Serving Product Liability Victims Nationwide

Standing Up For Your Rights, Standing Up For Your Justice.

Everyday, we use products that promise to make our lives simpler and better. Unfortunately, there are times when products and companies fail to deliver on their promise, causing us harm rather than easing our lives.

We rely on manufacturers and companies to design, build, and distribute safe and functional products that work as intended and do not pose risks to our safety or health. However, companies do not always uphold the standards imposed upon them by the law, and when people become severely ill or injured because of the use of a defective product, they deserve compensation for their damages. According to a recent Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Annual Report, each year thousands of individuals are killed by various products and millions more suffer injuries requiring emergency room treatment. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product, the time to call Montlick is now.

Don’t wait. Call Montlick today for more advice from our experienced product liability attorneys.

October 2022, I was injured on my part time job. I hurt my back and was in a lot of pain. I called Montlick And Associates and was directed to attorney Jeffrey Kowalski and his paralegal Christopher Phillips they were awesome they fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved. I received phone calls from them asking me how was I feeling and if I needed anything. Excellent law firm I would definitely use them again 👍. Cherry Nesbit

I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy & Cate at Montlick, and I can't recommend them enough! From the moment I reached out for a consultation to the resolution of my case, the team displayed utmost professionalism, empathy, and expertise. Every question was answered promptly, and I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and dedication to my case was evident, and it truly felt like they went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. It's clear that this firm not only has a deep understanding of the law but also a genuine commitment to their clients' well-being. If you're in need of legal assistance in Georgia , Montlick & associates should be your first call. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their exceptional service!

I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.

Both Sarah Root (attorney) and Chris Gladys (legal assistant) were great with communicating and advising as they worked through my case. One, if not both, checked in and explained things at every step of the entire process. They were not only great at explaining what was going on, options, and the legality of every step and choice, but always friendly and professional. I greatly appreciate the guidance, and effort they put into my case.

Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.

The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.
Charming Caregivers and Homemakers
If you or your love ones ever need an accident attorney, I recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys. Nick and his team were great, and was very attentive to my son’s needs. Nick worked hard to get my son a nice settlement to get back on his feet after his traumatic accident. We are are ever so grateful!

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.
Korey Petersen
Honestly, at the first moment I wasn't going to go with Montlick & Associates, I was with another lawyer that didn't put my needs 1st 😒, I said ha forget that I'm going with Montlick Law Firm and I called and the first thing the Associate said is how you doing 😊 it made me feel so comfortable with them, I didn't have to do anything they handled all the work and made sure they took care of me in the end. I'm happy and will just say that you would be too if you decided to go with Montlick law firm!! #MontlickLawFirm #JusticeServed #ClientLove

I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Angel Perkins
Alyssa and Antonia was very professional and helpful when working on my case I highly suggest this law firm.
Kelly Merre
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.
Leslie House
I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.

Montlick Injury Attorneys (Scott M. Patterson) and Staff (Sarah / Tamia) were very professional, thoughtful, caring, transparent, and work extremely hard to reach the best injury settlement outcome for our case. Thank you!
Earnest
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.

Strong, Dedicated, Compassionate. That's Montlick.

The law provides that manufacturers of dangerous and defective products should be held accountable if they release a poorly designed or manufactured product into the stream of commerce. Unfortunately, companies are generally driven by pursuing a “bottom line” and many manufacturers whose defective products cause injuries do not take responsibility. If you have been injured due to a product liability, you can take legal action against the manufacturer of the product under the legal doctrines of strict liability or general negligence. The difference between strict liability and general negligence are:

  • In a strict liability claim (when state law allows), the consumer is not required to show that the manufacturer acted negligently in designing, manufacturing and/or creating warnings about the dangers of the product. Rather, the focus of the claim is on the product itself and the defective and/or dangerous nature of the product. Specifically, a plaintiff must prove that the product left the hands of the manufacturer or seller in a defective state, as opposed to having to prove how or why the product came to be defective.
  • Alternatively, in a negligence claim, the consumer alleges that the manufacturer acted below a reasonable standard of care in designing or manufacturing a dangerous product. Often, negligence claims against manufacturers may include failing to provide adequate warnings about the dangers of a particular product.

Products liability claims can arise from the use of many different types of consumer goods, including:

Manufacturers stand to lose hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of dollars if they are forced to pay compensation to consumers hurt by their products. This is why manufacturers may attempt to defeat an injured consumer’s claim by arguing that the consumer did pay attention to warning labels that were present on the product or used the product in a way that it was not designed to be used (such as taking too high of a dose of an over-the-counter medication or operating heavy machinery while intoxicated). A manufacturer may argue that the consumer made modifications or alterations to its product after purchasing the product, thereby voiding any warranty and eliminating any responsibility on the manufacturer’s part for any resulting injuries.

If these arguments are successful in your case, your financial recovery may be limited or denied altogether. For this reason, it is extremely important that you be represented by a formidable product liability attorney who can take on the experienced and well-funded legal teams that represent these manufacturers.

How Much Compensation Can I Get for a Product Liability Case? 

The general rule is that an injured consumer can receive financial compensation (called damages) for any tangible or intangible loss experienced provided that (1) the consumer can provide evidence as to the value of the loss; and (2) that the loss is causally connected to the defective product. However, no two product liability cases are the same. Even when two consumers each file separate lawsuits based upon the injuries each received from the same defective product, the consumers might walk away with different amounts of compensation.

In any product liability injury case, our attorneys pursue all types of monetary damages that our clients are entitled to recover. Depending on the facts of a case and the applicable law, these may include compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive or “Penalty” Damages if the defendant manufacturer’s conduct is egregious, such as when a it releases a product that it knows is dangerous (subject to state law)
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress

Predicting the precise amount of compensation any consumer will receive through a product liability case is usually not possible at the beginning of a case. To obtain a possible estimate as to what your case is worth, you need to sit down with an experienced product liability attorney and go over the facts of your case, the evidence that’s available to you, the applicable law, and the specifics and peculiarities of filing and pursuing a product liability claim in your jurisdiction. Later in our clients’ cases, we are able to predict a range in case value after all of the evidence has been obtained, we have reviewed all medical bills and records, and have learned the nature, extent and long-term effects of the injury. Trust Montlick to make every effort to obtain the greatest amount of compensation possible for you in your case.

The facts of your specific case and whether you accept a settlement or take your case to trial can affect the amount of damages you are able to obtain. In addition, the strength and persuasiveness of any evidence you might provide as to the extent of your injuries and other important details will also play a role in determining what your product liability case is worth.

The most common arguments made against injured consumers in products liability claims is that the consumer is responsible for his or her injuries in some way. For example, a manufacturer may allege that the injured person did not use the product as intended or did not follow instructions. Depending on the state in which the claim is filed, negligence can result in disproportionately different outcomes. In most states, ones that abide by the Legal Doctrine of Comparative Negligence, an injured consumer can still be entitled to recover compensation from a manufacturer even if the consumer acted carelessly by not reading warning labels and instructions for the product or not using the product as it was intended. In such scenarios, the victim’s recovery is reduced by their relative degree of negligence. For instance, in a jury deems the injured consumer 20% at fault, the injured consumer would receive 80% of their damages. Many states apply a doctrine called Modified Comparative Negligence, which only allows the plaintiff to financially recover compensation if they are less than 50% at fault.

Alternatively, in a Contributory Negligence state, if the Plaintiff is in any way at fault, even a mere 1%, they can be barred from seeking a recovery. Speak with one of our attorneys about the laws in your specific jurisdiction.

Take Action Now to Safeguard Your and Your Family’s Legal Rights – Watch Out for Legal Time Deadlines!

We caution you about the risks of waiting too long before seeking legal help for your product liability case. Each state places a limit on the amount of time that can pass between when an injury occurred and how much time a person has to settle a claim or file a lawsuit, if legally necessary. This time limit is codified in a state’s statute of limitations and other important doctrines or laws that may vary depending on the jurisdiction in which your claim exists. Our attorneys can advise you on what deadlines may apply to your case.

Statutes of limitations aside, waiting too long to file a product liability case means that important evidence in your case – such as: witnesses, witness recollection, evidence at the scene, video footage and so on – may be lost or at least difficult and costly to recover. Do not handicap your legal rights: take action now to protect your rights by contacting our office to discuss your claim.

Missteps Can Be Costly: How Your Product Liability Attorney Helps Protect Your Legal Rights

Large corporations and insurance companies do everything they can to deny or minimize claims of injured victims. Additionally, companies often resist resolving products liability claims because they fear that doing so could encourage other consumers with similar injuries and claims to come forward and seek compensation as well. As a result, product manufacturers typically have both in-house legal teams and contracts with experienced and resourceful law firms to defend against claims made by consumers. This puts any injured consumer going up against a product manufacturer at a distinct disadvantage.

Consumers can even the playing field by having their own experienced and resourceful law firm at their side. At Montlick Injury Associates, we have represented consumers hurt by using a variety of defective products. We strive to achieve knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated legal representation – at each step along the way.
