“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!®”
Our car accident injury and wrongful death lawyers work hard to maximize our clients' case values, according to Georgia law. The initial days after a serious motor vehicle accident caused by someone else's negligent are usually stressful. At the beginning stages of the car wreck insurance claims process, you might not understand the full extent or the nature of your motor vehicle accident-related personal injuries, let alone the actual monetary value of your auto accident claim. Most car accident victims do not know how valuable their rights are in personal injury cases, or the true amount of compensation that they should receive under Georgia Law. Moreover, insurance companies take advantage of a car accident victims' lack of experience with the car accident insurance claims process to minimize or deny claims. This is how insurance companies save money and boost profits for shareholders every year.
Insurance claims adjusters typically try to talk accident injury victims into accepting financial compensation early, before the claimant understands the actual value of their car accident claim, and prior to receiving a free, valuable legal advice from an experienced car accident lawyer. This is because once the car wreck claim is settled, the claim may not be reopened, even if the car accident victims finds our later that their auto accident-related injuries require additional expensive medical treatment, and that their overall injury-related damages are more severe than they had previously understood. Montlick & Associates work hard for every client to recover the economic compensation to which they are entitled under Georgia law.*

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims
Automobile accident claimants typically have many legal and medical issues to cope with, such as pain, rental car reimbursement, property damage, disability, lost earnings, and costly medical treatment – all while stressing about when can they return to work.
The car accident insurance companies' primary mission, as for-profit companies, is to collect customer premiums while paying out the least amount of compensation possible on car accident insurance claims. Auto accident insurance adjusters typically accomplish this mission by delaying, reducing, and denying accident claims. In fact, adjusters will try to conduct recorded interviews of auto accident victims in an attempt to record any damaging comments or statements that they can use in order to do so. Insurance claims adjusters even try to persuade claimants to avoid talking about their case with an experienced car accident lawyer, because their own industry studies show that insurance companies often pay out much more monetary compensation to personal injury claimants who have retained legal representation (see more on this below).
One study published 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 an experienced accident lawyer in your Americus car accident case may substantially improve your chances of obtaining the compensation that you or your loved one's case deserves.
How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Georgia Accident Victims
We Get to Work Fast! Once our lawyers advise you of your legal rights and after you have selected our firm to handle your accident case, our legal professionals will promptly begin working your accident case, and we will take the critical steps to protect your rights. Let our law firm worry about your legal issues, so that you and your family can focus on getting well.
We Assume the Financial Risk: No Fee Or Costs Unless You Win! We represent clients in their car accident injury and wrongful death cases on a “contingency fee” basis. This legal fee arrangement means that our 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.
Overcoming Insurance Company Traps: Accident insurance claims adjusters may, in the beginning, seem helpful and very sympathetic, but they are not on your side. Accident insurance companies negotiate thousands of motor vehicle crash claims each year and they utilize tactics, strategies, and techniques to diminish, delay, and even deny financial payouts. Unfortunately, many automobile accident claimants who speak directly with insurance companies risk damaging the monetary value of their car wreck claims. For example, an auto accident claimant might agree to give a recorded statement without having legal representation, and unknowingly disclose damaging information about their collision or make statements that can be taken out of context to deny or reduce the value of their claims. Another common mistake made by some personal injury claimants is settling their accident claims before they know the full nature and extent of their crash-related personal injuries and other compensatory damages. Due to the complexities of Georgia Car Accident Law, many auto accident victims often commit other tactical missteps.
Our auto accident attorneys have the resources, the experience, and the manpower necessary to navigate the insurance company's traps on behalf of our clients and negotiate against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Assessing the Value of Your Car Accident Injury Claim: Evaluation of an auto accident claim with personal injuries or wrongful death involves not only the calculation of motor vehicle repair expenses, medical bills, rental car reimbursement, and lost wages, but also the difficult-to-value intangible financial damages, such as mental anguish, diminished earning capacity, punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant punitive damages), and pain and suffering. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience necessary to determine the true value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of collisions. When appropriate, our auto accident injury law firm may also conduct research into settlements and verdicts involving similar types of accident cases in comparable jurisdictions to determine a predicted range of case values.
Navigating Legal Complexities: While many motor vehicle accident cases often settle out of court, when litigation is unavoidable, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, evidentiary rules, case law, court rules, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our attorneys and support professionals are educated, trained, and experienced with the nuances of Georgia auto accident law, and how to navigate the complex personal injury claims process. We work 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. That 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 hardworking automobile accident lawyers are here to review the circumstances and facts relevant to your motor vehicle accident injury claim to determine which statute of limitations (filing deadlines) apply. We take the essential actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.
In addition to Georgia’s critical legal time deadlines, there are many other crucial reasons for not delaying in seeking legal assistance and advice. Most injured people are surprised to find out that many times their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts sometimes those of a household 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 also 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 meeting crucial legal time deadlines and special notice requirements, there are many additional reasons to act without delay. By way of example only, with the passage of time auto accident witnesses can become difficult to find, or eyewitnesses might forget important accident details. Other times, important evidence can be destroyed or disappear.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?
Georgia car accident law usually permits car crash injury victims or family members who tragically lost loved ones in fatal automobile accidents to recover economic and non-economic damages from negligent drivers and companies who are responsible for the accident. Negligent parties may include individuals, public utilities, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or in concert with each other.
Our wrongful death and personal injury lawyers work hard to obtain all types of monetary compensation that our clients are entitled to obtain 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
- 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 full value of the life of the decedent and burial expenses.
- The value of a 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 someone is temporarily or permanently disabled
The amount of compensation an auto accident injury victim could obtain in the State of Georgia is specific to the facts and circumstances of their traffic accident case. As such, every car crash claim is different. Predicting the exact dollar amount that you and your family could receive from a car accident case is typically not possible at the beginning stages of am auto accident case. However, our Georgia lawyers are able to advise our clients on a predictable range of potential auto accident case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we know the full extent, nature, and long-term effects of the car accident injuries, we have examined all medical records and bills, and we have reviewed the applicable Georgia laws, and understand the strength of the evidence.
Our lawyers work hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the monetary value of their claims according to Georgia car accident law.

Our Promise to You

Protect you from powerful insurance companies. One of the first things the car accident insurance adjuster will often say is that you do not need an attorney. That is because the insurance company's primary goal is to pay accident victims as little money as possible. And they understand that injured people get substantially more money with an experienced 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.
Analyze your case at no charge to you. We will evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect your legal 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 Georgia personal injury lawyers. Or use our 24/7 online chat right here on our website.
Vigorously fight on your behalf in order to obtain all the compensation and benefits you deserve. There's always a lot at stake after a serious injury, and when our clients rely on us for help, we never take that situation lightly. We work extremely hard, and we will always do the right thing when it comes to our clients.
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."
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.
