Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys, Montlick & Associates, Reviews Common Problems; Offers Tips When Filing Auto Accident Claims

Handling an insurance claim after an accident is not always as easy and straightforward as people might expect. That’s why the Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys from Montlick & Associates created the video posted at the top of this page, to help people get through the insurance company’s accident claims process more easily and successfully.

“One of the most common problems that people face when dealing with the insurance company after an accident, is that the insurance company may try to shift the blame to them”, says Jacquie Palisi, Family Safety Advocate from Montlick & Associates. “For example, they might argue that the innocent driver was speeding – or in the case of a serious slip and fall they might say you were simply not paying attention. Insurance companies may use that tactic to offer you a low settlement – or they might deny your claim completely.”

But according to Palisi, the firm’s experienced Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys often find that it was not the injured person’s fault, and that there were other factors or parties responsible for the accident. For example, in one recent case from the firm, the insurance company tried to argue that the firm’s client lost control of their car. The Montlick & Associates attorneys proved the insurance company was wrong and the case resolved for $275,000. In another recent case, the client was given the ticket, but the firm’s lawyers proved that the police were wrong, and that someone else caused the accident. In that case, the firm’s client received a settlement of more than one million dollars.

The examples above are just a few of the reasons why people should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after an accident, and why having an experienced and caring attorney on your side can make all the difference.
