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.
Awesome people to work would recommend them to anyone who needed an attorney
I worked with Scott Patterson and he was great! His sense of urgency and attentiveness made me feel valued as a client!
My grandson was in a bad accident on August 5 and MONTLICK & Associates was the lawyer ever for him we would like the good work they’ve done

Beware of Insurance Tactics

For 39 years, Montlick’s pedestrian accident attorneys have fought for pedestrians, joggers, rollerbladers and walkers who are injured by unsafe drivers of cars, trucks, tractor-trailers, busses and other motor vehicles.

Insurance companies aggressively fight against pedestrian accident claims because the injuries are usually very serious and costly, and they want to maximize their profits. One of their most common tactics is to suggest that the pedestrian, not the driver, caused the accident. If you were struck by a motor vehicle while jaywalking, it is almost certainly the case that the insurance company will contend that your violation of law, rather than the conduct of the driver, caused your pedestrian accident injuries. Montlick knows how to anticipate and effectively counter the shady strategies auto insurance companies employ after pedestrian accidents, so our clients get the justice they deserve.

Why You Need a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents can result in serious, and even life-threatening injuries. Injured victims of such accidents generally require costly, long-term medical care, and suffer extraordinary financial hardship. Retaining an attorney to pursue your claim can be a critical step to obtaining compensation for your injuries. For example, at-fault drivers in pedestrian accidents typically blame the victims for causing the accident in order to avoid liability and corresponding criminal charges. In turn, insurance companies will often initially attempt to speak with victims in an effort to obtain information to deny or minimize their claims. Our attorneys shield our clients from such insurance traps and pitfalls.

Additionally, pedestrian accident victims may not realize that their own auto insurance policies could provide additional uninsured/underinsured motorist as well as Medical Payments (MedPay) and/or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage for their injuries. Our attorneys work to identify all viable avenues of recovery, and in the past, we have been successful in discovering additional defendants and insurance policies that our clients were not aware of, or that other insurance companies did not disclose. Our attorneys work hard on behalf of each client to maximize the value of their cases under the law.


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

Legal Time Deadlines to Know

Statute of limitations set forth the number of years, starting from the date of the accident, in which a victim or the family of the victim may bring a personal injury or wrongful death case, whichever may apply. The amount of time a person has to resolve or file a lawsuit for a personal injury claim varies from state to state. Warning: there are also exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline! By way of example only: certain types of pedestrian accident claims against state or federal government entities can have much shorter deadlines. In some pedestrian accident cases, there could be a combination of different types of injury claims that may involve different time frames, multiple defendants, and/or the laws of more than one jurisdiction. Also, in some states, the statute of limitations could be extended when the personal injury case involves a minor child.

While there are many causes pedestrian accidents, some of the most common include the following:

  • Drivers whose mental and/or physical faculties are impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding particularly in high pedestrian traffic areas
  • Tired or fatigued drivers
  • Roads without pedestrian safety features like longer lights, middle islands and frequent crosswalks
  • Drivers rushing through intersections to “beat the light”
  • Poorly designed pedestrian crossings
  • Using cell phones to call or text particularly around intersections, school zones, bus stops and commercial businesses

Although many types of pedestrian accidents are caused by unsafe driving, the failure of public entities to design roadways and intersections with pedestrians in mind also plays a significant role in causing pedestrian accidents nationwide. A Montlick pedestrian accident lawyer could also pursue a legal claim against the appropriate public entity when an unsafe design or neglected road maintenance contributes to a pedestrian accident.

Because public entities have sovereign immunity, special procedures, and timing requirements must be met when suing a municipality or other government entity for injuries or death suffered in a pedestrian accident. Our experienced pedestrian accident attorneys may be able to guide you through these special requirements so that you do not undermine your accident claim.

I was cited for jaywalking when I was injured as a pedestrian. Do I still have a case?

Pedestrians are generally at a significant disadvantage after a collision with a vehicle. The lack of protection for a pedestrian often means that the pedestrian suffers more severe injuries and needs to be removed from the scene of the accident for medical care. In these cases, the police who arrive at the scene might only get one side of the story from the at-fault driver, and may even cite the pedestrian if they were not in a crosswalk at the time of the accident. A citation does not necessarily prove liability and even if you were cited, you could still have a viable pedestrian accident case. Call a Montlick attorney as soon as possible to discuss your rights and options for pursuing compensation.
