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 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

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 !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
This firm & the team are amazing! Attorney David Rubin, Michael, Lauren & Bobby are some of the best people! They are hardworking & caring.

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.
