They kept in touch with me about every aspect of my case. I knew they were working for my benefit.
The staff are courtesy and the attorneys work hard on your behalf. In addition, they keep you abreast of the status of your case.
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!
Hey everyone alyssa is the best lawyer I have ever had. She works fast and has everything organized. If you are having trouble looking for a lawyer no problem call Alyssa Martin she’s the best!!!!
Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter
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.
I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.
I hired Mrs. Forrester for my case last year in May and they got me settled for more money than I ever thought!!! Very professional and prompt with call backs my overall experience with them was amazing!! Mrs. Foresster and Ms. Julie Vaughn was the sweetest and most hard working lawyers there is I have already referred them to my sister and will continue to recommend them to all my friends and family!!
Spectacular Service! Attorney Glosser and Gia worked countless hours on my case. Very pleased with the outcome!
Thank you Jason and Kalana for working on my son's case. No one else would take this case because it was so difficult and you guys worked hard on making sure that he got his settlement. I wish I could give you guys a hundred Stars because that's how amazing you are thanks again.
I came to Montlick because of a minor accident I had on slingshot. Nothing is too big or too small for this law firm. I must say. It has been a pleasure working with Sarah and her asst Christopher. They were very professorial. And got right on the case. They always kept me informed every step of the way. Very satisfied customer! Thx again! 😊
Definitely the best! They worked hard for me and I really appreciate them.
This is from Terri Dodd a friend of mine and client of Motlick and Associates. She would like to express her sincere appreciation to Scott Patterson and his team for their remarkable work on her personal injury case. They have given 100% attention to her needs and concerns, and their work has been exemplary. She and I both highly recommend anyone and everyone searching for legal assistance to contact Montlick and Associates.
Montlick & Associates, Attorneys are outstanding. When a hit a run driver rear-ended my car, I called the law firm, and they worked on my case from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them if you have legal matters.
Best attorney I've worked with
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. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. 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.
Excellent as always. This is the second case that has been worked out for me. Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark have always gone above and beyond. Thank you so much.

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.
