“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 an accident caused by another's negligent or distracted driving are commonly stressful. At the beginning stages of the motor vehicle accident insurance claims process, you may not understand the full extent and nature of your car accident-related injuries, let alone the actual monetary value of your car accident claim. Most traffic accident victims do not know how valuable their legal rights are in personal injury or wrongful death cases, or the total amount of monetary compensation they could recover under Georgia Law. Moreover, insurance companies depend on an auto accident victims' lack of knowledge and experience in the car accident insurance claims process and use this advantage to minimize or deny the claims.
Car accident claims adjusters often try to persuade personal injury victims into accepting compensation early, before the claimant knows the actual value of their car accident claim, and prior to the claimant receiving a free, valuable legal advice from an experienced car accident lawyer. This is because once the auto wreck claim has been settled, the claim may not be not reopened, even when auto accident victims discover later that their accident-related injuries require additional expensive medical treatment, and that their overall injury-related damages are more severe than they had previously thought. Montlick & Associates works hard for each client to receive the maximum compensation to which they are entitled by Georgia law.*
Montlick & Associates is a client-focused law firm. Since 1984, our personal injury firm has been dedicated to our mission of providing exceptional service and representation to our clients.

We believe that our attorneys and legal support staff will do the best job possible for every client by limiting their law practice to only one area of the law. Montlick & Associates only represents personal injury and wrongful death victims, and our law firm never represents insurance companies or corporations.
Our Experience Pays!® Our law firm has been serving accident injury victims and their families for over 37 years. We work hard to obtain recover the monetary compensation our clients' cases deserve and our law firm has recovered billions of dollars for our clients.**

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims
Auto accident claimants typically have many medical and legal issues to deal with, such as a lack of transportation, disability, property damage, lost earnings, costly medical treatment, and pain and suffering – all while worrying about when will they be able to return to work.
The accident insurance companies' primary goal, as for-profit businesses, is to collect customer premiums while paying out the least amount of monetary compensation as possible on auto accident insurance claims. Accident insurance adjusters typically accomplish this mission by delaying, minimizing, and denying claims. In fact, car accident insurance claims adjusters will typically try to conduct recorded interviews of car accident victims in an effort to record any statements or comments that the insurance adjusters could later use against the claimant. Insurance companies will usually try to convince claimants to avoid talking about their claim with an attorney, because their own insurance industry research shows 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 experienced legal counsel in your Riverdale car accident case by a motor vehicle accident lawyer may substantially improve your prospects of success and obtaining the financial 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 valuable legal rights and after you have selected our law firm to handle your case, our legal professionals will immediately begin working your case and we will take the necessary actions to protect your legal 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 auto 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: Insurance claims adjusters may, at first, seem very sympathetic and helpful, but insurance adjustors are not on your side. Insurance companies negotiate thousands of motor vehicle accident claims each year and they utilized strategies, tactics, and techniques to delay, diminish, and even deny financial payouts. Unfortunately, many car accident claimants who talk directly with insurance companies by mistake, damage the monetary value of their car wreck claims. For example, an accident claimant might agree to provide a recorded statement without having legal representation, and unknowingly reveal damaging facts about their crash or make comments that may be taken out of context to delay, deny, or diminish payment on their claim. Another frequent mistake made by some personal injury claimants is settling their claims before they understand the nature and extent of their crash-related injuries and other damages. Due to the complexities of Georgia personal injury law, many car accident victims often commit other tactical missteps.
Our car accident lawyers have the experience, the resources, and the manpower necessary to navigate the insurance company's mine 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 automobile accident claim with personal injuries or wrongful death involves not only the calculation of vehicle repair costs, rental car reimbursement, medical bills, and lost wages, but also the difficult-to-value intangible financial damages, such as diminished earning capacity, mental anguish, punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant punitive damages), pain and suffering. Our Georgia personal injury lawyers also have the experience required to determine the actual value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of crashes. When appropriate, our accident injury law firm may also conduct research into verdicts and settlements involving similar types of cases in comparable jurisdictions to quantify a predicted range of values.
Navigating Legal Complexities: While many car accident cases often settle out of court, when litigation is unavoidable, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, court rules, evidentiary rules, case law, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our dedicated 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 fight hard to recover 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 auto accident laws usually allows car accident personal injury victims or family members who tragically lost loved ones in fatal accidents to recover economic and non-economic damages from negligent individuals and companies who are responsible for the auto accident. Negligent parties may include individuals, public utilities, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting in concert with each other or alone.
Our wrongful death and personal injury lawyers fight hard to obtain all forms of monetary compensation that our clients are entitled to recover according to 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 financial damages an automobile accident injury victim may receive in the State of Georgia is specific to the facts and circumstances of their accident case. As such, every auto crash claim is different. Predicting the exact dollar amount that you and your family will recover from an car accident case is usually not possible at the early stages of an auto accident case. However, our attorneys 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 understand the full extent, nature, and long-term effects of the motor vehicle accident injuries, we have reviewed all medical records and bills, and we have examined the applicable Georgia law, and the strength of the evidence.
Our lawyers work hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the value of their claims under Georgia car accident law.

Our Promise to You
Treat your case as if it were our own. We will treat you the exactly as we would want to be treated – as if your case were our own case, or the case of a close friend or family member.
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 37 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 37 years.
Always treat you with dignity and respect. Our promise is to operate at all times with honesty, integrity, high moral character and unquestionable ethics. And we'll treat you with kindness and give you and your family the dignity and respect that you deserve.
