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.
