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.
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.
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.
Paula Molano was my attorney and I must say she did an amazing job with my case. She kept me informed on everything and any questions I had she answered. Very amazing attorney shes the best in my eyes. Thanks for everything
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.
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!
Incredible service! Mr. Ellis Lui went over and beyond what I expected with a trying DUI case. Thank You again!
Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!
I highly recommend Ellis C. Liu! Thank you Montlick & Associates for everything!
Attorney Alyssa White & Antonia Morris were great to work with. They were accessible to answer questions and always provide timely responses and continuous updates of the process. Attorney Alyssa reached out to me to provide me an update days before having her baby… I would say that’s SUPERB dedication to service. I appreciate all the work & support you both provided. Thank you Attorney Alyssa White & Antonia Morris Legal Assistant & the Montick & Associate Law Firm for representing me in my time of need.Sincerely,Rita Williams

Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving Atlanta

Maximum Compensation. Maximum Care.

In addition to the emotional turmoil caused by the wrongful death of a loved one, family members often contend with financial difficulties due to high medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, and/or lost income or support from the deceased. This can add another layer of stress and hardship for those affected by a wrongful death. For 40 years Montlick has been putting money in our clients’ pockets—where it belongs.

Our approach to our cases is different than most big firms. We value personalized service. That means to us, you’re never just a case number. When you hire us, you’ll get to know your attorney and legal team right from the start, and you’ll never be left in the dark about your case.

Atlanta Wrongful Death Claims

Battling Big Insurance

Protect Your Rights

Montlick attorneys work for you. We will handle all aspects of your claim and ensure that your legal rights are protected at every turn.
Contact Us

To the insurance companies fighting hard to minimize your payout, you’re just a claim number. Our job is to make the insurance companies understand the true value of your loss, not base your compensation on the insurance company’s cold, impersonal calculations. We will do what it takes to investigate all potential avenues of recovery, hire experts when needed, and assemble and present evidence in the most persuasive way, and work hard to get you the most money possible.

What type of damages are recoverable?

The types of damages recovered can vary from state-to-state as well. For example, the types of damages or combination of damages some states allow for wrongful death claimants include the full economic and non-economic value of the life of the victim, loss of companionship, value of support and services, and/or punitive damages, to name a few. Families may also be entitled to burial and funeral expenses, medical expenses incurred, and payment for the pain and suffering endured by the deceased victim.

The laws that determine who can actually bring a wrongful death claim are complicated and can be confusing if you’ve never been down this road before. Depending on your relationship to your lost loved one, various state laws, and other unique facts and circumstances of your case, you may or may not have the right to bring a wrongful death claim. The easiest way to find out if you’re entitled to bring a claim is by calling Montlick. An attorney (not a paralegal or legal assistant—a qualified attorney) will walk you through your legal options and advise you on the next steps to take to protect your rights.

Legal Time Deadlines Vary

Legal time deadlines can vary greatly based on the specifics of each case. That’s why contacting a Montlick attorney as soon as possible for a free consultation is always the right choice.
Act Now
Why You Need to Act Now

All types of legal claims are subject to “statutes of limitations” or legal time deadlines. Failing to comply with a statute of limitations could mean that you will lose all ability and rights to financial compensation.

Every state has laws that limit the amount of time families have to file or settle wrongful death claims. Statutes of limitations in wrongful death cases normally begin running on the date of the incident that caused the victim’s death, but the amount of time a person has to file the claim varies significantly depending on the relevant state, and there are exceptions that can shorten or lengthen such deadlines. In some cases, a combination of different types of legal claims may exist that involve different time frames, which may be due to multiple defendants and/or even the laws of more than one jurisdiction.

We advise clients to take action as soon as possible when they learn they might have a legal cause of action. Some states have shorter statutes of limitations on wrongful death cases than on other personal injury cases, so it is even more important to act quickly. In auto accident cases, many insurance policies owned by the victim or the victim’s family also have timely notification requirements, meaning if a claim is not filed in time or appropriate notice is not given, the family of the decedent can lose valuable insurance money.

We want you to have the strongest case possible, and that could mean we need to preserve evidence or talk to witnesses as soon as possible. Waiting too long to contact us could mean that important evidence necessary for your case disappears or is destroyed; or and witnesses go missing or forget what happened. We throughly investigate our clients’ cases, and these factors are often extremely important elements in that investigation.

Wrongful death cases can be the result of many situations in which negligent, reckless or intentional conduct by an individual or company leads to a fatality. Wrongful death cases can arise from car or truck crashes, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, products liability claims, premises liability claims and more.

Generally, wrongful death lawsuits have potentially enormous monetary value, and require thorough investigation by an experienced attorney. Financial compensation could be achieved through more than one avenue, such as multiple defendants, multiple insurance policies, and more. Our lawyers know how to properly investigate a wrongful death case so that grieving families get the money they deserve.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
