Our Powder Springs personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been providing legal representation and zealous advocacy to victims of careless accidents, intentional misconduct and social injustice for almost three decades across the state of Georgia. Montlick and Associates is dedicated to the principle of equal justice to all regardless of political, financial or social power or influence. At our Powder Springs personal injury law firm, our experienced attorneys and staff recognize that personal injury cases often involve taking on large insurance companies, multi-national corporations, public entities and other parties with substantial financial resources and political power.
Our Powder Springs personal injury law firm represents our clients with attention to detail, personal service and the tenacity to take on powerful influential individuals, corporations, hospitals, medical professionals and public entities that engage in wrongful conduct that causes injury and wrongful death. We are zealous advocates for the rights of our injured clients. Our Powder Springs law firm is also dedicated to influencing the future behavior of large corporations that place profits above public safety. Although we have handled hundreds upon hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases, each personal injury case requires individualized strategies and tactics. Since our law firm was established in 1984, we have provided compassionate and aggressive legal representation to clients arising out of the full spectrum of negligent, reckless and intentional misconduct, including but not limited to the following:
Powder Springs Auto Accident Attorneys (Motor Vehicle Collision Claims): Motor vehicle accidents of all types, including cars, trucks, SUVs, tractor-trailers, buses and bicycles continue to exact an enormous toll, accounting for almost 3 million injuries and over 30,000 fatalities per year. Powder Springs car accidents remain common because more drivers are operating motor vehicles while distracted by cell phones and paying less attention to the road. Victims of motor vehicle accidents often may be left with serious injuries that result in permanent disability and financial devastation. We recognize that auto accident victims may be bewildered and overwhelmed by anxiety so our experienced Powder Springs car accident attorneys explain the personal injury claim process and provide reasonable, timely updates on the progress of our clients’ auto accident claims. Insurance companies will typically fight aggressively to avoid paying legitimate claims so our Powder Springs auto accident attorneys conduct thorough investigations, timely analysis of current law, effective negotiation and persuasive advocacy. Our Powder Springs motor vehicle accident law firm handles the full gamut of motor vehicle accident claims, such as: Passenger car accidents, trucking accidents (tractor-trailer collisions), motorcycle accidents, rollover accidents, head-on collisions, T-bone accidents, bicycle accidents, busing accidents, pedestrian accidents, DUI accidents and distracted driving accidents.
Powder Springs Dog Bite Lawyers (Dog Maulings & Dog Attacks): Dozens of people are killed in dog attacks annually, and over 4.5 million people per year suffer dog bite injuries. Sadly, children are the most common victims who suffer a dog bite during a dog attack. Irresponsible dog owners often disregard violent behavior by their dog or encourage such behavior. Dog owners may also make a conscious decision to own breeds with a known propensity for viciousness. When dog owners turn a blind eye to the vicious propensities of their dog, they may be liable for injuries that result to innocent dog bite victims. Dog ownership comes with the responsibility to restrain one’s dog according to applicable laws prescribing requirements to keep dogs enclosed or on a leash. When a dog bite victim who has not antagonized a dog suffers injury because of a dog attack, the homeowner may be held responsible for failure to comply with applicable law. When vicious or improperly restrained dogs injure children and other victims, we are committed to diligently pursuing the full compensation for our clients’ physical injuries, emotional trauma and financial loss.
Powder Springs Wrongful Death Lawyers: There is no amount of financial compensation that can replace your family member. When a loved one dies because of another person’s careless behavior or intentional criminal act, our experienced Powder Springs wrongful death lawyers are committed to helping our clients protect their interest during difficult emotional times, which may be compounded by severe financial hardships. Our Powder Springs wrongful death law firm has a proven history of successfully seeking financial security and justice for families that have needlessly lost a loved one. Our Powder Springs wrongful death attorneys can analyze and prepare the complex documentation to support your claim, develop a persuasive case on the law and facts as well as provide compassionate but object legal advice and representation at a stressful and emotional time.
Powder Springs Workers' Compensation Lawyers: Virtually all Georgia employees are covered by their employer’s workers' compensation insurance so they are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits if they suffer injury while engaged in work-based functions. Workers' compensation benefits under Georgia law may provide free medical care, partial compensation for lost income and compensation for permanent disability. Although an employer has a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for all employees, you are not required to establish the negligence of your employer to successfully recover workers' compensation benefits. There are many types of workplace hazards that can cause severe injury, such as chemical burns, defective equipment, lack of enforcement of safety regulations and carelessness of other employees. It is extremely risky to attempt to proceed without a workers' compensation attorney because an employer’s workers' compensation insurance carrier has virtually no incentive to take action that is for the benefit of an injured employee. Workers' compensation insurance providers lose money when claims are made so they will fight diligently to prevent paying claims or to minimize the amount paid out on a claim. Our experienced Powder Springs workers' compensation lawyers may even file a personal injury claim against a negligent third party like other contractors, machinery suppliers or others. We handle workers' compensation claims in a broad range of industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, administrative, construction and others.
Powder Springs Premises Liability Lawyers: Property owners have a legal responsibility to take precautions to prevent safety hazards from causing injury to those who come on their land. With the exception of those who trespass on one’s property, premises owners may be held liable for failing to reasonably measure to avoid preventable injuries which are caused by forseeable hazards to those who come on their property. Even if the property owner claims that he or she was not aware of the hazard, our experienced Powder Springs premises liability lawyers may be able to establish that the owner had “constructive knowledge.” This essentially means that the property owner should have known of the hazardous condition. Common examples of hazards that may be the basis of premises liability claims in Powder Springs includes:
- Failing to properly enclose a pool to prevent access from children
- Not posting a clear warning near a stairway with a broken step or missing railing
- Vicious dogs not properly restrained
- Lack of security measures at a commercial business
Under Georgia law, the duty of a property owner may be different based on who comes on the property, the nature of the property and the purpose for the visit. Business owners are generally expected not only to take remedial measures to address hazards like foreign substances on the floor but also conduct reasonable inspections and perform maintenance services to discover such hazards. If you suffer serious injury in a slip and fall accident, dog attack, pool or spa accident or other premises liability accident, our experienced Powder Springs premises liability attorneys investigate the facts and analyze the applicable legal duty of property owners so that we can advise our clients regarding your rights and remedies.
Powder Springs Defective Products Lawyers: Product manufacturers and the companies that sell their products have a legal responsibility to undertake appropriate testing of their product and implement quality control procedures so that consumers are not exposed to the risk of harm by unsafe or defective products. Because the ability to identify potential defects that may cause injury is exclusively within the control of companies that make and market products, they are held to a high legal standard to provide products that do not cause injury and/or warn of potential hazards. If a dangerous or defective product injures you, we invite you to contact our experienced Powder Springs product defect attorneys so that we can evaluate your case.
