Montlick holds those responsible for this tragedy accountable.

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.

Thank you, Montlick and associates, for taking my case. Special thanks to Scott Paterson and his secretary Sarah for your patience and always encouraging when me it got tough. You put in all your effort to make sure I was compensated. I wish I could give you 100 stars. God bless you all, and thank you.
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!
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.

How Can an Augusta Wrongful Death Lawyer Help Me?

An Augusta wrongful death legal claim usually involves two separate and distinct claims: (1) wrongful death action and (2) survival action. The damages in a wrongful death action are not part of the decedent’s personal estate but instead damages paid to compensate the family members because a loved one has been taken from them.

The damages recoverable are measured by the full value of the decedent’s life from his or her perspective. This includes both economic loss like lost future income based on typical life expectancy, and other, more intangible forms of loss such as loss of enjoyment of life experiences and pain and suffering between the time of the incident that caused injury and the time of death.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim? 

A Path to Justice

Montlick has the knowledge and experience you need. We have a qualified staff of legal professionals that is ready to fight fiercely for your rights after the tragic loss of a loved one.
Start Here

The surviving spouse has the first priority in bringing a wrongful death claim in Georgia but any recovery must be shared with children of the decedent. If the person who dies is unmarried, then any children of the decedent may pursue a wrongful death claim.

Where the decedent has neither a surviving spouse nor children, the parents of the decedent may bring the wrongful death action. If a decedent has no surviving family members with any of these family relationships, then the executor of the estate may bring the wrongful death action on behalf of the next of kin.

The other legal claim that is typically brought in conjunction with a wrongful death claim is a survival action. The administrator of a decedent’s estate may also bring a claim for the damages suffered directly by the decedent. The action is called a survival claim because the purpose of the action is to have someone step into the shoes of the decedent.

The damages recoverable in a survival action include medical expenses, funeral/burial costs and pain and suffering if the decedent did not die instantly. Punitive damages may also be recoverable by the estate of the decedent if the facts support such damages.

Because our Georgia wrongful death lawyers have been representing the families of those whose death has been caused by a third party since we were founded in 1984, we are qualified to handle a wide variety of wrongful death claims including:

  • Auto accident cases
  • Trucking accidents
  • Falls from elevations
  • Rollover accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Violent crimes
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent security
  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Occupational illnesses

Our Georgia wrongful death attorneys understand the grief and financial hardship faced by family members of those who lost their lives due to intentional criminal or negligent conduct by a third party.

We believe in providing legal services based on compassion, commitment and personalized attention. We know that the emotional challenges faced by families of wrongful death victims are compounded if a lawyer fails to return phone calls or provide case status updates, so we promise to keep our clients informed about the progress of their claims and answer any questions promptly and thoroughly.
