Atlanta Injury Attorney
Because most people that are involved in a personal injury case may never have had contact with the legal system, they often have little idea what to expect or how to protect their personal injury claim. Our experienced Atlanta injury attorney understand the confusion and anxiety that typically accompanies an accident that results in serious injury. Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates also know that many personal injury claims are compromised because accident victims are not sure what to do in the wake of an accident to preserve their personal injury claim. Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers have been representing those injured by the negligent, reckless, and intentional actions of others since our law firm was founded in 1984.
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, trip and fall incident, accident involving heavy machinery at a construction site, or in any other incident caused by the careless or intentional misconduct of a third-party, you should seek immediate medical attention. Critical evidence can disappear and witness memories may fade so you should seek immediate legal advice from an Atlanta injury attorney to ascertain your rights and potential remedies. While our Atlanta personal injury law firm handles the full spectrum of injury cases, we have provided some common examples of the types of Atlanta construction accidents that we handle below.
Atlanta Construction Accidents: Our Atlanta construction accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates recognize the many workplace hazards that face those who work in the construction trades. Hundreds of thousands of those employed in the construction industry are injured or die annually in construction accidents. Some of the hazards that may cause injury, which our experienced Atlanta construction accident lawyers are qualified to handle includle:
- Cranes, forklifts, excavators, and other heavy machinery
- Open floors, scaffoldings, and ladders that lead to dangerous falls
- Motor vehicles driven by careless or inattentive drivers
- Exposure to hazardous substances like asbestos, explosive, or toxic materials
Atlanta Auto Accidents: When you are involved in an auto accident in Atlanta, you may be overcome with a wide range of emotions including pain, stress, fear and even anger. While this mix of emotions is both understandable and predictable, it can impair your ability to take appropriate action to preserve your John's Creek auto accident claim. Our experienced Atlanta auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been providing legal representation to Atlanta car accident victims so they can rebuild their lives since our firm was founded almost three decades ago. If you or someone you love is injured or a loved one dies in a Atlanta auto accident, we invite you to speak with one of our knowledgeable car accident attorneys said we can evaluate your claim and advise you regarding your legal options.
Atlanta Motorcycle Accidents: While the popularity of motorcycles has increased dramatically, the handling limitations and lack of structural protection of motorcycles has prevented motorcycle safety developments from keeping pace with their increased use. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, you are far more likely to be involved in a serious collision and to suffer permanent injury. Many Atlanta motorcycle accidents are the product of inattentive or inconsiderate drivers of passenger vehicles that fail to treat motorcyclist with the same courtesy as drivers of other vehicles. We encourage you to contact a dedicated Atlanta motorcycle accident attorney at Montlick and Associates who may be able to handle communications of the other driver's insurance company and diligently pursue your best interest.
Atlanta Trip and Fall Claims: Many people injured in trip and fall accidents in Atlanta presume that their injuries are only minor. This assumption is fostered by media depictions of slip and fall accident victims as malingerers who exaggerate their injuries. Despite such depictions, the reality is that many Atlanta trip and fall victims suffer permanent injuries that may impact your family relationships, employment, and ability to fully enjoy life. At Montlick and Associates, our Atlanta trip and fall attorneys are committed to fighting such misconceptions so that we can obtain the compensation our clients need to rebuild their lives.
Atlanta on the Job Injuries: Atlanta employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe work environment or their employees. Sometimes employers under pressure to cut costs and increase revenue elect to cut corners rather than provide the full measure of safety precautions to prevent injury to employees. The workers' compensation system generally provides a remedy for employees who suffer on-the-job injuries without requiring that the employee establish fault on behalf of the employer. This means that if you are injured at your place of work or while performing a job related function for the benefit of your employer, you generally can seek workers' compensation benefits. While workers' compensation benefits may include medical care, lost wages, and compensation for permanent disability, the measure of recovery is typically far less than what is available pursuant to a personal injury claim. Our Atlanta workers' compensation attorneys invite you to contact us so we can evaluate your workers' compensation claim or even your potential personal injury claim against a third-party.
Atlanta Defective Product Claims: Most consumers who leave the store excited about their new purchase never contemplated the possibility that the product that they just bought may cause serious injury. However, there are people throughout the country every year who suffer significant injuries caused by products that are poorly designed, defectively manufactured, improperly tested, and inadequately labeled. If you are injured by a defective product, you may have a legal right to pursue a product liability claim against anyone in the production or distribution chain for the product. Our Atlanta product liability lawyers have been successfully taking on large corporations that produce unsafe products since we were founded in 1984.
Atlanta Pedestrian Accidents: There are many motor vehicle accidents throughout the country with over 100,000 per year involving a pedestrian. Tragically, the vulnerability of a pedestrian makes this term "minor pedestrian accident" a contradiction in terms. Most pedestrian accident victims suffer some form of severe injury including broken bones, damage to the spinal cord, brain damage and other severe forms of injury. While most pedestrian accidents in Atlanta are the product of careless or distracted drivers, sometimes the failure of the city or other governmental body to provide appropriate safeguards to protect pedestrians can also cause a serious Atlanta pedestrian accident. When you or someone you love suffers the serious type of injury that is typical of a pedestrian accident, our experienced Atlanta pedestrian accident attorneys may be able to seek financial recovery to protect you or your loved one's quality of life.
Atlanta Tractor-Trailer Accidents (Trucking Accidents): If you are injured in a Atlanta trucking accident, you need a law firm with the specialized knowledge required to confidently handle trucking accident litigation or settlements. Whether you are injured in a jackknife accident, under-ride carriage accident, tractor-trailer overload accident or any other form of trucking accident, the experienced Atlanta tractor-trailer accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates have the experience and knowledge that comes from representing clients in trucking accidents in Atlanta for almost three decades. Our trucking accident lawyers are familiar with the special laws and regulations that govern trucking industry practices as well as the tactics used by trucking companies to avoid liability.
Atlanta Dog Attacks: The most common victims of vicious dog attacks are young children. When a small child is attacked or mauled by a dog with violent tendencies, the dog attack can leave significant physical scars and even deeper emotional scars. Atlanta dog owners generally have a legal duty to restrain their dog and prevent injury to others. The scope of this duty depends on a wide range of factors so it is important to speak to one of our knowledgeable Atlanta dog attack attorneys at Montlick and Associates so that we can determine your options and discuss potential compensation.
Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Claims: One of the most difficult tasks that many people face is placing an elderly loved one in the care of a nursing home facility. The media in recent years has reported on many horrific cases of abuse and neglect of the elderly in nursing homes throughout the country. If someone you love has been the victim of physical assault, sexual exploitation, financial abuse or chronic neglect, you may be able to fight back and protect your loved one by pursuing a Atlanta nursing home abuse and neglect case. Our Atlanta nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys are committed to protecting vulnerable seniors from mistreatment by those who are hired to provide for their care.
Atlanta Wrongful Death Claims: If you have lost someone you love to a drunk driver, distracted driver, defective product, or any other form of indifferent or unreasonably careless behavior, our experienced John's Creek wrongful death attorneys recognize that there is no amount of financial compensation that we can give you back what you have lost. Although we are unable to give you back the love and companionship of your lost family member, we can help ease the financial hardships that can be caused by a loss of household income. Our experienced John's Creek wrongful death attorneys may be able to seek damages suffered by your deceased loved one as well as your own personal emotional and financial losses.
