“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!®”
Our attorneys work very hard to maximize our clients' claim values under Georgia car accident law. The first few days following a car crash caused by another's distracted or negligent driving are stressful. At the initial stages of the auto accident insurance claim process, you will probably not know the nature and full extent of your personal injuries or the full value of your auto accident case. Most auto collision victims do not understand how valuable their legal rights are, and the amount of monetary compensation they might receive under Georgia persoanl injury laws. Insurance companies rely on an automobile accident victim's lack of understanding and experience with the car accident insurance claims process. Insurance company representatives typically try to take advantage of a claimant's lack of knowledge of how much money they may be entitled to receive.
Auto accident claims adjusters usually try to push a personal injury victim (also known as the "claimant") into agreeing to financial compensation early, before the auto accident claimant knows the true value of their claim, and before the claimant has obtained free, valuable legal advice from an experienced Georgia auto accident attorney. Car accident insurance claims adjusters are trained to persuade claimants into accepting quick, "low-ball" settlements to conclude their claims. This is because once the motor vehicle accident case has been settled, the claim or case may not be reopened, even if the auto accident victim learns later that his or her personal injuries require additional expensive medical treatment, or their injuries and damages are more serious than they previously thought. Montlick & Associates works hard and fights hard for ever client to recover maximum compensation for which they are entitled under Georgia law.*

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims
Automobile accident injury claimants and their loved ones are often at a significant disadvantage after being harmed in motor vehicle wrecks caused by negligent drivers. The first few days after an accident can be overwhelming. Car accident victims usually have many serious legal and medical issues to cope with, such as disability, lost earnings, costly medical treatment, and pain and suffering – all while stressing over when will they be able to return to work.
Insurance companies' primary objective, as for-profit businesses, are to collect premiums while paying out as little monetary compensation as possible on auto insurance claims. Accident adjusters accomplish this objective by often delaying, minimizing, and denying car accident injury claims. In fact, insurance claims adjusters will often attempt to conduct recorded interviews of car accident victims in an effort to record any comments, statements or information that they could use against the accident injury claimant. Insurance companies will often try to persuade claimants to avoid speaking with an attorney about their motor vehicle accident claim, because their own insurance industry research studies demonstrate that insurance companies pay out much more 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 Forest Park car accident case by an aggressive personal injury lawyer could substantially improve your prospects of success and receiving the financial compensation 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 legal rights and you select our law firm, our legal team will promptly begin taking the necessary actions to protect your legal rights. Let our legal professionals 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 personal 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 company adjusters and representatives may, at first, seem very cooperative and sympathetic, but their ultimate objective is to protect the financial interests of the insurance company’s policyholders and to boost their profits for the company and its shareholders. In other words, the insurance company’s monetary interests are directly in conflict with the amount of money they will payout on your claim.
Insurance companies negotiate hundreds of thousands of personal injury claims each year. They utilize effective strategies and techniques to delay, diminish, and even deny financial payouts. Unfortunately, many auto accident claimants who talk directly with insurance companies often unknowingly damage the economic value of their car crash injury claims. For example, an auto accident injury claimant might provide a recorded statement without the presence of an experienced personal injury attorney, and unknowingly reveal damaging facts about their crash or make comments that could be taken out of context to deny, diminish, or delay payment on their traffic accident claim. Another common mistake made by some auto accident injury victims is settling their claims before they know the nature and full extent of their car accident-related injuries. Due to the complexities of Georgia injury law, many car accident victims may also mistakenly commit other tactical missteps.
Our experienced car collision injury attorneys have the experienced, resources, and manpower necessary to navigate the insurance company mine traps on behalf of our clients and negotiate against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Assessing the Value of Your Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Claim: Evaluation of a car collision claim with personal injuries or wrongful death involves not only the calculation of vehicle repair costs, auto depreciation, medical bills, and lost wages, but also the difficult-to-value intangible monetary damages, such as pain and suffering, diminished earning capacity, mental anguish, and punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant them). Our lawyers have the experience necessary to determine the actual value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of accidents. When appropriate, we may also conduct research into settlements and verdicts 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 necessary, plaintiffs (the injured party) need a mastery of the rules of civil procedure, evidentiary rules, court rules, case law, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our hardworking attorneys and legal professionals are educated, trained, and experienced with the nuances of Georgia car accident law, and how to navigate the complex personal injury claims process. We fight hard to recover 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 legal time deadlines, there are several other critical 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 special notice requirements and important legal time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without delay. By way of example only, with the passage of time eyewitnesses can become hard to locate, or witnesses can 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 automobile accident injury victims or family members who have lost loved ones in crashes to recover economic and non-economic damages from negligent individuals or companies responsible. Negligent parties may include companies, individuals, public utilities, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting in concert with each other or alone.
Our motor vehicle accident attorneys work hard and fight hard to recover all types of monetary compensatory 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 monetary damages an auto accident injury victim may recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances and facts of their car accident case. As such, every car crash claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount that you and your family will receive from an auto accident claim is usually not possible at the initial stages of your car accident case. However, our lawyers are able to advise our clients on the range of possible auto accident case values, once all of the evidence has been evaluated, we know the nature, extent, and long-term effects of the personal injuries, we have examined all medical records and expenses, and we have reviewed the applicable Georgia law, and the strength of the evidence.
Our car wreck injury lawyers fight hard and work hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the financial value of their claims under Georgia law.

Our Promise to You
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.
Protect you from powerful insurance companies. One of the first things the insurance adjuster will typically say is that you do not need a lawyer. 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 39 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 39 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.
