Montlick and Associates at Executive Park in Atlanta, Ga have been the most professional and customer service oriented firm I've had the pleasure of working with despite the circumstance I was in. They were able to assist me with 1 case successfully in December 2019.I recently needed additional assistance in October 2023 for a 2nd case. This time Montlick and Associtates could not directly assist me due to the nature of my request, but they were able to point me into the right direction on where I can receive attorney services.That was such a huge relief! Thank you to Nick Vocino and his office and team!
Anthony Bolah
I couldn’t have chosen a better law firm to handle the case of my accident which was not my fault! Jason Saltzman was my attorney and he was amazing and he didn’t leave any stones unturned! He worked for the absolute most for me and got me the care I needed ! And Esmeralda, his senior legal assistant, was always there when I had questions and would always email me back very quickly if I had questions and she and Jason really put my mind at ease while going through all of this ! He got me the maximum of what I deserved and worked hard on my case! I’d give them 100 stars if I could because they are the best! I’d recommend them anytime any day for anyone who needs an attorney who cares and one that will answer you no matter what and answer any questions that you may have ! Thank you so much Jason and Esmeralda !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amber and Nick have been an outstanding team. They guided me through the legal process after my accident and always kept me up-to-date with progress on my case. Amber was always available to answer any questions, and was so polite and professional. Both Nick and Amber really did an amazing job of making me feel like I was their priority. Thanks so much to both of you!

Although the circumstances that led me to Montlick and Associates were not pleasant, this firm was a joy to work with. Nick Vocino and his team, especially "Amber Starks: ("AmberfromMrVocinosoffice"). They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. They paid close attention to items that I thought were "little things" and answered all of my concerns. They made my family feel important and treated us as such. Thank you for your hard work. I would certainly recommend this firm to others, especially my family and friends.

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.

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.
