North Decatur Personal Injury Attorneys
If you have been involved in an auto accident or otherwise injured by the negligent, reckless or intentional actions of an individual, business enterprise or a public entity, you may have a right to pursue a legal claim to recover financial compensation for your injuries. One of the most important tasks an accident victim can take after suffering a serious injury or losing a loved one because of the wrongful conduct of another is to seek legal advice from an experienced North Decatur personal injury lawyer. A personal injury attorney has the experience and expertise to evaluate your case, suggest legal options, protect your legal rights and help you obtain fair payment for your injuries or loss of a loved one.
A personal injury is essentially a physical or mental injury sustained because another party or parties engaged in unreasonably unsafe, reckless or intentional wrongful actions. It can sometimes be hard to know if you have a legal claim for personal injury because many factors may impact the viability of a personal injury claim, including the severity of your injuries, the conduct of the other driver, any actions of your own that may have contributed to the accident, the identity of the potential defendant, availability of insurance and other factors.
Many accident victims in North Decatur labor under the misconception that settling a personal injury case, like a car accident, trucking accident or motorcycle accident is fairly straightforward. It is easy to understand how someone might get this idea if they are holding a law enforcement accident report that indicates that the other driver was at-fault. However, insurance providers often dispute such findings of fault and assert theories that assign some or all of the blame for an accident to the victim. Insurance companies also fight tenaciously on the severity and cause of one’s injuries often combing through medical records to attribute serious injuries to prior incidents.
Our experienced North Decatur personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been successfully representing injury victims in Georgia since 1984 in a wide range of cases, including the following:
North Decatur Car Crash Injuries And Other Motor Vehicle Accidents: There are many types of motor vehicle accidents, involving all types of motor vehicles in North Decatur and throughout Georgia, on a daily basis. Most drivers of passenger cars, motorcycles, big-rig trucks (tractor-trailers), buses, bikes and pedestrians underestimate the potential danger of being involved in a collision. Cars and other motor vehicles are powerful machines that can cause devastating permanent injuries. The insurance company for the other driver becomes your adversary in the wake of a serious car accident or motor vehicle collision. They may offer marginal settlements to close cases quickly and avoid paying the real value of a car accident claim. Our North Decatur car accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates can analyze the facts of your case and advise you regarding your rights and options.
North Decatur Unsafe and Defective Product Claims: Injuries caused by products that are unsafe because of a defect in the design, production or marketing/labeling of the product are governed by product liability law. While most consumers assume that products on the market are generally safe, there are many defective products that pose a substantial risk of injury to consumers including motor vehicles, prescription drugs and medical devices. These are common examples, but effectively any defective product can pose a risk of physical injury to consumers. Our experienced North Decatur product liability attorneys pursue product liability claims based on a range of legal theories including negligence, strict liability and breach of implied or express warranty. Our law firm has been challenging large corporations who endanger consumers with their products for nearly three decades.
North Decatur Dog Attacks and Dog Bites: When victims are attacked or bitten by a pit bull, Rottweiler or other dog, the experience can be terrifying and result in severe physical injuries and disfigurement. Owners of dogs generally are required to prevent their dog from attacking or biting innocent victims, especially if the owner has knowledge that his or her dog has exhibited aggressive behavior in the past. However, dog bite cases can be challenging because they require an intensive factual analysis and careful investigation to locate witnesses, obtain evidence, secure a report of the incident and medical records, as well as take other measures to preserve a North Decatur dog bite case. Our experienced North Decatur dog bite lawyers provide aggressive representation of dog bite victims.
North Decatur Wrongful Death Legal Actions: A wrongful death legal action refers to a lawsuit seeking damages caused by the misconduct of an individual or entity that results in a fatality. Wrongful death cases require extensive knowledge of every area of tort (wrongful conduct causing injury) law, such as car accidents, commercial trucking crashes, premises liability, medical malpractice, defective products and more. Our experienced Decatur wrongful death lawyers assist our clients in seeking compensation for the harm suffered by the decedent and the fatal accident victim’s family. Wrongful death lawsuits are subject to strict timing requirements, which can pose a challenge when family members are grieving for a loved one. We invite you to contact our compassionate and dedicated North Decatur wrongful death attorneys so that we can evaluate your case and advise you regarding preserving your death-related accident claim.
North Decatur Hazardous Premises Claims: Georgia law generally requires that owners of commercial and public property make their premises safe for visitors on their property. The scope of this duty depends on a number of factors but property owners must be reasonably vigilant about protecting visitors from a wide range of hazards, including, vicious or unrestrained dogs, inadequate security, poorly maintained flooring and stairways, poor lighting and other hazards. Our experienced North Decatur dangerous premises attorneys may be able to represent you in seeking compensation for your injuries if you experience injury because of a hazard on the property of others.
North Decatur Workers' Compensation Actions: If you are injured in a workplace accident or because of a violent crime at the worksite, you may have a right to seek workers' compensation benefits. These benefits may include medical care, temporary disability payments, permanent disability payments, rehabilitative care and other benefits. However, you are not entitled to compensation for certain intangible damages that are common in personal injury cases. Our experienced North Decatur workers' compensation attorneys at Montlick and Associates often pursue both a workers' compensation benefits claim and a personal injury lawsuit against a third party so that we can obtain additional compensation for our clients including pain and suffering, impaired quality of life, loss of consortium and other damages.
