If you were involved in an accident that resulted in injury or the loss of someone you love, which was the responsibility of someone else, an experienced Winder personal injury attorney at Montlick and Associates may be able to represent you in obtaining compensation for your loss. At our Winder personal injury law firm we have been providing zealous advocacy to those injured in trucking accidents, auto collisions, motorcycle crashes, construction accidents, slip and falls accidents and defective product accidents since 1984. Because our Winder law practice is focused on personal injury claims, we have the experience, knowledge and expertise to provide persuasive advocacy and aggressive legal representation for our clients. We handle a broad spectrum of personal injuries from life-altering spinal cord and brain injuries to less serious soft tissue injuries and whiplash.
Our law firm is committed to providing individualized attention to the needs of our clients and delivering quality legal services with compassion and empathy. Although our office atmosphere and demeanor may be relaxed and amicable, you should not be misled into believing we are not prepared to be tenacious in pursuing our clients' interests in settlement negotiations or in a courtroom. Because many times the parties that cause serious injury are major corporations, pharmaceutical companies and major insurance companies with political clout, you need a Winder personal injury law firm that does not hesitate to hold defendants accountable for the injuries they cause no matter how large or politically connected. Our track record handling the full gamut of personal injury cases means that we are qualified to represent victims in all types of personal injury cases including the following:
Winder Dog Attack Case (Dog Maulings/Bites): If you or a family member has been the victim of a dog bite or dog attack, it is essential that you understand how Georgia law protects you from irresponsible dog owners that fail to take appropriate measures to prevent injury to unsuspecting victims. If a homeowner fails to comply with state or local law, such as a dog leash ordinance, the homeowner through their homeowner’s insurance must typically compensate a dog bite victim. A dog owner may also be liable if the owner knew or should have known that his or her dog had vicious propensities that could result in the attack of an innocent adult or child. We work hard to prove the negligence of a dog owner so that we can obtain the compensation our clients need to recover from dog attack injuries.
Winder Car Accident Injuries (Motor Vehicle Collisions): Although auto collisions and other motor vehicle crashes comprise the vast majority of personal injury claims, this does not mean that vehicle injury claims are always simple or unsophisticated to resolve. Our experienced Winder car accident attorneys have experience handling all kinds of motor vehicle accident claims, including the following:
- Road departure accidents
- Multi-vehicle accidents
- SUV rollovers
- Motorcycle crashes
- Busing accidents
- Bicycle-car accidents
- Pedestrians hit by vehicles
- Tractor-trailer accidents (trucking accidents)
- Drunk driving crashes
- Crashes caused by distracted drivers
We understand the critical factors that play a role in liability, such as the Georgia rules of the road and the special legal obligations imposed on commercial and public carriers to exercise a higher degree of vigilance to protect those they transport. Our Winder motor vehicle accident attorneys also understand the sophisticated engineering and scientific issues that must be analyzed when pursuing a car accident claim.
Winder Wrongful Death Cases: When you lose a loved one because of the negligent or intentional action of another, you may have the right to pursue a legal claim for wrongful death. A wrongful death case may involve any number of types of accidents resulting in wrongful death including airplane accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, car accidents, semi-truck accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice and other types of accidents caused by wrongful conduct. When you lose someone you love prematurely in an avoidable accident or as a victim of a violent crime, the experience is both profound and heart-wrenching. Our experienced Winder wrongful death attorneys aggressively pursue the full measure of financial recovery for the direct losses suffered by a loved one who dies as well as the damages suffered by the family members that are left behind. We understand that these cases are difficult because of the understandable grief with which a family must contend, but we work diligently to hold those accountable whose careless or intentional misconduct results in the loss of a loved one so that our clients can focus on their emotional recovery.
Winder Workers' Compensation Cases (Construction Accidents and Other On-The-Job Injuries): If the negligent, reckless or otherwise dangerous acts of someone causes you to suffer serious injury at your place of work, it is critical that you immediately pursue a claim for workers' compensation benefits. While the Georgia workers' compensation system is designed to provide a fast, efficient, no-fault remedy for on-the-job injuries, the procedures can be confusing and the timing requirements unforgiving. If your employer’s workers' compensation insurance carrier is not treating your fairly, we may be able to help facilitate obtaining your benefits, such as free medical care, income replacement for the time you are unable to work and even lump sum payments to the extent that you suffer some form of partial or total permanent disability. Our Winder workers' compensation attorneys can assist you with a vast array of injuries and occupational illnesses including construction injuries; neck and back injuries; slip and fall injuries; joint injuries to the knee, shoulder or elbow; repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel; motor vehicle collisions and exposure to asbestos or other toxic chemicals. We may even file a lawsuit against a third party to obtain more extensive damages.
Winder Premises Liability Cases: Premises liability cases are generally the outcome of poor maintenance or hazardous conditions on the premises of someone besides the person suffering injury. Those who own private, public or business premises have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment free from dangerous hazards when the public visits their property. Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are the most typical kind of Winder premises liability accident. A wide range of hazards, including failure to adequately mark changes in elevation, slick flooring, steps in disrepair, uneven flooring and poorly maintained sidewalks may cause dangerous falls resulting in serious injury. Other types of premises liability claims involve businesses like shopping malls, university campuses and hotels that are aware of a pattern of criminal activity but fail to take appropriate security measures to keep patrons safe. Winder premises liability cases can be complex because the extent a property owner is obligated to take steps to protect those who come on their property may vary substantially based on a number of factors. We offer a free initial consultation so we can evaluate a prospective client’s premises liability case.
Winder Product Liability Cases: There are multiple reasons that products marketed to consumers may injure unsuspecting consumers. Products may be based on faulty designs or engineering. In other cases, unsafe products may be the result of sub-standard manufacturing processes of insufficient quality control or product testing. When consumers suffer injuries or wrongful death while using a product in the way it was intended, the maker of the product should be held accountable and discouraged from cutting corners in the future. Our Winder product liability lawyers handle many types of claims regarding defective products including poorly designed SUVs that are prone to rollover accidents, defective drugs or medical devices, faulty consumer electronics and unsafe products for children. Product liability cases frequently entail taking on large corporations so you should have a law firm with almost three decades of success in injury cases behind you.
