“The Powerhouse Firm that Puts You First!®”
Our attorneys and law support professionals work hard to maximize the case value for each of our clients under Georgia car accident law. The first few days after a motor vehicle crash caused by another driver's carelessness can be intimidating, overwhelming, and stressful. At the beginning of the claims process, you likely do not know the full extent of your injuries and the total value of your claim because most people do not know their legal rights and the types of compensation they could receive under Georgia law. Insurance companies rely on an accident victim's lack of knowledge about the accident claims process and how much money the victim is entitled to receive. Car accident insurance claims adjusters often try to persuade the accident victim (also known as the "claimant") into accepting monetary compensation early, before the claimant understands the real value of their claim, and before the claimant has received free, valuable legal advice from an experienced, Georgia car accident attorney. Insurance claims adjusters are experienced negotiators who are trained to pressure claimants into accepting a quick, "low-ball" settlement check that will close their claim. This is because once an accident claim is settled, the claim cannot be reopened, even if the claimant discovers later his or her injuries require more expensive treatment, their motor vehicle needs additional repairs, their were owed money for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related monetary damages.
Montlick & Associates fights hard for each and every client in order to recover the maximum compensation to which they are entitled under the law.*

Why Retaining an Attorney Can Makes a Difference to Personal Injury Victims:
Motor vehicle accident injury victims and their loved ones are often at a substantial disadvantage after being harmed in traffic accidents caused by negligent drivers. The first few days following a motor vehicle accident can be overwhelming. Accident victims will have many important legal and medical issues to deal with, including disability, costly medical care, lost earnings, and "pain and suffering" – all while worrying about whether the insurance company will pay their claims.
Insurance company adjusters understand how to exploit a victim’s lack of knowledge and experience with the auto accident insurance claims process. Their ultimate mission, as a for-profit company, is to collect monthly premiums while paying out as little money as possible on accident insurance claims. They accomplish this by delaying, minimizing, and denying accident claims. In fact, insurance claims adjusters will usually try to conduct recorded interviews of car accident victims in an effort to record any statements or information they can later use against the claimant. Insurance companies try to talk claimants out of speaking with or retaining a car accident attorney, because their own industry research proves that they pay out considerably more compensation to injured people who have retained legal representation (see more on this below).
One study published by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) proved 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 Griffin auto accident case by an experienced personal injury attorney may significantly improve your prospects of success and receiving the monetary compensation you or your loved one 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 choose our firm, our legal team will promptly begin taking the necessary steps to protect your legal rights. Let our legal professionals worry about your legal matters, so 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 company adjusters handle an enormous number of traffic accident claims each year, and they have implemented effective tactics and strategies to delay, diminish, or even deny financial payouts. Unfortunately, many claimants who talk directly with insurance companies unwittingly damage the monetary value of their auto collision claims. For example, a car accident injury claimant might provide a recorded statement without the presence of a personal injury attorney and reveal damaging facts or make comments that will be taken out of context to deny a claim. Another common error made by some car accident injury victims is settling their claims before they understand the full nature and extent of their car accident-related injuries. Due to the complexities of Georgia personal injury law, many accident victims may also mistakenly commit other tactical missteps.
Our experienced personal injury attorneys have the experience 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 crash claim with personal injuries or wrongful death involves not only the calculation of medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repair costs, but also the difficult-to-value intangible monetary damages, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, diminished earning capacity, and punitive damages (when the defendant’s conduct is egregious enough to warrant them). Our attorneys have the experience to determine the true value of personal injury cases that involve a broad range of automobile 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, court rules, evidentiary rules, case law, and applicable Georgia statutes. Our 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 motor vehicle accident attorneys can review the circumstances and facts relevant to your 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 resident 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 eyewitnesses can forget important details. Other times, important evidence can be destroyed or disappear.

What is My Georgia Auto Accident Case Worth?
Georgia car accident laws typically permit accident injury victims or the families who have lost loved ones in motor vehicle accidents to recover monetary damages from negligent individuals or companies responsible. Negligent parties could include individuals, public utilities, companies, governmental bodies, public agencies, other business organizations, and others, either acting in concert with each other or alone.
Our aggressive and hardworking car accident attorneys fight hard to pursue all forms of compensatory damages that our clients are entitled to 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 an accident injury victim may receive in the State of Georgia is specific to the facts and circumstances of their case. As such, each individual collision claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount you and your family could receive from a car accident claim is usually not feasible at the beginning of your motor vehicle accident case. However, our attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of possible case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we know the nature, extent, and long-term effects of the personal injuries, we have examined all medical records and expenses, and we have evaluated the applicable Georgia law, and the strength of the evidence.
Our auto collision injury lawyers 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'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.
