I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.
Cate has been amazing thru this whole process and i feel so luck to have her as my attorney. Anyone that i know that would need someone on their side i will automatically refer her. I cant emphasize on how appreciative i am towards her.
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!
Montlick & Associates is the best Law Firm. My experience with this Firm is so amazing!Expertise in an automobile accident. They handle my case with such professionalism. I would recommend them to anybody that is involved in a car accident. Thank you Montlick & Associates for being there for me. Thank you.
I'm glad I went with Montlick & associates. Thanks for the help and dedication. I finally got compensated for an auto wreck, and it was needed.
I had a terrible auto accident and I knew I made the right choice by calling Montlick& Associates. The time, dedication, and hard work that My attorney Douglas Glosser and his assistant Gia Conde emphasized were nothing short of amazing. My settlement exceeded my expectations. Im happy and crying tears of joy that not only my case but this chapter of my life is finally closed!
They were very experienced and cared about my needs and damages in the auto collision. I got way more than I expected and they spoke to me through the whole process.
We were in a terrible automobile accident. I'm suffering from a lot of pain and seeing doctors. Michael Moran and Valerie Harrison explained how our case would work. They actually called and checked on us. I know that they work with many clients, but I felt like I was their only client when they talked to me. That's a great feeling. Thank you Montlick & Associates for working with us!
Mike Moran of Montlick and Associates is a pro in every sense of the term. He represented me in a personal injury case stemming from an auto accident which caused me to have an extensive multi-layer lumbar fusion revision.He took on one of the largest insurance companies in the country and secured a six-figure settlement for me. I trust Mike completely and recommend him without reservation. There is no doubt in my mind that a less accomplished attorney would have settled for much less.In fact, I would welcome the opportunity to work with him anytime anywhere (let's just hope I don't need him again!).
I was in a automobile accident and Montlick & Associates are very professional in taking care of everything I needed to get me everything I deserve Nathan is very professional and very friendly with me and my family I would recommend Montlick&Associates to any one looking for a Attorneys Larry Moore
This the second time I have used Motlick & Associates. The first time was for an an auto accident. Michelle Mumpower was my attorney for this case. The insurance to cover this type injury was not enough to cover medical injury and lost wages. Miss Michelle got every possible penny.The second time was a workmen’s complaint.My lawyer was FarisZejnelovic’s. After the interview Faris suggested that I wait until after decision was made if the company would pay for hip and knee. When workmen’s comp. refused to pay for hip surgery I hired Faris. He not only told me he had my best interest at heart more importantly he showed me. When ever a question came up about my case all it took was one call to either Faris or his assistant BrendaCampbell and the question or concern was immediately addressed. Resolving this injury was a lengthy process but Faris always kept me informed and had my interest at heart. When the time came to settling my case Faris negotiated a settlement through mediation that I have no doubt was the best amount I could have gotten. Even after my case was settled and I received my settlement Faris and Brenda reached out just to see how I was doing.I would recommend Motlick for any personal injury case. They don’t just care about the money but they truly care about the client personally.
Terrific Team Patrick and Toni! I was in an accident with an Uninsured Motorist and was facing medical bills and car repairs. Patrick handled everything so I didn’t have to worry about the added stress of paying hospital, doctor and surgery bills as well as getting my car repaired. He coordinated everything through my medical and auto insurance so at the end I received the maximum amount possible under my Uninsured Motorist coverage. The investigator on my case even contacted the Georgia State Trooper, who had taken the accident report, that he needed to follow up with the other motorist and ensure he was cited for driving without insurance.When I was contacted by Patrick about my settlement offer, I discovered he was actually on vacation and helping his daughter move into a Tiny House after her stint with the Peace Corps. I couldn’t believe he interrupted his vacation to take care of me and expedited my settlement check.Again, thank you to the Terrific Team of Patrick and Toni!! I will make sure I refer everyone that is need of a fantastic Personal Injury Attorney to Patrick and the firm of Montlick & Associates.Jennifer Rowe
I was in an automible accident and called Montick. I was referred to Sarah N. and have had professional results the entire time!!!! Every time I called I was able to talk to her or her associate. I am referring all whom ask where I went, to Montlick and Associates.
I HIGHLY recommend hiring Montlick & Associates if you're ever injured in an auto accident. In November 2017, I was in a bad rear-end collission going to a business appointment with a co-worker (who is also one of my dearest friends). We were stopped on Briarcliff Road in Atlanta waiting to make a left turn when a careless young teen was [guess what???] TEXTING while driving and she slammed right into us. The impact was so hard it nearly totalled the 2015 Toyota 4-runner we were riding in. Between the two of us there was a lot physical and emotional damage, requiring a lot of doctors visits and several years of physical therapy. Thankfully we are OK now. But going through it, the stress is not anything I would wish on ANYBODY! The team at Montlick and Associates, they were a real blessing to me and I can't thank them enough. When you factor in the emotional and financial toll that an accident takes, on top of all the medical treatments, physical therapy and trying to get fully back to work, it’s easy to see how I came to rely so heavily on them, and I am very grateful that they took care of what seemed like endless details, all the communications with the insurance companies, the back and forth negotiations, etc. When you are suffering and in pain, you need someone else to make sure everything is filed properly and that you get EVERYTHING that is owed to you. They took care of so many things I had no clue about prior to my case (like medpay, and collecting on uninsured motorist policies, and something else called diminished value claim which is completely separate from a property damage claim). The overall outcome was higher than I expected and I appreciated that the attorney and assistant were each very kind and always willing to answer my questions thoughtfully without making me feel stupid. Had I gone the DIY route, I am certain I would have ended up with a lot less money, a lot more mental anguish and more time spinning wheels. So I am very grateful and want to say well done and thank you Montlick and Associates from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me.
I am so glad I retained Montlick & Associates to help me after an automobile accident last year. The staff was attentive, compassionate and diligent in getting my claim resolved. I especially want to thank Jason Saltzman and Chris Ostolski for taking such good care of my case and being there for me whenever I had a question or needed reassurance. I highly recommend this firm, they are the best!!
I retained Montlick & Associates last September as a result of an automobile accident. I would like to sincerely thank and commend Attorney Aaron Monick and his legal assistant Ms. Sara Mata for doing a great job in handling my case. Telephone calls were answered or returned promptly; questions were always answered, and updates were always provided without having to request an update. Additionally, my case was settled in (my opinion) a short period of time at an amount that had me doing a "happy dance". I would wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone; as a matter of fact, I already have. Mr. Monick and Ms. Mata, again I thank you for your excellent service.
I love my experience with Montlick & Associates. I have had them handle a few cases for me. The love and care I experienced every time has been phenomenal. They make sure to keep u in the loop, advise u accordingly, always have someone there to answer ur calls & ur questions and do their best to fight for your rights. I’m grateful to have had such an amazing experience and phenomenal representation in my few cases. I’ve always come out better then I ever expect and they work fast compared to most firms. I would 1000% recommend them. I have used them for work injury as well as automobile injury and they have made sure I was well taken cared of every time. Thank you Alexander Tertichny and Michael Rubin and their ever so helpful staff. I honestly love u guys and will always refer others to you specifically before anywhere else.
Margaret Grenleski and the team at Montlick did a fabulous job of negotiating a settlement in an auto accident. I highly recommend them to anyone.
After an automobile accident that totalled my car while not being my fault, Craig Lachanse has always been interested and determined to help me through this dreaded process. I do not think I could have found anyone more helpful and concerned as he and his assistant, Ruth, have been through this entire incident.
I was involved in an auto accident with my 4 month old child, my child was unharmed, but I suffered a broken elbow and other minor bumps and bruises. I contacted Montlick & Associates and received great help from Mr. Rory Chumley. He and his associates in his office were very helpful at all points of dealing with my private insurance, as well, as the insurance of the other driver. I can say with full confidence that having Mr. Chumley as my attorney through this ordeal was the best decision for me and my family!I can't thank him enough!
Attorney j.Roth treated my case with respect. His staff focused on explaining the options I had to take care of my injuries I suffered in the auto accident. I trust his directions and his advices. MONTLICK and Associates have a jewel.
From the beginning to end my entire experience was awesome. I only delt with my attorney towards the end who was great as well. Jessica Cruz her assistant was excellent during the process. Answering all my questions and answer all my concerns. If I were to leave Ms Cruz a voice message she would always return my call in a timely manner, she was extremely polite and professional. I would recommend montlick and associates to everyone out the who has been injured in an automobile accident.
They helped me through the whole automobile accident claim for my kids and me. I am truly thankful for everything they did to help me. They check on you almost every week or you can reach them any day of the week and give you a status of your claim. Montlick and associates is a great company to see and help your case.
I have had a great experience with Montlick & Associates. I had not planned to use an attorney from my automobile collision, but after I realized that the insurance of the at-fault driver, was not going to be agreeable in resolving the situation, I went online to find information from the law firm that I remembered their commercials, Montlick & Associates. From my initial online chat, I knew this was going to be my law firm. Everyone was first concerned with how I felt. They were concerned enough to help me work through the pain, and gain clarity in a stressful situation. Once I had a chance to speak with Nora Jane Roberts-Williams, I knew everything would be just fine. She, and her assistant, Sarah McAllister, were courteous, professional, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient! Nora Jane listened, then thoroughly informed me of the process, went into action, and delivered! I did not have one stressful moment once Montlick & Associates was on the case. This is not something that I would want anyone to have to go through, but if and when they do, I will always recommend Montlick & Associates.Thank you all for being a team that gets the job done, and takes the time to care about your clients. Sincerely, Rhonda Byrd 3/17/17
Jason Saltzman and his whole team were excellent. They listen to every concern and always call to let you know how things are going with your case. Highly recommend to anyone who gets in an automobile accident or anything for that matter. So thankful for all their help and advice!

Compassionate in practice

We know how overwhelming the aftermath of a car crash can be. That’s why our attorneys always treat our clients with compassion and respect. Ever wished you had a lawyer in the family? Now you do.

Uber & Lyft Crash Injury Attorneys

The Answer to Your Accident 

Rideshare services have become a necessity for many in daily life. Uber, Lyft and other similar services provide convenience for users and income opportunities for drivers. Similarly-structured startups such as Grubhub, Uber Eats, Doordash, and Favor have also expanded into other sectors of the gig economy, such as food or package delivery services, and even helicopter services in major cities.

While ridesharing has its benefits, the rideshare accident claims process isn’t one of them. Because multiple parties are involved in these accidents (the rideshare driver, the rideshare company, and the passenger/s and more), when accidents or assaults happen in these circumstances, the way forward for those hurt is not always clear.

Whether you were the driver, a passenger, or just another car on the road, we can take care of the insurance and legal battles for you, so you can focus on healing.

Don’t leave your financial future up to chance.

Driver Injuries and Workers’ Compensation Claims

Rideshare drivers who are injured while working for a rideshare company may find that they are denied workers’ compensation benefits since rideshare companies generally classify their drivers as independent contractors.

Private insurance companies are becoming more reluctant to honor injury claims arising from rideshare drivers since their motor vehicles are used for commercial purposes and are not declared on the accident insurance policy. This can leave injured drivers, passengers, and pedestrians without any insurance coverage while driving for or using a ridesharing service.

Workers’ compensation, rideshare and insurance law is complex. If you are a rideshare driver who has been injured in an accident, call Montlick today for your free consultation and speak to a qualified attorney who can advise you on your situation.

How Does Rideshare Insurance Work?

Another serious concern with rideshare services is that the companies often do not provide insurance coverage for their drivers. Additionally, private insurance companies can often avoid paying accident injury claims when their policyholder fails to disclose that their private vehicle is being used as a rideshare or delivery service.

While rideshare drivers should purchase the appropriate business auto insurance coverage, most drivers fail to purchase this type of coverage, putting themselves and their passengers at risk. Insurance coverage issues pose severe legal and financial hardships when victims are injured or killed in rideshare accidents, and there is no insurance coverage to pay claims.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a rideshare accident, our experienced personal injury attorneys can help. We fight hard to get the maximum financial recovery for our rideshare accident clients.

The Complexity of Rideshare Laws

Uber is the largest and fastest growing rideshare company in the country. This rideshare program allows users to download an app and order a driver “on demand.” Rideshare passengers can choose the type of vehicle and review a driver’s rating prior to accepting the ride. Rideshare drivers use their own private vehicles to pick up riders. While ridesharing services provide an alternative to taxicab services and public transportation, they present new legal issues, including workers’ compensation issues, insurance gaps, and low insurance coverage limits. Some passengers involved in accidents while riding in rideshare vehicles may find themselves at risk of not being sufficiently compensated for their injuries and damages.

In one important wrongful death case, an Uber driver struck three pedestrians, tragically killing a six-year-old girl. Uber stated that it was not responsible for the fatal accident since the Uber driver was not transporting a passenger at the time of the collision, even though the driver was using the Uber app at the time of the accident and was waiting to be dispatched to a job. The victim’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming Uber ignored the driver’s prior conviction for reckless driving.

This ridesharing accident case illustrates the troubling legal issues concerning rideshare company liability and insurance coverage issues. Moreover, many rideshare apps terms of service require passengers to agree that they will not file a lawsuit against the rideshare company in the event of a crash during the ride. In another Uber accident, the passenger who sought compensation for medical expenses from Uber discovered that coverage was denied because the rider agreed not to file suit against Uber, and the driver was the sole party responsible.

What to Do After a Rideshare Accident

If you or a loved one have been harmed in an accident or assault that involved a rideshare app or driver, gather evidence at the scene, obtain medical attention, and then contact us for your free consultation at 1-800-LAW-NEED®.

When you or a loved one have been harmed in a traffic collision or assault, it is important to follow these steps. In some circumstances, a victim may not be able to follow these action steps due to their medical condition. The most important action auto accident victims should take is to seek medical attention immediately after an accident to treat and document their injuries.

The following steps may help you protect your valuable and important legal rights:

  1. Remain calm. One of the first things you must do after an accident is to remain calm.
  2. Check yourself and all of your passengers for injuries. Check yourself and everyone in your vehicle for serious or life-threatening injuries. All injured people should remain in the vehicle until emergency services arrive. A significant number of injuries caused by auto accidents are not immediately noticeable. For example, many accident victims sustain head injuries that leave them feeling that they have a headache. However, a headache could mean there is a more serious injury. A lot of pain is masked due to adrenalin and the initial shock that follows a motor vehicle accident. For this reason, it is a good idea to either ride in an ambulance or ride in a private vehicle (if the injuries are non-life threatening) to the closest emergency room.
  3. Call 911. It is important to call 911 as soon as possible. It is necessary to have law enforcement and emergency medical services at the crash scene to assist the injured and for law enforcement officials to open an accident report. If you are a rideshare passenger, it is critical for you to be listed in the accident report.
  4. Photograph the scene. Taking as many pictures of the accident scene as possible is crucial, including photos of the skid marks and the surrounding area of the road or intersection. Only take photos when able to do so safely.
  5. Exchange contact information with all drivers involved in the crash. Following an accident, you need to obtain the other driver’s name, address, telephone, insurance carrier, and insurance policy number. Collect the contact information from all passengers and witnesses.
  6. Find all eyewitnesses. Next, find all eyewitnesses and collect their full names, addresses, telephone numbers, license plate numbers, and email addresses.
  7. Never apologize or admit fault for causing the accident. It is crucial that you do not apologize for the accident, as this could be seen as an admission of guilt.
  8. Contact Montlick. Call us to discuss your case and to help you collect the necessary evidence.
  9. Call your auto insurance company. After an accident, it is required that you contact both your auto accident insurance company and the at-fault driver’s insurance company. This call should be conducted with your attorney present. Provide your auto accident insurance company with the name, address, insurance policy, and telephone number of the other drivers involved.

Ride Share Accident Legal FAQs

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.
