Personal Injury Practice Areas
The personal injury attorneys at the law firm of Ryan Montgomery help people receive fair and just compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness in a variety of situations.
Car and Truck Accidents
Automobile accidents are among the most common personal injury cases in the US. There were as many as 600,000 in 2015. Accidents may occur when a driver is inattentive or driving recklessly in violation of most state laws. A personal injury lawyer will investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and attempt to get fair compensation for the injured party. The attorneys at the law firm of Ryan Montgomery have more than 10 years of experience helping injured auto accident and trucking accident victims in upstate and midland South Carolina. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident, do not deal with the insurance company, or companies, alone. Our car accident attorneys will take steps to ensure you are compensated for your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.
Another common type of personal injury case is the premises liability or “slip and fall” case. Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, is committed to helping those who have been injured on the property of another. Property owners and business owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment. A person can sue a property owner under premises liability law when he or she is injured on the property due to the property owner’s negligence. Take the example of someone leaving a spill on the floor of a grocery store. Usually, an employee of the store won’t face personal liability; however, an attorney may sue the business and seek compensation from them. The personal injury lawyers at our firm have several decades of combined experience in helping those who have been injured at work and while on another’s property.
When a company doesn’t take proper care in manufacturing and puts faulty, dangerous products into the market, they risk a product liability lawsuit. Take for example, a faulty air bag system could have contributed to the injury suffered by the plaintiff. The air bag manufacturer, the automaker and the at-fault driver could all have some liability. Product liability cases also include warning labels that don’t properly warn consumers about dangerous side-effects or potential allergens in their products. Some product liability cases become class action lawsuits if a large number of people have suffered the same injury.
Injuries while working happen frequently. Our Workers’ compensation lawyers can assist with matters arising out of workplace injuries — including back and spine injuries and construction-related accidents. There is a system in place, supported by the government, that is supposed to prevent an adversarial relationship from developing between employer and employee when an employee is injured. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system in South Carolina. Doctor reports provide the basis for compensation rather than a liability lawsuit. We understand the challenges you face after a workplace injury and can answer all of your Workers’ Compensation questions. We also have answers about what you need to do should you get hurt on the job.
Sadly, recklessness or gross negligence may cause someone’s death. A lawyer at our firm can help the family of the decedent receive compensation for their loss, the lost wages, suffering and burial expenses. Wrongful death suits may follow a criminal trial such as a manslaughter case involving a drunk driver.
