Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.

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.
Charming Caregivers and Homemakers
Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.

Attorney Jennifer Fleming and her Assistant, Joy Herrington were beyond amazing! They were both very professional and patient. As well, no gaps in communication (major plus for me) and my case received above my expectations. Thank you team for educating me through the process and all you did to help my case.
Sabrina Claiborne
I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Angel Perkins

Thomas Hollis
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
Anita Erickson
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.

Athens Spine and Paralysis Injury Attorneys

Justice for Your Injury

When you come out of the hospital after suffering from a severe spinal injury, your fight is hardly over. You still have to contend with significant obstacles. Depending on how severe your accident was, you may be looking at:

  • A lifetime of medical care just to manage your pain
  • Surgeries, hospitalizations, and medications.
  • Expensive specialist visits 
  • $3,000 or more for an electric wheelchair

You didn’t cause your accident, and you shouldn’t be on the hook to pay expenses linked to it. Allow an experienced attorney from Montlick to advocate for your financial future. 

Your case’s financial outcome will impact the rest of your life. Medical costs, ongoing care, lost wages if you miss work or are unable to return to your job after the accident—all of this can contribute to financial anxiety and uncertainty which can impact every aspect of your day-to-day life. We recover money for clients to compensate them for their medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, permanent impairments and more.
Trying to combat the insurance company on your own can be an enormous, costly mistake. Insurance companies know how to maximize their profits and use often unfair and intentionally confusing tactics to pay you as little as possible for your injury. At Montlick, we deal with these tactics every day, and we’re trained and ready to fight on your behalf.

Paraplegic and Quadriplegic Injuries

The extent of your spinal cord injury is determined by its location and severity. Paraplegia and quadriplegia are two serious injuries that can result from spinal cord damage. Paraplegia is the paralysis of both lower limbs, while quadriplegia is the paralysis of all four limbs. A paraplegic injury will occur lower down on the spine and a quadriplegic injury in the neck region.

Individuals with either paraplegia or quadriplegia will likely need a wheelchair. They are also at risk of a number of complications, including pain, circulatory disorders, respiratory disorders, osteoporosis, loss of sensation, autonomic disorders, sexual dysfunction, bladder problems, and more.

Anyone suffering from paraplegia or quadriplegia will require ongoing medical care, which can be quite expensive. Thus, it is imperative that individuals who have sustained paraplegia or quadriplegia due to the negligence of another person or company consult with a spinal cord injury attorney to learn about their legal rights as well as the necessary steps to protect those rights. Athens paralysis victims should be able to obtain compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, ongoing disability, and more from the at fault party.

Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries

While paraplegia and quadriplegia are complete spinal cord injuries that result in a total loss of function, many other spinal cord injuries are less severe and termed “incomplete.” Incomplete spinal cord damage leaves you with some degree of feeling or function, but you can also experience abnormal sensations or mobility. Patients commonly experience tingling or numbness, as well as pain or difficulty moving parts of the body. These injuries can greatly impact a patient’s quality of life and will often require medication, rehabilitation, and potentially surgery to relieve the symptoms.

The Scope of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries occur at alarming rates nationwide. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are approximately 17,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries each year, and 282,000 people today living with spinal cord injuries. Men account for the majority of new spinal cord injury cases with the average age of injury being 42 years old. Victims of spinal injuries can experience a loss of sensation, loss of movement, numbers, tingling, impaired breathing, paraplegia, and quadriplegia.

Among the spinal cord injury population, depression, chronic pain, pressure injuries, spasticity, change in bowel and bladder function, and a change in how the brain processes pleasure all change how victims experience life.
