My family hired David Weinberg to represent my mother. David and Carmen did an amazing job of not only fighting for my mother but keeping us informed through a process we really didn't think we were going to come out on top of. We did get a settlement and the sheer fact that we could in spite of the insurance company doing their best to pull one over on my mother meant everything to us. 10/10 would recommend Montlick & Associates and David Weinberg.

I am a former employee of Montlick and Associates. I was visiting in the Atlanta area when my grandchildren and I were involved in a multiple car accident. It never occurred to me to call another firm and I wasn't wrong. Orlando Marra and his assistant Jennifer kept me informed about what was going on and , hopefully, I won't need them again. If I do, I won't hesitate to call again. Thanks, Orlando.

What Is Your Case Worth?

Know Your Deadlines After a Crash
If you or a loved one is injured in an auto collision, there are strict legal and contractual time deadlines that must be met to avoid missing out on valuable financial compensation. The statute of limitations prohibits bringing a legal case after a certain period of time following one’s accident or injury, and that amount of time varies from state to state.
In Albany, Georgia, generally a personal injury claim needs to be filed within two years of the date of the injury, but that timeline can become longer or shorter depending on your specific circumstances. For example, shorter time deadlines will apply if you are suing a public entity (in the case of a dangerous roadway, for example) and their may be reporting requirements and other deadlines in insurance policies. There could be exceptions that affect your outcome. In all instances, it is critical to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to find out your legal options.
What Can Compensation Cover
Our powerhouse firm has been representing those injured in motor vehicle collisions and recovering valuable compensation for our clients for over 39 years. While the precise value of your auto collision claim and the types of available damages will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of you case, some damages that might be available include:
  • Cost of medical bills and hospitalization
  • Vehicle damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income and impaired future earning ability
  • Loss of consortium
  • Costs of burial (wrongful death)
  • Punitive damages


Car Accidents Are Climbing in Albany

In 2020, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recorded more than 330,000 crashes in Georgia, with 1,588 fatal accidents resulting in the deaths of 1,730 people. Of those not killed, another 125,000 people recorded serious injuries.

In 2021, Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety reported 1,797 car accident fatalities, and the trend continued to rise into 2022. Despite being the eighth most-populous state, Georgia ranks fourth for the largest number of fatal accidents, and it shows no sign of slowing its unfortunate rise to the top.

In Albany, there were 3,279 car accidents that resulted in 16 fatalities and 1,515 injuries. At a midsize city with a population of 72,600 people, Albany’s car accident rate surpasses the national average. Being prepared for a car accident may be the difference between maximizing your compensation and limiting your suffering.

Even if you consider yourself a cautious driver constantly on the defense, you may still find yourself the victim of someone else’s negligence. If you do, understanding your rights and the steps needed to protect those rights can be the difference between financial stress and financial compensation.
