The Top Four Reasons Why People Select Montlick & Associates:

“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!®

Our car accident wrongful death and injury attorneys fight hard to maximize our clients' case values under Georgia law.  The first few days following an accident caused by another's negligence are stressful.  At the initial stages of the car accident insurance claim process, you might not know the full extent or the nature of your accident-related personal injuries or the true value of your car accident case.  Most auto accident victims do not know how valuable their legal rights are, or the actual amount of compensation they could obtain under Georgia Law.  Insurance companies rely on an accident victims' lack of experience in the accident insurance claims process and use this advantage to unjustly delay, minimize, or deny their claims.

Auto accident claims adjusters usually try to persuade a personal injury victim into agreeing to monetary compensation early, before the claimant knows the actual value of their car accident claim, and before the claimant has obtained a free, valuable consultation from an experienced car accident attorney.   This is because once the car wreck claim has been settled, the claim or case may not reopened, even if the car accident victim finds out later that his or her auto accident-related injuries require additional medical treatment, or their injuries, and damages are more severe than they had previously believed. We know what our clients' cases are worth. Montlick & Associates work hard for every client to receive maximum compensation for which they are entitled in to under Georgia law.*  

Montlick & Associates is a service and client-focused law firm.  Since 1984, our personal injury law firm has been dedicated to our mission of providing exceptional service and legal representation to our clients.  We keep in close contact with our clients on a frequent basis, and we make sure that our clients are informed of all important case developments.  

Our law firm's law practice is focused exclusively on personal injury law.  We believe that our attorneys and legal support staff will do the best job possible for each client by focusing their law practice to only one area of the law.  Montlick & Associates only represents personal injury and wrongful death victims, and our firm never represents corporations or insurance companies. 

Our Experience Pays!® Our law firm has been representing personal injury victims and their families for over 38 years.  We fight hard to obtain the economic compensation our clients' cases deserve and our law firm has recovered billions of dollars for our clients over the years.

If you or a loved one have sustained personal injuries or if your family tragically lost a loved one in a motor vehicle crash caused by someone's negligence in Wilmington Island, Chatham County, Georgia, or anywhere in the Southeast, contact Montlick & Associates, Injury Attorneys, for your free consultation.  Our auto accident lawyers will help you understand your valuable rights as well as the steps necessary to protect those rights.  There are no fees unless we win.  Contact us Nationwide,  24/7 at 1-800-LAW-NEED (1-800-529-6333), or by simply dialing #WIN (#946) from your cellphone.

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims

Car crash claimants typically have many medical and legal issues to contend with, such as a need for transportation, disability, property damage, lost earnings, costly medical treatment, and pain and suffering – all while worrying about being able to return to work and earn a living.

The insurance companies' primary mission, as for-profit corporation, is to take in customer premiums while paying out the least amount of  monetary compensation as possible on auto accident insurance claims.  Auto accident insurance adjusters often accomplish this mission by unjustly minimizing, delaying, and denying claims.  In fact, car accident insurance claims adjusters will typically attempt to conduct interviews of car accident victims in an effort to record any statements that the insurance adjusters can use against the claimant.  Insurance companies will usually try to persuade claimants to avoid talking about their claim with an attorney, because their own insurance industry studies prove that insurance companies typically pay out much more compensation to personal injury claimants who have retained an attorney (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 attorney in your Wilmington Island car accident case may substantially improve your chances of winning your case and receiving 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 rights and when you pick our law firm to handle your case, our legal professionals will promptly begin working your accident case, and we will take the essential actions to protect your rights.  Let our law firm worry about your legal matters, 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 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 cooperative and sympathetic, but they are not on your side.  Insurance companies negotiate several thousands of accident claims every year and they use tactics, strategies, and techniques to delay, diminish, and even deny financial payouts.  Unfortunately, many auto accident claimants who speak directly with insurance companies  unknowingly damage the monetary value of their auto accident claims.  For example, a claimant might agree to provide a recorded statement without legal representation, and unknowingly divulge damaging facts about their accident or make statements that might be taken out of context by insurance companies to delay, diminish or deny payment on their claim.  Another common mistake made by some personal injury claimants is settling their claims before they know the nature and full extent of their accident-related injuries.  Due to the complex nature of Georgia personal injury law, many car wreck victims often mistakenly commit other tactical missteps.  

Our car accident lawyers have the experience, resources, and manpower necessary to navigate the insurance company 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 medical bills and lost wages, but also the difficult-to-value intangible compensatory damages, such as diminished earning capacity, mental anguish, punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant them), pain and suffering, and, in wrongful death cases, loss of the value of the victim's life.  Our Georgia personal injury lawyers also have the experience required to determine the true value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of crashes.  When appropriate, our law firm may also research verdicts and settlements involving similar types of cases in comparable jurisdictions to quantify a predicted range of case value.

Navigating Legal Complexities:  While many motor vehicle accident cases settle out of court, when litigation is unavoidable, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, court rules, case law, evidentiary rules, and applicable Georgia statutes.  Our hardworking lawyers and legal professionals are trained, educated, 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 traffic accident attorneys are here to review the facts relevant to your car accident injury claim to determine which statute of limitations (filing deadlines) apply in your case.  We take the necessary actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.

In addition to Georgia’s crucial legal time deadlines, there are many other critical reasons for not delaying in seeking legal assistance and advice.  Most injury victims are surprised to learn that many times their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts sometimes those of a household relative) may 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 critical special notice requirements and legal time deadlines, there are many additional reasons to act without delay.  By way of example only, with the passage of time car accident eyewitnesses can become difficult to find, or witnesses might forget important details.  Other times, important evidence can disappear or be destroyed.

Our Auto Accident Injury and Wrongful Death Attorneys at Montlick & Associates, review all of the applicable avenues of recovery, and we will ensure that all relevant legal and contractual notification deadlines are met.  We also work quickly to protect essential crash evidence, and interview witnesses as appropriate.  Do not delay in protecting your valuable legal rights and contact Montlick & Associates today.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?  

Georgia car accident laws typically allow car accident injury victims or family members who tragically lost loved ones in crashes to obtain economic and non-economic damages from negligent drivers and companies responsible for the accident.  Negligent parties could include individuals, governmental bodies, companies, public utilities, public agencies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or in concert with each other.

Our attorneys work hard to recover all types of monetary compensation that our clients are entitled to receive 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 a car accident injury victim might recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the facts of their accident.  As such, every car wreck claim is unique.  Predicting the exact dollar amount that you and your family will obtain from an auto accident case is usually not possible at the initial stages of a car accident case.  However, our attorneys are able to advise our clients on predicted range of possible accident case values, once all of the accident evidence has been reviewed, we understand the extent, nature, and long-term effects of the accident injuries, we have examined all medical expenses and records, and we have reviewed the applicable Georgia law, and the strength of the evidence.  

Our attorneys work hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the value of their claims according to Georgia law.

Montlick & Associates-Fighting Hard & Winning Cases® since 1984! 

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 38 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 38 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.
