Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can be one of the most horrifying incidents a person can experience, and unfortunately, the difficulties resulting from an accident can travel well past the actual day of the crash.

In many states, there are limits on monetary recovery that only a highly qualified and experienced car accident lawyer  can navigate.

  • Were impartial witnesses present?
  • Is there evidence that only experts would be able to uncover?

Springfield Serious Injury Lawyer

When an individual suffers a serious or catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another, it is crucial to hire an injury attorney with years of experience. A successful outcome in the courtroom relies heavily on choosing the best representation.

Premises Liability Attorney

If you are injured on someone else’s property contact one of our Springfield premises liability attorneys.  There is a common misconception that if one is injured on another’s premises, the landowner is automatically held at fault for the injuries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is often much more complicated, as a property owner is only liable for injuries on the premises when he knows of a danger and does not exercise due care to fix whatever danger exists or fails to provide a warning that the danger is present. Under certain circumstances, a landowner may be found responsible for an injury when he simply should have known that it exists.

The level of protection provided for entrants to the land depends highly on the status of the injured party. Were they a welcome guest, such as a customer at a store? Or were they trespassing on land that the owner did not expect any individuals to enter? These circumstances can greatly impact any attempt at recovering for injured parties.

Cases that a landowner could be found at fault for often include neglecting upkeep for their properly or a lack of care for the safety of visitors. Common cases of negligence include:

  • Bar/Lounge Liability
  • Dangerous Premises
  • Slip and Fall
  • Defective Premises
  • Dramshop Litigation
  • Intentional Shootings
  • Toxic Exposure
  • Electrocution
  • Negligent Employees
  • Negligent Security
  • Premises Assault
  • Property Defects

Property owners have a legal obligation to care for the safety of their visitors. Monsees & Mayer P.C.’s Springfield premises liability lawyers are confident in bringing claims against shopping malls, large retailers and manufacturers, grocery stores, restaurants, apartment complexes, and construction companies, as well as homeowners and local municipalities.

Product Liability Lawyer

Product liability is a very complex and specialized area of law. The term “dangerous products” refers to any type of product that has a high likelihood or risk of injuring users. A product can be considered dangerous through inherent use, such as firearms, but some products are seemingly safe under most conditions and are made dangerous through modification. Product liability law, as a result, is the means by which a consumer can obtain compensation for injuries suffered through the dangers of a product. Generally speaking, product liability cases fall into one of three categories:

  • Defective Design: The product’s design is inherently dangerous, making it defective and unsafe for consumers.
  • Defective Manufacture: The product was designed to be safe, but through faulty manufacturing may be dangerous to consumers. This may be as widespread as entire batches of products, or as specialized as a single faulty product.
  • Defective Warnings or Instructions: The product is designed and manufactured to be safe, but through negligent instructions or warnings included with the product, may be unsafe for consumers.

Challenges for Dangerous Product Cases

Laws surrounding dangerous products require expertise and experience from your attorney. This type of case often requires the compensation of engineers who can testify on your behalf to prove defective design, manufacturing, or incomplete product warnings. Having an attorney who can prove this negligence is crucial in proving your case.

The Springfield product liability lawyers of Monsees & Mayer P.C. have years of experience and extensive connections to experts who can help in proving your case. Contact us today for a free consultation regarding your defective product injuries.
