Justice For Your Loved One

The unexpected death of a loved one is always tragic–and the trauma and grief only increase when the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence.

The unfortunate truth is that many fatal accidents are preventable. If someone in your family was killed in an auto accident, or by workplace negligence, aggression, or other actions by a third party, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. While of course nothing can truly compensate you for the loss of your loved one, a wrongful death settlement can help to ease the financial burden of your loss and hold the responsible parties accountable. 

Pursuing a legal claim is probably the furthest thing from your mind right now as you grieve your loved one. That’s why Montlick is here. Our compassionate attorneys handle all aspects of your case for you and ensure that your legal rights are protected, so you can concentrate on yourself and your family during this difficult time.

Thank you to Jeff and Chris for taking care of my dad's case so well, and thank you to Faris for bringing us to Montlick and helping with everything along the way! We really do appreciate you guys so much.

When I was involved in a Automobile accident, my wife said you have to called Montlick & Associates. That was the best called I have ever made. Attorney Jason took my case and he did an exceptional Job from start to finish. He kept me informed throughout the process. Thanks Montlick & Associates for providing excellent service.
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!
Michael Moran and his team took good care of me. They kept me in the loop of everything that was going on. All I did was do what they wanted me to do and kept them updated. I’m very satisfied with the outcome of my settlement. Thanks.
From day one to the end, I was kept informed about the status of my case. They answered all my questions I had and never made me feel that I was bothering them. I am very satisfied with the end result of my case and will recommend them to others. Thank you Attorney Jennifer and your Assistant Rachel for making me feel right at home as a part of the family. The Lord bless you both and your families in Jesus name Amen.
Mike Moran was very open and frank about how presented the case to me and his suggestion were on point. Thank you
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.
This is an amazing company! I couldn’t have chose a better attorney for this car accident.Thankyou Kaylee Wiley & Nives Juric ❤️

I'm a first time patron of Montlick and Associates and didn't really know what the process would be.

Thank you, Mr. Liu!

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.

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.

Generally, wrongful deaths can be divided into two broad categories:

Negligent Conduct: Normally, Georgia wrongful death law defines wrongful death in such cases as a fatality caused by the failure of an individual to exercise reasonable care. There are many types of unsafe behavior that can create hazards and cause accidents, such as car and truck accidents including distracted or reckless driving, construction accidents, negligence by healthcare providers,  slips trips and falls, accidents involving defective products, and more.

Intentional Misconduct: These cases typically involve criminal activity, such as murder, vehicular manslaughter, elder abuse and similar types of criminal acts that cause a fatality. When a wrongful death is the result of a criminal offense, the responsible party typically will face a criminal prosecution, but the civil process (what we do) provides an avenue for obtaining financial compensation for the victim’s family.

Who can bring a wrongful death claim?

Georgia wrongful death claims generally will be brought by a surviving spouse, or if there is no surviving spouse, the action may be brought by a surviving child. Even if a spouse brings the action, the proceeds of the wrongful death lawsuit also must be shared with children of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §51-4-2).

The percentages distributed between a surviving spouse and the children of the decedent depends on the number of children so you should ask an experienced Macon wrongful death attorney about the appropriate distribution in your case.

Finally, if there is neither spouse nor children of the deceased, the right to compensation goes to the decedent’s surviving parents and, if there are no living parents, then to the decedent’s estate.

Under Georgia wrongful death law, there are three general categories of damages that can be available in a legal action involving a fatal injury:

  • Medical, funeral and other necessary expenses stemming from the injury or death of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §51-4-5(b))
  • Full value of life of the decedent (O.C.G.A. §§51-4-2(a), 19-7-1(c)(1)).
  • Pain and suffering, medical bills and other damage arising between the time of injury and death (§9-2-41) (This portion of the wrongful death case is referred to as a “survival action.”).
