Our law firm works hard to maximize the monetary value of our clients’ cases by law. After a car accident caused by the unsafe driving of another motorist in Douglasville, you likely do not know the full nature of your injuries or the true monetary value of your motor vehicle accident claim. Car accident insurance adjusters commonly exploit this lack of experience in order to pay less on claims. However, once you or your loved one´s case is settled, it cannot ever be reopened, even if you discover later that your injuries are more serious than you believed initially. Our lawyers fight hard for each of our clients. We work hard to secure the maximum compensation that our clients are entitled to receive according to Georgia law.*
Montlick & Associates is a client-focused personal injury law firm. Since 1984, our legal professionals have been focused on our mission of providing exceptional legal service to each of our clients.

Our law practice is limited to personal injury law. Montlick & Associates understands that our attorneys are able to do the most exceptional job possible by focusing their law practice to one area of the law. Our law firm only represents injured people, never insurance companies or corporations.

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims:
Car collision claimants are usually at a disadvantage when injured in motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers. The initial days after an auto accident are often stressful and painful. You or family member can have many medical and legal issues to deal with, such as costly medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and even significant disability. Families are often inundated with medical debts, and other auto accident-related expenses that require payment, even when victims are unable to work.
Insurance claims adjusters know how to take full advantage of car accident victims’ lack of experience and knowledge of the auto accident injury and property damage claims process. As for-profit insurance companies, their ultimate goal is to take in premiums while paying out the least amount of money possible on motor vehicle accident and personal injury claims. They accomplish this mission by training their car accident claims adjusters to delay, diminish and deny payment on auto accident injury and property damage claims. Additionally, accident insurance agents often try to record interviews with car crash claimants in order to record statements the insurance company could use against them later. They do not want you to speak with an attorney about your case because their own industry research shows that they pay out much more money to personal injury claimants who have retained experienced legal representation (see more on this below).
One study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) showed that
- 85% of personal injury claim payouts from insurance companies went to personal injury claimants represented by legal counsel.
- Injured individuals who retained legal representation generally received substantially greater financial recoveries than unrepresented parties.
- On average, personal injury victims with lawyers received 300 percent more financial compensation than those who did not retain legal representation.
For these reasons alone, having experienced legal counsel by your side in your Douglasville auto accident case could significantly improve your chances of success and obtaining the full monetary compensation your case deserves.
How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Georgia Accident Victims
- We Get to Work Fast! Once our attorneys advise you of your legal rights and you choose our law firm, our legal professionals will work quickly to take the essential steps necessary to protect your valuable legal rights. Let us worry about your legal issues, so you and your family can focus on getting well.
- We Assume the Financial Risk: No Fee Or Costs Unless You Win! We handle personal injury cases on a “contingency fee” basis. This legal fee arrangement means that clients only owe legal fees and costs if our law firm is successful in obtaining a negotiated settlement agreement with the insurance company or defendant, or a judgment or verdict against the individual or company responsible for the crash, personal injuries, and other accident-related damages.
- Overcoming Insurance Company Traps: Insurance company adjusters and their agents often appear cooperative and sympathetic, but their primary objective is to profit by collecting premiums while paying as little as possible in claims. In other words, the insurance company’s financial interests are directly in conflict with the value of your claim and your financial interests.
Insurance companies manage a tremendous number of personal injury and wrongful death claims each year, and they have implemented effective strategies and tactics to reduce the amount they pay out on a claim. Unfortunately, claimants who talk directly with the insurance companies often unknowingly compromise the monetary value of their claims. For example, an unrepresented auto accident injury claimant can unintentionally reveal damaging statements or make comments that the insurance company can take out of context and use as negotiation leverage later, or even at trial if the statements are recorded.
Another common error made by many car accident claimants is settling their insurance claims too early, or before knowing the full extent of their crash-related personal injuries and other monetary damages. Doctors normally prescribe conservative medical treatment, such as physical therapy, to personal injury patients before they are able to clearly diagnose the injury, or recommend invasive medical procedures such as injections or surgery. If a person settles their claim before knowing what type of treatment is required for them to get well, they could severely undervalue their claim. Moreover, due to the complexities of Georgia law, many victims may also mistakenly commit other tactical missteps.
Assessing the Value of Your Accident Injury Claim: Evaluation of a personal injury claim involves not only the calculation of medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repair costs, but also difficult-to-value intangible damages, such as pain and suffering, diminished earning capacity, mental anguish, and punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant them). Our accident injury attorneys have the experience necessary to determine the actual value of personal injury and wrongful death cases. When appropriate, we also conduct research into settlements and verdicts involving similar types of cases in comparable jurisdictions in order to quantify a range of value.
Navigating Legal Complexities: While most traffic accident cases settle out of court, when litigation is required, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, evidentiary rules, court rules, case law, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our attorneys are trained, educated, and experienced with the nuances of the law and how to navigate the complex personal injury claims process. We fight hard to obtain all of the monetary compensation our clients’ cases deserve!
Legal Time Deadlines: Act Now to Preserve Your Right to Recover Maximum Compensation
All types of legal claims are subject to “statutes of limitations” or legal time deadlines.
WARNING: Failing to comply with a statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to a recovery.
According to O.C.G.A. 9-3-33, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is generally 2 years from the date of the accident. Warning: there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline! By way of example only, certain types of accident claims against governmental entities in Georgia as well as claims against the Federal Government can have much shorter deadlines and specific notification requirements. 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. A statute of limitations or legal time deadline may be extended when a minor is involved. Statutes of limitations also vary from state to state.
Our experienced traffic accident attorneys can review the circumstances and facts relevant to your claim to determine which statute of limitations (filing deadlines) apply. We take the required actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.
In addition to Georgia’s legal time deadlines, there are several other critical reasons for not delaying in seeking legal advice and assistance. Many injured people are surprised to learn that many times their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts sometimes those of a resident relative) can contain valuable insurance coverage, such as, by way of example only, Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage or Medical Payments Coverage (“MedPay,” an optional no-fault type of insurance that covers medical expenses). It is critical to keep in mind that insurance policies typically have timely notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, can result in the loss of valuable compensation and benefits.
There is more! In addition to notice requirements and legal time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without delay. By way of example only, with the passage of time witnesses can become difficult to locate, or they can forget important details. Other times, important evidence can be destroyed or disappear.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?
Georgia Car Accident Laws usually allows auto accident victims or the families who have tragically lost loved ones to recover economic and non-economic damages from negligent individuals or corporations who precipitated the collision and the victims´ losses. At-fault parties might include individuals, companies, public utilities, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or in concert with each other.
Our law firm is aggressive and we fight for all forms of damages that our clients are entitled to under Georgia law, including:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles and personal property
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive Damages if the defendant’s conduct rises to the level of gross negligence
- Loss of companionship, consortium and guidance
- Wrongful death/survival damages, including value of the loss of the decedent and burial expenses.
The value of an accident claim depends on numerous factors, including, by way of example:
- the strength of legal 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 client’s injuries
- the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life
- the extent of pain and suffering
- whether plaintiff is temporarily or permanently disabled
The total amount of economic and non-economic damages that an auto accident injury victim might receive in the State of Georgia is specific to the accident's facts and circumstances. As such, each auto accident claim is different. Predicting the exact monetary value, you and your family could recover from an automobile accident claim is usually not possible at the start of your auto accident injury or wrongful death case. However, our attorneys are able to advise our clients on ranges of predicted case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we know the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have assessed the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.

To Treat Your Case As If It Were Our Own. We'll treat you the same way we would want to be treated – as if it were our own case, or the case of a close friend or family member.
To Protect You From Powerful Insurance Companies. One of the first things the insurance adjuster will typically say is that you do not need an attorney. That's because the insurance company's goal is to pay you as little money as possible. And they know that injured people get substantially more money with an attorney representing them. With over 39 years of experience dealing with insurance companies, we can help you navigate through the insurance company minefields and avoid any traps.
To Analyze Your Case at No Charge to You. We'll evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect your rights, at no charge to you. We invite you to call us 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays to request a free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.

To Give Your Case Our Personal Attention. We tell our clients: "We want you to concentrate on getting well. We want to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns. We work for you, not the other way around."
To Promptly Return Phone Calls and Keep You Informed. We are sure you've heard about professionals who do not return phone calls. Or, perhaps you have spoken to people using other law firms who never knew what was going on with their case. That won't happen with us. We keep our clients well informed of important developments and routinely send copies of correspondence regarding their case.
Be There for You When You Need Us Most. When our clients first call us after a serious injury, they're understandably really worried. And we say to them, "You don't have to do this alone." We'll take on the insurance company for you and help you get the money you deserve for your medical treatments, lost wages, car repairs and pain and suffering. That's the kind of help we've been giving for over 39 years.
