I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Montlick from start to finish. I know for a fact that I would have had so much more pain and stress if it weren't for their handling of my case. Alyssa White and Antonia Morris handled everything with expert care. They were very communicative as well - any time I had a question it was answered immediately. I am so glad I made the right decision to call them when I needed help. I cannot recommend them enough!

Honestly, at the first moment I wasn't going to go with Montlick & Associates, I was with another lawyer that didn't put my needs 1st 😒, I said ha forget that I'm going with Montlick Law Firm and I called and the first thing the Associate said is how you doing 😊 it made me feel so comfortable with them, I didn't have to do anything they handled all the work and made sure they took care of me in the end. I'm happy and will just say that you would be too if you decided to go with Montlick law firm!! #MontlickLawFirm #JusticeServed #ClientLove

This is by far the absolute best Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia. My attorney, Nick Vocino, who’s extremely brilliant, exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, efficient, effective, and prompt has handled two car accident cases for me resulting in very favorable outcomes. Nick Vocino and his staff possess the right combination of skills that you can trust to get the very best results. This firm has earned my most fervent and enthusiastic recommendation.

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

I'd recommend using Montlick and Associates. They are professional and I felt that I was treated fairly after I was assigned a new attorney. Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained his plan of action and it he took care of everything.

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!
Earnest
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!
Tonya Newberry
Again, they did it again.. my lawyer and her associate are the best. I would recommend Montlick and Associates to EVERYONE who needs a law firm that cares!! I am so grateful for them God blessed me with am amazing duo!!
Daniels Ireti
After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.
Alex McGee
Sincerity speaks volumes to me and I can not say enough about the service and the genuine care that Montlick provided for my case. The entire process was smooth and went very well in my favor. I totally felt a sense of compassion from my attorney and his staff ... they really cared and had me in mind the entire time. I highly recommend this firm ... they are the best!
Traci Fields
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.. I am so grateful to have had them during my recovery process. Thanks guys!..We met and talk about God m having faith and a connection! I give Montlick a 10 out of 10..I highly recommend them..Thanks to all that participated in making this process smooth and successful!! Awesome Awesome Awesome Team!!

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark at Montlick. They took an awful incident and walked me through the process of getting the care I needed and knowledge to help pay for expenses and get a reasonable claim to help me and my family. I have recommended them to others and definitely recommend them to those looking for an attorney that listens and treats you like a person.
Bea Moore
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 !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ashley Spell
Getting into a car accident is traumatic but, having Orlando Mara and Micheal Boyd handle my uninsured motorist case reduced my stress levels by a lot. They kept me up to date the entire time and very considerate of the outcome and settlement! I HOPE I never get into an accident again but if I do, I know who to call! Thank you all!
Tiffany McFarlane
I was injured in a car accident and Montlick and Associates truly delivered. My lawyer, Mike Moran, is knowledgeable and made sure I felt comfortable before making any moves. There was no money left on the table. He truly fights for his clients.Laura Gonzalez was my saving grace throughout this process. She answered all of my questions, and truly put my mind at ease. I can't thank them both enough!This was my first car accident and Mike and Laura did NOT disappoint!THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Morgan Kealy
After waiting 4 years to the day, my car accident case finally settled. William Parker, Jenna, and the entire Montlick staff were wonderful. They were great communicators , so I understood what was going on with my case every step of the way. I am so grateful to them for making a traumatic part of my life much easier to handle. I will definitely be recommending friends and family to them.
Shaneka Holmesdicks
Thank you to Jeff and Chris for taking care of my dad's case so well, and thank you to Faris for bringing us to Montlick and helping with everything along the way! We really do appreciate you guys so much.
Sam S
Michael Moran and his team took good care of me. They kept me in the loop of everything that was going on. All I did was do what they wanted me to do and kept them updated. I’m very satisfied with the outcome of my settlement. Thanks.
demetris burns
On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

Georgia Car Accident Attorney Explains:

“How are you today?”

“I’m good, how are you?”

This sounds like a common polite greeting, but when it comes to car accidents, that exchange can get your case into trouble down the road. It can even compromise your financial compensation!

Unfortunately, insurance companies are mostly concerned with their bottom line, and that means using every trick in the book to pay you as little as possible after an accident.

Georgia Montlick attorney Jen explains what you shouldn’t say to an insurance company (even your own!) after an Augusta car accident.

Car Accident Lawyers Near Augusta, Georgia

We Work for You

While you’re busy worrying about all of the personal matters that come with a car wreck, insurance corporations are already trying to build their case against your claim. These companies know how to take advantage of your vulnerable state in order to minimize or totally deny you the money you deserve. While insurers may seem caring and cooperative, their loyalty is always to the company’s bottom line. Ultimately, they want to collect premiums and pay out as little money as possible for a claim.

Insurance companies do not want you to talk to or retain a personal injury lawyer because their own industry research indicates that they generally pay out considerably more money to injured people who have experienced lawyers on their side.

One study administered by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) proved that:

  • 85% of personal injury claim payouts from insurance companies went to personal injury victims represented by legal counsel.
  • Injured people who retained legal representation generally received substantially greater monetary recoveries than unrepresented accident claimants.
  • On average, personal injury victims with attorneys received 300 percent more monetary compensation than individuals who did not retain an attorney.

What is My Augusta Auto Accident Case Worth?

How Montlick Adds Value

On average, personal injury victims with attorneys received 300% more money after an accident than those who did not hire a lawyer.

Get the Money You Deserve

Georgia personal injury law typically allows personal injury victims to recover monetary damages from the individual or company responsible for their injuries when another has been negligent. Negligent parties can include: individuals, companies, public utilities, governmental bodies, public agencies, and other business organizations, either acting alone or in concert with each other.

Our caring and dedicated attorneys pursue all forms of economic damages that our clients are entitled to under the law. The value of a personal injury claim depends on numerous factors, including:

  • the strength of legal liability
  • the facts and circumstances of the incident,
  • the strength of the applicable law and evidence
  • the venue or locality where a claim must be brought
  • the likeability and credibility that witnesses would have to a jury
  • the extent of a client’s injuries
  • the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life
  • the extent of pain and suffering
  • whether someone is temporarily or permanently disabled

Some examples of the types of economic damages our personal injury lawyers have recovered on behalf of our Georgia clients are compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles and personal property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages if the defendant’s conduct is malicious or egregiously reckless
  • Loss of companionship, consortium and guidance
  • Monetary compensation for emotional distress

The amount of compensatory damages an Augusta accident injury victim might recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the unique facts and circumstances of a given case. Every individual accident claim is unique. Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family could receive from an accident claim is not possible at the beginning stages of your accident claim. However, our lawyers are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted accident injury case values.

Legal Deadlines You Need to Know

Get the Help You Deserve

Free Consultation

According to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is generally two years from the date of the accident, but there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline. 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.

In Georgia, the statute of limitations or legal time deadline may be extended when a minor is involved. Statutes of limitations also vary from state to state. Our experienced traffic collision attorneys can review the facts and circumstances relevant to your accident injury claim to determine which statute of limitations apply.

In addition to Georgia’s legal deadlines, there are several other critical reasons for not delaying in seeking legal advice and assistance. Many injured people are surprised to find out that many times their own accident insurance policies can contain valuable insurance coverages, such as, Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage or Medical Payments Coverage. It is essential to keep in mind that insurance policies usually have time notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, may result in the loss of valuable benefits and compensation.
