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!

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.

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 !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

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.

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.
Senecia Wilkerson
I can only say positive things.Sarah Root and Christopher Gladys are consummate professionals. Upon my initial conversation with Sarah, I was informed how my case would be handled. I felt taken care of throughout the entire process. Both Sarah and Christopher were available to me at any time.The results were better than I expected, and I am thrilled with the outcome.Thank you, Sarah and Christopher! You are awesome!
Jeffrey Compton

Montlick & Associates, Attorneys are outstanding. When a hit a run driver rear-ended my car, I called the law firm, and they worked on my case from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them if you have legal matters.
Rudolph Frazier
My experience with Montlick and having Ms. Sara Root alongside her team member went above the call of duty to assist me and daughter after our accident a few months. I'm very grateful to have them on my side the whole step of the way.Thanks again Ms. Sara Root, Chris Gladys and the rest of Montlick & Associates.

Car Wreck Lawyers for Columbus, Georgia

What Are You Entitled To After a Car Crash Injury?

Georgia car accident law generally allows personal injury victims (or families who have lost loved ones in a crash) to recover monetary damages from negligent individuals or companies responsible for their injuries. “Negligent individuals” can include individuals, public utilities, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or together with each other.

If you or a loved one was hurt in a car accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to “damages” usually in the form of financial compensation (money) to pay for medical costs and other costs associated with the accident.

When a car wreck upends your life, you need a law firm that knows how to explore all avenues of compensation and vigorously pursue them on behalf of you or your loved one.

Free Consultation
What is my claim worth?

Our aggressive Columbus lawyers pursue all types of damages that our clients are entitled to under Georgia law. This can include past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages and/or loss of earning capacity if your injury has prevented you from working or will prevent you from working in the future. In some cases, you could be entitled to money to cover property damage as well, including damage to vehicles and other personal property. Additional compensation could also apply based on other, less clearly measurable factors, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and more.

The value of a 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 likability 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

The amount of economic damages an auto accident injury victim might recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances and facts of the case. As such, each individual accident claim is unique. Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family could receive from an accident claim is generally not possible at the outset of your traffic accident case. However, our lawyers are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we understand the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have evaluated the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.

Your case’s outcome may impact the rest of your life. That’s why we aim to maximize the money in your pocket – so you can prioritize your recovery.

Battling Big Insurance After an Auto Accident

Dealing with the physical, emotional and financial aftermath of a car crash is a lot to handle. During this difficult and confusing time, people injured in auto accidents must be careful to avoid damaging their legal claim for a settlement. Some people assume that they can deal directly with the insurance companies, but it’s important to remember that the job of the insurance company is to protect its own bottom line. To keep profits up, they try to pay injury victims as little as possible or even deny their claim altogether. The insurance company will have a team of investigators, experts and attorneys at their disposal whose goals are to pay you the absolute minimum they can. When you try to deal with insurance company adjusters on your own, without a lawyer, it could cost you valuable money in the long run.

Columbus Crashes Are Increasing

In 2020, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recorded more than 330,000 crashes in Georgia, with 1,588 fatal accidents resulting in the deaths of 1,730 people. Of those not killed, another 125,000 people recorded serious injuries.

In 2021, Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety reported 1,797 car accident fatalities, and the trend continued to rise. Despite being the eighth most-populous state, Georgia ranks fourth for the largest number of fatal accidents, and it shows no sign of slowing its rise to the tragic top.

In Columbus, there were 38,532 accidents resulting in 117 fatalities. As the probability of experiencing a car crash increases within Columbus, having an experienced and knowledgeable Montlick personal injury lawyer on your side is key.
