“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!®”
Our car accident injury and wrongful death lawyers fight hard to maximize our clients' case values under Georgia personal injury law. The first few days following a traffic accident caused by someone else's negligence or distracted driving are stressful. At the beginning stages of the car accident insurance claim process, you might not understand the complete extent and nature of your car accident-related injuries or the true value of your accident case. Most motor vehicle accident victims do not know how valuable their legal rights are, or the full amount of economic compensation they should receive in under Georgia Law. Insurance companies rely on an auto accident victims' lack of knowledge and experienced of the car accident insurance claims process to deny or minimize their claims.
Auto accident claims adjusters usually try to push a personal injury victim into accepting accident settlement compensation early, before the auto accident claimant knows the actual value of their car accident claim, and before the car accident claimant has obtained their free, valuable legal advice from an experienced Georgia automobile accident lawyer. Car accident insurance claims adjusters are trained to persuade auto accident claimants into accepting a quick, "low-ball" settlements to close their accident claims. This is because once the auto wreck claim has been settled, it cannot ever be reopened, even if the accident victim finds out later that his or her related injuries require additional medical treatment, or their injuries and damages are more serious than they had previously thought. Montlick & Associates fights hard for every client to recover maximum compensation to which they are entitled in accordance with Georgia law.*

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims
Car crash victims usually have many severe legal and medical issues to deal with, such as lack of transportation, costly medical treatment, property damage, disability, lost earnings, and pain and suffering – all while stressing over when they will be able to return to work.
The insurance companies' goals, as for-profit companies, are to take in monthly premiums while paying out the least amount of financial compensation as possible on car accident insurance claims. Accident insurance adjusters often accomplish this goal by delaying, minimizing, and denying auto accident claims. In fact, auto accident insurance claims adjusters will usually attempt to conduct recorded interviews of accident victims in an effort to record any comments, information, or statements that the adjusters might use against the auto accident claimant. Insurance companies will typically try to persuade claimants to avoid talking with an attorney about their car accident claim, because their own insurance industry research shows that insurance companies often pay out 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 representation in your North Decatur auto accident case by an experienced car accident lawyer could substantially increase your chances of success and recovering the monetary 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 attorneys advise you of your valuable legal rights and when you pick our law firm for your case, our legal professionals will immediately begin working you case and we will take the necessary actions to protect your valuable legal rights. Let our legal staff 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 individua(s) or company(s) responsible.
Overcoming Insurance Company Traps: Insurance company representatives and their adjusters may, at first, seem very sympathetic and cooperative, but their ultimate goal is to protect the financial interests of the insurance company’s policyholders and to increase their profits for the company and company shareholders. In other words, the insurance company’s monetary interests are directly in conflict with the amount of money they will want to payout on your car accident claim.
Insurance companies negotiate hundreds of thousands of car wreck claims each year. They use effective strategies, tactics, and techniques to delay, diminish, and even deny financial payouts. Unfortunately, many car accident claimants who talk directly with insurance companies often unknowingly damage the economic value of their auto accident injury claims. For example, a motor vehicle collision injury claimant might agree to and give a recorded statement without the presence of a car accident injury attorney, or unknowingly divulge damaging information about their car accident or make comments that will be used and taken out of context to delay, deny, or diminish payment on their car accident claim. Another common mistake made by some car collision injury victims is settling their accident claims before they know the full nature and extent of their accident-related injuries. Due to the complexities of Georgia personal injury law, many car wreck victims often mistakenly commit other tactical missteps.
Our car accident injury lawyers have the resources, experience, and manpower necessary to navigate the auto accident insurance company mine traps on behalf of our clients and negotiate against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Assessing the Value of Your Auto Accident Injury Claim: Evaluation of a motor vehicle collision claim with personal injuries or wrongful death involves not only the calculation of vehicle repair costs, medical bills, and lost wages, but also the difficult-to-value intangible financial damages, such as diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant them). Our Georgia personal injury lawyers also have the experience necessary to determine the actual value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of auto accidents. When appropriate, our law firm may also conduct research into verdicts and settlements involving similar types of cases in comparable jurisdictions to quantify a predicted range of value.
Navigating Legal Complexities: While many auto accident cases settle out of court, when litigation is unavoidable, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, case law, evidentiary rules, court rules, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our hardworking lawyers and legal 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 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 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 important legal time deadlines and special notice requirements, there are several additional reasons to act without delay. By way of example only, with the passage of time accident witnesses can become difficult to locate, or witnesses might forget important details. Other times, important evidence can disappear or be destroyed.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?
Georgia auto accident law typically allows car accident injury victims or family members who have lost family members in accidents to recover economic and non-economic damages from negligent companies and individuals who are responsible for the crash. Negligent parties may include individuals, public utilities, companies, governmental bodies, public agencies, other business organizations, and others, either acting in concert with each other or alone.
Our personal injury lawyers fight hard to obtain all forms of financial compensatory that our clients are entitled to recover in accordanc with 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 economic damages a car accident injury victim could recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances and the facts of their auto accident case. As such, every auto wreck claim is different. Predicting the exact dollar amount that you and your family will receive from a car accident case is typically not possible at the initial stages of your car accident case. However, our attorneys are able to advise our clients on predicted range of possible auto accident case value, once all of the evidence has been evaluated, we understand the full extent, nature, and long-term effects of the personal injuries, we have reviewed all medical records and expenses, and we have examined the applicable Georgia law, and the strength of the evidence.
Our auto accident attorneys work hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the economic value of their claims according to Georgia 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 that 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.

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.

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.
