Scott Patterson was extremely helpful in our settlement for a horrible car accident I was involved with, would definitely use him again if ever needed. His team is hands down very professional and helpful during the whole process. 10/10 would recommend.

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.

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.

On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates

Since Covid, I’ve been in 3 hit-and-run accidents in which neither were my fault. I had a different attorney represented me in the first accident who was not very attentive nor responsive to my numerous calls and questions. For my second and third accident, I decided to go with Montlick and Associates, specifically Attorney Cate Powell. Cate, returned my call; she listened, took notes, allowed me to vent about chronic pain I was experiencing and after finding out that the other driver almost got out of paying the liability claim due to a technicality, Cate assured me that she had everything under control. Unlike my first attorney, she not only provided updates but she checked on my recovery as well; and if she was unable to personally update me, she allowed her team to provide an update. Cate is a fighter for her clients, she even dealt with my insurance to ensure that I received everything that was owed to me. And she also represented my husband as well. She is now someone I trust wholeheartedly, and if I ever have a legal matter, I can call her for help and if she can’t represent me, she will certainly point me in the right direction.So, if you’re ever in an accident and seeking legal representation, and need a no-nonsense attorney, call Attorney Cate Powell because I am telling you from experience – she would be your one call that would fully represent you. Trust me!

Truck Crash Injury Lawyers for Macon

How a Lawyer Can Help You

How We Handle Truck Cases

Find out just a few of the many steps our attorneys take to ensure your truck collision case is as strong as possible.

Truck Crash Investigations

After a truck accident, preserving evidence is critical to winning your case. Trucking companies are notorious for sending their own investigators to the accident scene. Often, critical evidence–whether by intention or accident– is destroyed during this process. Armed with their own team of lawyers, the trucking company is near impossible to take on without your own legal team. When you call Montlick, we take all necessary steps—including investigating the scene, getting court-mandated preservation of evidence and more—to ensure the evidence you need to win is preserved, safeguarded, and leveraged.

Evidence we gather can include:

Preservation of the vehicle: Preserving the truck involved in the accident is essential. The vehicle should be kept in the same condition as it was at the time of the accident. It is crucial to ensure that the vehicle is not repaired or put back into service until it has been thoroughly examined by an expert.

Electronic data: Commercial trucks are equipped with electronic devices (black boxes) that record various data, including speed, braking, and other information. This data is critical in determining the cause of the accident. It is essential to preserve this data, which can be downloaded from the vehicle’s electronic control module (ECM).

Maintenance records: Maintenance records can provide vital information about the truck’s condition at the time of the accident. This includes information about the vehicle’s brakes, tires, and other mechanical systems. It is essential to obtain and preserve these records quickly as they can help determine if any maintenance issues contributed to the accident.

Insurance documents: Insurance documents are also crucial in preserving evidence in truck accident cases. These documents can provide information about the trucking company, the driver, and the coverage that is available. It is important to obtain and preserve these documents as they can help determine liability and damages.

Consequences of a Truck Crash

The effects of a truck accident can be long-lasting, and it’s essential to understand how these accidents impact those involved.

Physical Injuries Truck accidents often result in severe physical injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burns and more. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, often including surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. Victims may need to take time off work to recover, or lose their ability to work altogether, which can result in lost income and financial hardship.

Emotional Trauma Truck accidents can also cause emotional trauma, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Victims may experience flashbacks of the accident or have trouble sleeping, eating, or functioning in their daily lives. This emotional trauma can make it difficult to work, maintain relationships, and enjoy life.

Financial Losses Truck accidents can also result in significant financial losses for those involved. Medical bills can quickly add up, and victims may also face other expenses, such as vehicle repair or replacement costs. If a victim is unable to work due to their injuries, they may also lose income and struggle to pay bills.

Loss of Life In the most severe cases, truck accidents can result in fatalities. When a loved one is killed in a truck accident, family members may be left with significant emotional trauma, financial hardship, and the burden of funeral and burial expenses.

Common Injuries in Commercial Truck Accidents

Head Injuries: Head injuries are common in truck accidents. These injuries can range from concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries that can have long-lasting effects on a victim’s life.

Spinal Cord Injuries: The impact of a truck accident can cause damage to the spinal cord, which can result in paralysis, loss of sensation, and other complications.

Broken Bones: The force of a truck accident can cause victims to suffer multiple fractures, which can require surgery, immobilization, long periods of recovery, and ongoing pain.

Burns: Fires and explosions are common in truck accidents and can result in severe burns that require extensive medical treatment.

Soft Tissue Injuries: Soft tissue injuries such as bruises, strains, and sprains are also common in truck accidents and can cause pain and limited mobility.

Emotional Trauma: Truck accidents can also cause emotional trauma, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The Danger of Semi Trucks on Macon Roads

Truck accidents are a common occurrence in Macon, Georgia, and can result in a wide range of injuries for those involved. The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks make them more dangerous than other vehicles on the road, and accidents involving these vehicles can cause severe injuries and even fatalities.

Even when you’re doing your best to drive safely around big rigs, the danger looms immense. With America’s truck driver shortage, the average long-haul trucker drives 60 hours per week and covers more than 107,000 miles per year. And a lot of those miles are through country roads like the ones that wind through Bibb County.

Unlike a typical crash between two drivers, an accident with a truck means you could have lawyers from one or several companies trying to get you to settle for less than you deserve. When your daily commute, a road trip, or just a casual summer drive turns into a nightmare after a collision with a big rig, you need a law firm who knows what it takes to win.™  You need Montlick.
