Top Four Factors That Lead Clients to Choose Montlick & Associates

Factor #1: Our experience pays! Montlick and Associates has a team made up over 44 attorneys and 170 staff, Our law firm has focused on personal injury and wrongful death claims since 1984, and, given our long track record of obtaining value on our clients’ cases, insurance companies know we are prepared, in the appropriate cases, to file suit and pursue litigation, ultimately to trial, if they do not offer enough money to compensate our clients.

Factor #2: Our lawyers believe exceptional customer service is essential to providing high-quality legal representation.  We have built our reputation as a leading law firm by consistently providing exceptional legal services to each and every client.  While maximizing our clients' financial recoveries is a top priority, our clients also value the fact we promptly return phone calls, answer emails, and keep them advised regarding important and critical case developments.

Factor #3: Our lawyers focus exclusively on helping injury victims and their families.  We limit our practice to personal injury cases on behalf of plaintiffs.  We do not defend corporations or insurance companies.

Factor #4: Our lawyers employ all their experience, expertise, and resources to obtaining the fullest recovery for clients.  In the wake of a car accident or any other incident that causes you to suffer harm, it will take time for the extent and nature of your injuries to become clear.  Since large insurance carriers handle a high volume of claims, they often try to limit their financial exposure by offering a settlement before an injured person has had the chance to seek medical care, explore their medical condition, and, ultimately, complete their course of treatment in order to get well. Premature settlement offers of this nature typically fall far short of the actual value of a claim.  The goal of the adjuster is to discourage you from learning the full extent of your injuries or speaking to an attorney to learn about your legal rights.  Insurance companies’ objectives are to pay you as little money as possible, or even to deny your claim entirely.   Insurance companies hope you will not hire an attorney, because they realize you are not trained and may make a strategic and costly mistake.  Our personal injury attorneys aggressively strive to maximize the value of our client’s claims, including compensation for medical and rehabilitation expenses, damage to property (e.g. vehicle repair/replacement), Pain and Suffering, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, mental distress, and even punitive damages for cases in which the defendant engages in malicious, willful or wanton conduct.

If you or a family member has suffered harm caused by the actions of another person or business, our experienced personal injury attorneys at Montlick and Associates offer a Free Case Review.  We can advise you of your legal rights, your right to money damages, and important steps to avoid compromising your legal claim.  Contact our law firm 24/7 via our Free Live Chat or by calling us at 1-800-LAW-NEED (1-800-529-6333).  We also might associate local counsel to deliver the best legal services at no additional cost to you.

Studies Reveal Hiring an Attorney Significantly Improves Personal Injury Recoveries

Insurers do not want you to retain an attorney because insurance industry research shows injury victims with an attorney are generally more likely to obtain financial compensation and to recover more money in a settlement or verdict than someone without an attorney.  In a study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC), research revealed that parties who retain an attorney recover substantially larger amounts through settlements and judgments than parties who proceed without a lawyer. Injury victims with an attorney received compensation that was 350 % higher than individuals handling their own claims/lawsuits.  The decision not to hire an attorney also greatly increased the prospect that an injured person would receive no recovery.  The IRC report found that 85 percent of the claims successfully resolved with a monetary payout involved plaintiffs with attorneys. 

Key Ways Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help You

Pushing for an Efficient Resolution of Your Claim: Insurance companies commonly delay claims in an effort to exploit claimants’ inexperience with the law and claims process.  Our attorneys work diligently on our clients’ cases to conclusion. Although the pursuit of justice on behalf of our clients can vary in length depending on the facts and circumstances of the case, including how long it takes for our clients to complete their treatment, we work to move our clients’ cases through the claims process with the goal of resolving the claims as quickly as we can under the circumstances. However, our top priority is to maximize the amount of compensation our clients obtain for their injuries.

Assessing & Proving the Value of Your Damage Claim: Although certain out-of-pocket damages like medical bills, property damage (e.g. vehicle replacement or repairs), and lost wages are itemizable and can be more precisely quantified, less tangible damages, such as Pain and Suffering, mental distress, loss of companionship and/or parental guidance, impaired enjoyment of life, and punitive damages depend on the circumstances of what happened as well as the ways in which our clients’ lives are affected. In order to maximize the value of our clients’ cases, depending on the nature of the injury as well as when appropriate, our firm retains the assistance of medical and, when feasible, even financial professionals in order prove the extent of our clients’ injuries, disability and loss of capacity to make a living.  

Shielding You from Sharp Insurance Company Practices: Many people place trust in the insurance adjuster for the party that caused their injuries and other losses.  While adjusters might seem friendly and helpful, their financial interests are directly aligned with that of the insurance company that serves as their employer.  Insurance carriers use a wide range of unfair practices to diminish the value or deny legitimate claims.  By way of example only, insurers might attempt to shift blame for your injuries to you, dispute the severity of your injuries, scour your medical records for evidence that your injury predated the incident in question, or even review your social media pages to find pictures or posts that potentially compromise your claim.  Because Montlick and Associates has been representing personal injury and wrongful death victims for over 35 years, we have the experience to protect your rights in the face of sharp insurance company practices.

Effectively Complying with Legal Standards, Evidentiary Rules, and Legal Procedures: Law libraries are filed with books containing relevant court decisions, statutes, procedure and evidentiary rules, and many other legal resources.  Success in a civil lawsuit for damages necessitates a thorough understanding of the legal standards, procedures, and rules relevant to a personal injury case. Even in the absence of litigation, the goal of maximizing an insurance settlement will entail knowledge of insurance policy deadlines, notice of claim requirements, and more.  Our personal injury lawyers serve North Carolina injury victims by navigating these legal obstacles and helping clients steer clear of insurance company traps.  Our lawyers have the knowledge to anticipate these potential issues and legal complications.

We Take the Risk and Bear the Upfront Costs: The process of successfully pursuing a value settlement for your personal injury claim can be costly.  In cases that do not involve litigation these expenses can include private investigator costs, costs associated with obtaining medical bills and records, and in some cases, even independent medical examiners or expert witnesses. When litigation is necessary, these costs can involve deposition fees, expert witness fees, court fees, trial exhibits, forensic testing, and more. Our law firm advances these expenses so that our clients do not have to bear the financial investment of funding their claim or litigation.  Montlick and Associates also handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid if we secure a recovery for our clients.

Fighting for the Maximum Financial Recovery for the Injured and Their Loved Ones

Complying with Timing Deadlines

The insurance claim and personal injuries litigation process involve strict timing requirements.  Generally, in North Carolina, the statute of limitations is three years from the date the plaintiff sustained injury. However, there are exceptions that can shorten lengthen the deadline! An attorney who carefully analyzes your situation can advise you all of the deadlines and notice requirements that may apply to your case. Examples of exceptions include when the plaintiff is a minor, if the claim involves products liability, and if the defendant leaves the state for more than one year. In cases involving claims against government entities and/or municipalities, even shorter deadlines may apply. Statutes of limitations also vary by state and Federal law, as well as by the types of claims being presented.  For example, a statute of limitation for a personal injury claim in any given state may vary from, say, a breach of contract claim, and a .  It is also critical to note that failure to comply with the statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to pursue compensation for your damages.  It is important to discuss any case with an attorney, who can ascertain the appropriate statute of limitation that would apply.

There are other reasons not to delay in seeking legal assistance, such as contractual notice requirements of victims’ own insurance companies for the purposes of pursuing uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, including those belonging to household relatives. Failure to comply with contractual provisions can bar victims and their families from receiving substantial compensation from such policies. 

In addition to these legal and contractual deadlines, there are other reasons to act without delay:  important evidence necessary for your case can disappear or become destroyed, or witnesses can go missing or forget what happened.  Our attorneys act appropriately to preserve important evidence. We also ensure that required notices and actions are taken to preserve your rights to compensation.

Determining All Responsible Parties and Pursuing Additional Avenues of Recovery

Not all cases involve one defendant and one insurance carrier.  Sometimes multiple defendants are responsible for a particular plaintiff’s injuries.  In other cases, multiple liability policies, including excess liability and umbrella policies, can provide valuable compensation to injury victims. Injury victims can also make claims against their own policies in the event they possess uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. We examine each case carefully, and, in many situations, have been able to identify potential avenues of recovery that our plaintiffs were not aware of, or that the insurance company did not disclose.

How Much Is Your North Carolina Personal Injury Claim Worth?

The task of evaluating your claim requires investigation and analysis because many factors affect the value of a personal injury case.  An injury victim’s right of recovery will generally have two major components: (1) special damages and (2) general damages.  Special damages can be itemized, and include medical expenses, lost wages, out-of-pocket costs, property damage, and more.  Alternatively, general damages are more subjective, and encompass Pain and Suffering, physical disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of consortium, impaired quality of life, physical impairment, and more.  In cases involving malicious, willful, or wanton conduct on part of the defendant, punitive damages also might be awarded to punish the defendant and discourage such conduct in the future.

The amount of damages a victim might recover is specific to the facts and circumstances of a given case. As such, every individual claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount of compensation that you and your family might receive from a claim is usually not possible at the beginning of your case but our attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted case values once all of the evidence has been assembled, we have learned the extent and long-term effects of the injury, we have reviewed all medical records and expenses, and evaluated the applicable law and the strength of the evidence.  Our attorneys fight hard on behalf of each individual client in order to maximize the value of their claims under the applicable law.  In the appropriate circumstances, and particularly if those responsible are refusing to offer enough money to compensate a given client, we are prepared to navigate the litigation process and ultimately take cases to trial.
