or someone you love suffers serious injury in a Doraville dog attack, our experienced Doraville dog bite lawyers can examine the facts and circumstances of your dog bite to assess your rights and remedies.
Doraville Wrongful Death Cases: There are many tragic cases where families lose someone they love prematurely because of an intentional, reckless or negligent party. From companies that produce defective motor vehicles to medical professionals that fail to exercise the diligence of doctors with similar experience in the area, there are many forms of behavior that may result in preventable deaths. At Montlick and Associates, our experienced wrongful death attorneys understand the hardships imposed on families when a loved one dies in a tragic accident or violent crime. We understand that we cannot give a family back the love, companionship and guidance of a loved one, but we can ease the financial burden that accompanies such a loss.
Doraville Workers' Compensation Cases: While the Georgia workers' compensation system is intended to provide a system for compensating employees for work-related injuries without the need to establish negligence by one’s employer, it is a mixed blessing. While workers' compensation benefits include medical care, partial income replacement and compensation for permanent disability, it does not provide compensation for many forms of injury that are common in personal injury cases. Because of these limitations of the workers' compensation system in Georgia, our experienced team also explores the feasibility of a legal claim against a responsible third party to supplement workers' compensation benefits.
Doraville Slip and Fall Cases: Although slip and fall accidents often cause severe injuries including traumatic brain injuries, insurance companies are particularly aggressive about contesting these cases. Insurance companies often contend that any hazard that caused a slip and fall injury was “open and obvious” so that the accident was the fault of the injury victim. Many slip and fall cases also are defended by insurance companies by claiming that the injury victim is misrepresenting or lying about the severity of one’s injuries. Our experienced Doraville slip and fall attorneys have the experience to successfully navigate around such defense strategies so that we can seek the compensation our clients need. Slip and falls and other accidents that occur because of hazards on the property of others are covered by premises liability law. Our Doraville premises liability law firm represents clients in the full range of premises liability cases, such as the following: Construction site accidents, pools and spa accidents, animal attacks, intentional assaults caused by negligent security and more.
Doraville Product Liability Claims: When consumers purchase goods ranging from automobiles with defective tires to children’s toys tainted with lead paint, there are often hidden dangers in products that can cause life-altering injuries. Because the corporations that make products are uniquely situated to test their products for defects and prevent injury, any entity involved in the production process or distribution of products may be liable for product defects. Many hazardous products possess defects that are difficult to identify, such as drugs with side effects. Product liability law provides a means to hold companies accountable that fail to take adequate measures to confirm that their products are safe before they are made available to consumers. Our dedicated Doraville product liability attorneys at Montlick and Associates have the experience and expertise that comes from taking on large corporations that fail to make their products safe for consumers.
