Panthersville Personal Injury Attorneys
The area of Georgia law that addresses conduct that causes injury to another is known as tort law. Tort law establishes legal principles that define the basis for imposing a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to avoid causing injury to others. A breach of the legal duty to exercise reasonable care to avoid causing injury to another may be based on unreasonably unsafe conduct. The violation of a law or safety regulation that is designed to protect consumers from harm may also be a basis for imposing liability for personal injuries. When you are struck by a motor vehicle at a crosswalk as you cross the street or a loved one dies in a head-on collision with a drunken driver, you may have the right to pursue financial compensation for personal injury or wrongful death.
Life-altering injuries may be caused by lack of attention or carelessness as well as more egregious conduct that is reckless or intentional. There are many kinds of activities that may be the basis of a personal injury claim, such as medical errors and omissions, motor vehicle accidents, trip and falls, construction injuries, nursing home abuse and neglect, and other acts involving unsafe conduct. At Montlick and Associates, our Panthersville pesonal injury attorneys have been providing effective legal representation and persuasive advocacy to obtain compensation for personal injury and wrongful death victims since our law firm was established in 1984. Some of the types of cases we handle include but are not limited to the following:.
Panthersville Auto Accidents (Motor Vehicle Accident Claims): Most people that are injured in an auto accident are the victims of distracted or careless drivers. While every motor vehicle accident is unique, there are certain types of unsafe driving behavior that cause a disproportionate number of car accidents, including speeding, multi-tasking while driving, drinking and driving, violating vehicle safety laws, running stop signs or red lights, and other forms of dangerous driving. At Montlick and Associates, our dedicated and experienced team of Panthersville auto accident attorneys understand the intense pain, emotional distress and financial burdens with which motor vehicle collision victims must cope. Our Panthersville car accident lawyers will handle negotiations with the other driver’s insurance company and legal paperwork so that you can focus on healing.
Panthersville Canine Attacks (Dog Bite Claims): While many families own dogs that have earned the moniker of “man’s best friend,” there are dog owners that are aware of aggressive and menacing behavior by their dogs. Despite this knowledge that their dog has exhibited a tendency to be vicious, these dog owners disregard the risk of a dangerous dog attack with tragic results. When you are injured in a dog attack that results in a dog bite or mauling incident, a personal injury claim may provide compensation for your injuries and may hold the dog owner responsible for the owner’s indifference to the safety of others. A dog owner may also be legally responsible for injuries from a dog bite incident caused by the owner’s negligence or failure to comply with leash laws. Our experienced Panthersville dog bite attorneys carefully investigate our clients’ claims so that we can develop an effective strategy for dealing with the dog owner’s homeowner's insurance.
Panthersville Wrongful Death Actions: Our attorneys at Montlick and Associates empathize with families that lose someone they love because of the carelessness or intentional misconduct of a third party. While a wrongful death action will not alleviate the emotional heartache of losing a spouse, child, or parent, it may provide the ability to cover hospital bills, funeral expenses and the loss of financial support of a breadwinner. There are two types of claims in a wrongful death action: (1) a survival claim to compensate the estate of the fatal accident victim and (2) a wrongful death claim to compensate family members for their own losses. Our experienced Panthersville wrongful death attorneys are committed to providing representation to the families of fatal accident victims.
Panthersville Workers' Compensation Claims: When you are injured during a fall from a scaffolding in a construction accident or by malfunctioning machinery in a manufacturing plant, you can seek workers' compensation benefits, which includes medical treatment, temporary disability benefits to cover lost wages, and permanent disability benefits based on your time off work. Our experienced Panthersville workers' compensation lawyers guide our clients through the claim process and can even explore the possibility of a personal injury lawsuit if a third party contributed to your workplace injury.
Panthersville Premises Liability Claims: When business owners fail to take reasonable care to clear their property of dangerous hazards and conditions that may cause injury, the manager or owner of the property may be obligated to cover the cost of medical expenses, hospitalization, lost wages, pain and suffering, diminished enjoyment of life and other damages. The duty owed to those who come on one’s property is most exacting for commercial property owners that invite visitors on their property. Because the breadth of the duty owed is based on a fact-driven inquiry, it is important to have an experienced Panthersville premises liability attorney investigate your case. Our premises liability attorneys at Montlick and Associates are prepared to handle negotiations with the property owner’s insurance provider to obtain the compensation our clients need and to zealously litigate our clients' claims when appropriate.
Panthersville Product Defect Claims: Consumers have a right to expect that product manufacturers will take adequate precautions to protect consumers from unsafe or defective products. Typically, this means that a corporation or other business entity that manufactures or distributes a product should carefully inspect and test the product. When a business fails to eliminate defects from the products it markets, any entity involved in manufacturing and distributing the product may be held accountable. Our Panthersville product defect lawyers can investigate to determine if you have the legal basis for a product defect claim if you are injured by a wide range of products, such as: drugs with serious adverse side effects, children’s products that are unsafe, motor vehicles with defects that cause collision or more serious injury, and many other types of claims involving unsafe products.
