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.

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.
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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers After a Pedestrian Accident

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.
