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.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy & Cate at Montlick, and I can't recommend them enough! From the moment I reached out for a consultation to the resolution of my case, the team displayed utmost professionalism, empathy, and expertise. Every question was answered promptly, and I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and dedication to my case was evident, and it truly felt like they went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. It's clear that this firm not only has a deep understanding of the law but also a genuine commitment to their clients' well-being. If you're in need of legal assistance in Georgia , Montlick & associates should be your first call. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their exceptional service!
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.
Both Sarah Root (attorney) and Chris Gladys (legal assistant) were great with communicating and advising as they worked through my case. One, if not both, checked in and explained things at every step of the entire process. They were not only great at explaining what was going on, options, and the legality of every step and choice, but always friendly and professional. I greatly appreciate the guidance, and effort they put into my case.
Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.
Good Day Ms. Claudia Turner and Ms. Kim Jacobsen. Your team worked to assist me with my accident. I thank GOD that it gives a person like you who look out for people like me. I truly found my Angel. I will tell everyone if they need someone in their corner MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES you can trust to go the extra mile.Thank you again Ms. Claudia TurnerA Very, Very Greatful Client.Vanetta C. Stockfisch
I love this law firm so much I’m so glad I chose them. When montlick & associates first took my case I explain to them what I was looking for and needed, once I was placed with my attorney Ms Nives Juric, she got to work on my case and communicated every step of the way she explained everything to me, I’m so glad I chose montlick & associates to represent my case.BEST ATTORNEY 😍😍
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.
If you or your love ones ever need an accident attorney, I recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys. Nick and his team were great, and was very attentive to my son’s needs. Nick worked hard to get my son a nice settlement to get back on his feet after his traumatic accident. We are are ever so grateful!
Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.
Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.
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.

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.

Causes of Macon Pedestrian Accidents

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.
