Tucker Construction Accidents Attorneys

Helping Injured Construction Workers Rebuild Their Lives– Tucker Construction Accident Lawyers

While some people assume that construction injuries are uncommon, the risk of injury facing those in the construction trades is much higher than in other occupations. When a construction worker suffers serious injury, the worker and his or her entire family may experience difficult challenges, including chronic pain, demanding treatment regimens, extreme emotional distress and overwhelming financial obstacles. Construction accidents may cause traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries and other severe injuries that prevent one from living a normal life unimpaired by physical or mental limitations.

At Montlick and Associates, our experienced and dedicated Tucker construction accident attorneys have been providing effective legal representation to those injured in accidents on construction projects for nearly thirty years. Individuals injured on construction sites may be unable to continue the same type of physically demanding labor so a personal injury case may provide the resources to obtain quality medical care and replacement income to provide for your family. We recognize that many construction accident victims have never been involved in the legal process so we work diligently to provide timely updates and straightforward answers to our clients’ questions.

Workers' Compensation Claims & Third-Party Personal Injury Claims in Tucker Construction Accidents

When you are injured in a construction accident, you generally will have a right to pursue workers' compensation benefits from your employer’s insurance carrier. These benefits include free medical treatment, temporary disability pay and compensation for any permanent disability. The workers' compensation system provides these benefits even when your injuries were not caused by any negligent conduct involving your employer or co-workers. Although this eliminates the need to establish fault to obtain workers' compensation benefits, the available recovery is usually fairly limited compared to what may be recovered in a personal injury claim.

Because we recognize that construction accident victims often suffer serious, debilitating injuries, we investigate all possible avenues to maximize the potential recovery for our clients. We explore the facts and circumstances of our client’s construction accident to identify viable third-parties against whom we may pursue a personal injury lawsuit. While the negligent conduct of a third-party must be established in a personal injury claim, the types of damages that are available generally are far more extensive. A personal injury claim may include financial compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, impact on quality of life, punitive damages, loss of consortium and other forms of compensation not covered by the workers' compensation system.

Common Types of Tucker Construction Injuries

We handle a broad spectrum of construction accidents in Tucker and the surrounding areas of Georgia, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Electrocution and Burn Injuries: These accidents may result in damage to internal organs, skin burns, spinal cord injuries, heart damage, broken bones and death. Severe injuries of this nature may require long periods of physical rehabilitation.
  • Injuries from Scaffolding Accidents: These types of injuries generally result in the most debilitating permanent injuries. Because scaffoldings may be assembled improperly or defective, these types of errors may result in falls from high elevations.
  • Trench Collapse Accidents: Construction projects often involve tunnels and trenches that can collapse and cause suffocation, bone crush injuries and fatalities.
  • Falls from Elevations: Falls comprise a full one-third of all construction site mishaps, which is the most common type of construction accident. There are many types of falling accidents that occur on construction sites, including falls down elevator shafts, trip and falls and falls from partially constructed roofs.
  • Heavy Equipment Accidents: Many types of machinery can cause devastating injuries when operators are not adequately trained or fail to operate the equipment properly. The typical construction site has many types of heavy equipment that may cause injury, such as forklifts, tractors, cranes, bulldozers and more.

Construction accident legal claims are complex because they often involve multiple parties in a rapidly evolving work environment. Evidence can be altered or destroyed, which complicates the process of proving one’s claim. The need to establish the fault of a third-party makes timely investigation of the accident scene and equipment important to protecting your construction accident personal injury claim.

Tucker Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Devastating permanent injuries are the norm when negligent drivers of cars, trucks and SUVs cause collisions involving motorcyclists. Those who use motorcycles as their primary means of travel enjoy no structural protection, safety restraints or air bags as protection from injury. The limited forms of protection that are available to a motorcyclist – leather jackets and motorcycle helmets – are woefully inadequate. This lack of protection routinely results in head injuries, spinal injuries, compound fractures, broken bones, broken ribs and other forms of permanent injury or wrongful death.

At Montlick and Associates, our experienced Tucker motorcycle accident attorneys understand the critical role of a personal injury financial recovery in providing compensation for hospital expenses, medical bills, loss of wages and other forms of financial loss. Our motorcycle accident lawyers recognize the unique risks that face motorcycle collision victims. We have been representing clients in motorcycle accidents in Tucker and the surrounding areas of Georgia since the inception of our law firm in 1984.

Not only are motorcycle accident victims inclined to suffer more severe injuries, but they also are far more likely to be involved in a collision. Motorcycles are less visible to other vehicles because of the size differential between motorcycles and other vehicles. The size and maneuverability of motorcycles also means that they often are present in places that motorists do not expect them. When drivers make errors because they are unaware of the presence of motorcycles, riders cannot respond as quickly because bikes have limited stability.

The high risk of injury and wrongful death posed to motorcyclists is clearly reflected in motorcycle accident statistics. A shocking report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that 8 in 10 motorcycle accidents result in fatalities or severe permanent injuries most typically traumatic brain injuries. Motorcycle accident victims also are 35 times more likely to die in a collision than occupants of passenger cars according to the NHTSA report.

Sadly, the report also found that the majority of these life-altering head injuries could have been prevented by use of a motorcycle helmet. The risk of suffering a fatal head injury in a motorcycle crash is reduced by 40 percent when wearing an approved motorcycle helmet. Georgia is one of many states that mandate helmets that meet Department of Transportation safety standards for all motorcyclists. This means that novelty helmets that lack the appropriate level of protection are not an acceptable alternative.

While there are many forms of negligence by passenger vehicle drivers that contribute to motorcycle accidents, they include the following:

  • Improper left turns and U-turns
  • Lack of care near intersections
  • Failure to check blind spots when merging and changing lanes
  • Operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Driver distractions (e.g. cell phone use, eating and drinking, grooming)
  • Cutting off motorcyclists
  • Not observing legally required following distance
  • Failure to observe right-of-way
  • Unsafe speed (violation of the speed limit or driving too fast for weather or road conditions)

While most motorcycle accidents are caused by unsafe motorists, there are other factors that may contribute to devastating motorcycle crashes. When motorcycles are designed or manufactured with defective components, the company that manufactures the motorcycle may be financially responsible for any injuries or fatalities. Government agencies responsible for designing, building and maintaining roadways may also share liability.

While a negligent driver may cause a variety of serious injuries, head injuries are the most typical type of injury even when a motorcyclist is wearing protective head gear. While a motorcycle helmet may reduce the severity and frequency of permanent head injuries, they will not eliminate such injuries.

There are two types of head injuries: closed-head injuries and open-head injuries. Closed-head injuries occur when the force of impact causes the brain to collide with the hard inner surface of the skull. When there is a sudden acceleration or deceleration this can cause the brain to impact the inside of the skull. The rapid alteration in the speed of the vehicle combined with the sudden impact against a stationary object, the roadway or another vehicle, can result in debilitating brain injuries. By contrast, an open-head injury involves exposed wounds or fracturing of the skull when a foreign object compromises the integrity of the skull.

When you suffer head injuries or other serious motorcycle accident injuries, our dedicated Tucker motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to seek multiple forms of compensation depending on your specific circumstances, which may include:

  • Costs associated with medical treatment & hospitalization
  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Property damage (e.g. vehicle repair/replacement)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost past and current wages
  • Costs of burial/funeral
  • Punitive damages

Be aware of your legal rights! If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident because of the negligent, intentional or reckless actions of a third party, you may qualify for financial compensation.

Tucker Truck Accident Attorneys

When you are involved in a tractor-trailer collision in Tucker or the surrounding areas of Georgia, the goal of obtaining fair financial compensation can be far more complicated than in the case of other motor vehicle collisions. A trucking accident is not just a simple traffic accident with bigger, more dangerous vehicles. These types of collisions involve a variety of special issues, including complicated relationships between potentially liable parties, a myriad of state and federal regulations, trucking industry practices, prevention of evidence destruction and other factors.

At Montlick and Associates, our experienced Tucker truck accident attorneys have successfully represented many trucking accident victims. We know that many parties may contribute to a collision involving a semi-truck, including the driver, truck owner, shipper, trucking company, public entities and vehicle manufacturer. The physics of big-rig collisions mean that the occupants of a passenger vehicle frequently suffer extremely serious injuries. While semi-truck accidents constitute only three percent of all motor vehicle collisions, they account for a much higher percentage of permanent injuries, and one in eight motor vehicle deaths are caused by large trucks.

There is an extensive matrix of federal and state regulations that govern the semi-truck industry. These laws and regulations establish safety rules and standards that regulate truck driver, commercial carriers, and big-rig owner-operators. This regulatory framework provides standards that drivers must meet and plays a critical role in determining who is accountable for trucking accidents. The regulatory agencies responsible for providing these standards for the trucking industry are the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Department of Transportation (DOT). The state of Georgia also imposes trucking regulations.

There are many causes of trucking accidents in Georgia, including but not limited to the following:

  • Overloaded tractor-trailers
  • Fatigued truck drivers
  • Tractor-trailer operators using narcotics or alcohol
  • Failure of trucking companies to conduct proper pre-employment screening
  • Inadequate training or supervision of commercial drivers
  • Semi-truck operators traveling at excessive rates of speed
  • Poor route selection that places semi-trucks on unsafe roads
  • Inadequate maintenance of brakes and tires
  • Faulty manufacturing of trucking system components
  • Failure to adapt driving practices in poor weather

Until recent years, trucking companies used a shell game to avoid legal responsibility, employing vague and indirect relationships between entities. The trucking company would lease the truck and use owner-operators as independent contractors. The trucking company would deny liability for poor maintenance or non-existent inspections because it did not own the vehicle while distancing itself from operation of the vehicle because the driver was not an employee. While federal regulations now prevent trucking companies from evading responsibility if their “placard” is on an owner-operator's vehicle, this scheme provides insight into the lengths commercial carriers will go to so that they can avoid liability for injuries caused by their drivers.

Trucking accident evidence must be acquired from a wide range of sources, including federal agencies, commercial carrier records, black box event data recorders, driver logbooks, big-rig damage, emails or other correspondence between the truck driver and trucking company and more. Federal and state regulations make it mandatory that a certified truck inspector examine a commercial rig and trailer before they are cleared from the scene of a trucking accident. These inspections lead to reports regarding the mechanical condition of the vehicle. It is important to obtain these reports that will not be included in the police accident report.

Event data recorders that are installed on most semi-trucks are like black boxes on airplanes. They provide critical information about potential causes of Tucker trucking accidents, such as driver error, mechanical problems and excessively long driving shifts. Some of the specific information that can be obtained from a black box includes:

  • Braking prior to a crash
  • Speed immediately preceding the collision
  • Global positioning systems
  • Length of time the vehicle is on the road
  • Email communication between the trucking company and driver
  • Overall speed patterns

This information can be invaluable, especially when truck drivers try to distort or manipulate evidence. When a tractor-trailer is repaired and put back into operation, it can result in deletion of important black box data. Our Tucker semi-truck accident lawyers understand the importance of proactively protecting important evidence of fault and causation.

If you are involved in a trucking accident in Tucker, you may suffer from a serious range of injuries, including:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Head and debilitating brain injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Limb amputation
  • Whiplash
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

Because of the massive size of tractor-trailers, these types of serious injuries are common. Trucking accident injuries can lead to long periods of lost income and extensive medical bills. Our experienced Tucker semi-truck lawyers may be able to pursue compensation for the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost salary, wages or other compensation from employment
  • Expenses associated with medical care
  • Impact on quality of life
  • Vehicle replacement/repair costs
  • Impairment of companionship and services of a spouse
  • Wrongful death damages (burial/funeral costs)
  • Punitive damages

Tucker Product Liability Attorneys

There are thousands of people who suffer injury every year caused by unsafe and defective products. The area of law that defines the legal standards and rules for imposing liability for defective products is “product liability law.” This area of law sometimes eases the legal burden of establishing fault in cases involving unsafe or poorly made products. When a person is injured by a malfunctioning air bag in a motor vehicle, child’s toy with a choking hazard or other unsafe or dangerous product, the accident victim may have a right to seek damages against anyone in the manufacturing-distribution network, including the manufacturer of individual components, the manufacturer of the consumer product, the wholesaler and the retailer.

Poorly designed or shoddily manufactured products can cause permanent and debilitating injuries and wrongful death. At Montlick and Associates, our dedicated Tucker product liability attorneys understand the extensive resources needed to take on the makers of defective motor vehicles, drugs with harmful side effects, laptop batteries that pose fire hazards and other hazardous products. Product liability cases frequently involve industry experts, extensive testing, investigation of manufacturing processes and other extensive resources. Our Tucker product liability lawyers have been representing consumers who fall victim to dangerous and defective products since our law firm was founded in 1984.

Consumer products are expected to meet the ordinary expectations of customers. When a product malfunctions or fails to perform as anticipated because of a defect or hazard, product liability law typically gives consumers a right to seek financial compensation for resulting injuries. Product liability law is based in state law involving claims rooted in the legal theories of strict liability, negligence and breach of warranty.

Common types of product defects

The process of proving a product liability claim involves establishing that the product poses an unreasonable danger to consumers. The types of product defects that may be the basis of a product liability claim include design defects, manufacturing defects and marketing defects.

Design Defects: Design defects are innate to the product even when the manufacturing process goes perfectly. These defects occur even when the product conforms precisely to its specifications. While an injured consumer may need to establish negligence, sometimes strict liability may apply if it can be shown that a cost-effective alternative design was available. If the nature of the product is so unreasonably dangerous that it could not be safely used by consumers, this may mitigate the need to establish that there was a reasonably safe alternative design.

Manufacturing Defects: Manufacturing defects are caused by problems in the actual process of assembling or manufacturing the product. These defects represent a deviation from the product specifications of the designer or manufacturer. These cases can be easier to prove because the manufacturer specifications provide evidence that the particular unit that caused the injury did not conform to its design.

Because it can be extremely difficult to establish what went wrong in the manufacturing process that led to the defect, product liability law provides two separate legal doctrines that may be employed to establish fault. The first concept is strict liability. Strict liability relieves the obligation of proving negligence so that the plaintiff only needs to prove that the product was defective when it left the possession of the defendant.

The other legal theory that may be used when it is unclear how a manufacturing defect arose is “res ipsa loquitur.” This Latin phrase literally translates as “the thing speaks for itself.” The legal principle involves shifting the burden of proof to the defendant because in the absence of negligence the defect would not typically exist. If the doctrine can be successfully invoked, it shifts the burden so that the defendants must prove that they were not negligent.

Marketing Defects: Improper labeling, insufficient warnings regarding hazards and faulty instructions all may constitute a form of marketing defect. If the product manufacturer makes a misrepresentation about the product, this also may constitute a marketing defect.

Defenses to liability claims based on product liability law

Many times companies that produce unreasonably dangerous or defective products will defend against product liability claims by arguing that the defendant has not been adequately identified as the manufacturer or distributor of the product. One potential exception to the requirement that you establish the supplier of the product is the “market share” liability theory, which is common to defective pharmaceutical cases. Under this legal theory, a drug company may be held liable according to its percentage of the market for that drug in the particular locality.

Companies that produce defective products also defend these claims based on the modification or misuse of the product. When a product is altered or modified after it has left the control of the defendant, this may provide a defense. Alternatively, the business also may attempt to defend against a product liability claim based on misuse of the product if the misuse was not reasonably foreseeable. Manufacturers of products are expected to anticipate foreseeable misuses of a product.

When you suffer injuries caused by a defective product like traumatic brain injuries, damage to the spinal cord, compound fractures, loss of limbs and other serious injuries, our experienced Tucker personal injury attorneys have a proven track record taking on large corporations that place consumers at danger with their unsafe products.

Tucker Auto Accident Attorneys

Serious auto accidents resulting in critical injuries frequently happen in Tucker due to the negligence of other drivers or other responsible third parties. People suffering injuries requiring emergency medical attention and long-term care as a result of a driver's inattentiveness, bad driving habits or intoxicated condition are compensable based on the legal principle of negligence. If you or a loved one has been involved in such a car accident and suffered injury through no fault of your own, our experienced Tucker auto accident attorneys have the skill and experience to provide competent and effective legal representation to Tucker car accident victims. Our Tucker auto accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates have been fighting insurance companies on behalf of Tucker car accident victims since our law firm was founded in 1984.

Tucker Vehicle Accidents and Negligence

The majority of Tucker auto accident claims that are filed are the direct result of negligence by another driver, public entity, or vehicle component manufacturer. As a legal term, negligence means that someone (the defendant) has caused injury and harm to another (the plaintiff) due to unreasonably careless behavior. Drunk drivers who cause serious accidents represent a classic example of negligent driving behavior. Distracted drivers who insist on texting, fiddling with the radio, or arguing with someone in the car represent another major source of car accident claims in Tucker. Factors indicating an auto accident may have been due to negligent driving include:

  • Speeding and/or violation of traffic regulations
  • Overworked truck drivers falling asleep at the wheel
  • Disobeying traffic signals and stop signs
  • Vans and SUVs experiencing rollover crashes due to defective tires
  • Unsafe lane changes, especially on busy interstates
  • Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or impaired by drugs
  • Aggressive drivers and road rage incidents
  • Disregarding right of way rules
  • Crashing into the back of another automobile because a driver is not paying attention

Injuries incurred as a result of driver negligence may form the basis for compensation that covers all present and future medical bills and pain and suffering as well as compensation for other damages based on the specific circumstances of your accident and precise nature of your loss including:

  • Lost compensation from employment
  • Emotional distress
  • Interference with enjoyment of life experiences
  • Impairment of marital relationship
  • Costs of burial/funeral in wrongful death actions
  • Punitive damages for reckless conduct (certain cases)

Our Tucker auto accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates are skilled in conducting investigations into all types of motor vehicle accidents. Our long tenure representing car accident victims in Tucker car accidents means that we have handled a diverse cross-section of cases involving all types of vehicles and collisions, including but not limited to the following:

  • Head on collisions
  • Accidents involving drunk drivers
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Intersection accidents
  • Multi-car accidents
  • Rear-enders involving distracted drivers
  • Trucking accidents
  • Back up accidents involving children at play
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Single car crashes
  • T-bone collisions involving drivers who run red lights
  • Freeway accidents
  • Run off the road accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Crashed caused by inclement weather and poorly designed or maintained roads
  • Sideswipe accidents resulting from unsafe lane changes

Tucker Auto Accident Attorneys and Insurance Companies

Insurance companies employ a wealth of financial resources and have a stable of accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, and defense attorneys that are experienced in developing strategies for denying and minimizing valid car accident claims. Our dedicated and experienced Tucker car accident lawyers have the expertise and reputation that frequently allows us to negotiate an out-of-court settlement often avoiding the delay associated with trial. We utilize our own experts to effectively combat the tactics of insurance companies aimed at delaying, denying, and minimizing Tucker car accident claims.

Even when liability of the other driver is relatively clear, insurance companies will attempt to dispute the severity and genuineness of the car crash victim’s injuries. Certain types of injuries are easier to quantify as resulting from a collision, such as broken bones, internal organ injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Insurance companies may dispute other types of injuries, including soft tissue injuries, whiplash, concussions, back injuries and other injuries that are harder to quantify. If your involvement in a Tucker car accident has left you incapacitated or in pain or you know someone who has died because of the negligence of a third party, contact our Tucker auto accident attorneys to see how we can help.

Tucker Personal Injury Attorneys

Serious accidents necessitate the services of serious Tucker personal injury attorneys. Our legal strategies at Montlick and Associates are designed to individually suit the unique facts of each client’s circumstances with a commitment toward seeking fair compensation for substantive loss or injury. At Montlick and Associates, we work hard to provide an opportunity for injured Tucker parties to receive compensation for the damages and loss they suffer whether physical injury, emotional distress or fiscal hardships.

Millions of dollars in compensation have been successfully recovered for hundreds upon hundreds of personal injury victims by our experienced Montlick and Associates legal team since our establishment in 1984. Our extensive range of legal experience includes many specialized areas of representation and advocacy including motor vehicle collisions, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, defective products and others.

Tucker Motor Vehicle Accidents: In the U.S., more than ten million motor vehicle accidents are reported annually, as they constitute the most frequently occurring cause of personal injury claims. The enormity of cost related to motor vehicle accidents, including property damage, emergency services, medical expenses, lost productivity and diminished enjoyment of life, exceeds $160 billion per year. Drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, tailgating, unsafe lane changes, or failure to properly regard traffic signals or regulatory signs frequently contribute to serious crashes. Vehicle accident victims often experience extensive injuries. Our competent auto accident attorneys provide effective legal representation to our Tucker car accident victims.

Tucker Comercial Trucking Collisions: Accidents involving these mammoth motor vehicles present particular issues and complexity for the personal injury lawyer and the victims of such accidents. To effectively represent our Tucker personal injury victims in these types of collisions, we rely on an in-depth knowledge of trucking regulations and industry practices. When carrying a full load of cargo, a commercial tractor-trailer may exceed the weight of a passenger vehicle by more than twenty times, greatly intensifying the possible effects, dynamic forces and injuries involved in a collision. These large vehicles are often responsible for catastrophic injuries, and our Tucker commercial trucking accident attorneys seek the compensation victims of such serious injuries need to rebuild their lives.

Tucker Motocycle Accidents: These accidents pose issues associated with severe injuries because riders have little physical protection when they are the victims of careless or inattentive drivers of passenger vehicles. Motorcycles lack crashworthiness so riders face a high risk of being involved in a collision and suffering serious injury. Those who ride motorcycles approximately 25 times more likely to die in a collision with more than half of those fatalities involving at least one other vehicle. Our Tucker motorcycle accident attorneys are committed to providing aggressive advocacy for our motorcycle accident clients.

Tucker Slip and Falls: Many different factors may contribute to Tucker slip and fall injuries, even though falls may appear to be the simplest of accidents. Falls of various kinds are the source of more than one million reported injuries each year in the U.S., and the gravity of injury is underestimated by most accident victims until they personally experience a slip and fall incident. At Montlick and Associates, our skilled Tucker personal injury lawyers possess the experience necessary to investigate and recognize hazards such as uneven flooring, inadequate lighting, unacceptable cleaning methods and other conditions which may heighten the risk of falling accidents.

Tucker Dog Attacks (Dog Bite Claims): The frequency and seriousness of injuries resulting from dog bites is indicated by the enormous volume and value of dog bite homeowner’s insurance claims paid out annually. Each year, nearly 800,000 dog bite injuries sustained are of sufficient severity to require medical treatment, with millions of individuals becoming victims. Recent statistics indicate that over a 15-year period the number of hospitalizations for such injuries has basically doubled. If you have sustained injury as the result of a Tucker dog attack, our experienced Tucker dog bite attorneys consider all potential theories of liability to identify the most effective strategy for our clients.

Tucker Wrongful Death Claims: Families that lose someone close to them because of the careless actions of another should be compensated for the loss of their loved one. Similarly, the victim who passes away has a right to be compensated as if the accident victim had survived. Severe emotional loss and enormous financial hurdles often confront families after losing a family member in a car accident, construction accident, slip and fall or violent crime. Our Tucker wrongful death attorneys are dedicated to seeking the compensation our Tucker clients need in these very difficult situations.

Tucker Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Claims: In the U.S., approximately a million and a half elderly adults live in nursing homes, and the demand on resources needed to care for our elderly loved ones continues to surge as the baby boomer generation ages. In many cases, nursing home facilities may be understaffed or staffed with under-qualified caregivers. If a Tucker nursing home gives precedence to reducing costs and proper care-giving practices over their residents’ well-being and care, the result can be emotional, physical, and monetary abuse or chronic neglect. Our team of Tucker personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates is committed to holding nursing homes accountable for providing the care they have undertaken.

Tucker Construction Site Injuries: While performing their jobs, many thousands of construction workers are injured each year at their job sites. Tucker construction sites are often hazard-filled locations with an overabundance of injury and fatality risks. The source of these injuries may be as diverse as the hazards that cause them , including falls, motor vehicle collisions, heavy machinery accidents, electrocutions and many other types of construction site mishaps. Our Tucker construction site injury attorneys examine all strategies for obtaining the best recovery for our clients including both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.

Tucker Workers’ Compensation Claims: Approximately three million illnesses and nonfatal workplace injuries are reported each year by private employers in many sectors of the economy, such as manufacturing, agricultural, clerical, construction and virtually every other segment of the U.S. workforce. Our experienced Tucker workers’ compensation attorneys are committed to efficiently handling our clients’ workers compensation claims so that they can get back to their daily routine. Because we know that sometimes workers’ compensation is not sufficient to fully compensate our clients, we also explore personal injury claims for our clients in appropriate situations.

Tucker Pedestrian Accidents: With the increased emphasis placed on health issues nationwide, many who live and work in Tucker are venturing out to our city’s streets and roadways as pedestrians. While “hoofing it” may be a popular form of exercise, negligent drivers can cause devastating injuries to Tucker pedestrians. More than 60,000 pedestrians are injured on roadways each year across the country. The human body is not designed to absorb the impact of thousands of pounds of steel so pedestrian accidents can be life-altering events. Our Tucker pedestrian accident attorneys have the experience to anticipate the defenses insurance carriers use when fighting pedestrian accident claims.

Tucker Premises Liability: Tucker owners of commercial property that are operating businesses open to the public have an obligation provide premises in reasonably safe condition or to warn those entering their property for valid purposes of potential unseen hazards. Falling injuries, animal attacks, swimming pool drowning accidents and other sources of injury caused by unsafe conditions on the property of others may necessitate the legal representation of our experienced Tucker premises liability attorneys.

Tucker Defective Products: Product liability law is the area of law that governs the liability of businesses that place dangerous and defective products into the stream of commerce. When a person suffers injury caused by a defective product, the person who experiences injury may have a right to seek financial compensation from any entity in the production change that contributed to the design, construction and marketing of an unsafe product. More manufacturing products are being imported each year placing a growing number of consumers at risk of injury. If you or someone close to you has been injured by a defective product, our experienced team of Tucker product liability attorneys have the resources and experience to fight large corporations that place dangerous products on store shelves.
