Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Helping Macon

Dedicated, Experienced, and Ready to Fight For You

The best time to seek help after a pedestrian injury is now. 

Hit-by-car (pedestrian) accidents often come with catastrophic, expensive, and sometimes fatal injuries. Insurance companies often fight aggressively against pedestrian accident claims. Because of the high financial and human costs that come with pedestrian accidents, insurance companies often argue that the accident was the injured pedestrian’s fault.

If you were struck by a motor vehicle while walking outside of a crosswalk, for example, it is likely that the insurance company will try to minimize your settlement as to pay you as little as possible, or even nothing at all. Our experienced lawyers know how to combat these kinds of arguments. We work hard to prove your case and get you the financial compensation you deserve. No pedestrian case is too challenging for our talented team of lawyers.

Make your first call the right call

Our Macon personal injury lawyers draw on our experience successfully representing individuals struck by cars since 1984. We understand the ways careless and distracted drivers threaten the safety of pedestrians, and we hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they cause. Let us get you the money you deserve and justice for your injury.

They kept in touch with me about every aspect of my case. I knew they were working for my benefit.
The staff are courtesy and the attorneys work hard on your behalf. In addition, they keep you abreast of the status of your case.
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!
Hey everyone alyssa is the best lawyer I have ever had. She works fast and has everything organized. If you are having trouble looking for a lawyer no problem call Alyssa Martin she’s the best!!!!
Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter
On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.
I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.
I hired Mrs. Forrester for my case last year in May and they got me settled for more money than I ever thought!!! Very professional and prompt with call backs my overall experience with them was amazing!! Mrs. Foresster and Ms. Julie Vaughn was the sweetest and most hard working lawyers there is I have already referred them to my sister and will continue to recommend them to all my friends and family!!
Spectacular Service! Attorney Glosser and Gia worked countless hours on my case. Very pleased with the outcome!
Thank you Jason and Kalana for working on my son's case. No one else would take this case because it was so difficult and you guys worked hard on making sure that he got his settlement. I wish I could give you guys a hundred Stars because that's how amazing you are thanks again.
I came to Montlick because of a minor accident I had on slingshot. Nothing is too big or too small for this law firm. I must say. It has been a pleasure working with Sarah and her asst Christopher. They were very professorial. And got right on the case. They always kept me informed every step of the way. Very satisfied customer! Thx again! 😊
Definitely the best! They worked hard for me and I really appreciate them.
This is from Terri Dodd a friend of mine and client of Motlick and Associates. She would like to express her sincere appreciation to Scott Patterson and his team for their remarkable work on her personal injury case. They have given 100% attention to her needs and concerns, and their work has been exemplary. She and I both highly recommend anyone and everyone searching for legal assistance to contact Montlick and Associates.
Montlick & Associates, Attorneys are outstanding. When a hit a run driver rear-ended my car, I called the law firm, and they worked on my case from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them if you have legal matters.
Best attorney I've worked with
I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.
Excellent as always. This is the second case that has been worked out for me. Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark have always gone above and beyond. Thank you so much.
Awesome people to work would recommend them to anyone who needed an attorney

Macon Pedestrian Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

Get the Money You Deserve

Battling Big Insurance After Injury

Insurance companies have one priority: themselves. Although a personal injury or wrongful death claim can provide necessary compensation for pedestrians who suffer injuries and their families, insurance companies utilize various strategies to derail such claims for financial recovery. The companies routinely blame victims for causing their own injuries, frequently arguing that a pedestrian darted into traffic without warning or using a crosswalk, so the at-fault driver couldn’t avoid the collision.

Our Macon pedestrian accident lawyers anticipate these tactics and know how to effectively fight these defenses on behalf of our clients.

Avoid a Costly Mistake

Trying to take on the insurance companies (even your own) without an experienced personal injury attorney could cost you significant money in the long run. Make sure you’re getting the most money in your pocket. Call Montlick.

Injury & Wrongful Death Attorneys

Duty of Care

The duty of care imposed on drivers of motor vehicles is generally higher than on the pedestrian because the failure to drive safely poses a more significant risk of injury to other people.

Do You Have a Case?

What if I was jaywalking when I was hit?

Even if you were walking outside of a crosswalk, you could still receive financial compensation after an injury.

In personal injury cases, Georgia uses a rule called “comparative negligence.” This means that even if a judge or jury decides you were partially at fault for your injuries you could still get financial compensation, it will just be reduced by the percentage that was deemed your fault. For example, if you are entitled to $100,000 but it was determined you were 30% at fault for the accident, your final compensation would be $70,000. However, under Georgia’s negligence laws, a pedestrian injury victim will be barred from any recovery if the judge or jury finds the pedestrian 50% or more at-fault.

As with any other legal matter, there are many exceptions, and that is why it is so important to discuss your specific case and unique circumstances first with a Montlick personal injury attorney.

We Know How to Get Pedestrian Accident Victims Paid

In the legal world, “damages” refers to the remedy that a plaintiff (injured party) seeks from the defendant (at-fault party). Typically in personal injury cases, this is in the form of a sum of money. Although the specific damages recoverable will depend on the circumstances of the accident, money can be awarded for several types of damages, including the costs of medical treatment, lost income (past, present and future), emotional anguish and pain and suffering, wrongful death damages (burial and funeral expenses), punitive damages, and more.

What are punitive damages?

Punitive damages are meant to go above and beyond to punish the defendant for their wrongful conduct and deter others from engaging in similar behavior in the future. Under Georgia law, punitive damages are only awarded in cases where the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious, reckless, or intentional. To be awarded punitive damages, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant acted with malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression, or willful misconduct. Examples of behavior that may warrant punitive damages include: Intentionally causing harm to the plaintiff, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, engaging in fraud or misrepresentation, engaging in reckless conduct that puts others at risk of harm or acting with a conscious disregard for the safety of others.

Known for its rich Southern charm, Macon is filled with historical wonders. From the Ocmulgee National Monument to the Tubman Museum, Macon is a cultural hub of Georgia. Walking along the streets inspires wonder and reconnects you to the American past. Unfortunately, distracted drivers are still active on the same streets, and one fatal mistake of theirs can lead to a devastating future for you.

While any driver that is not paying attention, obeying the rules of the road or driving in a prudent manner might strike a pedestrian, some of the most common types of driving conduct that lead to pedestrian accidents include:

  • Fatigued and drowsy driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Multi-tasking (i.e. distracted driving)
  • Entering a crosswalk without stopping at a stop sign or traffic light
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to drive at a safe speed
