I had an excellent experience working with Enrique Fernandez on my case. He was always efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Mr. Fernandez and Montlick & Associates to anyone who has been involved in a personal injury matter.

Mrs. Sara Root and her assistant Chris are the best..Mrs. Root is a very smart attorney she does her research and analyze everything about your case!! I had a spinal injury that resulted to surgery due to being rear ended in a car accident ..They kept me updated through every step..Chris called to check on me often and Mrs. Root made sure i understood everything..Yes i will have back pains in the future but she ensured that i was well compassionated for my life changes due to my injury..

My experience with Nives Juric and Krystal Rivera, was amazing. To start, I was not sure that I was doing right thing, however after my initial conversation with Nives, I knew that having Nevis representing me was best decision I made.Krystal was very instrumental in putting everything together. she left no stone unturn. from fact finding to gathering information, most important of all, she made me feel very comfortable when I was asking questions. let me tell you I ask a lot of question.I would highly recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys and having Nives Juric and Krystal Rivera, working to have them be a part of your team should you ever need an injury attorney.

When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

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

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

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.
