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.

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
I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Alyssa and Antonia was very professional and helpful when working on my case I highly suggest this law firm.
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.
I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.
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!
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.
I recently had the pleasure of working with the law firm of Montlick and Associates. I was very impressed with their professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance
Great company . Fast results . I worked with Nick Vacino. He was a pleasure to work with .
Catherine Powell is one of the best lawyers I know out here work hard for you to get the truth and try to close your case as soon as possible when she says she’s gonna handle it and get it done she does it I really appreciate you more than my case and I thank you from the bottom of my heart Rita Cross
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
Amazing people to work with. They will do everything to make their clients happy.. Working with them I felt safe in the right hands. I will recommend Attorney Nives Juric to everyone and of course the most kindest person her assistant Krystal Rivera.
I had an excellent experience working with Ms.Alyssa White and Ms.Antonia Morris on my case! They were very professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend Montlick & Associates to everyone!!!
I had an excellent experience working with Enrique Fernandez on my case. He was always efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Mr. Fernandez and Montlick & Associates to anyone who has been involved in a personal injury matter.
NivesJuric was my Injury Attorney at Montlick Injury Attorneys.She Is the best Injury law attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, she explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when communicating the outcome of my law suit.If you're seeking legal help, call NivesJuric today.Anthony

I highly recommend them. All members of my team worked diligently on my case. I was being bullied by the adjustor from Geigo who was so mean-spirited. I called Montelick and my case wa wrapped up in 9 months. I am very satisfied with results.
The best attorneys i have ever came across.I had an work related injury and we all know how workers comp works either way David Rubin and Mike Bish helped me every step of the way an made sure i had everything i neeeded, They even performed a Christmas miricale and made sure i recieved my settlement a week before christmas and after being out of work for 10 months that was truly a blessing. I would recommend them any day bc they are the absolut best.
My experience with Nives Juric and Krystal Rivera, was amazing. To start, I was not sure that I was doing right thing, however after my initial conversation with Nives, I knew that having Nevis representing me was best decision I made.Krystal was very instrumental in putting everything together. she left no stone unturn. from fact finding to gathering information, most important of all, she made me feel very comfortable when I was asking questions. let me tell you I ask a lot of question.I would highly recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys and having Nives Juric and Krystal Rivera, working to have them be a part of your team should you ever need an injury attorney.
They kept me updated and worked with me to answer any and all questions I had.I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and anyone needing any of the services they offer.Thank you again for all of your help.

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
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.
