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 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.
Ellen Forrester and Nicole Casorio are the best in the business.Incredible professionalism, honesty and efficiency.Not only was Ellen 100% accurate on her assessment of my case, she was also a straight shooter.Nicole thank you for your patience and help in navigating this stressful process.10/10
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

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.

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.

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.

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.
