Loganville Product Liability Attorneys

If you are injured by a product that is based on an unsafe design or that has been manufactured with substandard materials, you may have a right to file a legal claim based on Georgia product liability law. If the product is not safe or does not carry proper warnings and instructions to prevent innocent consumers from being injured, anyone in the production-distribution network may be financially responsible for injuries or wrongful death caused by the faulty product. Thousands of consumers are the unwitting victims of hazardous and defective products annually. While many defective products are the result of manufacturers that do not implement proper quality controls and product testing, other defective products find their way into the market because businesses do not wish to incur the cost to correct known defects. At Montlick and Associates, our Loganville product liability attorneys are committed to holding businesses financially responsible for the injuries their products cause and to seeking fair compensation for victims.

Although there are safety standards that are promulgated for many products by the Consumer Protection Safety Commission, these standards are sometimes violated by companies that care more about their bottom line than consumer safety. The federal agency gathers reports of injuries, fatalities, and near misses regarding the products under its purview. However, this necessarily means that the agency does not generally take action until after a product has harmed consumers. There are many victims of dangerous or defective products that are injured before enough reports have accumulated to prompt a recall of the product.

With some products like pharmaceuticals and medical products, the company that manufactures the dangerous or defective product may continue to promote the product despite evidence of adverse side effects or serious complications. The drug or medical product manufacturer may even promote the product for uses not approved by the FDA (called “off label uses”) even though it is illegal.

Because our Loganville product liability law firm has been taking on large companies and their insurance companies since 1984, we are qualified to handle a broad range of defective product cases, including but not limited to those involving the following types of products:

  • Motor vehicles prone to roll over that cause roof crush injuries
  • Consumer electronics including lap top batteries that explode or present a fire risk
  • Faulty tires, brake systems, fuel systems, and other vehicle defects
  • Defective pharmaceuticals and medical products
  • Kids' toys and children’s products including cribs, playpens, toys, car seats, flammable clothing, and other products
  • Asbestos, lead paint, and other toxic chemicals or hazardous substances

When a consumer is injured or dies because of an accident caused by a defective or hazardous product, product liability law provides the legal basis for seeking compensation for one’s injuries. Product liability law permits an injured consumer to pursue compensation against anyone in the production or distribution network for a product. Liability may be based on three independent theories: (1) strict liability; (2) negligence; (3) breach of warranty.

Strict Liability: Strict liability permits imposition of financial responsibility on a company involved in the design, manufacture, or marketing of a product without fault provided the defect exists when the product leaves the business entity’s control. Since the business that produces and sells a product has exclusive access to identify and remedy defects, strict liability relieves the injured consumer of the responsibility for proving negligence and the precise negligent entity that caused the defect.

Negligence: Liability may also be based on negligence as with other accident cases resulting in injury. A negligence basis for imposing liability may be appropriate where a consumer can identify a specific business entity that failed to exercise ordinary care that resulted in the production of a defective product. Negligence can be difficult to prove in many product defect cases so strict liability can be an easier basis for imposing liability.

Breach of Warranty: Many products come with express warranties while other warranties are implied by law. When a product fails to conform to these warranties, the breach of warranty may be a basis for imposing liability for a product defect. Many products include disclaimers of liability to minimize the risk of being held liable for breach of warranty.

If you or a family member is injured by a defective product, our experienced Loganville product liability lawyers offer the extensive litigation resources and effective strategies that are essential when taking on large corporations that produce defective products. If you suffer injury caused by a product malfunction or defect, you should keep the packaging, instructions, warranty paperwork, and parts of the defective product. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one has died, our experienced Loganville product liability lawyers are committed to representing personal injury and wrongful death victims in obtaining compensation to rebuild their lives and support their families.

Loganville Personal Injury Attorneys

Montlick and Associates has been representing personal injury victims since our law firm was founded in 1984. Our law firm emphasizes customer service as a client-focused Loganville personal injury law firm. When our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers undertake a case, we devote our considerable experience and resources toward obtaining a measure of financial recovery that will ease the financial and emotional burdens created when one is injured by an intentional criminal act or careless accident. Because we know that many injury victims have had little or no prior contact with the legal system and personal injury process, we listen carefully to our clients so that we have the information to explain the process and options for their personal injury case in an understandable way.

The Loganville personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have represented thousands of clients and obtained millions of dollars in settlements and judgements for our clients.

While we have built a reputation in the greater Atlanta area that often persuades insurance companies to settle their cases on terms beneficial to our clients, we are trial attorneys and do not hesitate to pursue our clients’ interest in the courtroom. We take on large corporations, major insurance companies, and public entities to balance the scales of justice when one injured individual takes on large, well-funded defendants. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience and expertise that comes from handling a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases, such as car accidents, trucking accidents, asbestos-mesothelioma cases, defective product claims, medical malpractice claims, work injury claims, dog bites and many more.

We invite you to contact us if you or someone you love has suffered serious injury or a loved one has died. Some of the cases we routinely handle include:

Loganville Car Crash Claims (Motor Vehicle Crashes): If you suffer injury in a collision involving a motor vehicle, it is important to know your legal rights. While an insurance company representative may answer your questions, an insurance company adjuster’s loyalty is to the insurance company. The principle function of the insurance adjuster is to reduce the insurance company’s financial exposure. Anyone that is injured in a car accident should contact an attorney before dealing with the other driver’s insurance company. We handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, including trucking accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. If you have been the victim of an alcohol-impaired driver (drunken driver), inattentive driver, or other form of unsafe driving, our experienced Loganville car accident attorneys have obtained substantial recovery for many motor vehicle accident victims in Georgia.

Loganville Canine Attacks (Dog Bites): In Georgia, there are several legal theories for imposing liability on a dog owner for a canine attack or dog mauling incident. If a dog owner is aware that his or her dog has bit someone on a prior occasion, the dog owner may be held accountable for the injuries caused by a dog attack involving his or her dog. Even if the dog has not actually attacked or bitten someone previously, it is sufficient that the owner has reason to know that the dog has exhibited vicious propensities. The dog owner may also be liable for a dog mauling or dog attack when negligence by the owner in handling the dog results in a dog bite. A dog owner may even be strictly liable for a dog bite under the doctrine of “negligence per se” if a dog attack results from the failure of the owner to comply with municipal or county laws designed to prevent dog bites.

Loganville Wrongful Death Claims: A wrongful death occurs when a person’s illegal conduct or negligence causes death to another. The death may be the result of a car or tractor-trailer accident, product defect, assault, homicide, medical malpractice or other negligent action. If someone close to you has died, our experienced Loganville wrongful death attorneys know you may be struggling with a wide range of emotions so we offer a free case evaluation so that we can determine if you have a legal claim for financial compensation. This provides an opportunity for us to explain your legal options and clarify the legal process in a Georgia wrongful death case. Wrongful death cases are intended to ease the financial and emotional hardships created by the death of a parent, spouse, or child. A wrongful death claim can provide reimbursement for out of pocket expenses of the decedent as well as compensation for the loss of emotional and financial support of surviving loved ones.

Loganville Workers' Compensation Claims: If you have suffered a fall from a scaffolding on a construction site, a repetitive motion injury like carpal tunnel syndrome, or a back injury caused by defective equipment in an industrial plant, the Georgia workers' compensation system is designed to compensate you for your injury. No workplace is immune to accidents or job-related injuries so the workers' compensation system provides a no-fault basis for obtaining prompt relief from the financial challenges caused by a workplace injury. When a family member suffers serious injury, it can impose severe physical, mental and economic hardships on the victim and his or her family. We work closely with medical experts so that we can determine that you are receiving the full value of your claim. If an individual, business or public entity contributed to your injury, we may also file a personal injury claim against this third party on top of the workers' compensation claim.

Loganville Premises Liability Claims: Owners and managers of commercial property like hotels, businesses, commercial buildings, retail establishments, and other properties held open to the public have an affirmative legal obligation to protect those who come on their property from unreasonably dangerous hazards. Many premises liability claims involve slip and fall or trip and fall accidents on business or commercial premises and even construction sites. While many times a property owner will be financially responsible for an accident caused by a hazardous condition on his or her property, a detailed analysis of the specific facts and circumstances of the accident is necessary to be sure. Some of the types of premises liability claims our Loganville premises liability attorneys handle include construction site accidents, amusement park accidents, camp and horseback riding accidents, swimming pool accidents and negligent security accidents. We invite anyone who has been injured in an accident on the property of another to contact us to obtain a free case evaluation.

Loganville Product Defect Claims: If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident because an airbag malfunctioned or your vehicle suddenly accelerated, you may be entitled to file a defective product claim. Product defect claims are not only important so that injury victims are compensated, but they also provide financial motivation for companies to produce safer products. Generally, a product defect will not just injure a single victim, but many victims. At Montlick and Associates, our Loganville product defect attorneys investigate and pursue product defect claims involving many products and industries, including: defective vehicles that are prone to accidents or cause more serious injury; unsafe children’s products like cribs, playpens and toys; dangerous manufacturing equipment like heavy machinery and power tools that malfunction and many others. Our law firm has successfully pursued both individual and class action lawsuits against businesses that have produced defective and dangerous products. Montlick and Associates has the experience and financial resources to pursue product liability lawsuits against large corporations and their insurance companies.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one has died, our experienced Loganville personal injury lawyers are committed to representing personal injury and wrongful death victims in obtaining compensation to rebuild their lives and support their families.
