I recently switched to Montlick and Associates after my previous lawyer, Scott Pryor Law, was unable to win my personal injury case or even secure an offer. My experience with Montlick and Associates, particularly with Nives Juric, has been nothing short of phenomenal.Nives Juric took on my case after it was dropped and, within just two months, secured two full settlement approvals. Her expertise and dedication have instilled confidence that the final settlement will be achieved with the same efficiency and success.If you’re in need of a personal injury lawyer, I highly recommend Montlick and Associates. Their commitment to their clients is exceptional, and Nives Juric’s results speak for themselves. They turned my previously hopeless case into a series of victories. Don’t hesitate to seek their assistance for your personal injury needs.

I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.

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.

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.

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

Montlick Injury Attorneys (Scott M. Patterson) and Staff (Sarah / Tamia) were very professional, thoughtful, caring, transparent, and work extremely hard to reach the best injury settlement outcome for our case. Thank you!
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.

I had a previous situation with a big Atlanta injury law firm. Montlick and Associates "blew them out of the water!" I was amazed at all that Montlick did for me that they did not. The concern, information, professionalism, timeliness, throughout the whole process of Montlick handling my case was amazing!

Abdominal trauma, also called Blunt Abdominal Trauma, or BAT, occurs when a person’s abdomen collides with another object, leading to the compression of the abdomen and surrounding organs (i.e., the pancreas, kidneys, stomach, intestines, spleen, liver, etc.) and excessive pressure exerted on the abdominal wall. This type of injury most typically arises in car accidents, especially those involving high speeds, where the force of the crash causes the body to propel sideways or forward, either into a seatbelt, the steering wheel, dashboard, or the frame of the actual vehicle. BAT is serious and can be fatal if not treated immediately following an automobile collision. In fact, BAT, if left untreated, is a leading cause of death to accident victims of all ages.

Although car accidents are the primary cause of BAT, additional common causes include, without limitation, the following:

  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Collisions involving recreational vehicles such as ATVs, boats, jet skis, etc.
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian-related accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Abuse or battery
Atlanta, Georgia Blunt Abdominal Trauma Injury Attorneys

The Signs and Symptoms of BAT

The signs and symptoms of BAT vary, ranging from minor bruising to serious internal bleeding. Generally speaking, people injured in a motor vehicle collision might present with a “seat belt sign” which is bruising on the abdomen along the site of the lap belt. Other signs and symptoms include, without limitation, the following:

  • Low blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Syncope (fainting)
  • Pain, pressure, or fullness in the abdomen or surrounding areas
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Difficulty passing stool
  • Blood in the urine or stool
  • Muscle weakness

When to Seek Treatment

Act Now

If you sustained a BAT, contact a knowledgeable Montlick injury attorney as soon as possible for your free consultation about your legal rights and how to protect those rights.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately, as a lack of treatment can result in, among others:

  • Ruptured organs, most often the spleen
  • Intestinal tears or fissures
  • Liver damage
  • Damage to the pancreas
  • Injury to major blood vessels
  • Damage to reproductive organs
  • Internal hemorrhaging
  • Kidney damage
  • Death

Your abdomen serves an essential purpose to your functionality. Providing structure for the spine and protecting vital internal organs, the effects of blunt abdominal trauma may be far-reaching. The abdomen protects vital organs from injuries that are potentially life-threatening.  When abdominal injuries happen, vital organs may not be fully protected, exposing an injured person to multiple medical problems. When a person sustains a BAT injury, their stomach, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, lower lungs, and liver are vulnerable to permanent damage.  If the damage is bad enough, a person may have internal bleeding and could be at risk of death.

If you or a loved one is injured in any sort of accident involving abdominal trauma, contact the Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Montlick.

Frequently Asked Questions

All Your 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.
