Gainesville Dog Bites: When dog owners fail to be diligent in securing their dog behind a fence or on a leash, dogs can cause serious injuries, including biting those who pass by, forcing bicyclists to fall over, or causing pedestrians or cyclists to flee into traffic. Liability may be imposed on the owner of a dog that the owner knows or should know has exhibited prior aggressive tendencies. Liability may also be based on other legal theories, such as failure to take reasonable care to prevent foreseeable injury or violation of a local leash ordinance.
Gainesville Premises Liability: Premise liability law generally provides that property owners must conduct reasonable inspections of their property and eradicate unsafe conditions that may cause injury to others. However, owners of commercial or public property generally have more extensive obligations to make their premises safe than residential owners. When the purpose of being on the property of another is mutually beneficial for both parties, such as to engage in a commercial transaction, the property owner is usually held to a high standard of making the premises safe. The scope of the obligation of a premise owner to prevent visitors from injury varies greatly so it is important to consult one of our experienced premise liability attorneys at Montlick and Associates. Some of the types of premise liability claims we handle include slip and fall accidents, dog bite cases, negligent security cases, construction site accidents, and more.
Gainesville Trucking Accidents: Tractor-trailers are involved in a disproportionately high number of collisions given the ratio of big-rigs to other vehicles on the roadways in Gainesville and throughout the state. Big-rigs have a number of disadvantages, such as their size and weight makes them less responsive to sudden braking or steering adjustments. These large motor vehicles also have enormous blind spots called “no zones.” Commercial trucks not only have a higher probability of being involved in a collision but typically also are involved in more serious collisions. Our experienced Gainesville tractor-trailer accident lawyers have extensive knowledge of the special regulations, industry practices, and litigation strategies relevant to trucking cases.

Gainesville Product Liability Attorneys: Every year thousands of people are injured because corporations fail to invest adequately in safety features and product testing. No one expects to be injured when they purchase a product. When a defective or dangerous product does cause injury to unsuspecting customers, product liability law provides for shifting the cost of injury and loss to the companies that manufacture, distribute or market the product. Our experienced Gainesville product liability attorneys have the knowledge and experience to take on large companies with deep pockets that injure consumers with their unsafe products.
