We are committed to providing effective negotiation and persuasive advocacy in pursuing the best possible settlement or verdict for our Savannah personal injury clients. During our long tenure representing Savannah injury victims, we have handled a staggering variety of personal injury cases, but some of the most common Savannah personal injury claims our firm handles includes the following:
Savannah Auto Accidents: While there are many forms of negligent conduct, which in simple terms is “unreasonably careless conduct”, the most common cause of personal injury claims is motor vehicle accidents involving cars, big-rigs, SUVs, 15-passenger vans, buses, bicycles, pedestrians and any other type of motor vehicle. Savannah auto accidents are the leading cause of accident related injury and wrongful death. Motor vehicle accidents may be caused by many types of unsafe conduct but some of the most common driving practices that lead to Savannah auto accidents are speeding, tailgating, distracted driving, drunk driving, stoplight running and unsafe lane changes. A Savannah motor vehicle accident victim will often suffer severe injuries which may cause enormous financial obstacles and entail significant medical treatment. Our Savannah auto accident attorneys can handle our clients’ insurance and legal issues so that they can focus on their physical recovery.
Savannah Slip & Falls/Trip & Falls: Many people have no idea how serious injuries suffered in a Savannah slip and fall accident can be until it happens to them. When you are patronizing a Savannah business, it is reasonable to expect that the proprietor of the business will conduct reasonable inspections for potential hazards and either warn patrons of dangers that may not be readily apparent or correct the hazardous condition. Our Savannah slip and fall attorneys have the experience to investigate and identify hazards like uneven flooring, improper lighting and other hazards that may increase the risk of a Savannah slip and fall accident so contact us today.
Savannah Truck Accident Claims:: Tractor-trailers may weigh 80,000 pounds when transporting a full load, which may be more than 25 times the weight of a passenger car. This vast difference in the size and weight of vehicles in a Savannah trucking accidents can mean life-changing injuries and a high risk of wrongful death. While the intrastate and interstate trucking industries are heavily regulated, trucking companies sometimes cut corners and disregard safety regulations in the pursuit of increased revenue. Effective legal representation in Savannah tractor-trailer accidents requires extensive knowledge of trucking regulations and industry practices. Our Savannah trucking accident lawyers are well aware of the practices used by trucking companies to avoid liability for injuries caused by their drivers. If you are injured by an improperly screened, trained or supervised driver, our experienced Savannah truck accident attorneys seek the best possible outcome for our clients.
Savannah Motorcycle Accidents: While all motor vehicle accidents may result in severe injury, motorcyclists have no physical protection in a collision, and motorcycles are far less stable than other types of vehicles. Fatality rates are much higher when a motorcycle is involved in a collision. Because Savannah motorcycle accidents often result in devastating injuries that require long-term rehabilitative care, our Savannah motorcycle accident attorneys seek the full measure of compensation possible when pursuing motorcycle injury settlements and lawsuits.
Savannah Dog Attacks (Dog Bite Claims): Millions of people are bitten in dog attacks each year with almost 800,000 of those victims suffering dog attack injuries severe enough to require medical treatment. The massive number of dog bite victims and seriousness of dog bite injuries are reflected in the fact that dog bite injuries account for nearly a billion dollars a year in insurance claims. If you are injured because a property owner chooses to keep a hostile and aggressive dog or fails to restrain their dog on a leash or behind a fence, our Savannah dog attack lawyers have obtained compensation for dog mauling victims who have suffered serious injury including reconstructive surgery.
Savannah Wrongful Death Claims: When you lose someone you love in a motor vehicle accident, construction accident or other serious accident, you may face intense emotional loss and financial burdens. It is a fundamental principle of law that victims of injury caused by unsafe or intentional misconduct of others should be compensated even if they die as a result of their injuries. Wrongful death actions can provide compensation that accident victims would have received had they survived the injuries caused by a third party. A Savannah wrongful death claim action may also provide compensation to family members for their own losses incurred because a loved one is prematurely taken from them. Our Savannah wrongful death legal team understands the challenge families face when they lose someone they love, and we are committed to pursuing the compensation that our clients need.
Savannah Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Claims: As baby boomers age, the strain on resources to care for our elderly loved ones continues to increase. Many nursing homes are already understaffed or staffed with under-qualified employees. When Savannah nursing homes put cutting cost above resident care, the result can be physical, emotional and financial abuse or chronic neglect. Our Savannah nursing home attorneys are committed to holding nursing homes accountable for providing the care that they have promised to provide. If your vulnerable loved one has been injured by nursing home abuse and neglect, we invite you to contact our Savannah nursing home abuse law firm to see how we can help.
Savannah Construction Site Injuries (Construction Accidents): Savannah construction sites are dangerous workplaces filled with many injury risks including falls from ladders, roofs and scaffoldings; accidents involving heavy machinery including backhoes, excavators, cranes, booms and front-end loaders; injuries caused by electrocution or fire; and exposure to hazardous substances. Construction accident claims pose unique issues including identifying viable defendants for personal injury claims and preventing critical evidence from disappearing from Savannah construction projects which may be in massive flux. Our Savannah construction accident attorneys understand the unique obstacles that must be navigated to effectively pursue a Savannah construction accident claim.
Savannah Workers’ Compensation Claims: When an employee suffers a workplace injury, it can result in disability from employment and the need for significant medical care. A workers’ compensation claim in Savannah generally provides a no-fault basis for seeking compensation for workplace injuries. While the system does not require you to prove the negligence of your employer, it also fails to provide certain important damages that may be available in a personal injury claim, such as pain and suffering, impaired quality of life and punitive damages. Our Savannah workers’ compensation attorneys at Montlick and Associates often pursue both a personal injury claim against a third party and a workers’ compensation claim against our client’s employer because it may provide the broadest scope of recovery.
Savannah Pedestrian Accidents: The growing concern over health issues has prompted many people to walk, jog and run when negotiating the streets and roads of Savannah. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who fail to pay attention or drive safely and cause serious injury to unsuspecting pedestrians. Because pedestrians have no protection when they are struck by a motor vehicle, “minor” pedestrian accidents are rare. If you suffer the type of life-altering injuries that are common in a pedestrian collision, our experienced Savannah pedestrian accident attorneys aggressively oppose insurance company tactics like trying to shift the responsibility for a Savannah pedestrian accident to the victim.
Savannah Premises Liability: Property owners have an obligation to keep their property reasonably safe for those who come on their property for legitimate reasons or to warn of potential hidden dangers. Our experienced premises liability lawyers are committed to providing effective legal advice and representation to those injured by dangerous conditions on the premises of others including animal attacks, trips and falls, failure to provide adequate security and other injuries caused by unsafe conditions on the property of others.
Savannah Defective Products (Product Liability): When companies sell products to Savannah consumers, they have a legal obligation to design, produce and market safe products that do not pose dangers to consumers who purchase their products when used as intended. Despite this obligation, many defective products sold by Savannah retailers cause significant injuries to unsuspecting consumers. If you have been injured by a product because of substandard workmanship, poor design or marketing/instructions that do not provide adequate instructions or warning of potential risks, our experienced Savannah product liability attorneys may be able to pursue a product liability claim against anyone in the production or distribution chain. Our Savannah defective product law firm is committed to holding companies accountable that endanger the public with unsafe products including defective medical devices, bad drugs, faulty consumer electronics, hazardous children’s toys and other unsafe consumer products.
