Villa Rica Personal Injury Attorneys

When you or a close family member is the victim of the unreasonably careless or intentional misconduct of a third party, the emotional, physical and fiscal obstacles created by a severe accident can turn an injury victim and his or her family's life upside down. Our committed and experienced Villa Rica personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates have been fighting to achieve justice and financial compensation for personal injury victims involved in car accidents, slip and falls on wet floors, defective product accidents, semi-truck collisions, medical malpractice and many other types of personal injury cases. Because we have represented hundreds upon hundreds of personal injury victims since our Villa Rica personal injury law firm was founded in 1984, we bring proven results and experience to the negotiation and litigation of personal injury claims. Our experienced Villa Rica personal injury attorneys handle the full spectrum of personal injury claims, including the following:

Villa Rica Dog Bites (Attacking Dogs): Dog owners under Georgia law are required to comply with laws governing proper restraint of a dog in a yard or on a leash. When these statutes or local ordinances are violated, they may provide a basis for imposing liability on a dog owner. Owners who know or based on past behavior of their dog should know that their dog has the potential to be vicious may also be financially liable for injuries caused by their dog. Dog attacks are one of the most common types of personal injury cases often resulting in severe physical and emotional trauma. Our dedicated Villa Rica dog bite attorneys believe that dog owners that decide to own dogs that have a history of aggressiveness or that otherwise fail to act responsibly to protect others from their dog should bear the cost of their decision to undertake such a risk.

Villa Rica Auto Accident Claims (Motor Vehicle Crashes): While motor vehicle accident claims of all variety are the most prevalent type of personal injury claim, they are often complex to litigate. The issues involved in the settlement or litigation of a Villa Rica auto accident claim requires consideration of the types of vehicles, causes that contributed to the accident, extent of the injuries and other factors. Our Villa Rica auto accident attorneys handle all types of vehicle collision claims, including motorcycle accidents, multi-car pileups, rollover crashes, drunk driving collisions, pedestrian accidents, bicycle-car collisions, accidents involving cell phones or other distractions and many other types of motor vehicle accident claims.

Villa Rica Wrongful Deaths: There are many types of unsafe behavior that may cause the wrongful death of your loved one, like motor vehicle accident claims, construction or industrial accidents, medical errors, defective products including faulty medical devices and other forms of negligent conduct. When you lose someone you love because someone failed to exercise reasonable caution or a company decided to sacrifice safety to save a few pennies, the emotional pain can be overwhelming. While financial issues may not be your first concern, accidents where a family member dies impose severe financial issues for many families. The costs of medical bills, hospital expenses, lost wages and memorial/burial services must be covered. Further, the family may be left without a valuable contributor to the family's household income. Our Villa Rica wrongful death attorneys work diligently to assist our clients in seeking the financial compensation they deserve when they are forced to endure the loss of someone they love.

Villa Rica Workers' Compensation (Construction Accidents – Industrial Accidents): While employers have an obligation to provide a safe workplace, workplace accidents are an unavoidable reality in virtually every industry, including but not limited to manufacturing, agriculture, construction, administrative and all other occupations. Whether you suffer an occupational illness from exposure to hazardous substances like toxic chemicals or asbestos or a physical injury from a motor vehicle accident, heavy machinery accident or fall from a scaffolding, our experienced Villa Rica workers' compensation attorneys help our clients navigate the potential pitfalls and procedural obstacles involved in successfully pursuing a workers' compensation case. Because the amount of recovery is relatively limited in workers' compensation cases, our Villa Rica law firm may explore the feasibility of not only pursuing a claim for workers' compensation benefits but also filing a lawsuit against a third party who may have also been involved in causing your injuries.

Villa Rica Premises Liability: The law of premises liability defines the scope and nature of a property owner's obligation to protect those who come on their premises from hazards and unsafe conditions. Commercial businesses, such as shopping centers, grocery stores and other businesses that make their business open to the public typically have the highest obligation toward those who come on their property. The obligation imposed on the owner of premises can range from a substantial obligation to make the property safe from manmade hazards to simply avoiding gross negligence. The highest standard of care is usually applicable to businesses that are open to the public while the lowest standard of care is more often applicable to trespassers on residential properties. However, child trespassers may receive more protection from certain types of hazards that are typically appealing to children but may pose risks that may not be readily apparent to a child. The complex matrix of liability rules that apply in premises liability cases makes it imperative to have an experienced Villa Rica premises liability attorney analyze and evaluate your individual case.

Villa Rica Defective Products: It is relatively rare that a dangerous or defective product will present risks of serious injury that are obvious to a consumer. Because the company that manufactures a product and markets it to the public is in the best position to prevent product defects or provide proper warning regarding potential hazards, product liability law often holds product manufacturers liable on a strict liability (liability without fault) basis. Sometimes defective products occur because of design or manufacturing problems whereas in other situations they are the result of a conscious decision to disregard safety issues to increase profits. If you or someone you love is injured by an unsafe or defective product, Montlick and Associates draws on almost three decades of experience when challenging mega-corporations that have produced a product which causes serious injury or lose of life.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one has died, our experienced Villa Rica personal injury lawyers are committed to representing personal injury and wrongful death victims in obtaining compensation to rebuild their lives and support their families.

Villa Rica Auto Accident Attorneys

Although drivers in Villa Rica might see more traffic and congestion, especially during rush hour, less populated areas may have drivers travel at much higher speeds, which increases the likelihood of accidents and fatalities. If you get into a car accident in Villa Rica or surrounding areas that result in serious injuries or wrongful death, you should know that these injuries can mean a long physical, emotional and financial recovery time. Many people who have been involved in car accidents in the Villa Rica area have lost their jobs, cars, homes or other assets when they could have saved themselves these financial losses and heartache if they had hired a qualified Villa Rica car accident lawyer right after their accident.

What can a Villa Rica car accident lawyer do for you? A lawyer who specializes in car accidents understands the hardships that result from car accidents and will immediately go to work for you to seek the financial compensation that you may be due after your Villa Rica car accident. These funds can be used for potential medical care, therapy, rehabilitation and a high quality of life. Our experienced Villa Rica auto accident attorneys possess both the case experience and extensive financial resources to help pursue the financial compensation that is due you.

If you’ve been in a serious car accident in the Villa Rica area and have not sought out legal representation yet, time is of the essence in retaining legal services because insurance companies have been known to exploit people without legal representation. This can mean mistakes that result in losing one’s rights to any compensation that may have been justified by your injuries. Sadly, some insurance companies are well known for using unethical or unfair tactics and strategies to reduce the number and amount of auto accident claims. Some of the tactics that these unscrupulous insurance companies use may include:

  • Delaying Tactics: Insurance company representatives are savvy; they understand that victims of serious car accidents will most often be facing high medical bills and also the loss of income. They often exploit those hardships by prolonging the car accident settlement until the financial strain and pressure becomes so great that the Villa Rica car accident victim will be left with no other choice but to settle his or her accident claim for a lot less than expected.
  • Release of Liability: Another strategy that insurance companies have been known to use is to ask a car accident victim to sign a release of liability with a very small settlement that does not begin to cover the accident victim's injuries and rehabilitation that will be needed after the car accident. One of the biggest problems that come with signing a release of liability form is that accident victims may have no idea that they are signing away potential claims to other injuries, which they may not even be aware resulted from the Villa Rica car accident.
  • Misrepresentation: Insurance company adjusters also have been known to contact car accident victims to get “their side of the story” so they can help to settle the accident victim’s claim. Many car accident victims who have been involved in car accidents within the Villa Rica area will not hesitate to tell an adjuster what happened in the accident, but the reality is that their statement can be used against them to minimize or even deny their claim. Car accident victims should never disclose the details of their car accident with an insurance company adjuster before they obtain the advice of a highly skilled Villa Rica car accident lawyer. By consulting with a Villa Rica car accident lawyer first, the accident victim can avoid making a disclosure based on feelings of sadness or guilt about being involved in a collision.
  • Taking Advantage of Ignorance: Many adjusters who work for major insurance companies take advantage of a car accident victim’s ignorance regarding the value of an auto accident claim. Anyone who has been involved in a Villa Rica area car accident should consult with a qualified Villa Rica car accident lawyer to avoid getting taken advantage of by a crafty insurance company adjuster. Experienced insurance adjusters may employ persuasive arguments to convince you that your car accident claim is not worth much. Even if a car accident victim is involved in a low impact car accident, which resulted in a whiplash injury, that injury could cause serious pain that can debilitate an accident victim for months.
  • Statute of Limitations: Any car accident claim in Villa Rica generally must be filed within two years in most situations; this time period is known as the “Statute of Limitations. The calculation of this time limit can be complicated, and sometimes there are even shorter deadlines so it is important not to delay in seeking legal advice. Insurance company adjusters have been known to drag out communications or negotiations so that the accident victim fails to comply with the statute of limitations. A Villa Rica car accident lawyer will pay careful attention to mandatory timing deadlines.

These examples are just a few cases of unfair insurance company tactics that an experienced Villa Rica car accident lawyer can help you to avoid. When you hire a skilled car accident attorney, you can also have confidence that you will be protected if you were involved in any of these types of accidents:

  • Accidents due to distractions while driving
  • Drivers that are intoxicated or under the influence of illegal or legal drugs
  • A car accident involving a bicycle
  • Car accidents resulting from not keeping up with vehicle maintenance
  • Violations of traffic safety laws that prohibit tailgating, speeding, running red lights, talking on a cell phone, or aggressive driving
  • Collisions caused by unlicensed drivers
  • Tractor-trailer or motorcycle accidents
  • Failure to modify your driving due to weather conditions
  • Accidents involving a commuter bus, school bus or other public transportation service

Car accidents happen for all types of reasons in Villa Rica, especially when drivers are inconsiderate, unsafe or not attentive, and these accidents can result in severe injuries that can be debilitating. If you have been involved in a Villa Rica car accident, you owe it to yourself to hire a Villa Rica car accident lawyer because they may be able to seek compensation to cover:

  • Lost income, salary or wages
  • Any future loss of your income that is a result of your car accident
  • All expenses that are related to your medical care, potential hospitalization or on-going treatment
  • Damages that are due you for pain, emotional distress or suffering
  • Impairment of your life’s enjoyments including damage to your marriage
