The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.

On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates

Since Covid, I’ve been in 3 hit-and-run accidents in which neither were my fault. I had a different attorney represented me in the first accident who was not very attentive nor responsive to my numerous calls and questions. For my second and third accident, I decided to go with Montlick and Associates, specifically Attorney Cate Powell. Cate, returned my call; she listened, took notes, allowed me to vent about chronic pain I was experiencing and after finding out that the other driver almost got out of paying the liability claim due to a technicality, Cate assured me that she had everything under control. Unlike my first attorney, she not only provided updates but she checked on my recovery as well; and if she was unable to personally update me, she allowed her team to provide an update. Cate is a fighter for her clients, she even dealt with my insurance to ensure that I received everything that was owed to me. And she also represented my husband as well. She is now someone I trust wholeheartedly, and if I ever have a legal matter, I can call her for help and if she can’t represent me, she will certainly point me in the right direction.So, if you’re ever in an accident and seeking legal representation, and need a no-nonsense attorney, call Attorney Cate Powell because I am telling you from experience – she would be your one call that would fully represent you. Trust me!

There are many positive words to describe my experience with Montlick & Associates. However, the ones that are most applicable to my case are professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.I truly appreciate the time and effort that Nick Vocino and Amber Starks spent on my behalf. The entire process took about 2 years from the date of the accident to the date I got my settlement check. Nick kept me apprised every step of the way and for that, I am truly grateful!Montlick & Associates is a 5-star law firm. I would absolutely recommend it to my family and friends!
Wanda Hightower
After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.

Paving Your Road Forward

One minute you’re enjoying your commute to work. Then, an intimidating 18-wheeler pulls up behind you. Thirty times heavier than your vehicle, its presence starts to make you feel claustrophobic and cautious. You’re not being irrational–18-wheelers are a serious potential threat on the road. Though they make up just 4% of registered vehicles, they play a leading role in 9% of fatal crashes, according to the National Safety Council. Since 2016, the number of fatal crashes involving 18-wheelers has increased 5%.

Even when you’re doing your best to be safe around big rigs, the danger is still there. Between corporations cutting costs, truck driver shortages, and grueling expectations for current drivers–whose compensation is commonly based on how many deliveries are completed in a given period of time–73% of truck drivers say they feel squeezed by their tight delivery schedules, according to the CDC.

Preserve Evidence Before It's Lost

When it comes to preserving evidence after a truck accident, timing is everything. Trucking companies are never eager to pay out to accident victims and are notorious for sending their own investigators to the crash scene while it’s still in progress. Occasionally (accidentally or intentionally), critical evidence is destroyed during this process. After the emotional and physical trauma of a truck accident, the last injustice you need is to contend with vicious tactics from the trucking company responsible for your injuries and suffering. When you contact Montlick after your accident, we will arrive at the scene and take all necessary steps to ensure the evidence you need to win is preserved, safeguarded, and leveraged.

Types of Compensation

We fight hard on behalf of our trucking accident clients to pursue the full value of their case. Damages can include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent disability
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Punitive damages

Tips for Staying Safe Near 18-Wheelers

The size and weight of large trucks and buses obligate drivers to be vigilant behind the wheel. Driving near large trucks and buses can be intimidating when operating a much smaller vehicle next to it. Passenger cars weigh close to 4,000 pounds on average. Conversely, large trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when carrying a full load of weight. The obvious size and weight difference between a large truck and passenger car makes driving near trailer trucks dangerous. Additionally, passenger cars and motorcycles quickly become lost in the truck driver’s blind spots. Moreover, the height of the trailer creates a dangerous situation for passenger cars if the truck jackknifes. Smaller vehicles can go under the trailer, likely resulting in serious injury or death for the passengers.

Truck drivers owe a duty to motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians to drive safely. Observing the duty of care involves:

Understanding that stopping a truck loaded with freight takes longer than stopping the average car. The FMCSA estimates that a stopping a fully loaded tractor-trailer requires almost 600 feet.

Additionally, large trucks have limited maneuverability. Therefore, truck drivers must maintain safe speeds and not weave in and out of traffic.

Drivers must also follow federal and state regulations relating to maximum load weight, as well as ensure compliance with tie-down standards and anti-fatigue measures.

Failure to comply with these safety concerns and inability to follow the rules of the road will endanger fellow motorists. Most truck drivers are trained professionals. However, when a truck driver and his/her employer are liable for injuries or death caused by breach of a duty of care or violation of Georgia or federal laws, our attorneys at Montlick and Associates understand the complexity of trucking cases. Moreover, we understand how seriously these accidents change our clients lives and, in the appropriate cases, investigate the circumstances of the accident, including forcing the trucking company to preserve valuable black box data, inspecting the truck itself, interviewing witnesses and others.

  • Fatal truck and bus crash incidents have increased 20 percent  starting in 2009.
  • The total number of crashes involving personal injuries grew by 62 percent in that same time period.
  • Crashes involving property damage only declined one percent from 2014 to 2015.

Frequently Asked Questions

All Your Truck Accident Questions Answered

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
For personal injury claims resulting from a car accident, the statute of limitations in Georgia is usually two years from the date of the accident. This means you would have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party/parties. Failure to file within this time frame could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries. The statutes of limitations can vary depending on the jurisdiction of the accident.
