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.
Cate has been amazing thru this whole process and i feel so luck to have her as my attorney. Anyone that i know that would need someone on their side i will automatically refer her. I cant emphasize on how appreciative i am towards her.
When I was injured in an automobile accident I called Motlick Personal Injury Law Firm. Attorney Cate Powell and her team took on my case and won. I am thankful that I knew which law firm to call. If you are injured in an accident, call Motlick!
Montlick & Associates is the best Law Firm. My experience with this Firm is so amazing!Expertise in an automobile accident. They handle my case with such professionalism. I would recommend them to anybody that is involved in a car accident. Thank you Montlick & Associates for being there for me. Thank you.
I'm glad I went with Montlick & associates. Thanks for the help and dedication. I finally got compensated for an auto wreck, and it was needed.
I had a terrible auto accident and I knew I made the right choice by calling Montlick& Associates. The time, dedication, and hard work that My attorney Douglas Glosser and his assistant Gia Conde emphasized were nothing short of amazing. My settlement exceeded my expectations. Im happy and crying tears of joy that not only my case but this chapter of my life is finally closed!
They were very experienced and cared about my needs and damages in the auto collision. I got way more than I expected and they spoke to me through the whole process.
We were in a terrible automobile accident. I'm suffering from a lot of pain and seeing doctors. Michael Moran and Valerie Harrison explained how our case would work. They actually called and checked on us. I know that they work with many clients, but I felt like I was their only client when they talked to me. That's a great feeling. Thank you Montlick & Associates for working with us!
Mike Moran of Montlick and Associates is a pro in every sense of the term. He represented me in a personal injury case stemming from an auto accident which caused me to have an extensive multi-layer lumbar fusion revision.He took on one of the largest insurance companies in the country and secured a six-figure settlement for me. I trust Mike completely and recommend him without reservation. There is no doubt in my mind that a less accomplished attorney would have settled for much less.In fact, I would welcome the opportunity to work with him anytime anywhere (let's just hope I don't need him again!).
I was in a automobile accident and Montlick & Associates are very professional in taking care of everything I needed to get me everything I deserve Nathan is very professional and very friendly with me and my family I would recommend Montlick&Associates to any one looking for a Attorneys Larry Moore
This the second time I have used Motlick & Associates. The first time was for an an auto accident. Michelle Mumpower was my attorney for this case. The insurance to cover this type injury was not enough to cover medical injury and lost wages. Miss Michelle got every possible penny.The second time was a workmen’s complaint.My lawyer was FarisZejnelovic’s. After the interview Faris suggested that I wait until after decision was made if the company would pay for hip and knee. When workmen’s comp. refused to pay for hip surgery I hired Faris. He not only told me he had my best interest at heart more importantly he showed me. When ever a question came up about my case all it took was one call to either Faris or his assistant BrendaCampbell and the question or concern was immediately addressed. Resolving this injury was a lengthy process but Faris always kept me informed and had my interest at heart. When the time came to settling my case Faris negotiated a settlement through mediation that I have no doubt was the best amount I could have gotten. Even after my case was settled and I received my settlement Faris and Brenda reached out just to see how I was doing.I would recommend Motlick for any personal injury case. They don’t just care about the money but they truly care about the client personally.
Terrific Team Patrick and Toni! I was in an accident with an Uninsured Motorist and was facing medical bills and car repairs. Patrick handled everything so I didn’t have to worry about the added stress of paying hospital, doctor and surgery bills as well as getting my car repaired. He coordinated everything through my medical and auto insurance so at the end I received the maximum amount possible under my Uninsured Motorist coverage. The investigator on my case even contacted the Georgia State Trooper, who had taken the accident report, that he needed to follow up with the other motorist and ensure he was cited for driving without insurance.When I was contacted by Patrick about my settlement offer, I discovered he was actually on vacation and helping his daughter move into a Tiny House after her stint with the Peace Corps. I couldn’t believe he interrupted his vacation to take care of me and expedited my settlement check.Again, thank you to the Terrific Team of Patrick and Toni!! I will make sure I refer everyone that is need of a fantastic Personal Injury Attorney to Patrick and the firm of Montlick & Associates.Jennifer Rowe
I was in an automible accident and called Montick. I was referred to Sarah N. and have had professional results the entire time!!!! Every time I called I was able to talk to her or her associate. I am referring all whom ask where I went, to Montlick and Associates.
I HIGHLY recommend hiring Montlick & Associates if you're ever injured in an auto accident. In November 2017, I was in a bad rear-end collission going to a business appointment with a co-worker (who is also one of my dearest friends). We were stopped on Briarcliff Road in Atlanta waiting to make a left turn when a careless young teen was [guess what???] TEXTING while driving and she slammed right into us. The impact was so hard it nearly totalled the 2015 Toyota 4-runner we were riding in. Between the two of us there was a lot physical and emotional damage, requiring a lot of doctors visits and several years of physical therapy. Thankfully we are OK now. But going through it, the stress is not anything I would wish on ANYBODY! The team at Montlick and Associates, they were a real blessing to me and I can't thank them enough. When you factor in the emotional and financial toll that an accident takes, on top of all the medical treatments, physical therapy and trying to get fully back to work, it’s easy to see how I came to rely so heavily on them, and I am very grateful that they took care of what seemed like endless details, all the communications with the insurance companies, the back and forth negotiations, etc. When you are suffering and in pain, you need someone else to make sure everything is filed properly and that you get EVERYTHING that is owed to you. They took care of so many things I had no clue about prior to my case (like medpay, and collecting on uninsured motorist policies, and something else called diminished value claim which is completely separate from a property damage claim). The overall outcome was higher than I expected and I appreciated that the attorney and assistant were each very kind and always willing to answer my questions thoughtfully without making me feel stupid. Had I gone the DIY route, I am certain I would have ended up with a lot less money, a lot more mental anguish and more time spinning wheels. So I am very grateful and want to say well done and thank you Montlick and Associates from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me.
I am so glad I retained Montlick & Associates to help me after an automobile accident last year. The staff was attentive, compassionate and diligent in getting my claim resolved. I especially want to thank Jason Saltzman and Chris Ostolski for taking such good care of my case and being there for me whenever I had a question or needed reassurance. I highly recommend this firm, they are the best!!
I retained Montlick & Associates last September as a result of an automobile accident. I would like to sincerely thank and commend Attorney Aaron Monick and his legal assistant Ms. Sara Mata for doing a great job in handling my case. Telephone calls were answered or returned promptly; questions were always answered, and updates were always provided without having to request an update. Additionally, my case was settled in (my opinion) a short period of time at an amount that had me doing a "happy dance". I would wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone; as a matter of fact, I already have. Mr. Monick and Ms. Mata, again I thank you for your excellent service.
I love my experience with Montlick & Associates. I have had them handle a few cases for me. The love and care I experienced every time has been phenomenal. They make sure to keep u in the loop, advise u accordingly, always have someone there to answer ur calls & ur questions and do their best to fight for your rights. I’m grateful to have had such an amazing experience and phenomenal representation in my few cases. I’ve always come out better then I ever expect and they work fast compared to most firms. I would 1000% recommend them. I have used them for work injury as well as automobile injury and they have made sure I was well taken cared of every time. Thank you Alexander Tertichny and Michael Rubin and their ever so helpful staff. I honestly love u guys and will always refer others to you specifically before anywhere else.
Margaret Grenleski and the team at Montlick did a fabulous job of negotiating a settlement in an auto accident. I highly recommend them to anyone.
After an automobile accident that totalled my car while not being my fault, Craig Lachanse has always been interested and determined to help me through this dreaded process. I do not think I could have found anyone more helpful and concerned as he and his assistant, Ruth, have been through this entire incident.
I was involved in an auto accident with my 4 month old child, my child was unharmed, but I suffered a broken elbow and other minor bumps and bruises. I contacted Montlick & Associates and received great help from Mr. Rory Chumley. He and his associates in his office were very helpful at all points of dealing with my private insurance, as well, as the insurance of the other driver. I can say with full confidence that having Mr. Chumley as my attorney through this ordeal was the best decision for me and my family!I can't thank him enough!
Attorney j.Roth treated my case with respect. His staff focused on explaining the options I had to take care of my injuries I suffered in the auto accident. I trust his directions and his advices. MONTLICK and Associates have a jewel.
From the beginning to end my entire experience was awesome. I only delt with my attorney towards the end who was great as well. Jessica Cruz her assistant was excellent during the process. Answering all my questions and answer all my concerns. If I were to leave Ms Cruz a voice message she would always return my call in a timely manner, she was extremely polite and professional. I would recommend montlick and associates to everyone out the who has been injured in an automobile accident.
They helped me through the whole automobile accident claim for my kids and me. I am truly thankful for everything they did to help me. They check on you almost every week or you can reach them any day of the week and give you a status of your claim. Montlick and associates is a great company to see and help your case.
I have had a great experience with Montlick & Associates. I had not planned to use an attorney from my automobile collision, but after I realized that the insurance of the at-fault driver, was not going to be agreeable in resolving the situation, I went online to find information from the law firm that I remembered their commercials, Montlick & Associates. From my initial online chat, I knew this was going to be my law firm. Everyone was first concerned with how I felt. They were concerned enough to help me work through the pain, and gain clarity in a stressful situation. Once I had a chance to speak with Nora Jane Roberts-Williams, I knew everything would be just fine. She, and her assistant, Sarah McAllister, were courteous, professional, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient! Nora Jane listened, then thoroughly informed me of the process, went into action, and delivered! I did not have one stressful moment once Montlick & Associates was on the case. This is not something that I would want anyone to have to go through, but if and when they do, I will always recommend Montlick & Associates.Thank you all for being a team that gets the job done, and takes the time to care about your clients. Sincerely, Rhonda Byrd 3/17/17
Jason Saltzman and his whole team were excellent. They listen to every concern and always call to let you know how things are going with your case. Highly recommend to anyone who gets in an automobile accident or anything for that matter. So thankful for all their help and advice!

Holding negligent drivers accountable in Columbus

Driving Uninsured Happens More Than You Think

According to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, 82% of uninsured drivers cannot afford insurance. So what happens when one of those drivers injures you or your loved one?

Pursuing compensation

There are multiple strategies our attorneys may use when seeking compensation on your behalf. When referring to “uninsured” drivers, we also include “underinsured” drivers or those who are insured at the legal minimum amount. When a driver doesn’t have enough coverage to fairly accommodate the victims, Montlick investigates other methods of compensation. Methods could include:

  • A claim on your own insurance policy’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage
  • Other insurance policies that could also cover the accident
  • A court order instructing the other driver to pay you directly
  • A lien on the other driver’s house, car, or other property will remain until you’re paid


What you can do to protect yourself before an accident

Our attorneys highly recommend adding UMI (uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage) and/or Medical Payments Coverage (MedPay) to your own car insurance policy. In the event you’re hurt by an uninsured driver, or even injured in a hit-and-run accident, this additional coverage could significantly impact your recovery.

What You Need to Know About Hit-and-Run Crashes

While the criminal prosecution of a hit-and-run driver who hurt you might provide some relief for the victims, the civil justice system provides the primary venue for compensation. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against a driver who fails to remain at the scene of an accident might merit compensation for:

  • Property loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

What if the at-fault driver leaves and can't be located?

Although evidence gathered from the law enforcement investigation, witness observations, surveillance cameras, and other sources might facilitate a lawsuit against the at-fault party, many hit and run drivers are never located. We’ll explore the potential liability of third parties that might share fault for causing crash-related injuries. Potential third party defendants include:

  • Drivers of a vehicle not directly involved in the impact
    Companies that manufacture cars, vehicle parts, and auto systems
  • Car owners who lend their vehicles to drivers they should know have poor driving records
  • Businesses that employ drivers involved in crashes within the scope of their employment

If no responsible third party exists, hit and run victims still might have a right to pursue a claim if they have uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist coverage.

Montlick Can Help

When you or a loved one has been injured by a reckless, uninsured driver, we’re here for you.

Free Consultation

The laws of Georgia require a driver involved in a collision that causes injury or a fatality to remain at or near the accident scene. The parties must exchange:

  • Contact information
  • Vehicle registration numbers
  • Driver’s license information if requested by the other driver or an occupant of either vehicle

Motorists who disregard their legal duties by failing to remain at the accident site can face criminal prosecution. The consequences of a misdemeanor conviction of hit and run can result in:

  • A fine up to $1000
  • A maximum one-year term in jail
  • The potential loss or limitation of driving privileges
  • Imprisonment of one to five years if charged with felony hit and run
