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

Montlick and Associates at Executive Park in Atlanta, Ga have been the most professional and customer service oriented firm I've had the pleasure of working with despite the circumstance I was in. They were able to assist me with 1 case successfully in December 2019.I recently needed additional assistance in October 2023 for a 2nd case. This time Montlick and Associtates could not directly assist me due to the nature of my request, but they were able to point me into the right direction on where I can receive attorney services.That was such a huge relief! Thank you to Nick Vocino and his office and team!
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 !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Although the circumstances that led me to Montlick and Associates were not pleasant, this firm was a joy to work with. Nick Vocino and his team, especially "Amber Starks: ("AmberfromMrVocinosoffice"). They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. They paid close attention to items that I thought were "little things" and answered all of my concerns. They made my family feel important and treated us as such. Thank you for your hard work. I would certainly recommend this firm to others, especially my family and friends.
This firm & the team are amazing! Attorney David Rubin, Michael, Lauren & Bobby are some of the best people! They are hardworking & caring.

Savannah Pedestrian Crash Injury Lawyers

We Know What It Takes to Win®

Savannah’s cobblestoned historic district, Spanish moss-draped squares, and riverwalk make it one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the US.  Most residents and tourists walk through the sunny Savannah streets daily without issues. However, the risk of being struck by a vehicle while strolling through Savannah is always present with distracted, drunk, or reckless drivers on the roads.

When a Savannah pedestrian is hit by a motorist driving unsafely, the consequences can be devastating. Because pedestrians have no outside protection from injury, the life-altering damage of being hit by a car can cause significant breaks or wounds, permanent injury, disfigurement, disability, and even the need for long-term supportive care. Often those devastating injuries result in devastating financial consequences.

You shouldn’t have to pay for the harm a reckless driver caused in your life. When Montlick takes on pedestrian accident cases, we fight passionately on behalf of our clients.

Legal Time Deadlines

People who are injured in pedestrian accidents are encouraged to seek prompt legal advice because the statute of limitations imposes strict deadlines for initiating legal action. Generally, when a legal proceeding is not initiated within the time prescribed by the statute of limitations, the right to file a lawsuit seeking damages will be permanently forfeited. Delays in filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit arising out of a Savannah pedestrian accident also can result in evidence disappearing or witnesses becoming unavailable. Additionally, most insurance policies have timely notification deadlines that must be acted upon quickly. While we always recommend speaking to a Savannah personal injury lawyer if you or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian crash, we have provided some key information that pedestrians hit by motor vehicles need to know about their legal rights and remedies.

What is my Savannah pedestrian accident case worth?

The value of a claim and the precise types of damages will depend on a broad range of factors, but damages that are frequently available include:

  • Lost income during periods of disability
  • Costs associated with hospitalization and medical bills
  • Physical pain and mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship of a spouse or guidance of a parent
  • Death-related damages
  • Punitive damages (cases of reckless or outrageous conduct)
What is “negligence” in a hit-by-car accident?

All drivers have a duty to exercise ordinary care to avoid running over or striking pedestrians with a motor vehicle. This duty includes engaging in prudent driving practices and observing traffic safety laws. When drivers fail to exercise caution in areas where pedestrians are present, such as residential neighborhoods and school zones, the consequences can be devastating injuries for pedestrians. Motorists must comply with traffic safety laws and yield to pedestrians.

While careless driving practices, lack of attention and violations of traffic laws can constitute negligence, insurance companies often attempt to shift blame for a pedestrian collision to the injury victim. Careful analysis of law enforcement reports, the accident scene and witness statements by our Savannah pedestrian accident attorneys often allow us to refute insurance company claims that a pedestrian was negligent. Even if a pedestrian is partially responsible for causing his or her own injuries, the pedestrian might still be entitled to financial recovery.

How insurance companies try to get out of paying you

There are many defenses that insurance companies often use in defending their insured against liability claims arising out of pedestrian accidents. Some of the most common types of defenses include comparative negligence, darting pedestrian, the “last clear chance” doctrine and sudden emergency.

Insurance companies also may try to obtain damaging admissions, recorded statements or past medical records to diminish the value of a pedestrian accident claim. These types of strategies and defenses are highly fact-intensive, so you should seek a consultation with an experienced pedestrian accident attorney who is equipped to counter these arguments.
