Pedestrian Accident Lawyers for Columbus

We Take Your Claim Personally

A pedestrian accident injury can turn your life upside down in moments—physically, mentally, and financially.

Since pedestrians who are struck by motor vehicles have virtually no protection, their injuries are often more severe than those suffered in vehicle-to-vehicle accidents. That means that even more so than other types of crashes, pedestrian accidents in Columbus often lead to life-changing injuries. When you’re in pain and looking toward an uncertain future, you don’t have to do it alone.

We Win While Our Clients Heal

When clients come to us after a pedestrian accident injury, we understand the physical, financial, and emotional anxiety they’re experiencing. We’re here to minimize your stress and maximize the money in your pocket so that you can focus on your well-being.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy & Cate at Montlick, and I can't recommend them enough! From the moment I reached out for a consultation to the resolution of my case, the team displayed utmost professionalism, empathy, and expertise. Every question was answered promptly, and I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and dedication to my case was evident, and it truly felt like they went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. It's clear that this firm not only has a deep understanding of the law but also a genuine commitment to their clients' well-being. If you're in need of legal assistance in Georgia , Montlick & associates should be your first call. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their exceptional service!
I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.
Both Sarah Root (attorney) and Chris Gladys (legal assistant) were great with communicating and advising as they worked through my case. One, if not both, checked in and explained things at every step of the entire process. They were not only great at explaining what was going on, options, and the legality of every step and choice, but always friendly and professional. I greatly appreciate the guidance, and effort they put into my case.
Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.
Good Day Ms. Claudia Turner and Ms. Kim Jacobsen. Your team worked to assist me with my accident. I thank GOD that it gives a person like you who look out for people like me. I truly found my Angel. I will tell everyone if they need someone in their corner MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES you can trust to go the extra mile.Thank you again Ms. Claudia TurnerA Very, Very Greatful Client.Vanetta C. Stockfisch
I love this law firm so much I’m so glad I chose them. When montlick & associates first took my case I explain to them what I was looking for and needed, once I was placed with my attorney Ms Nives Juric, she got to work on my case and communicated every step of the way she explained everything to me, I’m so glad I chose montlick & associates to represent my case.BEST ATTORNEY 😍😍
The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.
If you or your love ones ever need an accident attorney, I recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys. Nick and his team were great, and was very attentive to my son’s needs. Nick worked hard to get my son a nice settlement to get back on his feet after his traumatic accident. We are are ever so grateful!
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.
Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.
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
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.
Alyssa and Antonia was very professional and helpful when working on my case I highly suggest this law firm.
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.
I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.
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!
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.
I recently had the pleasure of working with the law firm of Montlick and Associates. I was very impressed with their professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance
Great company . Fast results . I worked with Nick Vacino. He was a pleasure to work with .
Catherine Powell is one of the best lawyers I know out here work hard for you to get the truth and try to close your case as soon as possible when she says she’s gonna handle it and get it done she does it I really appreciate you more than my case and I thank you from the bottom of my heart Rita Cross
I have professionally worked with many of the attorneys at Montlick and find each attorney to exhibit exemplary ethics and professionalism. They treat their clients with utmost respect and I would recommend my family to any of the attorneys in the firm.
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
Amazing people to work with. They will do everything to make their clients happy.. Working with them I felt safe in the right hands. I will recommend Attorney Nives Juric to everyone and of course the most kindest person her assistant Krystal Rivera.
I had an excellent experience working with Ms.Alyssa White and Ms.Antonia Morris on my case! They were very professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend Montlick & Associates to everyone!!!

Columbus Pedestrian Accident Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

Pedestrians Are at a Disadvantage From the Start. We Can Help.

Pedestrians tend to start off their cases in a tough spot. Due to the serious nature of injuries that are usually involved in a pedestrian accident, the victim might be taken off the scene for immediate medical attention, and therefore the responding officer might only have the drivers’ side of the story in the police report.

At-fault drivers in pedestrian accidents typically blame the victims for causing the accident in order to avoid liability and any corresponding criminal charges. This could include saying the victim darted into the street, did not use proper crosswalks, and more.

In some cases the responding officer might even cite the injured pedestrian for a violation. Even if you were cited for not walking in a crosswalk, you could still have a case. Contact us today to find out.

Insurance companies will often initially attempt to speak with victims in an effort to obtain information to deny or minimize their claims. Our attorneys protect our clients from such insurance traps and pitfalls.

Here's What You Need to Know About Pedestrian Injury Claims

Do You Have a Case?

Speak with a Montlick attorney who will examine your situation and tell you whether you have a personal injury claim FOR FREE.

The Clock Is Ticking

Statutes of limitations determine the amount of time, starting from the date of the accident, in which a victim or the family of the victim may bring a personal injury or wrongful death case, whichever applies. The amount of time a person has to resolve or file a lawsuit for a personal injury claim varies from state to state, and there are exceptions that can shorten or even lengthen the deadlines. It is critical to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to find out if you have a viable case.

Certain types of pedestrian accident claims against state or federal government entities can have much shorter deadlines. In some pedestrian accident cases, there could be a combination of different types of injury claims that may involve different time frames, multiple defendants, and/or the laws of more than one jurisdiction. Also, in some states, the statute of limitations could be extended when the personal injury case involves a minor child.

How Your Own Insurance Could Help

In some cases, the victims’ own auto insurance policies could provide additional sources of compensation. Policy add-ons such as uninsured/underinsured motorist as well as Medical Payments (MedPay) and/or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) can provide additional coverage in the case of pedestrian accident injuries.

Our attorneys work to identify all viable avenues of recovery, and in the past, we have been successful in discovering additional defendants and insurance policies that our clients were not aware of, or that other insurance companies did not disclose. We have 40 years of experience maximizing the money in our clients’ pockets.

Pedestrian Accident Stats

With the Chattahoochee River running through town and an abundance of outdoor activities, Columbus is a lovely place to explore. Walking along the riverwalk or exploring the urban areas of town is a commonplace activity locals and tourists often partake in. However, the danger of being hit by a car while strolling through Columbus is always present with distracted, drunk, and reckless drivers on the roads.

Columbus pedestrian accidents can be caused by many kinds of unsafe driving. Nationally, there are 59,000 accidents and 4,000 fatalities that happen every year from hit-by-car pedestrian accidents.

Distracted drivers who are on their phones, applying make-up, or eating, drunk drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and reckless drivers who are driving over the speed limit or driving while drowsy. Unsafe driving in school zones or construction zones are also a factor in pedestrian accidents.

When Montlick takes on pedestrian accident cases, we will fight fiercely to get you the compensation you deserve to move forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
For personal injury claims resulting from a car accident, the statute of limitations in Georgia is usually two years from the date of the accident. This means you would have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party/parties. Failure to file within this time frame could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries. The statutes of limitations can vary depending on the jurisdiction of the accident.
