Our legal professionals work very hard to maximize the value of our clients’ cases in accordance with applicable Georgia law.  After a traffic accident caused by the carelessness of a negligent driver, you may not be aware of the full extent and nature of your personal injuries, expenses, lost wages, property loss, and monetary damages.  Insurance companies often try to take advantage of a claimant´s lack of understanding of the car accident property loss and injury claims process.  

Car accident insurance company claims adjusters often try to offer accident compensation quickly and early, before you understand the severity of your personal injuries and monetary damages, and before you or your loved one have received quality legal advice.  Auto accident insurance claims adjusters often pressure a personal injury claimant to agree to a quick, “low-ball” accident settlement to resolve the victim´s claim.  However, once you or your loved one´s car crash case has been settled, the accident case may not be reopened, even if you or your loved one discovers later that the personal injuries, accident expenses, and other financial losses are much more severe.  

Montlick & Associates works hard for every one of our clients.  We fight hard to obtain maximum compensation for those injured or tragically killed in an accident.  Our legal professionals strive to recover all of the compensation you or your loved one is entitled to receive according to Georgia personal injury law.*

Montlick & Associates is a client-driven personal injury law firm.  Since 1984, our attorneys and legal support professionals have been client-focused and dedicated to our mission of providing exceptional legal service to each one of our clients.  We keep in touch with our clients on a regular basis.  We keep our clients fully informed of all breaking, all-important case developments.  

Our law practice is limited to personal injury law.  Montlick & Associates believes that our car accident lawyers are able to provide the most exceptional job possible by concentrating their law practice to one area of the law.  Our law firm only represents people who have been harmed, injured, or killed in accidents, never insurance companies or big corporations.  

Our Experience Pays!TM  Our personal injury law firm has been assisting injury victims and families who tragically lost a family member to recover maximum monetary compensation for over 38 years.  Our personal injury law firm has obtained Billions of dollars in recoveries for our clients.*

If you or a member of your family was injured, or tragically killed due to the negligent actions of another person or a corporation, simply contact Montlick & Associates for your Free Consultation.  We are ready to explain your legal rights and provide your with experienced legal advice about the important steps to protect you or your loved one´s  valuable legal rights.  There are no fees unless you 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:

Auto accident injury and wrongful death claimants are frequently at a sizable disadvantage when hurt in a car accident caused by a reckless or distracted driver.  The first few days following an automobile accident are extremely painful and stressful.  You or your loved one will have several significant legal and medical matters to deal with, such as lost wages, physical injuries, car repairs, renting an automobile, post-traumatic stress, grieving, depression, and stress associated with potentially having to gather and protect important accident evidence.  Families are often overwhelmed with medical expenses, and other motor vehicle accident-related bills that must be paid although the victim is unable to return to work and earn a living.  

Car accident insurance claims adjusters know how to take advantage of an accident victim’s lack of experience and knowledge of the motor vehicle accident injury and property damage claims process.  Their ultimate goal, as a for-profit corporation, is to collect as much money as possible in monthly insurance premiums, while paying out the least amount of money possible on auto accident property damage and personal injury claims.  They accomplish this goal by instructing their auto accident insurance claims adjusters to diminish the value of claims, to delay payment on claims, and to outright decline payment on accident claims.  Insurance representatives regularly try to record interviews with car accident claimants in an attempt to record any remarks or statements the adjusters can use later against the claimants.  Insurance companies do not want you to have your case reviewed by an experienced car accident lawyer or for you to retain an attorney.  This is because their own insurance industry research demonstrates that insurance companies pay out significantly more money to accident injury claimants who have retained qualified legal representation (see more on this below). 

One study published by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) illustrated 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, knowledgeable legal counsel by your side in your Columbia County auto accident case may dramatically increase your prospects of winning your case and receiving the full financial compensation your case deserves.

How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Georgia Accident Victims

We Get to Work Fast!  Once you have contacted our firm, we have answered your questions, advised you of your legal rights, and you or your loved one chose our firm, our legal professionals will work quickly to take the necessary steps to protect your valuable legal rights.  Let us worry about your legal matters, so you and your family can focus on getting well and returning to a better place in your life.

We Assume the Financial Risk:  No Fee Or Costs Unless You Win!  We represent our clients’ personal injury cases on a “contingency fee” basis.  This attorney 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 for the crash, personal injuries, and other accident-related damages.  

Overcoming Insurance Company Traps:  At first, car collision insurance company adjusters and their agents will appear friendly, sympathetic, and cooperative.  However, their primary mission is to preserve the financial interests of the insurance company’s owners and policy holders by increasing shareholder profits by reducing accident claim payouts.  In other words, the car accident insurance company’s financial interests are directly in conflict with the monetary value of your claim and your financial interests. Montlick & Associates is in business to fight for maximum compensation! 

Insurance companies manage an enormous number of personal injury and wrongful death claims each year, and they have implemented highly effective tactics and strategies to diminish, delay, or even dismiss financial payouts.  Unfortunately, many claimants decide to speak directly with insurance companies and unknowingly compromise the monetary value of their claims.  By way of example only, a car accident claimant might, in good faith, agree to providing a recorded statement, without having legal counsel present, and unintentionally provide damaging statements or make comments that without clarity could be taken out of context causing the adjuster to devalue, delay, or deny a claim.

Not being a trained car accident injury lawyer, it is understandable that several auto collision victims are not knowledgeable of their valuable, time-sensitive legal rights or the essential actions required to protect those valuable rights.  Another frequent error made by some auto accident claimants is settling their claims before knowing the full extent of their crash-related personal injuries, expenses, lost earnings, and other financial damages.  Due to the complexities of Georgia law, many claimants often mistakenly commit other tactical missteps that damage their case.  

Our experienced traffic accident attorneys assist clients by fighting and negotiating against the at-fault party’s insurance company.  Our firm understands the true value of your case and our attorneys navigate the insurance company mine traps set for our clients.

Assessing the Value of Your Accident Injury Claim:  Evaluation of a personal injury or wrongful death claim involves not only the calculation of medical expenses, lost earnings, and motor vehicle repair costs, but also the more 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).  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.  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 motor vehicle collision attorneys can review and analyze the facts and circumstances relevant to your claim to determine which statute of limitations (filing deadlines) apply.  Our legal professionals take the necessary actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.

In addition to Georgia’s legal time deadlines (such as statutes of limitations), there are several other important reasons for not delaying in seeking legal advice and assistance.  Many injured persons are surprised to discover that in many cases their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts sometimes those of a resident relative) can contain valuable insurance coverages, 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 legal time deadlines and notice requirements, there are several additional reasons to act without delay.  By way of example only, with the passage of time accident eyewitnesses can become hard to find, or eyewitnesses can forget important details.  Other times, crucial evidence can be destroyed or disappear.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?  

Georgia Car Accident Laws typically allow car accident injury victims or the families who tragically lost loved ones to recover financial compensation from reckless individuals or corporations who caused the traffic accident and the victims´ losses.  Negligent parties can include individuals, companies, public agencies, public utilities, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or in concert with each other. 

Our law firm is aggressive and we pursue 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
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive Damages if the defendant’s conduct is malicious or egregiously reckless
  • Loss of companionship, consortium and guidance
  • Monetary compensation for emotional distress

    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 monetary damages an automobile accident injury victim might recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the facts and circumstances of the accident.  As such, each individual traffic accident claim is unique.  Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your loved one may recover from an accident injury claim is generally not possible at the beginning of your auto collision case.  However, our attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted case values, once: all of the evidence has been reviewed, we know the extent and long-term effects of the personal injury or injuries, we have examined all of the medical expenses and records, and we have evaluated the relevant and applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.  

Our hardworking car wreck attorneys fight hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the value of their claims according to Georgia law.

Our Promise to You

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 38 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. Or use our 24/7 online chat right here on our website.

To 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.

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 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.
