Hall County Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Of the many types of negligence that can lead to a personal injury lawsuit, some of the most difficult cases often result from a doctor’s medical malpractice. Legislation has been successfully implemented at the behest of the American Medical Association (AMA) that makes it difficult and expensive to pursue negligence claims against physicians. As a result, there are more barriers to liability when pursuing a case involving medical errors and omissions. Even though doctors are experts with years of specialized training and education, pursuit of a legal claim against these trained professionals usually is far more difficult than pursuing a claim against an inexperienced teen driver.

Patients who are victims of medical care that falls below the appropriate professional standard of care may suffer severe pain, emotional trauma and even wrongful death. The Hall County medical malpractice firm of Montlick and Associates understands these hardships so we investigate potential medical malpractice claims while working closely with medical specialists to analyze medical records, identify sub-standard medical treatment and establish a causal relationship between the medical error or omission and the harm suffered by the patient.

Medical malpractice cases are the most fiercely defended cases. This makes them among the most expensive and complicated personal injury claims to litigate. However, since Georgia’s highest court struck down the law capping non-economic damages in Georgia in 2010, it has become easier for patients injured due to medical malpractice to obtain full compensation for their injuries.

The number of law firms with the skill and expertise to handle medical malpractice claims based on physician error is shrinking. A significant number of victims of medical mistakes struggle to find someone to take their case because so many personal injury law firms avoid medical malpractice cases due to tort reform, increasing costs and other obstacles imposed by advocates of tort reform. Our Hall County medical malpractice lawyers may seek an injured patient’s lost earnings, compensation for pain and emotional distress, future disability, medical expenses for revisionary surgery and other forms of damages.

When medical malpractice is alleged by a patient against a doctor, the testimony of a medical professional is required to establish the appropriate professional standard of care and the breach of that standard. In Georgia, the appropriate standard of care for a doctor is that of a reasonable doctor in the same geographic vicinity in the same medical discipline. There are a variety of medical errors or omissions that may constitute medical malpractice by a doctor including:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Mistakes in the type or dosage of prescribed medication
  • Errors made by emergency room doctors
  • Birth injuries
  • Failure to schedule prompt testing or treatment
  • Surgical mistakes

Victims of medical malpractice may know something is wrong but be unable to pinpoint the precise nature of their physical problem or may not know that they are the victims of substandard medical care. Harvard University conducted a study that found that almost a hundred thousand people per year are victims of medical malpractice but do not realize it. Even though these victims suffer serious injuries, they do not bring a medical malpractice lawsuit because of their lack of knowledge that they have been harmed by a medical professional.

Our Hall County medical malpractice law firm has been handling sophisticated medical malpractice cases, including those against primary care physicians, surgeons, oncologists, anesthesiologists, radiologists, internists, nurses and other medical professionals for almost three decades. Montlick and Associates provides tenacious negotiation and effective litigation when seeking compensation and justice for patients who are injured or suffer wrongful death as a result of substandard medical care. Medical malpractice can cause devastating harm and injury to victims, and we are dedicated to handling the legal and insurance issues so our clients can devote their energy to their recovery.

Hall County Personal Injury Attorneys

Personal injury claims arise out of a wide range of unsafe forms of conduct, including unintentional accidents and intentional wrongful acts. Injury claims are based on tort law, which provides the basis for imposing liability in civil settlements and litigation. There are many types of misconduct that may form the basis for a personal injury lawsuit, such as drunken driving collisions, motorcycle accidents, tractor-trailer crashes, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace accidents and many other injury claims.

Our Hall County personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been providing a voice to those who suffer serious injury and wrongful death caused by reckless drivers, vicious dogs, fatigued truck drivers, careless operators of heavy equipment on construction sites and other forms of unsafe conduct since our law firm was established in 1984. During our time serving Hall County and the surrounding areas of Georgia, we have developed relationships with leading experts and a reputation for results with insurance carriers. We may be able to represent you or your loved one if you have suffered serious injury or the loss of a family member in a wide range of situations including:

Hall County Car Accidents: Despite significant advancements in vehicle safety and more aggressive laws aimed at DUI, speeding drivers, distracted drivers and other unsafe driving practices, there are over 342,000 car accidents annually in Georgia. Other negligent driving practices that cause Hall County auto accidents include the following: improper speed, failure to yield, disregard of traffic signs or signals, unsafe lane changes, failure to adjust driving to weather conditions and tailgating. Depending on the facts and seriousness of the case, we may use accident reconstruction experts to identify potential defendants and build compelling theories of liability.

Hall County Semi-Truck Accidents: Tractor-trailer collisions almost invariably cause significant injuries and wrongful deaths. Because of the dangers posed by these behemoths, the trucking industry is subject to a complex myriad of regulations. Unfortunately, the lure of increased revenue often motivates truck drivers and trucking companies to disregard these vital safety regulations. Truck drivers operate semi-trucks that can weigh 25 times more than a passenger car. Trucking accident claims involve complex factual and legal issues that make them particularly challenging. Almost three decades of representing trucking accident victims has armed our team of Hall County trucking accident lawyers with a firm understanding of unique semi-truck evidentiary issues like distortion of driver log books and deletion of data from black box recorders.

Hall County Motorcycle Accidents: The frequency of serious traumatic brain injuries and motorcycle accident fatalities has significantly increased as many states have started repealing or limiting their mandatory helmet laws. A motorcyclist faces significant disadvantages when confronted with a negligent driver of a passenger vehicle including a vehicle that provides less stability and essentially no protection to the rider. We understand that a motorcycle collision can result in permanent physical disability and serious impairment of cognitive functioning. We work diligently to obtain the compensation motorcycle accident victims need when suffering these types of severe injuries.

Other Motor Vehicle Accidents: Whether you are traveling on a bicycle, bus or on foot, any collision with a motor vehicle may permanently change your life in fundamental ways. Serious accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists may mean chronic pain, permanent disability from employment and disruption of your family relationships. While you are not required to retain a personal injury attorney if you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, the negligent driver’s insurance company will have attorneys and experts on their side so legal representation provided by an experienced Hall County motor vehicle accident lawyer provides the best opportunity to maximize the value of your recovery.

Hall County Canine Attacks: Many people assume that dog bites result in minor injuries that rarely require medical attention. In reality, there are over a thousand people a day across the country that are forced to visit emergency rooms because of dog bites or dog attacks. If you suffer the physical injury and emotional trauma of a dog attack, our Hall County dog bite lawyers are committed to obtaining the monetary recovery you need for psychological counseling, medical care, reconstructive surgery and therapy for emotional injuries.

Hall County Premises Liability: Many times when people suffer injuries on the property of others, this may give rise to a claim for damages but not necessarily. Georgia premises liability law provides the parameters for holding property owners accountable for injuries to those that venture onto public, residential and commercial property. While a property owner generally has a duty of reasonable care toward those who come on their property, there is a complex mix of factors that may impact the precise scope of this legal duty. Some of the premise liability claims we handle include failure to provide adequate security, negligence in clearing slippery substances from walkways, construction site accidents, animal attacks and more. We provide a confidential free consultation so that we can analyze the specific facts of your case to determine whether you have a valid premises liability claim.

Hall County Workers’ Compensation (construction accidents – industrial accidents): When you are injured during the course of your employment, you may have access to dual remedies. Compensation may be available in the form of medical care, lost income and permanent disability from your employer’s workers' compensation insurance. If a sub-contractor, design company, contractor, property owner or other business entity or individual other than your employer was at least partially to blame for your injuries, you may also pursue a civil lawsuit for personal injury where you may receive a larger recovery including compensation for your pain and suffering, diminished quality of life and other forms of damages.

Hall County Wrongful Death: Some people shy away from the prospect of pursuing a civil action for wrongful death when a loved one dies because of the misconduct of an individual, medical malpractice, business or public entity. Although confronting insurance companies and navigating legal procedural requirements may seem daunting when coping with intense emotions, the financial difficulty of losing a family wage earner and paying medical or funeral costs is a reality that cannot be ignored. At Montlick and Associates, we take care of negotiating with insurance companies so that our clients can focus on their emotional recovery.

Hall County Defective Products: Because businesses that market products to the public frequently generate enormous profits, product liability law shifts the cost of serious injury resulting from unsafe or poorly made products to the companies that expose consumers to the risk of injury. Businesses are held to a high standard for providing products that will not cause injury to purchasers when used appropriately, but they may also have significant resources to fight legal claims for financial compensation. Whether you are injured by a defective airbag or a pharmaceutical that was not properly tested, our experienced Hall County defective product lawyers have helped many people injured by defective goods.

Know your legal rights! If you or a loved one has been the victim of a personal injury, we invite you to call us today. Whether negligent, reckless or intentional conduct caused your injury, you may have a legal claim for monetary recovery. At Montlick and Associates, our dedicated and compassionate Hall County personal injury attorneys are here to assist you. Call us now for your FREE CONSULTATION. Our committed and professional legal team is here to help and may pay you a visit if necessary. Call us anytime at 1-800-LAW-NEED (1-800-529-6333) for your FREE CONSULTATION.

Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Claims – Hall County Georgia Construction Accident Attorneys

Construction work is physically demanding labor that occurs in an environment inundated with potential hazards. Historically, the construction trades are one of the most dangerous of all sectors of the economy both in terms of the percentage of the labor force that suffers injury as well as the number of on-the-job fatalities. Construction accidents that result in serious injury may involve many diverse hazards including trenches without proper shoring, defective or improperly operated heavy machinery, fire and explosion hazards, unfinished roofs or improperly constructed scaffoldings and other unsafe conditions on construction projects.

If you are injured in a construction accident, our Hall County construction accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates will explore the possibility of dual claims to maximize your financial recovery. Under Georgia law, a construction worker's sole remedies against his or her employer for injuries or occupational illnesses suffered on a construction project are those provided by the workers' compensation system. These benefits may include partial replacement of lost income, long-term partial or full disability benefits and medical care at no cost. With rare exceptions, workers injured while engaged in job-related functions will be entitled to workers' compensation benefits even if the worker's own negligence contributed to the accident.

While workers' compensation benefits may provide vital financial compensation to an injured construction worker, there are many types of compensation like diminished enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional distress, impaired services and/or companionship of a spouse and punitive damages that are not available outside the civil court system. Because the range of damages and amount of recovery normally is far more extensive in a personal injury claim, our experienced team of Hall County construction accident attorneys explore the potential role third parties play in causing an accident on a construction site. It is not uncommon for us to pursue both a personal injury claim and workers' compensation benefits for an injured construction worker.

Our Hall County construction injury law firm has the expertise and experience to provide reliable legal counsel and effective representation to those injured by a wide range of construction site hazards including:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falls on construction sites
  • Crane accidents
  • Unsafe equipment accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Gas explosions
  • Nail gun injuries
  • Trench collapses
  • Explosions and fires
  • Structure failure
  • Electrocution accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents

Hall County construction accident claims are complicated by a number of factors. Construction job sites are constantly in flux which can mean that critical evidence is altered or destroyed. The business relationships of companies on a construction site are often complex with contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, equipment suppliers, project owners and more. We understand the importance if prompt investigation to preserve evidence and to identify all potential viable defendants.

If you are involved in an accident on a construction site, you may suffer a wide range of injuries including:

  • Severe burns
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Head injuries including traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal disc and spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Injury to vital organs
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one is injured or a loved one dies because of an accident on a construction site, you may be entitled to financial compensation in a civil lawsuit and/or workers' compensation claim. We invite you to contact our Roswell construction accident attorneys at Montlick & Associates for your free consultation. Our experienced Hall County construction accident attorneys are standing by to assist you. Our attorneys are here to help and may be able to visit you.
