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

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.
sandra sowers
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!
Earnest
Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!
Tonya Newberry

Daniels Ireti
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.
Alex McGee
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!
Traci Fields
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 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!!

When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

I cannot say enough good things about Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark at Montlick. They took an awful incident and walked me through the process of getting the care I needed and knowledge to help pay for expenses and get a reasonable claim to help me and my family. I have recommended them to others and definitely recommend them to those looking for an attorney that listens and treats you like a person.
Bea Moore
I couldn’t have chosen a better law firm to handle the case of my accident which was not my fault! Jason Saltzman was my attorney and he was amazing and he didn’t leave any stones unturned! He worked for the absolute most for me and got me the care I needed ! And Esmeralda, his senior legal assistant, was always there when I had questions and would always email me back very quickly if I had questions and she and Jason really put my mind at ease while going through all of this ! He got me the maximum of what I deserved and worked hard on my case! I’d give them 100 stars if I could because they are the best! I’d recommend them anytime any day for anyone who needs an attorney who cares and one that will answer you no matter what and answer any questions that you may have ! Thank you so much Jason and Esmeralda !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ashley Spell
Getting into a car accident is traumatic but, having Orlando Mara and Micheal Boyd handle my uninsured motorist case reduced my stress levels by a lot. They kept me up to date the entire time and very considerate of the outcome and settlement! I HOPE I never get into an accident again but if I do, I know who to call! Thank you all!
Tiffany McFarlane
I was injured in a car accident and Montlick and Associates truly delivered. My lawyer, Mike Moran, is knowledgeable and made sure I felt comfortable before making any moves. There was no money left on the table. He truly fights for his clients.Laura Gonzalez was my saving grace throughout this process. She answered all of my questions, and truly put my mind at ease. I can't thank them both enough!This was my first car accident and Mike and Laura did NOT disappoint!THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Morgan Kealy
After waiting 4 years to the day, my car accident case finally settled. William Parker, Jenna, and the entire Montlick staff were wonderful. They were great communicators , so I understood what was going on with my case every step of the way. I am so grateful to them for making a traumatic part of my life much easier to handle. I will definitely be recommending friends and family to them.
Shaneka Holmesdicks
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.
Sam S
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.
demetris burns
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.

Car Accident Lawyers for Savannah

The Clock Is Ticking for Your Claim

All types of legal claims are subject to legal time deadlines, also known as “statutes of limitations”

If you do not file your claim before the legal deadlines that apply to your case, you are giving up your rights to ever receive compensation for that accident and injury. According to Georgia code [O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33], the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is generally 2 years from the date of the motor vehicle accident, but there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline. For example, sometimes deadlines are extended when a minor is involved.

The legal time deadlines involved in your case are subject to state and local laws, and vary widely depending on the facts and circumstances of your particular situation. A Montlick personal injury lawyer can examine your unique accident during your free consultation, and advise you on which legal time deadlines apply to you.

Other Deadlines to Consider

In addition to Georgia’s legal time deadlines, there are several other critical reasons for not delaying in seeking legal advice and assistance.

Many injured people are surprised to learn that their own insurance policies can contain valuable insurance coverage, such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) or medical payments coverage (MedPay). It is critical to keep in mind that insurance policies typically have timely notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, can result in the loss of valuable compensation and benefits.

Evidence Preservation

In addition to legal notice requirements and mandatory time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without hesitation. For example, with the passage of time, accident witnesses can become difficult to locate or they might forget important details. Other times, critical evidence can disappear or be destroyed (it is standard for many security cameras to auto-delete after a period of hours or days).

Our legal team takes all steps to meet the many necessary time deadlines on behalf of our clients, and makes sure that all essential evidence is collected and preserved when appropriate.

The Value of a Case

Georgia car accident law generally permits personal injury victims of accidents to recover monetary damages from the individual or company responsible for their injuries and damages when someone has been negligent. Negligent parties can include individuals, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, public utilities, and other business organizations, either acting together with each other or alone.

Our hardworking attorneys pursue all forms of financial damages that our clients are entitled to receive under Georgia law. The value of an accident injury or wrongful death claim depends on numerous factors, including:

  • the strength of legal liability
  • the facts and circumstances of the incident
  • the strength of the applicable law and evidence
  • the extent of a client’s injuries
  • whether someone is temporarily or permanently disabled
  • the venue or locality where a claim must be brought
  • the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life
  • the extent of pain and suffering

Types of Compensation

The exact damages that are available to you will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case. However, some examples of the types of damages our personal injury lawyers have recovered on behalf of our Georgia clients include compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles and personal property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive Damages if the defendant’s conduct rises to the level of gross negligence
  • Loss of companionship, consortium and guidance
  • Wrongful death damages (when applicable)

Wrongful Death Claims

In cases of the tragic death of a family member, the surviving family member/s may be entitled to compensation for what is deemed the “full value of the life of the victim,” burial costs, medical expenses incurred prior to death, and more.

We know terms like the “value” of a life can feel extremely impersonal, even cold after your loss. However, these are the terms the courts and the insurance companies will use when determining your claim’s value. In fact, part of our job is to humanize you and your loved one to the companies making these judgements. We want them to see your loved one as the full person they were before they were unnecessarily taken from you, and help insurance adjusters or juries see the full impact of your loss.

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

The amount of monetary compensation an accident injury claimant recovers in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances of the accident and the facts of a given case. As such, every traffic accident injury claim is unique.

Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family will recover from a car accident claim is not possible at the beginning of your case. However, our experienced attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted accident case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we understand the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have evaluated the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.

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.

In Georgia, if you were partly at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, you can still recover compensation as long as a court finds you to be less than 50% at fault.
