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.
