Peachtree City Auto Accidents: Car accidents continue to be the leading cause of avoidable fatalities and debilitating injuries. There are approximately six millions motor vehicles per year that are involved in collisions. Although many car accidents in Peachtree City are caused by negligent drivers, faulty vehicle components or equipment, roads designed or maintained with correctable hazards, and repair shops that do substandard work may also be factors that contribute to serious car accidents in Peachtree city. Approximately, 11,000 people per year die at the hands of drivers committing DUI and almost half that many die at the hands of drivers who are using cell phones. When you or someone you loves suffer severe injury caused by this type of irresponsible and careless driving, we invite you to learn how the experienced Peachtree City car accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates may be able to help.
Peachtree City Dog Bites: Peachtree City residents should not be placed at risk of injury from dog attacks and disfiguring dog bite injuries. While there are several legal theories that may be employed to impose liability on a homeowner whose dog bites an innocent victim, these cases requires a careful factual inquiry to determine the best approach. Sometimes dogs will have a past history of aggressive activity that may form the basis of liability. This requires developing factual evidence that the dog has acted viciously in the past. In other situations, it may be necessary to prove that the homeowner through acts or omissions failed to prevent a dog attack. When the dog owner violates a leash law this may be a basis for imposing strict liability for any injuries.
Peachtree City Premise Liability: Premises liability is the body of law that establishes liability rules for property owners that fail to take proper actions to keep their property safe. When property owners fail to exercise reasonable care to keep their property safe and free of hazards, the most common form of premise liability claim involves slip and falls on stairs with broken steps or missing railings, flooring with defects, and other hazards that can cause a serious fall. Other premise liability cases include animal attacks, swimming pool drownings, violent crimes from inadequate security and other incidents where a property owner’s carelessness may result in injury to visitors. Premise liability law is a nuanced area of law because there are many factors that impact whether a property owner owes a duty of care to a particular visitor and the exact nature of that duty. Our experienced Peachtree City attorneys offer a free consultation so that we can evaluate the facts surrounding your injury and determine if we can file a premises liability claim for you.
Peachtree City Trucking Accidents: With increasing efforts to make roadways safe, both the federal and Georgia state agencies are imposing higher commercial vehicle safety standards and regulations. However, many trucking businesses, drivers and owner operators of tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles ignore these safeguards to save time and money. Tractor-trailer accident cases are an extremely complex area of motor vehicle accident claims. Our experienced Peachtree City car accident attorneys understand the importance of investigation and preservation of evidence in tractor-trailer cases.
Peachtree City Wrongful Death: A wrongful death action is based on the death of a person as a result of negligence (or other type of unjust action) on the part of an individual government entity or commercial enterprise. When an accident or violent crime victim dies because of the misfeasance of a third party, the victim’s survivors may be entitled to monetary damages as a result of the improper conduct. Wrongful death cases require attorneys that diligently seek results and represent clients with the compassion and understanding. Our Peachtree City wrongful death attorneys have been fighting for families that have lost a loved one to the inappropriate conduct of a third party since 1984.
Peachtree City Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents are typically regarded as the most deadly of all motor vehicle accidents. Approximately, eighty percent of all motorcycle accidents result in injury or fatalities. Statistical data reveals that motorcycle enthusiasts are 83 percent more likely to suffer injury in a collision than anyone other type of vehicle occupant. Because motorcycle riders have no structural protection from their vehicle or other safeguards like lap belts, shoulder harnesses or airbags, collisions involving motorcyclists often cause severe permanent injuries. Head injuries are common, especially when the rider is not wearing a helmet. The nature of the injuries experienced in a motorcycle accident often has permanent debilitating effects that impair a rider’s physical and cognitive functions. Our dedicated Peachtree City motorcycle attorneys understand the importance of aggressively pursuing compensation for victims of this type of severe injury.
Peachtree City Nursing Home Abuse (Nursing Home Neglect): Far too often the services provided in nursing homes are substandard, or worse, elderly residents are subjected to physical or sexual abuse, financial exploitation or chronic neglect, including the failure to provide adequate nutrition or hydration. Nursing homes are heavily regulated, particularly those that receive Medicare. Nursing homes are required to offer services that provide access to quality care and to maintain the highest practical mental, psychosocial and physical care along with other requirements. When nursing homes attempt to save money by not screening new employees, offering inadequate training or radically understaffing facilities, the consequences can be devastating for elderly nursing home residents. Our Peachtree City nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys have been providing persuasive advocacy for abuse and neglect victims in nursing homes for decades.
Peachtree City Pedestrian Accidents: When a driver that is talking on a cell phone blows through a red light, the consequences can be life altering for a pedestrian. While crosswalks, flashing walk/don’t walk signals and other safety measures are designed to protect pedestrians, sometimes these measures are inadequate to neutralize the impact of a negligent driver. Atlanta suburban areas like Peachtree City have been rated as among the most dangerous roads for pedestrians. Whether you are injured in a pedestrian accident caused by a drunk driver or the failure of a government entity to build a safe roadway, the experienced Peachtree City pedestrian accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates investigate our clients’ pedestrian accident claims so that we can identify all potential defendants and assess the optimal approach for pursuing our client’s monetary recovery claim.
Peachtree City Construction Accidents: More and more construction worksites are accidents waiting to happen, with a multitude of unsafe conditions and hazards, such as trenches without adequate shoring, defective heavy equipment, improperly operated machinery and a multitude of other safety hazards. If you are injured in a construction accident in Peachtree City, our dedicated team of Peachtree construction accident lawyers can evaluate your right to workers’ compensation benefits or even to proceed with a personal injury claim that may provide more substantial damages.
Peachtree City Product Liability Attorneys: Product liability law is the body of law that provides for compensation for a victim’s injury when manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers sale dangerous products that injure innocent consumers. The theory of liability in defective products cases may be based on strict liability, negligence, consumer protection claims and a breach of express or implied warranty. If our clients are injured by dangerous products, our experienced Peachtree City defective products attorneys have the experience and resources to challenge large corporations.
Peachtree City Workers’ Compensation Attorneys: The Atlanta metro area including suburban Peachtree City is considered one of the leading business regions in the country with a broad spectrum of industries. Each of these sectors of the economy has certain work related hazards. The workers’ compensation system provides for compensation without the delay of litigation and removes the obstacle of proving fault associated with a personal injury claim. However, the compensation recoverable in a worker’s compensation claim typically is limited to medical care, a portion of income replacement and compensation based on your degree of permanent disability. Workers’ compensation claims do not provide damages for non-tangible losses like pain and suffering and impaired quality of life that can be far more substantial than an injury victim’s economic losses. Because of this limitation of the workers’ compensation system, our Peachtree workers’ compensation attorneys at Montlick and Associates often pursue both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims simultaneously.
