The Top Four Reasons Why People Select Montlick & Associates:
“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!”™
1. Our attorneys, paralegals, and legal support staff work hard to maximize the monetary value of each of our clients’ cases under Georgia personal injury law. Initially following any type of traffic accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you probably do not know the full nature and extent of your accident injuries. Insurance companies are well aware of this, and they often attempt to offer financial compensation early, before you have had a chance to speak with a qualified auto accident attorney, and before you have an opportunity to learn about your valuable legal rights. In fact, insurance company claims adjusters and their agents often try to pressure personal injury claimants to accept quick, “low-ball” settlement checks to settle their accident claims. This is because they understand that once your auto accident injury case has settled, your accident case cannot ever be reopened, even if you find out later that you need additional medical care or surgery, or that your injuries are more severe than you initially thought. Our Georgia lawyers understand the actual monetary values of our clients claims, and we fight hard to maximize the monetary compensation to which our clients are entitled to recover under Georgia law. We also assist our clients in navigating the traffic accident claims process, and advise them on how to counter common insurance company tactics to reduce the value of their claims.
2. Montlick & Associates is a client-driven firm. Since 1984, our law firm has been dedicated to our goal of providing exceptional service to each and every client. We stay in touch with our clients on a regular basis, promptly return phone calls, and keep them fully informed of all important developments.
3. Our law practice is limited to personal injury law. We believe that our legal professionals can do the finest job possible by focusing and limiting their practice to one area of the law. We only represent injured people, never insurance companies or corporations.
4. Our Experience Pays!™ Our law firm has been assisting injured people and their families in recovering the monetary compensation their cases deserve for over 38 years, and our law firm has recovered Billions of dollars for our clients.

Why Retaining Experienced Attorneys Can Make a Difference to Personal Injury Claimants in Decatur, Georgia (GA):
Personal injury claimants and their loved ones are usually at a significant disadvantage following accidents caused by negligent drivers. The first few days after an accident with injures can be overwhelming. Personal injury victims often have several important legal issues to cope with, including , the damage to their vehicles, lost income, physical disability, and pain and suffering. Moreover, families are typically overwhelmed with accident-related expenses, staggering medical bills and other costs that must be paid while injured loved ones worry over when they will be able to return to work.
Insurance claims adjusters and their agents know how to take advantage of an injury claimant´s lack of understanding with the accident injury claims process. The insurance companies’ goal, as for-profit organizations, is to take in insurance premiums while lower payouts to accident claimants by delaying, denying and minimizing claims. In some cases, accident insurance claims adjusters employ effective tactics in order to do so. For example, insurance adjusters often try to conduct recorded interviews of motor vehicle accident victims in an attempt to record any comments or statements that they may use against claimants. This tactic can be particularly effective when the injured victim isn´t represented by an experienced accident attorney serving Decatur, Georgia. An accident injury claimant that provides a recorded statement to an insurance claims adjuster could inadvertently say damaging remarks or provide answers to tricky questions that can later be used out of context to damage the victim’s case. In many cases, insurance companies try to discourage potential plaintiffs from consulting with or retaining personal injury lawyers, because their own insurance industry research demonstrates that they generally pay out significantly more money to accident victims who have retained legal representation (see more on this below).
An Insurance Research Council (IRC) study illustrated that
- 85% of personal injury claim payouts from insurance companies went to personal injury victims represented by an attorney.
- Injured individuals who retained an attorney generally received substantially greater financial recoveries than unrepresented parties.
- On average, personal injury claimants with attorneys received 300 percent more financial compensation than those who did not retain an attorney.
For these reasons alone, having an experienced car accident lawyer in your Decatur accident case can be a critical step to improving your prospects of success and receiving the financial compensation you deserve.
How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Decatur Accident Victims
We Get to Work Fast! At the beginning of legal representation, our attorneys immediately begin taking the necessary steps required to protect our clients’ rights. We want our clients to focus on getting well while we handle the nuances of the claims process.
Overcoming Insurance Company Traps: Insurance company claims adjusters and their representatives may seem caring and cooperative; however, their primary goal is to preserve the financial interests of the insurance company’s policyholders and to increase their profits for their investors and shareholders. This means the insurance company’s financial interests are in direct conflict with your financial interests and the value of your case.
Insurance companies handle an enormous amount of traffic accident claims each year. They utilize effective negotiation strategies and techniques to reduce, delay or even deny claims payouts. Unfortunately, many individuals who speak directly with the at-fault party’s insurance company after a car accident unwittingly compromise their claims’ monetary value. Our lawyers help our Decatur clients overcome these pitfalls, and help preserve the value of their personal injury claims.
Assessing the Value of Your Georgia 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 applicable). Our attorneys know how to value our clients’ claims and, when appropriate, also conduct research into verdicts and settlements involving similar types of cases in comparable jurisdictions in order to quantify a range of case value.
Navigating Legal Complexities: While most traffic accident cases settle out of court, when litigation is required, plaintiffs need allies who have a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, evidentiary rules, court rules, case law, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our Georgia attorneys are trained, educated and experienced with the nuances of the law and how to navigate the complex personal injury claims process. Montlick & Associates fights hard to obtain all of the financial 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 motor vehicle accident, but there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline! For example, claims against the government have shorter deadlines. Moreover, 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 also be extended when a minor is involved. Statutes of limitations also vary from state to state.
Our experienced motor vehicle accident lawyers can review the circumstances and facts relevant to your case to determine which statute of limitations (deadlines) apply.
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 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 (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 notice requirements and mandatory time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without hesitation. By way of example only, with the passage of time accident witnesses can become difficult to locate, or they might forget important details. Other times, critical evidence can disappear or be destroyed. Our legal professionals take the required actions to meet all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients, and make sure that all essential evidence is collected and preserved when appropriate.

What is My Decatur Auto Accident Case Worth?
Georgia accident injury law usually allows accident injury victims to recover monetary damages from the individual or company responsible for their injuries and property damage when someone has been negligent. Negligent parties can include: individuals, companies, owner-operators, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and public utilities either acting in concert with each other or alone.
Our hardworking personal injury lawyers pursue all forms of financial damages that our clients are entitled to receive in accordance to Georgia law.
The value of an accident injury or wrongful death 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
Some examples of the types of damages our personal injury lawyers have recovered on behalf of our Georgia clients are compensation for:
- 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 damages (when applicable)
In cases of a tragic, fatal accidental death of a loved one, surviving family members may be entitled to the full value of the life of the victim, medical expenses incurred prior to death, burial costs, and more. The amount of financial compensation an accident injury victim recovers in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances of the accident and the facts of a given case. As such, every individual case is unique. Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family will receive from an auto accident claim is generally not possible at the beginning of your accident case. However, our experienced attorneys are able to advise our clients on a range of predicted accident 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 evaluated the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence. Our car accident and wrongful death attorneys fight hard on behalf of each client to maximize the value of their claims according to Georgia law.

Our Promise to You
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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, treat our client’s cases as if they were our own, and we will always do the right thing when it comes to our clients.
5. 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."
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
