I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Montlick from start to finish. I know for a fact that I would have had so much more pain and stress if it weren't for their handling of my case. Alyssa White and Antonia Morris handled everything with expert care. They were very communicative as well - any time I had a question it was answered immediately. I am so glad I made the right decision to call them when I needed help. I cannot recommend them enough!
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
Attorney Cate Powell and Team Amy Jones are the best ever ❤️ they truly care about my husband and I .
This was my first experience with an attorney but couldn’t imagine my case going any smoother from start to finish. Montlick & Associates took great care of me and I definitely recommend.
This is by far the absolute best Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia. My attorney, Nick Vocino, who’s extremely brilliant, exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, efficient, effective, and prompt has handled two car accident cases for me resulting in very favorable outcomes. Nick Vocino and his staff possess the right combination of skills that you can trust to get the very best results. This firm has earned my most fervent and enthusiastic recommendation.
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
I'd recommend using Montlick and Associates. They are professional and I felt that I was treated fairly after I was assigned a new attorney. Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained his plan of action and it he took care of everything.

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!

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.
Sincerity speaks volumes to me and I can not say enough about the service and the genuine care that Montlick provided for my case. The entire process was smooth and went very well in my favor. I totally felt a sense of compassion from my attorney and his staff ... they really cared and had me in mind the entire time. I highly recommend this firm ... they are the best!
Mrs. Sara Root and her assistant Chris are the best..Mrs. Root is a very smart attorney she does her research and analyze everything about your case!! I had a spinal injury that resulted to surgery due to being rear ended in a car accident ..They kept me updated through every step..Chris called to check on me often and Mrs. Root made sure i understood everything..Yes i will have back pains in the future but she ensured that i was well compassionated for my life changes due to my injury.. I am so grateful to have had them during my recovery process. Thanks guys!..We met and talk about God m having faith and a connection! I give Montlick a 10 out of 10..I highly recommend them..Thanks to all that participated in making this process smooth and successful!! Awesome Awesome Awesome Team!!
We would highly recommend Montlick and Associates if you’re injured in an accident. The staff is very professional and kept us up to date as our case progressed. They check on you to make sure you’re ok. They just make the process easy. Thank you for taking care of us!

After decades of representing innocent drivers and passengers injured by reckless drunk drivers, we know that the road to healing is fraught with mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical wounds, and emotional scars that linger long after the crash.

When someone else’s careless decision upends your life, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the burdens alone.

Drunk Drivers are more likely to be uninsured and/or flee the scene

Although the arrest and conviction of a drunk driver who causes a collision typically provides a strong case for liability, DUI injury accidents raise other issues. Motorists that commit DUI are more likely to have no insurance or to flee the scene of an accident. Because many DUI offenders often have already received a suspension of their driving privileges, a significant risk exists that drunk drivers involved in collisions will be uninsured. Such individuals normally have no way to satisfy a judgment or settlement.

However, an injured person due to such circumstances who has uninsured motorist coverage, or lives with a family member who does, can receive compensation even if the drunk driver has no auto insurance, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. When an accident victim is hurt in a collision caused by an intoxicated motorist, our Macon drunk driver lawyers at Montlick consider all potential defendants, insurance coverage, and other sources of recovery.

Additional parties could also be held responsible

In addition to the intoxicated driver, other people or companies could also be held responsible and provide a source of financial recovery. Depending on the circumstances this could include a business that served a minor or “noticeably intoxicated” person (proving the requisite intent or knowledge can be difficult), the owner of a car who entrusts the vehicle to a person the owner should know is not a competent driver, drivers of other vehicles whose conduct played a substantial factor in causing the collision, employers of the driver if the person was acting in the scope of employment, manufacturers of defective vehicle components and automobiles and more.

Our Macon DUI accident attorneys at Montlick provide high-quality legal help to people who suffered injuries in accidents caused by others. We fight on behalf of each client to maximize the amount of financial recovery they receive so they can get the care they need and deserve free from financial anxiety.

Under the Influence

Drivers operated a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol more than a million times during the most recent year for which government data has been made available. Although many people focus exclusively on alcohol-impaired drivers, drugged driving plays a role in 16 percent of motor vehicle crashes. These drugs include illegal narcotics, prescription medications, and over-the-counter (OTC) medications.

Regardless of which intoxicating substance causes a motorist’s impairment, drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol can experience many diminished mental and physical abilities, such as:

  • Distorted vision
  • Slowed reflexes
  • Impaired judgment
  • Inflated impression of own driving ability
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Increased risk of engaging in other unsafe driving practices (e.g. speeding)

When these essential driving skills are compromised, the decision to drive places all others on the road in serious jeopardy. Because of the well-established knowledge of the impact of alcohol and drugs on driving ability, a drunk driver causing an accident exhibits the type of egregious conduct that often merits punitive damages. Intoxicated drivers do more than make a mistake, constituting mere negligence. They decide to climb behind the wheel despite the significant risk of causing a traffic collision that results in serious injury.

Being in an accident with a drunk driver can bring up a lot of question and issues, but you don’t have figure them out on your own. Montlick is here to provide peace of mind and give you the compensation you deserve.

The Scope of DUIs in Georgia

DUI continues to be the most common cause of fatal motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Drunk driving accounts for approximately a third of all traffic-related fatalities.

Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol cause the death of approximately 10,000 people annually and inflict injury on many more. Lawmakers and traffic safety experts have employed a multitude of strategies to curtail the drunk driving epidemic. While these efforts have generated progress, intoxicated drivers continue to inflict an enormous toll in the form of bodily injuries and wrongful deaths.

A glimpse at data involving alcohol and drug impaired driving reveals the scope of the problem:

  • Motorists with a BAC of .08 percent (the legal limit for DUI in Georgia) are eleven times more likely to be involved in a fatal collision than a driver who has not consumed alcohol.
  • Two out of three people in the U.S. will be in an accident involving a drunk driver at some point during their lifetime.
  • Alcohol causes half of all teenage related driving fatalities.
  • Drugs other than alcohol (methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, etc.) are involved in nearly one in five fatal motor vehicle accidents
Frequently Asked Questions

All Your Questions, Answered

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.
