Forsyth County Auto Accidents: Auto accidents are a daily event that cost the lives of thousands of people and cause severe injuries to many more. When car accidents in Forsyth County and throughout Georgia are caused by negligent conduct – driving practices that are unreasonably careless or reckless – the law provides remedies in the form of financial recovery. We may be able to help family members of those who die in fatal auto accidents or vehicle occupants that suffer injury recover pecuniary losses like lost wages and medical bills as well as compensation for pain and suffering, diminished enjoyment of life experiences and other forms of loss. We handle all types of injury claims that arise out of Forsyth County car accidents including those involving drivers that are distracted, speeding, driving drunk, text messaging or otherwise driving dangerously.
Forsyth County Semi-Truck Collision Claims: Tractor-trailer traffic continues to increase so collisions involving big-rigs or 18-wheelers are more prevalent. Our Forsyth trucking accident law firm has been representing those involved in all types of collisions involving commercial trucks since 1984, including tankers, box cars, semi-trucks, and other large commercial vehicles. Our Forsyth semi-truck accident lawyers understand the unique regulatory structure that governs commercial carriers and the common forms of negligent operation of a commercial truck that cause most trucking accidents.
Forsyth County Motorcycle Crash Injuries: Although sometimes inexperience and the heightened vulnerability of a motorcyclist can contribute to a motorcycle accident in Forsyth, a driver who is impaired by alcohol or texting may change lanes and cut you off so that there is insufficient time to safely brake without laying your bike down. While the hazardous driving practices like violating the speed limit, tailgating, talking on mobile phone and other similar driving practices threaten occupants of all vehicles, the scope of the risk is higher for motorcyclists because riders have less control of their vehicle and almost no protection from injury. One common scenario where motorcyclists suffer severe injury involves drivers making left-hand turns directly into the path a motorcycle is traveling. The devastating types of injuries that result when only a helmet and jacket separate you from the asphalt necessitate the proven and experienced representation of a Forsyth motorcycle accident attorney at Montlick and Associates.
Forsyth County Canine Attacks (Dog Bites): Injuries caused by pets can cause serious injury to you, your child or other members of your household. While the most common form of animal attack is a dog bite, there are many types of injuries that may be caused by an animal owner that does not properly control their animal, including equestrian accidents, dangerous reptiles, snake bites and canine knock-down incidents. Although not every case of injury caused by an animal, like a dog mauling, can be the basis for a personal injury claim, many times you can pursue such a claim even if the animal has never harmed anyone before.
Forsyth County Premises Liability: There are many types of hazards on the premises of others that may cause injuries or wrongful death to visitors including broken steps, poor security lighting, detached handrails, ignored reports of safety or maintenance issues and more. When the owner of commercial or public property fails to correct hazardous conditions or provide adequate security, a person on the property that suffers serious injury may have a civil claim for damages. Those who own businesses or manage apartment buildings generally have a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to make the premises safe for residents and customers. Our experienced Forsyth County premises liability lawyers at Montlick and Associates are committed to holding property owners accountable when they fail to warn or repair dangerous conditions that cause a serious injury or fatality.
Forsyth County Workers’ Compensation (construction accidents – industrial accidents): Whether you work in a manufacturing plant, the construction trades or an office setting, you may be exposed to the risk of various work-related injuries. Whether you suffer an injury in a sudden accident, develop a serious occupational illness because of exposure to a toxic substance or experience repetitive motion injuries, you may be unable to work on a temporary or permanent basis. Whether you fall from a poorly constructed scaffolding on a construction site or suffer injury when a piece of industrial equipment malfunctions, you may have the ability to seek both workers’ compensation benefits from your employer as well as damages in a personal injury claim against a third party. The scope of compensation available and the factual and legal showing required for each type of claim differs significantly. The Forsyth County workers’ compensation lawyers at Montlick and Associates understand the tactics used by insurance companies to minimize or prevent recovery in both types of claims. We take care to pursue the fullest possible workers’ compensation benefits and personal injury recovery for our clients.
Forsyth County Wrongful Death Actions: The experienced Forsyth wrongful death lawyers at Montlick and Associates understand the enormous emotional impact of suddenly losing a loved one to negligent or criminal wrongdoing. While you are grappling with your grief, the insurance company for the wrongdoing party may be investigating the accident claim and constructing legal defense strategies to your claim. The financial compensation that may be recovered in a wrongful death civil action can mean financial security for a surviving spouse or child.
Forsyth County Product Liability Claims: Large corporations focus on placing new products on the market and initiating sales, but they frequently ignore or forget the importance of ensuring that products are not dangerous to customers. From SUVs prone to rollover accidents to children’s products that cause choking accidents, there are a wide range of consumer products that may cause serious injuries to customers. Our Forsyth defective product attorneys carefully investigate accidents caused by dangerous or malfunctioning products to identify design, manufacturing or labeling defects.
