Want lawyers that care about you, put in the extra effort, and get the results you deserve? Then look no further because Montlick has your back.When I was taking an Uber to see my girlfriend back in 2021, our car was flipped upside down by a unregistered driver. The difference between life and death was 15 feet of guard rail. We all thankfully survived, but the car was totaled and I'm still left with injuries from my whiplash. The cops didn't care because they are overworked/undervalued, the EMTs didn't care because we were not in critical condition, insurance companies were doing everything in their power not to pay out (even though we were the victims) and onlookers moved on without haste.When I called Montlick on a Sunday, he picked up right away and got us the support we needed. They treated me with dignity and respect. Without that support, my Uber driver would not have been able to support his kids and get a new car. They got us results without question. If you're hesitating to sign up with Montlick because of the bad reviews, then I would consider giving them a call to at least hear their perspective and see how they can help you. They are some of the nicest people around (and I don't usually say that about lawyers haha).If you ever become the victim of an accident, then you should call Montlick immediately. They get results and they care about you/your case.
Everything happen just the way nathan my lawyer told me it was moving slow at first and I was getting worry but he assured me that it will start to move fast after a wile and before I know it he got me a great settlement that will change my life.I just want to thank Nathan from the bottom of my hart great job and I will all ways tell my family and friends to use MONTLICK INJURY ATTORNEYS they are # 1 in my book

Hello Jason, thank you for your time today. Although we are not processing a case, you took the time to explain the information, give clear examples and showed compassion. This tells me there are people who believe in great service and do what they say they're going to do. I wish you all the best. :)- Gina
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.
When I was injured in an automobile accident I called Motlick Personal Injury Law Firm. Attorney Cate Powell and her team took on my case and won. I am thankful that I knew which law firm to call. If you are injured in an accident, call Motlick!
This review is to you to my two favorite attorneys Ellis Cliu and Ben Copeland at Montlick & Montlick. I express my most sincere thanks for the most professional representation. I am grateful for your support. You have stuck by me through the year in dealing with this very stressful case.I admire your composure, work ethic and most of all your excellent representation. I appreciate you guys more than you will ever know. If anyone of you ever needs an attorney 👀look no further. These 2 are your guys.👏👏🤝🏆🏆🏆⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We Protect You from Powerful Insurance Companies

Electric scooter collision victims and their families are usually at a significant disadvantage after being involved in an e-scooter accident caused by a negligent driver or company.

The initial few days following an e-scooter accident can be painful and emotionally overwhelming. Insurance companies understand how to capitalize on victims’ trust and their lack of experience and knowledge of the electric scooter accident claims process.

The goal of insurance companies, as for-profit corporations, is to grow revenues and increase profitability by collecting monthly premiums while their representatives and claims adjusters work hard to delay, minimize claims or deny them altogether.

Avoid a Costly Mistake

Insurance company representatives work for the insurance company, not for you, regardless of how sympathetic they may be to your situation. In fact, insurance accident claims representatives often push accident victims to agree to a ‘recorded statement’–when the insurance company records telephone conversations when speaking to e-scooter accident victims or their families– in an attempt to solicit information they can later use against the claimants. Some insurance representatives even use those recorded statements out of context in order to accomplish this goal. As a result, some injury victims who directly communicate with insurance carriers, or submit to recorded statements without a lawyer present unwittingly jeopardize the value of their claims.

Another frequent mistake made by electric scooter accident victims is settling their case before knowing the full extent of their injuries and medical needs. Consequently, accident insurance companies do not want you to communicate with or retain an experienced personal injury attorney, because their own industry research shows that they pay out much more money to accident victims who have lawyers.

What is My e-scooter Accident Case Worth?

E-scooter accident laws generally allow accident victims to recover financial damages from those responsible for their injuries or the tragic death of their loved ones. Our attorneys pursue all types of economic damages to which our clients are entitled according to state law.

Some examples of the types of damages plaintiffs can pursue may include the following:

  • Past, present and future medical bills
  • Past, present and future lost wages
  • Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive Damages in the event of willful, wanton or reckless conduct
  • Loss of consortium
  • Monetary compensation for emotional distress
  • Wrongful Death Damages, including loss of the decedent’s experience, knowledge, judgment, care, companionship and protection, financial services, and future income as well as burial/medical expenses, and mental anguish suffered by the surviving family.

The value of a personal injury claim depends on numerous factors. Examples include:

  • The strength of liability
  • The facts and circumstances of the incident,
  • The strength of the applicable law and evidence
  • The venue or locality where a claim must be brought
  • The likeability and credibility that witnesses would have to a jury
  • The extent of a plaintiff’s injuries
  • The costs of medical treatment – including past and future impact on the quality of life
  • The extent of pain and suffering
  • Whether the plaintiff is temporarily or permanently disabled

The amount of economic damages an e-scooter accident victim might recover is specific to the facts and circumstances of a given case. As such, each individual claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount you and your family could recover from an accident claim is generally not possible at the beginning stages of your case. However, our lawyers are able to counsel and advise our clients on the range of predicted e-scooter accident case values, once all of the crucial evidence has been collected, 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, state and federal laws, and the strength of the evidence.

Our E-scooter attorneys fight hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the monetary value of their claims in accordance with local, state, and federal law.

IMPORTANT!

Failing to comply with a statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to compensation.

Legal Deadlines You Should Know

The amount of time you have to file a claim, also known as the “statute of limitations” for personal injury cases and wrongful death cases is, in most states, generally two years from the date of the e-scooter accident. However, this can vary state-to-state. Additionally, there are exceptions in any state that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline.

For example, certain types of accident claims against governmental entities as well as claims against the federal government can have much shorter deadlines. In some cases, a combination of different types of legal claims may exist that involve different time frames, which may be due to multiple defendants and/or even the laws of more than one jurisdiction.

Our experienced e-scooter attorneys can examine the facts and circumstances relevant to your case to determine which statute of limitations (deadlines) apply. We take the required actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.

More Time Constraints

In addition to legal time deadlines, there are several other reasons not to delay in seeking legal advice and assistance. Many injured people are surprised to learn that their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts, sometimes the policies of household family members) can contain valuable insurance coverage, such as, for example, Medical Payments coverage (“MedPay”), Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”), or Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.

It is critical to keep in mind that insurance policies typically have timely notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, can result in a denial of coverage.

New Technology = New Problems

Electric scooters (also known as E-scooters and “dockless scooters”) are a newer method of transportation made available in a majority of U.S. cities. E-scooter companies such as Lime and Bird have invested millions of dollars in e-scooter “pay-per-use” services as an alternative to walking to and from the office, school, or grocery store. E-scooters are designed to “fill the gap” between using a privately owned car and public transportation when traveling between home and work. E-scooters are a budget-friendly option compared pricier services such as Lyft or Uber.

However, electric scooters can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, making them a danger to pedestrians and riders. Most states have passed laws that ban the use of electric scooters on sidewalks. However, electric scooter operators have to decide whether to ride illegally on sidewalks or put themselves in danger by integrating into the traffic flow. In either situation, someone may get badly injured or killed.

Emergency rooms are witnessing more and more individuals injured from e-scooter accidents — either from being struck by e-scooters or crashing on the e-scooters. Moreover, parking lots and public sidewalks are littered with these vehicles causing potential obstructions to cyclists and wheelchair users. Several cities have instituted bans on e-scooters in an attempt to restore order.

With over 40 years fighting for the rights of accident injury and wrongful death victims, Montlick has the dedication, experience, and resources to manage your case with competence and professionalism to help you recover the monetary compensation you and your family deserve. Our compassionate e-scooter accident attorneys understand the significant hardships that injury victims and their families endure after being involved in electric scooter accidents caused by others’ negligence. Our law firm is committed to providing exceptional client service.

The large incidence of injuries and deaths from the use of E-scooters has raised public awareness, including an increased amount of claims against the companies. User agreements that Lime and Bird use are resoundingly favorable to the companies, with the intent of shielding themselves from products liability claims that allege the scooters are defective in some way, or that the companies has failed to warn consumers of limitations to the scooters. However, these agreements may not necessarily be enforceable, depending on the location where a given incident occurred. Moreover, users have sustained injuries from numerous issues associated with problems with the devices, such as, by way of example, faulty brakes, or that the company has been unclear to the public of the maximum speed of the scooters when traveling down inclines.

Since dockless scooters are mostly being used in urban areas with significant motor vehicle traffic, many accidents are also being caused by negligent drivers. These types of accidents have raised questions as to whether users should be on the roadway or the sidewalk, or should be treated legally as pedestrians or other motorists or bicyclists. Regardless, if you have injured because a negligent driver while riding a deckles scooter, you can pursue a claim against the negligent driver. Additionally, your own auto insurance (if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage) can provide coverage for your accident as well.

Injury plaintiffs injured in scooter accidents can, under the law, pursue claims for valuable compensation, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, Pain and Suffering and more.
