The Top Four Reasons People Choose Montlick & Associates:
- Our attorneys work hard to maximize the value of each of our clients’ cases under the applicable law.Initially following any incident caused by someone else’s negligence, you do not know the full nature and extent of your injuries. Insurance companies know this and commonly will attempt to offer compensation early, before you obtain legal advice or know the severity of your injury. They will also attempt a “low-ball” offer. Once your case is settled, it can never be reopened, even if you realize that your injury is much more serious later. Montlick & Associates fights hard on behalf of each client in order to obtain the maximum compensation to which they are entitled under the law, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, disability, Pain and Suffering, punitive damages depending on the egregiousness of the defendant’s conduct, and more.
- Montlick & Associates is a client-driven firm. Since 1984 we have been dedicated to our goal of providing exceptional service to each and every client. We stay in touch with our clients on a regular basis, and keep them fully informed of all important developments.
- Our practice is limited to personal injury law. We believe that we our attorneys can do the best job possible by focusing on one area of the law. We only represent injured people, never insurance companies or corporations.
- Our Experience Pays! Our firm has been helping injured people and their families recover the compensation they deserve for over 35 years, and our attorneys have recovered billions of dollars for our clients.*

Why Having an Attorney Makes a Difference to Injury Victims:
Insurance companies do not want you to have an attorney. Their goal, as for-profit businesses, is to make as much money as possible, and they do this by denying or minimizing the amount that they pay you for your claim with their trained adjusters and representatives. Although Alabama law does not require that you retain an attorney to pursue legal compensation, representation by an experienced personal injury attorney can significantly improve your prospects of success and the amount of your settlement or judgement. A study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) revealed that injured individuals with legal representation generally receive substantially larger financial recoveries than unrepresented parties.
That insurance industry study found that 85 percent of payouts from insurance companies went to injured individuals represented by a lawyer. The study also revealed that injury victims with attorneys, on average, received 300 percent more than those without legal representation (i.e. a car accident victim would on average increase his or her recovery from $100,000 to $300,000 by hiring an experienced personal injury attorney.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help Alabama Injury Victims
We Get to Work Fast! Once we advise you of your legal rights, our legal team will get to work taking steps necessary to protect your rights. We worry about the legal issues, so that you can focus on taking care of your health and getting well, as well as your family.
We Assume the Financial Risk: We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This attorney fee arrangement means that clients only owe attorney fees if we obtain a negotiated settlement agreement with the insurance company, or a judgment or verdict, against the person or company responsible for the injury.
Assessing Your Claim Value: Evaluation of an injury claim involves not only the calculation of lost wages, medical bills, and vehicle repair costs but also more difficult-to-value components like pain and suffering, mental anguish, diminished earning capacity, and punitive damages. Along with analyzing these intangible forms of damages, many other factors must be considered, such as the impact on the plaintiff’s quality of life, the wrongfulness of the defendant’s conduct, the perception of the parties, the applicable law and jurisdiction and many other relevant concerns. Our attorneys have experience determining the value of cases that involve a broad range of accidents and injuries. When appropriate, we also conduct research into verdicts and settlements involving similar cases.
Overcoming Insurance Company Traps: Insurance company representatives might seem initially cooperative, but their objective is to protect the financial interests of their policy holders and to increase their profits, which is directly adversarial to your interests. Insurance companies handle an enormous number of claims annually, and they have developed effective strategies to minimize, or even deny financial payouts. Many people who deal directly with the other party’s insurance company in the wake of an accident unknowingly compromise their claim by giving recorded statements without the presence of a lawyer, inadvertently admitting damaging facts or making statements that are taken out of context, not understanding the law and what is and is not required, resolving their claims before realizing the full extent of their injuries and/or without knowing their legal rights, or otherwise committing tactical errors. Insurance companies routinely try to persuade accident victims to reach a quick settlement “without lawyers.” You can forfeit valuable rights if you choose that course of action. Not only could you leave “money on the table” but you could unwittingly waive your rights to other legal claims and potentially even insurance benefits that you might not know about. Our experienced personal injury lawyers handle all negotiations with the other party’s insurance company and navigate the insurance mine traps for our clients.
Navigating Legal Complexities: When litigation is required, plaintiffs need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, evidentiary rules, court rules, case law, and applicable statutes. This complex array of legal standards and requirements can be daunting, and the way injured parties negotiate their way through this complex matrix can drastically impact the outcome of their case. At Montlick & Associates, we handle injury cases every day and know the nuances of the law. We also know what types of actions to take under the law in order to preserve our clients’ legal rights, and we fight hard to obtain all of the compensation they deserve!
Protect Your Right to Receive Full Monetary Compensation
You Have a Limited Amount of Time to Recover the Money You Are Owed
Seeking legal advice immediately after an injury can be critical to the success of your Alabama accident claim. Doing so helps avoid running afoul of Alabama’s legal “statute of limitations” and/or any other applicable deadlines, including potential notification deadlines in insurance policies. Failure to take the required actions before the expiration of legal deadline(s) will result in the loss of your right to money damages.
The Cost of Delay
In addition to the risk of missing legal time deadlines and losing your right to receive compensation, waiting too long before contacting our law firm can cause other unintended consequences as well. By way of example only, delay can result in a loss or destruction of evidence, witnesses can go missing or suffer a loss of memory, or a notification requirement in an insurance policy could be missed, all of which can damage your case and leave you with a smaller and unjust settlement.
Therefore, contacting our firm as quickly as possible after your accident or event that caused an injury will give our attorneys a full opportunity to assess your claim and avoid the harsh and sometimes unfair consequences of the statute of limitations and other consequences of delay in Alabama.

How Much is Your Personal Injury Case in Alabama Worth?
Alabama personal injury law generally allows injury victims to recover damages from the person or company responsible for their injuries. Negligent parties can be individuals, companies, governmental bodies, public utilities, public agencies, and other business organizations, either acting alone or in concert with each other.
The value of an injury claim depends on numerous factors, including, by way of example only, the facts and circumstances of the incident, how strong the liability is, the strength of the applicable law and evidence, the venue or locality where a claim must be brought, the likeability and credibility that witnesses would have to a jury, the extent of a client’s injuries, the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life, the extent of pain and suffering, whether someone is temporarily or permanently disabled, and others. Some examples of the types of damages our personal injury lawyers have recovered on behalf of our Alabama clients are compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills,
- Lost wages,
- Loss of earning capacity,
- Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles and personal property
- Pain and suffering,
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive Damages if the defendant’s conduct is malicious or egregiously reckless,
- Loss of consortium, companionship and guidance, and
- Compensation for Emotional distress.
The amount of damages a victim might recover in the State of Alabama is specific to the facts and circumstances of a given case. As such, every individual claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount you and your family might receive from a claim is not possible at the beginning of your case, but our attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted case values once all of the evidence has been assembled, we know the extent and long term effects of the injury, we have reviewed all medical records and expenses, and have evaluated the applicable law and the strength of the evidence. Our attorneys fight hard on behalf of each individual client in order to maximize the value of their claims under the law.

Our Promise to You
1. Treat your case as if it were our own. We'll treat you the same way we would want to be treated – as if it were our own case, or the case of a close friend or family member.
2. Protect you from powerful insurance companies. One of the first things the insurance adjuster will typically say is that you do not need an attorney. That's because the insurance company's goal is to pay you as little money as possible, and they know that injured people get substantially more money with an attorney representing them. With over 35 years of experience dealing with insurance companies, we can help you navigate through the insurance company minefields and avoid any traps.
3. Analyze your case at no charge to you. We'll evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect your rights, at no charge to you. We invite you to call us 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays to request a free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers. Or use our 24/7 online chat right here on our website.
4. Vigorously fight on your behalf in order to obtain all the compensation and benefits you deserve. There's always a lot at stake after a serious injury, and when our clients rely on us for help, we never take that situation lightly. We work extremely hard, and we will always do the right thing when it comes to our clients.
5. Give your case our personal attention. We tell our clients: "We want you to concentrate on getting well. We want to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns. We work for you, not the other way around."
6. Promptly return phone calls and keep you informed. We are sure you've heard about professionals who do not return phone calls; or perhaps you have spoken to people using other law firms who never knew what was going on with their case. That won't happen with us. We keep our clients well informed of important developments and routinely send copies of correspondence regarding their case.
7. Be there for you when you need us most. When our clients first call us after a serious injury, they're understandably really worried. And we say to them, "You don't have to do this alone." We'll take on the insurance company for you and help you get the money you deserve for your medical treatments, lost wages, car repairs and pain and suffering. That's the kind of help we've been giving for over 35 years.
8. Always treat you with dignity and respect. Our promise is to operate at all times with honesty, integrity, high moral character and unquestionable ethics. And we'll treat you with kindness and give you and your family the dignity and respect that you deserve.
