Albany Pedestrian Crash Injury Attorneys

We'll Focus On Winning, So You Can Focus On Healing

You’re walking to work when all of a sudden, you’re struck by a careless driver. In a second, your life has changed dramatically. 

Pedestrians can be at risk of serious accidents when facing distracted or reckless drivers on the street. In fact, pedestrians are the least protected of all road users, lacking the padding and safety features of motor vehicles, and often the head protection of cyclists. Any crash between a vehicle and a pedestrian has the potential for serious consequences, including life-altering injuries or death.

Avoid a Costly Mistake

Your case’s outcome may impact the rest of your life. The lawyers at Montlick know that. That’s why our goal is always to maximize your compensation, so you can prioritize your recovery.

They kept in touch with me about every aspect of my case. I knew they were working for my benefit.
The staff are courtesy and the attorneys work hard on your behalf. In addition, they keep you abreast of the status of your case.
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!
Hey everyone alyssa is the best lawyer I have ever had. She works fast and has everything organized. If you are having trouble looking for a lawyer no problem call Alyssa Martin she’s the best!!!!
Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter
On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.
I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.
I hired Mrs. Forrester for my case last year in May and they got me settled for more money than I ever thought!!! Very professional and prompt with call backs my overall experience with them was amazing!! Mrs. Foresster and Ms. Julie Vaughn was the sweetest and most hard working lawyers there is I have already referred them to my sister and will continue to recommend them to all my friends and family!!
Spectacular Service! Attorney Glosser and Gia worked countless hours on my case. Very pleased with the outcome!
Thank you Jason and Kalana for working on my son's case. No one else would take this case because it was so difficult and you guys worked hard on making sure that he got his settlement. I wish I could give you guys a hundred Stars because that's how amazing you are thanks again.
I came to Montlick because of a minor accident I had on slingshot. Nothing is too big or too small for this law firm. I must say. It has been a pleasure working with Sarah and her asst Christopher. They were very professorial. And got right on the case. They always kept me informed every step of the way. Very satisfied customer! Thx again! 😊
Definitely the best! They worked hard for me and I really appreciate them.
This is from Terri Dodd a friend of mine and client of Motlick and Associates. She would like to express her sincere appreciation to Scott Patterson and his team for their remarkable work on her personal injury case. They have given 100% attention to her needs and concerns, and their work has been exemplary. She and I both highly recommend anyone and everyone searching for legal assistance to contact Montlick and Associates.
Montlick & Associates, Attorneys are outstanding. When a hit a run driver rear-ended my car, I called the law firm, and they worked on my case from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them if you have legal matters.
Best attorney I've worked with
I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.
Excellent as always. This is the second case that has been worked out for me. Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark have always gone above and beyond. Thank you so much.
Awesome people to work would recommend them to anyone who needed an attorney

The cost of doctor’s visits, physical therapy, surgeries, and prescription medications can quickly mount to unaffordable levels. Don’t wait — the path to financial recovery begins with a call to Montlick.

Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side After an Accident

Their priority is profit. Our priority is you.

When a pedestrian is struck down by a motorist in Albany, the result can be the type of serious injury that permanently impacts one’s life and can even prove fatal. Insurance companies often try to blame a pedestrian for causing such accidents based on such grounds as the “the darting child”, “jaywalking” or “failure to cross at the crosswalk.” The reality is that a pedestrian may often recover for injuries suffered when hit by a motor vehicle even if the pedestrian is found to be partially responsible for the accident. Given the devastating types of injuries that are common in Albany pedestrian accidents, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible from an experienced Albany pedestrian accident attorney.

All drivers have a duty to exercise ordinary care to avoid running over or striking pedestrians with a motor vehicle. This duty includes engaging in prudent driving practices and observing traffic safety laws. When drivers fail to exercise caution in areas where pedestrians are present, such as residential neighborhoods and school zones, the consequences can be devastating injuries for pedestrians. Motorists must comply with traffic safety laws and yield to pedestrians.

Complicated Cases

These cases require significant knowledge and skill. At Montlick, we have both.

Finding Fault in a Pedestrian Wreck

When a driver hits a pedestrian, the biggest question is often who is at fault for the crash. Fault is generally determined by the laws of negligence, set out in O.C.G.A. 51-11-7, which requires that a plaintiff prove the defendant was more than 50 percent at fault for the accident. In the event of a pedestrian accident, fault will be thoroughly investigated based on the actions and behavior of the driver of the car as well as the pedestrian. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you should contact an attorney at Montlick as soon as possible. Our attorneys can examine the facts and circumstances of what occurred as well as advise you on the necessary steps to protect your legal rights.

Did You Know?

Even if you receive a citation after you’re injured as a pedestrian, you could still have a viable personal injury claim. Contact us today to find out.

Pedestrian Accidents Are On the Rise

The Governors Highway Safety Association projects a nearly ten percent spike in pedestrian fatalities in 2015. In just the first six months of 2015, over 2,300 pedestrians were tragically killed in accidents nationwide. Factors contributing to this jump in pedestrian deaths could include:

  • More cars on the road: As the economy has improved in recent years and more Americans can now afford vehicles, the number of cars on the road have increased. More cars on the road mean a higher likelihood of pedestrian-related accidents.
  • More pedestrians: As a whole, our country has become more environmentally-oriented and health-focused. This means incorporating more walking into daily patterns and with more pedestrians traveling along roadways and crossing streets, the potential for fatal pedestrian accidents also increases.
  • Smartphones: In the past few years, smartphones have become ubiquitous in our landscape. Unfortunately, many people often use their phones while driving, despite a great deal of public awareness surrounding the dangers of doing so. Distracted drivers are a common cause of pedestrian and other accidents, but pedestrians also place themselves at risk when they walk while using their smartphones. Remaining vigilant as you walk is an important safety precaution to incorporate in your daily walks.
